DAO.Casino - FUTURE OF GAMBLING INDUSTRY



  • DAO.casino is an open ecosystem for gambling games that don’t rely on a trusted third party. It is a decentralised governance system built on Ethereum that rewards all developers, security auditors and community members for their contribution to the platform where players can discover and play scam-free games using familiar and straightforward user interface.



    For The Players:

    FAIR PLAY

    Casinos can cheat

    Section image 2

    Players don’t trust casinos. Platforms are not transparent. The results can’t be verified. It has now become possible to change. That is why we are building a decentralised casino, that can be owned by everyone.

    Dao.Casino will solve this problem by using smart contracts and a blockchain to make players sure of a fair play.

    The existing gaming and gambling infrastructure is rigged, and players have turned out to be the biggest victims of unfair betting outcomes. There is no such thing as a trusted third party, because each gaming service — at some point of time — manipulates the results to suit their business models. And the saddest part is the inability of players to call/prove the bluff, because the betting outcomes are calculated behind the curtains.

    So the first and the foremost thing DAO.Casino focuses on usability. With usability, the platform wants to provide a perfect mixture of straightforward user-experience, provable fairness, and higher payouts. To sum it up, these are some of the benefits users can receive by using DAO.Casino:

    • Slot Machines
    • Dice Machines

    Gambling games have a large and diverse user base. Market size of the global online gambling is approx 45 billion and estimated to grow over 50 billion USD this year. IRL gambling market size estimated over 300 billion. A platform for auditable trustless gambling games can provide a better service for the players, and eliminate fraud. A p2p marketplace with built in security audit incentives will allow game developers to use their creativity while maintaining the highest possible security.

    Smart contracts unite all participants in the gambling market and establish commonly understood, honest, and prescribed rules of the game. That eliminates fraud.

    Business model

    Economics of the platform work as a reward system for contribution of value to the whole socio-technical structure - it distributes rewards to independent game developers, community security audit enthusiasts, and the contributors.

    For The Game Developers:

    For The Game Developers:

    DAO.Casino wants to eliminate a developer’s need to rely on closed-source gaming markets, make it easier to monetise their work, to raise funds for development, or to expect bankrolling without paying heavy commissions.

    With its focus on offering a sustainable model DAO.Casino offers an environment to developers in which they can build games freely & retain their IP, release their game under open source licences, raise funds and bankroll without needing to rely on central authority. In the subsequend releases of the system in 2017 offer integrated serverless hosting for the front end as well. In this project developers get to receive:

    • Scalable P2P marketplace
    • P2P referral system support
    • Possibility to raise funds for the bank roll
    • Build your own Casino (front-end)
    • Verifiably genuine RNG provided by DAO.Casino
    • IP stays with the dev

    Benefits

    • Large audience

    • the most reliable solution to generate random numbers

    • Each player will additionally participate in the draw of the main jackpot

    • Developer offers the opportunity to obtain funding for the project

    • Audit of contracts

  • Game Devs BountyBounty DAO.Casino

    DAO.Casino has announced that it will distribute 3% of all its tokens among the first 30 developement teams that build games on its Ethereum-based decentralised governance system.

    The generous yet well-deserving offer comes in line with the platform’s core aim: to create an open environment where gambling developers get to monetise their work and creativity without giving up their IP. The aforementioned bounty makes developers an active participant in the DAO.Casino system while granting them full control over their content at the same time.

    DAO.Casino offers an autonomous economy, in which no one single party has power to decide whom to pay, and all the resources are distributed automatically, exactly how the protocol governs it and “wants” it to be. That being said, the protocol is designed to reward everyone who contributes value, including the developers. It allows them to:

    fork and create own casino with same smart contracts and jackpots
    raise funds for the bankroll of a game.
    get help with promoting the game (through a referrer system* which runs on tokens)
    use existing solidity contracts from auditedDAO.Casino libraries (and replicate them securely using DAO.Factory)
    get a bunch of tokens that will power theDAO.Casino system after the launch.
    allow token holders to become lenders, random number providers, or even players.
    sell tokens to strangers or give them to friends.

    Our proposal caters for both kind of developers: those who are familiar with Ethereum, and those who are not familiar with it at all. Our team can help the latter with all the decentralised stuff — choose a smart contract template or write one that suits their game logic, or help them to write their own. We can also help to connect their game to the contract using web3.js and to the RNG using Oraclize and other services.

    Why building games on Ethereum makes sense?

    Because it’s introduction as a decentralised system to facilitate, verify, or enforce the negotiation or performance of a contract (known as smart contract), is a relief. Because it enables developers to create applications without relying on somebody else’s backend. It is, to say the least, independent from the control of centralised authorities, thereby making the whole system more sustainable..

    Deploying games to an Ethereum-based platform like DAO.Casino is about two things: 1) opening up decentralised technology for everyone in the indie game world, and 2) distributing tokens to the teams (as we have already discussed above)

    Speaking in terms of decentralisation, game developers get the following benefits while using DAO.Casino:

    You can implement a backend*, i.e. an ingame economy that runs on it’s own (you don’t have to maintain the server) and can potentially run forever
    Games can pay for their own hosting (Check out Swarm developed by the guys at Ethereum Foundation)
    Imagine a game which can hire its own developers, graphic designers, and soundscape designers to work on the next levels and to improve itself? That’s an indie game on steroids. Just make sure your game is not going to fire you.
    The economy of the game, whether it is a gambling game or a game using ingame currency is provably honest, because smart contracts are code which is cryptographically verifiable.

