About

The eSports industry is on a positive trajectory to becoming one of the largest markets we’ve seen in a long time. Personal Wager is positioned to capture a large part of the niche P2P (Player to Player) wagering market.

Personal Wager is a fully operational player to player or head to head wagering system located at www.personalwager.com

As a wager between two players on a game of skill, it is legal in most jurisdictions, including all but 12 USA states, as opposed to internet gambling. Personal Wager is creating its own utility token called Player Won Token (“PWON”) to assist in facilitating the growing popularity of wagering between players around the world.

Traditional exchanges of winnings for a personal wager relied on cash and locally played games. When these wagers were brought to the web, they were hard to fund internationally, as a large proportion of the players still only have cash and as a result, wagers have mainly been created in local currencies, and still with substantial losses due to high FIAT currency conversions. In times of small wagers, it can be difficult to pay the winnings back to the players due to costs, exchange rates, and currency controls.

While we all agree that current payment systems are functional to a degree, some payment systems are not always able to interact with other international payment systems in other countries, due to the type of transaction facilitated. It is also extremely difficult to repay the winnings to the same system, thus the player must buy-in on one system, and receive his winnings on another, resulting in delays on funding to play, and receiving winnings.

No integrated coding

Personal Wager’s “Secret Sauce” allows all users to play ANY game on ANY platform at ANY time, including face to face board games.

ALL EYES ON YOU

Every wager played by Personal Wager participants is recorded in real-time on their report card and is accessible by other members via the blockchain.

OUR 4 KEY VALUES

Personal Wager encompasses four key features to provide users with a truly unique experience:

In addition, registration is free, players can use the platform on mobile, tablet and PC/Apple computers, and players are able to compete on a variety of games on various platforms.

Yes. We’re legit!

The Player Won Token (PWON) is a very simple “utility token” which acts as a stored value for players' transactions facilitated on the platform. As all transactions on the Personal Wager platform are performed using PWON Credits, fees are negligible, and small wagers between players become commonplace while large wagers are not diminished by high withdrawal fees back to PWON.

ICO vs ICO+

Liquidity:

There may not be a market to exchange your tokens at any point in the future.

as a stored value
Coin Value:

There is no value mechanism to provide any benefit to token holders, unless it is a registered security token.

Lack of Market Makers:

Token value of existing ICOs is solely dependant on the development of the project. If there is no nurturing of the community or use cases the token has no value and is doomed to fail.

Failure:

There may not be a completed product/service at the end of the funds.

An ICO+ addresses the issues above without becoming a security.
