    Hey @UltimateJhon (GB1)

    It's only possible to pay with bitcoins using Bitpay unfortunately - as GGS don't accept direct Bitcoin transfers (they get paid in $/£/, etc.) - which is why Bitpay is used - as a facilitator.

    The 15 minute timer is a nightmare, late invoicing is too easy...

    15 mins is silly. Sometimes a block won't even be found in that time, so it would be impossible for the transaction to go through. Not sure how Bitpay handles that, because once you've sent the BTC it's going to eventually go through, even if it takes 2 days, which it might.

    I'm a very experienced Bitcoin user and I've never used Bitpay as far as I know. To be honest, I don't think I've even heard of it. 

    Honestly, I was thinking of buying a few million rubies with Bitcoin a few months ago. Sooooo glad I didn't. lol. The Bitcoin I would have spent has gone up like x3 or x4 since then. 

    No, they don't take Ethereum because they don't use a good payment processor. They should use https://www.coinpayments.net/

    Also, worth noting, due to Cryptokitties, the Ethereum chain is really slow right now.

    @ me or don't expect a response. 

    Chasing the goalpost since 2014. I discovered GGE through a Dogecoin faucet rotator. Don't know what that is? No big deal, those are gone in 2018 2020. A long break was good. Highly recommended. I got too drunk and forgot why I hated GGE and took a break in the first place. So, here I am again. 

    2020 - Not dead yet.
