DraftKings CEO - "The types of things [we need] to become mainstream fly directly in the face of decentralization. If you don't have some sort of centralized control, it's hard to protect people from themselves."

"I know the purists won't like this," he said. "But does there need to be some element of centralization that comes in that allows for some of the things that have to happen to make blockchain technology be more applicable to mainstream use cases?"

Apparently BTC and others need centralized control to protect users. Rather conveniently it would also make it far easier to shut down any of his crypto-based competitors.

It's not just crypto media either, in fact the calls are growing even louder over in the gambling industry. They already have large numbers of lobbyists engaged in the push for gambling legislation, so they already have a lot of weight to further tip the scales towards tighter crypto regulations. The end goal is of course to limit competition and make it much easier to funnel more value out of crypto and into their pockets.

These black-box solutions also pose some serious questions about how all of this user data is collected, shared, and secured. It seems like a really bad trade-off when the benefits really only amount to a slight increase in convenience.

Crypto needs to be fielding more projects like GAMBL, and and less of these poorly-planned and inefficient L2 gambling dapps if they really want to compete in the long-term. The global gambling market is absolutely massive and has always been a key factor in the increased adoption and value of crypto. Satoshi himself recognized it even in the earliest development of bitcoin.

Things are starting to heat up, along with those summer temps. The end of Q2 is fast approaching and with it the release of more information about the GAMBL sale.

Join the GAMBL telegram to stay on top of the updates and be among the first to get information about the project and the wider industry as a whole.

Also to follow along and cheer for our team member and 2014 WSOP main event champion Martin Jacobson as he competes for his second bracelet, along with many of the other WSOP events he is playing in.

May I ask if you have private investors on this project? Do you think you can launch this gaming platform without any crowdsourcing activities? Based from my impression, it seems the team is well-prepared. You already won the top blockchain stellar award, which means, you've been developing this gaming platform for quite a while already.

Yes, likely could.

However, the long-term goal is legitimate decentralization which requires tokens to be sufficiently dispersed. We want anyone to be able to get in as early and fairly as possible, we're not going to be gatekeepers and just pander to VCs who only want to resell to users at a higher cost. Ideally we want bettors and those who want to run nodes at some point, especially when it comes to eventual governance.

There has also been a lot of preparation already on the legal/regulatory side too, Mario and Karl are quite familiar with the Malta Gaming Authority if you look at their backgrounds. Mario's IGA Group also won consultancy of the year at the 2021 Sigma Europe Gaming Awards. He's become quite adept at solving both operational and regulatory challenges.

We've seen all of of the failures and outright scams, and we genuinely want to change that. Even the traditional gambling industry is in a terrible state right now, especially for the users. This is an industry where crypto actually makes sense, as it is primarily composed of transactions which are increasingly becoming digital. Not to mention that total global betting is now estimated to be in the trillions per year in USD value.

We know a system like this can operate much more efficiently than our traditional counterparts, and even most of them now realize it, which is why they're so interested in pushing for tighter crypto regulations and centralized controls.

Very happy to announce that the GAMBL pre-sale will begin August 1st for whitelist members, and general access begins on August 15th. It's the first chance to get in on the action and the sale is capped at 40m tokens. Whitelist price is discounted to 6c from the general access price of 8c. There is also a referral bonus of 10% for those who want to earn some extra tokens. More info available on our site.

There's still time to get on the whitelist and we've made some more whitelist spots available through our contest, details are at the link below.

A maximum of about 3 weeks left to lock up a whitelist spot and be among those who get the first shot at some GAMBL tokens, along with a nice discount.

We've seen what DraftKings, FanDuel, and others have done to this industry. The vast majority of bettors aren't very happy (to put it rather mildly) and are left wanting something else. The demand is certainly there and the bar isn't exactly high.

And with crypto markets the way they are now, it can't afford to lose even more of the gambling industry to the current corrupt and inefficient oligarchy. Companies like DraftKings are currently down about as much as crypto so they're desperate and they have a LOT of lobbyists, which is not a great combination for crypto as we've already begun to see in recent months.

This is one of the few major use-cases that crypto is clearly more efficient at, lets keep it in crypto!

One week left until the whitelist sale starts. This is the chance to lock in the lowest rate for GAMBL.

There is only a very limited amount of GAMBL Whitelist Spots remaining…those will be filled on a first come, first served basis - until all whitelist spots are gone!

Whitelist pre-orders are up and running smoothly the past few days, might even be a few unused spots if they haven't already been reclaimed by another.

General access for pre-orders begins August 15th.

There are also ways to earn GAMBL, perhaps the best is the 10% bonus for referrals. Gleam bonuses are over, but there will be regular bonuses so it's worth keeping an eye on this thread - or the website, or Telegram which is perhaps the best.

I can understand some won't prefer to use Telegram for various reasons, so I will try to keep things updated here.

Update with an important two-part series of articles covering the vast amounts of user data being collected, widely shared, and likely misused - by both online and physical casinos.

In the US we have the AGA releasing a very troubling guide outlining their best practices, which include a wide range of often sensitive user data being gathered and voluntarily shared with a large number of businesses, government agencies, and other organizations. Also seems to indicate a high likelihood of many innocent users being flagged and subjected to even higher scrutiny and outright harassment, especially for foreign users who could even see their funds confiscated in some cases. And in the more mature UK market we're already seeing data misuse cases being brought up.

This is just the beginning, the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Most/all of us in crypto already know where this path leads, and we need to give users a better option. The normies may not yet see all of the benefits of something like GAMBL, but they will eventually.
