Usually the first question asked when one learns about BITCORN is, "How do I get BITCORN?"
You can get BITCORN in quite a few places now:
If you have not already done so, please use our official referral link to create a new ProBit Exchange account.
If you already have some BITCORN you would like to start trading with please follow our Deposit BITCORN on Probit article.
If you would like to buy BITCORN on the exchange, simply create an account and once logged in go to the "Exchange" section:
Then search for BITCORN and add them to Favorites so you can get to them easier:
Then simply use the BUY and SELL tools as you normally would with any other market exchange. You can also send anything you buy here back to your desktop wallet for staking and setting up Masternodes or to the BITCORNFarms.com wallet to be used with Twitch and other social media platforms which we'll discuss further down.
The following is from our staking guide posted here:
You can download the wallet HERE.
For staking you will need a certain amount of Bitcorn in your wallet in order to start staking. This will depend on the current difficulty of the blockchain. You could start staking with 2,000,000 Bitcorn, however it is optimal if you have more Bitcorn within a stack. With this unspent transaction (UTXO), you can be eligible for staking rewards by keeping your wallet online.
Once you have your wallet open, you need to activate "Coin Control Features". You can do this by going to the settings menu on the top left part of you wallet (or top left on your screen for Mac users) and click options. An option window will appear, where you want to visit wallet and activate the Coin Control features. Make sure that staking is now enabled on your wallet, which can be checked by the colored Bitcorn logo on the bottom right part of your wallet.
If you have already created a password for you're wallet via the "Encrypt Wallet..." option from the "Settings" menu, then you have a couple of more steps to take care of as shown below.
You will see the message near the top of the wallet window: "Info: Minting suspended due to locked wallet." You need to "Decrypt Wallet for Staking Only" from "Settings", then when prompted for your password, enter it, click OK, then after a few minutes the "Info:" message will disappear and you can hover over the BITCORN icon in the bottom right corner of the wallet to confirm the "Staking is active" status.
Now it is just a matter of time to be eligible to receive staking rewards on your unspent Bitcorn. It usually takes around 12 hours to receive a stake, thus 2 stakes a day for every UTXO. When you receive a reward, it will be around 5,500 BITCORN that will add up to your account.
RUNNING A BITCORN MASTERNODE
In order to run a Masternode you need at least 10 Million BITCORN. Then you can follow the official Masternode guide here.
TWITCH CHAT: IDLING REWARDS, TIPS & RAIN
One of the key aspects of BITCORN is the Point of Idling system. This is designed to give back to community member who support their streamer(s) by hanging out in their stream & chat. For example, just being a Twitch subscriber in MTTV (www.twitch.tv/MarketTradersTV) and hanging out in chat, you can earn some BITCORN per minute based on your Twitch Sub tier. You will also need register at BITCORNFarms.com while signed in under your Twitch account so you can sync up and start receiving rewards. Toggle on the BITCORN and Twitch integrations on the BITCORNFarms.com website to enable your Point of Idling rewards.
The accumulation breakdown for Twitch chat idling rewards are as follows:
"Point of Idling" Reward Rates
- Tier 3 Twitch Subscribers earn 1 BITCORN per minute
- Tier 2 Twitch Subscribers earn 0.5 BITCORN per minute
- Tier 1 Twitch Subscribers earn 0.1 BITCORN per minute
Think of this system like STREAMLABS LOYALTY POINTS, but using REAL cryptocurrency.
If you're active and contribute good information, you may also find yourself receiving a $tipcorn from a fellow user in Twitch chat. You might also get $rain'd on if you happen to be one of the last few active chatters in chat. These will result in BITCORN going to your BITCORNFarms.com wallet (TIED to your Twitch UserID).
