About

The main purpose behind the launch of BitPoker is to introduce a true peer-to-peer platform and protocol, that allows users to play poker uncensored over the internet. The project aims to be the OpenBazaar of online poker industry, by stressing on replacing the centralized gaming models with a more transparent, secure and decentralized structure.

At BitPoker, no central actor can rig the game and change the outcomes of the bets. It is achieved by utilizing Mental Poker, a non-shuffling poker protocol which allows players to generate encrypted random numbers on the fly. We understand the grave importance of pseudorandom generation of outcomes in a betting system, and we are hell-bent on delivering it to our players.
