I'm 99.9% sure I know who bought and I'm willing to 'bet' on it!

His name is Jez San, one of the UK’s best known technology entrepreneurs and current owner of (a very popular poker website).
Did you know that Jez and Eric both attended the Bitcoin London conference on July 2nd, 2013?
Here's the video proof:
Eric Voorhees: (@ 0m:53s)
Jez San: (@ 1m34s)
According to reports, Jez's net worth is estimated to be over 200 million pounds. However, what most people don't know about Jez is that he is a HUGE risk taker. Even though 3D poker seemed to be a laughable idea at the time, Jez pursued it and made it very successful.
Personally, I think this was an extremely smart move by Jez. If PKR decides to make a huge push into Bitcoin gambling, the SatoshiDice brand would be a great asset. Maybe SatoshiPoker or even SatoshiCasino might be in the cards. ;)
Let's see how this theory plays out.

2018 Blockchain Thoughts By Jez

Speaking in the latest edition of EGR Technology FunFair founder and CEO Jez San shared his vision on how the Blockchain technology landscape could change over the course of 2018.
The headline prediction, and one Jez has touched on in the past, is the idea Ethereum will become the blockchain of choice. The idea Ethereum will prevail over bitcoin stems from Jez’s belief that it can continue to evolve and power the applications that will drive the next technology age: “The potential market of blockchains that use smart contacts, like Ethereum, dwarfs that of ‘store of value’ chains (i.e. bitcoin).”
He argues that if you think of bitcoin as DOS and Ethereum as Windows or Mac OS, it highlights the role Ethereum will play in bringing blockchain technology to the masses: “There is nothing wrong with DOS. It came first and was an essential part of the computer’s success, but computers only went mainstream when Windows and Mac OS appeared. DOS is difficult to learn, tricky to program and few applications ever ran on it. Windows and Mac OS support and encourage applications to be built and are ultimately easier for people to use.
Thanks to this adoption of the technology, Jez envisages more and more organisations will begin to explore how blockchain can impact their businesses; “Large global companies like Sony, MasterCard and Comcast are partnering up or building and patenting their own technology, while IBM has informed a major collaboration with food and CPG brands like Walmart and Unilever. As these brands continue to find ways to make blockchain work for them and improve their industries, it will increase consumer awareness and take us closer to mass adoption.”
In relation to how all the above effects the online gambling industry, Jez discussed the potential for ‘traditional online casinos’ to pilot blockchain technology, and not just the ‘smaller, more nimble operators’. In fact, he believes by the end of 2018, blockchain gaming technology will be trialled by mainstream online casinos, moving away from the existing centralised server model. This change to the entire casino will be executed on the blockchain, Jez argues, will transform the industry and will benefit players and the casinos with the players in particular finally guaranteed both a fair game and protection from the rogue casinos.
Thanks to the above, he believes more blockchain casino games will be made and played. Arguing blockchains provide a more ‘fair, transparent, cost-effective, global and more secure platform than today’s centralised models’, he also focussed on the value of smart contracts and how they are the ‘perfect tool for gaming’. Those benefits would lead to more developers ‘exploring technology’ and helping more players to become familiar with the benefits.
With the increased use of the technology will come more regulation. “We anticipate increased regulatory scrutiny of the blockchain from financial, gambling, and data protection bodies and in many ways we welcome that trend. We’ll see regulations introduced in a number of countries this year, with Gibraltar leading the way in gaming – having commuted to produce legislation this month.”
“Though gaming regulators typically lag a little behind their financial counterparts, we expect interest from many regulated territories in how the blockchain could be beneficial in achieving their licensing objectives. For some of the more commercial jurisdictions this will mean concrete action such as the Malta Gambling Authority’s recent announcement of a ‘regulatory sandbox’ in which they’re inventing companies to play; while for others we suspect 2018 will be a “watching brief”.

Ethereum-Developers are Sceptical of ICOs and You should be too

What's going on: Now that Bitcoin's Segwit2X isn't happening and Altcoins are on the rise again, it's a good time to take a closer look at what's happening at Ethereum and ICOs in general. Criticism on Initial Coin Offerings (= giving money to a startup that in most cases doesn't yet exist, that's run by people you don't know with a product that doesn't exist and / or you don't understand) is nothing new.
So why do we talk about it then? Well, now even renowned Ethereum-developers are weighing in and what they have to say is not pretty: "The problem right now is that too many people outside of the blockchain space focus on tokens and ICOs; frankly speaking, it's the least interesting part of ethereum," said Fabian Vogelstellar, the guy behind the widely used ERC20-standard, in an interview with Coindesk.
An while ICOs may be Ethereum's "killer app", that helped it climb to the price and market capitalization it has now, there is still a lot to improve. "Many [ICOs] seem like a cash grab from people who were unable to raise money from venture capitalists. In many cases, these are poorly thought out tokens predicated on centralized products," Jack du Rose, co-founder of ethereum startup Colony, said.
Why should I care: I think ICOs are a revolutionary way to raise money, but it's also a paradise for scammers and get-rich-schemes. As you may know there is this rule of thumb that 90% of startups fail, even if they have a product and a good team behind them. So what is going to happen with all the ICOs going on, that have neither of it? We don't know yet, but my guess is, that it will not end pretty (you should check out this article, if you want to read about a, in my opinion, realistic scenario).
I'm sure that there are and have been legit ICOs by talented teams with good products and a bright future. But we can only guess who those are and if you plan on investing your hard earned money on ICOs, you should check out this quote from FunFair-founder and CEO Jez San Obe:
"You should have a product before you ICO, you should know how to run a company, you shouldn't have an anonymous team and you should release a prototype first. When you describe a technology that no one can understand, you can hoodwink people. People throw money at it, you raise $100 million dollars and still don’t know how to build it."
