Ethereum Poker Gambling to come in 2017?
The gambling industry is full of fraud and mainly operated by offshore companies with little consumer protection.
Existing gambling companies are numerous and each are valued at a minimum of hundred of millions USD and upwards.
You can’t trust the software that online gambling companies use.
Online poker companies have been fined millions and some were closed down due to stealing from customers.
Ethereum gambling software can be provably fair ( e.g. its provable to be fair as you can inspect all the underlying software code).
Some technical challenges still remain but these can be overcome with intelligent programming solutions to solve complex problems.
Overcoming these challenges could mean the ordinary man using Ethereum and be the catalyst for mass adoption of Ethereum.
EtherPoker and Pokereum.io are two entities looking to launch fair online poker software using Ethereum.
