A Swiss company DECENT Foundation, focused on using blockchain to address the most prevalent issues of the digital era, is going to host the fifth workshop meetup on March 27 at 0100 Campus building. This time the topic is DECENT's own mobile gaming platform that is created in a close partnership with games distributor Dragonfly. Product Manager of DECENT Tomáš Koprušák will join the event.

The mobile gaming platform - ALAX, is actually a distribution platform that utilizes ALAX tokens to allow customers pay for the game and in-game purchases directly to the developer. This approach significantly reduces the price of the content, expedites the transaction and on top of that - game developers can exchange ALAX tokens for fiat currency of their liking at any time. Along with the native token, the platform uses blockchain to record all of the transactions that will certainly help developers attain a much clearer overview of the state of the market.

Since partnering with Dragonfly we have been committed to providing a framework where users have a method of payment that is as easy as an SMS payment, but where collection would be instant, and with no commission. We are proud to have made this possible with the launch of ALAX.

The expected launch of the Bakkt will take place on December 12 of this year. It is reported by The Block, citing informed sources.

Also, the material states that the investment bank Goldman Sachs does not plan to create custodial cryptocurrency solutions based on the Bakkt infrastructure. At the same time, the bank is considering the possibility of trading futures on a new platform.

In a recent Fortune interview with Bakkt, Kelly Lofler said that the cryptocurrency market is on the verge of a revolution comparable in size to the one that occurred on the energy market in the early 2000s.

Greater institutional participation in the digital asset markets requires secure and regulated custody solutions. We are impressed by BitGo’s product, unique services, and the management team. We view our investment in BitGo as an exciting opportunity to contribute to the evolution of this critical market infrastructure.

Bakkt is a cryptocurrency unit of the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), which is the operator of the New York Stock Exchange. Giants such as Microsoft and Starbucks are taking part in creating of the new project, which is positioned as an “ecosystem for digital assets”.

The new platform will offer deliverable bitcoin futures to the market (unlike the settlement contracts for CBOE and CME, these are based on the underlying asset). The platform will support multiple fiat currencies.
