While for many crypto tokens remain in a gray area, and some would not dare to compare that with any investment vehicle, it is important to see how blockchain’s own features: transparency and immutability serves customer protection purposes.

7.40pm - 8.10pm Pretty good randomness on a deterministic virtual machine

It is possible to design and build system that will replace current gambling industry by disintermediating old school online casinos, and that's what we're doing. On Ethereum everyone can be a casino, but for such system to work you need random numbers. Random number generation should happen directly on Ethereum, without relying on a third party. It is not a trivial task. We will present a design of this particular protocol that we have been working on with the help of Ethereum community.

Since the very beginning of Ethereum one could imagine that it will change gaming industry. In summer last year we started to research what this new industry would look like, beyond just a few individual games or an appstore, designed an architecture and started implementing the system.

DAO.Casino is an Ethereum powered system that expresses a business logic of an online gambling industry in a decentralised and p2p manner - not just one aspect of it but the most: from a p2p market place for the game devs to provably fair random number generation, that happens within Ethereum, not a third party.
