Presentation on the overlaps of blockchain technology, cryptocurrency and gambling held at the Institute for Gambling and Society of the Ruhr Universität Bochum
In the event that is held monthly and covers latest topics and research relating to gambling, our co-founder Fred Steinmetz presented on the most important overlaps of blockchain, cryptocurrency and gambling by highlighting the phenomenon of ‘decentralized gambling’, risk factors of simultaneous cryptocurrency trading and gambling, as well as the theoretical concept of a blockchain system dedicated for monitoring payment streams of the gambling industry. The event took place online on 10 June, 2021 and slides are available upon request (live-show not included).
We would like to thank the organizers for the invitation and fantastic event with a great audience and an interesting discussion section. We highly recommend signing up for these events, entitled Forschungswerkstatt, to grasp a comprehensive picture of gambling, its risks and societal relevance, through interdisciplinary research and discussion.
