I thought about real world use cases for the blockchain, while I heard a Lotto commercial in the background radio.
Then my idea of a blockchain based Lotto system was born and I created a system thats not controlled by the state, transparent, anonym and helps the NEM network to grow in transactions and attention.
Today I finished a Beta, thats currently running on testnet:
How does it work?
This is a bit different to the conventional Lotto you already know. We dont guess 6of49 numbers here.
We do this with the blockchain and try to guess the first numbers of a block hash.
For this we use the first block, that is created after each Saturday 18:00 UTC.
To play, you just initiate a transaction with a message (Your guess) and a fee and you’re in.
After the block appears, the system compare your prediction with the block hash.
If your prediction was correct, the jackpot will be transmitted back to your sender address.
(Please have a look at the site, there is a manual and a gif )
If you have a testnet account, it would be really cool if you play a bit and test the system.
I also created a new Telegram group for this, if you’re interested in this project and want to talk about it.
Feel free to join:
So let me know what you think about this.
Any thoughts or ideas?
The frontend and backend are pretty bare-bones yet.
There is much work to do here, so please don’t judge me.
