Australia-based gaming token for sports betting, gaming, fantasy sports, PlayChip, has appointed Brett King, CEO of mobile bank startup Moven, to its advisory board. This closely follows the venture surpassing one million users and PlayUp’s token-only acquisition of US gaming platform 123bet.
King joins an advisory board that includes quantum physicist and Cryptyk CEO Adam Weigold, ANZ Managing Director of Showdown (the exclusive distributor of Twitch.tv) Scott Wenkart, and Dr Stephane Savannah, co-author to 57 different blockchain patents with nChain.
Humble Australian roots
In addition to Moven, King hosts the radio show on FinTech called Breaking Banks, and has appeared as a financial commentator on CNBC, BBC, ABC, Fox and Bloomberg. He has six books published on banking and the future of finance, the most recent of which rose to the top ten non-fiction bestsellers in North America.
“Brett King is a wonderful addition to our advisory board,” says PlayUp CEO Daniel Simic. “Much like the PlayChip, Brett began from humble Australian roots and aspired to make a global impact. We applaud his achievements to date and welcome his insights into augmenting our project and delivering it to our large global user base.”
“PlayChip is at the forefront of the blockchain revolution in fantasy sports and sports betting,” says King. “I’ve been very impressed by their progress throughout 2018 and I’m honoured to join an Australian platform that is set to redefine online gaming as we know it. I feel very big things are to come of this project.”
