Bitcoin lottery is one of the most profound facets of Bitcoin gambling. Zied Hosni, owner of Bitcoin Fortune, shares with a Bitcoingg correspondent an exclusive look on his splendid Bitcoin lottery brand.
How did you first get interested in Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies?
In 2012, I developed a marketplace for freelancers, html5-ninja. I started to look at standard payment processors: PayPal, Skrill, Payooner. However, most of these systems have enhanced identity and solvency verification procedures (requiring confirmation of an international debit card, passport, bank statement, etc.) that I can’t provide due to my location, Tunisia. Hence, I googled “PayPal account Blocked” and found out a forum where users were talking about Bitcoin, and then, what an enlightenment it was! No transaction fees, no outrageous identity verification, no third-party services. In 2013, I rebuilt my website, html5-ninja, entirely to work with Bitcoin. This is was my first experience with Bitcoin as a web developer.
How long did it take you to launch your website?
I developed Bitcoin Fortune from the scratch in one month, the best things with BTC is that it is very easy to integrate in any web platform, specially with blockchain.info API.
What can you say is the best thing about your website? What are the advantages of operating it?

Laws about cryptocurrencies are useless. Bitcoin is the freedom, and no one can control your wallet with the democratization of web industry and Bitcoin technologies. Everything is possible. The only rule is to behave responsibly.
What do you think Bitcoin needs to become a more prominent and reliable form of payment?
As a Bitcoin addict, I think that cryptocurrency needs to be the international way of payment and a standard in e-commerce.
What have been the greatest accomplishments or the best times you have had while operating your website since its inception? What has been the most surprising challenge in your project?
The most suppressing things are that the Bitcoin Fortune system works perfectly, and users are playing, winning, funding, and withdrawing BTC from the first day of launching.
