Gambling, Gaming & Technology Use Community of Interest

The Gambling, Gaming & Technology Use Community of Interest brings together addiction and mental health service providers, researchers and subject matter experts in the fields of gambling, technology/Internet use and video gaming to collaborate and share knowledge on emerging trends and clinical best practices.


On Wednesday June 15 2022 GGTU hosted Dr. Devin Mills who presented during the webinar entitled “Demystifying the link between problem gambling, cryptocurrencies, and other financial assets”

With the increased accessibility created through financial apps more people are able to engage in cryptocurrency and financial markets. However, with this engagement comes the possibility of these assets being used to gamble problematically.

In this presentation, Dr. Mills presents the latest research on the increasing popularity of cryptocurrencies and other risky financial products. He presents the association between financial trading and problem gambling and outlines some preliminary practice recommendations. This presentation would be of interest to those who want to gain an understanding of how cryptocurrencies and financial assets more broadly can be used to gamble problematically.
