If you missed the IAGR webinar on 18 April entitled 'Is Blockchain keeping you awake at night? Understanding the risks and opportunities,' the audio files are now available. The webinar was delivered by Christina Thakor-Rankin, Principal Consultant at 1710 Gaming.
The webinar covered security and stability of blockchain and cryptocurrencies and the impact of blockchain on current and future laws and regulations relating to crime, sources of funds and data protection. It posed questions such as where regulation should lie and which authorities are currently regulating cryptocurrencies. It approached the question of whether gaming regulation can be assisted by blockchain technology as well as how 'smart contracts' work in an online gaming environment.