    DAO.Casino — our project — utilises the power of Ethereum in bringing about sustainable improvements in gambling sector; it opens up an open-source environment where game developers can monetise their work, raise funds for development, and bankroll — all without giving away their IP.

    Making indie games more indie

    What an Ethereum-based platform likeDAO.Casino brings to the table is, transparency and security, two of the most important factors that traditional gambling businesses tend to ignore. The subtraction of middlemen from the entire gambling protocol — and the addition of decentralised technologies — ensure that no particular individual or group gets a centralised benefit at any stage of the gambling process.DAO.Casino makes sure to sustain the financial transparency, in times of bounty rewards, funding etc., as it lets mathematics take control of the core model, instead of humans.

    The same transparency also help attractive players to the platform and access your games. Because even they can be ensured that they will receive unmanipulated and fair outcomes on all their bets. It is a productive cycle, overall.

    Not Just Casino, You can Build any Game on DAO.Casino System

    Don’t let our name trick you. AtDAO.Casino, the games don’t have to be classic casino games, it can be anything — a puzzle, a platform, tower defence. It’s just that some of its logic should be expressed in solidity contract, and use random number generation. The example game — HackDAO that we developped for EDCON is both: skill based and luck based (uses random number generator).

    Another thing to remember: what we’re building here is not “our” casino. It’s an autonomous casino. Placing games on DAO.Casino doesn’t mean just placing it here to the alpha UI that we released. We released this UI just because the underlying infrastructure needs at least one human interface where the players can go and discover the games. It means connecting them to the autonomous — and open — decentralised economy which runs on Ethereum network; and is not controlled by any central authority. Business logic is expressed in solidity contracts.

    * Note: Right now you will need to host frontend somewhere. It will be possible to host frontend in a decentralised manner, on the network soon, after we tested and documented decentralised hosting options.

    *Referrer System: In the first implementation of DAO.casino system — all the games will be able to hire their own marketing people. That’s how referrer program will work.



  • The Difference Between DAO and The DAO.DAO.Casino Example

    What does Jack Torrence and Jack Dawson have in common? Truly, both are the famous movie characters; both are played by great actors; and they are well remembered for their portrayal in The Shining and Titanic, respectively. But yes, they do share a common first name, that is Jack. So what if the first Jack tried to kill his family under the influence (of a spirit?), and the other one heroically died protecting his muse’s life during a ship-sinking tragedy, they both are still the same, right?

    DAO.Casino has lately been treated like Jack Torrence, when it is actually the Dawson, Jack Dawson.

    Many people wonder why do we have DAO in our name, when the term has previously been associated with a “hacked” investor-directed venture capital fund. They think — and we don’t blame them for it — that DAO.Casino is somewhat an extension of an organization whose security loop could’d cost them millions worth of Ether.

    Only a couple of days back from the time of this writing, a journalist reached out to us with a very concerned question. He asked:

    How did the Ethereum DAO catastrophe influence your business model? Did you create this before or after Ethereum’s?”

    And this article responds to him, and similarly many others, including individuals from decentralised enthusiasts communities and media houses who want to know the kind of relationship we share with the infamous ‘The DAO’ catastrophe.

    To them we reply: None. And we have a few points to make our case. But before that, let us understand what DAO exactly stands for.

    DAO stands for Decentralised Autonomous Organization, which includes any organization, group, company that is run through rules encoded as computer programs called smart contracts (Source: Wiki). Ethereum, and even Bitcoin, are among many examples of the DAO. Their financial record and program rules are maintained on a public ledger, aka blockchain. That being said, DAO only represents a specific type of organization. While the business models that are based on DAO may vary.

    So, with this said, please observe the following points that clearly explain how The DAO and DAO.Casino differs from one another:

    1. DAO.Casino and The DAO business models are entirely different; they serve different purposes. There is a word DAO in the name
    2. The DAO was the part of one Slockit Project. DAO.Casino has no relation/association with them.
    3. The DAO was a software designed in a form of investor-directed venture capital fund (thanks Wiki for this).DAO.Casino, on the other hand, is a socio-technical system for gaming and gambling industry, and is not an investment fund.
    4. Everything of DAO.Casino — design, architecture, purpose and goal of the software that we are working on — is just radically different from The DAO.

    Keep Calm and Love DAOs

    How far can we let a terminology typecast things that are actually meant for greater good. Why is there even a question that using DAO is somewhat giving us bad publicity? We will try to explain by using this homebrewed example:

    Think of Decentralised Organisation (DOs) and Decentralised Autonomous Organisation (DAOs) as a category of software which can express a business logic. DOs and DAOs can represent any governance model and any business logic, with the only difference from a “normal organisation” that execution of this business logic is not done by a “trusted” third party. Instead it is hardcoded — done by the protocol which executes automatically. Participants can decide whether they want to be a part of the system or not, but once they are, no single party can change the rules.

    In a simplified, non technical way, one might think of it as a constitution, codified in Solidity. Traditional constitutions use separation of powers, so that tasks are assigned to different institutions in such a way that each of them can check the others. As a result, no one institution can become so powerful in a democracy as to destroy this system.

    It is sensible to apply the similar principles to organisations. In DOs and DAOs on Ethereum separation of powers is greater, if by the logic expressed as such in Solidity code and is enabled and partly by cryptography partly by incentive mechanisms for the participants in the system.

