First Lock Period Review

Last week was big for vDice. It was the 1st week that the entire Smart Contact system was really tested. The below is a lock period review for this first time.

The system works via interacting autonomous Ethereum Smart Contracts.

There are the Game Smart Contracts. You can see the addresses at the vDice site. These are connected through to the ProfitContainer Smart Contract.

The address for the ProfitContainer Smart Contract is here: 0x51FFC1b089392a5bb65BF24EAf04d07D0e6F88B5#internaltx

The ProfitContainer Smart Contract code has proved itself, as an autonomous entity. Holders of VSL were able to call ETH from it successfully, using the special function on the network.


Important Notes

A couple of important things to remember:

  1. ETH does not rollover to the next epoch. It does not accumulate. It is available to be called, by special function, in a certain epoch. Then it’s over, until the next epoch lock period.
  2. You can only call the special function 1x per epoch.
  3. Check the epoch period here.

We received a lot of feedback and requests about the autonomouys smart contract system on the network. We listened diligently to what our users were saying.

Overall the system performed well and certainly as expected.

We look forward to releasing more user friendly tools. This will ensure it is a simple to interact with the overall system as possible, for a non-technical user base.

  1. Someone needs to explain step by step how the process works. I have an account at myetherwallet.. I can view my vsl in that account. ?

      1. does not work – ERROR for site owner: Invalid domain for site key reCAPTCHA

        I also get an error
        Contract 0x51ffc1b089392a5bb65bf24eaf04d07d0e6f88b5
        Warning! Error encountered during contract execution [Bad jump destination]

        1. Ollie, the Captcha error we are aware of. It will be fixed shortly.
          And certainly well before the next lock period for withdrawing profits.

          For all issues with betting, please contact our support desk. That is, got to and click the ‘Support’ tab to open a ticket.

          Having said that we also see the email. And you are not sending bets with enough GAS. You need to send bets with min. 180000 GAS.

  2. What happens to the ETH which are not withdraw in the lock period?… i didnt withdraw them since i was in vacation. The fact that profits do not accumulate is a big drawback of the system in my opinion. Donyou have plan to fix that?

    1. It’s a design feature, engineering decision and implementation that maximises security.

      If there is a more secure way to do that, then we will implement it.

      But we absolutely always favour security above all else.

  3. I have some vsl from the ico. Was there a distribution of profits in the previous unlock ?, because I did not receive any, or did not know how to do what was necessary to receive it. Tomorrow there is another unlock, I hope to know how to do it well.

      1. Thank you for your attention
        I complete all the steps and responds that I have insufficient funds.
        You will know what I do wrong?
        Thanks a lot

  4. Ok, so I missed the first lock period. So, I was watching closely for this new one today. I go to check my balance, put in my ether addy, i\’m not a robot, and calculate profit. Nothing. 0 VSL? I go to myetherwallet and follow the walkthrough to go ahead and attempt it anyways. I have about 1450 VSL… so that\’s not enough to earn even 1 wei? And if it doesn\’t accumulate from missed locks, and I hold that amount of VSL only, then how will I eventually earn enough without the accumulation? Wait for your site to earn more fees so that my % is more than 1 wei? Or simply purchase more VSL? I dunno. This just seems weird.

    Am I missing something here?

    1. Hi, I was wondering if you ever figured the issue out? I was wondering how profitable the distribution was, like ROI for the amount of VSL you locked up? I missed out on the last distribution rounds but don\’t know whether to sell my tokens because of the difficulty in recieving rewards or if it is worth the hassle…

      1. That is for your to decide. We have already implemented the most secure, state-of-the-art system, given what Ethereum can do, today.

        We really don’t consider the process that difficult. You just follow these simple steps 1x per month. You have 5 days each month to do it:

        Right now there is no secure way to automatically do this. If, in future, there is a satisfactory and secure way to do that we would implement it.


    1. OK, but also please note that the cobtract is in ‘unlock’ period now. You can see that here:

      You can only withdraw from the profit container during ‘lock’ periods.

  5. How many dividend payouts have there been? The first in January? Is it every month, week? Very unclear.

    If an investor does not withdraw the dividend during a five day lock in period he/she has lost the dividend?

    What happens to the unclaimed dividends?

    1. It is every month. Unclaimed stays in the pool. Then distributed to everyone evenly for next period. You must withdraw every lock period.

      You can keep updated here:
      It counts down to the ‘Lock’ period. When it says it is in a Lock period, that’s the time to withdraw.


      1. Vslice: \\\”It is every month.\\\”
        Same date each month?

        How can we track this without visiting the website all the time? RSS feed?

        Can you list all past and future lockin dates?
