Ethereum-based Edgeless.io has promptly announced it has successfully received its sought-after casino license heading into the new year.
The Edgeless team said, “that’s a huge step for the entire gambling and blockchain community because it’s the first time a blockchain based casino is officially approved by legal authorities. In general, working hand in hand with legal authorities and being fully regulated is necessary for the growth of the business, especially in areas such as crypto or gambling.”
This license gives tons of advantages for a casino operator such as access to the gambling market, credibility, and authority within the industry, a secure partnership with exchanges, access to banking services, access to payment providers, access to affiliate and media networks, and much more.
