In 2021, gambling regulators around the globe ordered licensees to pay fines or financial settlements totalling almost €50m.
These stemmed predominantly from operators failing to properly apply safer gambling protocols and failings in know your customer (KYC) and anti-money laundering (AML) practices. Blockchain could prove an answer to these recurring problems.
Blockchain-backed solutions can create a stored log of player data, allowing for closer analysis of their behaviour and spending, to prevent customers from gambling unsustainably and to assess their affordability. Both are critical to maintain safe and sustainable gambling environments.
Furthermore, blockchain allows operator to enhance their KYC solutions, ensuring casino and sportsbook websites are not accessed by minors or excluded players.
Unfortunately, blockchain technology and the range of use cases are not yet widely understood by businesses, including across the gaming industry. This webinar aims to showcase the possibilities it offers.
