Welcome to the DGaming news digest, covering the final 14 days of 2018!
As promised, we have been working on how we publish data. This edition of our digest includes data from the Ethereum and EOS blockchains for the period December 17th - December 30th.
Previously, we compiled data from Etherscan and Bloks.io, but our hands were tied with how we were able to present it.
However, our tech wizards have been working hard behind the scenes, and we're happy to announce we are compiling our own data directly from EOS and Ethereum blockchains.
Over the coming months we'll become increasingly more creative with the data we provide and how it's presented. We aim to create an incredibly broad snapshot of what is happening in the DGaming industry every 2 weeks.
