First Lock Period Review

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 vDice platform and vSlice (VSL) token work via interacting Ethereum Smart Contracts.

Lock Period Review 1

There are the Game Smart Contracts. You can see the addresses at the vDice site. These feed profits through to a single Smart Contract, called the ProfitContainer.

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

All future games will also feed profits through to the same ProfitContainer.

The ProfitContainer Smart Contract proved itself. Holders of VSL were able to withdraw their profits successfully.

There was a small hiccup. The UI notification for the ProfitContainer was slightly out of sync with the actual Smart Contract. So users were notified that the lock period was active, slightly before withdrawals were actually possible.

This has been rectified. Though there are 5 days in which to withdraw profits. So it was not a major issue.

Lock Period Review 2

Important Notes

A couple of important things to remember:

  1. Profits do not rollover to the next epoch. They do not accumulate. They are available for you to withdraw in a certain epoch. Then it’s over, until the next epoch lock period.
  2. You can only withdraw profits 1x per epoch.
  3. Check the epoch period here.

We received a lot of feedback and requests about the ProfitContainer and the system. We listened diligently to what our users were saying.

As a result we are building a ProfitContainer calculator. This will allow users to calculate their profits in advance, prior to withdrawal, based on how many VSL they hold.

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.

The vDice Vision

vDice Vision for the Platform

We caused a stir recently. You can read our latest Medium post and development update to see why. There we outline the vDice vision.

In this post we set out the larger vision for vDice. That is, where we will be taking the brand and platform, long-term.

As we have always stated, the vDapps area is open to any and all good Ethereum (ETH) betting Dapps.

vDice vision

Anyone is free to submit their Dapps. If they are good and secure, we will support them. Everyone wins in this situation.

This includes any Dapps that are standard casino-style games, implemented as an Ethereum (ETH) Smart Contract.

However, this is not what our own developers will be focusing their energies. Instead, vDice will be looking to develop unique implementations.

We have an eye on gaps in the broader gambling market. Specifically, we seek places where betting is being done, in a technologically primitive way.

Where such gaps exist we will ask 2 simple questions; can this process really benefit from a blockchain (from a user perspective) and, if so, how?

vDice vision

Where the answer is yes, and the benefit is real for a non-technical user, we will build an implementation.

It is our sincere belief that this is the only way to create millions of dollars of value for a platform like vDice. Ultimately, the user needs to benefit in a real and obvious way. This benefit does not come from decentralisation for its own sake.

Submit Your Dapps

If anyone has a Dapp idea or implementation feel free to contact us.

Obviously implementations are preferred. But we can also consider collaboration to build your idea, if it’s good. Just email: [email protected]

 



vSlice Web Wallet is Live

vSlice Web Wallet is Live

Version 1.0 of the vSlice web wallet is now live at token.vdice.io

This allows vSlice holders to easily and securely hold, send and receive vSlice tokens.

vSlice Web Wallet Logo

Full functionality includes:

  • Receive vSlice.
  • Send vSlice.
  • Updated List of Places to Buy & Sell vSlice.
  • Check Lock / Unlock Periods.
  • View Your vSlice Tx Info

Features to be added:

  • Profit Calling Function

How vSlice Token Works?

Profits from ALL vDice games are accumulated at a special Smart Contract called the ‘ProfitContainer’ Smart Contract.

For 25-days of the month (known as the ‘Unlocked Period’) profits accumulate. Then, during the ‘Lock Period’ (about 5 days of the month) vSlice tokens holders can withdraw their profits from the ‘ProfitContainer’ smart contract.

To check if we are in a ‘Lock’ or ‘Unlock’ period simply click ‘Check Lock Period‘ at the vSlice Web Wallet.

To withdraw your profits during the ‘Lock Period’ we are adding a simple point and click interface to the web wallet. This feature is scheduled for release in early January.

vSlice Web Wallet 1

‘ProfitContainer’ Smart Contract Update

The ‘ProfitContainer’ Smart Contract is a single smart contract that collects profits from ALL vDice games.

It is from this Smart Contract that vSlice token holders draw their share of profits, each ‘Lock Period’.

