Blockchain In Gambling And Betting: Are There Real Advantages Blockchain In Gambling And Betting: Are There Real Advantages
Online gambling is one of the fastest-growing markets on the planet especially now that an ever-larger percentage of the world's population has mobile Internet access. At the same time, this industry is extremely divisive. Its defenders state that legal gambling a largely cross-border activity promotes international trade and brings in tax revenue. They also contend that taking risks and betting is in human nature, and people should be free to spend their money however they wish. On the other hand, opponents of gambling cite the issue of addiction and high levels of fraud in the business. This item was first seen by us on 2019-01-31 12:41:26.

Nasdaq at their main offices in New York City.LightRocket via Getty Images Cryptocurrency exchanges who want to use Nasdaq's proprietary surveillance technology need to have more than money.

Is VR (Virtual Reality) The New Kid On The Blockchain Is VR (Virtual Reality) The New Kid On The Blockchain
Virtual reality on the blockchainShutterstock Back in 2010 when then-18-year-old Palmer Luckey created the first prototype of the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) headset, his creation seemed poised to usher in a new era of virtual worlds. It raised $2.4 million on Kickstarter and the Oculus company sold to Facebook for a cool $3 billion in 2014. However, so far VR has struggled to gain the wide-scale adoption that seemed inevitable when the Oculus Rift first appeared. In fact in 2018, Statista reports only 171 million active VR users compared with 2.3 billion active gamers (if we were to assume the only use case for VR is gaming, which it's not).
