EOSBet becomes the first licensed blockchain gambling dApp on EOS

EOSBet, the blockchain-based gambling app, has received an online gaming license from Curaçao eGaming, a Caribbean island-based regulatory body. This license enables EOSBet to operate all forms of interactive online gambling. On EOSBet, players can wager EOS tokens to play two games: dice throwing and baccarat. As to why a permissionless platform needs a gambling license, the EOSBet team states that a license would add "trustworthiness and credibility to the project" and will enable the team to "work with more legitimate, large-scale partners."
