Crypto Currency Guide


As for now we have 2 options for donations available, both are connected with the crypto currency.
You can use such crypto currencies for donations:
- Bitcoin
- Ethereum

We'd also recommend you to choose Ethereum from these 2 crypto currencies. It's advantage is lower transaction fees (3-3,5%).

Here are the links to the web sites with the lowest fees:
https://www.coinbase.com/signin
https://www.bitpanda.com/trades/buy

You can also use the following websites to purchase crypto currency:
https://coinsbank.com/
https://cex.io/#/
https://www.bitpanda.com
https://www.bitstamp.net/
https://www.coinmama.com/

Using this link you can check our players discussions and good advises regarding their experience of purchasing crypto, so may find the answer to one of your questions as well:

A few more useful links on the crypto purchase:
https://99bitcoins.com/guide-buy-ether-ethereum/
https://coincentral.com/how-to-buy-ethereum/
https://ethereumprice.org/how-to-buy-ethereum/

So, your 1st step is to register on one of the mentioned websites, get verified there and purchase the chosen crypto currency (BTC/ETH/LTC).

Then you’ll need to log in your Shadowcard account following the link https://www.shadowcard.net

You are already there and logged in. Next step is to choose a payment method. Press BUY on the top ---> choose a crypto currency type (BTC/ETH/LTC) and a card you'd like to purchase (5/10/20/30/50/100 points). 1 point = $1. ---> Press on the chosen card.

Press "Yes" if you want to continue and "No" if you want to return to the previous page.

Last step is to complete the payment. It needs to be done within 2 hours or link will expire:

As soon as your payment goes through (can take from a few minutes up to an hour), you’ll receive a Shadowcard number.
Go to the list of ShadowCards in your account and copy the hash printed on the card.

That hash you can use on our ShadowCard widget at https://na.archerage.to/page/profile/#donate

I just wanted to add that you should choose Ethereum because its fees are only a couple dollars to transfer. It cost me $52 and some change to get a $50 credit ingame while Bitcoin can be upwards of $15 per transfer.

Also the time for the transaction to process and the card to actually be delivered was roughly 20-30 mins, so just give yourself sometime and don't try to do it last minute if you are swiping for something that may have a short time limit, such as an auction.

Like I have said before if you do it properly and take a little time to verify there are 0 Fees when using bitcoin, However Ethereum is cheaper if you don't want to bother with getting verified on sites

If you purchase Bitcoin from Coinbase you can then transfer it for no charge to GDAX which is owned by the same people, you can then use the Withdraw option to take it out and send it to your wallet of choice ( in this case shadowcard payment wallet) for absolutely zero fees.

Its just another step when others already think its too complicated. Personally, I'm buying Eth on Coinbase and directly sending it to the payment address and only lose $2 in fees. Its acceptable enough for me that I personally rather pay it than add more steps and transfer processes to save a couple bucks.

If people want to use Bitcoin specifically, I hope they follow your advice but Eth has been an easier process IMO.
