Project Goal: PredicTRON is a betting Dapp: the only one on TRON. Using TRON’s low transaction fees, high TPS, reliability, and openness, PredicTRON far surpasses the predatory & exploitative traditional betting platforms. Vision: make TRON the #1 chain for all betting entertainment.
PredicTRON is a betting platform that provides betting entertainment to anyone using the power of the TRON blockchain. It solves the many problems of the traditional betting platforms, stemming from decisions by predatory, opaque, unreliable casinos that statistically exploit users without much innovation.
PredicTRON solves those problems using the decentralization, openness, speed, and low TX fees of the TRON blockchain to provide users a much fairer, more accessible, and more fun experience. We analyzed the extremely fast growing pace of the betting industry, especially sports betting which has revenue worth tens of billions of dollars and is expanding at 10% projected CAGR into 2025, concluding that it was the perfect industry to expand and attract more users to TRON.
Currently, users can bet testnet tokens on their favorite NBA teams’ upcoming games; we wanted to launch with sports betting because it is the most rapidly growing part of the betting industry. We will not only expand into other sports (football, soccer, hockey, and anything else users have a demand for) but also all areas of betting entertainment, including prediction markets, table games like poker, and more. Our focus is on providing the best quality betting and prediction related entertainment: we promise to always maintain the option for users to use real or test tokens, so users don’t need to worry about spending real money.
Project Test Instructions: Using TronLink, create a Nile testnet wallet and connect to the app. You can now bet on any games using the game ID with an amount in TRX.
