Bitcasino unveils TronLink Chrome extension
The future of gaming
Decentralized apps (dApps) are positively made for iGaming platforms and go together like peas and carrots. Free from third party interference, holding/circulating and playing in crypto will prove to be the safest way to enjoy your favourite games. Did anyone order instant, private gameplay at the click of a button? Added to that, you can spin your way through the full spectrum of Bitcasino games and never worry that the system will corrupt, be tampered with or incur losses of any kind.
Faster than a speeding bullet
25,000 transactions processed per second means that you are able to withdraw, wager and top up instantly. Imagine The Flash knocked back 40 energy drinks and went for a dash through instant crypto-cash? You get the picture.
Anonymity at its finest
TRONLink doesn’t (and doesn’t need to) store your information, meaning no one accesses your details or transactional history and you remain protected in your gameplay.
So, just what is the TRONLink Chrome Extension?
In essence, this nifty little addition to the TRON family acts as a go-between for you to access the TRON Blockchain while on the Bitcasino platform.
See it as the seamless connection between Bitcasino and your TRON wallet. Always on-site and easy breezy to use. The best part? You don’t have to share your key with anyone. The plugin stores it (safely) and taps into it anytime you need to deposit or withdraw from your Bitcasino account.
The plugin simply detects your TRON wallet, pulls the key automatically and sends you a request to allow it access to the balance. It’s that straightforward. All you have to do is install it, which brings us to...
How do I download TRONLink?
TRONLink has a wallet function, meaning if you don’t have a place to store TRON already, you can do it from here. However, if you already have an existing wallet with existing balances, TRONLink will import this as its default. All you’ll need to do (in the setup stage) is request to have your existing wallet restored, but we’ll get into that.
Head over to the Chrome extension store and download the application by selecting the blue “add to chrome” icon
Click the symbol at the top right-hand corner of your browser. Choose a password that you’ll remember (keeping in mind that there isn’t a “remember my password function”)
Oh, and cookies are fun, agree to cookies at the bottom of the box. If you don’t, they won’t let you in.
Now, you either make a new TRON wallet (‘CREATE’) or you go with an existing wallet that you have already (‘RESTORE’). Don’t worry about the third option, this is for people with handheld “real-life wallets or ledgers (but for simplicity sake, we're going to pretend they don’t exist and keep it digital)
Time to give your account/wallet a name. This protocol helps you tell the difference from one to the next (if you have multiple wallets, that is). Make sure the name is at least 4 characters long. Be sure to avoid weird characters and hit continue.
So, IF you’re opening a NEW account, (like me), chances are the system will ask you to verify your Mnemonic phrase. Say what? This is literally just a bunch of jumbled words that you need to recount back to the computer in the order they were written in (so that they know it’s you). Once you’ve done this you’re in business.
NB. Read me.
If you forget or misplace your password and you also don't remember the backup phrase, you lose access to your wallet permanently. Your funds float in the eternal crypto-cloud and there's not a lot you can do about it. So, please, please, make sure you always remember your password and tattoo it into memory.
Now you need to unscramble that same phrase on the next screen and parrot the words back in the same order they were given to you.
No more steps! You’re in and now you have a new plugin to make your deposits and withdrawals easier than ever!
Benefits of using TRONLink on Bitcasino?
- You don’t need to ever share/find or remember your wallet key. The extension remembers it and recounts it back to you instantly. You’ll never have to copy/paste a wallet address again, Isn’t that Trontastic!?!? (trying out a new buzzword)
- At 2000 transactions per second, the TRON network is insanely fast. Arguably the fastest so far. So, lagging, pausing and stalling are considered dirty words in the TronLink vocabulary.
Lastly, how exactly does the extension work?
You will need to have an active TRON wallet added to your Bitcasino cashier. Without one, you won't be able to see the TronLink Extension in the top right hand of the screen. This is temporary and, by the time you read this, the entire process may well have been simplified and automated to the fullest. So, stay tuned.
Let me set the picture here.
- You’re spinning up a storm on the interactive Hammer of Fortune (seriously though. Try it out. It’s epic) and the time comes to fill up on some TRON (your playing coin of choice)
- Head to the top right of the screen and hit the TRONLink icon.
- Select either Deposit or Withdraw (depending on what you want to do)
- You’ll be taken to your TRONLink account (after you’ve logged in with your unique details). Choose the amount you want to deposit/add and just like that, you’re topped up on TRON.
Tip: Both the extension and your Bitcasino account need to be logged in at the same time.
So, there you have it. It’s now time to take your brand new extension into the world and transact on Bitcasino at the speed of light.