    Ethereum is a place where such software can run — because instead of a server that someone can have a control over, Ethereum is a giant decentralised multi-user computer and no single party will be able to change this protocol.

    So we can say that there can be million of projects that can be implemented in both DO and DAO form — investment funds, consumer’s associations, it can be a steering fleet of sailing hackerspaces, or a republic. Just two years back, an artist David Bovill came up with a DAO art project inspired by Plantoid — a bionic sculpture that raises money, in cryptocurrency, to build itself. This idea has been taken forward and developed further by Primavera de Filippi.

    Would it make any sense to compare Plantoid with The DAO project?

    We can never run short on examples. Here’s this one: If you develop an application which is, lets say, an egg timer. And someone else developed an application which is, lets say, a shopping list. And that someone messed something up and the app got exploited and all the private shopping lists were stolen. Would you stop calling your egg timer app an app? Just because of of the gazillion of possible apps got hacked?

    We do understand the prevailing concerns with our project. Right now not even Wikipedia knows that DAOs can come in an infinite shapes, forms and architectures, and states ‘The DAO’ as the only example. We hope that will change soon. But that doesn’t change the fact that DAOs can represent anything from a hedge fund to a workers union, to a fleet of transatlantic catamarans.

    The DAO Failure was Sad

    One of our team members had penned acritical piece on The DAO fiasco. Even then, our take on the entire matter was the same: that The DAO issue had nothing to do with its operating system, i.e. Ethereum. That project’s architecture just centralised a lot of ether, the vulnerability of which became unavoidably tangible. It is likely that no one would have exploited this contract, even in the presence of an exploit, unless the contract held so much Ethers.

    But once again, The DAO was an experiment, not a service. It could very well have been a service that hadn’t raised enormous sums, but still would have got exploited without making a fuss. The problem was in the architecture and implementation.

    We have a lot of respect towards experiments such as The DAO, because any kind of drawback is an opportunity to learn. The monetary loss will always be a sad thing, but let us not brand the term DAO as an intrinsically flawed concept; it has relevance.

    What our team are working on now is, to enable a high degree of autonomy in our software, and its ability to cater for a social & economic system in a particular context. So the concept of DAOs is kind of dear to us. It just doesn’t feel right to start inventing new terms for something that has been already described. Specially if you were following the theoretical developments in this field since a while back, and finally designing and building one.

    Long story short, we just decided to keep the name that we like. And it will probably be slammed in the mainstream media by some. For more details you will be able to check the the architecture that we will publish on this blog this month and see for yourself. We are sure you will be able to differ one Jack from another.

    Though, The DAO didn’t murder anybody. Just saying!

  • DAO.Casino Announces Release of Alpha Decentralized Casino Platform and Dice Game on Smart contracts





    Ethereum-based blockchain platform DAO.Casino announces the release of its new front-end platform and a provably fair dice game.

    The decentralised project, which expresses a business logic to support the growth of a fair and sustainable gaming industry, has till date focused on developing and testing applications in backend. It is now for the first time that DAO.Casino is introducing an alpha-platform that would enable players to discover games, and developers to find players.

    The alpha platform opens in a browser — a simple web-based interface — and it especially caters for users from non-technical backgrounds. Players, therefore, don’t need to know why this particular platform is cheat-proof; they only need to know that it is capable of offering better services, higher payouts and a variety of games from different indie developers.

    “That’s why the DAO.Casino core team, apart from working on the smart contracts / incentive mechanism layer, is releasing a front end platform. To keep the ball rolling, we are also working on games: both in-house and developed by partner teams,” — states Sasha Noxon, the CTO of DAO.Casino.

    This platform is integrated with Ethereum’s testnet, and comes with a small amount of test ether.

    For playing on mainnet players are advised to wait till a fully functioning vault is implemented which is now in progress.

    To deliver an alpha version with the least dependencies on the user side, it is using Infura for the Ethereum node and centrally hosted front end. Consequent releases will use decentralised front end hosting and stand alone applications to interact with the system.

    Platforms need games. DAO.Casino has coupled the release of its alpha platform with the release of its new game, Dice. This makes Dice the third addition to DAO.Casino’s decentralised gaming and gambling ecosystem.

    While the game is still in its test phase, DAO.Casino is already ensuring that its outcomes remains provably fair. It has further released the programming code which underlies the random number generation technique. DAO.Casino, in fact, wants to be better and, as it quotes, “need a more advanced “magical spell” for providing unpredictable results in the Dice game.

    “To take things to the next level, we are working both in-house and with Ethereum developer communities to create an RNG solution which would be scalable and suitable for a new kind of gambling industry,” — states Ilya Tarutov, the CEO of DAO.Casino.

  • Dao.Casino Brings Transparency to Online Gambling with Ethereum Protocol

    Dao.Casino is bringing transparency and fairness to online gambling with their Ethereum-powered system of smart contracts. There are many online gambling sites that deal in cryptocurrencies, but Dao.Casino is the first to develop a decentralized, public protocol that supports provably fair gambling as well as game development for all participants of the gambling industry. Most online gambling casino operators want to prove their honesty, and Dao.Casino’s protocol allows them to do so. By developing the protocol on Ethereum, Dao.Casino removes the need for a trusted third party to arbitrate value transfers.

    Dao.Casino Founder and CEO, Ilya Tarutov, said, “the gambling industry needs an ecosystem that incentivizes contributions from all industry parties, from game developers to players and investors to random number providers and casino operators. Our goal is to change the conversation around online gambling to be centered on fairness and transparency.”

