This month’s community spotlight we’re speaking to @Marco to find out a bit more about him, why he loves CasinoCoin, and to hear about how he’s been involved in the community so far. Read back through previous months installments on our blog, and join the lovely, lively and growing CasinoCoin Discord Community.
Marcel (aka @Marco), is from Beirut, Lebanon. He’s a pharmacist working in the medical sales department at a pharmaceutical company.
Here’s what @Marco had to say during our chat.
How did you get into crypto, and what attracted you to CasinoCoin specifically?
I’m very new to the world of cryptocurrency, well in comparison to many others in the CSC community. I got interested in crypto, during all the hype last December (2017), since then I have been actively educating people in my region about blockchain and its benefits. There is a lot of misconception about the industry, especially where I am from, which prompted me and a friend to start up a local CryptoSpective community to help educate people and provide a source of information around blockchain and cryptocurrency. I don’t have any experience in the gambling industry, but I occasionally play poker, and a bit of blackjack!
How have you been involved in the CasinoCoin Community?
I have developed an android widget that can be downloaded from the play store. I wanted to create a tool that allows you to track the price of your favorite project, without needing to obsessively refresh your tracking websites! Now the CSC community can observe this info easily on their phone via one app. I believe it’s a useful tool, and I’m happy I could share it with our community.
What do you hope for the future of CasinoCoin, and what would you say to anyone interested in finding out more?
For me CasinoCoin is a breakthrough project. I think it could change a lot of views about blockchain technology and its use. Not only do I think it’s a great investment, but I see it as a game changer in terms of how people will perceive DLT [distributed ledger technology]. CSC isn’t about making a quick buck, it creates a solution for an industry (gambling / gaming), with a real use case for blockchain technology. It’s history in the making, and I want to be a part of it!
It took me a long time to find CSC, looking through many projects filtering, narrowing them down to that ONE which I thought would make a difference. On top of all of that, the community is gold! Real people, who are very welcoming and supportive. With everyone contributing to build a great virtual ‘home’ that feels like we are all hanging out together having a beer, or some jello’s ;-)!
