Wild Crypto, a new global lottery and eGaming platform built upon blockchain technology, has appointed William Trentini as chief executive.
The move comes as Wild Crypto prepares to launch its services next month, with the platform due to go live on January 20.
Wild Crypto will offer a range of proprietary lottery and gaming content, as well as games from a number of third-party suppliers.
Trentini takes on the role having spent over 20 years working in the financial industry across wealth management and investment banking, and more recently developing business opportunities across the crypto and egaming sectors.
“Since completing a hugely successful token sale in September, the Wild Crypto team has been hard at work to finalise a product that sets a new bar in blockchain gaming,” Trentini said.
“The Wild Crypto platform is innovative and robust, and will offer our players a world-class gaming experience utilising the very latest blockchain technology.”
In September, Wild Crypto completed a token sale raising 10,592 in Ether in the process to bring the platform to market.
Token sale participants can use their ‘WILD Tokens’ to play games on the Wild Crypto website, while others will be able to purchase tokens through the site using a number of cryptocurrencies via ShapeShift.
