The increasing popularity of the virtual currencies and the number of partnerships formed between different blockchain platforms and companies clearly show the progress and application of the ‘new-found’ technology in real life scenarios. “The gaming industry can no longer be a stranger to the blockchain technology. FunFair provides blockchain-powered solutions with the potential to profoundly change the online gaming industry for both the operator and player.” (The official website of FunFair) FunFair continues to ensure that by using the latest Ethereum technology, they aim to provide fun, fast and fair online casino gaming experience.
The Online Casino Gaming Experience
The FunFair online casino gaming platform ensures the development of high-quality blockchain based 3D games on HTML5 that are fun to play. Compared to other platforms it is 10 times cheaper due to reduced gas costs, as claimed by the white paper of FunFair. Released in 2017, the FunFair platform has an open architecture that offers many opportunities to the developers. “Games built on the FunFair platform run directly in the browser on desktop and mobile devices without requiring an app download, completely eliminating one of the major pain-points of player onboarding.”
FunFair Technologies have created a platform that has the capability of launching numerous online casinos of different sizes and can be used from anywhere in the world. The operators and developers have the option to customise the games completely as well as offer their clients a range of traditional casino games like baccarat, roulette and blackjack. FunFair has realised the issue of unending waits (a minute or longer) for a dice roll. The player has to wait for the dice roll result as it waits for multiple blocks to be mined. FunFair is one of the first platforms to address this shortcoming. The technology behind FunFair has resulted in the creation of “truly instant blockchain games”. This is, in fact, the USP of FunFair.
FunFair Launches Closed Beta
FunFair Technologies had recently announced the launch of blockchain based casino platform in closed beta on Mainnet. The objective behind this was to enable anyone who is interested in running their own casino to build one on the FunFair platform. Through this move, it has now become much easier to launch online casinos. At the same time, the platform offers a strong security system for the players and ensures that it is a fair game. Transparency is one of the major issues the casinos face worldwide. Often customers claim that they had unfairly lost as the game was rigged. So, playing casinos online on a platform which is transparent is surely advantageous. The blockchain technology will bring in a new trend in the online gaming industry and offers transparency like no other medium. With the application of blockchain technology in the online gaming industry, all the transactions will be recorded (failed and successful gambles) that can be reviewed at a later date even.
“FunFair is yet again leading the pack as the first blockchain casino platform to launch a closed beta on Mainnet and we’ve been overwhelmed by the response for applications for it. We want to ensure that the experience on our platform is at the level our partners would expect when the service goes live. At the same time we continue to work on completing partnership agreements with operators, affiliates and more game developers, having signed up Spike Gaming last month, which is testament to our innovative technology and first class team”.
Jez San, CEO of FunFair Technologies
Advantages for the operators
- Lower cost: Depending on hardware, chargebacks and operational headcount, the operators will have to bear considerably less expenses. The infrastructure costs are, in short, reduced effectively. Due to blockchain automation, there is a decrease in security and technical staff.
- Access crypto audience: As the cryptocurrency community enlarges there will be more opportunities for growth. By implementing blockchain technology, FunFair intends to attract the crypto crowd as well as others to an all new online gaming experience.
- Ultra secure: The peer-to-peer ledger is not affected by a power outage, hardware failure or attack. The bets placed during a game is verified by consensus so there is no chance of rigging data. It is also impossible to alter data already stored on the blocks. Decentralisation and cryptography will also eliminate frauds and unnecessary payments.
- Simple setup: The FunFair casinos are easier, faster and cheaper to build compared to traditional technology. A simple setup is more likely to attract more gamers and prove to be more profitable to the operators.
The players will find the online casino games built with the help of FunFair technology fair, faster, secure as well as fun.
FunFair (FUN) lists among the top hundred cryptocurrencies at 85th position, according to coinmarketcap.com. The market cap of FUN at the time of writing shows approximately $135,003,543 USD approximately while volume (24h) is over $1,715,000 USD. (As of 11th June 2018)

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
