Security of Player Funds

Removal of Player Deposit Risk

Players fund their own personal digital wallets with Ether and send buy-ins to smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain which escrow tournament buy-ins and autonomously distribute payouts based on game outcomes allowing players to always have full custody over their funds. Payouts on Virtue Poker will happen in 30 seconds or less.

Tamper Proof Gaming

Shuffling and Encrypting the Deck

All gameplay happens using off-chain using a secure implementation of mental poker.

Why We Built This

Using the Ethereum blockchain and smart contracts to build a decentralized poker platform, Virtue Poker has trust and transparency built in.

Centralised

Players must trust a centralized service with their valuable information and game logic.

Decentralised

A blockchain-based decentralized poker platform puts players in control in a framework they can trust.

Features

Security Of Player Funds

Players do not deposit money into a centralized Virtue Poker system. Instead, players fund their personal digital wallets and enter games with these funds.

Tamper Proof Gaming

All gameplay happens using off-chain using a secure implementation of mental poker.

Instant Payouts

All payouts happen in less than 60 seconds and are automatically sent back to a player’s digital wallet when they leave a table.

Guaranteed Tournaments

Competitors spend money on expensive sponsorships on poker stars and athletes, we feel like our players would prefer if we spent that money on them instead, so we put our marketing resources into guaranteed tournaments.
