The CasinoCoin Foundation, a non-profit entity supporting the blockchain-powered payment solution CasinoCoin (CSC), has appointed former IGT and Yahoo! compliance specialist Antonio Zanghi as chief compliance officer.

Zanghi joins the CasinoCoin Foundation in a newly-created role that underlines its commitment to use blockchain technology to create compliance solutions that go above and beyond what is currently available among traditional fiat currency operators.

He will oversee a technical compliance solution as part of the CasinoCoin blockchain that will provide partner operators with complete peace of mind.

Industry-first AML, KYC and responsible gaming checks will be fully integrated with the CasinoCoin Bankroll Manager, a single wallet solution that will allow users to deposit their CSC with multiple operator partners after passing a single registration and verification process.

“Compliance has never been more critical in the gaming industry than it is today, as we continue to see heavy fines levied on operators for infractions,” said CasinoCoin Foundation director of advocacy, John Caldwell.

“This is why we are delighted to welcome Antonio to the team. His years of experience in this field at the likes of IGT, Yahoo! and Red Tiger Gaming will prove invaluable as we build the most robust regulatory infrastructure in the sector.

“It has always been the aim of CasinoCoin to go above and beyond on the issue of compliance. Our single wallet solution will not only offer stronger protections and greater transparency to operators and regulators, it will also simplify the onboarding process for players.”

Antonio Zanghi, the CasinoCoin Foundation’s new chief compliance officer, added: “I am absolutely thrilled to be joining the CasinoCoin team. I have worked in compliance for many years now, and I have never been so impressed by the ambition laid out by John and his colleagues.

“By leveraging blockchain technology, it is possible to achieve things not before possible in the field. This is an utterly transformative approach to KYC, AML and responsible gaming that will raise the bar for what is expected of operators across the industry.”

Zanghi is the second former IGT staffer to join the CasinoCoin Foundation this year, following the appointment of Ashish Tawakley as chief commercial officer in March.

 

CasinoCoin (ticker: CSC) is a blockchain-powered payment solution, designed specifically for the regulated gaming industry. Utilising some of the most advanced technology available today, CasinoCoin operates on its own independent blockchain and features unprecedented speed, scale and security.

CasinoCoin’s flagship product, the Bankroll Manager (BRM), will feature built-in KYC, AML and responsible gaming functionality, and an overall unique user experience not available on any other mobile gaming application. Operators will benefit from the simplified on boarding process and low processing fees, and regulators will benefit from the transparency into coin movement that blockchain enables, creating a near-perfect AML environment.  

After starting out as an affiliate in 2009 and developing some recognized review portals, I have moved deeper into journalism and media. My experience has lead me to move into the B2B sector and write about compliance updates and report around the happenings of the online and land based gaming sector.

The Russian Parliament Duma is likely to consider a new legislation on cryptocurrency in the coming winter. Anatoly Aksakov, the State Duma Committee head on the Financial Market, said that the parliament will consider a new regulatory bill to monitor the cryptocurrency circulation in the market space in January or February

He said: “The long-awaited law on digital financial assets is in the GPU for approval … It is in conjunction with two others: the law on the regulation of investment platforms or crowdfunding and changes to the Civil Code. We agreed that the law on digital financial assets should be adopted along with these two legislative acts … Judging by the information that I have, this is January-February. Most likely, February, of course. Consideration of all three bills should pass,” he stated.

Earlier last year, the lower chamber adopted the first reading of digital assets bill, which was introduced by the Federation Council members with Aksakov as the head and the deputies of State Duma. However, his statement suggested that this time in February the law would be framed in such a way that it administers crypto activities in the insurance and banking sectors.

 “The next law from digital is a bill regulating the activities of electronic platforms, in use, the marketplace. I submitted this bill to the State Duma for consideration at the end of December. We have a plan to adopt this law by February 15 in order to launch a pilot project about 20 credit institutions and the Moscow Stock Exchange are preparing, “he said.
