Kronoverse has recently partnered with ESL, the world’s largest esports company, with the goal of developing and scaling CryptoFights and the Kronoverse gaming platform. This move is right in line with Kronoverse’s goals of improving the esports industry in various ways such as attracting more indie game developers and solving gaming problems like cheating. More gamers around the world will be able to benefit from what blockchain gaming has to offer because of this partnership. Here’s a quick history of ESL, what will happen because of the Kronoverse/ESL partnership, and what you have to gain from the partnership:
A quick history of ESL
ESL has been around since 2000 with a focus on building the best esports states and competitions for gamers. By 2001, ESL celebrated its first 100,000 members and reached nearly 1 million members in 2005. ESL hit the 2 million-member mark in 2008 then got to 4 million members in 2012. Thanks to its thriving community, the esports industry has grown as well in total viewership and revenue.
There have been more opportunities for esports athletes to showcase their skills and get paid for it because of ESL. Tournaments such as ESL One Cologne consistently sell out to maximum capacity crowds like the LANXESS Arena which is Germany’s biggest indoor sports arena. The impact of ESL’s hard work and dedication to competitive gaming has been felt on social media as well. More than 74 million impressions on Facebook and Twitter were made because of the ESL Pro League in 2016. Since ESL has been around for two decades, it knows what it takes to evolve and scale as the esports industry grows and technology improves.
Benefits of the Kronoverse/ESL partnership
Both Kronoverse and ESL are invested in the growth and success of the esports industry. Although Kronoverse is newer to the esports industry, it brings a new world of competitive gaming by combining blockchain technology with online gaming.
Kronoverse is built on Bitcoin SV which makes all games built on the Kronoverse platform blockchain games. In case you didn’t already know, blockchain games are different from traditional video games for different reasons such as decentralization and complete transparency. All actions taken on a blockchain game are recorded permanently and can be reviewed by both gamers and game developers. This increases the integrity of a game thanks to the higher level of transparency. Through the ESL/Kronoverse partnership, more esports athletes around the world can expect to compete in honest gaming environments that allow them to truly play without worrying about cheaters.
