Welcome to Bookie!

https://www.peerplays.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/Bookie-HorzLogo-Black-RGB-400px-e1517881378236.png

Bookie is a sports betting DApp (Decentralized Application) built entirely on the Peerplays blockchain. The only sports betting exchange of its kind, Bookie will bring decentralized, provably fair sports betting to the world.

Although we have some pretty clear ideas about the sports, leagues and betting markets Bookie should be offering at launch, we’d like to reach out to the sports betting and crypto communities to find out what YOU want to bet on with Bookie. Please comment, reply, and discuss what you’d like to see.

A few things to consider:
  • Which sports will be playing around the time of launch, currently scheduled for end of Q1?
  • Which sports have multiple major leagues or competitions?  
  • Which betting markets could prove popular beyond traditional Moneyline, Over/Under, Spread/Handicaps markets?
  • Which sports have mass appeal to the betting community?  
  • While we’d love for every sport to be represented at launch, it’s important to note that not all suggestions will make it to the Bookie launch product. However, expect to see a constant growing of the Bookie offering through 2018 and beyond - your input here could make sure your favourite betting market makes it to Bookie sooner rather than later.

Quick refresher:
The Sport is the activity. For example: basketball, hockey, soccer.
The League or Competition is NBA, NHL, EPL.

Please note, any questions you may have on how the betting will take place, how to buy bitcoin, and any other operational or user experience questions about the DApp will be answered in due time. For now, we want to center the discussion around Sports + Leagues/Competitions.

We look forward to hearing the community’s thoughts. Thanks!
- The Bookie Team

Sounds cool,  but I think that you should be specified on how is it going to work, and how the team is going to benefit from the project?
Are you going to set up an ICO or something like that?

As you are planning to begin operations really soon, you should be providing more info about the project, road map would be really important to make sure that the project would keep running.
Would recommend you to search for a way to make it an online site sportsbook exchange, it would make it much easier for people to bet through your site, as there are a lot of people who doesn't own a windows PC and want to bet from their smartphones, so online site would suit it.

cryptocurrencies are owned by men, about 95%. Betting is mainly done by males too.
Age range for cryptos is 20 to 35 years (old).

I'm from Germany and within this age range. Over here, soccer is definitely the most hyped sport and people do bet on it. However football (NHL NFL) is becoming more and more popular for young adults.

Personally I would like to see some political bets as well (e.g. who is becoming next president of USA).

I hope you will provide an API eventually - I guess there might be profitable arbitrage bets for the arbitrage community which will increase volume of bets and acceptance (& awareness) of Bookie


Good luck!

I go to Vegas every year in March to bet on March Madness-NCAA Basketball. You could create brackets where users  pool their bets and the top 5 brackets pay out.  Or bet on a team making it to the final 4, or championship.

I think you could potentially disrupt fantasy sport leagues as well.

Looking forward to using Bookie

Football and Cricket are the most popular games for the sports betting. Football is popular all over the world and cricket is highly popular in indian subcontinent, UK, Australia, Caribbean and South Africa. There are many people who bets on the T20 cricket leagues like IPL and Big Bash league, so i would suggest you to also include cricket on your betting platform.

I would recommend you to start a signature campaign out here so you get more publicity. Then start with football and cricket bets. Also do a giveaway, you could ask people to deposit any money, or just do any random amount of money to be given as part of promotion. Also you'll have to give some proof you're legit I'm sure people will not trust you right away, so I think getting a legendary member to vouch for you will be a good idea.

Something special would be to bet on the next LOL or DOTA 2 championship. A lot of crypto enthusiasts are gamers. The pricepool for the 2017 DOTA2 tournament "The international" was stunning 25 Million USD (source https://www.esportsearnings.com/comparisons/zcdd-dota-2-vs-lol).

Hi @BillCoin,

We're doing an announcement later in January with even more details. In the meantime, it's worth reminding that we are actually part of the Peerplays Blockchain Standards Association (PBSA). You can read about and follow Bookie in the links provided in the original post. You can also read up on PBSA here.

Thanks!

Hi Kohloe,

Thanks for the message. We definitely plan to provide an API so that anyone can jump onboard Bookie. More info on that will follow as we get closer to launch.

And thanks for the suggestion!

March Madness would be great, and we're sorry to say we'll just miss it in 2018. Looking forward to the tournament in 2019!

Great call on cricket. We'd love to go live with that but it's a question of the variety of game types and other variables to balance up. As for football (assuming you mean soccer, here), you'll most likely see this at launch.

Thanks!

Great idea about having a legendary member on board! Did you have one in mind? Our beta testing is starting in the next month.

I second this.

Never in my lifetime would I have thought that "eSports" would become so legit and mainstream. Think about a decade ago even, there were barely anyone in the world making a living only from playing video games professionally and now we have $25,000,000 tournaments?! Incredible.

I think lots of younger folk would be betting on these things.

Yes you should consider E-sports, you totally will have a market worldwide. I do not came across a site that allows us to bet on our favorite team and if you add it you will be first of its kind.

Also you may add boxing and MMA fights i know the competition is tough on those sports but I am pretty sure there will still be bettors if your market is worldwide.

Good luck to your project.

I basically only interested in football NFL but super bowl is nearly around so it does not make any sense to add it from the beginning and rather concentrate sport event which occur after the official launch of bookie.

I would like to see
soccer: Champions League and Europe League and of course world championship
Olympic summer games
 
and events I don´t know any dates:
esports: dota, lol, cs:go
boxing and ufc
