Bolstered BetterBetting board to support newly appointed CTO

BetterBetting (BETR) has prepared for the next phase of its development by appointing a new chief technical officer (CTO) and bolstering its supervisory board.

Experienced IT software architect Steve Gray has been appointed as CTO, while David Vanrenen has been named as Chair of the Foundation. Simon Collins and Velvo Vaht have also joined this “energised” Supervisory Board.

Gray joins the firm’s sportsbook architect Ian Sherrington and the rest of the development team at a critical time, with the soft launch of the BETR betting technology now well underway having launched successfully for the World Cup

“I’ve been involved with building the current BETR app for Android and the more I have become involved, the more excited I am by the potential for the BETR,” said Gray.

Vanrenen, a veteran investment manager and stockbroker, has been chosen to chair the newly realigned supervisory board, which includes Gaming Realms founder Simon Collins.

Collins, who also founded  Cashcade Ltd, an online bingo focused business which he sold for £96m in 2009, commented: “I’ve known Adriaan for many years and respect his track record in the industry.  When he came to me with the BETR proposition – peer-to-peer betting on the decentralised Blockchain – I immediately invested. 

“I am delighted I have been invited to join the Foundation board and look forward to working with the team to chart new territory with the BETR token.”

Velvo Vaht is a tax advisor, as well as an entrepreneur and partner at Finance Plus OŰ. He accepted the appointment by saying: “Estonia is becoming a ‘go-to’ destination for new and exciting crypto ventures and BETR, established in Estonia, is becoming a leading proponent of the use of Blockchain technologies to facilitate decentralised, escrow contracts.”

“I believe we can expect great things from the technology that BETR are developing, with the uses for the BETR utility token potentially extending way beyond the current betting application.” 

BetterBetting CEO Adriaan Brink concluded: “I am excited and energised by the team I have around me. We look forward to enhancing the BETR products and adding further utility with the BETR token in the peer-to-peer betting space and potentially across other applications where peer-to-peer escrow functionality is required.”
