Wagerr has released a new Wagerr Core 3.0 wallet intended to replace the Sep 2018 Core 2.0 wallet.

github.com

They say there will be a hard fork one week from today. The 3.0 wallet will access the post-fork chain.

After the fork is stable (a few days) they will release the Elektron wallet which contains the next generation betting functionality. They say betting will be active again (after being halted around March 2019) before August 9th.

While the betting function was turned off 1 WGR coin declined from 0.00002300 BTC to the current price of 0.00000575 BTC. Hopefully it will regain some of that lost value when betting starts.

Since BTC was about $3,600 when betting was turned off, and is ~$10,400 today, the price of one WGR in fiat only declined from ~10 cents to ~5 cents. If it can reach back to it's 0.00002300 BTC pre-halt price, it would be worth around 22 cents in fiat.

It's good to see some activity after months of quiet on the wagerr network.

Wagerr network is supposed to fork today to upgrade the server software to the new wagerr core 3.0 network.

Once they determine that the 3.0 core code / network is stable, they plan to release the new Electron betting wallet, and begin betting again. Sports betting has been suspended since about March.

WGR price has gone up about 50% this week relative to Bitcoin. When betting begins again I would expect another pop, then we'll see where it settles out.

When betting was halted in March, 1 WGR was about 0.00002200 Bitcoin, and on Bitcoin was about $4,000.

One WGR went down to as low as 0.00000450 BTC, and is now around 0.00000850 BTC.

Should be a good few weeks if they don't explode the network. And betting will resume in time for Premeire league soccer and soon after NFL. Nice timing....

wagerr released their new elektron betting wallet, and betting has resumed.

Anyone who wants to try it out, the Elektron wallet can be found here:

github.com

They've only got some European soccer matches up now, but as the wallet rolls out and gets the bugs worked out they are supposed to add more events. Hopefully things will be up and running well by NFL season.

Despite this, the WGR price trading at all time lows. Not sure why. The wallet promises to be a big improvement over the previous QT wallet, and there is interesting stuff on the horizon (in addition to a resumption of sports betting).

Anyone who tries this will like it, I'm pretty sure.

It's not that easy to get your hands of wagerr coins, and there is very little marketing, but the ability to bet on sports with a dedicated blockchain seems like a fantastic application for crypto. Bitcoin is person to person payments (without an intermediary), wagerr is heading toward becoming a person to person sports betting platform (without an intermediary).

Wagerr betting is ramping rapidly.

Last week 3.3 million WGR were bet on sports.

They've got European football, NFL, US college football and MMA / UFC matches available, and I think they said hockey starts next week.

The wallet seems to be working well

The price of wagerr isn't moving, but the potential of this thing is obvious to those of us that are using it regularly.

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!