This has not been released yet. It is still being tested. It will be released in early January. Once it is released profits will start accumulating. Then you can draw them our each ‘Lock Period’.

vSlice Web Wallet 2

How Are Profits Distributed?

vSlice token holders get a share of profits from ALL vDice games.

There are 33,390,496.0333756 VSL Tokens. Say a token holder owns 100,000 tokens. They have 0.299% ownership.

Now say, for example, at the start of the ‘Lock Period’ there 1,000 ETH in profit stored in the ‘ProfitContainer’ smart contract. Then 0.299% of that goes to the token holder. So, 0.299% x 1,000 ETH = 2.99 ETH.

vDice ICO is Complete

vDice ICO is Complete

The vDice ICO is complete and issuance of the vSlice token is now over.

Thanks for the support everyone. We are truly humbled by everyone’s belief in the platform and the team.

Now the hard work begins.

To update, these are the goals to hit before end-of-year:

  • Token Update
  • Social Media
  • Designs
  • Exchanges
  • Web Wallet
  • The Game, Platform & Further Updates
  • Token Update

The object of the ICO was the token called vSlice (VSL). The website for the token itself is here.

The token was issued by the ICO Smart Contract, as a function of ETH sent to it, in a certain ratio.

This has lead to a total of 33,390,496.033375600026660590 vSlice tokens coming into existence.

This is the total supply of vSlice. Now that the issuance is over there will never be any more vSlice tokens. This is the total supply.

Tokens are locked for the last 5 days of the epoch. So it’s locked for another 2 days. And then the lock will turn off, when someone tries trading in ~3 days.

Our testing showed the same thing, that it would be locked for an additional 2 days, after the sale ends, just with the way weeks and days was used for the ICO length and epoch length.

 

vDice ICO is Complete VSL logo

 

  • Social Media

Please make sure to follow us on social media, to keep up to date with everything. We also recommend you join our Slack channel.

While we are active on all social media channels listed, Slack is the best way to interact with the vDice team, going forward.

vDice ICO is Complete social

 

  • Designs

Below is a sneak-preview at our new vDice design presence.

vDice ICO is Complete design

 

  • Exchanges

So we are furthest along with negotiations for listing at the following exchanges;

  1. BTC100 (China)
  2. Yobit (Russia)
  3. Bter (China)
  4. Bitlish (UK)
  5. Etherdelta (Open Source)
  6. Poloniex (US)
  7. Liqui (Ukraine)

We’ll be gradually added to these exchanges over the coming days. And we’ll be sure to let everyone know when trading opens on each one, in advance.

  • Web Wallet

We are working with the team from Ethplorer on the vSlice web wallet.

It will provide this basic functionality to start:

  1. Send / Receive vSlice.
  2. View Tx Details.
  3. Redeem Profits.

We are fixing parser and viewer to support vSlice token in Ethplorer. Also, we’re working on the API which will work on the vSlice web wallet (based on myetherwallet technology).

vDice ICO is Complete ethplorer

  • The Game, Platform & Further Updates

The new betting contract game code is live. We are gradually adding more and more betting contracts (various % chance parameters) these coming days.

Also, in line with the longer-term vision for the platform, we are taking betting game ideas and, ideally, good implementations of them in solidity.

 



什么是区块链ICO?为什么区块链ICO很重要?

什么是区块链ICO?为什么区块链ICO很重要?

[http://www.econotimes.com/What-is-a-Blockchain-ICO-and-Why-It-Matters-433179]

以太坊是区块链技术的深化发展

比特币于2013年获得了大量的关注, 随着比特币的普及, 一种普遍观点开始显现出来: 比特币, 这种新兴技术固然非常重要, 但是重要在哪里? 人们还不知道.

一些开始了进一步的思考, 有没有其它途径提高这种技术的应用水平呢?

然而这种思潮遇到了挫折, 比特币是否能够支持应用, 人们还不得而知, 至少, 当时还没有出现类似的应用.

科技发展十分迅速, 有一些也得到了应用, 后来, 一个19岁的神童 – Vitalik Buterin 决定开辟自己的道路.

