Blockchain solutions provider Quanta has named gaming industry veteran Harmen Brenninkmeijer as its new Chief Executive Officer.
“Harmen is the ideal person to lead Quanta,” the company said in a statement.
“He has significant experience in gaming as an operator and as a supplier and has a unique understanding of the challenges of all parts of the gaming business. He has worked in many countries and his network will help Quanta to expand its reach and establish new customers and partnerships in high growth markets.”
Quanta said the appointment of Brenninkmeijer followed a strategic review, with the company set to enter a “period of evolution as a leader in the design and utilization of blockchain to create gaming solutions that enhance potential whilst lessening barriers to entry.”
Commenting on his appointment, Brenninkmeijer said, “You can see from my track record that I have always had a great interest in emerging technologies in the gaming space. My feeling is that Quanta is the leading proponent in the development, operation and support of regulated gaming solutions that utilize blockchain.
“Our vision is to be the leader in this new space and to develop solutions that are low cost and so suit both highly competitive as well as emerging markets; are tech and currency agnostic to provide as broad coverage as possible; are decentralized where feasible to deliver transparency to the user and the regulator; and that are flexible enough to enable the discovery of new business models. I am hugely positive and excited about Quanta’s future.”
Quanta launched the first licensed blockchain lottery in 2017, which aimed to fully utilize blockchain together with its NMI-certified random number generator, Randao, which is entirely built and operated on blockchain. Quanta’s utility token, QNTU, trades on six renowned cryptocurrency exchanges including HitBTC and Bit-Z.
