Cryptocurrency gaming is one of the fast-growing sectors in the blockchain industry with adoption at an all-time high due to various reasons like faster deposits and withdrawals, transparency, fairness and above all the lack of geographical limitations when it comes to making transactions. Even though the blockchain gambling platforms continue to be one of the major drivers of cryptocurrency usage, many of them are still lagging behind when it comes to innovation as they attempt to reduce the time and resources needed for development by implementing existing available solutions than creating custom solutions to meet their needs.
While the practice of using white-labeled or third-party games and software is not a big deal, it does limit the flexibility for platforms to provide features and value addition to its users. At the same time, not all the white-labeled games are transparent or provably fair, which also impacts the credibility of the platform as a whole. If that’s not enough, there have been few instances where the claims of some platforms to be provably fair was found to be untrue, which again doesn’t add much confidence to the gaming community to wager their money on them.
