Every time I see the hysteria over large lottery pots it reminds me that there is an opportunity for a global cryptocurrency to absolutely smash all records, and corner the market as a FAR less expensive, and FAR greater reward, lottery. It wouldn't happen over night, but with each new record high would come more publicity, and incentive for people to use it. The fact that it could pay out all, or most, of the money is something states aren't willing or able to compete with.
I don't want anyone to pay the idiot tax, and I don't want to fund the perpetual killing/enslaving of people. A crypto lottery could put a dent in the violence.
I originally thought that a raffle DAC/DAO could be made where it not only functioned like a typical CC, but regularly (preferably when the most people on the planet were awake simultaneously) it would pay something like 99% of the total pot to one of the addresses that paid in at random (I figured that 1% would go to incentivize the resources for the network). I don't know if Safecoin could work the same way technically, as it wouldn't be as simple as knowing each address that paid in, but it sounds to me that the small % that went to the network would work even better in Safecoin, as it would just become non-existent, and become available to be earned again at whatever pace resources/product/services were provided the network.
This was the first concept I imagined as a DAC. Then it occurred to me that if an already existing CC could incorporate a trustless raffle like this, even with paying out 100% (or maybe especially) it could be worth it just for PR/adoption. Nowadays I don't care about any other project (or I should say, I don't have much hope for any other project), and so I hope this is something that could be provided on the SAFE network.
edit - Just came across this.
