Is Binary Options Gambling? - Brokers Scam

Crypto Became a Gambler’s Paradise?

Source https://news.bitcoin.com/how-crypto-became-a-gamblers-paradise/
Comparing cryptocurrency trading to gambling is like comparing crypto tribalism to religion: the analogy is correct, but it’s also tired. What bears emphasizing, then, isn’t that crypto trading and crypto gambling are often indistinguishable, but the extent to which the two disciplines permeate the cryptosphere. From the most popular dapps to the leading hacks, everything of interest within the space can be interpreted as a form of gambling. It’s the reason why crypto is so fascinating and so addictive.

The Whole World Is a Game

The gamification of everything is the endgame of life itself. Soon it will be impossible to go for a jog without receiving a high score or being showered in shitcoins for your efforts. Competition is what drives us as humans. The desire to be better than one’s fellow man or woman is the reason we’re here today on the internet, and not still living in mud huts. Combining money, mathematical puzzles, economics and copious amounts of game theory, crypto is a heady concoction of all the things that spur a man to get out of bed in the morning and conquer the world.
And the use of “man,” on this occasion is deliberate. There are many reasons why crypto has been historically male-dominated, some of which are too contentious or tangential to delve into here. This much, however, needs said: men are greater risk takers in life. It’s why their fortunes are more likely to fall in the extremes than in the mean: atop the mountain or in the gutter, but rarely in between. It’s also why crypto’s greatest success story so far has been letting men do what they were gonna do anyway: gamble, both literally and loosely, while striving to stack more sats than their peers.

Gambling on a Future for Dapps

What is altcoin trading if not a game to end up with more BTC than you started out with? Whether you get there through charting ichimoku clouds or rolling high-low in a crypto casino seems immaterial. To understand the extent to which gambling dominates the cryptosphere, there’s only one place to start – the dapp store. Hit up your favorite dapp tracker (Dappradar or State of the Dapps are probably best) and take a look at the most popular decentralized applications on each chain.

Top 10 dapps according to Dappradar

State of the Dapps notes six of the dapps in its top 10 as being gambling. Dappradar, which records more crypto networks, including Tron, also has six gambling applications in its top 10. Leading the pack is Wink, the betting platform that uses the same principles as Bitcoin.com’s Cashgames: instant wins, micropayments, and provably fair gambling. Wink can be accessed as a conventional casino or on a game by game (i.e dapp by dapp) basis. In most respects, Wink is indistinguishable from any other crypto casino, with the primary difference being the way in which it’s accessed.
Online casinos can be banned and geo-restricted, as often occurs at national level. Dapps, while not the censorship-resistant paradise their proponents would have them, are a lot harder to block. It’s no surprise that many of the most popular gambling dapps have struck gold in Asia, where download links are shared in Wechat groups and where wagering on life is a way of life for many.

Trading or Wagering?

Not all gambling dapps can be neatly filed into the gambling category. How to interpret Bulls vs Bears for example? Like many of the leading dapps on Tron and EOS, it’s dubbed as gaming, rather than gambling, and as a skill-based endeavor, that’s technically correct. Players don’t compete against the house, and since the game calls for predicting crypto market trends, there’s skill involved. With talk of a “dynamic wagering environment” and large jackpots, though, it’s clear who the dapp’s target demographic is. Like many new dapps trying to bootstrap, Bulls vs Bears relies on giveaways (in this case TRX tokens for signing up) as a means of getting bodies through the door, or rather users on the protocol.
In condensing the act of trading into basic binary options – high/low, bull/bear, the dapp bestows the same duality that bifurcates so many other domains in life, from U.S. politics to dead rappers. Are you a bull or bear? Republican or Democrat? Biggie or Tupac fan? Somewhere out there is a dapp for that, where you can wager on binary options for all the things you love and hate.
Further blurring the lines between what constitutes gambling and what’s trading is Guesser. Built on Augur, it’s technically a prediction market that uses crowdsourced wisdom to determine probable outcomes. In reality though, it’s a betting dapp, and a very neat one at that. Guesser appears to have given up all pretences of operating a prediction market, inviting users to “Bet up to” a certain amount on each market.

