The company added that it has also identified candidates for Chief Technology Officer and has started looking for potential developers and third-party resources to build up a related blockchain system and platform.Explaining its interest in blockchain, Success Dragon said, “The group intends to expand its business by applying blockchain technologies to improve its business operations. For example, blockchain technologies could be used to track gaming machines leased by consolidating delivery records, maintenance and servicing records, usage records, agreements, invoices and payments into a single transparent, easily accessible and secure ledger.“This will reduce the need to engage multiple systems and resources and potentially make these machines available to clients who are further away and who may not have the necessary infrastructure to accurately report the delivery, maintenance and usage records required to use these machines.Success Dragon revealed earlier this month that its cash reserves are down to just HK$1.2 million.
