1  Economy / Gambling discussion / Boxing: Haney vs Kambosos II (Undisputed) on: July 22, 2022, 06:08:20 AM


So Top Rank's Bob Arum failed to persuade George Kambosos to face another opponent before demanding a rematch with undisputed champion Devin Haney. George Kambosos officially exercised his rematch clause against undisputed champ Devin Haney. The planned date is on October 15 at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne. It is the same venue as the very popular Australian Open (tennis).

I think the first fight was very boring and Haney clearly outscored Kambosos. I think it will happen again. But maybe the difference is that Kambosos will let his hands go right after the opening bell. Despite the boring first fight, we better expect another sold-out crowd as this is once in a lifetime experience in Australia. People will still go for sure. It is probably the PPV buys that will take a hit. Unless they both can promote this fight well. Haney is a boring trash-talker though but a mad Kambosos isn't.   
2  Economy / Gambling discussion / Double Unification Fights: Shields vs Marshall / Mayer vs Baumgardner on: July 06, 2022, 10:23:02 AM


Earlier this year, boxing fans witnessed arguably the biggest fight in women's boxing history, the Taylor-Serrano fight. Thanks to Eddie Hearn's Matchroom Boxing and DAZN. But we are not done yet. Bob Arum's Top Rank and ESPN are set to break women's boxing records. This time, it's a double-header unification event in London, England this September 10.

The Ring, WBA, WBC and IBF undefeated middleweight champion Claressa Shields will unify with the last remaining belt holder in WBO champion, the undefeated Savannah Marshall. Claressa Shields is already a decorated fighter before turning pro. She is a two time gold medalist in the Olympics. While Shields wanted to unify all the belts to make herself an undisputed champion, she also wants to take revenge on Marshall who beat her when they were in the amateurs.

In the other main event of the evening, undefeated The Ring, IBF and WBO super-featherweight champion Mikaela Mayer will try to add another piece of her collections, the WBC belt held by another undefeated champion Alycia Baumgarder. The other remaining champion is WBA holder Hyun Mi Choi of South Korea. The winner between Mayer and Baumgardner might move up in weight and fight the biggest name in women's boxing, the undisputed lightweight champion of Ireland, Katie Taylor.

The difference between this event and Katie Taylor's are the trash talking. We won't be lucking them as both 4 protagonists were already trash talking each other since they became world champions together.

 

                
3  Economy / Gambling discussion / Kazuto Ioka vs Donnie Nietes II on: July 02, 2022, 08:55:05 AM


This is a rematch between two 4-division champions, WBO champion Kazuto Ioka defending against its former holder and nemesis, Donnie Nietes. The first match happened more 3 years ago in Macau for then vacant WBO super flyweight strap. Though Donnie Nietes won clearly, the scorecards made it a split decision. Donnie Nietes then became inactive and many thought he was actually retired because he was already 37 years old that time. The WBO decided to declare the belt vacant. Kazuto Ioka managed to win the belt and is holding it strong with 4 successful defenses.

The difference in this rematch is that 33-year old Ioka is now the defending champion. Nietes is now 40 years of age. And Ioka will defend his belt in his home turf in Japan.

Kazuto Ioka win-loss record: 28-2-15 KOs
Donnie Nietes win-loss record: 43-1-23 KOs

5  Economy / Gambling discussion / Katie Taylor vs Amanda Serrano on: April 12, 2022, 04:19:21 PM


This coming April 30, fight fans will witness a mouth-watering and the biggest fight in women's boxing. Two future hall of famers will collide in a multi-million dollar fight in the mecca of boxing, the Madison Square Garden. 7 division champion Amanda Serrano, a knockout artist from Puerto Rico will challenge the undisputed, 2 division world champion, and an Olympic gold medalist, the undefeated Katie Taylor of Ireland.

I am just so excited on this fight. This is something very big for women's boxing. Hopefully this big fight will also lead to Claressa Shields vs Savannah Marshall unification fight this year.

Game link: ♛♛♛NBA Prediction Tournament [0.027BTC Prize Pool]♛♛♛

Hindi ko alam kung saan ako magsimula. Angry Sad Undecided Siguro from the beginning. Early March 2020 nakabakasyon ako sa probinsiya. Start na sana sa finals pagkauwi ko kaso biglang nagkaroon ng lockdowns at pati NBA games suspended din lahat. Sobrang hina ng signal ng lugar ni erpat kaya halos wala chance makapag online using mobile data at pansamantalang naging inactive. So ayon halos isang taon ako sa province dahil di ko na rin pinilit makauwi lalo na mas mataas infections sa mga crowded at big cities.