    Ilya Tarutov, Dao.Casino Founder and CEO

    The issue with centralized systems is that they rely on third party intermediaries to arbitrate the process of value transfer, and these human administrators can be corrupted. By developing an ethereum-powered protocol for gambling, Dao.Casino eliminates the corruptible threat posed by single points of failure and replaces third party intermediaries with code executed by the Ethereum network system of smart contracts.

    To incentivize participation by the various parties involved in the gambling industry, Dao.Casino rewards users who create new games, operate casinos, bankroll game development, and contribute random number algorithms with BET-protocol token, Dao.Casino’s in-game token currency. Dao.Casino’s smart contract system ensures that cheating is not economically rational, and if users act maliciously, they lose their tokens.

    Another way to participate in Dao.Casino’s gambling protocol is by becoming a bankroll backer or referrer. Any token holder can become a bankroll backer by supporting a particular game; bankroll backers simply lock their tokens in a game contract of their choice and automatically receive reward. By promoting a game to other players, referrers receive a percentage of tokens generated by the game. The reward received by a referrer depends on whether the new player is an active participant, which ensures that game creators do not share funds with referrers without receiving some benefit in return. When players discover the game without the help of a referrer, the system itself receives the reward.

    Building on Ethereum is still relatively new to many developers and gambling industry participants, and it’s Dao.Casino’s belief that their built-in incentives will attract developer talent who can hone their skills by creating games on the Dao.Casino protocol. The more games are introduced, the more players will be attracted to participate. Dao.Casino’s prototype is already up and running and players can try their hand at Dice and discover new games as they are created. Users can obtain tokens by becoming a random number provider or referrer, or by supporting a crowdfunding campaign.

    Dao.Casino expects early adopters of their protocol to be comprised primarily of Ethereum enthusiasts and those already familiar with decentralized systems, but their system has much wider implications. By automating out the need for trust, the gambling industry can widen its appeal and expand to new markets.

  • DAO.Casino MVP protocol is delivered! Ethereum protocol for gambling is out!

    DAO.Casino is proud to announce the release of an Minimum Valuable Product (MVP) for its blockchain-based gambling protocol, which features several games. The protocol enables cooperation between trustless parties at the gambling market like game developers, casino operators, players, and referrals.

    By building their protocol on the Ethereum blockchain, DAO.Casino is able to eliminate the need for trust between industry participants and bring increased transparency to the gambling ecosystem as a consequence of blockchain technology.

    The Ethereum blockchain is a near-tamper proof platform that enables decentralized applications to run on top of it. The decentralized nature of the platform eliminates the need for third party verification and empowers industry participants to interact and exchange value peer-to-peer.

    “Ethereum is the best network to use for increasing transparency and efficiency in any system. We are using the Ethereum blockchain to transform the gambling industry and support provably fair gambling”
    Ilya Tarutov, DAO.Casino Founder and CEO

    Key Features

    All the transactions between stakeholders are happening in token “BET”. It’s a standard ERC20 token and it will be distributed through a public crowdfunding campaign on the 29th of June shortly after the MVP is released.

    The wallet allows to use a bankroll backing feature. Bankroll backer account is rewarded with BET for taking part in PRNG using the signidice algorithm.

    Signidice algorithm allows the player to receive game results much faster before the new block will be mined (1–3 seconds).

    Our application is available on all platforms — thanks to the framework Electron.js.

    “Electron.js used in Ethereum wallet, and is available throughout all platforms, including Windows, MAC OS, and Linux”.
    Kellas, DAO.Casino desktop App coder

    Referral system keeps track of the registered users. Game revenue is distributed according to how active the players brought by the referrals are.

    Referral system is integrated with Google Analytics, so the referrer can establish where the traffic comes from. Optionally the referrer can connect his wallet with his Google account.

    As an engine for authorization and transactions we use lighwallet.js combined with infura.io as a backend. This allows users to play without installing any specialized dependencies (such as metamask) and not to download the entire Ethereum blockchain to the player’s machine. However it is still possible to access the system from full Ethereum clients.

    Dice is a game developed by DAO.Casino team that supports all roles and functionalities of the system. After registration, a wallet is created, which can be restored by using a mnemonic phrase (see Fig. 3). After that player can access a classic Dice game, and if at least one bankroll backer is connected to the network, than player can start a game. Signidice algorithm allows the player to receive game results much faster, before the new block would be mined (1–3 seconds).

    For Game developers

    Full documentation for developers will be published on the 26th of June. Meanwhile, please, have a look at the bounty program here and subscribe to game developers list.

    For Casino Operators (White Label)

    Casino operators can customize their frontend platform according to their needs. It is possible to integrate Shapeshift if required. You can find all necessary information by this link on our Github.

    Future Plans

    Signidice based on Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm with custom initial point. This Algorithm supported in Ethereum by default, but bankroller can cheat. We must check initial point on elliptic curve in smart contract or use RSA (EIP-74) or another deterministic algorithm.

    Another problem all transactions burn ~5$ tx fee everytime (for every “hit” in blackjack or “roll” in dice). So we must implement technology like Lightning in our system. Stay tuned for further updates.

    About the Token Sale

    While preparing for the extended token sale, we have suddenly faced a somewhat pleasant, but still challenging issue.

    The thing is that the demand for our tokens has dramatically exceeded the initially intended supply. In just a few days after announcing the pre-sale we’ve received orders for nearly maximum that we planned as acceptable to distribute on this stage.

