New Crypto Currency Online Casino Games Coming to Canada

Ethereum can have software programs natively built atop it, meaning the exchanges happen automatically along with the catalysts

EthereumWith the use of crypto currencies such as Bitcoin becoming more and more widespread on the internet, online casinos are starting to jump on the bandwagon.

There are already a number of excellent online casinos where privacy conscious Canadians can use “crypto” as a banking method. And that roster will be expending even more in the near future if online casino entrepreneur Jez San has anything to say about it.

Online Casino Games On Ethereum

San is working on developing casino games for the Ethereum cryptocurrency platform. Ethereum is a blockchain technology and service similar to Bitcoin, but does have a very important difference.

Bitcoin operates like traditional currency in the sense that it must be exchanged between people independently of the transaction catalyzing the exchange. In contrast, Ethereum can have software programs natively built atop it, meaning the exchanges happen automatically along with the catalysts:

In other words, instead of “depositing” Bitcoin before playing, hitting a big score, and then “withdrawing” the additional Bitcoin winnings after playing, online casino players could simply hop on, win, and then hop off with their crypto-cash without ever needing to visit the cashier.

San Known for Tech Ventures

San has already raised $26 million for his Ethereum online casino gaming concept. That’s come as little surprise, given the intersection between how popular online casino games are and San’s own reputation for creating excellent gaming experiences.

San’s career has straddled these two worlds. He is the founder of both Argonaut Games, a well known company that created the popular “Star Fox” series, as the PKR poker room, whose highly innovative 3D avatars concept did very well during the poker boom.

Given all that, expectations are high that San will be able to make the best use of this new blockchain technology to deliver Canadian players the future of online casino games in the very near future.
