Stakes Are High for Star-Backed Bitcoin Gambling Site As Crowdsale Stumbles

Online gambling has long been a driving force behind the bitcoin economy, though one that remains both shrouded in secrecy and hampered by a lack of regulatory clarity.

However, an attempt to launch one of the first major regulated bitcoin-powered gaming platforms is struggling to alter this narrative, despite backing from a slew of international gambling stars.

Breakout Gaming, announced on 16th September, boasts former World Series of Poker champions Johnny Chan and Huck Seed as marketing partners and will be powered by its own decentralized cryptocurrency, breakout coin (BRO). Gaming pros Jennifer Harman, Ted Forrest, Todd Brunson and Vladimir Shchemelev have also signed on to support the platform.

The project completed its first initial coin offering (ICO) period this week, raising just 387 BTC (roughly $136,000 at press time) toward its 1,000 BTC ($350,000) goal. The ICO began on 21st October and formally ended at midnight on 19th November.

Speaking to CoinDesk, Breakout Gaming’s head of marketing Gian Perroni and CEO Billy Chung framed the struggles as being more indicative of poor market timing than a disinterest in the project itself.

Perroni and Chung said:

“When we first launched our crowdsale, bitcoin was in a free fall, which cast a chill with potential purchasers – not only for our project but for the crypto community in general.”

Breakout Gaming said it views its ICO and its gaming platform as complementary services and that, should the ICO fail to reach its goal in another planned fundraising round, private sources could be tapped to bring the project to fruition.

Both Perroni and Chung remain convinced of the project’s ultimate success. Unlike past cryptocurrencies aimed at specific verticals, like potcoin for the marijuana industry or titcoin for adult entertainment, Perroni suggested that the Breakout Gaming ecosystem will add value to its preferred currency by providing a built-in marketplace.

“The difference is that we’re building a gaming property whose sole purpose is to support the value of the coin. What will make the coin successful is if the gaming is successful, and what makes the gaming successful is the fact that we have a blend of excellent products and very, very good experienced personnel.”

The platform will accept breakout coin, bitcoin and fiat currencies for breakout chips – the individual tokens that enable gaming on its platform.

Emphasis on gaming

Breakout Gaming intends to use 7m BRO to incentivize new players to its games, which will include real-money and free poker and casino gaming, fantasy sports leagues for major US sports and fantasy games for electronic sports (eSports) like League of Legends and Defense of the Ancients (DotA).

These games, Perroni argues, would give the platform an edge, even if it wasn’t focused on promoting the platform through an online currency.

“There’s no one who’s running the traditional poker and casino and also blending that in with fantasy e-sports,” he said.

The platform will also feature a unique ‘fantasy crypto’ property that will allow players to pit whole lineups of cryptocurrencies against one another.

The firm’s 7m BRO will be distributed to customers over two years, Perroni explained, through a series of giveaways and guaranteed prize pools that he hopes will entice new players into Breakout Gaming and, by extension, the digital currency space.

“Breakout coin will give a lot of people the opportunity to being able to use a cryptocurrency, people who may not have had the opportunity or the trust to find out what this is all about,” he added.

Messaging issues

Though many forum members have expressed interest in the platform’s planned gaming options, other aspects of the project have been greeted with less fanfare or with skepticism.

Breakout coin uses a unique mining functionality called ‘Proof of Bergstake’, a form of proof-of-stake mining that ensures only individuals who participate in the initial coin offering will be able to mine the currency in the future.

Investors who participate in the ICO earn bergstakes, which allow them to earn more coins, even if they sell the original coins they purchase.

The community has been less enthusiastic about the Breakout Gaming pre-sale, with some criticizing the many changes to its ICO terms and conditions. Breakout Gaming argues it has been transparent about the alterations, and even asked the community for advice on how to make the offer more appealing.

The platform is offering its ICO investors the option to refund breakout coins purchased during the ICO, but said that only one participant has so far elected to take advantage of this offer.

Poker stars back bitcoin

In statements provided to CoinDesk, Breakout Gaming illustrated that the poker stars it has recruited for the project all have a familiarity with bitcoin and digital currency, as well as an interest in their first project in the space.

The gaming pros reported that they all are sponsored gamers for the platform, though a few are considering direct investment.

Some like Huck Seed were more deeply familiar with the technology. Seed cited his background in computer programming as the key to his early interest, but reported that he has become more engaged as the ecosystem has evolved.

He described his ‘a-ha’ moment with the technology, one that speaks to the wide appeal Breakout Gaming is seeking to achieve:

“One day, I was playing an Internet tournament with thousands of people, from all around the world and it was such a great feeling to compete with people from all over the world at the same time!”

Others such as professional poker player Ted Forrest hinted at some of the complications that may have so far prevented the project from reaching its ICO goal.

