BlockChain Innovations Corp. (BCI) has appointed Matthew Stafford as its new chief executive.

Stafford joins the company after three years with NYX Gaming Group and, more recently, Scientific Games after the two firms merged.

Prior to this, Stafford was assistant general counsel for land-based slot games manufacturer Aruze Gaming America.

BCI operates as an international blockchain technology supplier that serves the regulated gaming industry.

“BCI’s blockchain solution and products are beyond a doubt the most dynamic and market ready for the wagering industry, it’s the backbone of any digital offering of today,” Stafford said.

He added: “BCI’s technology has been developed since 2016 and augments wagering functionality for gaming companies across all sectors of the industry from sportsbooks and exchanges to e-sports, daily fantasy and lotteries.

“I have been so impressed with Morris Mosseri, BCI co-founder and chief technology officer, both by his technical expertise but also by his vision to have begun building tomorrow’s technology yesterday.”

David Wang, chairman of the board at BCI, added: “Positioning Matt as our leader is part of our plan to become the preeminent blockchain technology solutions provider in real money wagering and peer-to-peer regulated markets.

“His experience across all land based and digital gaming verticals coupled with his legal and regulatory background makes him an excellent fit for our future growth.

“Matt provides BCI a wealth of knowledge and enthusiastic confidence from his years of proven leadership.”
