About


Dear Investors, We present to you, the project "Chess Rate". This is the most interesting game since ancient times - chess, in a new format. Now you can get not only the pleasure of the process and communicate with friends around the world, but also earn money without leaving home. No kidding. Everything depends solely on your intellectual abilities. The rules are simple: you need to win a regular chess game to get from $ 1 to $ 100
immediately!


1. Register with Chess Rate.
  
2. Add funds for playing and betting.
 
3. Play Chess or make bets on other games.
 
4. Win money!

That’s simple! To register with Chess Rate, you can use your current email address to sign up, create a login and password or login via Facebook account on your computer, phone, or tablet. Provide Visa, MasterCard, or PayPal to refill and withdraw funds. DEMO version is available with a virtual $100 to practice on. For casual games, the ELO rating system is mandatory (the method of calculating the relative strength between the two participants).


The cost of each new game is only $2. You can withdraw funds to your account with at least $50 balance. ALL the winnings are yours! There are also discounts for regular participants and a special account status that will allow you to play in this mode without paying each chess game separately for:
  
$20 - 3 days
$50 - 7 days
$100 - 30 days 


There are three game modes that you can choose before searching:

1. Classic mode: 1 to 60 minutes per chess move

2. Rapid: the duration of the game from 10 to 60 minutes

3. Blitz: no more than 1 minute per chess move

4. Your potential opponent will be selected randomly. The program uses the ELO rating system to search for an opponent based on your playing level.

5. We also decided to introduce ability to watch other people chess games. The spectators can bet from $1 – 100 during the first 10 moves of the game and earn the money too.

You can choose your zone of comfort rates before searching for an opponent: ($1 - 5, $10 - 20, $50 - 100)

The “White” player has the advantage of betting first, while the “Black” player has opportunity to counter. After the bets between “White” and “Black” agreed upon, the game will start.

During the game, the bet cannot be changed.

Continues internet connection is required to play the game!

If the player is disconnected from the internet during the game, he will have an opportunity to reestablish internet connection to avoid technical defeat. The time allowed to reestablish internet connection is 10 minutes!

Your profile will reflect the number of wins, draws, defeats, and disconnections.

During the game, you can communicate with your opponent via game messenger. The messenger can be minimized or turned off if desired. Your account may be locked for inappropriate language usage or gamesmanship. In case of the draw, the player won't loose the placed bet and the money will remain on the player's account. Upon the end of the game, you can also offer your opponent to play again.

In the application, it is planned to create customization (various visual changes) of chessmen, boards and animations that you can buy for the domestic currency.

  • Played games you can view for detailed analysis of the game.  
  • The localization is made in two languages: English, Russian.  
  • The application will be developed for devices on the Android platform.
  • In the future, the application will be expanded for devices on the platforms IOS, Windows, Mac.  
  • We are waiting for your suggestions for the improvement of the project.

Risks and challenges

Risk of unsustainable user growth

On the opposite end of the spectrum, we find another challenge: What happens if too many people start using your app? What if it takes off faster than you could ever expect? You could be stuck supporting hundreds of thousands of users. Are you prepared for that?

“A small dev team may create an app that is then used by thousands or even millions of people,” Abinash Tripathy, CEO and cofounder of Helpshift. “Providing service and support to rapidly growing numbers of end users becomes completely unscalable (*and costly*), which can result in angry or confused end users who either leave a negative App Store review and/or delete the app (according to Flurry, a majority of app users churn within 90 days). As with any new technology, internal apps create new burdens for IT to help users individually when they’re having trouble. Some solutions for both internal and external apps include automating the service and support process by creating custom FAQs, utilizing shared inboxes, bulk actions, and integrating in-app help desks into the app.”
