London Blockchain Conference: Where iGaming Meets Blockchain Technology
If you are in iGaming, then you will want to attend the London Blockchain Conference at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre (QEII) in the heart of the capital between 31 May 2023 – 2 June 2023.
The iGaming industry is characterised by its rapid growth and tech-savvy platforms; however, it continues to face issues of fairness and trust.
So how does Blockchain help iGaming? Blockchain technology can vastly improve the iGaming industry. With issues like calculating odds, protecting and paying monetary stakes, slow settlement rates and high fees, data protection and digital security player Protection, and Safer Gambling plaguing the industry, Blockchain could be its saviour.
Integrating blockchain technology in iGaming platforms works to alleviate the issues mentioned above. Simultaneously, by establishing transparency and credibility as core components, such offerings enhance the industry’s reputation. The main benefits of using Blockchain include:
- Enhanced safety and security – Security is essential across all sectors, and iGaming is no different. Blockchain technology offers the iGaming industry enhanced safety and security.
- Transparency and provable fairness – One of the biggest challenges facing every iGaming business is the question of trust. Blockchain resolves this by demonstrating a detailed, immutable account of all played games, staked bets and accounts, accessible via a public ledger.
- Speeding up transactions at minimal fees – Players shouldn’t have to wait more than a few seconds for a webpage to load or for a transaction to be processed. Blockchain makes this possible.
- Privacy and anonymity – Most players want themselves and their accounts to remain anonymous and expect confidentiality. With Blockchain, your transactions are untraceable and use a digital footprint, and keys identify users.
- Better odds and return to player – ‘The house always win’. Unlike Blockchain, decentralisation and peer-to-peer transactions are two main features; this increases the odds and the total bet amount.
- Easier auditing processes for regulators – Platform integrations with Blockchain serve operators and regulators in the iGaming. Blockchain was designed to be self-governing.
Join us at the London Blockchain conference and hear from the leading industry figures, including the Malta Gaming Authority representatives, the HM Treasury board, and the head of the Securities and Exchange Commission of the Philippines regarding their country’s Blockchain and Digitization Initiative.
Other key panels of interest include the Future of Blockchain Tokens and Blockchain Venture Capital Investing.
With over 140+ speakers, the three-day conference will be this year’s flagship blockchain expo for enterprise and government and will demonstrate this with insightful and engaging panels, presentations and keynotes.
As the world’s leading technology-focused blockchain event, it aims to provide an avenue to discover the current emerging trends that help bring governments and enterprises onto the blockchain. Attendees can build relationships with influencers, developers and investors in the blockchain space, including iGaming. Attend the London Blockchain Conference and learn how to harness the potential of blockchain technology.

Hipther Introduces Rite NRG and Darek Hiliński
The #hipthers are delighted to introduce Darek Hiliński, Chief Growth Officer of our Right Energy Sponsors for the MARE BALTICUM Gaming & Tech Summit, Rite NRG!
Rite NRG is a Polish-Swedish IT consulting hub, where a close-knit assembly of under 70 experts integrate IT services, delivery consulting, and digital transformation. They foster an analytical approach to guiding businesses through the multifaceted digital realm.
Darek Hiliński is a seasoned Manager with extensive experience in the Technology sector. #Hipther had the pleasure to catch up with him in our previous sold-out Tech Event, the Prague Gaming & Tech Summit 2023 that took place in March, and we were thrilled to discover his contagious positive energy! In this interview, he will share more about himself and Rite NRG – the Right Energy Sponsor for MARE BALTICUM Gaming & Tech Summit!
Hello Darek! Thank you for taking the time to catch up, it’s a great pleasure to speak with you again! Would you take a minute to introduce yourself to our readers in your own words, please?
Hey there! I’m Darek from Rite NRG, and yes, I’ve got the right energy (pun intended).
Technology has always been my playground, from my uni days in Sydney AU to my postgrad adventures in Coventry UK. When I’m not being a full-time super dad to my amazing daughter Roma, you can find me indulging in my passions for riding bikes, making music, surfing and testing my body’s resilience with fasting and icy dips. You know, just keeping things exciting!
