DotBlu, the betting site that let users place fake bets on various subjects ranging from sports to technology has lost the battle to stay online. The site had quite renowned backers including the likes of Kevin Hartz, Jawed Karim, Keith Rabois but it appears that wasn’t enough to keep it going and all it reads now is just a short note informing members about its closure. I guess everyone is used to it; the idea of certain startups just failing to lift off.
