I'm curious if you've ever looked at wagerr?

Subject 59927

It's a small cap crypto project which seems like it could be a home run if they can deliver what they've promised - decentralize person to person sports betting.

I like it because

- It has an easy to understand usage (sports betting. simple)
- It exists entirely inside the crypto world. It doesn't have to integrate with the real world (corporations, supply chains, banking, etc.). I like the lack of friction with the real world.
- It sounds fun. I think centralized sports betting services are huge in countries where they are legal (such as England). This sounds like the same thing, but lower commission and you will be able to bet from your PC or phone.

If Bitcoin and the blockchain makes sense as a person to person payment system, person to person sports betting probably makes equally important sense. Why not?

I would imagine the hardest part is getting the connection between the real world winner of the event (49ers beat the Eagles!) into the network via automation. What if the result is wrong in the transition from real world to the wagerr blockchain? Other than that, it seems pretty standard stuff for a blockchain app.

Anyways, there's a wagerr thread on SI if anybody is interested. Not much discussion because they don't have much news yet (still in pre-launch phase), but things should get rockin' fairly soon.
