SatoshiDice launched in April 2012. As of January 2013, it had taken in approximately $15 million in bets. During 2012, SatoshiDice reported profits of over $500,000 in US dollars. However, in May 2013, SatoshiDice moved to block all US-based IP addresses, citing potential legal issues. In 2013 Satoshi Dice's servers were based in Dublin, Ireland.
In August 2012, Erik Voorhees, founder of SatoshiDice, launched a "prospectus" for SatoshiDice, aiming to attract investors.
Satoshi Dice Tribute, Classic, legacy and Session Game
On October 31, 2013 the SatoshiDice Tribute game was launched, only to be shut down a month later after being plagued by slow performance, DDos attacks and other user-related issues. As of 2015, both the classic blockchain based game and a session game where players keep a balance at the site are available. A possibility for players to use their balance as part of the house bankroll was added in 2015.
