We're growing! It's great to see more BlockStamp Gamers joining us every day. Glad to have you with us!
No matter where you come from or how long you've been playing here, you'll have one thing in common with everyone else on the platform. You need BST!
As you probably know, all BlockStamp Games -- both the classic, fully blockchain-based games and those in Rooms -- are played for BST, the BlockStamp blockchain's native crypto coins.
So here's a quick guide to the best ways to get them.
Everybody's favorite way to get BST is via in-room airdrops and admin bonuses.
One of the great features of BlockStamp Games Rooms is that admins can:
- set up airdrops to incentivize new joiners and
- give Room players BST for any reason they want!
For players, that means the quickest and cheapest way to get BST is to join a new Room -- especially one with a generous admin ;)
Once you have a few BST you can of course grow your winnings. All you need is good luck ;)
But we wouldn't recommend counting on your winning streak to hold up forever.
So here are a few rather more practical ways to get your BST.
PayPal is an easy way to get BST -- for now.
You can buy BST directly with PayPal. If you've already got a PayPal account, this can be a convenient way to buy BST quickly.
You can find a link to do so in your BlockStamp Games wallet.
But here's the thing about PayPal. It's popular -- and that makes it popular with scammers.
We've had to add some know-your-customer (KYC) safeguards recently to cut down on abuse and keep this exchange option open for the community.
And as BlockStamp Games and the overall BlockStamp project continue to get more popular we expect more scammer attacks. It's the nature of the business.
And remember that PayPal doesn't like dealing with scammers either. They might impose greater security requirements on us and our players as time goes on.
So use this option while you can and consider a plan B!
Serious BlockStamp Gamers exchange BTC for BST.
The BST is available for exchange on many popular crypto exchanges. You can see a full list on the BlockStamp project's homepage.
The best way to get BST this way is to exchange it for BTC. And of course there are many ways to get BTC, the most popular crypto coin in the world.
What's the best way to get BTC? Well, you'll have to do a little homework here. You have a lot of options -- the BTC is the most popular cryptocurrency in the world -- but the right one for you will depend on your own situation.
For example, if you want to buy BST privately you can check out localbitcoins or find a Bitcoin ATM near you. Or if you're buying BTC with fiat on an exchange, you can expect to do some KYC paperwork.
Yes, it's a little extra effort. But if you're serious about getting BST this is the most reliable way we can see at the moment.
Coming soon: a reliable fiat / BST exchange!
We're working hard to set up a way for you trade your fiat directly for BST. This will offer the convenience of PayPal without all the worries about scammers. Stay tuned!