Nakauwi ako February 2021, then nakalabas sa quarantine March na. Actually pilit rin pagkauwi since yung bahay ko nagkaroon ng napakalaking issue. By April nalaman ko na wala na pala si asu. Naka-red tagged na pala at naging inactive. Lahat ng convo namin sa telegram burado rin lahat. Baka meron dito may personal information sa kanya pwede niyo ko ma-pm or sa tg @YearsRunning. Nag-message na rin ako kay bL4nkcode para dun sa mga nag donate.

Kabalik ko lang dahil ngayon lang ulit naging available. At bago maging busy ulit dahil sa mga possible new ventures irl ay kailangan ko talagang tapusin ang palarong to. Passion ko rin talaga kasi NBA. At perfect ngayon dahil halos back to normal na NBA with 82 regular games at pa-start na playoffs. Tsaka ayoko rin talaga masayang mga efforts noong nakaraan. Nagka usap rin kami ni bisdak40 last year at gusto rin niya na tapusin ang palaro. Ang issue lang talaga is yung premyo. Last year nasa P75k yung prizepool. At wala akong available na ganung pondo.

Meron akong proposal para hindi bitin at matapos nato. Willing ako mag-donate ulit noong original prizepool ko pero yung Philippine peso value at the time na napost ang tournament thread which was November 1, 2019. Around 9,400 pesos then convert na lang natin into btc later on. Gusto ko kasi start ng final stage sa day 1 ng playoffs kaagad.  

Another thing is yung mga sponsors. Meron kasi iba dun na nagpadala na talaga ng pondo. Antayin ko feedback ni bL4nkcode sa mga nakapagpadala. Tsaka yung mga nag-commit. Pero since pandemic tayo, hindi talaga natin pwede e-enforce yun unless willing pa sila.

Gusto ko makuha feedback, reactions at mga suggestions niyo guys. PM ko na rin yung mga nasa top 10 baka inactive na yung iba. PM ko rin yung mga sponsors. Thanks.

@OP, ambag rin ako ng 0.002 BTC for this competition para mas lalong ganahan yong mga participants dito sa competition mo, but i will send my pledge middle December 2019 na siguro or earlier.
@inthelongrun naipadala ko na po yung pandagdag sa papremyo para sa ating mga kababayan.
Ito na po yung TXID: https://www.blockchain.com/btc/tx/ec8069d7bc28472f6eedd7cda39dbe3ad0e033727c561731bc61fe1ccef31280
       

        Prize breakdown will be as follows:

        2nd Runner Up: 15% of the pool or BTC0.00390
        3rd Runner Up:  10% of the pool or BTC0.00260

        4th Runner Up: BTC0.001 sponsored by Darker45

        
                Requirements in order to participate in this contest:
                1. At least Member in rank
                2. No red tag
                3. No alt accounts
                4. Accounts must be active since last October 2019
                5. Earned at least 2 merits


Duration of the game:
First Stage or 60-day Elimination Period - All qualified participants are to predict the winners of the games posted to earn/lose points.
The Final Stage - Only top 10 of the participants with the highest points will proceed to this stage. The first to reach 12 points wins the game. Once a participant reaches 12 points the tournament officially ends (all the remaining live picks for that day are still to be counted).

***In case of a 12 points tie. The *top 10 ranked finalists will continue with their prediction picks until there is an established single points leader.    
***In case of a tie in the runner ups, the First Stage ranking acts as the tie-breaker.
***If the First Stage ranking is not enough to decide (unlikely) on runner ups tie then we will set another games for them to predict until settled.    



Mechanics of the Game:
1. I will be posting games daily and qualified participants can predict the winner of each game.
2. Cut-off time will be 23:59 GMT +8 or approximately 5 hours to 11 hours before every game starts.In order to be fair to participants having a hard time with the cut-off time. New cut-off time will be before the NBA official game time schedule, https://stats.nba.com/schedule/.  
3. It is not necessary to predict all posted games. This way contestants missing some of the games due to priorities in life are not in a disadvantage to those active with their daily picks.
4. Every correct game prediction will be given 1 point and a wrong prediction is -1 point. A bad prediction has consequences just like in the real betting world. Quality over quantity wins the game.    
5. You can change picks before cut-off time by quoting your old prediction and posting the updated one. Do not edit and delete.
6. When the games are starting already deleting and editing of predictions are considered cheating and you will be automatically banned in this game.
7. Participants reaching their accumulated total scores to -5 will be automatically eliminated in this tournament.

