The GBA Gaming Group is a new working group established to explore the development and implementation of Distributed Autonomous Lottery models.

Join members of the GBA for an online discussion about regulatory matters and technology implications related to raising funds via blockchain gaming applications for city, county, state, or provincial entities and charitable organizations.

Charitable gaming as we know it is primarily a land-based operation nonprofits rely upon as a means to raise funds for their causes and communities.  Microbial threats have disrupted that model and the casino gaming industry, impacting the tax contribution to the marketplace.  A digital transformation of the charitable gaming industry addresses the unmet needs of  Charitable gaming which has an increasing place in the global gaming industry.  Community organizations offer an extended economic impact beyond the regulated gaming market.  This strength is leveraged through technological integration and community.  Regulations have the greatest affect as the gaming industry dramatically mobilizes.  Organizations need to plan, prepare and promote public policies that are competitive and inclusive of charitable gaming.  This is significant to local, altruistic efforts, creating a ripple of social and community development.  New authorized gaming models, mobile technology and blockchain applications are leveraged to benefit stakeholders and enhance the management and regulatory landscape.

The GBA Gaming Group is planning to produce a series of panel discussions from September 2020-February 2021, leading up to the Government Blockchain Week in Washington D.C.,  in March.

The first Gaming Group panel discussion, introduces the new work group, invites new members to the group and will provide a gaming industry overview and explore the roles and responsibilities of the Gaming Work Group in support of the GBA and members at-large.  Gaming and blockchain developers discuss questions and answers posed by the GBA and works to identify specific GBA Gaming Group goals to benefit the organization and its members.  Participants are encouraged to provide feedback on meaningful approaches to distributed autonomous lottery models and surrounding supportive applications.
