Status: Pre-Proposal

Hello fellow Pivians! My first Pre-Proposal! This is a work in progress please leave any comments or suggestions below.

Overview

As an avid poker player, I noticed there are no private, decentralized, p2p poker rooms currently. There are a few open-source decentralized poker applications on Github that can be used for PIVX. This would potentially build into a community with player rankings, self-hosted p2p tournaments, and staking options. I believe the pieces are already there: it just needs a great web dev team to put it together and paint it purple. This gives PIVX (shield) an instant use case for a large online poker market that is mostly KYC(know your customer). I would like to call it Pivx.Poker

My Commitments/Experience

I am a Poker dealer with over 10+ years experience working in brick and mortar casinos and underground poker rooms. I volunteer to manage the project if there is no one available. I own Pivx.Poker and would like to be an Admin/Management. There will also be extensive product testing which will be open for everyone.

Proposal

This is a call for one or two web developers (preferably in-house) to rebrand a current poker system on Github. Currently pangea-poker is in Alpha testing. There are a few more and would be up to the developers depending on compatibility. After speaking to the community, this is a 2-3 month project and I propose paying those devs 3,100 PIV for 3 cycles. There will possibly be a future marketing Proposal once completed.

Poker rooms today charge a house fee or "rake". It is a small percentage of the players bets. I believe to avoid legal and licence trouble there should not be any house fee charged, only natural transaction fees.

A few community members suggested staking services and a community-based reward system.

This can be one of a suite of different p2p chance games.

Lets get this done and be pioneers again!

So it doesn't get lost on discord.

This a suggestion proposal for other Devs to pick it up and create it from github open source code.

If it's already working with Devs maintaining it I don't think it should take 2-3 months to do. Could be wrong but should be quite straightforward? I'm not a coder.

Thanks for the replies Borris

I was trying to recruit in-house devs with the Pre-Proposal. The actual proposal will have the actual team. I prefer a Pivx web dev but there are many good freelancers online. This is just a rebranding and tweaking of already available platforms. What do you think?

The games would be non-custodial so the site doesn't actually hold funds. Its all p2p. I was initially given a 1-2 month estimate by the community so that works if someone can do it faster. I wrote in 2-3 months to be safe

We dont have to re-invent the wheel here, the pieces are there and mostly made.
 
Would be good , if you could find good devs for that, not freelancers,as projects developed by PIVX should be good from both technology and design. Just my 2 PIVs.

Can comment from design point of view - it's to standard.. i would make it more attractive.

But overally , i like where it is going

Yes I would love if a in-house web dev stepped up. They would be fairly compensated for their time.

Borris suggested putting a picture up to help visualize the end goal. Of course, you are 100% invited to the design team when the time comes. I want it to look like Pivx.org naturally
