Electronic sports stars from the first person shooter Counter-Strike will participate in the digital currency tournament where fans can bet using digital currencies.
The tournament is sponsored by Verasity, a platform that attracts attention to video, games and entertainment with its unique VRA token.
The tournament will bring together Nathan Schmidt (NBK) and top Asian player Kevin Susanto (Xccurate), who in a press release has two million fans worldwide. Verasity has signed a long-term deal with proxy players. The company is also in the process of obtaining a gambling license for Curacao.
The goal of VRA is to take a moment of primary interest
The concept of the VRA token is very similar to the BAT for the brave browser, but CEO RJ Mark Hein told Cointelegraph that VRA has a number of important benefits over his more famous competitor – he's environmentally friendly and 100% of the revenue goes to the content creator.
Hein said: “The publisher must agree to use the best available techniques to make money on these rewards. What we do is completely different. We have nothing to do with the browser. If you work on a major publication like Bloomberg, Bloomberg has a video player run by Brightcove. [.. .] And Bloomberg wants a reward, be it Crypto or something else. “They take our SDK, they need about half an hour to install it, then they control revenue generation for all of this, and everything that happens inside this video player and ad group.”
According to Hayne, Verasity is trying to exploit the electronic gaming boom caused by COVID-19. However, in the future, they may expand to other games, such as chess and even popular sports in the world such as soccer and basketball.
