The surge has been accompanied by a significant increase in volume, with around $350,000 in CSC traded over the past 24 hours.

The CasinoCoin Foundation recently added Richard Cammegh, managing director of roulette wheel manufacturer Cammegh, to its advisory board as part of a strategic commitment to introduce blockchain technology to casino floors.

CasinoCoin is built with the regulated online casino industry in mind, with a set of features and tools customised to meet the needs of users, operators and regulators.
