Software as a Service (SaaS) has revolutionized the way businesses and individuals use software. It has made it possible for anyone with an internet connection to access and use powerful software applications without having to install them on their devices. SaaS developers are the people behind this technology, and they play a crucial role in the development and delivery of SaaS solutions.

So, what exactly is a SaaS developer? In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the role of a SaaS developer, their responsibilities, and the skills required to become one.

What is a SaaS Developer?

A SaaS developer is a software developer who specializes in creating software applications that are delivered as a service over the internet. These applications are designed to be used by multiple customers, who access them through a web browser or mobile app. SaaS developers work in teams to design, develop, test, and deploy these applications, ensuring that they are highly scalable, reliable, and secure.

Responsibilities of a SaaS Developer

The responsibilities of a SaaS developer can vary depending on the size and complexity of the project they are working on. However, some of the core responsibilities of a SaaS developer include:

  1. Designing and developing software applications that are delivered as a service over the internet.
  2. Collaborating with other developers, product managers, and designers to ensure that the application meets customer needs.
  3. Writing clean, efficient, and maintainable code.

Valery Bollier, co-founder and CEO of Oulala Games – answers for EEG Magazine

Following Oulala’s launch back in 2013, we engaged in a discussion with our customers for 2 years with the purpose of adapting our concept in accordance with what they wished for. Additionally, this time was utilised with the purpose of demonstrating and proving that Oulala was indeed a true game of real skill as opposed to a game of luck falsely advertising itself as a skill game. The fundamental factor contributing to our future success is actually delivering on what we promise our customers: “With Oulala, for the first time, you can prove that you know football better than your friends!”

October 2016 saw the launch of the monetised version of Oulala, marking the next logical step in the road for us: breaking into the UK market. This is significant for a number of reasons, namely that besides the strong passion its people hold for football and playing money on it, the English Premier league itself is indubitably the most popular football league in the world. More importantly, however, is the fact that the current fantasy sports leader in the European market is none other than the UK itself. While season-long fantasy football games have long been a cultural activity that people have been accustomed to so far, one can expect the transition into a more appealing daily format to go quite smoothly.

So far, Oulala has successfully attracted over 25,000 registered users (free and monetised). Our next goal to focus on is developing Oulala in BtoB. Recently, we launched a white label version of our game, including a turnkey solution version and an API version. Moreover, we have already begun building partnerships with iGaming operators in numerous countries such as Italy, Australia, France and Cameroon, among others, allowing them the possibility to offer our game to their own customers. The surprising response from the iGaming sector towards our offer has spurred us on into focusing all our energy into our BtoB offer.

EEGReport Magazine: How does the Oulala platform differ from the already competitive market? What are your platforms’ unique points? It amazes me that so many things have happened in the DFS industry, since our last interview.

Valery Bollier: Oulala is currently the most innovative daily fantasy sports platform in the game right now. We put in 6 months of work alongside a team of statisticians in order to create a mathematical matrix that would render the results of our game as close to the reality of a football match as possible.

Our scoring system comprises 70 different football statistics, as compared to the approximate total of 10 to 16 from our competitors. The criteria is weighted respectively based on the player’s position (goalkeeper, defender, midfielder, and striker)thus producing a total of 275 ways to lose or gain points. These points range from the regular goals and assists to the more complexly detailed shots on target and successful tackles, to name a few, thus rendering it as close to football reality as possible.

Being a European game, playing on Oulala means that rather than only having a limited selection of players in the Premier League to pick from, as is the case in most DFS games, there is also the option to pick players from any of the Italian, Spanish or French league teams. The game becomes much more interesting with a pool of over 2800 players from 80 different teams to choose from.

Furthermore, Oulala is the first Daily Fantasy Football game to be a real second screen game. The customary process involved customers creating their teams before the matches began and then returned post-match in order to see their results. In an effort to bring forth the closest experience to reality, we brought forward an innovative process that enables customers to make live substitutions during the matches.

During the process of building a team on Oulala, there is also the option to pick six players to remain on the bench. For instance, if Lionel Messi is currently playing however his performance after 28 minutes proves to be unsatisfactory, a quick look at the bench offers the customer the choice to sub in someone such as Olivier Giroud instead, who will be playing with Arsenal in 2 hours. Thus, in 2 hours’ time, the system begin to take Giroud’s stats into account from the 29th minute of his match. For this reason, Oulala’s customers tend to be rather active during the matches, constantly accessing their team on our site in order to keep up with the live results of their players and sub players if necessary.

