PokerTON (t.me/pokertonbot) is a poker room right in the Telegram. No restrictions, anonymous, no downloads and registrations required.
Players are playing with other players and not versus the casino! Poker is a game where always wins the best skilled player in the long-term. These players take actions which have the maximum expected value.
So, poker is a game of skill and intelligence, but not luck!
The first tournament with prizes in TON was launched on May 14, 2020.
Our initial hypothesis was:
Will people play poker in order to get TON tokens ?
Will they associate TON Crystal with Telegram?
The answer is - YES.
There were 28 people in the first tournament, and 360 people in the last tournament.
For six months we have been running free tournaments (freerolls) with prizes in TON Crystals.
At the moment, freerolls are held every day at 20-00 (CET time).
Prize fund of the daily tournament - 100 TON Crystals, Sunday - 500 TON Crystals
For all the time, we have already held 106 free tournaments and handed out 14,500 TON Crystals to the winners.
Motivation & Goals
Poker enthusiasts are loyal and familiar with cryptocurrencies and the decentralization concept itself. They actively use it and regularly make transactions in various cryptocurrencies for deposits or withdrawals.
Our players are the target audience of the Free TON and TON Crystal. Each PokerTON user has a TON wallet and actively uses tokens. TON Crystal will be a new currency that can be played with other players on the platform. Token holders who do not want to exchange TON for fiat are actively looking for various use cases for tokens.
We have created a platform with a large volume of transactions in the FreeTON network.
Poker lovers do not want to withdraw tokens, they want to play with other players and have fun.
Most of the tokens will remain in circulation within the FreeTON ecosystem. PokerTON is made 50% of Telegram and 50% of FreeTON
We will host 1000 tournaments in various Telegram chats and channels in almost 20 countries of the world with a total prize pool of 300,000 tokens.
1st month: CIS countries, India, Indonesia, Turkey
2nd month: Germany, Great Britain, Canada, Italy, France and other countries where Telegram is popular
We will also hold special closed tournaments for the “early adopters” of the FreeTON community, for those who have been familiar with FreeTON for a long time.
We are planning to hold a private high-roller tournament for validators with a prize pool of 30,000 TON
