Meitu’s Frank Fu Joins Fantasy Sports Platform MyDFS as Advisor

Having a solid team is key to the success of any company. In addition to having a solid core team, many in the world of blockchain can heavily benefit by surrounding themselves with advisors who are not only familiar with the inner workings of blockchain technology, but with business ventures in general.

In a move to position daily fantasy sports platform MyDFS as a leader in the world of blockchain-based gaming, the team has announced they will be adding Frank Fu as an advisor to the project. Frank Fu is best known for having been President of Kingsoft Office Software, where he led sales, marketing, global partnerships, product management, and operations. He brings with him an in-depth understanding of marketing and what it takes to bring a service to a global market.

“When building something great, you have to surround yourself with great people. Having Frank as an advisor brings valuable knowledge and experience to the project,” states MyDFS CEO Viktor Mangazeev.

With a strong interest in blockchain tech, Fu has founded several blockchain companies, furthering his expertise and understanding of the constantly-evolving digital landscape. Fu currently serves as Managing Director of Corporate Development for Chinese company Meitu, Inc. Meitu is a photo editing service that is mainly used in mainland China, but also has success in both Hong Kong and Taiwan. Meitu’s apps have been accessed on over 1 billion devices already.

In addition to being on board as an advisor, Fu has also invested $2 million into the project, further demonstrating his belief in the MyDFS team’s vision.

“The union of gaming and blockchain is inevitable,” says Fu. “Encrypted blockchain guarantees safe storage of all in-game digital assets, what makes the data transparent to the core. Blockchain technology is the solution we are all looking for, due to the decentralized network and [its ability] to record each transaction to combat fraud. That actually can trigger the game industry’s next evolution.”

MyDFS is slated to change how daily fantasy sports are played, by bringing a level of transparency and ease-of-use that just isn’t there on traditional platforms. Because the platform is entirely on the blockchain, all player actions are recorded on an open digital ledger, meaning issues of foul play and cheating are practically non-existent. It will also offer unique ways of participating on the platform, with the main one being investing in other players that actually play on the platform.

Instead of simply betting on teams and player loadouts, users will be able to use the MyDFS token to bet on the pro players that consistently have strong showings and payouts. It’s almost like profit-sharing in that you’ll get a percentage of the winnings that those players make during their sessions. And because everything is on the blockchain and verified through smart contracts, payouts and confirmations will happen almost instantaneously, as the smart contracts guarantee accuracy.

Blockchain technology has almost infinite possibilities, and fantasy sports is just another example of something that can be improved through the decentralized nature of the blockchain.

DOGE/USD Uptrend Shows Dogecoin Remains Bullish

As is usually the case when the weekend transitions into a new week, there is a bit of bearish market pressure to contend with. Even Dogecoin, a currency renowned for its stability first and foremost, is suffering from a minor loss in the Bitcoin department. Its USD value remains rather stable at $0.0022, for the time being. Dogecoin is a Good Doge When it comes to looking at the different cryptocurrencies on the market today, there is plenty of volatility to be discovered. That is the true nature of these volatile assets, but it seems the year 2018 has put a different spin on this aspect altogether. For Dogecoin, the year 2018 hasn’t been all too promising either, although the altcoin still excels in terms of price stability and maintaining its overall market cap through Q3 2018. Over the past 24 hours, however, it seems there is some interesting market pressure to be noted. The DOGE/USD ratio remains in the green following another 2.3% gain. As such, its price level of $0.002173 can be maintained, albeit a small correction might materialize soon. The DOGE/BTC ratio has suffered a 1% net loss, but that is not necessarily a bad thing either. This small loss can easily be overcome with a bit more trading volume. On social media, there are always multiple Dogecoin-related discussions to keep an eye on. It would appear user Kramavich has successfully resolved a lingering issue regarding his Dogecoin balance being stuck for quite some time. Although an 11-month waiting period is never acceptable, it is better to see these matters resolved in the end rather than not at all. Cryptonator will also resume its Dogecoin services in the coming hours, by the look of things. Wow i still cant believe it,but my #dogecoin has arrived in my wallet today,since January,,better late than never,just to stay positive,, but geee 11 months is a long wait — Kramavich (@JustinMcConachy) December 17, 2018 When it comes to exploring the Dogecoin price across multiple trading platforms, it usually becomes apparent there will be some gaps to explore. As such, there will be some interesting arbitrage opportunities to explore in this regard. Moving funds between Koineks, Gate, or Livecoin can easily yield a 1% profit. A very interesting opportunity to explore, especially with the DOGE/BTC ratio fluctuating a bit. #DOGEBuy at #Koineks and sell at #Gate.io. Ratio: 1.05%Buy at #Koineks and sell at #LiveCoin. Ratio: 1.17%#bitcoin #arbitrage #arbitraj #arbingtool https://t.co/xiFUPzcOcC — Arbing Tool (@ArbingTool) December 17, 2018 When the discussion turns to Dogecoin,a good meme will usually pop up out of nowhere. Dogecoin Memes has been a rather fantastic Twitter account in that regard, as there are plenty of images and GIFs to enjoy. This latest meme shows the Dogecoin NASCAR car, which made a few headlines several years ago. It is another example of how the Dogecoin community made good things happen in the past and may continue to do so moving forward. #Dogecoin #memes #crypto #cryptocurrency #doge #tothemoon #wow #moonsoon #dogecoinmoon #thatishot #realhot #youtuberewind #willsmith pic.twitter.com/zcYAVhoKOB — Dogecoin Memes (@DogecoinMemes) December 17, 2018 Although the Dogecoin trading volume doesn’t look all that impressive right now, there is still some positive momentum to go around. As such, there may be a further uptrend in the DOGE/USD ratio, albeit the DOGE/BTC ratio may slowly drift to the 60 Satoshi level once again. There is some interesting momentum regardless, depending on how people want to look at the current situation. Disclaimer: This is not trading or investment advice.
