1st Rewards Phase Update

Hello all!

With minimal downtime, ether for the 1st rewards phase is now located in the treasury account in preparation for next weeks rewards phase.

Details on how to participate in next week rewards period are available here. It is important that you read and understand the instructions posted in order to claim your rewards next week. It is the sole responsibility of the ÐICE token holder to follow the instructions and steps outlined in the link above in order to claim any and all ÐICE rewards. ÐICE rewards rely entirely on the ÐICE token holders participation. Without the ÐICE token holders participation, rewards for those ÐICE tokens are forfeit. No exceptions.

Some numbers:
1,419.240155488823749071 ether was moved from the game contract into the treasury holding account in preparation for next weeks distribution. Before moving the majority of ether there was a 1 ether test transaction which is why the above transaction shows as 1,418.240155488823749071 ether.

The original bankroll has been upped from its initial 1200 ether to 2500 ether. This means that anything above and beyond 2500 ether in the next rewards period will be sent to the rewards contract.

We now look forward to next weeks successful rewards phase, so expect some announcements from us in the coming days. A big thank you to all of the supporters that have made this a very successful first quarter for Etheroll. We love seeing all the tools you guys (and girls!?) are building for our growing community and are blown away at the level of participation we are seeing by the community overall. Really great stuff!

We have some really cool stuff in the pipeline, and once the first rewards period is over we can focus on building out these new features into a production environment.

Let’s roll!

Quick Development Update

Just a quick update from us; we are working on a lot of behind-the-scenes stuff at the moment – not too much to report right now in regards to actual deployments.

Rewards contract:
Internal testing of the rewards contract is ongoing with security audits scheduled to begin next week. The plan is to push major announcements out into the community along with site updates surrounding the claiming of rewards ~24th July. This gives the community a 2 week lead-up into the 1st rewards phase. Everything is on track internally and we are happy with the progress being made with the rewards contract.

Bankroll increase/advertising:
Postponed until after the 1st rewards period. Development wise, the lead up to the 1st rewards period is a crucial time for us and the entire community, so we appreciate your patience with us as we work towards kicking these time-critical goals before we expand any further in these regards.

Behind-the-scenes:
Internally the majority of the front-end has been ported over to Angular 4 thanks to our new front-end developer and new mobile layouts/designs are beginning to take shape thanks to our UI/UX designer – all ongoing and still very much work-in-progress.

After the 1st rewards period our focus returns heavily to optimization of gas costs, bankroll increases, design and advertising. Progress is moving along nicely and we look forward to the coming weeks announcements, site updates and a successful 1st rewards period. Let’s roll!

Status Update

Hello all,

We apologize for the recent delays and inconvenience a few of you have experienced playing Etheroll over the past 24 hours.

Unfortunately, due to circumstances that were beyond our control:

We experienced a backlog of game transactions over the past 24 hours, however all unprocessed games have now been processed and your results will show up under the ‘Your Latest Results’ tab on our website:
https://etheroll.com/#tab2

We apologize for any inconvenience and wish you luck on future rolls.

Kind regards,
Etheroll

Development Updates

Hello all!

We have just deployed recent updates to etheroll.com. In this latest release comes the following:

  1. Metamask support (BETA!)
    We are now able to support players who wish to use the Google Chrome Metamask extension (may require clearing your cache). This development update significantly reduces the barrier-to-entry for new players by completely removing the need for our users to install Mist browser and run a full Ethereum node.

    Players can now play instantly after simply installing the Metamask extension. You can find instructions on how to play our game using Metamask under our ‘How to Play‘ tab.

    The Metamask release is still in BETA so if you experience any issues please contact us using the instructions on the support tab and we will be able to assist you. Internal testing has given us good results, however live deployment ‘in-the-wild’ can sometimes be a different story.

  2. We are status.im ready!
    We are proud to announce today that the mobile version of our game has been built! Above are real screenshots of screenplay we have been testing locally inside of status.im. You can now visit etheroll.com in your mobile to see a preview of how our current layout (new designs are WIP – see below) will look in status.im.

    Status.im is currently only available on test-net and won’t be available on main-net until Q1 2018. We are opening up discussions with status.im in order to have our test-net app deployed onto their platform. Once added you will be able to play our test-net game on your mobile with the status.im app, happy days!

    We have been running tests internally (locally) and etheroll works as intended on status.im. The mobile gaming market is YUGE and we are ready for it, today!

    Please note: You will not be able to play etheroll on your mobile with status.im today and the mobile version is how our current site design/layout reacts in mobile. We are working on new design/layouts to focus on the mobile market. However, if status.im was to launch tomorrow, we would essentially be ready today.

On-going Development

Some boring ‘behind-the-scenes’ stuff, but no less important!

  1. Reduced gas costs
    We are now ready to start internal testing of our updated smart-contract on test-net which will significantly reduce gas-costs moving forward. We have been working together with Oraclize in order to get this functionality in place and we are now working on this as a priority for a live release very soon. We expect to see significant savings in gas costs with this new release. Stay tuned for further details as we bring this next release to you.
  2. New Developer!
    We have hired an experienced, focused and well-trusted developer (who is an absolute gun, a real weapon!) with whom we have a long relationship to assist with the re-build of the front end of the site using Angular 4.Currently, the front-end of the site is built using jQuery, which was suitable at the time, but moving forward jQuery is just not going to be flexible enough for us. The new site re-build will allow us to be more nimble in our ability to adjust for site updates moving forward. Specifically, the re-build will assist us in applying new design layouts, which will be focused primarily on a ‘mobile-first’ experience. As per our 3-6 month road-map, new design and layouts will not be deployed until post August, but rest-assured that we are working on them.
  3. Rewards Contract
    To be completed and available on main-net early August. Front-end site updates will accompany this smart-contract deployment, including full instructions on how to claim rewards in the first rewards phase in the week beginning August 7. In order to be eligible for rewards it is important that you withdraw your DICE tokens from all exchanges prior to this date.
