Rahul Sood, CEO of Unikrn, said: “For a lit­tle over a year, Unikrn EU has been work­ing with the Malta Gam­ing Author­ity to ac­quire our new li­cense.

“Malta has some of the high­est reg­u­la­tory re­quire­ments and pro­cesses; they are by ev­ery mea­sure the gold stan­dard and one of the most re­spected au­thor­i­ties for re­spon­si­ble and eth­i­cal wa­ger­ing.”

The firm’s pend­ing Euro­pean launch fol­lows the con­clu­sion of its ‘UnikoinGold; crypto to­ken sale which has helped the firm raise +$30 mil­lion to date. Unikrn gov­er­nance be­lieves that its crypto to­ken the ‘sin­gle most suc­cess­ful and widely dis­trib­uted to­ken in the es­ports and gam­ing in­dus­tries’.

High pro­file back­ers of the UnikoinGold to­ken in­clude US tech in­vestor Mark Cuban and Brock Pierce, plus Crypto VC’s CoinCir­cle, Blockchain Cap­i­tal, Pan­tera Cap­i­tal, and Draper Dragon.

Join­ing Unikrn Euro­pean ven­ture, Em­manuel de Ro­han Chabot, CEO of Ze­turf and Ze­bet and co-founder of RBP backed long-term plans “RBP has over 300,000 loyal reg­is­tered cus­tomers, and our sites re­ceive over a mil­lion unique vis­i­tors per month, mak­ing us (the) leader in France when it comes to on­line bet­ting.

“RBP will be a strong part­ner to Unikrn to help bring reg­u­lated, safe, and le­gal es­ports bet­ting in mar­kets across Europe, and we look for­ward to work­ing with their ex­cep­tional team.”
