    Such a great idea!

    For the where to put the money part, I would suggest any other blockchain than Ethereum so as to save the gas fees. Any L2 on Ethereum that everyone is comfortable with and trusts I think should do(maybe Polygon?)

    As for the winner, maybe a spotlight of sorts inside the community?(Community talks, and article interview, etc.)

    My ideas:

    – Buy-in – as we don’t know how much everyone is willing to pay (I would suggest creating a pool about it first). Another idea I had in mind is that the buy-in to be related to the price of STANDARD/ or ILSI ( thus buy-in would be 3 Standard for example, or the 0.5 ILSI – something like that). As we can not buy-in with crypto – it will be the equivalent in EUR/ USD.

    – Where to play? Pokerstars should be the most easier to set-up option.

    – Where to put the money? ( I will research some Web3 options )

    – Where to donate? What to support? – Although it’s a very warm hearted initiative, imo we would use the winnings to promote more the StakeborgDAO focusing on the international community. Maybe we can transform all buy-ins in ILSI/ Standard and then make another Twitter campaign or something similar. In the end it can also be a combination of the two.

    – What to give to the winner? Maybe we can reach out to DubluDe to help us with some artwork and we transform it in an NFT ( in case we find a cheap minting option – maybe Polygon? – but I would have to research this further.

    What do you guys think?

    Really amazing ideas; my opinion is this:

    -we should create a pool for buy in and if we see 2 that there will be 2 groups we can even do 2 tournaments; one for higher buyin and one for lower;

    – if this even will have traction we can then organize a tournament/freeroll each month(freeroll so anyone can participate and maybe winners will take stkeborgDAO merch or ntfs or standard depending on the week and we can do publicity for the community through this)

    -Pokerstars is a good idea since it’s the easiest and if we create a homegame with no direct buyin and only play money anyone can participate regarding where they live

    On the other topics I really agree with @ost, nice job man!

    Chapeau bas sers
    – Pokerstars looks nice and friendly.
    – Pool for buy-in. Knowing that the funds will be put to work on a cause we have, as a starter, a smaller entry. Like this we encourage more people to join. Example: 0.50/1 STANDARD.
    – If we have a pool where we donate it’s not relevant for Pokerstars. There we will have a chips table. So, I propose a different coin than STANDARD because most of us are hodling and not willing to change that.
    – Cause. Debatable short vs long term.
    – Prize. Great ideas so far. NFT, STAKEBORG merchs, article, community interview.

    Hey guys, although I’m not a poker player myself, I really love the engagement and the creativity that you put into this project. Kudos on setting this up.

    While reading your posts, I was thinking that this mechanic could be a nice, playful way to engage and interact with other communities as well. What I mean by this is, at a later stage and if you have fun with this, we could try to organize poker tournaments (or maybe some other online games) with other communities on Twitter. I recently saw a few NFT projects doing this and it could bring some visibility.

    Just thought I’d share this with you in case you see any potential 🙂

    Anyways, have fun! 🙂

    In the future, we can have anything related to this and would be a great way to interact with other communities for sure
