How is a Blockchain Lottery different?
Amjad Pirotti, my lottocoin.com What if we could take the power of blockchain and use that to make lotteries joyful again. Consider the community lottery held in your local club or town – it’s a means of raising money for a local or shared endeavour - the price is not high and the winnings are very transparent. Of course, the payout tends to be small – a combination of low volume and the desire to fundraise over actually winning vast sums. But what if that model could be twinned with national or hyper-national concepts? What if we could make the lottery fair and still pay out large sums. What if no one owned the lottery and everyone involved stood to gain so that the fundraising and profits were pooled back to the participants. And the participants were the true target recipients of the prize?
Comic Heroes and the Art World
Mike Thompson Mike has been a crayoner all his life; it might even be said he was born with a crayon in his hand. As a self-confessed introvert, Mike played sports in school but came into his own when he had a sketchbook in front of him. He remembers his father bringing home comic books as a reward when he was a child and he would immediately go and begin crayoning in them.
