Development Update July 2017
vDice Game 50,000+ Bets Processed
This development update July celebrates that the main dice games passed 50,000 bets on the Ethereum main-net. This is a huge milestone.
In terms of the main Dice game, there has been healthy growth in betting in 2017. While it took a 1 year + to pass 50,000 bets, on current projections the game will hit 100,000+ much sooner. On current estimates, within half that time!
The 3rd party audit of Slot Code by New Alchemy revealed one medium level issue with the Smart Contract code. The developers of that game have fixed that and also integrated a few optimizations that were suggested.
We are informed that the developers of vSlots expect to receive the all-clear from the code auditors, on the final iteration of the game code, shortly.
In terms of the front-end code, node script is now done and we are now just finishing the interface.
We underestimated how long Web3 integration would take. But not by too much and we are almost there. Web3 documentation is still a little thing on the ground. But front-end is 75% done.
The User Experience
A lot of new people have come to Ethereum lately that are less technical. This has been revealed in the quantity and quality of support tickets we are receiving lately.
So the idea here, as always, is to provide a web-based UX/UI for vSlots, as it will be deployed on the Ethereum main-net. We are hoping to make it the first game in the space where no real technical knowledge is required to play. To that end, we are abstracting away the technical parts with the most intuitive UI and we believe we’ve done a good job of that, given where the technology is at currently.
