2022 was a great and productive year for the InPoker project, packed with many exciting events and releases. Our team never stops when it comes to improving the platform, adding new features or organizing exciting events for our users. This year wasn’t an exception — before we step in 2023, we are happy to look back at everything that happened over the last 12 months.
March 31st marked a new and exciting chapter for the project after InPoker was granted a gambling license by Curacao to conduct online gaming operations using crypto. The license approval allows the team to deploy a variety of financial tools for our players such as the long-awaited Deposit and Withdrawal facilities. The features add exciting dimensions to online gaming as they provide players with more freedom to choose from a wider range of action-packed tournaments with low or high stakes and more lucrative rewards. This goes hand in hand with our recent restructuring of the tournaments betting structures and introduction of antes for all our games. These updates have proven to be hugely popular so far as they promote fair play and make the gaming experience more exciting and action-packed, and will be attractive to many professional players as they join more paid tournaments.
At the start of Phase 2 of the project, we have updated the website, platform and our logo. The new InPoker logo as well as the platform redesign offer simplified forms with more emphasis on function, allowing our players to focus on what’s important and removing the distracting clutter from the interface.
Rakeback functionality was added to InPoker Dashboard allowing users to increase their rakeback rates by up to 50%.
The launch of the Affiliate Program gave agents the opportunity to earn on our platform for introducing new players to a safe and ultra-modern online poker environment. The onboarding only requires answering a simple questionnaire and the program is available to everyone who wants to get additional income. InPoker provides all registered participants with an access to a personal dashboard to keep track of all the users and earnings.
Rakeback system launch allowed users to stake their INP tokens to increase the rakeback rate. Users are entitled to a set rakeback rate for as long as they keep their tokens staked. Users have the option to increase the rates by staking INP tokens in the Vault. The rakeback rate can go as high as 50%.
Cash Games and Spin & Moon have been added to the platform alongside Cash Games Weekly Leaderboard with a 2000 BUSD prize pool.
InPoker mobile apps for iOS and Android became available for download from the InPoker website. The apps provide a very fast and convenient online poker experience. Desktop clients for Windows and macOS were released earlier in June and come with additional functionalities not available on the web-based software.
The new and improved InPoker Dashboard with the long-awaited Cashier module allows all registered users to instantly deposit funds for participating in various tournaments and withdraw their winnings at the click of a button!
One of the biggest news in July was partnership with Asian Poker Tour and the launch of a series of APT Vietnam and Philippines satellites where users can win seats at the APT tournaments..
InPoker placed the burn counter on the main InPoker website where holders and investors can view the amount of burned tokens in real time. InPoker periodically burns INP tokens received from various income streams in order to ensure price stability and create a continuous price growth pattern, which will attract more interest in the crypto space and will lead to steady growth in the token’s ecosystem. InPoker always takes initiative to work toward a sustainable INP token economy and full transparency.
The new InPoker Dashboard update added one of the most requested features from the community: NFT trading. InPoker Marketplace is part of the InPoker Dashboard and an online platform where NFTs can be purchased, registered and now listed for sale.
Users can stake their INP tokens to increase the rakeback rate. Users are entitled to a set rakeback rate for as long as they keep their tokens staked. Users have the option to increase the rates by staking INP tokens in the Vault. The rakeback rate can go as high as 50%.
InPoker launched a user referral program whereby all registered users can earn continuous rewards by inviting new players to the platform. InPoker referral program is particularly attractive as it is not a one-time fee for introducing new players but a continuous revenue stream whereby users receive 30% of the rake generated by the new users as long as they keep playing.
Dashboard update added the tool to use any NFT from their collection as an avatar on the platform. The process of adding an avatar requires users to connect the wallet with digital assets and pick the image to be shown as a profile picture. The system scans the wallet for NFTs on BSC, Polygon and Ethereum blockchains.
The integration between InPoker and Polygon was completed, allowing the growth and development of the InPoker platform and bringing many major upgrades to the financial tools and the overall user experience. Polygon scaling solution aims to improve transaction speed and lower gas fees by reducing complex transactions on the blockchain.
The updated roadmap for Q1 2023 included the launch of DeKings NFT collection, P2E+ games, bridge of INP token to Polygon, improved dashboard and gaming experience, better exposure on the global market and more.
One of the biggest and game-changing developments has been partnering with various blockchains and integrating them to the platform, allowing users to deposit and withdraw their preferred currency at the click of a button. These integrations provide unbelievably convenient user experience and present poker players with the most user-friendly cutting-edge financial tools unavailable elsewhere.
For a long time since the launch, InPoker has been operating exclusively on the BSC network, and we have subsequently integrated the Polygon blockchain and recently the Ethereum blockchain, allowing users to easily deposit and withdraw all the tokens on the network. Part of the initiative to make InPoker the largest multi-chain online poker platform title.
InPoker has been conducting periodic token burning operations for over a year, and upgraded the manual process of burning the accumulated weekly tokens to an automated mechanism, whereby the smart contract performs burning operations every day at random times.
Biggest events of 2022
InPoker held a series of InPoker Elite exclusive WSOP satellites for the NFT holders allowing players to compete for a seat at the World Series of Poker Main Event worth $10,000.
Throughout the year InPoker added many new poker formats including PKO, KO and Spin & Moon, as well as a big variety of new tournaments and weekly leaderboards. In November, leaderboards became daily, allowing even more users to participate any time.
New weekly tournament series titled Sunday CryptoMillion was added in November with a generous 1,000,000 INP GTD prize pool, and being a builder series, it’s up to users to grow the total prize pool even bigger.
DeKings collection was launched on 23 December 2022 replacingElite NFTs as InPoker membership token. Elite holders were able to swap their NFT for two DeKings NFTs. DeKings is a collection of poker themed NFTs that grant access to exclusive members-only benefits and a P2E game. The collection is available on various markets including tofuNFT and OpenSea.
DeKings P2E game became available to beta testers, allowing users to experience the benefits of owning the NFT, and being able to rent or loan their NFTs to other users in return for rewards.
