Legendary poker stars unite in Team Breakout with a combined 38 World Series of Poker Bracelets
LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–September 16, 2014–
Breakout Gaming (BRO), a budding leader in cryptocurrency technology and game development, announced the launch of the first destination for online gaming and digital currency with the support of an all-star roster of sponsored players.
“We are going to shake up the gaming community with the world’s first cryptocurrency that has a dedicated ecosystem for its coins,” said core-partner and two-time back-to-back WSOP champion Johnny Chan. “We felt there was an untouched niche for digital currency enthusiasts to play digital games such as Poker, Blackjack, and Fantasy Sports, all while investing in the long-term opportunity of Breakout being the next go-to gaming destination.”
Although the cryptocurrency arena has seen a plethora of new coins, the fundamental flaw comes back to the lack of opportunities to actually spend the coins. Breakout Gaming has addressed this issue head-on with an entire ecosystem for coin investors to use their new currency in an exciting way.
An in-house, web based, exchange seamlessly converts Bitcoin (BTC) to Breakout Coin (BRO) with a cold storage solution to protect the currency, avoiding the opportunity for hackers to enter the servers. Breakout Gaming’s site will feature 88 different casino games including the popular Texas Hold ‘Em, Open Face Chinese Poker, in addition to a custom built Fantasy Sports betting platform.
In order to raise awareness and spark mainstream interest for the new Poker destination, Breakout has partnered with some of the World’s greatest players including the legendary Johnny Chan, Huck Seed, Jennifer Harman, Ted Forrest, Todd Brunson, Russia’s Vladimir Shchemelev, and more. Collectively the Breakout Poker Team has won over 38 World Series of Poker Bracelets.
“iGaming and cryptocurrency make a good pairing,” said David Gzesh, leading igaming/cryptocurrency attorney. “Breakout Gaming will be positioned to address both players’ desires for privacy and regulators’ demands to meet both KYC and AML rules. In that regard the BRO Coin launch will present a breakthrough in a layered design.”
“In life, we are always being told to work hard in order to play hard,” said sponsored player and partner Jennifer Harman. “At Breakout Gaming we’re offering the opportunity to have these two sides meet in an intelligently designed investment and gaming platform. It’s like an online gaming playground for the ‘cryptos’ of the world.”
