What is SP8DE?

Sp8de is a protocol for blockchain-based platform with multiple features that are essential for the growing blockchain gambling industry and whose solid implementation is lacking in any of the currently existing projects in this space.

The Mechanics of Spade

Spade is the new-generation blockchain-based gaming platform aimed at all the participants of contemporary casino ecosystem. We call it “new-generation” as Spade satisfies all the aforementioned conditions of a ‘proper’ blockchain casino. We build Spade on top of the blockchain called Cardano [24]. The Cardano project itself is a monumental work that embraced the best practices and most far reaching innovations in the area of cryptocurrencies and packed them into a single state-of-art system. It is being developed and maintained by a large team comprised solely of PhDs in the field of programming and cryptography, and experienced engineers.

The Spade Protocol

Before delving deeper into the mechanics of the SP8DE protocol itself, we opt to give a brief overview of the Cardano blockchain and, in particular, the Ouroboros protocol that underpins it. As mentioned above, Ouroboros is the first provably secure POS protocol. All POS protocols rely heavily on the miner selection process whereby a participant is selected at random to sign a block of transactions. In essence it is a POW system without the anchor to the real world — that of processing power. A precondition for an effective POS protocol is the ability to select the next ‘miner’ (or minter using the POS jargon) randomly with the uniform probability which is proportional to one’s stake in the system. The uniform nature of the probability distribution is an essential element: if it can be skewed or biased by any protocol participant, the security is compromised rendering the protocol useless.

Tokens Distribution

There are 8,888,888,888 SPX tokens to ever be supplied. Initially, during the ICO, SPX will be issued on the Ethereum blockchain as ERC20 tokens. More detailed information can be found in the whitepaper and the SPX ICO description. The token sale is organized in 9 phases: one pre-sale and four token sales that are each followed by a jackpot round.
The entire token distribution will be 8,888,888,888 of which 3,655,555,558.4 (41.125%) will be in the form of token sale and 3,455,555,552 (38.875%) will be given as a jackpot to those who have participated in the “token sale” rounds. The rest of the tokens 1,777,777,778 (20%) will remain with the team for the purposes of marketing, advisory, and further development of the project (see the Token Proceeds Utilization section for further details on the use of the proceeds from the token distribution). From Table 2 it becomes clear that the SPX tokens received per ETH are decreasing after each sale while the tokens distributed are increasing following the PreSale stage. A soft cap of US$4,000,000 (four million) is set and the hard cap is ~ 49,033 ETH. The token sale will take place in four rounds and the amounts in each round are as follows:
Everyone who participated in the token sale will be eligible to receive tokens during the jackpots. Table 3 outlines the jackpot distribution schedule:
