https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=89506.0

I want to start a Bitcoin Gaming + Betting website where you can bet on your performance against other participants in various games (starting with Battlefield 3, then eventually adding Counter Strike, Starcraft 2, anything).

I have zero experience running a website. I don't have much of an idea on how to write a computer program that would interact with a Bitcoin client, deal with user accounts, or fetch information coming from the game. Lastly and most importantly I have no idea how to make sure the server I have running everything doesn't get hacked with everyone's Bitcoins ending up stolen.

But I have the capital to start a website, run a low ping Battlefield 3 server, and able to pay for free lancers to design a logo, web design, and what not. I have some experience with Flash's Actionscript 2.0. And I have a good idea of a fun betting formula for how funds would be bet/moved between players.

Where and how do I start?!

It's a great idea! What you want to do is find some people to work with, like you said.

Once you have 5 posts and have spent 4 hours on this forum, I'd suggest you post the idea in one of these boards:

Project Development
- or -
Service Announcements

One way you can get 4 hours is to read some of the threads on each of those. You can easily get 5 posts here on Newbies. Smiley

Very interesting idea, I hope it works out!

Thanks for the reply!

After talking to a friend that does video game design, and Google searching, it looks like I'm in way over my head. Security of people's accounts alone seems like a nightmare Cry.

Once I have 5 posts and post my idea in Project Development/Service Announcement, how will I know someone is trustworthy enough to work with?

When has that ever stopped a bitcoiner? Just store everything in plaintext and hope for the best.

Also it'd be ridiculously easy to get into a high stakes game, bet big and then use a hack to win the pot.

this betting on pvp with bitcoins could be played somewhat fairly on certain updated mmo's .... there are a few games out there that have become very hack proof. Eden Eternal comes to mind (not an fps but anime MMORPG)... they really beefed up security, i dont think many ppl out there have the know how to hack that game anymore or even bot it because the forums for such have died. its sorta a fun game... but requires a large amount of grinding for max lvl, however it would be fun maybe to make low lvl pvp chars... say a max cap of 15 to enter a certain fight, or 25 for another.. etc. i have a bit of experience with building websites / forums, and a bit of experience with gaming. if your serious about putting some work into it i might sign up for the project. its a great idea , the biggest problem i see is gaining interest in this idea, unless you have many to spend on advertising. gaming is the biggest thing on the net next to trolling facebook (LMAO) so with a lil advertising im sure the idea would gain momentum.

FPS for bitcoins/litecoins/virtual assets could be a good idea if done right.

I would be interested in setting up a dev team for this purpose, we can pay the developers with virtual shares.

For more info, check the link in my signature.

Why would you pay him? He has no real useful skills to contribute. It's not even an original idea.

No, I meant paying the developers. I corrected and updated my post to make it clear.

I appreciate all the encouragement Grin. I don't need people to pay me. I need a reliable and trustworthy person that has experience in hosting and creating a website that I can partner with. I'm familiar with flash actionscript, photoshop (logos?), and premier pro (Could make a video that showcases everything for our customers to share to bring more gamers in). Above all else I'm willing to risk the funds to operate this idea -- at a loss -- for up to a year (BF3 server, website, etc).

Games like Ultima Online had failed economies because of dup bugs and devs trying to make player happy by giving out gold. A MMORPG that used 1/1000ths of bitcoins for a game currency would be interesting.

I'd still like to see Entropia (entropiauniverse.com) adopt bitcoin (currently the game currency is essentially USD).
