Interesting find of early code from 2008. I mean I got to admit I didn't read it myself but the article states that it also included some Poker game.

I really hope the only reason for that was to give ti a first Use-case. A purely electronic currency released as a reaction to the 2007/2008 financial crisis including gambling code. That sounds like a joke.
