How to use the new Lightning network bridge for instant Bitcoin top ups in crypto gaming
Transferring value between the real world and the world of gaming should be as simple as pressing a button. And now it is, literally!
You can now log in to the ZEBEDEE wallet with your Bitstamp account and transfer your BTC between both platforms with the push of a button.
Here’s how it works:
- Log into ZEBEDEE with your Bitstamp account
- Top up your ZBD Wallet with your BTC from Bitstamp
- Collect a bonus if you're new to Bitstamp
- Compete for Bitstamp’s 1 whole BTC in ZEBEDEE games!
Let us explain. You probably know that you can earn crypto by playing Bitcoin and other blockchain-based games. There are loads out there, and the most convenient way to top up or withdraw your BTC is through ZEBEDEE's ZBD Wallet. Zebedee enables programmable payments and small transactions to power economies for virtual worlds with near-zero fees. You can now connect your Bitstamp account with the ZBD Wallet, so you can instantly top up when it’s time to dive into your favorite Bitcoin game.
You’re familiar with "log in with Google", right? Well, it’s the same in the ZBD Wallet, you just tap “log in with Bitstamp”. Then you input your Bitstamp credentials and you’re good to go.
This will introduce a new option in your ZBD Wallet: “Top up from Bitstamp”. Tap that whenever you’re running out of funds and choose how much Bitcoin you’d like to transfer over to your ZBD Wallet, so you can get back to doing your thing. Everything runs on the Lightning Network, so the transfers are practically instant. You top up while you’re on the go.
We’ve made it so that your ZEBEDEE account automatically gets merged with your Bitstamp account if you’re using the same email address for both. If you’ve got different emails, don’t worry: Just log in with Bitstamp, set your Gamertag and transfer all your BTC to it from your old account, free of charge.
There’s one entire Bitcoin up for grabs
Up until now, we’ve been working closely with ZEBEDEE for quite some time by sponsoring their games and events. And to celebrate this integration, we’re giving away one whole Bitcoin through ZEBEDEE games!
We’ll be awarding portions of the BTC through a range of games and events that ZEBEDEE'll be running over the following weeks. Hop on to the ZEBEDEE’s CS:GO servers at any time and join their weekly events for a chance to earn free Bitcoin simply by gaming!
Connect your Bitstamp account with the ZBD Wallet for an easy flow of Bitcoin.
The next step is going both ways
This is just the beginning, as we’ll be launching this integration in stages. Currently, we’re focusing on providing you access to a safe and reliable source of Bitcoin that you can use to top up your ZEBEDEE balance. We’re planning to expand this integration in a way so you can withdraw your winnings from games to your Bitstamp account as well.
The integration is at the moment not available in the U.S, but we're working on getting it up and running there as well.
