EOSBet, a popular decentralized gambling application, announced on Friday that it secured accreditation from Curacao, which in itself is one of the world’s oldest online gambling regulators. Curacao is one of the handful of companies to be granted a Master Gambling License from the State’s Ministry of Justice, reported Cryptovest. This license provided to Curacao enables it to sub-license other gambling platforms.

EOSBet smart casino is an on-chain gambling decentralized app made to tackle problems like lack of trust and transparency, costly fees and, high-house advantages on the centralized online gambling platforms. On EOS’ platform, players gamble EOS in baccarat game or dice-throwing game and the platforms which enable players immediate transaction times, zero fees and almost zero latency fees. The platform has a betting volume of over $5 million, making it the top-rated dApp on the EOS network, according to the report.

The platform claims to be the first community-driven casino as it allows holders of their native bet token to get immediate rewards in EOS from the platform’s profit. The payments are distributed proportionally, depending on the number of bet tokens possessed by each holder. EOSBet paid a total of $1 million to the token holders within 2 months of going live.

EOSBet manager Frej said:

“We’ve worked relentlessly to make this license succeed and we will continue to strive to be the standard for smart casinos”.

The platform, after running on beta mode for the past three months, in order to expand their team, worked towards acquiring the license. The license provided by Curacao enables to the platform to operate all forms of interactive gambling. Along with this, the platform has announced a new game and a complete redesigning of the website is underway.

Bitcoin’s [BTC] security is 100 times more than that of Bitcoin Cash’s [BCH], says Litecoin creator

Charlie Lee, Creator of Litecoin [LTC] and Managing Director of Litecoin Foundation, spoke about projects that allocate mining rewards to developers, in an interview with Laura Shin for Unchained Podcast. He also opined about whether Litecoin’s vision still remained the same or not.

On projects that allocate a percentage of the block reward to developers, Lee stated that it was “okay” as long as the project developers were transparent on this subject, adding that in some cases, this was “needed”. He further stated that it was hard to find developers for Litecoin since, there were not enough funds to pay these developers.

[…] we work on raising money and using money to pay for developers but unlike ICOs or other projects we just don’t have millions sitting from selling our ICO tokens to fund these developers. So, yeah I think projects that do that it’s kind of needed […]”

However, Lee stated that for cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Litecoin that really want to become decentralized money, there cannot be any centralized actions like using mining rewards to pay developers.

This was followed by Lee speaking about Litecoin’s vision and the coin’s use case. On this, Lee stated that the current vision was still “very similar” to the old one, seeing Litecoin as a complement to Bitcoin. He added that Litecoin’s raison d’être was not to replace Bitcoin, unlike some other coins that claim to be the better version of Bitcoin.

“[…] I think it’s trade-off. So, a lot of people don’t talk about the trade-offs people talk about how they have fees are cheaper […] people in support of Bitcoin Cash constantly talk about how Bitcoin Cash transaction fees are like a hundredth of that of Bitcoin but, you get what you pay for right […]”

He further added that Bitcoin’s “security was more than hundred times” that of Bitcoin Cash, irrespective of the hash rate being more or not. Lee remarked that one cannot “attack Bitcoin,” whereas Bitcoin Cash could be “eas[ily] be attacked,” adding that this factor was very important and also the reason for cheaper fees.

“[…] same for Litecoin alright. Litecoin is cheaper and the security is less than Bitcoin […] so people who actually move lots of money they would want to use Bitcoin and I think that’s fine like Litecoin can compliment Bitcoin perfectly fine […]”

Lee stated that this was the reason he agreed with Lightning Network, arguing that it was good for both Bitcoin and Litecoin. He stated that Lightning not only helps them scale, but also enables cross-chain atomic swaps, allowing people to swap two different coins instantly and easily in a decentralized manner.
