The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) is willing to appoint a new chief executive. In its job post, MGA stated that it’s looking for a “dynamic, passionate and highly influential strategic thinker” to lead its regulatory efforts. The appointee will define the regulator’s strategy, lead and manage all its initiatives, and reformulate its branding strategy, taking into consideration its financial performance and the communication between the board and all other stakeholders.
What Is Expected of the New CEO?
MGA is the gaming control board in Malta. It regulates all forms of gambling in the country. Thus, the CEO has to be knowledgeable about the technologies that will define the future of the gaming industry and the usage of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin SV (BSV).
The latter is very important, as 2020 proved that BSV is the future of the gaming industry. Several gaming startups built innovative products and services on the BSV blockchain, solving some of the challenges that the industry has had for decades.
One of the main challenges is to establish trust between the players and the platform operators, as the betting landscape is growing with the wider use of smartphones and the internet.
