Canada is celebrating its sesquicentennial this year and is pulling out all the stops to make the country proud of its history. Canada has always been a place where the entrepreneurial spirit rules with the resourceful population inventing and innovating in every field.

The gambling industry is no exception with numerous start ups heading up north to build a business. To help facilitate the drive for more information the Canadian Gaming Association, a not-for-profit organization has with  MediaEdge Communications Inc. created the Canadian Gaming Summit due to commence this June 19th through to the 21st 2017 in Vancouver, British Columbia Canada.

Major government wagering organizations from every corner of Canada will be in attendance. It is expected that the use of blockchain technology will be explored in depth at the Summit. Gambling operators use virtual currencies such as Bitcoin. The  technology for Bitcoin makes use of cryptography to create a distributed ledger system to hold and spend money in a more open, transparent and flexible manner compared to the traditional bank or credit card companies. In the future, the technology could help unify the global payments system by enabling banks to process transactions directly, instantly and securely in a matter of seconds.

During the Summit's “Blockchain 101-Why Should I Even Care?” it is sure to be a hit among the participants as they experience a panel discussion on the topic moderated by Gary Boddington, CRO of BTL Group. The experts in the field on the panel will include Guy Halford Thompson, CEO of BTL Group; Ron Segev, technology and iGaming lawyer of Segev LLP; Ray Walia, CEO of Launch Academy and Victory Square Ventures; and Peter Law, senior manager of Ernst & Young. They will endeavour to explain the significance of blockchain advances and whether it is just a tempest in a teapot or a serious encounter with something new that needs addressing.
