If you are a fan of gambling, then our review of Pokersports is going to interest you a lot. Read more for details.
What Is PokerSports?
Pokersport describes itself as the “revolution of fantasy sports”, which is actually a very vague marketing term. In fact, this is a decentralized community based on the Ethereum blockchain technology which is focused on iGaming (a fancy term for gambling), eSports and fantasy sports. If you like any of these subjects, then you will most likely be at least interested in what Pokersports might have to offer.
How Does PokerSports Fantasy Sports & iGaming Work?
The company has developed options for people who are interested in gambling and sports with a greater focus on sports than necessarily traditional gambling like slot machines, traditional poker and things of the sort.
Pokersports features instant transfers instead of slow withdrawal processes, Ethereum blockchain technology, a platform that you can access from anywhere in the world and rake fees of 4%.
The company has created some very interesting games. The spotlight of the company is FantasyStud, which is a poker themed fantasy sports game, but they also have games like Bust (sports combined with blackjack) and Fantasy Legends (a role playing game card game with sports motifs). While FantasyStud is fully operational, Pokersports has not launched the other two in their final version yet.
Who Is Behind PokerSports?
This company was founded by a group of three people, all considerably young: Kyler Tolefree (CEO), Nick Brazzoni (COO) and Raymond Flores (CTO). The company also has many advisors. People like Jason Hung, which is the ICO advisor, Boris Otonicar (blockchain advisor) and George Han (cryptocurrency expert).
You can see that the core team of Pokersports is pretty much young although the advisors seem somewhat more experienced, which might make you feel more confident in the company.