There’s More Than One Way to Beat a Dapp

While crypto users have been filling Telegram and Wechat groups with gambling dapp strategies, a handful of more enterprising individuals have been working on their own means of beating the system. In crypto, as in everything else, there’s always a way to fast track your way to riches, provided you don’t mind breaking a few rules along the way.
Eosplay usage briefly dropped to zero after an attacker found a way to drain the pool of EOS.
Eosplay is the sixth most popular gambling dapp on EOS. For a short while, over the weekend, it was also the most profitable for whoever rented a bunch of resources and used them to clean out 30,000 EOS from the contract. Call it genius, cheating or a bit of both, it was an effective case study in unorthodox ways to beat the house.
People can moan about the rough edges around defi protocols, the unreadability of bitcoin addresses, and the complexity of wallet recovery, but not everything in crypto is quite so wonky. Gambling has been a mainstay since the beginning of Bitcoin, and developers have gotten extremely efficient at it. If crypto builders can approach other ecosystem verticals with the same gusto with which players and devs have approached gambling dapps, mainstream adoption is just a UX breakthrough away. Where there’s a will to innovate, there’s a way, and when there’s money wagering on it, no problem is too big to solve.
From casinos to bitcoin, formerly fringe interests have now been normalized, thanks to those willing to put a punt on them when no one else would. Where gamblers lead, the mainstream tends to follow.
Do you think gambling is one of the best use cases for crypto to date? Let us know in the comments section below.

Decentralized applications on TERA platform

Decentralized applications on TERA platform

Implementation of blockchain technologies provided a solution that allows to refuse of use of central servers for storing the database and to entrust them to a distributed registry. For the first time it was implemented through the example of digital currency – Bitcoin. Then enthusiastic programmers, who focused their attention on the opened opportunities, went further. They began to implement their ideas and supply new tools, laying the foundation for the digital system of the future. In such a way, smart contracts and decentralized applications appeared, presented to the user as software products for wide variety of spheres: business, entertainment, communication… Virtual blockchain began to obtain visual outlines.

https://preview.redd.it/utjl7ervb9u21.jpg?width=1080&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=46f4ce45dbf1a3f3d84be8b027ebf10fb3374c30

Leaders in creation DApps

Ethereum became the first blockchain project that allows the creation of smart contracts and DApps.
But programmers faced difficulty - low transaction speed, which was limited to 20 tps. In 2017, EOS and TRON acted as projects that found a solution. They collected millions with the help of ICO and drove by roadmap.
On the one hand, indeed, the shown speed was significantly different and gave the opportunity to develop DApps (TRON - 1200 tps, EOS - 4000 tps). Although Ethereum took the lead in the number of created in its blockchain applications, taking a head start in two years, the competitors who appeared on the market began to drain-away developers to their platforms. For April 2019 EOS ranks the first in the number of unique users (171k) and transaction volume ($ 3 bln), TRON - the second (71k, 600 mln). This is despite the fact that more DApps allocated in Ethereum. The only thing is that transaction rate both TRON and EOS was obtained detriment of decentralization. Both projects work on the PoS consensus algorithm, and this is already a reason not to consider them decentralized. As for Ethereum, its blockchain with each fork also gradually moves towards the final transition to the PoS consensus. While the main developers justify their actions by that the PoW algorithm has already outlived itself and the distributed registry running on such a consensus cannot provide the characteristics, necessary for full-fledged DApps functionality.
That is not so!

Attractive advantage of TERA

In 2018 the TERA Foundation blockchain project was launched, which proved that it is too early to throw PoW into the past, if only because it copes brilliantly with security issues.
The author of TERA Yuri Ivanov by combining the sha3 and secp256k1 encryption algorithms in cryptography achieved excellent results, guaranteeing 1,000 transactions per second. And the architecture features of the TERA blockchain have higher capabilities - 5,000 tps. Moreover, this speed is not the limit, but without a network load test it’s early to talk about other numbers for the moment.
Anyway, we already see that currently provided speed allow the creators of DApps to embody their ideas. Language of smart contracts JavaScript facilitates the challenge. Some developers together with the creator of TERA did not waste time and for a relatively short time period of the platform’s existence placed into its space a number of really decentralized applications, that are now available to all wallet owners.

