I also like the look so far. Going forward i would suggest using the pokerstars client as an example because it is considered by far the best in the poker community.
As a poker player i would strongly advice against betting in cryptos. Adoption will be far easier if you give people what they are used to. (Betting in Usd and Euros)

In the video the developer said, that he is not sure in which currency the actual betting on the table would be.
I would suggest it to be in Usd as it is way more convenient for poker pros aswell as recreational players.

Interesting idea, though you do run into some centralization problems, plus the expensive Nxt fee to pay.

I plan to allow SuperNET users to denominate their transactions/balances in whatever they want to see it in

We could denominate the blinds in dollars while using cryptos. So internally, the blinds might be 0.00106/0.00212 bitcoins one day or something slightly different the next day, but in the client we can just denominate in dollars and use the days' exchange rate to convert.

Doesn't that mean that it's really NXT still.... so the price would fluctuate? I'm sure it would put people off seeing their wallet leak dollars.

if they activate the arbitrage tradebot, hopefully it will be able to maintain fiat value. I think if people can park it in coinoUSD or have some portion "float" and they can control it, it would introduce them to what crypto can do, but still allow the conservative poker players to stay all in fiat

I set up the Twitter, and will post same updates as here there too for those using it; twitter.com/PangeaPoker
I registered the domain, pangeapoker.net which will be used later, just for downloading the client when released, figured those not accustomed to bct/nxtforums would be more comfortable going there

other stuff, discussed & brainstormed some marketing strategies/rakes in #pangea, but nothing decided upon

also contacted Sergio, author of dc.uba.ar/inv/tesis/licenciatura/2010/lerner and asked if he'd like to do a review once we're done, we'll see, as he's somewhat of an expert in the field his thoughts would be interesting to hear


latest from Tom, our GUI

I would suggest that you put all the effort you can into making a really really pretty and fast GUI. There is a big difference between semi-good-looking interface and a great looking interface where everything is speedy. I'm sure most of you know how this works out, but you can go and compare Pokerstars and something like iPoker client. And there are many more poker rooms even worse. The iPoker is really subpar and it's a pain-in-the-ass because it's noticably slower. You just want to close that client and never look back. I think this is a big advantage that Pokerstars has and people tend to flock there.

I played a lot of online poker myself a couple of years ago, so I'm really looking forward to this!
I'm mainly a ruby developer, so can't really help on the python side, but I'm really interested in how you will solve the decentralization issue.

I completely agree!
This is one of the most important aspects after having a lot of fishy players at the tables.

That being said,
the poker stars GUI and the latest pangea GUI, which looks very similiar, always looks to me like something you can throw to together in photoshop in 30 min. (personally I always liked the full tilt GUI the best)
But maybe that's a good thing ... I think it's more about simplicity, speed, and user experience in general. You can still have a simple and fast GUI but if something doesn't feel right while playing, it will drive users away.

PS: You should still work on the round edges between felt and arm rest. It doesn't seem to have the right size and looks a bit distracting.

full tilt always had the best looks out of the box imo. i used to do a lot of modding back in the day and tilt was the easiest to work with in terms of spacing and image manipulation (svg).

Majority voted for "yes", but not for "now". So IMO dividends will not be so fast  ;D

There was no "yesterday" option, so we were forced to compromise

I thought it was a typo and intended was "no". Maybe I was not the only one voting "yes" for this reason ;)
