Is There A Future for Blockchain In Gaming?
With so much historical focus on blockchain only in reference to its use to support cryptocurrency, its potential value for other gaming applications has been overlooked. This webinar will explore how Blockchain could be used to help gaming regulators streamline the licensing process, its potential use of smart contracts to permit more efficient handling and storage as well as an audit trial of transactions, its potential use as a payment processing platform and more. During the hour, the panelists will have an open and frank discussion that will illustrate the potential of Blockchain beyond its genesis as a cryptocurrency.
