John Caldwell, a former director of PokerStars, and Bob Williams, a former executive of Full Tilt Poker, have teamed together to build an innovative poker platform based on non-fungible tokens (NFT) and artificial intelligence (AI). The eagerly awaited website, PokerAces, is designed to meet the demands of recreational gamers seeking a more welcoming gaming atmosphere free of professional players, bots, and real-time gaming assistance software.
PokerAces is prepared to provide speedier and more interesting poker.
The new initiative will therefore largely target casual players who have voiced their displeasure with the usage of bots and real-time help software, as well as the abundance of high-level professional players in the sector. The combination of all these factors makes poker play uncomfortable for recreational players.
The 888 brand said earlier this year that it has recovered about $300,000 from bot accounts in 2021. The sum taken from bot accounts during this particular year was the largest ever.
With the aid of AI-designed poker bots, PokerAces hopes to bring all interested players to speedier and more exciting poker games. The PokerDNA will be incorporated into the bots’ NFT information, giving them unique gameplay approaches.
During poker races, they will compete against one another for actual cash on behalf of their owners. This will contribute to leveling the playing field more. In no more than three minutes, a tournament with 1,000 bot players will reach the finals. In contrast, it currently takes a few hours to reach the same stages in standard online poker rooms with real-life players. The owners of the bots will eventually have to seize control of their bots in order to start competing for large payouts.
Good Bots and a Mix of Skills
The top players will need to combine their poker prowess with their aptitude for selecting the best bot companions. Players that own or hire NFT bots are eligible to participate in the poker races. As a result, they will also be able to develop more exciting chances for NFT collectors to amass tokens and other precious objects. In the following months, the platform will begin selling poker bot NFTs. The actual platform is nearly ready to go live in the third quarter.
Williams and Scott White, the chairman of Parlay Games, joined forces with the former director of PokerStars’ pro and celebrity marketing to start the software business i3Soft. The foundation of the brand-new NFT poker project is i3Soft. The PokerAces platform is currently being developed by close to 40 employees. Eight months ago, Caldwell and Willians were attempting to address the issue of “real-time assistance and other software tools,” which they believed would be “killing online poker.” This is when the first concept was conceived.
“The time and money of recreational gamers” would be respected in the new poker game, according to the pledge. A poker Hold’em game powered by AI will be the first game to be offered on the platform. PokerStars PokerStars acquired an Ontario poker license in July. In the same month, Erick Hollreiser, another ex-executive, bought a poker news website and declared he was starting Triple Barrel Media Limited.
