Nebulas Partners with WeOne to Accelerate Global Esports Growth on the BlockchainReading Time: 2 minutes

 

Nebulas.io (NAS), the globe’s leading next-generation public chain, and WeOne (CKR), a Singapore-based esports blockchain tournament and gaming platform, agreed to collaborate (NAS-CKR) on September 28th, 2018, towards revolutionizing the esports & gaming industry and bringing further maturity to Nebulas’ ecosystem. 

 

Nebulas, a public blockchain with the goal of creating a continuously improving ecosystem, and WeOne, a decentralized next-generation platform proving unprecedented, multi-dimensional gaming experiences, have signed a strategic partnership to promote the mainnet development for Nebulas and continue to foster esports growth.

The esports industry has rapidly increased in popularity over the past years, particularly in Southeast Asia, where the number of enthusiasts is expected to reach 20 million people by 2019.

Cooperation
Nebulas and WeOne will be closely collaborating on a variety of projects. Nebulas will assist with aspects related to the planning, development, and marketing of the WeOne platform.

Due to the partnership, WeOne dApps will have the ability to evolve on Nebulas’ flexible blockchain, and anchor dApps will be released on the Nebulas public chain to cement the building blocks of the WeOne platform. This influx of dApps onto the Nebulas public chain will help nurture and accelerate the growth of the entire ecosystem.

Recently, Nebulas was ranked as one of the best blockchain projects by the Global Public Chain Evaluation via CCID Research. Its technological advantages have helped secure a number of partnerships with influential companies.

WeOne is an official partner of XiGu Group, and the WeOne token, ‘Chakra’, has been appointed to be the official currency of YuuGames, China’s largest esports event organizer. YuuGames currently has millions of members across 140,000 gaming cafes in the country.

Significance
The official NAS-CKR partnership will help build bridges across different industries to further facilitate the growth of the wider esports industry. Its inclusion as a competitive activity at the 2022 Asian Games has created a massive opportunity for collaboration and growth within the esports sector.

The NAS-CKR partnership will only accelerate the development and creation of a gaming and esports ecosystem that is reliable, immutable, and efficient.

Conclusion 
Collaboration between both projects through the NAS-CKR partnerships will help each platforms expand in their capabilities. The creation of a gaming and esports ecosystem built on decentralization will not only benefit the gaming industry at large, but will also help positively promote blockchain technology in the public sphere.

”We are of course very pleased with having our Swedish license and to have received a green light for continuing growing in the Swedish market. Today, I am celebrating together with our white label clients, who now will get the same opportunity as us to carry out operations in Sweden” says Erik Skarp, founder and CEO of Bethard Group. “Sweden is, for many reasons, a very dear market to us and I am personally looking forward to show what we can do in terms of responsible gaming on our home market. Our goal is to become Europe’s leading betting company, not only in terms of innovation but also in terms of having the courage to take the right decisions in order to be a truly responsible gaming company”.

 

Bethard.com is based in Malta and Sweden. The company is currently licensed in Malta, Denmark, the UK and now Sweden. Work on a license application for a license in Ireland as well as a state license in Schleswig-Holstein in Germany has been initiated. The company is actively seeking licenses in several other markets and expects to have a licensed presence in most key European markets already by 2020.

Wyoming Attorney General terms ‘skill games’ illegalReading Time: 1 minute

 

Peter Michael, the Attorney General of Wyoming, has stated that the so-called “skill games” prevalent in the state are illegal gambling devices.

“At the request of law enforcement officials, I was asked to evaluate whether the electronic games manufactured by Banilla Games are illegal under Wyoming law,” Michael said in a statement Tuesday. “These machines are illegal gambling devices under Wyoming law. Those who play them are engaged in gambling, which is a crime in Wyoming, and those who provide the games are engaged in professional gambling, which is also a crime in Wyoming.”

Michael’s legal opinion does not cover “historic horse racing” terminals at pari-mutuel off-track betting locations. Those terminals are legally valid in Wyoming.

Similarly, it does not concern tribal gaming operations on the Wind River Indian Reservation.

“Because gambling in Wyoming is a crime, not a civil violation, local law enforcement officials and prosecutors will need to determine the timing of the appropriate next steps if their communities have these machines,” Michael said.
