The tron foundation has recently partnered with the coingaming group in a move which sees tron added as a payment method on leading gaming brands sportsbet.Io and bitcasino.Io. How did this partnership come about and what are the benefits for the tron community?
These two brands are great examples of how cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology can help deliver an improved user experience, and we wanted TRON to be part of that journey.
We’ve worked closely with the Coingaming team to ensure both the TRON community is welcomed with open arms, and that existing players at both Bitcasino.io and Sportsbet.io now have a convenient new payment method available to them.
The tron community has embraced gaming. Why do you think this is and what makes tron the ideal cryptocurrency for gaming?
The TRON community demands the best, and rightly so. It understands how this technology can improve daily interactions across just about every part of a person’s life. Gaming is one area where this is already in action.
Many people were not happy with how traditional online casinos operate. They want provably fair gaming, lightning fast transactions and zero fees. The TRON blockchain is scalable in a way other blockchains which have attempted to offer gaming products of this nature simply are not. That is why we see users flocking to it.
TRON is delivering the future of online gaming in a way that finally lives up to the expectations of the player.
We hear that you personally are a bit of a poker player. Could you tell us about the binance charity poker cup?
The Binance Charity Poker Cup was great fun. It was competed for by some of the biggest names in crypto, including Binance founder CZ and Litecoin founder Charlie Lee. The game took place on the TRON blockchain and was streamed worldwide to a large global audience.
Unfortunately, my poker skills couldn’t bring home the trophy, but the main thing was that we managed to raise more than $170,000 for Binance Charity, which has already helped more than 9,000 children in schools in Uganda.
How is the tron foundation working to bring crypto gaming to a wider, more mainstream audience?
We think this partnership with Bitcasino.io and Sportsbet.io in an important step in this process. Sportsbet.io’s sponsorship of major football clubs, including the Premier League’s Watford and Brazil’s Flamengo, is already putting crypto gaming in front of a huge global audience.
By allowing this audience to deposit, play and withdraw TRX on these international brands is a major step for us.
Beyond that, we continue to develop our tech stack and provide as much support as we can to our development community, which is building the next generation of products that will take TRON to another level.
The tron foundation and the coingaming group are two organisations which have grown extremely quickly within the crypto space. What has been the secret of this success?
The TRON Foundation shares a lot in common with the Coingaming Group, particularly an absolute focus on providing the best possible experience for the user.
We don’t want to speculate or sit back and discuss what might be possible in the future; we are here to change things right now, and the way the TRON Foundation and the Coingaming Group have come together to disrupt the gaming industry is just one example of this.
What is next on the roadmap for tron? Where do you see it in the next few years, and how central a role does the gaming community have in helping it achieve continued success?
The gaming community has a central role in the growth of TRON because it is displaying to the world why this technology is relevant.
While others in the sector speculate, the TRON community is out there enjoying the benefits of blockchain on a daily basis.
We will continue to partner with exciting operations that leverage our technology to offer best-in-class, disruptive and transformative products, just as the Coingaming Group are doing.
