Dragon Boxer George Crotty Grabs Silver In The English Boxing Championships

In one of the most competitive divisions ever seen in the championships, the final saw Royal Marine George Crotty and Aaron Bowden going hard at it for the entire three-round bout. It was a contest of number one seed George against number three seed Aaron underlining just how tight the margins for success – or defeat are at the top level.
Aaron, who won a Commonwealth Youth Games Gold medal in 2017, won the fight by way of a split decision after having to moving up through the gears as he thought George had ‘nicked’ the first round and he went on to say: ‘I had to push him hard because he is outstanding on his feet.’

It was a close contest in the top level of boxing and to reach the finals in such a hot division is an accomplishment in its own right.  
George, a member of the GB Podium Squad and Reining two-time British Champion claimed the English title back in 2017, and the boxers have previously met at last year’s quarterfinals with George going through before being eliminated himself.   
George went into his 113th fight flying quickly out of the blocks to take the fight immediately to Aaron landing some solid punches enjoying some terrific success with his left hand.  George used the ring well, bobbing and weaving to avoid Aarons swarming attacks.
Dragon Ambassador George was cheered on by thousands of supporters from the boxing world and the Royal Marines watching worldwide.  Messages of support have been flooding his social media channels after he revealed that he went into the fight after picking up a sickness bug which left him exhausted after a couple of minutes in the first round.

Ever the gentleman George recognised Aarons skill and congratulated him on taking his chance to gain the win.
Former Royal Marine watched the fight and commented that: ‘George displayed the true Commando values of courage; determination; unselfishness and cheerfulness in the face of adversity in the fight.  Knowing George, he will learn from this setback will be back in the ring in no time in preparing for his next battle.’
If you missed the event, you can still see epic encounter as part of over 7 hours of fights with George’s bout beginning at 6 hours and 5 minutes in.

Dragon Pave The Way: Blockchain In Motorsports

Already at the forefront of implementing groundbreaking blockchain technology throughout the entertainment industry and arguably the first company to support the use of blockchain technology in the billion dollar motorsports industry, Dragon continues to pioneer and lead the way in this space.  
Dragon dominated the motorsports industry last year in many ways achieving the following:

The Dragon G-Drive team won the European Le Mans title as well as becoming the European Champions with a massive 34 clear points.
Dragon were able to support and clear the way for Team Brit injured veteran’s Aston Martin team to get all the way to Le Mans.
The HiTech GP Dragon Formula 3 team boasts the racing superstars of tomorrow.   
Jean-Eric Vergne taking numerous pole positions and top podium places leading to being nominated for International Racing Driver of the year.

Jean-Eric’s development as a driver has reached stratospheric heights, click here to see him in racing action and celebrating on the podium as a winning Dragon racer.

Dragon co-founder Paul Moynan reflects on the events of last season: ‘I have been blown away by the positive mindset and shared vision to succeed by all teams and indeed the individual racers who have overcome any setbacks along the way.’
On their multi-year partnership, Oliver Oakes, Team Principal at Hitech GP, one of the most respected teams outside Formula One, states that the “…relationship with Dragon represents our most significant partnership to date…We share their love of technology and innovation, and will work hard to ensure the partnership achieves our shared objectives.”

Moreover, after expressing his delight in the partnership with Dragon, Keith Smout, Chief Commercial Officer of Techeetah, the Chinese Formula E motor racing team went on to state that the company are “…constantly striving to bring new and exciting partners on board, and with Dragon now joining us we feel that we have accomplished this.” It is undoubtedly a move that will see both companies applying their forward-thinking technologies in a way that will completely transform their respective industries.
Dragon Coin, the world’s number one entertainment coin has set its vision to encompass the entire industry after last year’s extremely successful season confirmed that Dragon are moving in the right direction.  Other companies have started to take notice and follow Dragons lead which is fantastic news for the blockchain and motorsports industries.
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and Dragon have indeed been taken aback by the multiple companies that contribute to what is now a healthy competition in the motorsports space.

From Race Coin’s claims to design and implement a digital ecosystem that will revolutionise the racing world, to FuturoCoin who hope to use their Formula One partnership with Aston Martin Red Bull to develop the industry. But, Dragon’s influence in corporations’ change of gear and shift into the fast lane doesn’t stop there!
Companies such as the Indigo Racing Organisation, the first motorsport ICO, who are behind the world’s first entry-level electric race car, are offering tokens that can be exchanged into Indigo Racing Shares. In addition to this, the NASCAR Xfinity Series Race Car has entered an agreement that will see a full sponsorship deal that has been managed entirely through cryptocurrency alongside CONO’s blockchain trading desk.
Dragon recognises the scalability of such partnerships in the world’s fastest growing sport, not to mention the incredible exposure and brand awareness opportunities that inevitably come with joint efforts of this kind. Of course, none of this would have even been possible without the dedication of each and every racing team manager and the founders of amazing events like Formula 3 the Le Mans series.  Watch this space for more exciting motorsport partnerships.

In the meantime, why not get connected with users across the Dragon ecosystem by downloading the Dragon Social Wallet App now?

BIG Africa Supershow – The Gateway To Africa’s Gaming Market

The 2019 BiG Africa Supershow this year was held on the 25th and 26th March at the luxurious Emperors Palace in Johannesburg, South Africa.
To say that Africa is an untapped market for the gaming sector would genuinely be an old statement. With Africa’s overall gambling market projected to top a cool $37 Billion, there was a real need for all stakeholders to gather to set a clear course for the future.  The programme for the two days had been carefully crafted to give all African attendees the skills necessary to remain competitively strong and utilise new technologies to keep players entertained for in 2019.

Over two packed days leaders, operators and gaming professionals from Africa’s gaming sector gathered to debate and discuss the opportunities and challenges that the gaming industry faces.
Bookmakers, casino operators, gaming regulators, government associations, software solution providers, affiliate marketers, fintech companies and leading stakeholders attended and looked into;

Africa’s regulation with the continent’s most respected regulators report on gaming activities in their regions.
Advice from Africa’s gaming icons.
How to grow a network of gaming professionals.
The opportunity to participate in a masterclass.

Each year more and more competitors enter the market looking to stake their claim to a share of the $37 Billion market so there is a real need to employ the latest advancements in technology to stay up to date with cutting edge technologies.  The discussion centred around the benefits that blockchain technology can bring as the African gaming industry enters an age of unprecedented growth. With Dragon Coin, the world’s number one entertainment coin already being used in VIP gaming and e-gaming, the potential for Dragon to influence the African market is a mouth-watering prospect.

Unrealized growth opportunities abound in African markets with the world’s six fastest-growing economies situated on the continent.  According to this World Bank report the African economy is projected to rise by 3.5 in by the end of 2019.
