What is being said?

Referring to Ayre’s decision to close his crypto-news website, Fontana remarked: “It’s a real statement as to how excited you are about Bitcoin and how the gambling industry actually fits right in to what’s happening with Bitcoin. There’s no need to have two different news sites, all the news is with CoinGeek because the gambling industry is going to become so integrated with this technology too.”

Ayre replied: “Not only this industry  but every industry that uses data is going to be integrated. My prediction is everything exciting that’s going to happen in the next 10 years in online gaming – other than the games themselves – but everything else, in the running of business, the operating of the business, the payments of the business – that’s all going to be done on the blockchain.

“But the decision to shut it ( down was really my realisation that there’s no need to have the other site anymore because all the fun stuff that I’m attracted too – of course all the innovation and craziness – that’s happening on CoinGeek.”