EEGReport Magazine: Another headliner that made the news is that you guys have managed to score a partnership with Premier League football club, Leicester City. This is a big deal for a newcomer DFS website such as yours, how has it been taken?

Valery Bollier: Having already experience a similar partnership with AS Monaco in France last season, we have begun to understand how to effectively form a partnership that will be mutually beneficial for the parties involved.

Certainly, it is imperative that football clubs provide stimulating content for their online fans in order to make visit their site regularly. The partnership that we hold poses a fine example of how a club may engage with its fans successfully. In a strategic move to provide entertainment, fantasy sports games offer real-time, second screen experiences that further encourage fans to watch more sports. Through our offer of a white label version of our game directed at their customers, LCFC is swiftly reaching that very goal.

More importantly, however, is finding the most appropriate business model than will enable clubs to monetise their massive customer database. This is where Oulala can prove to be a highly innovative partner.

Our choice of Leicester for a partner was based on the corporate culture they are immersed in that is very similar to ours. Naturally, we incredibly pleased to be partnered with the current leader of the Premier League, however, we are more impressed by the excellent quality of their management team. Alongside them, we are confident that we are headed in the right direction.

EEGReport Magazine: How do you think the markets in Europe are reacting to DFS in terms of licensing? We see a lot of talks that some countries might categorize it as gambling and grant 1st tier licenses.

Valery Bollier: As anticipated, the market moved at a far quicker pace than the legislators, meaning that Europe’s national regulators have yet to adapt to the new reality coming into place. More often than not, DFS tends to be considered a ‘pool betting’ activity, therefore in order to safeguard our young industry, it is crucial that we push for a legal frame adapted to our specific function from the Gaming authorises.

In a Kafkaesque twist of events, if the goal is to operate a DFS game in the UK then offering your game in the USA will not be permitted. Considering how huge DFS is in the USA, the current situation seems rather ridiculous.

Evidently, our industry requires a tailor-made DFS license, one that should only be granted to companies who are successfully able to prove that theirs is a real skill game. It is imperative that legislators exert caution when selecting operators, basing their decision on the quality of their game and the scoring system, holding the accuracy of a DFS game as the factor of paramount importance.

A DFS license should only enable proven skill games to offer white label version of their game to third parties. Oulala is currently one of the few that offers one available to the market, however other companies will soon follow suit, hoping to launch their game through partnerships.

It is in the interests of both the operators and the players that there is proper legislation in place. This would help the system from following the same path that poker did, in that the system should not allow any unfair advantages to the professional players over casual players.

We have already spoken to European legislators about our sector’s needs. Unsurprisingly, Malta was the first country with a positive reaction towards our suggestions, following up with a specific game license being launched by the MGA later this year. This will be undeniably be a huge step forward in the development of fantasy sports in Europe, also placing Malta at the centre of action for DFS operators.

EEGReport Magazine: What is the current global size of the DFS market?

Valery Bollier: Fantasy sports are an estimated €23 billion industry in the United States, with around 57 million fantasy sports players in the US and Canada. It is anticipated that market leaders Draftkings and FanDuel will respectively pay out over a billion dollars in prizes to fantasy-obsessed players this year while also putting tens of millions of dollars into advertising that will keep building the market. There may only be a small group of traditional players that play daily fantasy sports, however Eilers Research shows that daily games will generate almost €2.3 billion in entry fees this year and continue to grow 41% annually, thus reaching an astounding €12.8 billion in 2020.

The DFS landscape in Europe is only beginning to rise, with the UK as the leading market for fantasy sports in the EU. With the English Premier league as the most popular season-long fantasy sports operator, it gains an immense amount of coverage by newspapers that follow it including Sky Sports, The Sun, the Daily Mail and the Daily Telegraph.

The total number of players stands at approximately 5 to 8 million season-long fantasy users, a number this is significantly smaller than the US. With only 3 to 5% of these currently playing DFS, the situation presents a potentially substantial market to tap into. As mentioned earlier, other countries have already begun to open their doors to DFS, with the influx of new operators being a direct result of that.

An even bigger market that present itself to DFS is none other than sports betting. Morgan Stanley’s research last year revealed that legal sports betting is valued at over $100 billion annually. Thus, current iGaming operators shouldn’t think of DFS as a substitute to sports betting but rather as a good opportunity.

