CSC Team to lead panel at CasinoBeats Malta

Recommended Posts

It looks like our fearless leaders will be leading a panel at the CasinoBeats Malta event that's being held next week! 

Quote

The earlier panel discussion considers whether online casino needs blockchain, with contributions from the MaltaGaming Authority and CasinoCoin, among others. (https://www.casinobeats.com/2019/06/10/swintt-sponsors-casinobeats-malta/)

 

The agenda itself doesn't actually mention CSC by name, but the results from the CasinoBeats 100 Club does.

16.45 – 17.15: DOES ONLINE CASINO NEED BLOCKCHAIN?  Soon to be published findings from the CasinoBeats 100 Club suggested that those online casino professionals polled were far from convinced about blockchain’s future role in the sector. Are they right to be cautious? What more can we do? Where are the success stories? (https://sbcevents.com/casinobeats-malta/)


I was actually surprised by the results.  The CasinoBeats 100 Club consists of "an invite-only unpublished list of 100 influencers from across the sector – comprising key executives from operators and suppliers, gaming platforms, marketing agencies, legal and other professionals" (https://casinobeats.com/2019/01/25/giving-readers-a-voice-casinobeats-launches-the-100-club/) and not a single one of them thought that delaying adoption of Blockchain would be harmful to the future of the online gaming sector.  100 influencers... and not a single one of them.  

The actual question posed to these 100 individuals was "“Is the delay in adopting blockchain technology harming the online gaming sector?”

Possible answers included the following:

  • Yes, blockchain is the foundation on which fair and lucrative online gaming operations must be founded in the future
  • Maybe, but not enough people in the sector understand the technology – more education and awareness is needed
  • No, the online gaming sector will be just fine without blockchain

The results were as follows:

  • Yes - 0%
  • Maybe - 51%
  • No - 49%

(https://www.casinobeats.com/2019/06/13/the-casinobeats-100-club-crypto-stigma-holding-blockchain-back/)

I suppose 51% coming in at "Maybe" is better than "No"... but I was still shocked that of 100 individuals that are supposedly prominent figures in online-anything, much less online gaming, not a single one of them thought blockchain will be a key component in the future of the internet.

My hope is that whoever will be leading the CSC team at the event will be able to convince them otherwise!

Great find, thanks!

Interesting not even 1% thought 'Yes' although we have to start somewhere
