The non-profit Foundation of CasinoCoin (CSC), the open source, peer-to-peer cryptocurrency designed specifically for the regulated online gambling industry, has announced the appointment of several senior industry professionals to its newly-established advisory board.

Last month, CasinoCoin announced its re-launch and the establishment of The Double C Foundation, created to support the development of CasinoCoin, from offices in the Isle of Man.

Today, the non-profit Foundation has announced an advisory board with a wealth of experience from across the global gaming industry. Among those joining are Lee Fenton, CEO of Gamesys, Britt Boeskov, CPO of Kindred Group and Sam Hobcraft, CEO of OPL Gaming Group.

The advisory board, which will assist the Foundation in promoting the adoption and best-use practices of CasinoCoin in regulated gambling markets, will also welcome Morten Tonnesen, former PokerStars’ Director of Group Marketing; Luke Webster, former Senior Regulator of the London Stock Exchange; Jeffrey Haas, experienced iGaming exec; David Sargeant, Founder of innovation agency iGaming Ideas; and James Scicluna, Co-managing Partner at WH Partners.

John Caldwell, Director of Advocacy for the Foundation, said: “To be able to announce an advisory board that includes some of the most highly-regarded professionals in this industry really highlights the growing excitement, support and confidence in CasinoCoin.

“We have assembled a team with unparalleled experience from across the global gaming sector and beyond. This team will help guide CasinoCoin over the coming months and years as we continue our mission to bring cryptocurrency to the regulated gambling industry.

Sam Hobcraft, Advisory Board member, added: “Cryptocurrency has an important role to play in the future of gaming, but it is essential that it does so in a secure, consumer-friendly and regulated fashion.

“CasinoCoin is leading the charge in this area, and I am looking forward to being involved with a project which has the potential to change the face of our industry.”

CasinoCoin, the currency, which puts operators and regular customers front-of-mind with its approach, aims to lead the industry in setting high best-use practice standards. It is currently developing features and new technology that will include built-in KYC, AML and responsible gaming features.

The Foundation’s team includes former PokerStars Marketing Executive John Caldwell and ex-Senior Project Manager of Research & Development for Rational Group Duncan Cameron, and is committed to educating the commercial (regulated) gambling industry as to the benefits of CSC, as well as cryptocurrency in general.
