For this week’s episode, we had the pleasure of catching up with Tomi from Zed Bets who has a wild story about his involvement with Zed that culminated with the first Digital Derby in Las Vegas. His stream with partner Sean on Twitch was the first one in the Zed Run space to offer parimutuel odds and gives a real glimpse into the future potential of the game. I met him at the first live Zed event I attended here in Las Vegas for the Kentucky Derby and loved the backstory and what these guys have already been able to accomplish in this space. Hopefully, the red tape and all the legal stuff get worked out and we’re all able to download his Zed Bets app one day so we can place irresponsibly large wager on our horses. It’s people like Tomi with their creative spirit and ingenuity that truly make Zed Run an exciting place to be.
