Ukraine’s National Police nabbed four suspects, who reportedly ran six fake cryptocurrency exchanges in the country. They were arrested last week from Dnipro city, after which their homes were raided, and several computers and smartphones were seized. The police do not have any report on the stolen funds yet.

The alleged culprits lured users by promoting the exchanges with fake positive ratings and online reviews. The police reportedly said that the suspects had “special knowledge and skills in the field of programming” and “have created their own CMS-system for managing the content of exchange sites.”

During the raid of the suspects’ homes, the police reportedly seized computers, flash drives, smartphones, and other devices. According to a spokesperson for the Ukrainian National Police, “the list of sites is not complete.” Now authorities are asking users to provide information about whether they were deceived by fraudulent exchanges before.

Last Wednesday, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission received an additional emergency court order to freeze the assets of Dominic Lacroix, owner of PlexCorps. Lacroix and his partner, Sabrina Paradis-Royer, were accused of violating securities law in respect to the PlexCoin initial coin offering (ICO) conducted by PlexCorps in August last year. The ICO reportedly raised $15 million from “thousands of investors.”

In blockchain we trust: why the leading online-casinos adopt ‘trustless’ RNGs

The revolution was not evident at first, but the blockchain technology is rapidly finding critical applications beyond cryptocurrency. Two industries that have been in dire need of innovation are the gaming and gambling industry. Blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies have been able to connect with both sectors at a deeper level tackling a long-daunting problem – transparency of a transactions.

One of the most significant challenges associated with traditional online casinos is that essential data, such as gaming results, winnings, payouts, and more info, is deliberately kept away or partially concealed from public scrutiny. Due to this fact, lots of users have lost faith in the industry and have shifted to casual gaming or other opportunities. The integration of blockchain technology is expected to solve these frictions that the online casino community has been facing since the gambling business was introduced to the internet.

However, why is the blockchain technology an A-list topic? For consumers, it adds a layer of trust because it promotes a way of allowing interaction without intermediaries. As an auditable and verifiable data storage system, it can record players’ moves while ensuring that the data is protected yet valid on an open ledger. For developers and entrepreneurs registering every movement of the players automatically opens up a whole new world of possibilities.

Casinos looking into implementing the blockchain gambling are an entirely new breed of online businesses which are fully decentralized, with no third-party verifying transactions. Thus, it enables a fair and transparent system for the online casino industry which could trigger getting back the old users and potentially foster the expansion of a new clients network. Implementing blockchain technology is a need of the time as users want to know the game is fair and they have a legitimate chance to win.

One of the industry leaders, BitStarz, is already using the Provably Fair System, which is a perk of implementing blockchain technology inside casino operations. SP8DE offers the ready-made solution, so businesses do not need to waste more time and resources investing in its development as it comes in a package that is easy to enact and at an affordable cost.

Yet, the major issue with the industry is the lack of trust with the random number generator (RNG). This represents a crucial aspect of ensuring the fairness of the game. A significant drawback of the industry is that users believe the numbers are not randomly generated which consequently led to widening the gap between the business and its consumers.

Blockchain developers have been looking into various breakthroughs to this problem, and there are not lots of projects which came up with a viable solution. A decentralized RNG is a Provably Fair system because part of the hash is generated by the client’s side and part by the node. The computation process becomes complex and difficult to hack or set to hack. This way, by adding more variables to the creation of the random numbers, SP8DE’s platform can easily generate millions of random numbers that could cover the needs of the industry and the providers.

The team developed a protocol that is combining off-chain and on-chain RNGs which can be easy to implement not just for casino providers, but for other industries as well such as gaming and many others. The numbers are generated on a blockchain network which makes it impossible to corrupt any transaction, thus ensuring the transparency and fairness that casino business needs to survive. SP8DE believes that RNG is more than just a set of random numbers as they are pioneering a platform that sells trust in times when innovation is the answer.

In the end, we need to see technology as an incremental process. The Internet had casinos connected to the full world, but the technological advancements stagnated ever since. Blockchain represents the revolution for many industries, and especially for the casino one. It reiterates the need for building systems that can ensure trust, transparency, and safety of transactions and information.
