The companies discuss this and more in a Gaming & Technology panel at
G2E Asia on Wednesday, May 22

HONG KONG–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Blockchain gaming platform Alphaslot and Synergy Blue, the premier
creator of skill-based games and platforms for an emerging class of
players, have announced an agreement to explore bringing innovative
entertainment solutions using blockchain technology to casino gaming in
the American, Asian, and European markets. The strategic alliance allows
Synergy Blue to explore how Alphaslot’s blockchain API could be used in
its leading skill-based casino gaming products.

At G2E
Asia
on Wednesday, May 22, 2019, Synergy Blue CEO Georg Washington
will be discussing this topic, among others, on a panel moderated by
Alphaslot’s COO, Albert Yu. The panel discussion gathers industry
leaders to explore a wide range of ideas on industry innovations and
regulatory challenges in various gaming segments. Panelists will explore
Asia’s online gaming future as well as the potential expansion of
skill-based gaming.

Alphaslot’s blockchain API is the main interface for casino gaming
equipment to connect with players on the casino floor via a blockchain
network, allowing interactive gaming experiences in a transparent and
trusted environment for both casino operators and regulators. Synergy
Blue provides certified, skill-based games for the casino market.
According to Synergy Blue’s recent survey of over 100 casinos, more than
70 percent plan to adopt skill-based games. Two-thirds of the US’s $40
billion in gaming revenue is from slot machines, but casinos want to add
skill-based games in order to help attract a new generation of gamblers.

“Alphaslot is leading the way for blockchain adoption in the gambling
industry,” said Georg Washington, CEO of Synergy Blue. “While
microtransactions, unique award items, and soft upgrades (skins, etc.)
are unheard of in the casino/gambling world, they are pervasive in the
video game market. Our goal is to explore how to leverage blockchain
technology to help attract the next generation of gambler and provide
innovative entertainment experiences. We are excited about exploring
blockchain technology and working with regulators, casino properties,
and Alphaslot to ensure compliance and to help spark adoption throughout
the industry.”

Raymond Chan, CEO and co-founder of Alphaslot, said, “This agreement
with Synergy Blue in America will give us an opportunity to expand into
the emerging market of skill-based casino gaming, which could lead to
demand for interactive products powered by blockchain technology. Our
new blockchain technology, combined with Synergy Blue’s gaming
innovation, could help shape the future of the casino gaming industry.
Alphaslot and Synergy Blue are taking our first steps with a serious and
continuous commitment. We already had great success presenting our
vision at the London ICE show in February and we’re very excited to
showcase again our blockchain API at G2E Asia in Macau.”

The agreement between Alphaslot and Synergy Blue underscores the
interest of both parties towards the future of blockchain technology and
the industry.

GREENVILLE, S.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–John Warren, founder and chairman of Greenville-based Lima One Capital, has sold his majority ownership stake in the company to current minority partners. Warren founded Lima One in 2011 and has grown the company to more than 300 full and part-time employees around the country.

Under Warren’s leadership at Lima One, the company doubled in growth for four straight years and grew its headquarters in Greenville to more than 160 full-time employees.

“It has been a true honor to lead Lima One Capital. This company is filled with incredible men and women who work hard every day to serve our customers. While it is bittersweet to leave the company, I am proud of everything we have accomplished from right here in Greenville. Lima One has a very bright future ahead of it,” Warren said.

Lima One Capital’s headquarters and leadership team will remain in Greenville. All current jobs located in Greenville will remain in the city.

“Lima One has been a critical part of Greenville’s success over the past ten years. When leaders like John choose to build their headquarters right here in Greenville, it shows other business leaders the benefits of locating their companies in the Upstate,” said Knox White, mayor of Greenville.

Lima One’s CEO Jeff Tennyson, who joined the company in 2018 when Warren ran for governor of South Carolina, said, “While we will miss John day-to-day and the meaningful impact he has had on Lima One’s success, our management team remains fully in place, and we’re well positioned to continue our growth and success. The FixNFlip and rental investor markets continue to expand, and with our innovative products, strong customer experience and great people here in Greenville, Lima One has a terrific future ahead as a national lender.”

In 2014, Lima One was recognized as the Fastest Growing Company in South Carolina and was named as one of the Best Places to Work in South Carolina in 2016. Lima One has raised billions of dollars from institutional investors and is on pace to originate $1.25 billion in 2019.

“It is hard to overstate the positive impact Lima One has had on Greenville and the Upstate. Over the past ten years, Lima One has brought high-quality, high-paying jobs to the city and improved our entire city’s quality of life,” said John Uprichard, founder and CEO of Find Great People, an executive search firm and staffing company based in Greenville. “Lima One and John Warren have been great for our city and our region.”
