What is CoinPoker?

CoinPoker is a virtual poker room and gambling platform built on the Ethereum blockchain. The platform operates solely on cryptocurrencies such as USDT, is a stable coin with a pegged value to the US dollar. According to CoinPoker, players can also withdraw their balance in bitcoin (BTC) and ether (ETH).

CoinPoker launched in 2017 and completed its initial coin offering offer (ICO) in late January 2018. The CHP token listed on cryptocurrency exchanges, including Bankera,  in the same year.

According to CoinPoker’s whitepaper, the platform will operate on Ethereum smart contract based crypto-currency protocols. CHP can only be used on the CoinPoker platform in legally permitted jurisdictions.

“The CHP can be used to play poker on the CoinPoker Platform by any person who has rightful possession of the CHP and is situated in a Permitted Jurisdiction,” according to the whitepaper.

Permitted jurisdictions include those where online poker is:

  1. Legal because it is considered a game of skill

  2. Licensed by a legitimate authority

  3. Not governed by the laws of the jurisdiction where the person is situated

CoinPoker has said that operating the platform using CHP will allow players to buy the token online regardless of their geographic region, which widens the access to the platform. It also claims that CoinPoker has a faster-processing speed than traditional online poker rooms.

“Players can fund or withdraw from their CoinPoker account instantaneously. As a consequence the CHP has enormous utility,” said CoinPoker.
“It opens up previously closed geographical markets and bypasses banks, e-wallets and other third-party brokers who create distrust in the poker community and cause payment delays.” 

Random number generator (RNG)

CoinPoker has implemented its proprietary decentralised random number generator (RNG) on its platform, which ensures a truly random card shuffle during games. The platform believes it has invented the most accurate RNG in the market “based on a hybrid system using pre-committed partial RNG seeds provided separately by each participating player and the operator.

“All gameplay actions, including each participant’s seed information are recorded and uploaded publicly in defined time intervals. Final game information becomes visible via a smart contract on blockchain, where everyone can review and verify the randomness procedure.”

Low rake fees

Traditionally, cardroom operating casinos charged a scaled commission on poker game players or the pot to cover overheads. This commission is known as rake and can be as high as 15% of the tournament fee.

CoinPoker is operating as a commission-free platform, but set a 4% rake for cash games and 7% for tournaments. The commissions collected are reinvested into CoinPoker to cover administrative expenses and will also be returned to the community as ‘rakeback’ in promotional activities. All the rakeback will be paid in CHP tokens.  

According to its whitepaper, no less than 25% of the community fund will be returned to the community through promotions such as rake races, daily tournaments and jackpots.

Token supply and distribution

CHP token’s value is divisible to 18 decimal points and the cryptocurrency is transferable on the Ethereum network.

Following the ICO in January 2018, 500 million CHP tokens were released. 75% was offered for sale to players and investors, while 15% was reserved for tournament prize pools. The remaining 10% was distributed evenly between the currency exchange and the team and advisors. Unsold tokens are burned automatically by a smart contract.

According to CoinMarketCap, CHP has a circulating supply of 274.7 million coins and a live market cap of $16.3m. 

Who is behind CoinPoker?

CoinPoker claims the platform is “heavily backed by the poker community as well as crypto enthusiasts all over the world”.

According to its website, the platform is managed by a team of seven. The chief development officer Rene Boutestijn, an online gaming software engineer with more than a decade of experience.

The chief technology officer and smart contract developer is Justas Kregzde, who works as an online poker software developer. The chief community manager is Isabelle Mercier, a professional poker player who is active in the market.

Project risk profile

According to cryptocurrency research and data site Is This Coin A Scam, the CoinPoker project is not being monitored. The cryptocurrency data provider conducts research on projects based on five criteria: community, credibility, sentiment, development and trading volumes. The final score is based on the site’s research on social media platforms such as Reddit and Twitter. 

Industry news provider CryptoNewsZ said the platform has “strong community contributions that uses CHP as its native currency and received good traffic.

“CoinPoker is unquestionably one of the more appealing choices. This is the reason why every review of CoinPoker is positive, and players register to play CoinPoker without a price, but with good payouts. Players or customers enjoying the tournament also prefer taking advantage without paying any fees.”

Forecasts are based on inferences drawn from the past performance by analyst’s and may go wrong, due to market gyrations, change in policies and unknown parameters. Investors should also consider the token’s collaborations, partnership deals and fundamentals before relying completely on the predictions.

You should do research and base your decision to buy cryptocurrencies on your attitude to risk. Investors should gauge how comfortable they are about losing money. You should never invest money that you cannot afford to lose.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
