There are a multitude of ways to buy zynga poker chips when playing the popular online Texas Holdem Game for Facebook. Players can purchase chips in the game using a credit or debit card, preloaded game cards, PayPal, Facebook Credits, or players can choose to buy zynga chips on the aftermarket from trusted websites that offer these chips at steep discounts to in game prices. Until recently, these sites usually processed payments for chips using many of the same traditional methods as an in game purchaser would, ie. credit cards or paypal, but recently many aftermarket chip dealers have begun turning to Bitcoin.
What is Bitcoin? Bitcoin is a digital internet currency (think digital gold coins), that can be bought and sold as needed and used to pay for online transactions. There is no single entity or organization that regulates this digital currency, and so it has become a boon for online merchants who have grown tired of the regulation and red tape that comes along with a traditional credit card processor account. Another advantage of Bitcoin is that it cannot be charged back or reversed, which helps to reduce the incidence of fraud that tends to plague online transactions and especially digital in game item sales such as buying zynga poker chips.
So now that we’ve established what Bitcoin is and that it can be used as a medium for payment for secure online transaction, how does one go about buying or using Bitcoin to buy zynga poker chips? A potential customer would need to first locate a website that offers cheap zynga poker chips for sale online. Once they’re satisfied as to the legitimacy of this website, they can sign up for an account on Circle.com or Coinbase.com which are two of the most popular sites that allow customers to buy Bitcoin and send it to anyone around the world. Customers can then purchase the amount of Bitcoin that corresponds to the package of zynga poker chips that they wish to purchase and send it to the sellers unique address, which resembles a string of random letters and numbers such as “1BvBMSEYstWetqTFn5Au4m4GFg7xJaNVN2”. The seller receives an alert that Bitcoin has been deposited into his account, and proceeds to meet the customer in the game in order to facilitate the transfer of the zynga poker chips they purchased. While all this might sound a tad confusing to those who aren’t tech savvy or never heard about Bitcoin before, the actual transaction and process is actually quite simple, and not much different than sending money with services like PayPal or Venmo.
