DAO.Casino (BET) is set to go live with its protocol by the end of October, with the CEO saying that Asia is a particular focus for the decentralized casino platform.

Speaking to members of the community in a Q&A, DAO.Casino CEO Ilya Tarutov said that while the platform was likely to be tested in Europe, “all out efforts will go into developing and establishing our presence in Asia”.

Tarutov also said that DAO is currently in discussions with the Malta Gaming Authority about licensing the protocol.

Regarding partnerships which will see the first DAO-powered casinos go live, he said that the priority is to first get the protocol ready, tested and released.

“We are talking to many potential partners about future cooperation and will release this information in due course. We are working with them closely to make our product convenient, user-friendly and up to the highest industry standards,” he added.

In a recent developer update, the team said the preview developer beta version of the protocol will be released “at the nearest future.”

DAO.Casino was trading at $0.023455 on 30th August for a market cap of $3.9 million.
