Shortly after hitting our soft cap, we announced plans to scale up quickly and push forward towards our hard cap. We also stated that we will aim to host our first esports competition in the next 6 weeks, months before we had originally planned in our road map. This is all down to the hard work of our Galacticans to support our vision and co-create a global gaming community.
The support we have received over the last 3 weeks has been phenomenal. It has truly humbled us and we intend to continue with our community at the centre of everything we do. Launching our first esports competition marks an important milestone for IG, particularly as we further demonstrate our intent for the global competitive gaming economy.
Today, we are proud to announce our first strategic partnership with a professional esports organisation. This organisation has also confirmed their interest in competing in our first esports competition. They will be the first esports organisation to utilise IGG in their existing infrastructure for some of the use cases already outlined.
Mazers is a professional esports organisation based in the United States. They boast over 50 players competing in the following esports titles:
Our first competition will be for EA Sports’ FIFA series. Mazer Gaming will expand their portfolio to field a team within this esport title.
Moreover, Mazer Gaming goes beyond fielding esports teams for competitions. They also have an extensive range of gaming apparel for their fan base. Furthermore, they have a media section that focusses on video production, integrated marketing and digital advertising for the organisation and prospective clients.
Mazer Gaming have an extensive network of influencers and streamers. Below is an overview of their social media analytics:
Twitch Followers – 457,563 combined streamers/influencers and professional players
YouTube Views – 2,533,948 combined team channel and creator channel views
Twitter Followers – 321,440 combined streamers/influencers and professional players
Instagram Followers – 35,814 combined streamers/influencers and professional players
This partnership is indicative of the attractiveness of IG’s offering. This strategic partnership will demonstrate the legitimacy and real-world applicability of our platform, as well as our integral IGG token. Mazer Gaming will begin immediately utilising IGG in their organisation for the intended use cases.
We will release further information over the coming weeks with regards to the particulars of this partnership. Their existing infrastructure is exactly what we are looking for. Our Intergalactic Ecosystem will provide them with the tools to access a global digital gaming infrastructure, whilst also facilitating enhanced monetisation of their fan base.
We look forward to working with Mazer Gaming going forward and are excited to reveal our future plans.
FYI – ADOPTION IS COMING. Today we have had the confirmation of two other professional esports organisations that are interested in participating in our first esports competition. Watch this space.
