Herosphere, an online gaming and betting platform has integrated Dash into its platform. Its users can easily use their HERO coin to place bets on Dash.
“With our team based in Austria we set out to create a platform with the goal of bringing back fun & joy to betting by allowing people to challenge their friends, family and colleagues on various esports events. When at the same time the esports market started to rapidly grow, we decided to focus our resources on contests around Dota2, LoL and CS:GO on our own platform”
The platform boasts of 260,000 registered users, about 120,000 newsletter subscribers, and currently supports three games. The platform incentivises betting since “1 per cent of all pots played is given back to all token holders” and incentivises game creation by allocating creators their own reward. By utilising this strategy, they hope to eliminate bookmakers to allow more money to stay with users and players. This design was then enhanced with the Dash integration.
“Dash is a great cryptocurrency for payments with its anonymous, quick and secure transactions. Since those core values are the same ones for our users it was an obvious step to work together with Dash. Every user can swap his DASH token to HEROcoin directly on herosphere.gg within seconds. Moreover, as everybody is completely in possession and charge of his private key further trades can be handled at free discretion. We take pride in never having full control over users funds from the moment those funds arrive at the users wallet until they are sent elsewhere by the user – as one would expect from a truly decentralized provider.”
