THEMATIC WORKSHOPS

Blockchain, crypto, and gambling: Evolving overlaps

Day 1: May 10, 2021


Description

Blockchain is the technology behind crypto currencies and these can be used to gamble. While straightforward, this is the least important overlap of blockchain, crypto and gambling. This workshop gives insights into their continuous entanglement. Trading crypto derivatives with a 100x leverage is discussed as well as decentralized gambling offers that are run by decentralized computer code without any ownership. The interactive discussion will focus on the implications for regulation and public health.

Learning objectives

This workshop is for any participant who is interested in:

  • learning more about how blockchain can disrupt gambling as we currently know it;
  • a proactive discussion on how the adverse consequences of this development can best be mitigated.
