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.
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.
Players must trust a centralized service with their valuable information and game logic.
A blockchain-based decentralized poker platform puts players in control in a framework they can trust.
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.
All payouts happen in less than 60 seconds and are automatically sent back to a player’s digital wallet when they leave a table.
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.
