Dear BTC-e.com Customers!

We introduce a new feature on our Exchange – Bitcoin Betting https://btc-e.com/bets

What is Bitcoin Betting?
It’s a totalizator where Bitcoin exchange rate against USD is used.

Brief description of Bitcoin Betting
Every 5 minutes, the BTC/USD exchange rate is fixed at the last price (base price), and you can bet on the rise or fall of the exchange rate in relation to the base price. After the 5-minute interval, the bets are closed, and a new 5-minute bet acceptance period with a new base price begins.
After the betting period is over, the waiting stage of the drawing begins. It lasts 5 minutes. If there are enough participants, the drawing is made after 15 minutes of waiting. At this stage, the BTC/USD exchange rate is also fixed at the last price, and the drawing is made. If you placed an up bet and the price went up, you will receive a prize as a percentage of your bet to the total amount of up bets. In this case, the prize pool is the sum of all down bets. The same algorithm is applied to down bets, but vice versa.

1.1 Interface
The interface consists of the Current bets section and the Past bets table.

1.1.1 Current bets
  • id (1) – unique drawing number
  • base price (981.101) – this price is fixed at the last price at the beginning of each drawing
  • current price (981.201) – the current price changes according to the last price in real time
  • up bet (0 BTC) – the sum of all up bets
  • down bet (0 BTC) – the sum of all down bets
  • remaining time (5 min) – time until the end of the betting period, when bets are accepted

- Bets are only accepted in the active drawing in the Current bets section.
- The minimum bet amount is 0.001 BTC.
- The maximum betting amount in both directions is 10 BTC.
- You can simultaneously place up and down bets, but in this case you should note that your balance can decrease by 5% (prize fee) and become negative.
- All your bets for the current drawing are displayed in the Your current bets section.
- At the end of the betting period, the current drawing goes into the waiting stage. You can see it in the Past bets table.
- You CAN NOT CANCEL your current bets.

1.1.2 Past bets
  • id – unique drawing number
  • period – drawing start, end of the period when bets are accepted, drawing end
  • base price – this price is fixed at the last price at the beginning of each drawing
  • current price – the current price changes according to the last price
  • bets count – the number of all bets, the number of all up bets, the number of all down bets
  • sum – the sum of all bets, the sum of all up bets, the sum of all down bets

1.1.3 Statuses of past periods
  • active – bets are being accepted
  • waiting – the winner of the drawing is being determined
  • ended – the drawing ended, and the prize pool was distributed
  • canceled – the drawing was canceled due to lack of participants or if the base price was equal to the last price

1.2 Drawing
- Provided that there were no bets in the drawing, the drawing is canceled.
- Provided that the bets were placed only in one direction (only up or only down bets), the drawing is canceled, and all bets are automatically refunded on the user accounts without any commission.
- If the condition of placing at least one bet in both directions by the end of the betting period is fulfilled, the drawing enters the stage of price fixing.
- The determination of winners is done by fixing the last price at the end of the drawing time.
- Prize money is automatically distributed on the winner’s accounts.
- The calculation of the prize pool is done automatically depending on the bet amount in percentage correlation.
- The commission is 5% of the prize amount. It is calculated and automatically deducted from the prize amount.

1.3 Description of transactions in transaction history
- betting (transaction relates to the Bitcoin Betting section), period#1 (unique drawing number), bet#1 (unique bet number in the drawing) up bet (bet direction: up bet (in this case) or down bet), base price 985.998 (base price)
