Daniel Keller


Daniel has been a system administrator for mid-sized companies in various industries since 2003. His interest in the blockchain world started after reading about Bitcoin in 2010. After this, he started Bitcoin mining. In 2015 Daniel guided a grey market casino to be fully regulated.

One year later, intrigued by the idea of creating a dedicated digital asset payment solution for the gaming industry, he began working for CasinoCoin as a Technical Consultant. At the end of 2020, Daniel took over the reins managing CasinoCoin, joining the Eminence Holdings team in the process.

With a keen interest in blockchain, XRPL, crypto, and all things technical, Daniel is responsible for delivering technical solutions, innovating products and services and working with partners and customers to ensure Eminence stays at the forefront of blockchain solutions.
