If we can't actually put ATS in our portfolio, how about some in house fun.
I think we need some sort of wagering system within the ATS boards that we can use our points with.
It would be entertaining to be able to place a bet in a pool, or make a bet between two members. Members could even suggest different pools to set up
and we could buy a ticket on the outcome with the points we have in our acct.
Say 50 or 100 points per bet.
Each member could be limited to a couple entries so that it's fair to members with few points, but it buys them a chance to make a lot.
I don't see that the house would need to take a cut, and the total points in the pool would go to the winners.
We could bet on the outcome of elections.....
We could bet on the date we make contact with aliens....
We could bet when and where the next major quake will happen....
No money would ever change hands, but it would give members something to do with all the points we gather.
