All bad things are over
Fomo3D has been widely agreed, it was an extremely doubtful game from a perspective ethics, drawing on the greed of others to create an ever-larger ethereal vase, whose increasing dimensions would entice others to participate. "Despite the almost certainty of getting a rekt, the gamblers threw their ether into Fomo3D with wild abandon" we reported last month. "The game, like most of the established ponzi schemes, dominated the ethereum network, found traction on 4chan & # 39; s / biz / message board before it became viral."
While respectable figures within the cryptocurrency space were ready to condemn the game and others like him, as Proof of Weak Hands, they were also attracted to it as observers. His nature of car crash, combined with his powerful mixture of game theory, mathematics and psychology, made for an intoxicating concoction that inebriated all those who absorbed it. At its peak, Fomo3D was responsible for 150,000 transactions ethereum per day and the most popular on the net in addition to IDEX. At around 2:00 am this morning, the winning transaction of 10.469 ETH was sent, just under $ 3 million at current prices.
Questions abound in the wake of an oversized payout
The question on everyone's lips in the wake of the jackpot round a claimed one is how? How did this individual succeed where thousands of people had failed before them? It was simply the case that nobody bought a key after them and then the timer could reach the It has been postulated that the winner has somehow managed to fill all the available space in an ethereum block, preventing anyone else from being able to go through a transaction to purchase a key, others believe that the winner may have used a bot to check in some and way the game. Normal congestion of ethanous blockchain has been discounted as an explanation.
A complete post-mortem will probably be made available by some diligent researchers in the coming days. Problems of interest will include finding that the winner was genuine in adhering to the rules and spirit of the game and not being affiliated with his development team. The size ETH 10.469 went to this address which has been extremely active in the last 12 hours, reinvesting most of the ETH in Fomo3D, as well as sending 4,236 ETH to this address , which currently holds over $ 1.5 million of ETH.
Meanwhile, the second round of Fomo3D continues unabated. With FOMO incentive players in new rounds at the first available opportunity to maximize the dividends they can earn, there would seem to be no end in sight; the second round jackpot has already exceeded $ 1.8 million. The FOMO is real, and the game continues until the timer reaches zero again.
