Replace gold with cryptocurrency Byteball

Postby yestur » Tue Mar 13, 2018 3:12 pm

Hi,
I had an Idea that game gold could be replaced with cryptocurrency.
Online players on entry would deposit some Byteball Bytes under smart contract.
Contract unlocks on response to server oracle and releases funds to the winner.

Byteball is written in js so should even easier to integrate it

What do you think ? Are there any Devs interested in doing this ? I have a day job so probably wont have enough time to do it.

Just wanted to share the idea so it can benefit someone

https://byteball.org for details

I'm happy to sponsor this a little because Im a dev and fan of this Civ and Bytaball projects ;)

The only thing worse than a bot is a human bot. Same brains and ethics, only the latter is able to pass through bot filter.

what do you mean ? You don't have to use bots to implement this. You can use headless wallet etc look at Byteball github

It doesn have to reflect gold in 1:1 ratio, I would rather avoid creating a token for that. It would be something like putting coins into a house at the beginning, then release according to final treasury of player at the end of the game.

That was just quick and simplest idea of integration. I don't know how mechanics of gold work in the FreeCiv.

If you have better ideas of integration I'm open for suggestions
