LAS VEGAS, Oct. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Gaming Standards Association (GSA) welcomes the industry to its first ever conference event: GSA Technology Summit – Focus on Blockchain.

The Blockchain technology – the second phase of the Internet – will have a dramatic impact on our lives and businesses. It is poised to revolutionize data sharing, security and has the ability to provide regulatory authorities with previously unobtainable levels of transparency. Those looking at how this technology will impact the gaming industry will be able to listen to companies that are using the technology today and regulators as they debate the benefits Blockchain provides them.
GSA President Peter DeRaedt said, “We are excited to see a lot of interest in the event. For this unique summit we’ve used our extensive contacts within and outside the gaming industry to bring together speakers and participants who have the experience and know-how to offer attendees a more grounded foundation and education about this technology.”

Blockchain Committee Chair Earle G. Hall said, “Blockchain is the answer to so many of our inefficiencies. It is inherently designed for transparent, secure and distributed information flow. Blockchain will exponentially increase the potential for collaboration, efficiency and connectivity. We look forward to this event and expect to truly educate the industry on this topic.”
