Why telegram for giveaways?

Featured Comment

Hello my fellow Stakers it's me bmg here &  I really would like to hear your personal opinions on this topic because its one that has bee on my mind for sometime now....

 

So there I am in between betting and hanging out in chat , when all of a sudden everyone starts going crazy because its almost time for the give away details to be posted on telegram....

I myself am not a fan of social media nor do I have a telegram account.  So anyway chats going nutts &  Eddie  the owner of Stake.com comes into chat and I asked him what the giveaway challenge was and get this....

He tells me to go check on telegram!! wtf!?? huh ? am i missing something here??  The site that im gambling at wants me to stop betting and leave the site to go to another site to tell me the details of a giveaway on the site that I'm already at ?   ... huh?   So let me get this straight you want me to stop feeding plinko , keno or mines all my money so I can go to another site so you can tell me about a way that i may wanna play to win here... haha hello!! 

In my opinion I feel that regardless of what other sites that Stake.com chooses to post about giveaways on there should always be a post in the forum for loyal players such as my self to be able to participate in the giveaways without having to leave Stake to do so.....

Can I please get some personal opinions from my fellow Stakers on this

I guess that Eddie wants to create a big comunity on Telegram. In this way he can put announcements on Telegram and everybody will see it instantly. Telegram is used a lot in the crypto comunity. Telegram and twiter.

telegram is just a messaging app like whatsapp. stake has a bussinees model to promote it. it up to us whether we want to use it or not. if u dont want to use something dont use it no one is forcing u. but if u want  to participate in the giveaway u have to be on telegram . at the end its stake that wins

As for me, the telegram is very convenient for this. In addition to the telegram about the giveaway is reported on the forum and also on the forum hangs an advertising banner about it. Yes, and the telegram audience is huge.

Uhm, looking for gw details on forum you're leaving stake anyway, aren't you? :D

And I think it's perfect platform to announce such hot giveaways. Btw, if you aware of your privacy, this tele group organized in a way, that participants only can see the number of ppl joined, not names or any personal info :)

The reason is we're trying to build a Stake community on Telegram like we've done on Discord, Twitter and other places. The head start in the giveaway is just a reward for joining our channel. Anyone in chat can win though because someone always says the rules and it's confirmed after the first payout. I believe you're actually in a position to gain a very small advantage in these giveaways if you were to join our channel. This is not only because you're active, but the only messages you'd be receiving would be from us while others have many people messaging them at the same time. The worst case scenario is removing the app and the best case scenario is free crypto...and then removing the app :D

Well, telegram connects to your phone number so i guess that its easier to get informed about stake's news, that's for me actually. Also while people cant talk in telegrams channel we are avoiding tons of spam and stuff. I would also want to see those new on discord or facebook /twitter but this would need time. Anyways, I suggest you using telegram aswel while its easy to use and you get informed about news or giveaways instantly with these notifications.

I was wondering the same thing, but I guess nobody is complaining because it is a change to win some free crypto! I guess they also want people to join to build up a following on tele so that they can pump out announcements if necessary, but that's just my guess :)

Well maybe because they already have accounts which are well known for eg : They have twitter , Instagram , Medium , Bitcointalk and telegram is like one of a crypto app thing among all others so that's why they want a group that'd be famous in Telegram

i like that its in telegram, i get a notifiaction on each message that they send there, and its just atleast for me easier to just check the phone compared to try to read the stake chat

I think it’s because it reaches out to users just as text message would without having to have people’s personal phone numbers.    I know I have my notifications set so that as soon as Stake sends a message out on telegram, I get it instantly just like I would a text message to my cell phone number.

I don't mind it really,  I for one am also not much of a social media fan but if I want to stay up to date & be included in such events It seems I have no choice but to use it.  I prefer Telegram over snapchat or  instigram any day and it is a way for Stake to promote the site.  The Telegram contests are usually also posted on discord at the same time If I'm not mistaken so you always have that option I suppose.

89% Russians use telegramm, why not.

Since Whatsapp is part of Facebook, Telegram is my first choice. And comparing softwares, Telegram have themes and emojis, and some of the features of whatsapp were copied from Telegram.

But I don't consider it a social network, it is just a messaging app.

The way i see it any media outlet that is out for use old or new great way to advertise..not only that some platforms are not allowed in certain countries.. so connecting to that platform potential new players are available.. Is very smart way to advertise without paying for space.. there are new outlets created everyday..some can be popular overnight.. is great to tryout different ones.. especially some players prefer one platform then the other.. twitter in some countries because of their open use of adult content..telegram is great for peer to peer..and privacy content..using invitation to join that privacy content so knowing your members who enters is a plus...

I agree on the surface it seems very counter intuitive, you are offering a gaming site, and by pulling people away from that gaming site to give them free money you seem to be working against the very cause you should want, them playing on your site.

To me it seems nuts, especially since so many people seem to farm things like the Discord giveaways.  So I agree with you completely @bmg.  I find it annoying that I have to install yet another app and register another username password combination to participate in a Stake giveaway that should be in chat for it's loyal players and users.  Given my zero wins on Twitter, I've mostly stopped even trying to chase these.

HOWEVER, I have to assume that Eddie and/or Stunna and/or whomever is in charge of Stake knows more about running a gambling site than I do.  They seem to think that having a big community of followers on these other sites is very worthwhile and are prepared to invest accordingly.  They seem to have done well financially so far, so I'm forced to admit that maybe they know more about this whole "casino promotion" thing than I do!  I guess we'll see!

Good Luck!
