Title: Pivx.Poker Development Name: PIVX.Poker-Dev-JanMar2021 Term: 3 Cycles Cycle Amnt: 3,100 PIV Total Amnt: 9,300 PIV Author: Rwenzori Receiver: Web Devs Address: TBA Created: 2021-01-01 Status: Pre-Proposal
Hello fellow Pivians! My first Pre-Proposal! This is a work in progress please leave any comments or suggestions below.
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
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.
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!
