MeVu ICO – Peer-to-Peer Sports Betting

MeVu ICO – Peer-to-Peer Sports Betting


Sports betting. It’s a multi-billion dollar global industry that is, unfortunately still shrouded in a bit of grey zone.

If you’ve seen, heard or read about gambling on the Know Your ICO Show (yes, we’ve got an interview on this topic) you’ll know that gambling is a massive industry. Sports betting is part of gambling – and is arguably one of the largest niche’s in the gambling world outside of direct gambling games.

But even in green-lit countries where sports betting is legal, you encounter a wide range of challenges. From sports-books running on centralized servers, to no recourse for consumers if a payout is not made, to no ability to really bet against your peers – the industry is operating on a very outdated process.

Think of the old movies – with sports bookies taking bets on paper and running odds in an old smoke filled room. While it’s not exactly like that – it’s close.

And this is the opportunity that MeVu sees.

Join myself Cahill (sounds like K-Hill) as I chat with Kelvin and Tim, both Co-Founders from MeVu

In Part 1 we cover more than the basic questions, as I just went ahead and asked some of my Part 2 questions. We get into:

  • where the idea came from, and why they decided to jump into this arena
  • why they decided to use Ethereum (Part 2 question typically)
  • how long the team has known each other (Part 2 question typically)
  • data behind sports betting, and the niche they’ve chosen to tackle
  • understanding spots books, I had no idea what they were all about
  • and much much more…

In Part 2 we cover

  • the differentiating factor between MeVu and prediction markets
  • why bets can be placed in Ether compared to using the MeVu tokens
  • why their platform is more similar to Uber than a betting platform
  • what key lessons they’ve learned from advisors
  • and much much more…

Hope you enjoy the interview!
