First event burns 125k $WGR!

For Wagerr's 1st betting event, 125k WGR was removed from the total coin supply. Many bets were placed on Canelo vs. GGG match. The blockchain "burns" all $WGR when bets are placed, then "mints" new WGR to pay winning bets. The underdog won and much more WGR was burned than created: Net deflation.

Canelo vs. GGG match burns 125,000 WGR

The first weekend of action on the WGR betting market saw over 400,000 WGR bet.

Because bets are burned up front and new coins are automatically created (minted) to pay winners, an underdog win for Canelo resulted in a net burn. Anyone can track the net mint or burn on the Wagerr block explorer.

Multiple bets were placed on the Canelo vs. GGG match. The blockchain "burns" all the $WGR when a bet is placed (shown in red). The blockchain "mints" new WGR for the payout (shown in green). The payout to the winning bet was quite small. More WGR was burned than created, resulting in net deflation.