What DApps are on the TERA platform

So, what is currently available for use to members of the TERA community?

https://preview.redd.it/bf7o1dk6c9u21.jpg?width=1080&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=3df9247705396f59b08155462029f65c5a1303b0
TERA decentralized exchange and a multi-currency wallet
The first decentralized platform for the cryptocurrency exchange is already in operation.
To be honest, for the present is only in one, but the most important direction - TERA / BTC.
Meaning that those who wish to purchase a coin can use the sellers' offers, placed on the platform, without turning to other exchanges where TERA has already passed listing.

https://preview.redd.it/69nclntcc9u21.jpg?width=1080&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=354b5175186e5e684146cde489a02db0824a823f
Upon that, thanks to the latest update you can create a BTC account that will be bound to the main one. For sure increasing the number of cryptocurrencies for both trade and storage will increase the attractiveness. However, this is just a question of time and monitoring with what time intervals updates are released there is a confidence that it will not take long to wait. Moreover, to the topic of wallets and coins it pays to add that TERA allows you to issue your own tokens.

Services for business
Special attention is given to decentralized applications that help to conduct business activities and other dealings. For example, DApp "Promise" is available. By activating a smart contract the seller fixes his obligations with a bounded frozen account without money. The buyer studies the conditions and if they are suitable for him, he transfers the specified amount. Then goods are forwarded, or services are being provided. When deal is fulfilled, the buyer defrosts the seller’s account with the payment received. In case of refusal, the case is regarded by the escrow - the creator of the smart contract.

There is a DApp "Frozen", where you can freeze funds on your own account until the specified date or until a specific block is generated.
A great way to avoid money wasting and to hodl some coins for a desired period.
Other applications are in the planning stage, that will facilitate business processes conducting on the blockchain directly between the parties, without intermediaries.

Gambling
Gambling admirers comprise a third of decentralized applications users. Therefore, among the DApps hosted on the TERA blockchain, entertainment from this area began to appear. There are a double bet game, a lottery and a one-armed bandit (slot machine). The slot machine evokes associations with the very first mechanical gambling machine of 1905.
It also has 3 drums and one pay line. But the functionality allows you to win the bonus round with 5 free spins and increased prize payout. Yet truth be told, you should be careful.
Personally, I’ve got the combination giving the jackpot x 200 bets, but as I later noticed the winning did not arrive in the account. Therefore, record the evidence of such things just to be on the safe side.

https://preview.redd.it/whioug4qc9u21.jpg?width=467&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=b3f571ea0512678817bb7d31059fffcd816729a7
By the way, after the post about these errors in Discord (https://discordapp.com/invite/CvwrbeG), the reply followed immediately. The reason was that for the convenience of the player the slot does not wait for 8 seconds, which are necessary for the blockchain to confirm the block, but returns results earlier. But if there is a case of a lost block, an error occurs, where diamonds symbols are shown on the drum.
It was reported about the immediate update of the client version with the corrected drawbacks of previous one.

Online shop
The platform operates an online shop with toys on the game Minecraft subject. For TERA coins you can get soft toys, souvenirs and other goods with the next day delivery in Moscow and within 5 days to other cities of the Russian Federation.
But it will be no difficulty for other salesmen to join and offer their product range. Creating an online store does not require much time, cost or special efforts. It will take several minutes between the decision to open the goods sales point on a decentralized TERA platform and fully realized project. It is enough to load feed with an assortment and prices. Moreover, all data is stored on the blockchain, which excludes needs for hosting.

https://preview.redd.it/crh2an11d9u21.jpg?width=1000&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=806c3d73766b9a212c1c3d15ed2d82d3cdb402a5
The buyer studies the product and if finds something interesting for himself, makes an order. A clear interface with a full functional basket is available to fulfill the order.
Payment is commission-free. The seller observes the process through the admin panel, which informs him about the state of affairs and reports the change of good statuses during all stages - from the moment of adding to the basket to delivery to the buyer.
The money paid for the goods is reserved on the buffer account at first and only after the buyer receives his order, the seller receive the amount of money to his account.