Buterin建立起一个类似比特币的系统(区块链系统), 带有完全可编程化的语言, 只要你想象得出的, 就能在该系统上建立起来.

在以太坊上面, 开发者可以设计开发去中心化的应用程序, 以太坊自此, 可谓是”世界性计算机”或者说是”云端上的php”.

区块链社区的乐观主义者开始支持这个项目, 两年后, 该系统网络的第一个迭代成功推出.

在那个时候, 曾有许多针对以太坊的恶意攻击, 试图抹灭这一项目, 但幸运的是这些并没有获得多少支持.

以太坊自身就是通过ICO产生的, 它开启了初始货币发行即ICO, 该区块链项目通过发行其稀缺的网络代币, 作为以太坊币(ETH)的交换, 也正是这些代币, 驱动着以太坊网络的运行.

我们可以看到其他诸如Golem, vDiceAugur都在ICO中得到数额巨大的资金, 它们都是这种新的范例.

以太坊已经成为这种融资模式的领先的平台, 在以太坊上, 这一切都变得十分简单.

这种模式迅速得到广泛的应用.

这是一种项目新的融资途径, 打个比方, 这是一个去中心化kickstarter.

但至此, 区块链社区对这种模式仍然褒贬不一, 无论怎样, 都无法消除这些不同的声音, 在这个系统和模式内, 仍有许多应用和机会.

这种模式允许地球上任何地方的任何个体参与到看好的项目中去, 此前, 只有金融家拥有这种权利.

自从比特币重新”想象”钱之后, 这似乎是我们看到的第一个实用的区块链技术的应用, 且其将迫使整个风险投资业去采用这种模式.

País de hábitat actual: Alemania

Pasatiempos favoritos: Leer, videojuegos.

Años en la industria: 4

Profesión/título de empleo: Administrador de vDice

Entrevista Jason Colby de vDice 1

Guía de apuestas vDice: Hola, antes que todo, cuéntanos un poco sobre tí mismo.

Jason Colby: Yo estuve en el equipo original que comenzó Ethereum en el 2014. Estuve con el proyecto del papel en blanco hasta después del lanzamiento de la network, más de dos años después. Fue una gran travesía. Estuve con el proyecto desde el 2014 hasta el 2016, basado en desarrollo HQ en berlin. Ya conocía bastante bien Bitcoin, pero fue mi momento e Ethereum el que me hizo darme cuenta del verdadero potencial de Blockchain.

BitcoinGG: ¿Cómo comenzó tu carrera en la industria?

JC: Estuve trabajando para un fundador de Ethereum, Anthony Di Orio. Un gran e inspirador empresario y pensador de Blockchain. Él me invitó a unirme al proyecto Ethereum. Así que fui a Miami para conocer a todos en la primera junta. Ethereum fue mi introducción a la industria.

Entrevista Jason Colby de vDice 2

BitcoinGG: ¿Cuál fue el catalizador para comenzar vDice.io?

JC: Había una brecha en el mercado. Yo y unos más lo vimos. Toda Blockchain necesita un juego de apuestas del estilo SatoshiDice. Es una pieza importante de infraestructura para cualquier Blockchain pública. A demás, siempre son enormemente exitosas. Luego de dos años, Ethereum seguía sin tener una, así que decidimos arreglar eso.

BitcoinGG: ¿Puedes decirnos tus pensamientos sobre la criptomoneda como una tecnología?

La criptomoneda y la tecnología Blockchain que la hace posible son tan importantes como el mismo internet. Analizando la historia, nada podría cambiar el mundo tan profundamente como la tecnología. Es la siguiente evoluciòn natural del internet.

BitcoinGG: Cuéntanos sobre tu marca, ¿Cuáles son los puntos fuertes y que los diferencia de la competencia en los juegos Bitcoin Dice?

JC: Somos la primera plataforma de apuestas completamente descentralizada. vDice.io no tiene ningún tipo de arquitectura de servidor propia. Es totalmente un nuevo paradigma. Todos los códigos y la lógica del juego están en la p2p, que es Ethereum. Es como pegar un juego en una “computadora mundial” gigante, que nunca se puede apagar. Las implicaciones son profundas, recién estamos comenzando.

