This project is a Proof of Concept for the OST Kit alpha II challenge. We intent to use this API and Branded Token to implement a functional E-sports betting platform.
A better explanation can be found in the blog post describing the teams of this challenge:
Blocksmith is building a betting platform for e-sports. Its users will be able to bet on their favourite team to win e-sports events. Once an event is finished, Blocksmith will reward the users that bet on the wining team with all the tokens that were staked on that event. The rewards will be distributed according to the amount of tokens each user staked.
At the beginning we plan to keep the kinds of bets simple in order to test the system, after gaining more maturity we will try to bring to the e-sports world many features you already encounter during traditional sports events/seasons.
For the alpha version the implemented features are:
- Integration with the OST Kit API
- Authentication and Authorization into the betting platform
- Managing user wallets through the OST kit API
- Place several bets on the available games
- Automated winnings redistribution after a given game ends
- Historical data of the results of personal bets
- Transaction history
- Email notifications
- Help pages
Follow the network
One the great benefits of using OST and dedicated branded token for our platform is transparency. Behind the scenes, you value is always backed by the Ethereum network and form performance each token (GGT as well) run in an exclusive side-chain.
This way you can monitor yourself all the activity in the betting platform, for example you can use the official OST visualizer: OST View