Other DApps
The first resources for communication appeared on the decentralized platform. This is a forum and dating chat.
Arcade games started to come in, like Floppy Birds. This game already was able to prove that for a poor little bird it’s so difficult to fly, even in the blockchain space!
Especially when the flight takes place in the neighborhood of a virtual industrial town, where there are more pipes than trees, and they grow right before our eyes (in the truest sense of the word!)

https://preview.redd.it/q071t2h8d9u21.jpg?width=1080&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=8727324d966753ee57c323bd57ace6c6f07d3c27
Once again, I would like to remark that all this is really decentralized, it works and TERA is waiting for new developers, those who want to distribute and monetize their software products free, and what is more, in the most popular programming language – JavaScript.

What else would be nice to see on TERA

Virtual soil of TERA is just beginning to put out shoots of the first planted digital seeds, and in the blockchain space there is enough space for the flight of imagination when creating DApps. I will give as an example just the first that comes to mind, as well as taken from the statements of members of the TERA community on Discordapp.com.
Thus, would be great to see:
- platform for trading binary options, for a start at least on the same pair of TERA / BTC;
- browser for work with DApps and recommendations for building applications;
- a service for voting on the blockchain would provide transparency into the system of election in any sphere (such a proposal was received at Eurovision-2019, why not create it on TERA);
- author's rights patenting services for works of art, inventions and other intellectual property;
- a full-fledged forum where comments would be saved and could not be deleted (the foundation of such an application has already been laid);
- chess, backgammon, bingo, durak and other classic games;
- more games! Strategies, shooter games, exploration games... Suggest to take a deeper look to the hits of the 80s and 90s. Could be found what to remember and transfer to the decentralized platform TERA;
- fully functional casino with a wide range of entertainment: 3-line and 5-line Slot games, roulette, blackjack, poker, bets and other services of gambling industry;
- and so on and so forth.
If such ideas do not come to developers’ mind, feel free to contact the author of this article and he will share his own in the field of gaming and gambling, and help with their realization with the creative approach!
In the long run, what we need for everyday life? Tools to make money and ways to spend it.
The unique features of TERA blockchain make it possible to place both in it.
Plus they will be independent of any central administration and free of censorship.
To inspire developers for actions, the Chinese TERA community announced a contest with a prize fund of 165,000 coins.

https://preview.redd.it/ksrxovbbd9u21.jpg?width=720&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=c2f16e877b7dac0cf2b4ef0bb249f98c0c6d0396
Those who are interested in placing their DApps on TERA will be helped by DApp Paper - https://docs.google.com/document/d/10yXAKxaU7YgrQnbdXu_L7WWovUoRtdJwo3tXXaGZGSQ/edit
And a couple of words to the developers: You can choose TRON platform, you can choose EOS or Ethereum. But what are your priorities? All these systems are in the hands of corporate owners, which leads away from decentralization. And those who want to get away from totalitarian control and give the fruits of their creativity complete freedom should consider the TERA platform.
The TERA Foundation website has a page with a special world map. It shows in real time how many full nodes support the blockchain operation- https://terafoundation.org/map.html. To be among the first means to participate in laying the foundation, that is able to withstand a powerful boost to the rapid development of future technologies. If there is no your city on the map, only a few minutes separates you from correcting it. Instructions for node installation will help to join the TERA community and make your contribution right now.
It can be found here: https://sourceforge.net/p/tera/code/ci/mastetree/README.md

https://preview.redd.it/zcq5ijbgd9u21.jpg?width=1246&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a3cdd4219a5904a89f5de59413d45d6769b07a54
Participation in the expansion of TERA encourages growth and development of the idea of freedom from central administration, which was stated when Bitcoin was launched.
These are not just fantasies or dreams, there are authoritative representatives of science who consider blockchains to be the basis for the economy of future, which will have no boundaries. And with the help of active participants full decentralization will come much faster. This development has no limits, since it is fueled by the independent striving, own free will and potential that is inherent in each of us.

Binary Options, Scam or Real?

Hi,
I've read several articles that claim that Binary Options are simply a way to gamble. And the companies that offer these products are just doing so to lure would be investors / traders into an online casino.
Forbes has a pretty clear opinion on the fact that it is simply gambling. The ultra short time frame and directional bets make a pretty strong argument for the fact that it is a form of Online Casino.
We all take risks in Trading. But those of us who are doing it correctly are taking advantage of miss-priced product and putting on a trade that ultimately dampens the market and ads liquidity in the process. These trades do neither.
I would like to hear Reddit's opinion on this. If I am wrong, I will allow people to post about Binary Options in /Trading.
