Gambling platforms are dime a dozen. With hundreds of online gambling platforms out there, ones that do things differently stand out. vDice is one such platform which makes gambling with cryptocurrencies a lot easier.
The platform based on Ethereum blockchain allows gamblers to get into the game right away without having to go through a long registration and deposit process. In order to gamble on the platform, all they have to do is visit the website, choose one of the smart contracts, transfer ether into the displayed wallet address and pick a number. Depending on whether they win or lose, the winnings will be transferred back to the players’ wallet. Else, the losses are counted as profits for the platform and distributed across shareholders contributing towards the smart contract.
vDice offers a transparent gambling platform which is provably fair and offers instant payouts. The payouts are processed within minutes of the game execution. Each betting contract has its winning odds, minimum and maximum bets, price multiplier and the range of lucky numbers listed. Users will have to just follow the instructions and try their luck.
Now, vDice is growing beyond just a gambling platform. It is creating a whole blockchain-based gaming ecosystem. As a part of its initiative, vDice will be making blockchain transaction processing more efficient and faster. It will also start developing more game offerings in parallel to ensure that every player has a game suitable for his/her tastes available on the platform.
Further down the line, vDice will be offering the necessary infrastructure and tools to enable developers to create their own games. These blockchain games, created as decentralized apps (DApps) can then be published within the vDice ecosystem.
The game platform has an ongoing ICO to raise the funds required for further development. During the ICO, investors can buy vSlice crypto tokens and gain a stake in the project. These tokens can also be traded on some of the leading exchanges for other cryptocurrencies as well.
vDice has struck few strategic partnerships with media outlets and development teams to ensure the project’s success. Oraclize, a leading smart contract and Oracle development team based out of London are responsible for some of the technology marvels on vDice.
With just a few more days to go, it is the right time to invest in the vDice ICO. It’s better to be late than sorry.