What do you do as a Chief Growth Officer in Rite NRG? Beyond job descriptions, what do you consider to be the key points in your work? And what’s your main goal?
I might wear the sales hat, but my true superpower lies in forging human bonds. It’s been my joyride, steering countless thrilling initiatives. Sure, life’s a rollercoaster, but nothing beats authentic relationships.
As we all race through today’s fast-paced market it’s crucial not to lose our grip on core values. So my main focus is on creating something amazing together whenever the time is #rite for both parties! My experience demonstrates that this is the #riteway; however, in the majority of cases, business is propelled by aggressive KPIs. Seizing the opportunity to elevate the human factor, to stand out and be remembered, is essential when the chance arises. That is why I’m really fascinated by the way you pave the ground to keep networking on such a high level during these tech events!
Going back to the big picture and introductions, please tell us more about Rite NRG, the company’s work and objectives.
This is yet another chapter of my life story because, let’s not sugarcoat it, RITE creates a rather unique environment in the IT world. Why? Find me another company that, along with steady organic growth (100% YoY), places such a strong emphasis on culture fit and understanding the values of their business partners. Working in such an environment means we often understand each other without speaking a word. And the best part? Our clients appreciate it, and they rarely drift away. Some do, but most return and value our consultative approach, openness, and unparalleled speed in action. What’s ahead? We’ll maintain our growth trajectory by attracting talents who truly resonate with Rite NRG’s vision for doing business 🙂
What is it that differentiates Rite NRG from its competition? And how does your own work influence that?
That’s an excellent question I’ve touched on earlier. Essentially, we trust that the right attitude, paired with boundless energy and a thirst for self-betterment, creates a powerful blend that exceeds any “delivery” expectation. Sure, others might say the same, but do they deliver? We do! It takes extraordinary precision across the whole “supply chain” but the payoff is phenomenal. As I mentioned in a LinkedIn post, “We are the ones creating music… We perform for every occasion, yet not for every listener.” I’m entirely in tune with Rite NRG’s values, and our collective harmony makes any extra engine oil redundant. Perpetual motion? We’re not there yet… but give us a few years, and watch this space! :))
Tell us more about your work with iGaming and casino companies: your personal experience, the connection of Rite NRG with the sector. What other industries do you cover?
The gaming industry is always buzzing with excitement! We genuinely enjoy the experience and, most importantly, have a fantastic time working on it. Our skills and approach have taken us to the point where we’ve built an iGaming platform for one of Europe’s biggest providers and are now crafting another for the Asian market. Chances are you know these companies quite well 😛
As we cherish diversity, our passion extends also to medtech, fintech, blockchain, IoT, and banking. This is where Rite’s co-founders initially spread their wings and gained the solid experience that propelled the company forward. So yes, from that point onwards, our legacy has resonated more and more.
It’s no coincidence that Monika Szwed, holding a senior business analyst position at Rite, is joining the speakers’ panel in Riga, as I firmly believe that everything starts with a proper understanding and challenging of a client’s vision. Why do we have such faith in this approach? Many clients think that having just an idea and a team is enough, but a thorough business analysis breaks down potential problems into manageable pieces. And you know what? We apply this approach as the starting point for every industry in which we operate!
Closing, how do you see the future in Tech, Gaming and Software Development? What’s more in demand right now in terms of skill set and services, and how do you think this could evolve?
Hmm, I believe AI will have a significant impact on how we, as consumers, perceive the final product and influence it as creators. I feel that the ongoing changes will make human interactions even more important, which I’m quite pleased about because the human factor is crucial, and its further evolution can only be beneficial. Regardless, I still think people will create products for other people, at least on a commercial level 🙂 . As for the competition between AI and humans from a consumer perspective, I believe AI will only further fuel our human creativity.
On a more down-to-earth note, my feeling is that the software development industry will need to become even more personalised and customer-focused in terms of both business ethics and the desire to be more natural in their approach. Rite has been aiming in this direction for quite a few years now!
Thank you so much for your time Darek, and for this opportunity for us and our readers to get to know you and Rite NRG better! We look forward to seeing you in Riga, on 16-17 May!
