The Open Championship returns to Carnoustie for the eighth time this year as golf’s greatest tackle the most feared course on the rotation. Padraig Harrington won the last time the Claret Jug visited this part of the Scottish coast in 2007 and it was also the stage for Jean Van de Velde’s collapse in 1999, which ended with the Frenchman barefoot in the Barry Burn.

At CoinRoster users from around the world use a global currency (bitcoins) to play fantasy sports on the same platform. We are based in Toronto and work from a co-working space at WeWork. As a Junior Developer, you will be free to work at our office location or to work remotely with regular in-person reviews & coaching. Our management style is focused on meeting the goals of CoinRoster, while also providing our team with an environment where they can learn and grow.

Its been a long summer, but now CoinRoster daily NHL fantasy begins tonight!
This season, we’re running daily fantasy contests on early games, and if there’s enough interest, we will also post late games. The format will be the same as last season, scores are based on points, and users can draft an unlimited number of rosters with an unlimited number of players, as long as they stay within the salary cap.
We’re setting draft prices based on historical points per game for this season. So an obvious strategy is to find players that are likely to perform above their average on any particular game. Good luck!