    This makes us confident about our project’s future, and we would like to express our deep gratitude to everyone who wants to become a part of it. We value the entire community of our supporters, and it is crucial for us to make the token available to everyone who wishes to take part.

    Thus, we decided to set the token sale’s maximum cap at $25 million worth of Ether. We consider this amount sufficient to meet the demand we’re currently dealing with and to present a chance for everyone to become a part of our project.

    Hopefully, the revised token sale format won’t make much of a trade-off, and will fit the desires and expectations of everyone in the DAO.Casino community.

    Terms of the Token Sale

    Other terms of the crowdsale campaign will remain unchanged. The protocol’s internal tokens are known as BETs, and are ERC20 tokens acting as in-game currency for all contracts integrated with the protocol.

    You will be able to buy 2,000 BET tokens with 1 ETH on the first day of the campaign, and 1,800 BET tokens for the next two weeks. Then the amount of BETs available for 1 ETH will be decreasing by 100 every three days.

    The campaign will start as planned, at 1:00 pm GMT on June 29th, 2017. It will completely end in 28 days or when the Maximum cap is reached.

    We would like to note that founders and early adopters will have vesting. We deem this measure necessary to ensure the work on the project progresses after the token sale. The parties mentioned above will have 2 years of vesting with 6 months cliff, therefore, the BET tokens will mature by 25% every six months.

    As a preparation for the token sale, the contract is currently being audited to guarantee complete security and safety.

    How to Participate

    Please note that contributions will be accepted only in Ether. No other cryptocurrency or fiat contributions are available. Those willing to contribute to the development of our protocol may use any Ethereum client they like (we recommend Metamask, Parity, Mist, or MyEtherWallet).

    The destination address will become public on the day of the token sale’s start only on the official website. From that address smart contract will transfer your BET tokens to your wallet. For that reason, of course, you should keep your private keys safe and sound.

    You are also encouraged to check if the address is correct by checking it on Ethereum block explorers such as Etherscan during the campaign.

    Prohibited Actions

    DO NOT send ETH from any online exchange services (Kraken, Coinbase, Poloniex, etc)

    We also recommend that you have your ETH private keys encrypted. This, however, will require you to have your password when you need to decrypt them, so keep that password in a safe place.

    NO THIRD PARTY would be distributing BET tokens on behalf of DAO.Casino

    So if you received an email from a third party or offered BET tokens otherwise, please, beware of phishing.

    DO NOT send Ether to any third party addresses

    To receive BET tokens do not send any Ether to addresses other than DAO.Casino crowdfunding contract address that will be provided on the official website.

    Briefly about the Protocol

    DAO.Casino protocol automates value chain of the gambling industry. It will enable independent game developers to get automatically rewarded for their job when casinos take their games onboard. Unlike the current situation, the developer will retain copyright for their game.

    The protocol of DAO.Casino also introduces the roles of a bankroll backer and randomness provider. Therefore, game developers won’t have to depend on casino operators, and finding a bankroll backer would be enough for them to roll out a successful product.

    Casino operators, on their part, will be able to guarantee that all games held at their virtual premises are provably fair.

    will
    benefit all parties involved in online gambling business processes. All
    the contributors — developers, bankroll backers, referrers, and casino
    operators acting as referrers will be automatically rewarded for their
    contributions without a need to trust each other, i.e. bankroll backers
    and referrals won’t have to trust game providers in order to cooperate.

    Further details as to the protocol’s capabilities are described in our whitepaper.

    As we’ve already released the MVP for the protocol, which features minimal functionality and several demo games like beta blackjack, dice, and an indie game we called “Hack a DAO”, the product will be available in case of any outcome of the token sale.

  • DAO.Casino Why You Need To Be Gaming On Blockchain

    You may know that blockchain is a buzzword, with many experts recommending this technology for a variety of industries. The gaming industry is one of the most recent to be innovated by this modern technology… startup DAO.Casino is showing online gamers and gamblers a better way to game.

    First, what is blockchain?

    In short, blockchain is a digital ledger in which transactions are recorded chronologically and publicly. It is constantly growing as ‘finished’ blocks are added to it with a new set of recordings. Blockchain brings security and fairness to many industries, online gaming included.

    How is DAO.Casino using blockchain?

    DAO.Casino uses smart contracts, which are self-verifying rules that verify and enforce contracts. Additionally, DAO.Casino has developed a randomizer tool that ensures the game outcomes are equally unpredictable for all parties. There have been issues in the past with fraud and casinos rigging numbers, but these tools ensure none of the sort is happening.

    Why Use DAO.Casino Over Other Gaming/Gambling Platforms?

    Have you ever wondered if gambling sites are actually being honest? If you’re playing games developed on the blockchain, you can rest assured there’s nothing shady going on behind the scenes. Fairness is built into Dao.Casino’s protocol with their use of smart contracts.

    What Applications & Games Can I Build Using the Protocol?

    Whatever you want! HERE is an example of DICE, a fun game built by DAO.Casino.

    Not a Gambler?

    No problem! If you’re not a gambler, but like developing new games, there’s opportunities for you too. DAO.Casino’s platform is open-sourced, so anyone can get involved and gain rewards in the form of BET tokens — DAO.Casino’s in-game currency akin to bitcoin. Indie game developers can create new games and get rewarded every time they are played.



  • DAO.Casino Token Sale Advanced FAQ





    Here some questions that we have received frequently yesterday and today. Most are related to BET and the token sale.

