Crypto Kitties and Network Backlog

Those Darn Kitties

The Crypto Kitties application is causing major disruption to the Ethereum network. Ultimately this is good for Ethereum. For the reasons why, well, this is a good read.


As far as vDice games are concerned, vDice is processing bets with significant delays. Further, due to the increase in the uncle blocks caused by the network backlog, the randomDS Txs are failing more often.

vSlots Going Forward

vSlots is the latest game release in our Dapps section. It is decentralized and processes bets directly on the Ethereum blockchain.

The goal has always been to make truly decentralized betting games, on Ethereum, that are also usable. This is the next iteration in that journey. As always, we welcome your feedback, reports and suggestions.

Congratulations from vDice

Exchange Listings

This past month saw the VSL token proudly added to one of the ecosystems leading Alt-Coin exchanges; YoBit.

YoBit is a leading cryptocurrency exchange and leads trading volume in Russia. This should provide added liquidity for the token, as requested by many traders.

More exchange listings and collaborations will be announced over the next 3-months. Stay tuned for those announcements.

Development Progress

Production-ready solidity smart-contract code is leading front-facing implementations of the same code for user game-play. This has been identified as the key issue of concern on the development front.

We will only only be working with Ether Designs for the design of the games, going forward. For front-end web implementations of the games (Web3, Javascript, html, etc) we are hiring new developers. If you are interested in working with us please send your resume to [email protected]

Right now, in addition to working furiously to deliver the front-end for vSlots, we are also working on testing the current iteration of vBinary game.

Extensive testing will ensure that vBinary it is also ready for its own front-end implementation. Mock-ups for the design of vBinary are currently under-way.

Development Update October

In this development update October, 2017, we cover important ongoing development and operational information.

vSlots Beta

vSlots Alpha code is performing well on main-net. The UI/UX still has a few small, non-critical bugs. For that we would like to welcome Danny Donahue to the team.

Danny started coding Commodore BASIC in the early/mid 80’s. Now focusing the majority of his time on HTML, CSS, JS (with PHP), GoLang and Ruby, he has expanded into Ethereum in the past year.

His work bringing a first-grade, intuitive and user-functional vSlots game is of the highest order.

We are pleased to update on developments for the month of August 2017.

On track to 100,000 bets

For the main vDice game over 10,000 bets have been processed in just under 1-month. At this rate the main vDice game will process 100,000 bets well before the end of the 2017. This has exceeded everyone’s expectations.

Over 15,000 ETH has been processed in winnings to players in just over a year since going live (approx. $4.5m at current exchange rate).

This Month’s Multisig Incident

Multisig Incident : What Happened?

Last week’s Multisig incident involved a little know vulnerability in Parity’s implementation of their Multi-Sig wallet that was exploited by some black-hat hackers. You can read a basic review of events here. Or, for a more detailed analysis, have a read here.

A few leading projects lost millions of dollars to the black-hat hackers. A large number of projects also had their funds hacked, but by white-hat hackers.

vDice Multisig Wallet was NOT affected.
