Crucial Compliance to engage nChain’s blockchain interface platform

Crucial Compliance has entered into an agreement to integrate the Kensei blockchain interface platform, in a bid to enhance its ‘Crucial Player Protection’ system.

The CCP tracks and logs key events in player behaviour, which are then used to create a history of player review, interaction, and intervention throughout the customer lifecycle. 

By leveraging Kensei, Crucial Compliance says that the system will offer “a secure and cost-effective solution that creates an independently verifiable log of key actions and interactions,” which it adds will comply with the drive for data integrity from international regulators.

“We are excited to partner with Crucial Compliance to bring data integrity to the online gaming industry’s responsible gaming efforts,” commented David Washburn, nChain’s chief executive officer

“Kensei enables tamper-proof data notarisation, which is critical for gaming operators to prove they are acting responsibly and in line with all regulatory requirements. 

“The addition of data integrity capabilities offered by Kensei requires no change to an operator’s existing workflow so provides an attractive solution to the challenges faced by the industry.”

Kensei, launched in July 2021, provides a set of APIs that allow seamless integration between a customer’s existing data management processes and the BSV blockchain. 

The company says that the tamper-proof audit log of timestamped data provided by the Kensei integration will increase a gaming operator’s confidence when replying to requests to prove they have discharged their responsibilities. 

Furthermore, it is added that it provides “irrefutable evidence” for an operator to challenge alleged breaches of their license conditions and/or defend against litigation.

“This is a marked step-change for the gaming industry, using relatively new but proven technology in a way to mitigate corporate risk and also to give regulators peace of mind that what they are shown is absolute and undeniable,” said Paul Foster, Crucial Compliance CEO.

“Partnering with nChain allows us to offer a cost-effective solution for gaming operators and to provide regulators a single undeniable version of the truth, eventually across all operators.”

Crucial Compliance will work with existing customers and regulators to bring Kensei-enabled data integrity to responsible gaming activities.
