Frequently Asked Questions
Chopcoin is an interactive Bitcoin faucet, combining crypotocurrency with a competitive multiplayer game. This means you can win some Bitcoin by playing with other players for free. Furthermore Chopcoin is a community of cryptocurrency enthusiast and you are rewarded for participating. We aim to provide beginners with a challenging fun experience to learn about Bitcoin and own their first satoshis (smallest denomination of Bitcoin – 0.00000001 Bitcoin).
We offer three different ways of winning Bitcoin:
1. Play in the playgrounds
Here you compete with other players and might win some Bitcoin based on your skill. Currently we have three different playgrounds all evolving around the same basic game.
In Faucet you compete with other players for a fixed period of time after which the round ends and the top 20 players win Bitcoin according to their rank. Afterwards a new round starts and you can try your luck again.
The playground King of the Hill doesn't have rounds of a specific time. Instead players compete endlessly to become the biggest blob in the game and thus gain the crown. If you can defend your position at the top for at least three minutes you will win Bitcoin. Only the leading player wins but naturally he wins more and does so every three minutes as long as he stays King of the Hill.
You can play in both playgrounds for free. However, the Paid playground requires you to pay some Bitcoin into a pot to participate. This playground works just like the Faucet playground with rounds of a limited duration but since all players pay to play the reward might be higher – after the round ends the pot is split among all remaining players according to their respective score. Before playing make sure to check how much the buy-in fee in the current round is as it differs regularly. Also verify whether or not team mode is enabled – in team mode all players are assigned automatically to one of two teams and the winning team splits the pot among themselves equally.
2. Click the claim button
You can claim a small random amount of Bitcoin (5-15 satoshis) every 30 minutes. To do so just click the claim button on the upper left.
3. Participate in the community
Our rainbot rewards players who engage with the community via chat. Just talk to other players about the game, discuss the newest developments in crypto or help answering questions and the bot will recognize you as active and send some Bitcoin your way. Heck, other players might even tip you if you’re helpful or funny thus increasing your Bitcoin further.
The game is intuitive and more easily understood by playing than by reading. Familiarize yourself with the controls (Mouse to move, W to eject mass, hold Q to flood mass, Space to split) and figure it out yourself. Basically it comes down to growing in size by hovering over the colorful food, eating smaller players than yourself, don’t getting eaten by bigger players than yourself and avoiding the bombs.
Yes, in order to make Chopcoin a fun experience for everybody you are not allowed to team up in the Faucet and Paid playgrounds with other players. Teaming up means the intentional and continuously assistance of each other in order to win the game. This includes but is not limited to feeding another player or purposely dying. Teaming up to take down the King pf the Hill is reasonable and allowed. Furthermore you’re required to talk in English in the public chat and show appropriate mannerism while communicating. Violations of this rules will result in a warning by the moderators.
Yes, we take precautions to prevent theft and take security serious. The majority of funds is stored in cold storage. However; be advised that we are NOT A WALLET SERVICE. Cookie users without any balance will be deleted after not logging in for one month. Registered users as well as unregistered users will be deleted after not logging in for six months regardless of their balance.
No, you can play and win Bitcoin without registration. However, we strongly recommend you to register to increase your account security. Furthermore you can’t chat without registration nor claim Bitcoin. Thus only one of the three possible ways to win Bitcoin at Chopcoin is accessible without registration.
Make sure to check out the options (gear icon to the upper left). Disabling skins, names and mass as well as enabling performance mode or limiting the FPS might help. Additionally you might consider disabling any addons or plugins in your browser or trying out another browser.
You may have a browser plugin or a firewall blocking the connection. Please check and try again.
Yes, you can find the option in your account tab. Share the unique link or banner with your friends, peers and or website visitor and gain 8% of their winnings to your balance.
You can request a withdrawal in your account tab. There is no transaction fee and withdrawals are processed once a week at SAT 12pm UTC.The minimum amount to withdraw is 1000 satoshis (0.00001000 Bitcoin).
Please check your wallet and your accounts transaction history to verify that the deposit or withdrawal did indeed not go through. It may take a short while before a deposit is credited and withdrawals are only processed once a week.
Some nicknames have a skin attached to them. Using one of these nicknames will enable a specific skin. You can find small icons of the currently available skins below the text box for your nickname. You can click those to have your nickname changed to the name associated with that skin. Other players have a skin because they purchased a private skin and thus supported Chopcoin.
Get your own custom skin in Chopcoin for 30$ payable in Bitcoin, pay once and the skin will be in your library forever. Just send an email to our support mail firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us what you would like your skin to look like. We will design one according to your wishes and send you a Bitcoin address. Send the 30$ and we'll upload the image making it accessible to you the same way public skins work.
No. We added a mechanism to the Paid playground to prevent this. If a player joins and nobody else joins, he can abort the game and will get his full buy-in restored. You can find the button to abort in the upper left corner once you joined the Paid playground and are alone in it.
I bought into the the Paid playground and died immediately and lost my coins right away, why is there no spawn protection?
That would be unfair to the people that are already playing. Like playing a game of poker, once you have bought in you never know what hand you will get and how the game will progress. The golden rule is this: never play more than you can afford to lose!
Your warning level represents how many times you have been warned by an administrator or moderator for inappropriate behavior in a given time. Your warning level decreases by one point every week. However, if you are warned again within that period, your warning level is increased and the weekly timer reset. You can always review your warnings on your account page, including reasons for the warnings.
The maximum warning level is three. If you reach this level and you are warned again, your account will be banned automatically. If you have any questions or concerns about one of your warnings, please contact us.

You can access several options by clicking the gear icon in the upper left. Show names, skins and mass do as they say – show mass might be useful do know exactly how much bigger/smaller another player is than yourself. Furthermore you can change the theme to black & white or enable the Performance mode, which might to increase the games performance on low-resources devices. Another option regarding the games performance is limiting the FPS. Enabling mouse controls you can split by left clicking and ejecting mass by right clicking.

We strive to provide a fun, but more importantly, fair playing community. If you are certain that someone is cheating, please contact us right away (and be sure to include some proof). However, please be absolutely certain it is not just a mechanic of the game you do not know about. For example, it is possible for a player to eat a bomb in certain situations. How? That is for you to find out!
We do not encourage players to choose names that might offend other players. However, we can't ban any combination of words in any language that somebody might find offensive. Furthermore we highlight the importance of Freedom of Speech. We kindly invite you to deal with players with offensive names yourself in the playgrounds!
You might get provisional balance due to some campaign or promotion. You can’t use this balance to tip other players nor withdraw it. But you can use it to pay your buy-in fee in the Paid playground. Any winnings in this playground are credited as regular balance even if you bought in using provisional balance.
For increased account security you can define a specific Bitcoin address as the only address that can be withdrawn to. You can do so in the overview of your account tab. Once the address is set it cannot be changed without contacting support and verifying it is indeed you who wants to change it rather than a malicious actor.
Yes, we accept all major Altcoins with ShapeShift. You find an icon to pay with Altcoins in the deposit tab.
We provide a list of the Top 10 players in the last week, Top 10 players of all time as well as personal statistics in the lower half of the dashboard. Moreover you can find similar lists for the claim function and for tips by the rainbot in the chat.
