Wagerr sports betting coin/chain is showing explosive growth in usage (bets). Strangely, the coin value is not appreciating, in fact it has been dropping lately. Hard to understand how wagerr has advanced far (great user interface betting wallet for PCs, Android lite wallet available for cell phones) and the price per coin is way below what it was when wagerr was just an idea.....

Speaking of wagerr - their online web based sports book is in beta test.

beta.wagerr.com

I think you can use that sportsbook to buy a few dollars of wagerr (3 cents each) and create a web based wallet, and voila, use the wagerr chain to bet on sports. I've never bought wagerr using the methods on that site, so hopefully they work, I don't really know!

There is a hard fork sometime in the next 24 hours. This will add some features (parlays bets, etc.) to the chain functionality. There are no bets available for a day or so while the fork goes through.

Wagerr also has an online sports book now which should make it easier to onboard bettors.

Hello,

There aren’t many people on this thread, so I’ll try to answer your question but I’m not really an expert.

I think your question is ….. current online betting platforms (using credit cards and fiat money) work fine, so why bother with a cryptocurrency specifically designed for sports betting rather than using one of the available online fiat based options?

1. In WGR you (the bettor) are anonymous.
2. There are no limits to the amount you can bet.
3. If you win regularly, you can not be kicked off the WGR platform.
4. WGR functions anywhere in the world that has internet access.
5. The novel advantage - by holding WGR (rather than by betting with it) you become the house. The WGR system is designed to increase the value of the WGR coin as adoption/usage grows. So holders of WGR earn the “house edge” that is normally held by the sports book. It’s sort of like a sports book which has the betting currency as shares of ownership of the sports book rather than fiat money.
6. Another novel advantage. WGR is designed to allow traditional sports books to offset unwanted risk. So….if a traditional sports book takes a very large bet on one side of a match - an uncomfortably large bet - the sports book can offset that risk by placing the same bet for itself on the WGR, and thereby reduce its exposure to a loss in that specific match.

That’s what comes to mind.

I think WGR doesn’t makes sense for someone currently satisfied with their current credit card based gaming / betting platform. But…it will makes sense for some people, and as adoption increases you may get additional advantage that the WGR coin may steadily increase in value.

I love that gambling is evolving with such significant steps. To be honest, at first, I was pretty skeptical about this industry, but now poker become my new hobby. I am happy that I've changed my mind and realized that there is nothing terrible in the gambling industry. So in case, someone is thinking of playing in an online casino, I will totally recommend you that. Trust me, this is the most entertaining online activity that you will find on the internet. But at the end of the day, this is just my opinion.
