BITCORN ($CORN): Getting Started
The New Official Home of Bitcorn: BITCORNPROJECT.COM
The cryptocurrency, Bitcorn, is intended to be used as a fun peer-to-peer tipping system that directly integrates with the Twitch streaming platform. This is the same platform that MarketTradersTV (MTTV), the purveyors of Bitcorn, streams on live 24/7. You can read the official whitepaper for Bitcorn, The Cornpaper, to learn more about the purpose, technical specs, and roadmap for cryptocurrency. To begin using and accumulating Bitcorn please follow this guide.
Bitcorn has a Helpcenter with FAQs, Tutorials and News on Everything Bitcorn. You can get support and lodge a ticket if you need help: https://bitcorn.zendesk.com

MarketTradersTV & BITCORN Official Discord Server
Wallet Types: Desktop & Twitch Dashboard
The Bitcorn Desktop Wallet can be downloaded from the official Bitcorn Project GitHub. There is currently a version for Windows, Mac & Linux, with iOS/Android support in the near future.
The Twitch version of the wallet can be managed via commands executed in Twitch chat for the channels MarketTradersTV and BITCORNhub. You must also be a Twitch Follower for BITCORNhub (the official Bitcorn Twitch Bot) in order to receive whispered responses to commands and receipts for Bitcorn transactions.
New Dashboard Under Development
Now that you have your respective wallets in place, how can you actually fill them up with Bitcorn?
If you have your desktop wallet setup, you can enable Staking by unlocking your wallet and choosing the "For anonymization and staking only" option. You will need to make sure you have already used the "Encrypt Wallet..." option first to get the Lock/Unlock options to appear. After a few minutes you should be able to see the icon in the bottom right indicate that your Staking is indeed active.
In order to run a Masternode you need at least 10 Million Bitcorn. Then you can follow the official Masternode guide here.
The easiest way to get more Bitcorn is just being a Twitch subscriber in CTTV (www.twitch.tv/CryptoTradersTV) and hanging out in chat! The accumulation breakdown for Twitch chat idling rewards are as follows:
- Tier 3 Twitch Subscribers earn 1 BITCORN per minute
- Tier 2 Twitch Subscribers earn 0.5 BITCORN per minute
- Tier 1 Twitch Subscribers earn 0.25 BITCORN per minute
If you're active and contribute good information, you may also find yourself receiving a
$tipcorn from a fellow user in MTTV chat. You might also get
$rain'd on if you happen to be one of the 5 people chatting (limit to cut down spam on bot) before someone executes the command. These will result in Bitcorn going to your Twitch wallet specifically.
There are also some really fun Marbles On Stream games that take place on BITCORNhub's Twitch channel where you can win Bitcorn for earning top spots in the various Grand Prix races. The winnings are distributed live on MTTV's chat after each Grand Prix, as well as the Seasonal Championship prizes that consist of a Masternode for #1 and 1 million Bitcorn each for 2nd-10th place.
Beyond that you can also participate in various Bitcorn Bounties that are announced in the #bitcorn channel on MTTV's Discord. There are currently several open for making graphics (emotes, memes, etc.), sharing information about Bitcorn or CTTV on social media, and assistance with web content or articles for Bitcorn Times.
When will Bitcorn be listed on a proper crypto exchange?
The overall goal is to get listed on Kraken. Our application has been submitted and we have many dedicated community members bugging the folks at Kraken to list Bitcorn.
Who is involved with development?
What about the !fakecorn in Twitch chat?
The "fakeCORN" (StreamLabs Loyalty Points) will continue to be used for stream events and giveaways and will remain separate from $BITCORN. You can however offer to trade !fakecorn for $BITCORN with another user if you'd like to.
Will you be able to donate to the stream and get Bitcorn rewards?
We will soon be developing a direct approach to obtain lumps of $BITCORN through the Bitcorn Hub Dashboard. You can also seek out trades with other users to obtain $BITCORN for either !fakecorn, Bitcoin, or other crypto currencies. The #bitcorn channel on Discord would be the best place to ask.
