I made a Bitcoin based Trading Card Game (AMA)!

Hello Reddit!

This is the first place I wanted to debut a game I've been spending quite some time working on. It's a Bitcoin backed trading card game called "Bitcards". The game consists of collecting cards and then using those cards to construct decks which you can battle other players with. Each different card you collect will be represented by a different Omni Layer token which is ultimately secured by the Bitcoin blockchain.

One of my (and the teams) core beliefs is that in order for blockchain technology to become widespread there must be sustained and varied use cases for the technology. Trading card games are an ideal space for blockchain tech to be applied as the blockchain solves two major issues with traditional trading card games up front.
  1. Authenticity - Cardboard collectables can ultimately be forged no matter how many measures the manufacturer takes to make forgery difficult. Bitcoin baked tokens cannot be forged.
  2. Trading cardboard with people is difficult - The blockchain is digital which allows the trading of assets to be done online or through various platforms, this makes trading much easier than meeting in person or trading cards at a hobbyist store.
The game will be free to play where you download the client and recieve a 60 card starter deck. The starter cards are not bitcoin backed tokens but rather a representation of some common cards on our server for you to get started with free of charge. After that you can purchase booster packs for about 1.5$ (in BTC) per pack (depending on mining fee). We will always limit the supply of our booster packs as limited print runs are in the spirit of trading card games and limited supply is in the spirit of Bitcoin!

The first release and first set are our Alpha release and we are looking to listen to feedback and squash as many bugs as possible. Due to this Alpha will launch with 250 000 Alpha booster packs. Once packs are sold out players are encouraged to trade with each other in order to acquire the cards they need.

Right now all cards are stored in the clients private key which is on your local machine. We will be soon adding the functionality to add a public key to an account so that you can store your card collection offline or in another omni supporting wallet in order secure it (registering a public key will mean you can create cold storage to hold your cards while your public key acts as proof to the server that you own the cards, only instance of a particular public key can be registered to any one account at any one time).

We are also talking to a hardware wallet company about partnering with them to have their wallet support all our tokens as well as all other omni layer tokens.

Please ask me anything! Thanks for your time!

Devs note: This is an alpha and currently there is an issue which may make the initial load time when starting the game for the first time longer than usual, we are working tirelessly to solve this. The load time isn't all that long so please be patient, Kind Regards, Dom.

Get the game for free here!:

UPDATE: Got some great feedback and already found a few bugs to fix! Going to fix the bugs and upload a new version of the game! In the mean time I'm going to deactivate the download links on the site so that other people aren't exposed to an outdated build.

Future development roadmap:

- Lightning layer support for booster pack purchase and card trading.
- Card market de-central exchange.
- Registration of multiple public keys.
- Native hardware wallet support.
- Match making and ladder ranking system
- Faster load times.

Top ICO Scams of 2017

2017 was a year when ICOs raised the highest amount since inception -- a staggering more than $3.6 billion as of November according to Autonomous Next. Most of ICOs happened during the first quarter of 2017 at a rate of more than 50 ICOs every single day. In June, ICOs had raised more than $550 million.
But 2017 was also a year when scammers and hackers dug deeper into the pockets to steal more. By far, governments and banks cite scams and hacks for a need of regulations. Disorganization and poor planning of projects is a huge contributor to project failures.
Here's a list of largest scams of 2017.
MYBTGWALLET.COM Users lost a total of $3.3 million to scammers who deceived to give their private keys or recovery seeds to operators of the scam website so they can generate Bitcoin Gold wallets for them and give the coins.
The operators of the website diverted money into a different Bitcoin address. was created by John Dass who was, not only a member of Bitcoin Gold community, but also promoted the project on Bitcoin Gold media channels. Bitcoin Gold developers issued a statement saying they were working with the security experts to reach to the bottom of the matter.
Analysis of the website code showed the website stored the private keys when they were submitted. The owners of the project also changed the GitHub code.
BITCARD Bitcard frequently-asked-questions-faq-8bde1608c7e4 held its ICO on May 2017 and raised $5 million promising everything -- to replace nearly all components of modern business, government, trading and transaction facilitation. No details showed how that could be achieved! People reported inconsistencies about the project and complained it was a scam.
After ICO was finished, the team disintegrated and not a product was delivered as promised -- smart contract constructor and biometric verification on May and then launch a dispute resolution department, a multi stakeholder token model and a decentralized trade engine.
None is launched yet. Either the project was a scam from formation or promised something they were not sure what it would take to accomplish.
CONFIDO Confido held an ICO in November and raised more than $375,000. Confido branded itself as a "smart contracts" start up and its tokens traded for $1.20 on November 14 before the project disappeared and founders said they were legal difficulties they couldn't crack.
They ended up removing all social media accounts and website. However, a "Chris-ConfidoSupport" on Reddit said he was shocked by what had happened. Though it was not clear if indeed he was not involved in the scam and putting up a show on Reddit, he said it was “completely out of character” for Joost van Doorn -- the project creator, to disappear. He promised to help others recover the lost money.
A statement appeared on November 24th claiming that the owner took down the social media and website due to threats on his life. He said although the intention was not to create a scam, the project could not continue as planed. They gave an exit plan for people to sell heir tokens for KuCoin on December 20th. What a way to exit!
TO THE Moon ToTheMoon only managed to reach to their "moon" on the October 31 when they raised more than $27 million in the less than a month-long ICO. They sold 45,000,000 TMT of 51,750,000 TMT to investors who never saw a single of the promised "moons" -- including a “full-service mining solution”, “turnkey mining services, and custom packages tailored to clients’ needs from hosting, maintenance, repair and private blockchain servicing.
It was later discovered that they had lifted verbatim word by word from another project's (Giga Watt) White Paper -- not excluding all the diagrams, proprietary designs, pricing structures, industry descriptions, and even team members’ unique work experience” according to this forum.
Token Tops website where the ICO was advertised flags it as a scam.
KARBON Another scam. Kaboom! Karbon was to be a decentralized social marketplace. They raised more than $200,000 in their ICO held August 26 to September 2017.
The Ethereum-based project creators said they would facilitate a "connection" between users, merchants and advertisers to co-exist in a professional environment. A search on revealed that no tokens were associated to the project. TokenTops where the project was advertised lists it as a scam.
HONG COIN Hong Coin never came from Hong Kong. It was to be a decentralized venture fund built on Ethereum. They scheduled their ICO from July 1 to 18 last year.
Token Top also listed it as a scam claiming the project either failed or the owners became overwhelmed by it.
BORG DAO Borg DAO wanted to stimulate development on Ethereum Classic by incentivizing developers to support the project's ecosystem and integrate their applications into the protocol. It later disappeared and was listed a scam at Token Top website where it was posted.
