What do they say?
Referring to Ayre's decision to shut down his crypto news website CalvrinAyre.com, Fontana remarked, “This is a real statement about how excited you are about Bitcoin and how much the gambling industry actually fits into what's going on with Bitcoin. There is no need to have two different news sites, all news on CoinGeek, because the gambling industry will also become integrated with this technology.”
Eyre responded: “Not only this industry, but all industries that use data will be integrated. My prediction is everything exciting that will happen in the next 10 years in online gaming - except for the games themselves - but everything else, in doing business, running a business, paying a business - it will all be done on the blockchain.
“But the decision to shut it down (CalvinAyre.com) was actually my realization that there was no longer a need to have another site, because all the fun stuff that appeals to me too – of course, all the innovation and madness – happens on CoinGeek” .
