Big Bits is determined to introduce blockchain based card breaks. The plan is to eventually create a smart contract to collect group participant fees, randomly assign particpants into their card sorting placement and finally record any other meta data such as hits, # of cards and so on. To get started, we are going to do some breaks to get a foot into card breaking online and have some fun with the community we’ve built through Big Bits. Trading card hobbies and also their card breaks can range from being rather inexpesnive and just for fun, or rather expensive and done in the pursuit of drawing very valuable cards to either keep and showcase, or sell for a large profit.
