They call it the latest spam craze.
Bitcoiners took to Bitcointalk what seemed to be an uncanny situation of receiving satoshis in their Bitcoin wallet. Reports also surfaced online that fund transfers amounting to 0.00000001 BTC left the recipients dumbfounded as to who and where such small BTC amounts came from—that is if they even notice it at a glance.
While this has alarmed certain users, receiving these so-called Bitcoin spam transactions should not be a cause of ruckus. The satoshis sent by the mysterious, generous individual will not harm the user’s bitcoins stored in the wallet nor in their privacy settings. In short, it just sits there.
However, there is a catch. Along with the ‘donation’ is a message that may invite recipients to visit a website. This is where it becomes interesting, at least for Bitcoin gambling market.
One of the key issues faced by new Bitcoin casinos and Bitcoin slots sites is marketing. Some owners are masters when it comes to developing games but are somewhat clueless when promoting their business.
With this option available for practically all Bitcoin gambling brands online, anyone may use this to their advantage and send out as many as a million satoshis to numerous players with a strategic marketing message.
A quick mention of a brand and its massive bonuses and exciting games might work, and the best part is that casinos do not even need to spend 1 BTC to reach a vast audience.
Bitcoin gaming players, on the other hand, can use this as a quirky method to stay up to date with the newest brands and promotions in the gambling scene. If left untouched, these satoshis may even add up to push the bankroll up by an inch.
However, Bitcoin casino operators thinking of employing this strategy may consider first its efficiency. Is it reasonable or is it counterproductive? Likewise, bettors who would rather get the job done of staying on top of the latest trends in the Bitcoin gambling market with their own hands may simply opt to ignore or open up another wallet to evade these messages—as the old adage goes, whatever rocks their boat.
