At this time only the amount of tickets is the only factor that calculates the chance of winning… this makes it easy for whales to reap big rewards each time in almost every draw…
Now I have an idea to make a scale of winning fairer for everyone
And that makes it more interesting for people to join PoolTogether (more win change in the longer term)
The Idea and solution
Let’s say everyone starts at 50% of their tickets are eligible for the price
now they win. In the next round their total amount of working/active tickets (for the win chance is lowered) by 10%, although it can also be 1% or 5% I personally think 5% is the best
And this is repeated each time they win. And if they lose they get 10%
For example, a player won 2 times after each other
50 - (5x2) = 40%
so the player’s active tickets are only 40% of their ticket total ticket amount
But what if the person still wins if their value is then 10% or 5% ? Maybe making a 1/2 split each time…… 10, 5, 2.5, 1.75 0.875 and then 0,4375 and further and further
And still the whales will have more chance to win than the average other user.
Now if they didn’t win their win chance is added again with 1% or 5% depending on the choice and if it’s under 10% or not… if it’s under 10% then doubled one time. Or just reset to the 10%
Also, it is an idea to have people need to build up their win factor each time when they enter a pool (more loyalty to the pool)
and to make it unique to each user (no multiple addresses) that want to abuse the system I suggest looking at BrightID I explain a bit in this post
Also, the other post I made is interesting for creating pools for people with less wealth or who just started with some requirements and restrictions.
This is what I have in mind. I would love to hear from people what they think of it.
It’s just to make it possible to have fair multiple winners. And no repeating winners in a dynamic system while keeping big players still have a higher chance to win then lower
quick note I call whales big players and not investors… since this is a saving game and not a saving investment