“Unless people are familiar and comfortable with how to buy cryptocurrency, they are finding the process of first buying bitcoin and then buying BRO coin somewhat cumbersome to the point that too many just give up in frustration,” he said. “As we all know, the attention span of most gamblers is not the longest.”

In defense of altcoins

Forrest hints at yet another complicating factor for the platform, its native currency. When asked why Breakout Gaming elected to introduce its own coin, Perroni said the decision was made in the interest of enabling the platform to best entice new users.

Describing the altcoin as his firm’s “competitive edge”, Perroni said breakout coin and its pre-sale were ways to ensure the gaming platform had a loyal and incentivized user base.

Perroni also indicated that he saw an inherent way to add value to breakout coin: since it is a decentralized currency, Breakout Gaming must purchase the coins it needs from the open market.

“We’re required to make sure that we have enough coins to cover any chips that are in play. If someone buys $100-worth of breakout chips, we then have to buy $100-worth of breakout coin ourselves from the decentralized market in order to cover that,” he explained.

The limit on the number of coins mined per year, along with this built-in market for the altcoin, are supporting factors, Perroni suggested.

Project future uncertain

Issues with the ICO aside, Breakout Gaming’s team is still refining its global market strategy.

Perroni voiced Breakout Gaming’s intent to pursue licensing in Kahnawake, Canada, which he said would allow it to position its gaming properties differently in its target markets, though he said this process hasn’t been completed.

In the US, he said he expects residents will likely be able to play its gambling properties for free, while competing in its fantasy sports offerings. By comparison, Perroni indicated that licensing in Canada would allow the company to offer a full suite of services both there and the UK.

“We’ll be able to provide some form of gaming experience in every country, whether it’s free only or a blend of free and real-money gaming,” Perroni said.

Breakout Gaming reported that it intends to launch a second phase of the ICO, though specific dates have yet to be announced.

Коллизия

Блоки в биткойне создаются каждые десять минут, при этом хеш SHA-256 от блока должен начинаться с D нулей, где D на данный момент — D0

70 и каждый год растет на 4. Оцените, в каком году будет впервые найден блок, хеш которого уже встречался в блокчейне биткойна.

Свойства

Каким из этих свойств не обладает биткойн?

  • Вероятность у разных участников иметь разные префиксы, отбросив последние k блоков, экспоненциально убывает с k
  • Участник, обладающий x% голосующей мощности, создаст не больше ax% блоков
  • Блокчейн растет со временем
  • Только владелец приватного ключа может создать валидную подпись транзакции

Как этого планируют добиться в биткойне?

Задача

Посчитать количество уникальных перестановок фигур на шахматной доске размером 6 на 9 клеток: двух королей, одного ферзя, одного слона, одной ладьи и одного коня — так, чтобы ни один из них не бил другого (цвет фигур не имеет значения). Решение должно работать до трех минут на среднестатистическом ноутбуке.

Binary.com запускает ICO — initial coin offering

I am Gabi, the project lead/CTO of the Moodcoin.org project and I want to help relaunch the Winamp.

I am using Winamp since 1999 and I am a huge fan of it and now that I have found out that radionomy will revive it, I want to be a part of it.

What is Moodcoin you might ask.

If you had a nickel for everytime you put a smile on someone’s face, well, that nickel would be a Mood Coin. Mood Coin is a way of saying thank you. It’s like baking a pie for a friendly neighbor. It is our community currency but we like to think is more than that. The fun part is that you can use these coins however you like, maybe buy one of our awesome to be t-shirts, or outside in the real world, or just keep them in your pocket for rainy days.

Moodcoin’s reputation reward system (MoodRep) is a reputation system that allows reputation to be built by changing people’s mood. The more reputable you are, the more moodcoins you will earn. Each time you will have a positive impact on someone’s mood, you will get a positive vote.

Therefore, on a weekly basis the platform assign 1000 MDC (moodcoins) for the first 10 users with the highest moodrep score
Example: Mike was able to “mood up” 300 users. So at the end of week he has a moodrep rating of 300.
Consequently the platform collects the top 10 scores in descending order (from highest score to lowest) then spread those 1000 MDC between users.

As for collaborating, I am thinking into mixing your experience with the idea of moodcoin and help revive the Winamp.

I am thinking on rewarding the first 5 million users on Winamp.com ( on the relaunch day) with a certain sum of Moodcoin- let’s say 30 Moodcoin. They can use the coins to tip the best skin, or tip their favourite station, etc.

Another idea is implementing a plugin that registers for how long a user listen music with Winamp and simply reward that user with a certain amount of Moodcoins per hour.

If you find that this could help relaunch Winamp, please let me know, I am more than happy to discuss it.

I am currently working on a ICO (Initial Crowd Offering) program for Moodcoin where we can sell some Moodcoins at lower price so we can fund our project.

Thank you for reading this and I can only hope that we work this out
