In this age of vaporware tokens and spacious talk of “ecosystems” and “architecture,” it’s rare to find projects that have tangible products that have practical use cases and can in fact be used today. FunFair Technologies is one such project in that it has games you actually play and a coin that has a clear, comprehensible function. The FunFair Token (FUN) is utilized as a currency which powers the FunFair blockchain casino platform. Unlike the usual garbage apps or games associated with altcoin projects, which are shoddily thrown together merely for the purpose of creating an illusion of “use cases,” FunFair games are actually high quality and legit. The team is comprised of experienced individuals with track records of creating successful games. For example, FunFair Group Chairman Jez San—through his previous company Argonaut Software—was involved in the creation of the Super FX chip used in iconic SNES classics like Star Fox (a game which Argonaut Software also had a role in co-developing).
One of the major selling points that FunFair Tech likes to emphasize is that their games offer a greater degree of transparency and fairness to the player than those of traditional casinos. I’m not knowledgeable enough on a technical level on the subject of casinos or oddsmaking to credibly evaluate those claims. However, I did experiment and play some of their CasinoFair games. To my surprise, I promptly won 119,000 FUN betting on a long shot horse in their horse racing game, RACEDAY Horses, my very first time playing. I didn’t fare so well at Fergus O’ Fun’s Shamrock Riches, but let’s not talk about that. The games are fairly creative and entertaining, without being needlessly elaborate. One thing I would like to see is a simple, retro 1970s style slot machine game. I think it would be a good fit.
As far as an investment, I won’t say whether I think FunFair tokens will go increase in value, though they are currently trading at an attractive price. I did purchase a decent-sized bag of them. If nothing else, they can certainly be used. Occasionally you run into people who are bitter about this token, because they bought at .10 or .30 when it had a parabolic run back in 2018, and they ended up selling at a loss. FunFair’s project itself though seems pretty viable to me. The main obstacle the company is facing right now is the unsustainably high gas fees associated with running on the Ethereum blockchain network. The company is exploring a number of solutions to this problem, and whichever option they choose will be a factor in the project’s long term fate. I’m confident they’ll be able to overcome the “gas fee” issue. So many crypto projects are struggling with this problem that I feel like a resolution is almost inevitable.
It’s never a good idea to get too “attached” to a particular cryptocurrency, but I have to say that FunFair tokens are a personal favorite of mine to hold. If you were to look at comparably priced coins that once had parabolic runs, how many are tied to projects with actual still-existing products and how many are associated with projects that are defunct and have been completely abandoned by their teams? As always, do your own research. I personally don’t mind gambling on FunFair. It might be a long shot, but getting there is half the fun.
