Hello,

I would like to present my project I've been working on over the past few months.
It's a site where you will be able to play trivia quiz games for bitcoin.
The idea is quite simple. The site will feature multiple daily quizzes. Small, medium and big quizzes. Each with their own duration and question amount.
Every user that wants to participate has to pay the quiz participation price (about 0.1 btc).
90% of the participation price goes to the quiz pot and the pot is divided amongst those with the highest score for that quiz.
I'm also thinking of adding a ranking feature to the first release.

The project isn't finished yet but at least 70% of the work is done.
The prelaunch page is up where people can add themselves to the waiting list and reserve their username in the process.
I plan on launching in march.

So what do you think about this site?
If you got any questions, I'm happy to answer them.
I would like to know what the bitcoin community thinks about my little project  Smiley

Thank you for the replies Smiley

The design will probably be improved upon once we go public or after a month or two. Our focus now is on getting the functionality done. Then testing. And if the site is popular enough, I'll let a professional designer do his work.  Smiley

Some technical details for whose interested. The site template is based on twitter bootstrap which provides a very good and clean start. The backend code uses the php laravel framework for most of the pages. The quiz game itself however works with node.js and sockets.io because it's very fast and fancy. Data for active quizzes is stored in Redis.

It's like Google Trivia with paramutual betting. That's an interesting way to monetize it. That might be a good way to go for puzzle games with bitcoin.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Didn't know about Google trivia, looks cool  Smiley

I thought about the problem of people looking up the answers in Google. I was going to prevent this by allowing only 10-15 seconds to answer the question. Then again my database contains hard questions too. Some of which I don't think the average user will know the answer. I might make the allowed time per question dependant on the question. Allowing more time for harder questions. Not sure about this.

It's cool to see people sign up, do continue  Wink

Some features i plan for the future:

- Monthly rankings for most quizzes played with a price
- Monthly rankings for most correct answers with a price
- Monthly rankings for most quizzes won
- Badges & reputation
- Special themed quizzes (spanning multiple days)

I like the concept.
Hope it releases soon!

EndTheFed123, if you had just taken the money it wouldn't have ended like this Sad
BTW this hasn't been the real DPony13 since he "came back", I just hacked this account, SirLolicon is the real DPony13 I think.
