Currently, Crown Agency is suffering from the closure of game facilities in the province again in January. Their honesty was due to a new variant of the unprecedented situation. It will reopen soon, but ongoing operational changes have hurt the company’s activities and budgets.
President and CEO Jean-Francois Bergeron said in a virtual presentation at the Quebec City Chamber of Commerce (QCCCI) that he is considering introducing cryptocurrency payments in the future. But Mr Bergeron explained that the royal family is only considering it and that there are no special plans at the moment.
The president and CEO said the implementation of these payments will be decided with certainty over the next few years. He said cryptocurrency is leverage and banks and governments are increasingly interested in cryptocurrency. He also believes that adopting cryptocurrency in Quebec’s gaming industry will be part of the region’s new broader payment method.
Bergeron added that the payment experience is now part of the idea that organizations that need to communicate with customers put a lot of effort into. He also commented that it was difficult to figure out how the royal family would control the currency, as they do for the rest of the currency.
Currently, Crown Agency’s casino facilities are closed for a third time due to unprecedented conditions. Mr Bergeron said the company’s second reopening was much smoother than the first because he knew how to proceed and respond. According to him, the shutdown also hurt the morale of laid-off employees.
