iGaming Welcomes Crypto and Blockchain at Successful SiGMA 2018 in Malta

The benefits of cryptocurrencies and the blockchain technology have been huge game changers for many industries. And by judging a recently held convention, iGaming has started to embrace them as well.

Companies related to crypto and blockchain were involved in more ways than one at SiGMA 2018, held from November 28 to 30 at the Malta Fairs and Convention Centre. The successful three-day conference for iGaming, affiliates, esports, and more has invited some of the important and promising names in the sector.

Registration drinks and a Networking Poker Tournament warmed up attendees of SiGMA 2018, both hosted and sponsored by WPN Affiliates, a night before the conference. The Winning Poker Network affiliate program accepts as much as 60 different cryptos, catering to a wider audience.

We’re having a blast at the Welcome Drinks Event in Malta! The Networking Poker Tournament gets underway shortly (9pm local time), so get here now if you can. #SiGMA18

DiceyBit has also impressed a number of investors during the exhibition of its blockchain-enabled products. The company presented the advantages business clients would enjoy by launching their games on the “first gaming blockchain ever”—from players’ one-time registration to regulatory compliance, among others.

Meanwhile, another company among many blockchain-based exhibitors has also caught the attention of enthusiasts in the event.

Called Qalba, the company aims to revolutionize the betting industry by pitting bettors not against the provider, but against fellow players. Simply put, on its platform, the losing bet would be divided among the winning bettors. This way, betting becomes transparent and fair.

Malta seemed to be the best location SiGMA could have chosen for its iGaming event as the government of this European island-state has welcomed the emerging blockchain technology faster than most countries did. In fact, Malta’s Prime Minister Joseph Muscat graced the event as a key speaker.

Eman Pulis, SiGMA CEO, said:

“The government makes our lives a bit easier as well because they are always at a forefront in regulating the space. We started gaming five years ago. We embraced blockchain this year.”

After it embraced status of being the “blockchain island,” Malta has started to become an innovator once again, this time, on the artificial intelligence (AI) space. Pulis mentioned that the Maltese government “will soon be launching a regulatory framework for artificial intelligence.”

With that in mind, SiGMA’s top executive hinted at organizing future conferences that would give focus on AI.
