Blockchain Technology and Lotteries
Blockchain Technology and lotteries are a match made in heaven as it helps address various challenges in the industry. It helps to introduce fairness, regulatory compliance and availability across the world. ETH smart contracts feature, if programmed right, can be completely corruption-free which is a big issue in online lottery games.
The prize pool is from 70% of the collected funds from lottery ticket sales and cannot be infringed upon by the management due to the immutable nature of Ethereum blockchain smart contracts features. If nobody wins the lottery, the amount is rolled over to the next pool and thus it keeps on increasing until there is a winner.
Problems resolved by the MegaEther team include:
- Higher chance of winning the lottery as in MegaEther, a player’s chances of winning are more than 30 times higher than a traditional lottery.
- Instant payouts as the platform are based on reliable smart contracts features.
- Possibility of human intervention is eliminated due to the automation of the process through the smart contracts feature. Any possibility of tampering is therefore removed.
- Winners remain anonymous and thus are less likely to become targets of scams or crimes.
- The platform is unmonopolizable as governments and even founders don’t have any control over the games.
More in-depth details and workings of the new lottery platform can be seen in the official whitepaper of the company. The whitepaper details intricate composition of the new platform including its functioning algorithm, sales commission figures promised, further token sale’s details and the staking contract that the company has set up for its digital tokens.
