    Hello NHZ community,

    I’ve been trying to think of creative ways of using the NHZ asset exchange, and I was inspired by some of the things that are going on over at the NXT AE. In particular, the prediction markets.

    The nice thing about NHZ is that for now, transactions are dirt cheap, but it has all the capabilities of NXT.

    So I wanted to float this idea out there: if I came up with a simple world cup betting game, with say a 10% house edge, and I financed issuing the necessary assets and setting up the order books, would the community be interested? It could be a fun way to introduce outsiders to the power of the AE.

    I’d also want to be as transparent as possible with the bettors’ funds; people would have to trust me not to take the money and run. I’m open to suggestions of how to instill trust in me.

    We could of course offer to escrow the venture

    Excellent, I would very much appreciate that. How would that work?

    Would the easiest thing just be for me to put down a deposit with you before betting starts, and always to be sure that my deposit with you is significantly higher than the total collected bets? Then if I disappear, you can simply pay winning bettors out of my deposit.

    That’s a good idea
