Betswap.gg launches public Testnet: Decentralized sports betting marketplace
The Betswap.gg team has announced the testnet launch of its decentralized betting exchange on Feb. 2, 2022. This launch coincides with an invite program for community members to preview the technology and help with the testing phase.
What is Betswap.gg?
Betswap.gg is the first truly multi-chain decentralized peer-to-peer betting sports exchange built on the Ethereum-polygon and other EMV-compatible blockchains, allowing users full transparency in making and taking bets on 1000’s of sporting and e-sporting events.
Betswap allows participants to be either a bettor or a bookmaker. Due to its decentralized nature and use of blockchain technology, many of the fees associated with sports betting are greatly reduced and the process is that much more transparent.
Unlike traditional sports betting where bets are placed against the house, at Betswap, it’s a peer-to-peer system, where users bet against each other, and the exchange acts as an intermediary marketplace for their bets.
Betswap.gg offers users the opportunity to take part in back-and-lay betting; to act as bettor or bookie.
The platform provides multi-chain integration as well as truly decentralized governance through a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO).
The BSGG token provides holders with a wide variety of functionality, including governance, staking, reduced fees, and much more.
BSGG is an ERC-20 token and acts as the centerpiece of the sports betting platform. As a multi-chain token, BSGG resides on the Ethereum, Fantom and Avalanche blockchains.
Betswap’s testnet launch allows interested individuals to use the platform using test USDT’s that have no monetary value, and provide feedback to the team.
The testnet version 1.0 will initially have limited capability and will feature three key sports: football, basketball and cricket. Each week, additional sports like NFL, eSports, tennis, etc.. and additional features such as multi-betting, order book, automated liquidity bookie pool, amongst others will be added to the platform to maintain a smooth rollout. Once the mainnet version is released, the Betswap team plans on making the platform code open-source and offering b2b integration with multiple providers.
The Betswap team has built and improved on their blockchain platform and will be granted access to their social channel followers starting Wednesday, February 2nd 22:22 Eastern time (10.22 pm Eastern Time). The team is actively looking to receive feedback to continuously improve the platform.
Feedback provided by community members brings valuable insight and may be incorporated into the final product. Once the platform has been fine-tuned, Betswap.gg will officially launch on the mainnet and allow users to bet using cryptocurrency.
