The Universal Gaming Token has announced the Moven CEO as the latest addition to their advisory board.
PlayChip, the Universal Gaming Token, has announced the appointment of prominent Australian businessman Brett King to their advisory board.
The news further buoys the company following their landmark achievement of surpassing one million users and PlayUp’s token-only acquisition of US gaming platform 123bet.
Mr King provides a strong addition to an advisory board that already 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. Mr King is expected to provide valuable insight into the financial operations of the PlayChip both within Australia and the overseas markets in which it will operate.
The Australian thought-leader is known for his influence in many fields, recognised for his public speaking and writing endeavours as much as his business ventures. King hosts the #1 ranked 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.
Mr King is also the CEO of Moven, a $200m mobile bank start-up home to the world’s first smart bank account. Moven’s app is used around the globe with over a million users.
Perhaps most notably, King formerly advised the Obama administration on Fintech policy and the future of banking, and has had Chinese President Xi Jinping cite his book Augmented on the topic of Artificial Intelligence.
“Brett King is a wonderful addition to the PlayChip advisory board,” said PlayUp CEO Daniel Simic.
He added, “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.”
Mr King was equally effusive about joining the PlayChip team.
“PlayChip is at the forefront of the blockchain revolution in fantasy sports and sports betting,” he said.
“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.”
