What is BallStreet Trading?
BallStreet Trading provides a fun new way to engage with sports. The platform combines the act of sports betting and trading in the stock market to provide one cool experience for fans.
It is a free-to-play, real-time, peer vs. peer contest.
To play the game, you must be watching the event live, so it’s a great alternative to live betting. The markets will trade from 0 to 100 based on the win probability.
At the end of the game, or round of golf, the losing side will have a probability of zero, while the winning probability will be at 100. The goal of the contest is to buy and sell shares throughout the game or event, out-trading competitors with the best P&L.
For example, Dustin Johnson shares may be at a certain point, but then drop after he bogeys a hole. Maybe you think this would be a good time to pick up cheap shares because you think they will eventually go back up.
Pricing is only based on players in the market; no outside sources are affecting the price. If you were to buy Johnson’s shares at 65 and sold them at 75, you would make a profit and build your P&L. The more you build up your P&L, the higher up the leaderboard you will climb.
With some sportsbooks, odds can get kind of confusing. With BallStreet, the percentage is equal to the price. The percentage to win equals the price in the market.
The simple goal of this is to buy low and sell high. If you are a sports fan that loved the stock market, this might be the perfect game for you.
BallStreet is not a gaming website and does not accept bets. So, you can play this game wherever you are located.
You can even link up your account with friends and play against each other as a sporting event is happening. They host markets for several events such as NBA games, NFL games, and MLB games, but also politics, reality TV, and awards shows.
If you are still not sure about how to play, the site has some great training videos and a great Q&A section that will get more in-depth. It even has an audio tutorial called “Trading 101” that will show you everything to look for when competing in the contest.
What are the Chippo prizes?
BallStreet’s friends at Chippo are providing the prizes for this contest on the US Open. The company has created a viral golf game that combines golf with cornhole.
The winner of this contest will receive an entire bundle from Chippo, which includes its signature golf game.
As BallStreet Trading becomes more and more popular, it will have even more prizes to give away for these competitions. Be sure to check back with them for more action and special offers such as this one.
