Esports platform, Yamzu, has today announced that it will be launching a new White List for blockchain investors. Yamzu has reiterated that it plans to truly go global and ‘break the mould’ for esports. With the White List offering investors early entry to its ICO which goes online in just over a month.
The esports market is currently going through a meteoric rise in popularity and growth. Increasing from a value of $0.5 billion in 2016 to a projected value of over $5 billion in 2020.
Yamzu – Seeking To ‘Break the Mould’ Of Esports
It’s not surprising why this value is forecasted, as the player numbers have grown 15% annually. Founded in 2016, Yamzu has seen its revenue grow by 300% since then, with over 10,000 active users.
Currently, the platform is completely browser-based, allowing more flexibility for its users. While supporting competitions between teams in games like League of Legends (LoL) and CounterStrike: Global Offensive. The goal of the company’s ICO is to expand this reach to include games such as:
- DOTA 2
- Call of Duty
- Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds.
What Makes Yamzu Stand Out?
Unlike other platforms, the company presents itself more like providers such as Twitch and Steam. Using blockchain technology, Yamzu provides its players with tokens which they can use to play for money.
The company aims to expand its reach worldwide, and become a global esports ecosystem. CEO of Yamzu, Asiad Majeed, believing the company will provide its users with a rewarding, flexible system in the esports community.
“We’re very excited about the whitelist and the ICO in general. It’s another major step in our plans for a sustainable, interlinked esports ecosystem. Even better, investors get to come onboard as soon as our public ICO goes live, and they can benefit from where we’re going.
“It’s obvious to anyone in the esports industry that the market is a growing one. We’ve seen huge increases in player numbers and revenue since going live just two years ago, and the numbers are developing month on month.
“Our goal at Yamzu is to offer something that breaks the mould and like many other technology brands to come out of Sweden in recent years, we’re poised to do just that.
“We are building a platform with rewards and flexibility like no other, and our ICO is a big part of this. We know that esports are the future, and it’s a very exciting time to be part of it.”
