Intro :: What is Pokereum
Pokereum is an experimental contemporary community driven idea of using flat virtual decentralized autonomous organizations (DAO) to manage and develop a decentralized application (DAPP) that solves the mental poker problem using Ethereum smart contracts, Telehash mesh networking and a consensus network. The Poker app or DAPP basically lets you play a game of poker while ensuring random number generation and card shuffling are fair and transparent while reducing cost for poker players, reducing the possibilities of collusion and enabling cheap boundless payments and withdrawals using cryptocurrencies and smart contracts. Mechanisms to enable easy on-boarding of non crypto-currency users and stable value crypto currencies are detailed in the white paper.


Pokereum, the Ethereum - Telehash based provably fair decentralized poker DAO & DAPP project is intended to unite all coin communities and spur mass adoption of crypto currencies. The Dapp aspect is made possible through the use of smart contracts, a unique proof of stake/participation based jury consensus system and a mini blockchain weakly subjected to the Ethereum chain.

The Pokereum poker app is a DAPP(decentralized app) managed by the evolving Pokereum DAO (decentralized autonomous organization): a collective community people from all coin communities working together to achieve a common goal, voting on key issues and direction and development of the Pokereum DAPP, assisted by DAO delegates and autonomous agents.

Every decision is controlled by the community as a whole using tokens associated with the Pokereum DAO. Governance and other organizational activities will start out on the Nxt Voting enabled platform and gradually move to the Ethereum platform; a more robust system for automated enforceable decisions and distributed trust / security. All Pokereum DAPP smart contracts will be built on the Ethereum platform. For more information on how DAO’S might work see this recent article detailing a overall sample framework :: http://www.coindesk.com/succeed-as-dece ... anization/

      White Paper tl;dr Important Tidbits


      Parent chain and Security

      Parent chain is the ethereum chain on which the Pokereum “Ringed chain” relies. Information block information is stored and retrieved from the ethereum blockchain by new nodes joining the network

      Anti-collusion

      Multi-strategy anti-collusion mechanisms using:
      -Table stake group access randomization and challenge response jury pool authentication
      -deployment of low EV dispersible bots at low capacity


      Trustworthiness and Sybil Resilience

      Foundation for anti-collusion and a basis for the security of the jury pool consensus system. Using an account effective stake, account velocity and participation as a unit for determining eligibility to the jury consensus pools

      Provably fair random number and shuffling
      Multiple random inputs from jury pool nodes are sent to contracts and combined for an increased entropic seed to random number generation, generating multiple encrypted decks by adding and increasing nonces. Multitude of encrypted cards and keys can be generated and stored in decentralized storage until ready for use by the network.

      Multi-Networks Player Nodes:
      A pokereum node consist of an ethereum connected light client , ability to use the whisper protocol alongside decentralized storage and telehash enabled mesh RTC


      Jury Pools
      These are subsets of the network nodes selected to pools using random information passed to the Pokereum network by the system of ethereum contract in addition to their effective stake, account velocity/participation to perform important task on behalf of the Pokereum network as a whole



      Check Points
      Specific points in the Ethereum blockchain where new nodes can download old information to be sure they have the correct state of the network


      Epochs Ringed blockchain
      24 hour, 1 hour intervals. 1 hour is an epoch. Every 25th hour epoch is overwritten by a new 1st hour epoch. each current hour represents the current state of the network

      Player gamification point system
      Ten ranks represented by 10 badges. Each rank constitutes a certain number of points. Top ranking nodes are rewarded with rake backs, free private tables, free tournament entries and more as the network matures

      Pokereum DAO
      The Pokereum DAO is in charge of the management of the Pokereum DAPP.
      Members consists of individuals, establishments or autonomous agents. Every
      member of the DAO is incentivized to contribute to the long term success of the DAPP



      Crowdfunding date: TBD by DAO (DAO delegates needed)


      Most of all, no promises made, no outcome is certain. This is an experiment and you are welcome to be part of it, to help dictate its future. Thank you.

Does this even have anything to do with Namecoin?

Anyway, this doesn't belong in project direction, because it certainly has nothing to do with the direction of the Namecoin project.

Yes we are seeking collaboration to integrate namecoin as a payment method in the app

This still seems not appropriate for the project direction section. ;)

What would be interesting is a decentralised poker somehow based off Namecoin itself.

BTW, how do you actually implement the decentralisation? In particular, how can the players know about their cards but not their opponents' cards if every node validates the game state? (This is how I imagine your DAO-based poker.)

Decentralisation will be implemented with Ethereum smart contracts. We will use asymmetric encryption and traditional solutions presented in the mental poker space to ensure players will know cards depending on the phase of the game.

Thanks for your question! let me know if you have more.

Agree, where should it be moved to? One of the Marketplace forums? General discussion? Off topic?

Nothing to do with Namecoin. But nice idea
