Team Techracers recently flew back from London after attending a leading industry event. Any guesses here? We participated in ICE totally gaming- An event that represents the entire gaming industry and covers land-based as well as the online channels across multiple sectors.

Our experience at ICE 2018 had been amazing. In the due course of merely 3 days, we met many people, leaders and influencers from across the iGaming and blockchain industry.

Initiating our ICE journey, we started our first day with pre-planned meetings and interactions with people coming on our stand. While we had great interactive sessions with the people we planned to meet, there were many others who stopped by our booth intrigued by the term “Blockchain”. Being at the right place, we answered their questions and doubts and explained the value of blockchain for their businesses.
On day 2, we had two things to focus on- exhibiting booth and speaking platform. Mr. Ankur Maheshwari, our director of research spoke at ICE VOX which commenced at around 10 AM. While speaking as a panel member on the topic of “Harnessing a Hybrid Solution: Applications of Blockchain for Traditional Online Operators” the below points were also covered:
- Accepting crypto payments: quicker pay-ins and settlements versus a risk of hacking
- Crypto pay-outs: weighing up increased efficiency against the risk of money-laundering implications
- The challenges of KYC, due-diligence and creating a blockchain that facilitates compliance
- Bookmakers and the future of in-house cryptocurrencies?
Once the speaking session was over, many people came upto Ankur to discuss their business idea and implementation of blockchain technology in it.
The final day was more of a networking and connecting kind of day for us. We met a lot of people who were influencers and industry leaders including but not limited to the legendary personality of the iGaming industry Mr. Stephen Crystal, team members of Gfinity, GamingPlatfrom, Paf gaming, HEROcoin, FunFair, and many other big online & land based casinos from the Latin-American region.
