Gaming Standards Association creates gaming blockchain committee

12 February 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Gaming Standards Association (GSA) and Gaming Standards Association Europe have created a new Technical Committee dedicated to blockchain use. GSA made the announcement from its stand at ICE Totally Gaming, where the organization celebrated its 20th anniversary.

Blockchain technology is poised to revolutionize data sharing and security, and has the ability to provide regulatory authorities with previously unobtainable levels of transparency. GSA's new Blockchain Technical Committee will collaboratively address the technology and advise on possible areas where standards could be developed.

"GSA was created to help drive innovation in the gaming industry for the benefit of manufacturers, suppliers, operators and regulators," said GSA President Peter DeRaedt. "By creating a new Blockchain Committee, we are once again proving how, by creating a standard way to use technology, GSA is achieving our mission."

GSA Europe Managing Director Mark Pace said, "Many industries are evaluating how the blockchain technology can enhance data sharing security and increase operational transparency. GSA will launch this new committee and evaluate the creation of a gaming industry standard. This is very timely and may have significant impact on how companies can achieve GDPR and AML requirements."

GSA standards are created through a collaboration between volunteer representatives of its members. Over the past 20 years, more than 1,600 volunteers from more than 190 companies have contributed their expertise to create 15 GSA standards in nine committees. GSA's award-winning standards are in use around the world, driving the industry to innovation and growth.

GSA was born out of a globally recognized need to streamline processes and create standards that would spur growth, innovation and revenue. Gaming manufacturers, suppliers, operators and regulators have benefitted from GSA's mission to facilitate the identification, definition, development, promotion and implementation of standards to enable interoperability, innovation, education and communication for the benefit of the entire industry.

There is a level of GSA membership for every budget. Visit the website to learn more. Join GSA as a member today and join GSA on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.
