Hope you all have great day.
Here's the question:
I'm trying to build double auction economics game (no code yet, just thoughts). How it should work: people go to a website and type in given password(no registration/username) . then system randomly assign roles (buyer/seller).
Sellers sell the same product.
Each seller has a page with a texbox where he/she puts the price they want to get from the product. Also seller screen has all buyers offers in a real time. (If buyer bought product he/she is removed from this list).
Each buyer has a page with texbox where he/she puts the price they offer for the product. Buyer screen has all sellers prices in a real-time.
For example, if you are the seller and nobody wants to buy you product for $9 you put price of $5 and it is reflected to all sellers/buyers screens.
Technical part. I think it can be achieved using just standard controls of asp.net. I am thinking of two update panels 1st update panel will have all offers/prices from sellers/buyers, second update panel will have textbox and submit button.
It looks to me like a chat. for example http://www.codegod.de/WebAppCodeGod/Chat-with-ASP-NET-and-Ajax-AI