For instance, our BtoB platform provides a plug and play white label solution for iGaming operators that are hoping to enter our evolving sector by proposing DFS games as complementary products to their own existing operations. I anticipate an abundance of sports betting punters and poker players that will have direct access to DFS through their usual iGaming sites before the year ends. I am certain that the market will truly benefit from this BtoB strategy and will go on to boost the European DFS evolution.

EEGReport Magazine: What is the most popular DFS product for players?

Valery Bollier: American football remains the reigning, most popular sport in the USA with the largest fan base as well as an extensive history. This is the reason behind the increased marketing focused on American football rather than fantasy leagues in any other sport. 2015 saw 73% of DFS players playing Fantasy NFL at least once throughout the year.

Other sports they play also include NBA, NCAA, NHL and MLB. The rising number of soccer players may have leapt from 12% in 2013 to 20% in 2015, however local MLS teams still remain the main focus in fantasy sports.

Nevertheless, when taking DFS on a global level outside the US, football (soccer) undeniably reigns as the number one future sport. Europe remains the center of the world when it comes to football, with the best players from all the over the world playing in European teams. This offers DFS in Europe a major advantage over our American competitors. While they have offer multiple sports in their domestic market, Europe has a unique sport with a popularity that spreads worldwide.

Following the consolidation of the market, other sports such a tennis, basketball and hockey will follow suit. Passionate DFS players in Northern America much prefer their American football, basketball, baseball, car racing and hockey, however football remains the top choice in Central and South America as well as Asia. Another DFS game gradually gaining attention is Daily Fantasy Cricket, particularly in India.

EEGReport Magazine: Demographics wise, is the DFS player the same as traditional online sports bettor?

Valery Bollier: DFS players can be considered the younger generation of sports bettors. They brought up in a generation that emphasised playing video games. Now that they have reached adulthood, there is a strong desire to play in monetised games. However, they also hope to play games that are capable of offering them a similar kind of experience that they had on their own game consoles, thus hoping that rather than eradicating the experience over the financial rewards, they would be able to retain both. This is why DFS may well be the perfect product for them.

EEGReport Magazine: Is DFS open to cyber-crime in the same way as match fixing in real games, given that you can search on YouTube and no doubt find a video to ‘hack’

Valery Bollier: DFS may be a monetised game, however it is also a social game. People will be playing with their friends, people from their community, colleagues even, and so it should remain. At Oulala, we believe that our industry needs to cap the amount that may be deposit in a league. By imposing such a limit to maintain a reasonable amount, such as the €200 limit on Oulala, we are able to avoid most issues linked to cybercrime, including money laundering and match fixing.

EEGReport Magazine: What are the future plans and are you guys getting ready for the EURO 2016?

Valery Bollier: Technology is what brought about our sector’s revolution and it has only just begun for us. Currently, we are able to obtain live stats from the ball owner and the player facing him. We hope to be able to go on and obtain the live stats from all 22 players on the field.

Technology will also enable us to acquire vast amounts of personal data about the players. For instance, the partnership between the German national team and software giant SA during the last world cup allowed them to get live data on their players. Satisfied with the results, they are aiming to go even further for the next world cup, such as obtaining the players’ brain serotonin levels that indicate stress during the matched. It may seem like science fiction however this is the direction that sports is taking and soon DFS will allow everyone to be part of this revolution.

As for Oulala, our intention is to further develop our network of iGaming partners in the near future. A number of operators have shown interest in our BtoB solution and we have gone on to sign various important deals that will come into effect next season. Our aim is to continue along this path in order to evolve and become the leading Daily Fantasy network for football.

Tim Heath – INTERVIEW about BitCoin

EEGReport Magazine: Experts believe that in the coming years Bitcoin will develop at about the same speed as not so long ago Internet did. Do you also adhere to this theory?

Tim Heath: If we look at the speed of disruptive technologies, such as the Internet (http protocol) and Email (smtp), it takes time for such advances to propagate throughout society, specifically the time between the early adopter group and the masses. However the movement from early adopter to regular user is most certainly more rapid than other such innovate / disruptive technologies we have seen in the past.

At the moment, Bitcoin is simply to complicated for the average user, but conceptually it’s an easy concept to understand (once explained). I think this is because users know how to use bittorrent, or how skype works from their everyday use cases, but most often don’t understand (nor want to) the underlying technology. Skype (and VOIP) is an amazing technology, but I really do wonder how many average consumers understand the technology and the rails & protocols it runs on. Skype have made a very simple user interface to point and click, to call or video to someone on the other side of the world, for free. Therefore, perhaps we should not view Bitcoin technology as the “ultimate” goal for adoption, but rather simply the “rails” on which a trusted transaction is made and the end user simply uses a nice user interface to click “send money to a friend from my contact list”.

