The Growing Use of Blockchain by Start-ups and SMEs with Alexandra Karpova (Co-Founder & CEO at Millennium Communications) at TCE2019 PragueReading Time: 3 minutes

 

The inception of new technologies has always been cataloged as a disruptor. There has never been such a technology that can carry the ability to disrupt ordinary business practices around the globe. Blockchain technology applications have only recently come to light, but are becoming more relevant and its potential only continues to grow. The wide use of Blockchain has been recorded also in the startup-up and SMEs companies and the booms are yet to come.

There are many ways in which businesses can already use blockchain and they depend on the industry in which they operate. In the real estate industry, there are marketplaces for renting or selling properties on blockchain-based P2P marketplaces. The same goes for the insurance industry, where blockchain-based applications already manage claims. The hype goes on and we can see the use of blockchain-based security applications in the IoT industry.

We must also mention logistics, where companies can tap into blockchain-based platforms that monitor and track freight movement. The list goes on and we are seeing these implementations on a daily base.

Small businesses can get ahead, innovate and build an edge with blockchain transformation by using blockchain-based services as well as creating their own apps on top of blockchain – decentralized apps, or DApps. Finally, businesses can already use smart contracts to regulate and govern relationships and agreements with other entities.

Most importantly, we can see that the biggest way in which blockchain technology is going to revolutionize SMEs is its ability to develop smart contracts.  All thanks to smart contracts, remote and autonomous consensus between two parties can be done through a single click on a self-reliant infrastructure that can help SMEs grow beyond their wildest imagination.

As a decentralized system, there is no need to pay intermediaries and both the enterprise and the consumer save a lot of money. Plus, the fact that blockchains are immutable makes it a lot more secure than traditional systems.

Global Gaming to Appeal Swedish License RevocationReading Time: 1 minute

 

Global Gaming is going to appeal Spelinspektionen’s decision to revoke its license in Sweden.

The Swedish gambling regulator has revoked the license of Global Gaming’s subsidiary SafeEnt Ltd, after conducting a thorough review of its operations in Sweden. The regulator’s review detected “serious deficiencies” in its anti-money laundering, know your customer, and social responsibility policies. The company was also found to have breached Sweden’s rules for bonus offers.

Tobias Fagerlund, the acting CEO of Global Gaming 555 AB, said that Spelinspektionen’s decision was odd as his company and its legal advisers were under impression that all obligations it had as a licensee were complied with.

The gaming authority said in a statement that SafeEnt lacked effective anti-money laundering and terrorist financing tools and that the review conducted showed “serious and systematic shortcomings” in the operator’s risk assessment and KYC.
