Title (EN) COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM USING BETS
(FR) SYSTEME DE COMMUNICATION METTANT EN OEUVRE DES PARIS
Abstract:
(EN) A computer system that allows people to place (3), accept (4) and settle (6) bets for the purpose of communicating. The system cuts out the middlemen, sometimes referred to as the bookmaker, allowing bettors to bet with each other directly. In addition to allowing people to place, accept and settle bets, the system enables people to settle disputes and change bets. It also allows people to place special types of bets for the purpose of demonstrating probability and quantity estimates. The system also allows people to link bets to ordinary statements (7) that are also entered into the system.
(FR) Système informatique permettant aux gens d'engager (3), d'accepter (4) et de régler (6) des paris à des fins de communication. Le système supprime l'intermédiaire, parfois appelé le preneur de paris, et permet aux parieurs de parier directement entre eux. Non seulement le système permet aux gens d'engager, d'accepter et de régler des paris, mais aussi de trancher les litiges et de modifier les paris. Il leur permet également d'engager des paris spéciaux dans le but de faire des estimations probabilistes et quantitaves. Ce système permet enfin d'associer des paris à des instructions ordinaires (7) également introduites dans le système.
