INTRALOT’s Bill Keleris Wins First Place at Bloomen Blockchain Hackathon
INTRALOT is proud to announce that our own Bill Keleris, Automation Test Engineer, is the winner of Bloomen Blockchain Hackathon, an international project that is co-funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 program and coordinated by a consortium of leading companies. The project explores how Blockchain technology could be used for better management of digital media assets and the global competition took place as a digital event during the Bloomen week on May 28-29, 2020.
INTRALOT Group CEO, Dr. Chris Dimitriadis commented: “I would like to congratulate Bill, a distinguished member of INTRALOT’s professional engineers, for his great achievement to build a novel decentralized application. Leveraging the bleeding edge technology of Blockchain, lottery and gaming industry will be introduced to new business and operating models that can accelerate their digital-led transformation.”
“I would like to thank all contributors of this great event for giving me this remarkable opportunity and made it such a wonderful experience,” said Bill Keleris. “I always wanted to create a social platform with music content which will be free, easy to use, and accessible by everyone based on Blockchain technologies and the Bloomen Hackathon was the right event. I am proud to be a member of INTRALOT family, a dynamic company that leads the gaming intelligence with innovation, integrity, and inspiration”.
The challenge for the participants was to create an application exploiting new technological, social, and economic approaches that have been introduced in the era of Blockchain. Bill has presented “Music.Book”, a concept of a music community, based on Blockchain technology. The core idea is that of a direct connection between fans and musicians in a transparent and safe digital Blockchain environment, where fans can support their preferred artist using cryptocurrency.
