Cryptocurrency And eSports Coming Together
Though, importantly, Community Gaming has stated that the central purpose of the Crypto Maker series is educating new online bookies and fans on the growing blockchain industry. Bryan Mier, regional manager for the company in Latin America, put the situation into perspective. He first said that cryptocurrency markets are growing around the world, indicating that there is a clear public acceptance of alternative currency.
He went on to say that the biggest hurdle currently being faced by alternative currencies is a lack of education. Thus, he continued, eSports events like the Crypto Maker series are essential, offering locals in Latin America a chance to get educated, and thereby be ready for the new era of digital competence.
Hence, it seems as if both companies are banking on Latin Americans not only learning about cryptocurrencies, but also accepting them as a way forward in the region. In the case of eSports, it seems as if hopes are that the DAI currency will become associated with the activity, helping to boost the system to popularity with video game fans.
According to Meir, DAI is an excellent entry into cryptocurrencies, given that there are already a number of digital wallets that support it. He added that DAI is also easily exchangeable for traditional currencies, helping users avoid the volatility often seen in digital markets.
Play To Earn
Besides punting alternative currencies, the Crypto Maker series will also be pushing the so-called ‘play to earn’ motto. According to marketing, play to earn is a fundamental pillar that helps to strengthen video game skills. Though in this case, the motto simply seems to mean that those that play in the tournament stand to earn some cryptocurrency of their very own.
It isn’t clear how many new online bookies and Latin Americans are interested in DAI, but those that are can take a shot either betting on or playing over the course of December. The good news is that the eSports tournaments are free to enter, and all events will also be broadcast to the official Community Gaming channel.
