Development of our bookmaking service is well under way. The great news about developing in Vancouver B.C is that the rainy season keeps us indoors and working hard! Here are some milestones to look forward to from the team:
FAN tokens will be made available in public token generation event, more information coming soon with the release of our Token Information document.
As we ramp up for launch work we will be releasing our data services for Basketball. Look forward to a most excellent API where you can get all kinds of court data from our machine learning team!
The Ethereum blockchain and smart contracts will be the used to facilitate trustless betting. The primary objectives for this phase will include, but not be limited to, the following: development of smart contracts, integration of an oracle service (such as Oraclize) and integration with the managed server.
We will be demonstrating a full walkthrough of our beta site for MLB money line, run line, parlay, props and exotics. We will be releasing videos going step by step through our betting process and showing bettors how easy it is to get money in and out of our platform.
The managed server will handle information that isn’t pertinent to facilitate trustless betting and will be the backbone of the web and client applications. The primary objectives for this phase will include, but not be limited to, the following: integration of third-party API feeds for sports betting data, database design and platform API design & development.
To ensure our full launch is smooth, we will be asking our members to try betting some baseball for FAN Token rewards. We believe in community feedback so we will allow users to stress test the system and ensure our betting smart contract holds up for the entire MLB season leading up to launch.
How can we not let our bettors bet on the beautiful game? We will be launching a closed Beta for the World Cup where people will be wagering with real FAN tokens! We will also be testing KYC requirements for bettors during this time and ensuring we are able to incorporate this with minimal effort and documentation required. We are incredibly excited to take bets on such a big event.
Our machine learning team will release years of unique data to help our users bet gridiron with confidence. We are committed to educating all FAN bettors with the very best in class data that historically only syndicates could use.
Our first focus is on the BIG 5. NFL, NHL, NBA, MLB and major soccer leagues covering the whole range of bets as a hybrid Exchange/Bookmakers model. At this point we will start taking FAN Tokens and grading bets focusing on traditional wager types, exotics and props. Development will be mobile first, so you will be able to place your bets from your desktop, tablet or phone.
Components that will be completed during this phase of development include:
FansUnite will expand it's product offering from the Big 5 to other international sports including tennis, cricket, rugby, combat sports, eSports and more.