Perhaps to this end, the end goal (or killer Bitcoin app), is that someone can buy $20 of Bitcoins from a friend and in the background, that amount is hedged immediately, to ensure there is no volatility in the Bitcoin price which may effect their whole experience. This money could then be sent to a merchant, gaming site or used as remittance to another country. The transaction would still take place over the blockchain, but in the end user’s eyes, they see the non-technical transaction (which one would say looks and feels like any paypal transaction), just that it happens over a decentralized network with no fees to “send the money” safely and securely.

EEGReport Magazine: Full anonymity of Bitcoin transactions – is it advantage of disadvantage?

Tim Heath: Bitcoin is Pseudonymous not anonymous.

Our primary KYC resolves around a player’s digital footprint, rather than traditional (and as some would agree, forgeable) utility bills. That said, players are happy to be KYCed in traditional ways due to o gaming license requirements. This is because we have found that player’s prefer that their Bitcoin gambling transactions are “not obvious” to family / friends. Therefore when depositing to a Bitcoin casino, there are no deposits from a joint bank accounts or credit card statement. Most importantly however, is that there is no gambling transactions on their bank statements which may harm future loan or mortgage applications (through traditional banks).

EEGReport Magazine: Absence of clear scheme for Bitcoin regulation and for its taxation disaffect – is it a key issue for investors?

Tim Heath: Regulation is needed is the onramp / offramp of fiat currency to Bitcoins and vice versa. This is where governments should have sensible regulations in place; that Bitcoin exchanges should know their customers and understand the sources or destinations of incoming or outgoing funds. In regard to taxation – this is a situation for the jurisdiction where the company is based, to know and pay their respective corporate taxes. Taxation is based on the annual reports filed in the relevant jurisdictions and have nothing to do with a Bitcoin transaction.

These issues don’t seem to be slowing down Venture capital investment into Bitcoin or blockchain related companies. In Q1 2015 there was a record breaking amount of venture capital invested in Bitcoin startups, over $229 million (a total of $676 million so far).

EEGReport Magazine: What are the benefits received by casino if shifting to Bitcoin payment system?

Tim Heath: Bitcoin is perfect money for the Internet:

You can send or receive $0.01 or $10 million+ instantly anywhere in the world
It is irreversible
There is no chargebacks or fraud
There are no payment processing costs
There are no 3rdparties “holding the money”
All transactions are peer 2 peer and auditable on the blockchain
Escrow services exist in the blockchain code.

Therefore when a casino utilizes Bitcoin as a payment method / gaming unit, all deposits and withdrawals are instant. We are seeing a huge increase in localized options for conversion between fiat and Bitcoin and vice versa, which is rapidly growing Bitcoin’s accessibility. It’s also very clear and logical, then the faster withdrawals are processed by a casino, the greater confidence a player has (in the casino) and the faster they will re-deposit.

Of course any business would love to have 0% merchant processing fees and to completely remove fraud and Chargebacks from their profit / loss statements…

Effective Ways to Prevent Heartburn during Pregnancy

Heartburn is one of the oldest and also one of the most common conditions that affects millions of people every single day. Despite its name, heartburn is in no way related to the heart.

Ways to Prevent Nighttime Heartburn

If you experienced heartburn before, then you know that it is unpleasant, painful and in most cases, distressing. You have to know that millions of people from different parts of the world suffer from heartburn and it is also a very old condition that humans suffer from.

If you suffer from heartburn on a regular basis, you may need to treat it in order to prevent heartburn attacks or at least lessen its frequency.

Although mild heartburn is more of a nuisance than a real condition, chronic or severe heartburn can be something much more serious. Chronic heartburn will not only prevent you from living a normal life, but it can also be very dangerous to your overall health.

You need to remember that when acid reflux or heartburn occurs, your esophagus will get damaged. Occasional or mild cases of heartburn will let the lining in your esophagus to recover and no long term damage will be done. But, if you experience heartburn on a regular basis, you may need to take this more seriously as repeated heartburn attacks will prevent your esophagus lining from recovering and cause serious damage to it.

