This guide will show you how to get started on Nova88 CryptoSports.
We assume you have the following:
USDT cryptocurrency on an exchange (e.g. Binance) or blockchain (e.g. Ethereum)
A Metamask wallet
If you do not own crypto or have a Metamask wallet, we recommend you check out the following:
Binance - The world's largest crypto exchange
Metamask - The crypto wallet for Defi, Web3 Dapps and NFTs
Step 1. Connect wallet
Navigate to nova88.io (or click on "Play Now" on the top right corner of this page), and connect your wallet to log in/register.
Click "Login with Metamask."
If this is your first time connecting, a prompt will show to add the AminoX network to Metamask.
Confirm the details:
Network URL: https://aminox.node.alphacarbon.network
Chain ID: 13371
Currency symbol: ACT
When confirmed, click "approve"
Also, allow switch network to AminoX
Next, we will prompt you to connect your wallet. Select your desired wallet, and click "Next"
For login purposes, you will need to sign our EIP-712 Signature request. This allows us to verify that you are indeed the owner of your wallet.
Step 2. Deposit (bridge) funds to the AminoX Blockchain
Click "Transfer" on the top left corner
Select "Deposit", "Transfer Network" and "Deposit Amount." Currently, we support BNB (Binance Smart Chain) and TRON. If you deposit greater than or equal to 10 USDT, we will GIVE 1 FREE ACT (used for gas fees on AminoX Chain). Each bet costs around ~0.1 ACT in gas fees, so 1 ACT can be used to place around 10 bets.
If you do not already have USDT in a Metamask wallet, you can alternatively withdraw from Binance directly to the "Destination address". Funds will be transferred to your Metamask wallet address on the AminoX Blockchain.
After clicking submit, confirm the transaction and wait for the bridge process. Funds will take ~5 minutes to process.
If any issues occur, please visit our Discord Server and open a ticket in the # ticket-center channel. We will get to you ASAP.
Step 3. Place Bets
To place a bet, select a market to your liking, input your stake in the bet slip on the right side of the page, then click "Bet."
A Metamask prompt will appear. Click "Confirm" if you want to proceed with the bet.
Once an event has ended, tickets will take around 15 to 30 minutes to settle, depending on the league. For minor leagues, the settlement time might be > 30 minutes. This is to ensure the event results are correct, before being uploaded to the blockchain where they are immutable and cannot be changed.
Settled tickets can be viewed at the "Bet List" -> "Settled" tab. Below is an example:
Step 4. Withdraw funds
So you've won a couple of bets and are ready to withdraw.
Input your desired network, amount, and recipient address.
Remember to double-check your network and address. Funds sent to the wrong destination cannot be recovered.
There is a 0.5 USDT fee per withdrawal. Please ensure your balance has enough funds. For example, if your balance is 1000 USDT, the max withdrawal amount is 999.5
Click "Submit" to proceed
Confirm the transaction in Metamask
Withdrawal complete! Note that transactions might take a few minutes to finalize.
