    Token use

    Edgeless tokens are an app-coin and the only thing users can bet with on Edgeless Casino.

    Edgeless token holders are promised the opportunity to collected 40% of the site’s profits monthly, like a dividend. This does not happen automatically; holders have to enter a “lottery” (there is no luck involved) to receive their dividend.

    Project summary

    Edgeless have recently released 0% house edge smart contract blackjack, dice, slots and baccarat.

    Edgeless was hacked and lost 26,793 ether ($5.6 million at the time), approximately 43% of the ether raised in their ICO. After this hack, Edgeless changed its product from a platform where users bet ether to a platform where users can only bet with Edgeless tokens. This was because they had planned to use the stolen ether as the bankroll.

    This makes their product higher friction with a narrower potential audience.

    Poker and Sportsbook promised for 2019

    In a blog post Edgeless confirmed plans to launch a poker and sports betting product. There are no details of whether these will be smart contract, blockchain based and 0% house edge.
