Legal stuff - lawyers? This would have to be hosted somewhere, which location is on your mind?

Just wanted to put the idea out here, when rigged unfair centralized online poker was unregulated in the US around 2005, quite a few people were into it.

Online poker is the game of poker played over the Internet. It has been partly responsible for a huge increase in the number of poker players worldwide. Christiansen Capital Advisors stated online poker revenues grew from $82.7 million in 2001 to $2.4 billion in 2005 - wikipedia

There are currently 3 states that offer legal online poker in the United States – New Jersey, Nevada, and Delaware.

Could this be decentralized? not hosted? built into a wallet? Could the blockchain record and deal cards?

Masternode servers host service?

Thanks for the replies.

I think for the moment let’s get to the point of the legal issue. we’re playing poker we don’t sell drugs. we put the site on a foreign server and that’s it. if the platform starts to get big then we can think about legality. but first it has to work. legal issues are all about wasting time.

Thanks Solid I agree with your logic. We are small fish and this is all just for entertainment purposes only. Didn’t mean to get the wrong idea out there.

Is the law less strict if we play in private parties?
I mean for example; I start my poker server and I invite 6-8 people to play with me (on my VPS)?

I think at this point, any free online poker game played is ok, maybe we takeout the easy buy in/law issue all together and focus on this is a game played by our video cards and no money has been exchanged anyway. they will find an way to get in our btcz to btcz if its a great place to play to play free online poker with the GPU things made?

I find that this idea is awesome ! Let’s create a “Poker Mining Pool” :grin:
You are mining on the address that will be used as “Play Chips” :laughing:

Could everyone mine, even with a CPU ? …for a couple of BtcZ, 500 per days. :thinking:
In any case, it could be fun!

I think this project can be lead by the author (you) as a side project inside BtcZ.
I cannot see any reason to be proposed/ voted for.
If it has a reason, Im very curious and please explain why it needs to be voted instead of taking actions to make it happen.
Personally I dont support any gambling, its always for easy money making for the house. Its never a winner thing for a player. However a self made Gambling site can be Honest. To make a gambling site legal, should need to be attached to a legal entity (company).
Companies above BtcZ community would break our Decentralization, its against our whitepaper.
Inside our Community, any numbers of groups or entities can be made, which is partly or entirely lead by the community or has rights.
But easiest way: to get a casino accept BtcZ coins itself, so we dont need to build a legal background for it.
Feel free to geather interested members of this project and I suggest to aim first sites which accepts Cryptocurrencies and connect with them, ask for an offer.

Hi FollowWings, thanks for your thoughts and input. I was away for a bit.

Just focusing on Texas holdem poker tournament play.

This is a last man standing game of skill where the host only takes a small fee to fund our BTCZ charity for providing the environment like any other game tournament played. The cards being dealt is the same luck as where you spawn in a game, the rest is skill.

Personally having played in quite a few over the years outside of the casinos, I don’t consider Texas holdem poker tournament play to be “gambling” and I really wouldn’t want any mob run gambling casino house touching my crypto.

Thanks

Poker doesn’t have the same house advantage as other casino games as long as the dealer is switched every round.

Update:

I think I may have found a possible partner for this poker idea.

I have been playing here https://blockchain.poker for the last few days and like how this is setup and operates.

Anonymous accounts

100 satoshi for free to start

if you lose everything you get another 100 free to start over with or can buy in.

They currently only offer BTC, BCH, and BSV.

I think BTCZ would be a good fit their partner program to raise funds if the community shows enough interest?
