New industry body The Double C Foundation, which seeks to develop sector stakeholders’ crypto currency dynamics and knowledge, has confirmed the appointment of its first set of executives for its newly-established advisory board.

This September, Double C Foundation announced the relaunch of CasinoCoin (CSC), an open source, peer-to-peer cryptocurrency designed specifically for the regulated online gambling industry.

Seeking to bring crypto functions to a wider gaming audience, Double C Foundation has appointed industry executives Lee Fenton, CEO of Gamesys, Britt Boeskov, CPO of Kindred Group and Sam Hobcraft, CEO of OPL Gaming Group to its advisory board.

John Caldwell, Director of Advocacy for the Foundation, said: “To be able to announce an advisory board that includes some of the most highly-regarded professionals in this industry really highlights the growing excitement, support and confidence in CasinoCoin.

“We have assembled a team with unparalleled experience from across the global gaming sector and beyond. This team will help guide CasinoCoin over the coming months and years as we continue our mission to bring cryptocurrency to the regulated gambling industry.

Further leadership guidance, for the Foundation in promoting the adoption and best-use practices for crypto currency dynamics in regulated gambling markets, will be provided by Morten Tonnesen, former PokerStars’ Director of Group Marketing; Luke Webster, former Senior Regulator of the London Stock Exchange; Jeffrey Haas, experienced iGaming exec; David Sargeant, Founder of innovation agency iGaming Ideas; and James Scicluna, Co-managing Partner at WH Partners.

Sam Hobcraft, Advisory Board member, commented: “Cryptocurrency has an important role to play in the future of gaming, but it is essential that it does so in a secure, consumer-friendly and regulated fashion.

“CasinoCoin is leading the charge in this area, and I am looking forward to being involved with a project which has the potential to change the face of our industry.”
