In the fourth episode of the CoinGeek Weekly Livestream, host Kurt Wuckert Jr. talks to our gaming industry reporter Rebecca Liggero-Fontana and Gorilla DAO founder and community manager Patrick Thompson. Becky, also known as \u2018Bitcoin Becky,\u2019 is a bona fide expert in the gambling industry and has over a decade of work experience with Calvin Ayre, a gambling industry pioneer. After years of interviewing senior professionals across the space, she says she\u2019s acquired a \u2018birds eye view\u2019 of the industry. As always, Kurt was outright open off the bat, uttering a remark about the Bitcoin gaming industry\u2014\u201cit has a long history of not working very well.\u201d This led to an exchange of stories about Bitcoin\u2019s rough beginning within the gaming industry. \u201cBitcoin started as black market,\u201d Becky says. \u201cMost people used Bitcoin for reasons like, they couldn\u2019t wire money to play or they wanted to remain anonymous.\u201d\u00a0 With online gaming platforms like Peergame and BitBoss, Becky believes there are new opportunities to be explored and to be excited about. \u201cWhat I love about Peergame is the Peerjoin that they just launched which is an opportunity for people to launch their own white label which I think is exactly the type of solutions that need to be offered to the gaming industry today.\u201d Becky spoke highly of BitBoss as well, and its cashless casinos system and hopes the company would make progress despite tough regulators. \u201cThat has been really exciting for land based,\u201d she says. \u201cIt\u2019s a bit of challenge because the regulator in the land based space especially in the U.S. are really old school, slow movers.\u201d Becky makes a strong point saying BitBoss\u2019 cashless casinos system would do really well in a pandemic. \u201cWith COVID, you have people who are afraid of touching cash, they don\u2019t want to touch casino chips, so BitBoss has a great solution for this,\u201d she says. Kurt agrees, saying, \u201cThere is a global opportunity for casinos on the Internet and on Blockchain.\u201d Becky replies with an idea she thinks would work well with operators to come into the gaming space. \u201cA good opportunity too would be to build some sort of big affiliate tracking software for operators in the gaming space that are not really into putting everything into Bitcoin or the blockchain, they can start with this.\u201d A question from a viewer then led to a somewhat contentious discussion. @Thrills came up with an analogy between the online gaming industry and Uber. He asks, \u201cDo we think that the \u2018Uber\u2019 of gaming industry will succeed, predating regulators or will the compliant people succeed?\u201d\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0 Becky makes a good argument mentioning Bodog as an example. \u201cBodog was in a gray market but they were the most trustworthy brand, they never missed a pay out, so they never did anything bad.\u201d Kurt agrees to a certain degree affirming that a good entrepreneur who breaks the envelope is fine, as long as they serve their customers well. \u201cIf you\u2018re going to push the envelope like Uber did, they didn\u2019t wait for regulators, they went out and said\u2014we\u2019re going to show the world could be innovative.\u201d Next up on the show, Kurt talks to the creator, founder and acting community manager of the Gorilla DAO, Patrick Thompson, who some might refer to as the \u2018great ape.\u2019 To start, Kurt asks, \u201cWhat is the DAO?\u201d Patrick explains, DAO stands for Decentralized Autonomous Organization. \u201cIt was originally an idea that started on Ethereum, it\u2019s an organization, an entity governed by its members.\u201d The idea is everybody within the DAO is able to create a proposal that other members can vote on, ultimately directing the DAO on what it should do. Kurt recalls the DAO hack as the cause of the Ethereum split. \u201cIt launched as a smart contract, got a bug and people got robbed.\u201d What ensued after was controversial, he says. \u201cThey did a roll back, that was super contentious given that blockchain\u2019s are not immutable.\u201d This brings Kurt to question\u2014\u201cWhat makes the Gorilla DAO different from the original DAO, fundamentally?\u201d Patrick points out, everything on Gorilla DAO will eventually run on smart contracts but for now, it\u2019s a work in progress. In addition, Patrick emphasized the significance of the Gorilla DAO on the Bitcoin SV blockchain. \u201cWith BSV, we say anything Ethereum can do, we can do better,\u201d he explains. \u201cHowever from time to time, there\u2019s not much to show for. I think one reason that inspired the DAO to be created, is to push the boundaries of what Bitcoin can do.\u201d\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0 So, what\u2019s with the name and the reference to gorillas and apes? One might ask. \u201cI see a lot of synergy with blockchain and digital currency,\u201d Patrick explains. \u201cWhen people buy, I hear them say, I\u2019m going to APE in,\u2019 thus the reference.\u201d As of Tuesday March 2, Patrick says the total supply of APE is at 2.1 million APE tokens with a little over 15,000 tokens in circulation. Each APE token is US$1 and there are approximately 83 BSV in the Gorilla treasury. Well, this got Kurt\u2019s attention. \u201cThe nerd in me is buzzing,\u201d he quips, adding all the possibilities of where the BSVs can be used. But the pessimist in Kurt comes right back asking, \u201cHow do we stop the DAO from getting lost in minutiae?\u201d \u201cGorilla has a lot of gravity,\u201d Patrick explains. \u201cIt\u2019s never been done on BSV before, I think the smartest minds in the world are on Bitcoin, and for that reason that skill set are able to solve crucial problems not only in Bitcoin but in the greater blockchain industry.\u201d Some quirky remarks on the comments section box are too good to pass up on and worth a mention. One says, \u201cLet\u2019s go bananas for Gorilla DAO,\u201d while another said, \u201cI want to be an Ape!\u201d Well, to be an Ape, Patrick says, \u201cGo to Ape.Capital\/transact, get your Money Button wallet ready, type in an amount of APE token you want, you\u2019ll then get your APE token, and BOOM you\u2019re a member.\u201d Watch episode 4 of Kurt\u2019s CoinGeek Weekly Livestream here: https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v8_5E1CeoenQ Check out previous episodes of the CoinGeek Weekly Livestream on YouTube.
