Is there any issue with players being able to see each others' Greenback totals?

Virtual Greenback Tracking (and poll!)

Post by staff » Tue Dec 19, 2017 10:37 am

Hey Drifters!

As we've mentioned, we're working on the best way to track your Greenbacks virtually during the break. We wanted to get your opinion on the matter, though -- would you take issue with a system which did not conceal others' Greenback totals when checking the ledger? While we do have some potential solutions that would be able to hide that info, it would be significantly easier both in terms of using and developing this new system if we were able to display all players' totals on a simple spreadsheet, similar to how Rule of Three handles their Buttons.

Please vote on this poll, which will remain open until Dec 26th, and feel free to comment below with (civil) discussion on the matter!

Is there a reason it needs to be done digitally?

There are several benefits to this, from our perspective.
1) Asynchronous tracking. We don't need to be in the same place at the same time to add or remove Greenbacks from a digital tracker.
2) Player interest protection. Digital Greenbacks can't be dropped, lost, stolen, washed, etc.
3) Easy ledger-keeping. We can review changes to the log to confirm whether or not Greenbacks were granted/spent for a given transaction, to prevent double spending or double charging.
