Kick off for Bookie Public Beta ahead of World Cup
Reading Time: 2 minutes

3rd April, 2018, (Debert, Nova Scotia, Canada) – Bookie, the decentralized sports betting exchange built on blockchain technology, will go live with a public, play-for-fun public beta ahead of this summer’s World Cup.

Bookie Public Beta will offer users the opportunity to win real bitcoin prizes as they take part in a series of betting competitions and leaderboards using play money.

Running throughout the World Cup, the public beta is the final phase in Bookie’s development, after which it will be ready for full deployment on the Peerplays blockchain. Bookie Public Beta will be the first ever public showcase of provably fair sports betting.

Today’s announcement is accompanied by the launch of a new website where the Bookie Public Beta app will be available for download closer to the World Cup. Competition rules and bitcoin prize information will also be made available here over the coming weeks.

Bookie Public Beta will be open to all, and will look to educate the entire betting community – including punters, operators and regulators – about the benefits of blockchain for sports bettors.

The decentralized nature of Bookie means a full launch requires a majority approval by the Witnesses who run the Peerplays blockchain.

Toby Lynas, Head of Operations at PBSA, said: After months of hard work from the entire Bookie team, we are thrilled to be sharing this game-changing new betting exchange with the public ahead of the World Cup.

The betting exchange has not received a great deal of love in recent years, and we’ve spoken to lots of punters who are not happy with the current products. Bookie addresses these concerns by offering a sustainable, fair and transparent model that returns the betting exchange back to its roots.

We look forward to welcoming everyone to Bookie Public Beta over the coming months and offering the very best betting exchange experience.

Jonathan Baha’i, President of PBSA, added: The launch of Bookie Public Beta marks an important moment in the development of provably fair sports betting for the Peerplays blockchain, and we are thrilled to see a play-for-fun product live in time for this summer’s World Cup.

It is important that Bookie is properly tested in a public, live, play money environment. There will be some fantastic bitcoin prizes to be won across a series of competitions and leaderboards, and we look forward to spreading the word further in the run-up to Bookie Public Beta launch.

Stats Perform co-founder launches social gaming disruptor PickGuru with £2.6m investment round back by leading angels including Paddy Power.

PickGuru, a brand new social gaming platform, has secured £2.6m in seed funding in their quest to revolutionise the interaction between real-money wagering and live sport. The new platform will allow friends and fans to challenge each other in a wide variety of exciting sports prediction games.

With a concept built and refined by some of the most successful sports entrepreneurs in the UK, PickGuru will allow users to test their knowledge to win big cash pots for small stakes in nationwide leagues or compete with their friends in mini-leagues. Powered by seamless real-time data feeds, PickGuru leaderboards will update dynamically as games progress and reward successful sports gurus with cash prizes.

The funding round will be used to launch and scale PickGuru, set for early 2022.

PickGuru is headed by an experienced founding team including Oliver Slipper (co-founder of Stats Perform/DAZN), Paul Cobley (founder of Matulo Software), Paul Watkins (ex-FP&A director at Stats Perform/DAZN, ex-finance director at Sportquake), Jon Owen and Jon Youell (founders of Pitch International) and Adam Perrin (co-founder of Masomo Games, ex-brand director at Paddy Power).

What began as a competition amongst friends is now set to change the way fans interact with live sports forever. As told by PickGuru’s founders, the platform’s origins started as a manual spreadsheet-based tipping competition which was shared with friends and colleagues during the 2020 Masters tournament. After the game spread across the UK and became a viral sensation, the idea for a new and innovative platform to bring sports fanatics together was born.

PickGuru, is currently looking to fill 10 roles across development, compliance and marketing with a view to recruit a further 20 roles over the next 12 months.

Speaking about the latest fund raise, Oliver Slipper, chairman and co-founder of PickGuru, said: “I certainly didn’t expect things to take off less than a year after sending out a simple game to friends but the massive popularity of it convinced me that I was onto something.

“Following months of hard graft and huge investment, we’re proud to be building the first UK-focused platform that uniquely combines elements of fantasy sports, gaming and live action, and strongly believe users will love the result.”

He continued: “I’m delighted that some of the most successful sports entrepreneurs shared our vision and I thank them for backing our ambitious plans for the business.”

Following a £6m pre-money valuation, PickGuru brought together a list of angel investors including Paddy Power (ex-communications director, Paddy Power), Simon Wear (founder and chairman of Global Cycling Network), Oliver and Alexander Kent-Braham (founders of recent unicorn, Marshmallow) and Will Neale (founder of Grabyo).
