Hello everyone, my name is Ardon Lukasiewicz and it my pleasure to discuss what we're developing and its implications to bitcoin and gaming.

After a year of research and months in planning and development, I am proud to announce our company Bitmarkers. We offer the first real world bitcoin gaming and disrupt the underlying financial transfers process of the >$100bn global gaming industry! All players are no longer burdened by third-party mediators in the trip decisions, remove upwards to %10 cuts from financial institutions (China, South America, etc), have complete player-casino trust established on our behalf, and can finally be secured with the privacy of their funds. I have worked in corporate and operational finance within the gaming industry for most of my professional career and am brother to Coinsetter's CEO Jaron Lukasiewicz.

We are focused on providing several advantages to the gaming industry including:
  • Real player privacy,
  • Frictionless and free global transfers,
  • Removal of a player's government and bank in gambling repayment,
  • Lowered trip costs for players,
  • New and exciting revenue for casinos themselves,
  • Also new and exciting marketing potential,
  • Removed risks such as the >$100mm bad debt problem (figure only includes Vegas strip) among others,
  • ...and many innovations to the financial process, customer service, analysis, and player management perspectives

We are disrupting and innovating the largest section of the gaming industry which has seen few changes since its creation. Our process will be far more similar to what you may be used to with online gaming, but with added benefit of real world fun, world-class hospitality treatment, and comps!

Currently, the keys to our success include worldwide gaming-casino partners, marketing, and locking down investment from either the potentials we are already talking to or new friends introduced to the concept. It is my current life goal to provide a spectacular system, simple and beautiful, that also pushes the boundaries of bitcoin's market itself. Las Vegas alone is an $11bn gaming market and Macau is multiples larger with severe trip funding issues. On any given week, a single player can be responsible for tens of millions in transaction volume totaling hundreds of millions in a given year (what we consider 'extraordinary players').

We are nearing the point, as a company that has been working relentlessly behind the scenes, to developing a great product and locking in the final goals necessary to a smooth launch. I would love to hear your feedback on what we're doing, answer any questions you may have, and please feel free to visit www.bitmarkers.com/announcements to sign up for our beta!

Thank you and all the best,

Ardon Lukasiewicz
CEO of Bitmarkers

Thanks! I'd love to do discuss possibly some cross-promotion or potentially some combined online/offline sponsorships.

I am a panelist at Inside Bitcoin conference in Las Vegas in December and was considering online BTC gaming groups and/or casino partners to go in as co-sponsors for a booth if you have interest. Regardless, I am interested in meeting the online gaming groups if you (or anyone else reading this) would like to skype or email sometime. Speaking of talking to people, I offer a free invitation to share a drink in Vegas or discuss all things gaming/bitcoin so feel free to drop me a line as well.

Thank you for the positive feedback, everyone.

Would anyone mind if I use these as quotes within our marketing materials or potentially on the website itself? Also, don't forget to sign up for the beta. It is an extreme focus of mine to be awesome to our first users and start a community-culture that goes beyond just our service.

One idea I had was for a bitcoin sportsbook in LV - with the latest odds from bitbook, bit365 and the local casinos. + wifi so you can bet right there.
Btc-currency exchange onsite, and a good coffeeshop in there too. That would be awesome.

I can look into the legality of it if you'd like but anything brick-and-mortar in regards to gaming (worldwide) has a lot of legislation around it.

The ideas are great and I can't wait to see some of it implemented. In-room gaming was legalized in 2011. I would assume that the technology and audits for the software will become available soon too. Real world and online gaming will become more and more seamless many online laws are being created and opened up. Our company actually pursues this "seamless" vision since a player can game online or in commercial casinos with their BTC.

This sounds cool, but many players use btc due to its anonymity while gambling.

Do you expect to have many players sign up for this? I think it would be very costly to fly someone to Vegas. Also, many Bitcoin users prefer to keep their identities private (which could be why they use Bitcoin).

Yes I do, from both current gaming players (regular users) and bitcoin users themselves. Bitcoin is just a currency and we offer the best vacation option, the only real life gaming, and more gaming privacy than any other method. A player's funds before and after the trip can stay in their account or be moved back to their wallet. It is completely their choice when or if they want to exchange them back to fiat. From a privacy standpoint, this is far greater than real-time bank and government transfers/relations and is also revolutionarily streamlined since current paying methods are convoluted on a per-person, per-country, and per-bank basis.

We do verify a player's identity, but only us and the casino know who you are and on-site you can go by an alias. We also never disclose your wallet's public address to any third party. We are considering doing "security checks" that will alert you to whether your account has a warrant (via a message that appears and updates regularly until a breach happens which stops those updates - this is a cypherpunk alert method). I will validate if our community wants this through our secret forums (members can only invite, no one else can read it, original invites from beta signups).

Regular players, especially international, benefit from 100% trust establishment with a casino through us (we act as the point of trust here), lowered trip costs and middle-man fees/hurdles, possibly remove the need for an international high roller to buy US property for transfers, a simplified process, and higher security/privacy. There are other benefits as well and we'll be marketing them on a per-country basis of problems solved.

We currently have hundreds of thousands of disclosed gaming interest from our current beta members without spending anything on marketing and with very minimal marketing ourselves yet.

For another example of the markets we target, China/Macau is huge for us. We can solve their money laundering problem and strict money transfer requirements (you can only move ~$3k into Macau). Currently, players use shady group fund methods to move money in, which is only for high rollers, and the best way to gamble in Macau is through fake transactions in pawn shops (these typically are a 10% cut).

I am happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