In extreme cases, it may lead to the scarring of the esophagus. You may also develop Barrett’s esophagus, where you will be at risk of getting esophageal cancer. This is mainly the reason why you may want to prevent heartburn especially during nighttime when you are going to bed.

People are more prone to experience heartburn during the night when they lie down. This is because when we lie down, it’s easier for the acid to reach our esophagus because gravity will no longer be of any help when we are lying down.

And, when we lie down, there will be a much more prolonged contact between the esophagus and the acid, which can easily lead to the deterioration of the esophagus lining, which will cause a more serious complication as mentioned earlier.

So, here are some of the ways on how you can prevent heartburn from happening during nighttime.

The first is to avoid eating large meals during dinner. You have to remember that big meals mean that the stomach has to work harder to digest the food you eat. This will also mean that the stomach will take a lot longer to digest what you eat and it has to produce more acid to digest the food. This is what you don’t want to happen when you are already lying down your bed getting ready to go to sleep.

You should also avoid going to bed on a full stomach. You need to allow your stomach at least 3 hours before you turn in.

As much as possible, you have to avoid lying down after eating dinner.

You should also avoid drinking alcohol late at night as this increases alcohol production in your stomach and it also relaxes your LES or lower esophageal sphincter. The LES is responsible for keeping stomach acid inside your stomach and if it relaxes, it will open up and allow acid to come in contact with your esophagus.

Lastly, you may want to have a supply of antacids ready in case you experience heartburn during the night. Drinking plenty of water can also help neutralize the acid in your stomach.

These are the ways on how you can prevent nighttime heartburn. Remember these tips and you can be sure that you will reduce the occurrence of nighttime heartburn and avoid letting heartburn take control of your life.

Alexandre Tomic – Interview

EEG: We see the Virtual gambling industry as a new gambling industry in full development. How fast is it growing and how are people reacting to it?

A.T.: There is a great deal of interest around the virtual gambling industry, as there is around virtual reality in general. People have been waiting for virtual reality to become a truly viable option for the last thirty years or so, and now that it’s finally starting to get there, it’s understandable that people are eager to get their hands on it and give it a try. However the high costs are undeniably still an issue, as players need expensive equipment to run VR software, so most of the people who have played in our VR casino so far have been playing in 3D and not getting the full VR experience, meaning that it’s hard to tell at the moment.

We have however taken the VR casino on the road to industry shows and conferences. We took two sets of VR software and neither was ever empty; in fact people were queueing up to try it out. We have always had an extremely positive reaction from those who have tried it – players, the media, and industry professionals alike.

EEG: What are the current games that are available until now, and what other games can we expect in the near future?

A.T.: VR is going to be huge. There is so much choice already for VR games, and it hasn’t even reached mainstream acceptance yet. On Steam alone there are already more than 500 games, allowing users to fight robots, create art and machines, play sports, take a look around shops, explore abandoned buildings, dark forests and undersea worlds, protect castles from invading tribes, go out into space, and a great deal more.

While we can’t speak for the other VR games currently in development, we are hoping to one day improve the experience inside our VR casino by creating fully immersive VR slots. At the moment the setting is VR, but the slots themselves are still 2D, and players still play sitting in front of a screen. What we would like to do is create an environment in which players are surrounded by the features of the slot, with the reels in front of them but the actual background, animated characters, and other features of the slot all around them.

EEG: How do you think Virtual Gaming will affect people that never walked into a real casino, but still have a curiosity towards it?

A.T.: I think the fact that a truly immersive casino experience is now available to play from the comfort of a user’s own home will certainly pique people’s interest and make them more curious about trying it – not to mention the fact that they would do so using VR, a technology which a lot of people have been looking forward to trying since the 80s. Obviously it can’t replace the experience of going into a casino in real life, but perhaps people who try it in VR and feel that thrill of seeing others winning and winning themselves might then be more likely to give it a go in a real casino.

EEG: Suppose I’m willing to try a virtual casino. What are the things I need in order to get in there and gamble?

A.T.: You would need a high-spec gaming PC and a pair of virtual reality goggles. SlotsMillion’s virtual casino is currently compatible with the Oculus Rift goggles and we are working on becoming compatible with the HTC Vive in the near future as well. Theoretically, players could also use Google Cardboard or Samsung Gear, but at the moment we have no plans to make our application compatible with these devices as, considering that they are low-end, it would dramatically affect the quality of the experience and we are dedicated to offering our players the best.

EEG: Do you think that one day maybe, virtual reality will completely overrun reality, and maybe move absolutely all of the players into the virtual world?

