Ex-IGT official Ashish Tawakley has taken up the role.

Ashish Tawakley, formerly of IGT, has been announced as the new Chief Commercial Officer of CasinoCoin Foundation, the non-profit entity supporting the CasinoCoin cryptocurrency.

Tawakley brings 15 years of gaming experience to the role, and will work closely with the Foundation’s Board of Trustees and Advisory Board. He will also be involved in advancing the Foundation’s main aim of promoting the adoption and best-use practices of CasinoCoin, and will lead their business development in European regulated gambling markets.

Tawakley told TotallyGaming.com: “I’m really excited to join CasinoCoin, having followed mounting interest in all things Blockchain, over the last 12-18 months. There are lots of opinions about the merits of cryptocurrency and blockchain in gaming, but for me it boils down to utility and simplicity. CasinoCoin has both.

“A payment solution that provides an intersection between the growing crypto gaming community, and the tightly regulated gaming market. CasinoCoin aims to work with ALL regulated operators and regulators, and offers a safe, secure and transparent solution for crypto gaming.”  

John Caldwell, Director of Advocacy, also told TotallyGaming.com: “To me, it was critical to have someone who comes from an operator background.  Ash not only has that, but also a product background within the space. We're a product focused organisation, so having someone who thinks product first is doubly beneficial.”

CasinoCoin’s Bankroll Manager (BRM) solution for online operators is in testing and compliance now, and will be ready for market soon. Moving forward, the foundation also plans to unveil the first blockchain system designed specifically to be an online/offline solution for brick and mortar gaming casinos.

Totally Gaming says: Ashish Tawakley combines a developed knowledge of cryptocurrency with a wealth of gambling industry expertise, and is therefore an ideal appointment for CasinoCoin Foundation. With the Foundation very much still in its infancy, an experienced head at the helm will ensure things move in the right direction.
