celebrities that love casinos

The wonderful world of casino, eh? Over the years it has proved itself more than capable of commanding a huge crowd of people from across the spectrum of society, and this has only been intensified by the emergence of online casinos like Kings Casino that has made it truly accessible for pretty much everyone. 

The majority of the global population love to dabble in a spot of casino gambling, that much is evident, but if you look to the celebrity world you will quickly find that their passion for casinos greatly outweighs that of any other portion of society. And anyway, why wouldn’t you gamble if you have a fortune the size of some of the celebrities we are going to look at in this article? Without further ado, let’s take a look at some celebrities that love casinos. 

Toby Maguire 

Millions of kids were enthralled by Toby Maguire’s Spiderman character, and for good reason too – is there anything cooler than a man swinging through the Manhattan skyline using spiders webs? Well, being a professional poker player who is reported to have won over 10 million dollars in his gambling career might just top it, and Toby Maguire is both! 

He is said to have learnt his skills from Daniel Negreanu, a famous Canadian professional poker player who has won the World Series 6 different times – no wonder Toby Maguire loves the casino, eh? Unfortunately, however, Maguire was also busted in 2011 for being part of an illegal gambling ring, and ended up being sued for millions of dollars, ironically becoming one of the miscreants that Spiderman would track down in the films. 

Derren Brown 

Derren Brown is famous for his various tricks of the mind that can leave onlookers quite literally speechless, and he is also a master mathematician, meaning that he is particularly well suited to the world of casino gambling. In fact, Derren Brown was a keen gambler well before he reached the level of fame he is at now, and he was also very good indeed. 

According to some people he quite literally never lost, and casinos soon had enough – he is banned from many of them in London and Birmingham. Perhaps the most famous aspect of Derren Brown’s love of gambling, however, comes as a result of his Channel 4 TV show where he attempted to correctly guess the outcome of a roulette spin, and in a separate show the outcome of the lottery. 

Victoria Cohen-Michael 

Victoria Cohen-Michael has been a key part of British TV panel shows for quite some time now, and as it turns out she has also been running a particularly successful professional poker career at the same time too. In fact, she was the first women to ever win the European Poker Tour title in 2006. 

Since then her total winnings stand at well over 2 million pounds, proving that her passion for casino gambling is no mere flash in the pan. We wish her the best of luck in the future!

Boca Raton, Florida, 27th October, 2020, // ChainWire //

Collaborating with Other Cryptocurrencies, META 1 Tackles Injustice and Human Rights 

META 1 Coin Trust has announced plans to identify, research and document instances of governmental overreach in cryptocurrency cases globally, as part of its ongoing efforts to advance human rights and individual freedom. 

According to Robert P. Dunlap, Executive Trustee of META 1 Coin Trust, “The malicious attacks on crypto projects globally by overzealous government agencies must be documented and publicized to protect the individual liberties of META 1 Coin holders, as well as issuers and holders of other cryptocurrencies.” He added, “The decentralized, non-jurisdictional reality of crypto has left government agencies often unable to fully litigate cases and the general public should not have to continue suffering due to excessive overreach as agencies clamor to save face.”

META 1 Coin Trust is led by Robert P. Dunlap and Nicole Bowdler, who are both committed to pushing back against unimpeded global persecution of cryptocurrencies. By calling attention to years of organized efforts by government agencies to specifically target cryptocurrency projects, their hope is that the public will see and demand an end to these unjust violations of individual liberty. 

Specific grievances which motivated this initiative include grave concerns over government agencies’ obstruction of individuals’ livelihoods, defamation of character, and libelous false accusations which could tarnish the names of individuals for years to come, long after legal actions…

TEL AVIV, Israel, 13th October, 2020, // ChainWire //

MarketAcross, a world leader in blockchain public relations and marketing services, is pleased to announce the launch of Chainwire, an automated press release distribution service which provides guaranteed coverage and in-depth reports. Chainwire will be a one-stop-shop for the distribution of press releases in the cryptocurrency and blockchain sector. The launch marks the first time that advertisers can reach leading publications in the crypto media with the click of a button. 

While most industries have some kind of PR newswire service, the cryptocurrency sector has become a victim of its own rapid pace of growth over recent years. Since the ICO boom of 2017, there has been a proliferation of blockchain and crypto-focused projects, exchanges, investment firms, and marketing agencies, along with niche news and informational content sites. 

However, the infrastructure to connect this complex ecosystem has been slow to come up to speed, meaning that existing newswire services don’t reach their target audience. It’s estimated that one in five people own cryptocurrencies, so there is currently a significant missed opportunity to reach a massive global readership. 

As a newswire service dedicated to the crypto and blockchain space, Chainwire aims to address this gap. Press releases are distributed to leading publications, offering guaranteed coverage to reach audiences worldwide. The system is integrated with publishers and blogs, enabling accurate reporting via a user-friendly dashboard. It also…

How do cross-chain transaction networks work?

Published

cross-chain transactions

Blockchain technology was initially thought to be an all-in-one solution, where all the transactions would take place on a single chain. However, this idea was deemed impractical with time due to certain limitations and constraints arising within the system scalability area.

If blockchains are to live up to the expectations, then the blockchain technology should allow atomic transactions over various blockchains that are interconnected. A single blockchain may even be split into multiple chains that cooperate.

The concept of cross chains is understood as the ability of two operating blockchains to exchange information with each other in order to form a network to process transactions. Cross-chain transaction networks allow multiple blockchains to pass over information to one another.

The use of blockchain platforms like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple has highlighted scalability issues over time. These limitations in the present blockchain technology have hindered its full potentials and benefits. Exactly where cross-chain technology comes in to resolve such scalability constraints faced by blockchain technology.

Cross blockchain compatibility

The cross-blockchain compatibility issue arises whenever we talk about multiple blockchains. Incompatibility is because not all of the blockchains use similar protocols. Each blockchain system communicates according to its standards.

The lack of a standardized protocol of intercommunication between the blockchain networks cripples the blockchain technology’s scalability, here comes in cross-blockchain compatibility. The concept allows blockchains to communicate without any…
