The Geeks Decentralizing Online Gambling

Following is a transcript of an interview with Tristan Winters from vDice.

1. What are ‘vDice’ and ‘vSlice’?

vDice is the world’s first fully decentralized gambling platform.

Leveraging Ethereum’s next-generation blockchain protocol, smart contracts, and Oracle technology, we have created the premier version of what will be a revolution in online gambling.

vSlice is a token tied to the system. It is what you buy to get exposure to the success of vSlice, through the ICO.

2. OK, and what is an ICO?

It stands for Initial-Coin-Offering. It is a new kind of kickstarter, decentralized, using a blockchain.

If you believe in a project and its success you buy its tokens. Then those tokens allow you to share in the success of the project.

Oculus Rift raised $2.4 million on centralized platform; Kickstarter. It sold for billions to Facebook. None of the early kickstarter contributors benefited.With Blockchain that will never happen again.

3. Your ICO has already started. The news is everywhere, it has been very successful. News reports say it raised $1,000,000 in the first 90 mins?

That’s right. The ICO started on November 15th. It ends on December 15th.

We have raised $2,000,000 in the first 2 weeks!

It’s a lot of hard work, and long hours. But it’s worth it. Everyone really believes in us, our team and our vision.

People all over the world continue to support us. It’s very humbling.

4. vDice is one of the few, live, working Dapps on Ethereum, right?

That’s right. There is a lot of hype about Ethereum and decentralized applications. This technology has a bright future. But there are still very few commercial, working, applications.

vDice is one of them. This is a big reason why people want to support us. Everybody says so.

5. Is it too late for people to buy your tokens?

The ICO ends on December 15th. So it’s almost finished. Go here for more information: https://crowdsale.vdice.io

6. Where is most support coming from, which markets and countries?

China, Russia and South America – there is so much interest in the ICO. These are our key markets for sure.

7. Do you plan to add other games to the platform?

Definitely. Also, we’ll be opening up our platform to third party developers.

vDice will become like WordPress of decentralised gambling – a place where developers can build their own applications and host them on vDice. They can then leverage the strong brand and resources of vDice.
