We have told you several times about the No-Loser Lottery, Pool Together . Several things come to explain this phenomenon. Beyond its playful aspect, Pool Together is one of the concepts capable of proving the potential of smart contracts and Ethereum: a new type of applications inconceivable before.
It is sort of a glimpse into the future, and you have until November 13 to vote
To vote, you must first have tickets that make you eligible . The vote brings the number of winners in the weekly lottery. Until now, the lottery has awarded the entire prize to a single winner. The team’s position was to create a new lottery as soon as the potential payout of the previous one exceeded the equivalent of $ 10,000 .
This rule is about to change since it is now possible, until November 13, to vote to change or not the number of weekly winners .
For the actual vote, all you have to do is sign a message
Therefore, you will not have to pay any transaction fees . This positive point deserves to be underlined insofar as these currently high fees of Ethereum would limit the interest of such a vote.
For the moment, the community has voted to increase the number of winners in each lottery, from “one winner” to between “two and five winners” . The lottery bonus prizes , consisting in particular of donations and NFTs ( non fungible tokens ) , would be awarded to one winner , while the others would share the interest generated fairly according to their number.
Personally, I voted for there to be no change. This choice is justified mainly by the interest that constitutes the gain of an equivalent or close to 10,000 dollars. Indeed, such a sum is close to that used by the association monrevenudebase.fr .
Indeed, it regularly draws lots an individual in order to allocate him 1,000 euros per month for one year (you can also participate, registration is free). Such a sum therefore has a greater influence on the course of a life. However, the idea of a larger number of winners also has many advantages and the popularity of this choice makes sense.
