- Using Whisper or ZeroMQ, users will be able to send/receive messages quickly across the network, ensuring a faster gameplay.- Deposits and withdrawals will be handled on the Bitcoin network, which is much faster than any other traditional payment method.- Players will not be asked to make a deposit to play; they are opening payment channels, which means funds are always in their control, and never held on a centralized server or wallet..- Using mental poker algorithms, users are encouraged to inspect the shuffling algorithms, software, and messages over the wire.- The first clients will communicate by the encrypted whisper protocol. Should there be demand, I TOR client will also be developed.- CHIP Token will be used as game chips or for mining rake on Bitcoin tables.
