White paper


Throughout human history, gambling and betting have always attracted people and have eventually been integrated Into our culture. Long ago the first bets used to be made verbally and were a kind of proto-smart contracts. Betting and risking were deemed rather noble adventures since the obligation to fulfill the conditions revealed the honor and reliability of a person.

Today, people take advantage of the digital era and usually place wagers online. However, centralized companies mostly control this market. These large businesses through their great capabilities often abuse the trust of users and manipulate the pool of the users’ funds taking the lion's share of the profits. Therefore, it is almost impossible for a new player to enter this business.

At the same time, the drive for risks is inherent in the very nature of people. Modern technologies allow a transparent and open betting market. The Polyway project is committed to disrupting existing paradigms. With WEB3 revolutionary capabilities, we strive to create a decentralized platform and ecosystem based on the principles of cooperation and fairness. We give people the opportunity to manage the project and participate in profit distribution.

Blockchain technologies keep gaining their importance, changing traditional approaches to finance, betting, and predicting. Meeting the needs of people, Polyway offers a unique blockchain-based betting and wagering platform where tech innovations and gamification merge into one solution.

Our main goal is to create a unique environment where users can interact, predict, bet on matter-to-them events, and make wagers with their peers. Through blockchain and smart contracts, we bring security, transparency, and decentralization to the world of betting.

It is a fun betting experience that transcends traditional platforms. Polyway opens for gamblers the door to acting as both bettors and bookmakers creating a dynamic and interactive ecosystem.

Public Betting Events

Public betting events are one of the key Polyway features. It allows our users to create and participate in a wide range of events to bet on, from sporting ones to political elections and world events. Any newsworthy event throughout the world can be turned into a bet. A huge variety of bet-worthy subjects attracts a huge audience with different interests and makes the whole gambling process fun and exciting.

How Public Betting Events Work

Event Creation: Any user can create their own betting event. This could be anything from predicting who would be the Oscar winners to whether aliens will invade humanity the next month. The event creator (bookmaker) specifies the bet description, different outcomes and odds for each outcome encouraging other users to place their bets. The event creator also adds liquidity to ensure payouts to bettors. When creating an event, the bookmaker is free to decide on the probability of each outcome and offer own odds.

Betting: Users can view open events and select which one to place their bets on. They can choose one of the available odds offered by the event creator. Users can also add their liquidity to the existing odds or create their own odds on the outcomes offered by the event creator. Event creators (bookmakers) receive additionally 10% of amount of commissions charged to liquidity providers involved in the events in case of their winning and payed to the platform. This will make the betting line wide and varied.

Users have the ability to create limit orders with their desired odds and own liquidity, while bookmakers can accept these bets. This process forms the order book and enables real-time trading.

Voting and Results: Upon an event completion, UMA oracle starts to determine the event outcome.

Public Event Mechanism

Let's take a closer look at the mechanics of public events.

Smart contracts are responsible for creating bets, adding liquidity, new odds, distributing payouts and commissions. We use the European odds metric system.

Users can act as a bookmaker accepting bets against themselves, or as a bettor.

A bookmaker plays against the users, so do the users against the bookmaker. As a bookmaker, the user creates an event, provides its description, adds possible outcomes, and specifies the date and time when the event to be ended. For each outcome, he/she shall set his/her own odds and add liquidity, so to secure with own funds a possible payout to other bettors who placed bets on his/her event.

Gamblers can see possible outcomes of the event, odds, and available liquidity. Available liquidity is the maximum amount that can be bet on each odd. When creating an event, the bookmaker provides liquidity for each of the odds with its own funds. If the bookmaker wins, he/she takes the funds of the users who placed their bets on the event. If bettors win in any of the outcomes, they take the bookmaker's funds in that outcome. Available liquidity formula is SUMM/(K-1), where SUMM is the bookmaker's funds contributed for the given outcome. For example, the bookmaker contributed 1,000 USDT for a certain outcome and set x1.2 odds, therefore the available liquidity will be equal to 1000 USDT/(1.2-1) = 5,000 USDT. This is the maximum amount allowed to be bet by gamblers. In case of winning, bettors can return their funds and win 1,000 USDT from the bookmaker, 5,000 USDT * 1.2 = 6,000 USDT (5,000 their own funds and plus 1,000 USDT from the bookmaker). If the bookmaker wins, he/she takes 5,000 USDT from the users (if the maximum sum was bet).

