What is MEVU?

I welcome you all once again to this Wonderful CRYPTOCURRENCY NETWORK BLOG, as usual ! all of you know’s, I always carry you along with any information about good crypto related projects through my blog.

INTRODUCTION:

An initial coin offering (ICO) or initial currency offering is a type of crowdfunding using cryptocurrencies. In an ICO, a quantity of cryptocurrency is sold in the form of “tokens” (“coins”) to speculators or investors, in exchange for legal tender or other cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin or ethereum. The tokens sold are promoted as future functional units of currency if or when the ICO’s funding goal is met and the project launches.

An ICO can be a source of capital for startup companies. ICOs allow startups to avoid regulatory compliance and intermediaries such as venture capitalists, banks and stock exchanges. ICOs may fall outside existing regulations, depending on the nature of the project, or be banned altogether in some jurisdictions, such as China and South Korea.

ICOs have been prone to scams and securities law violations. Fewer than half of all ICOs survive four months after the offering, while almost half of ICOs sold in 2017 failed by February 2018. Despite their record of failure and the falling prices of cryptocurrencies, a record $7 billion was raised via ICO from January-June 2081

The first token sale (also known as an ICO) was held by Mastercoin in July 2013. Ethereum raised money with a token sale in 2014, raising 3,700 BTC in its first 12 hours, equal to approximately $2.3 million at the time. An ICO was held by Karmacoin in April 2014 for its Karmashares project.

ICOs and token sales became popular in 2017. There were at least 18 websites tracking ICOs before mid-year. In May, the ICO for a new web browser called Brave generated about $35 million in under 30 seconds. Messaging app developer Kik’s September 2017 ICO raised nearly $100 million. At the start of October 2017, ICO coin sales worth $2.3 billion had been conducted during the year, more than ten times as much as in all of 2016. As of November 2017, there were around 50 offerings a month, with the highest-grossing ICO as of January 2018, being Filecoin raising $257 million (and $200 million of that within the first hour of their token sale).

Kik had previously issued $50 million in tokens called “Kin” to institutional investors, and sought to raise an additional $125 million from the public. In connection with this ICO, an unidentified third party executed a phishing scam by circulating a fake URL for the offering through social media.

By the end of 2017, ICOs had raised almost 40 times as much capital as they had raised in 2016, although still amounting to less than two percent of the capital raised by IPOs. According to industry newsletter Cointelegraph, companies raised around $6 billion via ICOs in 2017; 37% of that amount was made by only 20 ICOs. Already by February, 2018, an estimated 46% of the 2017 ICOs had failed.

ICOs are sometimes called “token sales”. Amy Wan, a crowdfunding and syndication lawyer, described the coin in an ICO as “a symbol of ownership interest in an enterprise — a digital stock certificate” stating that they are likely subject to regulation as securities in the U.S. under the Howey test.

Ethereum is (as of February 2018) the leading blockchain platform for ICOs with more than 80% market share. Tokens are generally based on the Ethereum ERC-20 standard. According to Cointelegraph the Ethereum network ICOs have resulted in considerable phishing, Ponzi schemes, and other scams, accounting for about 10% of ICOs.

On January 30, 2018, Facebook banned advertisements for ICOs as well as for cryptocurrencies and binary options. By April 9, 2018, ICO advertising has been banned not only by Facebook, but by Twitter, Google, and MailChimp.

In reference with the motion of this article, Today! I will be presenting you a particular undisputed project called:MEVU

What is MEVU?

 

Mevu is a, decentralized, peer-to-peer gaming application that will allow players to test their skills and compete individually or in pooled games. meVu allows players to create custom social bets or bets predicting the outcomes of popular sporting events, including but not limited to: European and American Football, Baseball, Hockey, Basketball, MMA and Boxing. meVu is innovating in the online betting space by facilitating competition between players, testing their skill and knowledge against other people, not a faceless casino or bookie.

Mevu is utilizing the power of blockchain technology to allow peer to peer bets in a transparent and secure way to bet against your friends – the platform guarantees security and your money is safely secured on the blockchain which allows quick and timely payments. The platform has lower fees compared to traditional and other blockchain based bets wagering platforms – due to its peer to peer transaction fees are reduced due to the elimination of third parties allowing you access to 100% of your winnings.

Online gambling is wagering something of value on the outcome of an event such as sports betting and lotteries, the market is vast and estimated to reach 52 billion dollars this years alone and has been doubling since 2009 – Mevu platform is allowing you to find peers who are interested compete with you globally.

