The company, known for its innovative approach to affiliate marketing in the iGaming sector, has experienced remarkable growth in all facets of its operations, solidifying its position as a leader in the industry.

To mark the occasion, Alpha Affiliates is proud to announce the winners of its inaugural Affiliate Race who will shortly be receiving their well-deserved rewards.


Significant Milestones and Market Expansion

In 2023, Alpha Affiliates achieved a 30% increase in affiliate partners, consolidating itself as a preferred choice among affiliates.

Amidst rapid growth, Alpha Affiliates launched four new cutting-edge casino brands – Spinch, Rakoo, OnLuck, and Casino Infinity. These additions to its portfolio not only showcased the company’s commitment to providing diverse gaming experiences, but also contributed to its status as a dynamic force in the iGaming industry.

Geographical market expansion was a key strategic move in 2023, with Alpha Affiliates making significant strides in new markets, including France, Italy, Belgium, Greece, Norway, Slovenia, Slovakia, and Hungary. This geographic diversification not only broadened its reach, but also ensured a more comprehensive and inclusive gaming experience for iGaming enthusiasts worldwide.


Partnerships, Collaborations and Awards

Alpha Affiliates celebrated its 11th anniversary in grand style by hosting a 200K EUR Affiliate Race for its partners, and hosting a milestone party in Cyprus, a testament to the company’s commitment to fostering a sense of community with its affiliate network. This is further exemplified by the new partnerships formed with niche media entities, including Affpapa, Affiverse Media, Global Gambling News, and SiGMA World. These collaborations bolstered the company’s reach and ensured its presence at the forefront of industry discussions and developments.

The company also proudly secured the Affpapa Award, and the team’s participation in six major conferences, including iGB London, SiGMA Dubai, iGB Amsterdam, SBC Barcelona, SiGMA Cyprus, and SiGMA Malta, further cemented its status as an industry leader and innovator. During SiGMA Malta, the company showed its social and collaborative nature in its popular booth, where it showcased a preview of its cutting-edge affiliate platform, provided exclusive merchandise, engaged in stimulating conversation on industry trends and raffled €7,500 with participants.


The Affiliate Race 

Part of its creativity has come from launching innovative events and competitions. From October 15th to December 25th, Alpha Affiliates hosted the Affiliate Race, where top partners competed for prizes and Hall of Fame spots.

With over €200,000 at stake, the top 30 partners, excelling in Net Gaming Revenue (NGR), will soon receive their well-deserved rewards. The top 5 will additionally be honored with exclusive branded rings, making this competition a remarkable success.

The race provided a unique opportunity to boost earnings, with similar opportunities ready for 2024 and beyond.

Affiliate managers will be personally reaching out to the winners very shortly.


Team Growth and Future Plans

The Alpha Affiliates team experienced substantial growth, with 30 new employees, including Irina Makarova as Chief Marketing Officer, and Irina Pisanko as Chief Product Officer. It also welcomed the promotion of Boris Pashnev to CEO in December. Alpha Affiliates will be continuing to expand its workforce in 2024, and is expected to grow by a further 20% in the new year.

2024 will be the year for expansion, both internally within teams, and regionally, strengthening its position in tier one and tier two markets, with eyes set on several new EU regions. The company will align its strategic moves with the company’s vision of becoming a global leader in the iGaming affiliate space.

As part of its brand expansion, Alpha Affiliates looks to solidify its media presence by attending key industry events such as the Amplify Summit by Affiverse Media, iGB, SBC and SiGMA. The affiliate marketing company will also launch its brand new podcast series in partnership with Affiverse in January, looking at the latest trends and tips for affiliate marketing within the iGaming sector.

The company is inspired to achieve further greatness in 2024, and hopes its efforts will be recognised by the industry with more prestigious awards next year.

Web3 Startups Raise Nearly $1.9B in Q1 2024 Despite Overall Downtrend in Crypto VC Interest




Venture capital funding for cryptocurrency and blockchain projects has seen a notable resurgence in the first quarter of 2024, marking its first quarterly rise since 2021. Crunchbase data released today indicates that Web3 startups secured nearly $1.9 billion in funding across 346 deals during this period. This represents a substantial 58% increase from the previous quarter, offering a glimmer of hope amidst the ongoing downward trend in overall crypto VC interest.

