Hi all. I'm 5KB, and run my own company, I'll be project lead/business developing/marketing and all things needed for Pangea. I partnered up with jl777, and also valarmg who completes on the things I can't do. to simplify, when I bring the business side, valarmg brings the poker side, in between we meet to create the best product for both the player and the shareholder.
I looked for a GUI developer for the project for about a month, good GUI developers are surprisingly hard to find, and finally found Hobofife, who will do the GUI, he started earlier this month.
I wanted to create something of value within crypto, but never a coin, since I see the market for services as very untapped within crypto, since each time someone has an idea they want to make a coin out of it! so when discussing and becoming interested about decentralized poker, I found that the subject has been around for over a decade, one big problem was how money should be handled, amongst other things. since they didn't have blockchain technology back then, the solution is found here, and with good developers like jl777 and valarmg, we can accomplish it, then make a killer app out of it, enjoyable to play, and in a decentralized structure costs can be held down compared to existing competitors, so it can reflect the rakes positively, allowing to draw in more players, also from countries where govs have clamped down on it. one important thing will be trying to get pokerplayers from outside crypto, to be able to play without having to learn about bitcoin, but that's getting ahead of ourselves!
Anyway, thats a little about me, if anyone feels like they want to contribute or have suggestions, critisism, you can find me in #pangea on supernet slack, or msg me on BCT or here, soon we'll have a little more GUI and other things to discuss and analyze, then I'd like to get as much feedback as possible to get the best possible product, and even if the tech behind it will be cool, bottom line is it has to cater to players, it should just be a easy enjoyable thing to play a couple rounds of poker, so best ways to do this is to adapt to what players want it to be.
also I saw someone inquiring about ETAs or details, soon there'll be a rough estimate once most things are in place and can be somewhat calculated, but I'll keep my lips sealed since we got christmas coming up, but we're transparent so if you stick in Pangea channel you can probably form a good opinion of when it'll be
