How Will These 3 Blockchain Projects Change Online Poker

These three blockchain-enabled projects aim to use the benefits of distributed ledger technology in making the online poker experience more fun and secure.

The online poker community has faced problems aplenty these past few years.

Cheating has become rampant in the online tables. A number of incidents have reported online casino insiders infiltrating a game for their benefit. In addition, players employ bots for an easier way to earn chips in poker. These two examples undermine the integrity of every round involved.

Meanwhile, deposits and withdrawals of fiat currencies in an online casino take a lot of a player’s time, which could have been spent betting on more hands instead.

Thankfully, three blockchain projects have emerged to rid online poker of these problems and to change the industry for the better.

Virtue Poker Promises Tamper-Proof Sessions

Since traditional online poker games are hosted on a server, the operator has knowledge as to what cards a player holds. And this information, if fallen into the hands of insiders, would jeopardize the winning chance of an online poker player.

This would not be a problem anymore on Virtue Poker as this decentralized poker platform uses the peer-to-peer Mental Poker algorithm. This decentralized encryption method allows poker cards to be shuffled and indexed amongst the players without the need for a host to do so. With this, only the player can see his cards.

Crypto Poker Club Kicks Non-Humans Out

Poker bots are programmed to perform the best action given the limited amount of information they have. While beating bots could be a welcome challenge to professionals, the same could not be said for recreational players who join tables for fun more than anything.

That is one of the reasons why Bitcoin and Ethereum-powered Crypto Poker Club uses a multi-layered Security Protocol that keeps the game fun for poker players. One of those layers includes the detection of bots.

Crypto Poker Club searches for potential bots by monitoring mouse and keyboard activity, looking for malicious hooks, analyzing playing hours, and other measures. If a suspected bot triggers the blockchain platform’s security system, the account will be instantly kicked out of the tables out of precaution.

CoinPoker Brings Digital Tokens to the Table

Transferring funds in and out of an online casino account takes a long time. Each movement of money needs to go through processes done by a central figure—in most cases, banks. The delay causes uneasiness to most players as they are worried their funds might get lost in the process.

In comes CoinPoker, with the project’s own cryptocurrency, to bring ease to each poker player’s mind. The Ethereum-based CHP (CHiPs) can be bought and used from anywhere across the globe. Because of blockchain technology, CHP deposits and withdrawals are completed almost instantaneously. Furthermore, a player can check on blockchain explorer services online whether the online casino has sent his funds to his wallet.

With these three decentralized platforms promising a number of blockchain-based improvements into the industry, the online poker community could look forward to a future where playing on virtual tables are more fun than ever.
