How to calculate number of player’s tickets in a round?
TICKETS = (Deposit Tickets) + (Hold Tickets) Deposit Tickets = (Deposit Amount) x (Deposit Multiplier) (*) Deposit Multiplier = 50
Hold Tickets = (Hold Duration) x (Hold Amount) x (Hold Multiplier) (*) Hold Multiplier = 10 Hold Amount = balance of player in the 1st deposit (include player’s balance in the Auto Pool) Hold Duration = (end block of the round - current block) / (end block of the round – start block of the round) (*) Deposit Multiplier & Hold Multiplier are adjustable parameters and can be change in the next rounds if necessary.
At the end of the round - round state is End, balance of players will be scanned again. If the balance is lower than Hold Amount, then Hold Tickets will be set to zero. This is the penalty for player who wants to sell the token. It gives people an incentive to hold tokens for keeping their tickets, so they get more chance to win till the end of the round. As you can see, you can get the maximum Hold Tickets by joining the round soon and hold as much token as possible.
