Good Morning. Fast but volatile. Such is the world of crypto – a wild ride, but one which is full of benefits, if companies just know how to maximize the potential. Ana Schultz, from payment service provider FinchPay, points out how crypto adoption can be a major boon to iGaming operators who are still focused on a fiat-based world. And in Macau, GGR is expected to take a hit in September, dropping by some 6 percent monthly, in part due to the super typhoon which shuttered casinos. Meanwhile, a judge has ordered that Universal Entertainment is not required to complete its SPAC merger.

Crypto adoption key to the growth of iGaming: Ana Schultz

However, digital currencies are not going to take over any time soon, despite the benefits of blockchain technology.
