Sports Betting Blockchain Projects | Coin Listings Overview May 2019

in news •  5 months ago  (edited)



There are many Sports Betting Blockchain projects in development. To keep track of what is going on in the space I try to make a monthly roundup of the listings, price action and news updates.


News Overview

The space of Sports Betting Blockchain projects is really moving forward at a really slow pace lately. The potential of this technology combined with betting is great and I still strongly believe it will revolutionize the way we see bookmakers just as Betfair and Asian bookmakers were a step forward. It is however looking like it will all take a lot of time.

Mevu

There was some sign of life from this project that I reviewed about a year ago on my Steemit blog (See Review). They are having a token sale and made a post about it on Steemit pushing it to the trending page. I'm not sure how successful this fundraising will be after many got burned by the ICO craze in 2017. Right now I don't have the slightest interest in the Mevu Project but I will be keeping an eye on it.



Wagerr


Wagerr came with an update that they are still working on the HTML 5 wallet and released a testnet version on Wednesday, May 29th. (See Info Post). One of the things I really dislike is the fact that the odds shown are pre 6% commission which is very misleading. I haven't tested WGR 3.0 out yet. It can be downloaded on Github


Blitzpredict

The Blitzpredict team continues to bring regular updates which is something other projects (Caugh Scorum) could learn something from. You can read their latest update on their medium blog (Here). Many of us here on Steemit/Scorum are still using their platform to verify betting predictions. I'm waiting for the new Belgian Season and will continue to be active their once that starts again. The main question I can't really answer properly about Blitzpredict is what would give the token value.


Betterbetting


Betterbetting is one of the projects I similar to Blitzpredict like but don't see that much of a reason why the token would be valuable. I somewhat neglected this project for a while but it seems they have a betting platform online with odds. (I'm not exactly sure how it operates). The offered odds are similar to what asian bookmakers are bringing so no real innovation there so far even if it's likely possible to at times get the best odds with them. They integrate with EOS also and now accept bets with BETR, ETH and EOS. I tested it out with EOS using Scatter and my Nano Ledger S but it seems to give an error message. I'd be happy to use them making some bets with EOS and will see if I can find out how to get it working this month. Their platform can be found on betr.bet and offers a wide range of sports and lines with a nice interface. I'll be keeping a closer watch on this one from now on.


Marginless

There was a tweet a couple of days ago saying 'huge news will come' with a new partnership which made the price jump. I still don't really take this project very seriously.

Scorum

Every month I think Scorum can't fall any deeper, yet each time it succeeds to exceed my already disappointed view in it. It has really come to the point that I lost all my belief in the Development Team and I noticed that I simply stopped caring and I'm not the only one clearly. The way this project has been run is just beyond a disgrace and none of it makes any sense whatsoever. There was some sign of life from the devs last month posting a ridiculous "My Favorite Stadium" post which pretty much indicates the direction they still want to go while they have potential gold in their hands with Betscorum. I acted as a bookmaker on Betscorum for both the Europa League and Champions League Finals and a lot of these offers were still taken up showing again that there are people willing to still use the product giving SCR a real use case if only...

The price dumped -55.7% compared to last month and sits now at 0.0126$ with the market cap being overtaken by Bethereum who have an inferior product but an actual marketing team. The summer is Soccer season is over and with no new sports Betscorum will be even more a Ghost Town. The few that are left on the platform are waiting for a promise message from @vlad but it's already clear that this likely will be another empty promise time winning message keeping up the facade just like everything they brought the last 4-5 months.

Good review. As experienced sport bet player what do you think about this strategy ? To try to win odd 3 or greater and after every fail to double stake until win, then bet from beginning. Like 30 E budget and then start bet with 1 when lose 2, when lose 4, when lose 8 when lose 16 and then once win 16x3=48 (lost 31 won 16) start again from 1. Only condition is not miss 5 in a row, and if you miss 5 in a row you need big break.

Basically the way you have to look at martingale is to see each stake size as seperate bet sample. So the 1 unit stake will have most bets and the amount of bets will go down for each stake size. As long as all the 1 unit Bets / 2 unit bets / ... themselves are not +EV you will lose eventually. It's the classic gamblers fallacy and one of the hardest things to mentally get passed as a bettor. Previous results don't have an influence on future results. if it has been 'odds' 15 times in a row, the chance of the 16th tilme being odds again is 50%. it's as simple as that. These martingale strategies pretty much come down to having 99% to win at 1.009 odds you can win for a while and will then lose it all and more with 1 bet eventually.

If anything, I would say do try it out with small stakes, you will likely learn a great lesson which is worth the losses. Good Luck !

Well when I tried and played with my fater we run as high as +1000 E from basic 20 stake. Maybe we got luck. When I try alone I can easily miss 5 in a row. I know probability is always the same, but there is one when I connect 2-3 parlay bets on great favorites with like 1.40 - 1.50 odds. From 5 times they should play as I want or to win once from 5 times X where clubs are close to each other. I tried with X and miserable failed.

Hm, and I thought that Scorum will be better than Steem for sports oriented communities when it came out.

I don't visit it at all. And now it's already too late to power down, ain't it?

The powerdown takes 12 months (otherwise the price likely would be even lower)

The potential for this platform is still there and there is little point in selling at current prices. I guess we are forced to put our hopes on the devs and see how it all plays out.

Yes, exactly. I did the same math yesterday and it's not worth bothering with the power down.

We are all holders by dese😂

OK, you have much more SP and you can afford occasional powered beer 🍻