A.T.: I think it’s a possibility. Virtual reality is that immersive – it’s incredibly easy to lose track of time and will become even more so as the technology improves and any side effects such as motion sickness become less of an issue. Business especially may find a place in the VR world – within the casino we could certainly work from inside, having meetings, supporting players and schmoozing with partners, affiliates and clients. We might one day spend longer inside the VR world than the players, and ultimately what started out as a game will eventually start to look like a new, revolutionary way of doing business. Gaming certainly isn’t the only industry with business uses for VR, though; education, medicine, the military, retail and many more are already starting to use VR to improve the services they offer, both to their staff and to their customers and users.

The more technology encroaches onto our daily working lives and the higher the amount of people who work in technology-based industries, the more likely it is that we will become accustomed to spending our working hours inside the VR world. VR could really revolutionise the business side of things as well as the player experience. The possibilities are endless, and it would be a shame not to explore and exploit them in every possible way.

One day it will be almost impossible, or at least very hard, to distinguish reality from the virtual world. The only way we will be able to tell that we are in a computer generated simulation would be because we will hold on to the memories of our real lives – and we could even eventually remove this capability. But what if the game became so immersive that we couldn’t remember who we really are? In that instance it may even be difficult to tell which of our realities is the virtual world, and which is in fact the real one.

EEG: How could we satisfy the people that turn their backs at the virtual reality, saying that you can’t have a real drink on the house, or that virtual body language isn’t the same as the real one?

A.T.: Of course there are aspects of VR gambling that can’t quite live up to the real thing – it would be unreasonable to expect a game to do so. At the moment, VR isn’t meant to replace the experience of gambling in a real casino, but instead merely make it more accessible to those who perhaps aren’t able to visit real casinos often, or provide a more social and immersive experience for those who had previously been limited to playing online. As the technology improves, it will start to feel increasingly realistic and that immersive feel will be all the more present. In the future, however, we would like to use AR to add an extra layer inside the casino, and this is where users may start seeing the benefits of VR over real life, as the AR aspect would facilitate a much more personalised experience – including personalised offers and bonuses, for example – which may make players feel more valued and welcomed inside their casino.

EEG: Let’s talk about the legal aspect, do you think that strong regulations or laws could appear to restrict Virtual Gaming? And that it might keep this industry from developing?

A.T.: We were expecting when we sat down with our regulator, the MGA, to have to make a lot of changes and adjustments in accordance with their laws. However, they were very helpful, and it was great to see that they were open to the development of new technologies within the gaming industry. We have not had a lot of problems with regulations so far, and I think that’s a very good indication that the gaming industry is ready for a revolution like the one virtual reality is expected to cause.

Of course there is the fact that due to app store regulations we are unable to use the VR casino as a bridge between the worlds of social and real money gaming, as we had initially envisioned doing. The likes of Apple, Android and Oculus tend to restrict the displaying of real money gaming in their stores, which means that we are unable to use the VR casino as an acquisition tool for players and rather keep it as a retention tool for the players we already have.

EEG: What is the first thing you would improve in the Virtual Gaming industry at this point?

A.T.: Since virtual reality in the gaming world is still such a young industry, it’s quite difficult to answer at this point. Clearly there are elements of the technology that we still need to work on – side effects such as motion sickness for example – to make the experience as immersive as it has the potential to be, but that is sure to improve as the technology develops, so at the moment it’s more a case of wait and see.

EEG: Do you think hacking could interfere with this virtual gambling world? If so, how could we prevent that?

A.T.: I think it’s extremely likely that hackers could interfere with the virtual world, and the results could be terrifying. Think of the situation in the movie Surrogates with Bruce Willis, where a virus was created that was capable of destroying users’ virtual and real bodies both. The damage would not be quite that bad, of course, but the consequences could be much more severe than they currently are when hacking occurs, because the level of immersion inside the virtual world would be much higher. In this video, we can observe the confusion that occurs when a hacker tries to break into the user’s account – her reality starts to collapse and she has to start again from the beginning.

This is not something to take lightly, so we obviously need to do our best to prevent this from happening, as we do today. However no matter how many measures we take, we always have to be aware that hackers’ skills grow alongside the development of technology. It’s already crucial today to protect ourselves, but given that the stakes will be even bigger in the virtual world, we have to try even harder to outsmart the hackers. It’s the same good guy versus bad guy game of today, just on a higher level.