    1. Why I can’t see my BET tokens in my wallet?

    To see your BET balance in MEW (MyEtherWallet) and Mist you should manually add it to your wallet. Have a look at the explainer.

    2. I sent ether to BET token sale contract from the exchange!

    Try to contact the exchange and ask them to transfer your tokens back, because they have them. Even though we tried to warn everyone in all our channels to send ether from the wallets that we recommend: MEW (My EtherWallet, MetaMask, Mist, Parity) some people still send ether from the exchange. Many people keep making this mistake and that means that many of them can lose their funds as the exchange make the transfers from another address than the user requested (not their ETH deposit address within the exchange). Though some people get help from the exchange, many times they won’t help and you lose your funds.

    Unfortunately, we can’t issue tokens to people who made this mistake, since tokens are issued automatically by the crowdfunding contract, and we have no control over this process once the contract is deployed. Total amount of tokens are proportionate to the amount of ether that the contract has received.

    3. I set my gas limit to 200,000 and transaction doesn’t send!

    If the recommended gas limit 200,000 gas didn’t work just leave whatever gas limit is set automatically by MEW and it should work.

    4. I participated in a public token sale, when will I see BET tokens in my wallet?

    Add the tokens manually as described in the tutorial in the question 1 and it should work. Any case, after the campaign ends everyone will get their BET balances.

    5. I participated to the tokens sale during pre-sale and tried to add tokens manually to the wallet, yet my balance is not showing!

    All the participants will get their BET after the token sale has ended. Some people already can see their BET balances, but for all participants BET is not yet transferrable.

    6. When BET will be listed on exchanges and which ones?

    BET will be available on secondary market after campaign ends. We can’t yet announce which ones. While the token sale is still open it wouldn’t make sense to trade tokens anyway, since BET is available to everyone from the crowdfunding contract directly and exchange rate to eth is the same for everyone.

    7. I’m a US resident, can I participate?

    The sale is not open to US citizens. Crowdsale participants must digitally sign a statement that they are not a US citizen. Our token BET will be tradeable after the sale. Interested US participants could buy it on the secondary market.

    8. How many tokens will be created in total and will any be burned?

    The amount of tokens created depends on ether that is sent to the BET token sale contract, since it is the contract that issues tokens, automatically. No tokens will be burned.

    9. Are the tokens instantly transferable or is there some kind of lockup period to them?

    No. Tokens become transferrable after the token sale has ended, which is either the 28 days after the start or when the max cap is reached.

    10. What is BET, what can I do with it?

    BET is a functional token of DAO.Casino protocol. It is an ingame currency and it powers a reward system for active participants. For example, you can use it to become a Bankroll Backer and support any game of your choice and earn BET %. For more details read section 2 of a White Paper that describes active participant’s roles.

    11. What happens if the max cap is not reached?

    Max cap is just a security measure and not a goal. The project already raised an amount of funds that will allow further development of the protocol long term. This is also mentioned in the token distribution document.

    PS. This FAQ is in progress, we will be adding new questions and answers as we collect them. Meanwhile post your questions to AMA on reddit, ping us in Telegram and Slack.



  • DAO.Casino announces partnership with Starbase to conquer Japanese Market







    Japan is an innovation powerhouse, but it’s not trivial to kickstart your project there unless you’re a local. That’s why we’re partnering with Starbase. Why we want to be represented in Japan? Well, for example Japan’s mobile gaming market is huge, despite of the fact that Japan shuns gambling, this means a lot of cool game devs.

    Secondly, blockchain tech is very hot in Japan yes, it’s hot in many places, but Japan is one of the places in the world that is about to go nuts. Japanese govt is currently piloting a government contract system on blockchains. That means a lot of developers would be incentivised to learn skills needed to work with decentralised tech, blockchains in particular.

    Last but not the least reasons is a personality of Starbase founder himself. When it comes down to building communities from scratch — he’s a machine.

    First time we met Tomoaki Sato, at Ethereum DEVCON1 in London. It’s a longtime in blockchain years. Back then he was already very active in promoting decentralised tech, and building Ethereum community in Japan, connecting developers and enterprise, running meetups and workshops — so to say he was already hooked on Ethereum.

    This is quite important, because back then Ethereum wasn’t such a big thing and a buzzword as it is now, neither was decentralised tech, and most people and large corporates looked at this technology as some weird sci-fi (apart from IBM and Microsoft who probably didn’t mind sci-fi at that time).

    Vitalik Buterin, founder of Ethereum (to the left) and Tomoaki Sato

    For the past few years Tomoaki met with decentralised tech mad scientists and entrepreneurs around the world, followed crowdsales, and protocol level developments. Starbase grew out of his community efforts in Japan, hanging out with developers and learning solidity by himself. Decentralised tech goes hand in hand with new forms of raising capital. Right now interest in blockchain technology in Asia is quite high, but when Tomoaki started there were hardly any meetups covering anything but payments.

    Starbase is a hybrid of a crowdfunding platform and an accelerator, but perhaps, it makes little sense to compare this project to something that existed before. Their goal is to make it easier for everyone to benefit from blockchain based crowdfunding, and apart from raising funds also connect teams, new team members, create communities and offer training.

    We have been following development of each other’s ideas and projects for a while, and decided to partner up. Starbase will reach out to game dev teams and solidity devs based in Japan and elsewhere, DAO.Casino will provide a PRNG methods for the games, bankroll backing system and a use case. Another thing is PRNG methods are useful not only for gambling games. For example in the design of staking pools.