Additions to clarify and simplify the game

NO NEW PARTICIPANTS AFTER DAY 30 MATCHES

With regards to the 60-day elimination round. Let us not accept any new participants after day 30 matches. It diminishes the spirit of the game. The possibility that most of the participants will continue to have low scores but were able to survive elimination, it is a good accomplishment already and they deserved the rights to fight for the top 10. We cannot allow new participants to just hopped in, take advantage and try their luck in the late stage of the elimination period.

This additional rule also means that those below the top 10 ranks need to step up. It is either they face the risk of elimination in order to reach the top 10 or stay below top 10 which doesn't make any sense. Remember, top 10 participants if feeling safe can stop predicting and hold on with their points. But for those trying to top the ranking in the First Stage, they do have an advantage during the Final Stage.

***In case of a tie in the runner ups, the First Stage ranking acts as the tie-breaker.  
         

ONLY TOP 10 RANKED PARTICIPANTS LEFT IN THE GAME ENDS THE FIRST STAGE BEFORE 60 DAYS

Because the championship round or the final stage matters most. So if only the top 10 players remained in the game, they can stop predicting and just hold on with their points. So we would rather end the First Stage early and proceed to the final and championship round.

In case of inactive participants as the only remaining survivors outside the top 10, they will be informed thru pm with a deadline if they want to continue.

 

Notes:

8  Economy / Gambling discussion / Sports Betting Contest on: October 19, 2019, 07:05:50 AM
NBA won the poll.

Here is the NBA Prediction thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5197850.0






I am planning to stage a betting contest. Now I am undecided which sports. I like soccer since it is very popular and its many exciting games. NBA would be perfect too as new season is about to start. And there's also the other popular sports like tennis, mma, e-sport, etc.

I also noticed that editing a post few minutes after it was posted and have minor changes cannot be tracked? Can someone help me with this, please.

I am planning not to allow edits. They can just quote their previous post and then predict again.  


Add-ons:
My initial plan is purely predicting the winner so I will be looking into matches that are competitive. A correct prediction is 1 pts while a wrong prediction gets you -1 pts. This simple mechanic allows those that missed the prediction (e.g. traveling, working hours, bad internet, etc.) the chance to stay competitive. This is necessary especially when the tournament is coming to an end.

My initial prize pool would be BTC0.02 only. Economy is bad but I wanted this game for a long time. This is just for fun anyway. But there is a chance that I will be putting up more. I read a comment for possible donations. Yes, I think we will be accepting donations from willing sponsors. There will be an escrow for the prize pool (op and sponsors).

For now break-down of the prize would be like:
1st - BTC0.01
2nd - BTC0.005
3rd and 4th - 0.0025BTC each

Anymore suggestions, especially for mechanics? I would be glad.  

I still don't know the duration of this game. I wish I had the funds to make the prize pool big enough to prolong the duration of this contest. I just realized that the best games in NBA (playoffs) and soccer (leagues ending and UEFA) will start in the 2nd quarter of next year.  



9  Local / Pamilihan / Exchange Alert: CoinExchange Ending its Services on: October 17, 2019, 08:18:49 AM


This is to inform everyone here na magsasara na nga pala ang CoinExchange.io. Panigurado marami rin dito ang may accounts sa CoinExchange kasi isa rin to sa pinakapaborito ng mga altcoin gem hunters.

This is their official statement dated last October 1, 2019.

Code:
Coinexchange.io is Closing Down

It is with great regret that we must inform the community that the board of directors of CoinExchange.io has decided to close down the exchange.

This is purely a business decision and there has not been a security breach or any other type of incident. Unfortunately it is no longer economically viable for us to continue offering market services. The costs of providing the required level of security and support now outweigh our earnings.

Trading and deposits will be suspended on the 15th of October 2019. Please cease any deposit and trade activity as soon as possible.

The website and withdrawals will remain operational until the 1st of December 2019. We ask that you please remove all funds by this date.

It has been a fantastic journey and we have enjoyed playing a part in the crypto currency space. We thank everyone that has traded or listed a currency with us.

So sadly it is goodbye for now however we may return in the future if market conditions change.

https://www.coinexchange.io/news/post/85/

Last October 15 pa yung last trading day. Which means mapipilitan tayo na withdrawhin ang maraming altcoins sa kanya kanyang wallets. Withdrawal deadline sa December 1, 2019 pa naman. Pero mas mainam na withdrawhin na kaagad ASAP. Pwede kasing iiwan na nang team ang mismong site at in case magkaroon ng problema baka wala nang support. Share nyo na rin sa mga friends nyo sa crypto at baka di pa nila alam to. Ako kasi andami kong friends na merong account sa exchange na ito at pinatulog lang nila habang naghihintay na tumaas ang presyo or malista sa mga big exchanges.
