eSports Tournament and Wagering Platform – Peerplays solves many of the online gaming industry’s problems with a universally accessible tournament and wagering platform built to capitalize on the unmatched security, speed and flexibility of the BitShares blockchain. Unlike traditional online gaming websites, there is no “house” in Peerplays. Instead, everyone who uses the network is matched against other real players from all around the world.
The tournament management tools are programmed directly onto the blockchain, so any 3rd party tournament hosting site can easily integrate with Peerplays through the BitShares API. And since BitShares is also a worldwide payment processing network, every game publisher, advertiser, tournament host or vendor that plugs into Peerplays gains shared access to the entire network of users while still enjoying the freedom of operating their own independent websites.

The Peerplays network will support live action eSports games such as League of Legends, Counter-Strike, Dota 2, and Starcraft, as well as fully functional “on-chain” games such as poker and other casino card games. Similar to most online gaming platforms, Peerplays earns a profit from the “Rake” – a percentage of each jackpot which is deducted as a fee

Sure sounds like it uses BitShares?
What does Peerplays gets the rake mean? - are token holders part of that?

We had an old description posted on bunkerchainlabs.com. As mentioned in a previous post in this thread, we did originally attempt to design this to be built into Bitshares but had to later move it to it's own blockchain as we got further into it. It was back when we were designing it to be built into Bitshares earlier on that we posted this description on the site.

We have corrected it now to reflect the reality that Peerplays will NOT be built on top of the BitShares blockchain.

I apologies for the confusion.

Is there any way that peer plays could be shut down by regulators if gambling is deemed illegal in a user's area?

Would you say this is truly decentralized or more of a centralized solution that uses the blockchain?  If it is the latter, what advantage does doing this on a blockchain have vs just using a centralized server?

Those are some awesome questions and we are adding it to our list of questions to talk about Friday morning at the launch party!

Great idea, but is there any prototype/demo or  at least some schedule?
OP said there will be a testnet in next week?

No, we never said that. Perhaps confused with another project.

More details on schedules coming this week though.

Yes, and those details are being released over the coming week.

We are way past the idea stage on this.

Through this innovation we are going to have a robust sidechain implementation for graphene that can be applied to Bitshares. The Peerplays network is not going to operate it's own exchange. Instead it will simply connect out to Bitshares via sidechain to make it seamless for players to move in/out into whatever token they choose

That will give value to BTS for sure!

are you thinking to sharedrop on bts holders or ... play holders?

No, I am not thinking that at this time. We are bringing a lot of value to the Bitshares network in the liquidity Peerplays provides to the markets along with other technological improvements in the code that may be offered to the Bitshares community to use in the Bitshares blockchain. It's tremendous value by itself.

We are going to be most thankful to all of those who donate to this project because they believe in all benefits and innovations it will bring not just to Bitshares, but as a new blockchain in itself.  This is going to break into one of the most massive industries today that is growing faster than most can keep up with. The Peerplays blockchain will be perfectly positioned to provide value and grow along side Bitshares.

This looks promising. I'll chuck some coin in. You come across as somebody who is very level headed and capable. Looking forward to it!

did you alreday start to code it and who is coding it?

the idea is good, everyone expected something like this von PLAY, but they disapeard.

one more question you should better explain before you launch

compared to Lisk the sold 85% to asset holders and kept only 8% for coredevs etc.

if i understand you right you will pay from the 70% asset sold also the marketing campaigns and keeping 30% to the founders and pay
your time with the donated bitcoins? this are just my assumptions so i think it would be good to outline it more.

Yes the starting elements for the Peerplays blockchain are already being coded. I guess I should mention that when we get to testnet the project will be open sourced, just in case some need to hear that

Yes we are well aware of what Play did, or rather didn't do. I don't know much about the Lisk team either, or the extend of their experience to evaluate their capacity to consider all the he various elements that are necessary to build a successful operation. Also take into consideration that not all blockchains are equal in their requirements.

I would hope by now most here have learned that it takes more than just coders to make a successful network, which is why our team is comprised of experienced business operators, gaming industry insiders, marketers, content specialists, and coders. While the blockchain is at the heart of it all, it doesn't do much good without a head hands and feet to carry it forward so to speak.

As stated at the bottom of the OP, there is more info coming this week. We just wanted to have the Bitshares community have a chance to hear it here first.

I'm excited that you are anxious to want to get at all that information and you are concerned about it. Shows you care and want to see this succeed I think. :)