  • DAO.Casino took part at CryptoFinancing 2017

    DAO.Casino brings to your attention a blog post by our business developement specialist Ksenya Bellman about participating in the CryptoFinancing conference on July 7 in London.

    We would like to thank the orga team of Cryptofinancing event that took place in London. There are many blockchain related events that took place this year, but this one was really a highlight for us. For a few reasons.

    Atmosphere, content, audience and organisation was top. Plus we met a lot of our token holders in person and that was amazing.

    Somehow orga team — Richard Kastelein from Cryptoassets Group together with the guys from Beacon (Alex, Roelof and others) managed to get the right balance between veterans of decentralised tech and curious newcomers, techies, investors, execs and media. I have no idea how they did it, crypto-land is a complete chaos.

    Ksenya Bellman, DAO.Casino business development (to the left) and Kelley Weaver, CEO of Melrose PR

    Amongst our highlights were: Jane Hong Zhang from Skycoin, who spoke not so much about her project but shared insights about China. Which was useful and she also made it plain hilarious.

    Rob Knight and Vinay Gupta brought their new project out of stealth — Mattereum. Most of old school decentralised tech enthusiasts understand why Internet of Agreements is a thing (not a blockchain herself) and that’s what Rob’s and Vinay’s work is about. Ryan Zurrer gave a crystal clear and content rich talk on token design, and his talk felt more like a workshop. We met Ryan back in February and he then asked us hard and useful questions on token design back then.

    Only a very observant person could spot a true star of crypto — Ian Grigg, a financial cryptographer since the 90s, who came up with Ricardian contracts in the early 2000nds, researcher, thinker, and despite of insane admiration from crypto crowd, a very discreet and and humble person. Ian is currently working on EOS, and even though our team are pretty much Ethereum purists, we’re closely following the project.


    Ian Grigg (to the left) and Ksenya Bellman, DAO.Casino business development

    For us this conference was quite different from the previous ones we visited this year also because most of the people who came to our stand were our token holders.

    And not just any token holders, but people who followed our project since the beginning of the year, when we came out of stealth, and backed it now when we launched a token sale.

    Usually, when you come to an exhibition, you are ready to repeat what your project is about over and over again. Here people just came over to meet the team. Even folk from conference orga team hold our project’s tokens. Wow.

    Ksenya Bellman, DAO.Casino business development (to the left) and Boaz (reInventinggames)

    Apart from meeting a surprising amount of project backers. We always say, okay, our work is about new generation internet, but if you want to build long term partnerships and start truly deep conversations, connect future and existing project backers, you gotta hang out with people in “meatspace”.

    It was an usual and great feeling to experience this new category of project supporters — they can’t even be called “users”. It feels more like you have a ton of co-founders.

    That’s why token sale model is powerful, not just because it helps projects to raise funds. Because this model creates a whole new category of community around your project. Ok, we have over a 6000 backers, and we didn’t meet each and every of them one on one. Perhaps some of them hold tokens in all the decentralised tech projects. But those you meet in person are special.

    Ksenya Bellman, DAO.Casino business development (to the left) and Malcolm Palle, Non-Executive Director Coinsilium

    Check out other events that both Richard from Cryptoassets.io and editor at Blockchain News and Beacon folk are is organising. You likely to meet us at Blockchain Solutions Forum on the 3–5th of October in Barcelona this year.

    What the orga of this event also certainly succeeded at is launching a pre-party. I have to say it was a bit too loud inside, but a skybar they’ve picked had a balcony with an awesome view.

    It was a pleasure to deal with the orga team. The event ran out of space in the exhibition area shortly after it been announced, and Roelof just gave DAO.Casino a spot at the exhibition that the event orga themselves wanted to use for promoting their next event in October. Separate special thanks and a shout out to Roelof for that.

    On the same evening we went to another party — a launch of the ICO Crowd magazine to pick up a printed edition, where our teammate published Sergey article about cryptoeconomic design and his autonomous robotics project. Okay, we’re biased, but as far as we’re concerned it’s the most futuristic project covered by ICO Crowd magazine.

  • DAO.Casino Travel Guide to Ethereum: Paris and EDCON











    Playing “Hack the DAO” at the EDCON

    Our first nomadic team week was to EDCON in Paris in February. EDCON was a European edition of Devcon, and most of the Ethereum protocol level folk were present. Paris also have a very active Ethereum meetup, so one would enjoy hanging out there even without any big conferences. That was our first coming out of stealth moment.

    Apart from working on their own projects Ethereum communities produce a lot of absurd folklore, which makes the whole space extra fun. Take for example Intheoreum based on Bobchain, and Unicorn Meat Grinder — meta-dank Ethereum weirdo thing (you need to know what Unicorn token is about)

    To contribute to this tradition we’ve developed a contract based game called HackDAO, which tells a story of Slockit’s project The DAO in an indie game, specially for EDCON in Paris. We’ve presented at a subconference lead by grand poobah of cryptos William Mougayar.

    Back then we had a few options for the protocol architecture. By the time we got back we were sure about what we want to develop. Apart from the fleshing out the architecture, hard questions help you to formulate your project better.

    If you’re in love with your project and get stuck in your own bubble, solving one particular issue, you might miss something in your design. Tricky questions from your peers is a good way to avoid that.

    EDCON was hectic and great. And hanging out with the best minds in cryptoeconomics and decentralised tech on weekend after the conference was even better. Despite the fact that Ethereum is becoming insanely popular, it’s core devs stay open and community oriented. Specially if they see, that you’re interested in systems and protocols without centralised ownership, and not just came there to brag about your personal baby project.