Entrevista Jason Colby de vDice 3

BitcoinGG: ¿Qué obstáculos has tenido que superar para que tu marca se encuentre donde está hoy?

JC: Màs que nada, tecnológicos. Ethereum tiene tanta promesa, muchas oportunidades y posibilidades. Sin embargo, sigue siendo nuevo, asì que a veces puede ser difícil navegar y mantener. Eso se espera cuando estas en la vanguardia.

BitcoinGG: ¿Desde dónde operan? ¿Qué tan grande es tu equipo?

JC: Yo superviso la parte del contrato inteligente.

Cada miembro central dirige su propio equipo distribuído. Como es lo normal en este tipo de proyectos, tenemos contribuidores, colaboradores y subcontratistas que trabajan remotamente. Trabajan para sus propias empresas, o como freelance. Dependiendo de su àrea, reportan al dirigente específico de vDice.

Esta estructura nos ayuda a mantener el control y poder hacer las cosas de manera efectiva y eficiente. Muchos equipos distribuídos pueden ser no productivos. Al hacerlo de esta manera, podemos aprovechar los mejores recursos y personas. Desde donde sea que estén. Así también, asegurar resultados eficientes.

Acà es importante distinguir entre el lado del Software y el lado de las apuestas. El juego principal de vDice, el contrato inteligente influenciado por SatoshiDice, es completamente descentralizado. Cuando los juegos estan en la Network, no los controlamos nosotros. Son bits de Software cargados a la Network.

Así que la mayor parte del trabajo es desarrollo del software. Hay una entidad separada para esto. Las mejores jurisdicciones para el desarrollo de software de código abierto siguen bajo consideración. Para la parte de las apuestas, depende mucho de cuanto control ejecitamos, mientras otros desarrolladores construyen los juegos. Malta es la jurisdicción más probable del momento, por sus beneficios competitivos. Incluyendo tarifas de licencias competitivas.

Entrevista Jason Colby de vDice 4

BitcoinGG: ¿Còmo ves el futuro de Ether y las apuestas online?

JC: Lo vemos como un futuro claro y grande. No hay mejor herramienta para crear aplicaciones descentralizadas. Esto es importante para indutrias como las apuestas. Conducirá a una gran interrupción y un enorme cambio. Estaremos en el primer plano de esto.

Las apuestas blockchain solo se volverán más rápidas y efecientes. Luego verán todos los beneficios de la descentralización y ningún inconveniente.

BitcoinGG: ¿Cuál es tu punto de vista sobre los afiliados y cómo debería ser la relación?

JC: Son una parte muy importante en el crecimiento de cualquier plataforma. La relación debería ser contruída en el compartir y la generocidad que recompensa a los más capaces y talentosos.

BitcoinGG: si pudieras cambiar una cosa sobre Ether y las apuestas online. ¿Qué serìa?

JC: Avanzaría 12 meses rápido para que pudiéramos omitir las molestias del temprano crecimiento de la tecnología y llegar a las cosas verdaderamente divertidas. El trabajo sucio es lo importante. Lo hacemos todos los días, pero no podemos esperar para llegar a la verdadera diverción.

Entrevista Jason Colby de vDice 5

BitcoinGG: ¿Qué desarrollos ves sucediendo en el futuro para Ether y las apuestas online?

JC: Las posibilidades son muchas, es todavía muy temprano. La oportunidad es demasiado grande. Somos los primeros y los mejores. Lo que más imaginamos es mucha más competencia y juegos de muchos tipos, copiando nuestro modelo.

BitcoinGG: Describe tu marca en 10 palabras o menos.

JC: la perimera plataforma de apuestas completamente descentralizada.

BitcoinGG: ¿Qué opinas de La Guía de apuestas de Bitcoin? ¿Eres un fan?

JC: La guía de apuestas Bitcoin es claramente la publicación de industria principal de su tipo. Somos grandes fanáticos y estamos honrados de estar asociados con una marca tan grande.

BitcoinGG: Gracias y todo lo mejor para vDice.io.
