Over the last two weeks, we have worked tirelessly on building a decentralized bankroll service on the WAX io blockchain. Today, we are proud to announce the release of betpink.gg, the first gambling site built fully on top of the pink.network bankroll service. We will kick off the launch with a 4,000 WAX giveaway, more on that later.

How does betpink.gg work?

At launch, one main game mode will be available: The Lucky Wheel. Every 40 seconds, the wheel will spin randomly and land on one of the 54 different tiles. Players can bet on any of the 4 colors, and if the wheel lands on the color they chose, they will win a multiple of their bet. Other players' bets will be shown, and a chat is available for the players to communicate.

It is important to understand that the wheel spinning is actually just a visual representation of what is happening on the WAX blockchain. The smart contracts generate a provably fair random number between 1 and 54, and the players bet on ranges of these numbers. The possible outcomes are then mapped to the different tiles of the wheel by our site, and a spin animation is shown to make it more exciting.

betpink.gg is implemented completely with the pink.network API

Everything that you see on the site, without exception, is built with our bankroll API. That means that it is a 100% frontend-only site. Traditionally, in order to host a site like this, developers would have to implement a sophisticated backend system that gathers all the information from the blockchain and then sends them to the users. This information would also have to be stored in a database, in order to show the ranking of the most active players. And then, another backend system to handle the chat would be needed.

All of this is handled by our publicly available API. This enables developers to build their own applications with a lot less effort, and propels the WAX blockchain forward as a whole.

If you’re a developer and are interested in learning more about our API, you can check out our documentation here.


Play on betpink.gg during launch week and win your share of 4,000 WAX

We want to reward the early adopters playing on our site. If you visit the page, you can already see a ranking showing the biggest bettors. Exactly one week from the release of this article, the 5 biggest bettors will receive prizes, the 1st of which getting 2,000 WAX (~$130). If that attracts your interest, you can click here to go directly to the site.

We will also be hosting a Twitter giveaway soon. If you want to be sure to be notified about it and want to keep up to date with our project, you can follow us @pinknetworkx.