  • DAO.Casino will provide protocol for True Flip Lottery

    DAO.Casino’s list of partners growing fast. We have already announced partnerships with exchange services CryptoPay, Changelly and startup accelerator Starbase. Now we have a newcomer — crypto-lottery True Flip.

    It should be pointed out, that DAO.Casino protocol was created to help such projects to evolve via decentralization and blockchain business model allows such kind of cooperation with different benefits for both sides.

    True Flip White Paper

    As for DAO.Casino, this partnership once again demonstrates to the entire gambling community all the advantages of using our protocol. This is a substantive confirmation of how easy it is to implement the DAO.Casino back-end and another argument in favor of the bright future ahead of our technology.

  • DAO.Casino Travel Guide to Ethereum: Berlin



    From left to right: Ksenya Bellman, DAO.Casino business developer,
    Aleksandra Fetisova DAO.Casino project manager, Ilya Tarutov DAO.Casino
    CEO


    A month later a team we did another team week on the road through Berlin, Zug and Munich. So we piled up in a bus with some Cyber.Fund folk and a big box of cookies. First stop Berlin where we picked up our bizdev and organised our first meetup.

    The goal of Berlin meetup was not to talk about our project so much, but to have discussions and presentations on cryptoeconomics at large and get feedback on DAO.Casino current iteration of PRNG solution (as a result of the conversations we had it was modified).

    Great thing about Berlin is that people living and working there have a good capacity to self organise and make things happen. Agora Collective, once we announced our meetup, provided us with a free venue. Video streaming was sorted by AdjyLeak (check out his youtube channel, he streams great decentralised tech talks, latest one was from Battlemesh), Aeternity team joined a meetup too.


    Ksenya Bellman, DAO.Casino business developer

    Berlin is where a lot of protocol level stuff is being built. Both Solidity team and Ethcore work from there. And decentralised tech projects other than Ethereum — such as Bigchain DB, IOTA, and Aeternity also happened to be based in Berlin. If you have a decentralised tech project, just move there or nearby.

    One bad thing about Berlin is that decentralised tech meetups happen pretty much every day. Some of them are great, but some of them are average or organised by large corporates who just think blockchains are cool and fashionable. Berlin Blockchain Meetup is usually nice. If you are planning to visit Ethereum Meetup at EthDev (really awesome protocol level and dapp presentations every month) please make sure you sign up — so that organisers know what to expect, and turn up early, so you can find a place to sit, because this meetup is usually very busy.

    The oldest meetup in town is Bitcoin Stammtisch, it happens every first Thursday of the month, and it’s no longer just about bitcoin. It happens at Room77 first brick and mortar establishment to accept bitcoin. Vitalik Buterin wrote a post about “The Room” in Bitcoin Magazine back in 2013. Order Rollberg beer which is brewed about 15min walk from the bar itself. If you pay for it with bitcoin, have no regrets when it goes to the moon again, and it will become the most expensive beer you have purchased in your life.

  • DAO.Casino Travel Guide to Ethereum: Prague and Vienna


    From left to right: Ksenya Bellman, DAO.Casino business developer, Aleksandra Fetisova DAO.Casino project manager

    Our 3rd nomadic team week started in Prague. Prague has a wonderful place called Paralelni Polis. A cafe downstairs has probably the best cappuccino one can buy with bitcoins, mind you, you can’t buy anything with fiat in the cafe. For those who don’t use cryptos there is a special machine to issue plastic cards that can be topped up with btc. This card is not really the best way to keep your cryptos, since the private key is printed on it, but good enough to keep some very small change to pay for your coffees and wine.

    The best time to visit Paralelni Police is during the Hacker’s Congress in October.

    Upstairs there is Institute of Cryptoanarchy running technical and less technical events focused on decentralisation, privacy and freedom. There we presented our decentralised PRNG implementation based on Signidice algorithm.

    Same as in Paris and Munich, we combined meeting locals with a large conference. Similar to BlockShow in Munich, this conference was targeting newcomers and presentations were less technical. Even though some complain about the fact that decentralised tech is attracting lately a lot of clueless “mainstream” people, this is actually also useful. That’s where you meet people who are interested but not completely hooked on this technology yet. Compare to Blockchain Conference in Prague EDCON would be more of a religious cult. Long story short, if you’re building some decentralised tech stuff, either Ethereum or not, and happen to end up in a more or less mainstream conference for noobs, don’t despair. Thats where you can do a reality check — whether you can still talk about your project in a language that people can understand. And this is important if we want to drive decentralised tech forward. ProTip — don’t talk about blockchains: first of all it became a buzzword, specially for the past couple of years, and no one benefits from a bullshit bingo. Better we start having more conversations about what blockchains and blockchain-like structures can can actually do, what these systems actually offer in the context of a particular industry, and even more important in cross-industry sense.

    Vienna Ethereum meetup is amazingly active and top mad scientist level. If you do a presentation there do not expect a noob audience. These guys follow decentralised protocols since a while back and the audience of this meetup is pretty advanced. One guy in the audience actually wrote his diploma about PRNG on EVM, yet we have to admit that he was very nice and didn’t troll us on stage at all.

    Space is cozy and futuristic, you would find some surprising installations there, and a miniature bookstore with a selection of good crypto-reads.

    We have heard that they are planning a bigger event in November that we will definitely attend.
