CEEGC2017 Budapest: Jonathan Galea and Eman Pulis to join the Cryptocurrency Talks

Reading Time: 4 minutes

2 August 2017, Budapest: The organizers of CEEGC2017 are are excited to announce two great speakers who will join the Innovation Talks Cryptocurrency panel. Especially since cryptocurrencies and most of all Bitcoin is the hottest topic at this moment.

With all the rumors and debates you could soon be witnessing that your checking account has second account, stocked with an equal amount of a newly created currency. This could happen to many people who hold the bitcoins today.

This is something that need to be taken into consideration, especially that just this week, a new currency called Bitcoin Cash is due to appear, split from bitcoin in a technical maneuver called a “hard fork.” It’s the project of a group that says bitcoin’s keepers are limiting its reach by resisting change.

The creation of Bitcoin Cash is the most striking result yet of a 2-year-old feud over bitcoin’s future. Bitcoin is collectively valued at $47 billion but remains a niche product. Backers of the new currency say it’s necessary if bitcoin is to make a real mark on how the world uses money.

Bitcoin Cash’s confusing origin and name is at the risk of making it harder for cryptocurrency to gain wider acceptance.

Adding to the confusion: Not everyone who holds bitcoin will get an instant stash of Bitcoin Cash today. Some leading bitcoin-storage services have said they won’t recognize the new currency, forcing people to move their business if they want to claim the new variety of cryptocoins.

So, with all this said, is the online gambling industry safe? Will this affect bitcoin gamblers worldwide? It is certainly something to be discussed during CEEGC 2017.

“Innovation Talks – The Cryptocurrency Effect”  panel is scheduled to be held between 12:00 – 13:00 (Budapest Local Time) on the 19th of September (Day 1) during the second edition of the Central and Eastern European Gaming Conference Budapest. (you can view the full agenda here).

The panel will be moderated by Dr. Joseph F. Borg, who is currently a Senior Advisor at a legal firm specializing in Gaming, WH Partners, and a vice president of BitMalta, an association that wants to raise awareness and support for the use of blockchain and cryptocurrencies. Borg’s previous working experience includes the position of Chief Regulatory Officer at the Malta Lotteries and Gaming Authority (just Malta Gaming Authority now).

You can read more about the panel here.

The latest announced speakers of the panel are:

Jonathan Galea (Blockchain & cryptocurrencies lawyer, President of Bitmalta)

Jonathan’s considerable experience in the blockchain sector ranges from a close study on the developing regulation in the area to hands-on experience in the technical and economic aspects of cryptocurrencies, one of the most widely-adopted uses of the blockchain so far. Jonathan’s LL.D. (Doctorate of Laws) thesis was titled “The Effect of Bitcoin on Money Laundering Law”, and being completed in May 2015, it was one of the first ever legal theses on the subject. He has been following developments in the area for four years and moreover has also participated as a speaker in several conferences both in Malta and abroad, covering the legal, technical and economic aspects thereof.

Jonathan’s expertise consists of legal advice on regulatory matters related to blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies in general as well as technical advice on blockchains and platforms built on top of them (from a fundamental perspective). He is an active member in various crypto-communities and is experienced in both the mining and trading of cryptocurrencies.
Jonathan is also the president of Bitmalta, the first non-profit association in Malta dedicated to advocating the blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies with particular focus on the Maltese islands. Moreover, apart from completing various courses related to blockchain technologies and attending various seminars, Jonathan has also successfully completed the “Programming in C” course with Ice Malta, thus giving him further insight on the intricacies of programming languages since C served as a basis for most modern languages.

Casino Slots & Product Focus: Technical Talks Take Centre Stage at CasinoBeats Summit

Published

on

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The visitors of the SBC’s CasinoBeats Summit (23-25 May) can expect a comprehensive examination of the technical aspects of online casino gaming, through expert-led panels covering the latest technologies, game design and mathematics shaping the industry’s future.

Held at Malta’s InterContinental Hotel, the central stage (Conference Room 1) of the event will feature two tracks, each for a day: ‘Casino Slots Focus’ track on Wednesday, 24 May and ‘Casino Product Focus’ track on Thursday, 25 May, providing valuable insights based on years of experience and research.

The star-studded lineup of speakers will include industry creatives and tech-savvy profiles such as CTOs, product specialists, game developers, and casino experts, who will help the audience get a better grasp of the cutting-edge ideas and innovations shaping the future of casino games. Topics of discussion will include creating immersive player experiences, player psychology and game RTP complexities, incentivising players responsibly, new game releases and components, the future role of aggregators, and crash games, among others.

Top industry CTOs will take the stage during the ‘CTO Panel: Integrating Emerging Technologies’ panel session to discuss their plans for incorporating cutting-edge technologies at a time when Meta is working towards bringing VR technology to the mainstream. The operator perspective will be presented by Jacinto Barbosa (CTO, Solverde) and Julian Jares (CTO, Bingosoft), with Clinton Cutajar (CTO, Media Troopers), representing the affiliate view. The panel will be moderated by David Alamango (CTO, Videoslots).

The ‘Game Mechanics – Pushing Innovation vs Going Back to Basics’ panel will offer an inside look into the technicalities of casino games. Top casino game specialists will be posed with the million-dollar question: While other industries (like video gaming) are incorporating new and innovative approaches, traditional fruit slot games remain the most popular in the online casino worlds. Can we strive for more innovation in game mechanics and move away from the basics? Asko Heiskanen (Head of Game Studio, Veikkaus), Elena Shaterova (CCO, 7777 Gaming) and Daniel Eskola (Head of Research & Development, Relax Gaming) will offer their perspectives.

Ending the first day of the conference, the panel Know Your Player – What to Do With All That Data?’ explores how accessible data is analysed for personalised experiences and differentiation in product offerings via the creation of behavioural profiles. Operator representatives Alexandru Ababei (ROW & Canada Campaign Manager), James Zerafa (COO, Winners.bet), and Jennifer Duarte Ceballos (Head of CRM & Casino, Cashmio) will share their insights.

The ‘Crypto vs. FIAT Casino – Is the Gap Narrowing?’ panel will compare traditional FIAT casinos to crypto casinos, as the latter are growing substantially, in terms of reward systems, promotions, game mechanics and compliance. Panellists Lars Rosenberg (CEO, oshi.io), Christoffer Andersson (COO, 500 .casino), Matej Novota (Head of Data and Complaints, CasinoGuru) and Christopher Dalli (CEO, L&L Europe) will discuss which type of casino offers the best player experience. ProdMark 365 Founder Mark Grech will moderate the panel.

Rasmus Sojmark, CEO & Founder of SBC, said: “CasinoBeats stands out as one-of-a-kind event that facilitates targeted discussions on the future of the casino industry and delving into the technical details and innovative thinking behind developing new casino titles in a rapidly growing and competitive landscape. I am impressed with the topics and the speakers on this agenda and cannot wait to welcome some of the savviest tech people in the industry on stage.”

The Conference Room 1 agenda concludes with the ‘Developer Pitch Competition,’ where ten rising studios will battle it out for the newly-introduced ‘Game Studio Spotlight’ award. Each studio pitches their slot game to expert judges after showcasing it to the audience in the game lounge the previous day. The winner, determined by a 50/50 combination of public votes and judge scores, will be announced at the Thursday evening Game Developer Awards (requires a separate ticket).
