Gimbl Monthly Update: GMU #7

2018 was a challenging year for the crypto sphere. It has evolved into a much more mature ecosystem with more talented minds devoted to critical issues for blockchain mass adoption.

It is always important to reflect back to build a stronger future.

Gimbl appoints Managing Director

Gimbl strengthens their team by recruiting Johan Ström as Managing Director in November 2018, he has a solid background in the gaming industry and the tech and product development space.

Johan has experience in companies that have seen exponential growth, such as Hero Gaming and Gaming Innovation Group, with sportsbook brands such as betser.com and guts.com. Responsibilities ranging from marketing to product development he is equipped to take on the challenge.

I am excited to join this project as both cryptocurrencies and the ever-growing eSport market is becoming increasingly relevant. I believe that what is in the making will become something very big and am excited to come along for the ride.

Johan

Johan will work closely with the existing team and attract new talent where it’s needed to ensure the long term goal of growth.

Core Team Update

For the past year, we always had open vacancies and are looking for great people constantly. All year long, the team grew to a much more structured team with various key positions. Here is the core team of Gimbl as of today:

Johan — Director (& Product owner)

Julien.C — Cofounder & CTO

Dan — Cofounder & CMO

Julien.L — Lead Dev

Aymeric — Backend Dev

Naim — Frontend Dev

New offices for the entire Team

For a year, we’ve been in coworking spaces. We grew and took more space until we felt the need to find our home. In Q3 2018, we had the opportunity to relocate our offices both in Malta and in Paris. The Maltese office is now at the epicenter of Malta in St Julian’s and the French office is located at the heart of Paris near Pigalle quarter.

Gimli to Gimbl

As you’ve noticed, Gimli became Gimbl.gg. As we got closer to the product launch, we felt the need to have a brand identity more in-line with the Gaming & eSports industry. Through multiple working sessions with marketing specialists and eSports influencers, we designed carefully the new name, Gimbl to reach a much more gaming and gamer audience. Gimbl is thought to be used as a word in many ways such as:
Let’s Gimbl (Let’s play)
I Gimbl you (I challenge you)
To Gimbl (to Bet/Gamble)

We thank you for the overwhelming support since we initiated the change.

Gaming License

The blockchain island continues on implementing regulation for blockchain and crypto businessesThe MGA’s CEO, Heathcliff Farrugia lately said:

The MGA’s strategic mission is to be at the forefront of gaming regulation whilst embracing innovation

We have carefully studied the new sandbox (click here), that lead us to create a number of task for the team. We had to review and adapt some of our license documentation according to the sandbox. Most importantly, our lead developer worked according to the guidelines to have the application’s flows compliant with what’s required. We are working closely with the MGA to make sure we will receive the license as soon as possible.

 

All an all we had an incredible year. In the next weeks and months, we will start to unveil more news related to the status of the product. Thank you all for your support and stay with us! 2019 will be our year!