The higher the odds, the more liquidity is needed to support it. For example, the bookmaker set a x5 odds for the outcome and allocated 1,000 USDT to back it. In this case, according to the above formula, the maximum available betting pot equals 1,000 USDT/(5-1) = 250 USDT. By betting 250 at x5 odds, the user can take 1,250 USDT in case of winning (250 own funds and 1,000 the bookmaker’s collateral). If the bookmaker wins at such odds, he/she wins 250 USDT of the user and return own collateral of 1,000 USDT.

There may be situations when only a part of a bookmaker’s liquidity has been placed. Available not-placed liquidity to be returned to the bookmaker who can at his/her discretion either redistribute it to other outcomes or withdraw any moment.

If an event is interesting to users, they can add their liquidity in their favor to the bookmaker’s existing outcomes and odds and thus increase available maximum betting pot on a specific outcome. If a user who added liquidity wins then he/she will get the winning amount as a bookmaker.

For existing outcomes users can create new odds with their own liquidity. For example, the user believes that the probability of an event differs from the odds that have been set by the bookmaker, so the user can create new own odds for the event. This mechanics allows saturation of the line with a large volume of funds.

The bookmaker can permit or prohibit adding liquidity to his/her odds and outcomes for the created event. Upon permission, the bookmaker can receive additional rewards from commissions on the volume of funds added by other bettors. This option encourages bookmakers to create interesting and well-thought events and outcomes to attract liquidity from other users.

At any time, the bookmaker can stop the event, take the unused available liquidity, or create new odds. Liquidity that has been matched by gamblers cannot be taken. After voting and approval, it will go to the winner.

Private Betting Events

Private betting events are one of the main features of the platform allowing users to create and participate in events granting access to a certain limited audience. This option allows creating unique and private betting scenarios for numerous betting opportunities and interaction with friends.

Our platform allows private events with own rules and tailored user scenarios. Scenarios can be adapted to any interests and preferences making betting activity a means of social interaction.

For bloggers and influencers, our private bets are an effective and fun way of interacting with their audience.

Private betting events on our platform provide endless opportunities for creativity, competition, and social engagement.

Wagers and bets between friends, peers, a team member, individual challenges to a specific person or the whole community – all these can be realized through smart contracts on our platform.

Private Betting Events Mechanism

There is a private wager between peers with two or more outcomes with proportional distribution of liquidity. A user creates an event, describes it, sets outcomes and adds liquidity to one of the outcomes. A peer is offered to add liquidity to his/her own outcome. The liquidity of both gamblers may be equal or different. If one wins, he or she takes all the liquidity. The betting event creator shall delegate the right to approve the wager outcome to a third party that is trusted by all bet participants. If the subject of the bet is a public and well-known event, the right to approve the outcome may be delegated to the UMA oracle. The number of participating gamblers is not limited; each of them can add their share of liquidity to the outcomes.

For example, Bob, John, and Ted agreed on a bet among themselves who would be fastest to eat 5 burgers. Each of them bets $100, and they chose Katie as a moderator. She was given a $20 reward for her role. The guys had a fun time, Ted was the first to eat the burgers and eventually became the winner. Katie approved the outcome. Now Tadd can withdraw $280 from the smart contract (minus the platform commission) by clicking Claim. The funds instantly arrive in his wallet.

There are also possible events the approval of which is put to voting by a limited number of users. Such a betting event can be secured with a password; then a link to the voting is generated and sent to friends or the involved audience. Voting time can be set optionally from a few minutes to several days. Voting participants can be encouraged with rewards like added in advance liquidity or offering a certain percentage of the winning amount.

There can be challenges to friends and even influencers. A challenge initiator shall indicate his/her friend’s email or Instagram, write what a friend is supposed to do, for example, run 500 meters in 2.5 minutes in a city stadium, set the winning amount, add the necessary liquidity, indicate a third party as an approver, or send a password link for voting to mutual friends. If the bet condition is met, the participant will withdraw his/her winning amount from the smart contract. In this case, he/she will have to connect the platform through email address or Facebook/Instagram account, or any other social network that has been specified in the created event.

Public figures and influencers can challenge each other and set real cash prizes. For their audience they can offer new entertainment like participation in voting; set rewards to their subscribers distributing the winning amount among all participants or a part of them under certain conditions. For example, if there are too many voters, and the pool of rewards is not big, then the rewards distribution can be limited to the first 50 voters and the last 50 ones. These settings are pretty flexible and allow a plenty of custom scenarios.

The organizer of a private betting event can be either the gambler or an independent person.