The recent surge in funding can be attributed to investors adopting a more long-term perspective on Web3, as opposed to the hype-driven “tourist investors” predominant in recent years. Chris Metinko, the author of the report, notes that investors are shifting their focus to the AI sector, indicating a change in investment strategy. There is a growing interest in supporting the foundational infrastructure of the decentralized internet, rather than solely concentrating on crypto wallets and lending platforms, which attracted significant investments during the peak period of 2021 to 2022.

While large funding rounds were relatively uncommon in Q1, several notable investments stood out. Exohood Labs, a company integrating AI, quantum computing, and blockchain, secured a remarkable $112 million seed round at a valuation of $1.4 billion. EigenLabs, an Ether token “restaking” platform, raised $100 million in a Series B round led by a16z crypto. Additionally, Freechat, a decentralized social network leveraging blockchain technology, secured $80 million in a Series A round. These investments, among others, contributed to the increase in valuations and the emergence of four new Web3 unicorns in Q1.

Despite the recent progress, the future trajectory of Web3 remains uncertain. Metinko suggests that the next few quarters will be pivotal in determining the industry’s direction. While investors anticipate a rebound in investment as the decentralized internet evolves, it may take another year for venture capital activity to stabilize after the exuberance of 2021. Factors such as the approval of U.S. spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds and the upcoming Bitcoin halving could also influence the market, given the rising prices of Bitcoin and Ether.

A noteworthy example of significant funding in the Web3 space is Monad Labs’ recent successful funding round, which secured $225 million led by Paradigm. Monad Labs is a layer-1 blockchain compatible with Ethereum, offering faster transaction processing. This funding round harkens back to the golden era of crypto funding in 2021-2022, when L1 solutions attracted substantial investments.

Earlier this year, Balance, a digital asset custodian based in Canada, announced that it had once again reached $2 billion in assets under custody (AUC) amidst the recent market recovery. Similarly, Korea Digital Asset (KODA), the largest institutional crypto custody service in South Korea, has experienced remarkable growth in crypto assets under its custody, expanding by nearly 248% in the second half of 2023.

Analysts at Bernstein Research project that crypto funds could reach an impressive $500 billion to $650 billion within the next five years, representing a significant leap from the current valuation of approximately $50 billion. This forecast underscores the growing optimism and potential for substantial growth within the crypto industry in the coming years.

ASIC cracks down on blockchain mining firms




Three blockchain mining companies – NGS Crypto, NGS Digital, and NGS Group – along with their directors, Brett Mendham, Ryan Brown, and Mark Ten Caten, are facing legal action from the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) for allegedly operating without a license, in violation of Australia’s Corporations Act. ASIC initiated legal proceedings against these entities on April 9, citing concerns about their non-compliance with financial regulations and their solicitation of Australian investors.

According to ASIC, the NGS companies promoted blockchain mining packages with fixed-rate returns to Australian investors, encouraging the transfer of funds from regulated superannuation funds to self-managed superannuation funds (SMSFs) for conversion into cryptocurrency. Approximately 450 Australians invested a total of around USD 41 million in these packages, raising concerns about potential financial losses.

The legal action filed by ASIC alleges that the companies violated section 911A of the Corporations Act, which prohibits companies from providing financial services without a valid Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL). ASIC is seeking interim and final court orders to prohibit the NGS companies from offering financial services in Australia without an AFSL.

ASIC Chair Joe Longo emphasized the importance of investors carefully considering the risks before investing in crypto-related products through their SMSFs. Longo stated that ASIC’s actions send a message to the crypto industry about the regulator’s commitment to ensuring compliance with regulations and protecting consumers.

In a separate development, the Federal Court appointed receivers for the digital currency assets associated with the NGS companies and their directors to safeguard these assets amid concerns about the risk of dissipation. Mendham was also issued a travel restriction order, preventing him from leaving Australia.

While a court date for the proceedings has not been set, ASIC’s investigation is ongoing, with the regulator continuing to gather evidence and build its case. It is worth noting that the investigated companies share a similar name with NGS Super, a legitimate Australian pensions provider, leading to potential confusion among investors. NGS Super clarified that it is not involved in selling cryptocurrency or related products and has taken legal action to protect its trademark and members’ interests.
