Reading Time: 2 minutes

8th June 2018, (Debert, Nova Scotia, Canada) – BookiePro, the world’s first provably fair sports betting exchange, today announced the launch of its much-anticipated public beta, BookiePro.fun, in time for the 2018 World Cup.

Sports bettors everywhere are now able to download and install the decentralized app to test the betting exchange built on the Peerplays blockchain. To support the play-for-fun launch, users of the popular cryptocurrency forum, Bitcointalk, will be able to compete for a five-Bitcoin prize pool throughout the World Cup.

Our goal is to solve many of the frustrations that customers currently have with betting exchanges and to build a product that delivers on the original vision of peer-to-peer betting. The Peerplays blockchain has enabled us to do just that,” said Jonathan Baha’i, President of the Peerplays Blockchain Standards Association (PBSA).

Today, I’m thrilled to announce the public beta launch of the first provably fair sports betting app, BookiePro.”

The launch of the BookiePro public beta marks the first official decentralized app operating on the Peerplays blockchain as well as the first public showcase of provably fair sports betting. No single person, company, or central authority owns or operates BookiePro.

I’m very proud of the work our talented team has done to bring the BookiePro public beta to users. Adding to the excitement of the World Cup, users will be able to experience a truly decentralized betting exchange for the first time,” said Toby Lynas, Head of Operations at PBSA.

The exchange is now live with users able to download and install the app from www.BookiePro.fun. Competition prizes will be awarded across a range of daily challenges, bounties, sweepstakes and leaderboards. Users will wager with BitFun (BTF), a new play-for-fun currency created especially for BookiePro.fun. All users who sign up will receive 10 BTF, with opportunities to top up that balance.

BookiePro.fun is open to all and looks to educate the entire betting community – including punters, operators and regulators – about the benefits of blockchain for sports bettors.

About BookiePro:

BookiePro is a decentralized sports betting exchange, the first of its kind in the world. BookiePro.fun is the public beta version of BookiePro, where bettors use play tokens called BitFun while competing in competitions to win real Bitcoin. Launched in time for World Cup 2018, the app allows betting on soccer matches during the tournament and beyond. Additional sports and tournaments will be added regularly, over time.

No single person, company, or central authority operates BookiePro.fun or the Peerplays blockchain on which it is built. As the Racing Post puts it: “…because of the way blockchains work, Peerplays is largely automated and self-sustaining. No one owns it, no single person or organisation is responsible for it…”

New Global Deal Between Ubisoft and In-game Advertising Platform Anzu.io Brings Blended In-Game Ads Into Trackmania

New Global Deal Between Ubisoft and In-game Advertising Platform Anzu.io Brings Blended In-Game Ads Into Trackmania
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

World-leading in-game advertising platform Anzu.io announced its partnership with leading video game publisher Ubisoft. This first collaboration between the two companies is already taking place inside the hit PC racing game Trackmania, developed by Ubisoft Nadeo. This is a truly innovative game with major potential for brand collaboration.

Ads that enhance the gaming experience

Anzu, the first programmatic in-game advertising platform for PC & console, will bring dynamic, blended banner and video brand ads directly inside Trackmania. Rather than disturb the gameplay with intrusive pop-ups, Anzu’s ads, in this case, delivered programmatically, are placed naturally on in-game objects such as walls, billboards, bridges, and along the sidetracks, thereby enhancing the gameplay with more realism.

The collaboration has already been witnessed publicly as part of the recent DIGI1 by Gamevention online gaming convention in June. During a 30-minute livestream, four popular streamers and pro gamers participated in the first-ever worldwide multiplayer stream of Trackmania, complete with a blended in-game Vodafone ad experience powered by Anzu. Of the experience, the streamer Trilluxe said, “You definitely recognize it straight away… you’ll most likely read what it says on those ads. They’re not distracting at all and I find the way they’re integrated quite smart and fitting as you’ll have sponsors banners on real-life racing tracks as well.”

The Future is Now

This new deal between Ubisoft and leading in-game advertising platform Anzu is representative of a major development in the relationship between brands and games. Gaming, with an extremely diverse audience base of nearly 3 billion players from all countries and all walks of life, doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon.

In light of Anzu’s recent distinction as the first and only in-game ad company to receive an ISO 27001 certificate, which gives developers and advertisers confidence that user data is handled properly, the company is pushing new industry standards. Also the first and only solution of its kind to bring advanced and trusted AdTech integrations to in-game advertising, Anzu has introduced a collaboration with fraud-detection solution Forensiq, the first-ever ad verification solution in partnership with CHEQ, and campaign effectiveness measurement together with Nielsen Connectivity. These partnerships provide confidence to advertisers and in turn, translate to more revenues for game developers.

Anzu’s co-founder and CEO, Itamar Benedy, noted, “Together with Ubisoft, we are creating a new ecosystem for game developers and brands to experience efficient and scalable in-game advertising. Trackmania is a historic franchise and we are excited to partner with Ubisoft to generate value for them through our technology, innovation and expertise. The partnership will allow more gaming giants to experience how they can enhance their games with real-world brand ads all while driving new, sustainable revenue streams,” he said.

The 3×3, fast-paced video slot adds a modern twist on a classic jewel-filled title with its fixed jackpots which are accessed through the Respin feature.
