BetterBetting Continues development on the first version of the BETR platform

Better Betting announce details of their Early-2018 technology update, ahead of the 2018 World Cup.

Tallinn, Estonia - March 13, 2018 /MarketersMedia/ —

Better Betting is pleased to announce that nearly all the new roles in its Estonian development office have now been filled and new team members are rapidly coming up to strength.The team includes data specialists, UX and designers, client side coders, QA and of course the all-important blockchain developers.

“With the FIFA World Cup looming squarely on the horizon we have beefed up development capacity in order to be ready with the first version of the BETR decentralized peer-to-peer and peer-to-sportsbook betting cryptocurrency based distributed betting system and the first reference clients by mid-May 2018” said Ian Sherrington – CTO.

The Beautiful Game

More detail on the underlying architecture and functionality that will be released for the World Cup will be made available in coming updates, but at this stage the company can confirm that it will cover Football only, with further sports to be released over a rolling release schedule post the World Cup.

Football league coverage will be limited to the World Cup in the first release but soon after will include major leagues in time for the 2018/19 season including the English Premier League, Spanish Primera Liga, Italian Serie A, French Ligue 1, Germany Bundesliga and the UEFA Champions League. Further leagues will be rolled out as momentum grows.

Market depth is expected to start strong with at least 50 markets including the all important match-winner, totals and Asian handicap markets. With strong support in Asia it is expected that the network will offer significant liquidity on main markets presenting punters who may be restricted or have simply outgrown their local sportsbooks the opportunity to take advantage of the Better Betting Liquidity Pool.

“I think this last point is particularly interesting – we are already seeing strong interest from professional sports bettors who are keen to be able to bet in a robust and secure way with higher volumes than are possible through existing sportsbooks” said Adriaan Brink – CEO.

All bets will be placed and settled using the BETR token which was released in an initial token offering at the end of January 2018 at a starting price of 10c per token and is currently trading and available for purchase on major exchanges such as HitBTC, Bancor, IDEX, Etherdelta, Bisq and Waves.

European clocks slowed by lag in continent's power grid

Mar 24, 2018

BERLIN — Millions of Europeans who arrived late to work or school Wednesday had a good excuse — an unprecedented lag in the continent's electricity grid that's slowing down some clocks. The problem is caused by a political dispute between Serbia and Kosovo that's sapping a small amount of energy from the local grid, causing a domino effect across the 25-nation network spanning the continent from Portugal to Poland and Greece to Germany. "Since the European system is interconnected ... when there is an imbalance somewhere the frequency slightly drops," said Claire Camus, a spokeswoman for the European Network of...

Greek museum strike shut sites in Athens, Crete

Mar 24, 2018

ATHENS, Greece — Museums and archaeological sites in the wider Athens area and on the Greek island of Crete are shut for the day because of a strike by guards over a benefits dispute with the Culture Ministry. Sites affected by Friday's strike included Greece's famed Acropolis in Athens, where disappointed tourists hoping to visit the Parthenon headed instead to a nearby hill to view the monument from afar. The nearby Acropolis Museum, however, remained open. The museum guards' union described the 24-hour work stoppage as a "warning strike."

No art or wood paneling _ some law firms work in the cloud

Mar 24, 2018

NEW YORK — There's no wood paneling or plush carpet at Culhane Meadows — the law firm's 52 attorneys practice out of their homes or rented work spaces. Culhane Meadows is one of many law firms without dedicated office space that now operate virtually using software, email, videoconferencing and the internet to work and connect with clients. Attorneys at virtual firms say that without the trappings and overhead of a traditional practice, they can charge lower fees, work for a variety of clients and have more say over their work/life balance. Practicing virtually can also mean taking extra steps to...

Justices look at how older law applies to internet cloud

Mar 24, 2018

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Tuesday explored what happens when a decades-old law meets 21st century technology. The justices heard arguments in a dispute between the Trump administration and Microsoft Corp. over a warrant for emails stored in the internet cloud outside the United States. The Drug Enforcement Administration wanted the emails as part of a drug trafficking investigation. The agency obtained a warrant under a 1986 law, but Microsoft refused to turn over the emails because they are stored on a company server in Dublin, Ireland, and the warrant does not apply abroad. The federal appeals court in...

Parts of Ramses II statue found in southern Egypt

Mar 24, 2018

CAIRO — Egypt says archaeologists have discovered parts of a statue of one of its most famous pharaohs in the southern city of Aswan. The Antiquities Ministry said Tuesday the head and chest of the statue of Ramses II were found in the Temple of Kom Ombo during a project to protect the site from groundwater. Egypt hopes the find, along with other recent discoveries, will help revive its tourism sector, which has been battered by years of unrest since the 2011 uprising. Ramses II, also known as Ramses the Great, ruled Egypt from 1279 B.C. to 1213 B.C. He...