Mevu will allow custom bets among peers due to its decentralized nature, where peers will have 100% control of their actions and decisions on the blockchain allowing peer to peer bets wagering without third party regulations.

Mevu platform is Ethereum based on an open source platform where everything is transparent through the use of smart contracts allowing consensus agreement between parties involved, the platform will provide tools that will enabled peers to store their resources and the necessary data in a private ecosystem. The platform algorithms will match the data with other peers on the platform and foster competition making betting more intriguing and exciting.

The Vision

meVu aims to become the most revered global platform made exclusively for players to bet anything, anytime against anyone. They envision a time when a common phrase could be “Let’s meVu bet!” meVu will initially focus on custom/social and sport head-to-head bets, but will quickly expand to add multi-bets in which multiple players can take the complementary position against a single larger bet. meVu will add exclusive features for our token holders to participate in pooled bets on sports games and provably fair casino style games in which they use the MVU token to play. Finally our API is already in development, allowing existing sportsbook/e-sports wagering sites to use our contracts.

The meVu brand is focused on bringing betting back to its basics, between people, the way it was meant to be. Putting control and power back in the player’s hands, we want to foster competition with global leaderboards while heightening the thrill and excitement of betting against other players as opposed to sport bookies.

The Problems

Legalized and regulated sports books enjoy marketing in mainstream channels; however, in order to do so, sports books need to get expensive licenses in every jurisdiction they operate in. Despite paying for these licenses, regulations still prohibit companies from many forms of marketing in the USA, Canada, and Asia. These licenses tend to have a negative reputation and don’t inspire much trust as there are other cases of sports books treating their players poorly and never paying out the winnings. 41% of Americans say they’ve won a bet that’s gone unpaid.

Another downfall to traditional sports books is that the initial capital required to support user bets is prohibitively high. The recommended minimum is to have no less than $300,000 with 1 million being the benchmark, and a safer estimate in order to support bets properly.

These costs cause sports books to charge high fees, typically between ten and fifteen percent, in order to generate a profit. Alternatively, companies open of shore online sports books which operate in a legal grey area, but the US government is notorious for prosecuting these types of enterprises.

In summary, there are many operational, licensing and upfront costs to starting a sports book. Clients are charged high fees to make up for these costs and are also forced to deal with 3rd party institutions who have wait times and fees of their own when redeeming winnings. Users are also forced to trust these third-party institutions with their information and funds.

The majority of these sports books exist in a legal “grey” area in order to operate and tap into large betting markets, i.e., USA, Canada, Asia. Players and the operations both run the risk of losing their funds due to regulatory repercussion, security vulnerabilities or exploitation of identity and information. Despite these issues, the online gambling market, both regulated and unregulated, is estimated to be worth at least a trillion dollars per year.

The Solution

As said earlier, meVu is a peer-to-peer, decentralized application that matches players who agree to odds on a bet. These bets can be centred on a sporting event or users can create custom bets on anything with two possible outcomes. Running on the Ethereum Virtual Machine, meVu’s open-source smart contract creates a secured escrow that is publicly view able. This allows players to follow their Ethereum cryptocurrency “ETH” throughout every step of the betting process. Creating peace of mind that once the winner is determined the Ether will be paid out quickly, securely and automatically. All funds are held within a contract on the blockchain and no individual, company or government can interfere with the payout. meVu virtually eliminates the risk of hacking and regulatory interference as there is no single point of failure in a blockchain network. By clearing payouts on Ethereum, meVu can cut the waiting times of traditional sports books while reducing fees from 10 percent to as low as 2 percent because it is never processed by a bank or any 3rd party institution.

The platform pairs people to compete against each other, removing the need for meVu to fund and back bets. Disputes between players on supported sports games are sent to Oracles who are incentivized to reach resolution through consensus. Furthermore, reputation systems and leaderboards foster the spirit of competition and deter malicious behaviour.

Why Blockchain?

They designed this platform to run using blockchain technology as the basis for the platform development. From the first appearance, blockchain comes with the offer of fast and secure online transactions and supports all types of data and cryptocurrency. Blockchain technology uses a system, where every transaction is recorded and can not be changed forever, so transaction security and transparency can be maintained and reduce the chance of cheating data.

They prefer to use Blockchain technology because this technology is more secure than ordinary technology today. Unlike conventional technology, Blockchain technology does not require a third party, so it’s safer and cost-effective. When data is recorded, it will be stored forever and can not be changed.
