The summit will feature a Keynote Address by Nevada State Senator Ben Kieckhefer
The Gaming Standards Association (GSA) has announced its first ever conference event: GSA Technology Summit – Focus on Blockchain. The event is scheduled for November 8 – 9, 2018 at the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno, Nev. GSA said that its Platinum member, NOVOMATIC AG, has “graciously agreed to be a top sponsor”. The event also features a keynote address from Nevada State Senator Ben Kieckhefer.
The Blockchain technology – the second phase of the Internet – will have a dramatic impact on our lives and businesses. It is poised to revolutionise data sharing, security and has the ability to provide regulatory authorities with previously unobtainable levels of transparency. Those looking at how this technology will impact the gaming industry will be able to listen to companies that are using the technology today and regulators as they debate the benefits Blockchain provides them.
GSA President Peter DeRaedt said, “We are excited to see a lot of interest in the event. For this unique summit we’ve used our extensive contacts within and outside the gaming industry to bring together speakers and participants who have the experience and know-how to offer attendees a more grounded foundation and education about this technology.”
The event features speakers from: Axes Network, Clear Poker, Dominode, Gioco Ventures LLC, Global Market Advisors, IBM, Innovum Technology, INTEL, Loyra Abogados, McDonald Carano, MELCO Resorts & Entertainment, ORACLE, RedChalk Group, Secure Communication, Berkeley Center for Law & Business, Unikrn.
Blockchain Committee Chair Earle G. Hall said, “Blockchain is the answer to so many of our inefficiencies. It is inherently designed for transparent, secure and distributed information flow. Blockchain will exponentially increase the potential for collaboration, efficiency and connectivity. We look forward to this event and expect to truly educate the industry on this topic.”
