It was also announced that the iDice mobile app, which is only available on the Ethereum Blockchain, will launch late Q3 of this year. iDice is Ethereum's first gambling platform that offers support for mobile devices. iDice is intent on becoming the SatoshiDICE of mobile devices. When questioned about mobile gaming, iDice’s founder and CEO, Jordan Wong, believes that this untapped area mobile gaming has potential.
“I think the gambling Dapp market is neglecting a huge market of mobile phone users. There isn’t a good cross-platform app that exists. It’s a huge opportunity for iDice to dominate and display its superior platform. Without mobile app, iDice can stay with our users no matter where they go. Our platform is flexible that way.”
Mobile phones count for around 68% of all internet traffic in the United States, which is why so many companies are focusing on mobile development. iDice’s goal is to reach and retain users in a sector that currently is free of competition. By offering a variety of games, including blackjack, roulette, slots, and poker, months before any competitors enter the market, they have the potential to hold a dominant position in the market.
Jordan continued by saying:
“We don’t want to compete with pre-existing gambling dapps. It will just become a war of ads. The only people who win in that scenario are the advertising agencies. Our niche is in the mobile sector.”
While iDice’s platform is certainly impressive, it is the latest technology, made possible by Ethereum smart contracts, that has garnered the most attention. This technology helps ensure games played on the Ethereum blockchain are more secure. In fact, iDice never has their hands on players’ funds. Instead, funds are paid directly from their wallet. This popular feature means that the site can never hold your funds for any reason.
