Among the latest plans from ESPN is a new gaming platform that will allow players to make deposits and withdrawals via bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
Gaming platform with crypto payments
E-Sports Programming Network (ESPN Global) has launched an online gaming platform that supports bitcoin payments. The new platform will allow players to compete to earn money. To enable easy and secure cryptocurrency payments, ESPN Global has partnered with CryptoPay.
Currently, the platform is in the pre-launch phase. Once released to players, they will be able to make payments with bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. In addition, premium owners will have access to more popular games. In addition, they will be able to play the latest titles much earlier than other users.
Established in 1979, ESPN has diversified its services since its launch. The company allows users to compete with each other in some popular online games. Recently, ESPN launched “Satoshi’s Treasure” – a game with $ 1 million in BTC to be won. The name of the game comes from the creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto.
In addition, ESPN Global plans to launch its own Smart Gaming Token (SGT) IEO after gathering the relevant esports community. In its development roadmap, ESPN Global, also launched a new console for game developers in January 2020. This way, independent game developers will be able to easily create their own productions.
Blockchain in the gaming industry
In late June, we learned that the best Counter-Strike players, along with two million fans, will be taking part in a cryptocurrency esports tournament. Fans will be able to bet on the results with tokens.
Last month, Ubisoft released a series of blockchain-based digital collectibles for the popular gaming and TV franchise, Rabbids. The money raised from the sale of these tokens will be used to support UNICEF.
