Over the last week, we have been in London, at the ESI 2018, a leading esports business conference. This was a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase our brand; what we are about, and how we plan to change the world through competitive gaming.
ESI London was a three day business conference, involving various notable guest speakers providing their insight on the esports landscape. A talking point during one of the seminars was whether Franchised Leagues had a place in esports. The majority of the audiences contended nay, citing the detrimental effect it would have on the grassroots movement, as it will only be teams with large capital that benefit.
This event also allowed for the opportunity to meet professional footballer, and Leicester City Full Back, Christian Fuchs. He has his own esports team ‘No Fuchs Given’ and discussed the benefits of pro footballers joining the movement. Firstly it provides exposure to the whole esports scene, which will bring with it a huge influx of revenue. Secondly, it will enable pro footballers and general public figures, to build their own personal brands and monetise their reach. The life of a pro athlete is very short when we compare it to the age of retirement; esports therefore becomes a viable career option to diversify their portfolio.
With all other speakers from blockchain companies utilising Ethereum, IG was the only representative present from the Tron community, allowing us the opportunity to provide extensive exposure to the IG project and the Tron blockchain. Founder of the Tron Network, Justin Sun’s vision of a decentralised Internet, specifically entertainment, is synonymous with our own. The Tron Network is far superior to the Ethereum blockchain, handling over 2000 transactions per second. Furthermore, their reliable network structure has undoubtedly supported our distribution plan. IG’s presence at the ESI sure turned a few heads.
Our co-founder Naeem, spoke on the panel regarding the synergy of blockchain and esports; in particular, how it will intertwine with the future of gaming. As previously discussed, the amalgamation of the two offer for a bright future. In short, it will allow grassroots gamers at the heart of esports to participate and thrive through their own decentralised digital economies. Through our strategic partnerships, we will be able to shape the future of the esports industry, thus facilitating the natural evolution of interaction and the exchange of value. Our vision sees the fragmented world connected through competitive gaming.
We had an opportunity to speak to number of organisations at the ESI 2018. These conversations were positive for us, leading to the potential for exciting partnerships; all with the promising aim of securing IG’s foothold in the esports x blockchain landscape. We can confirm that we have spoken to disabled gaming charity SpecialEffect who provided us with a greater insight into what they do. Accessibility and inclusion is central to IG; we firmly support disabled gaming. At the ESI conference, we were extremely excited to test the new Xbox controllers designed specifically for disabled gamers. As IG develops, we intend to conduct regular research into ways in which we can bridge the gap and assimilate disabled gaming into the mainstream. We hope to work closely with SpecialEffect and other similar organisations to help them flourish on the esports scene.
Outside of the conference, our co-founders set up a number of meetings that will look to enable adoption across Europe, with high profile professionals eager to join our ranks. We anticipate detailing the outcome of these meetings when appropriate.
Our Galactic Magicians have incorporated a ‘New Wallet’ section this week; users now need to verify their wallets to be counted in main airdrops. Does not affect rain/airdrops on Seedit. The second 1B Airdrop at the end of the month will now only count verified wallets. Users can verify their wallets by visiting www.iggalaxy.com , logging in and going to the wallet section where the instructions are intuitive. Galacticans will just need to send TWO payments of varying amounts, amounts are generated per wallet to our address, and the system will automatically mark it as verified. With this update came the ability to delete and rename wallets, in addition to switching primary wallets.
5K bonuses will also be getting sent out BEFORE the 1B Airdrop, provided requirements are met.
We have prioritised design work this week as we work on our Alpha platform. We are progressing well, and will be releasing some teasers on our progress in the coming weeks; we cannot wait!
With the release of FIFA 19 and our Alpha Platform imminent, we look forward to soon hosting our very first tournament on the Intergalactic platform. A lot more exciting things to look forward to as FIFA 19 is released.
What we look forward to:
Release of FIFA 2019—28 September 2018
1 Billion IGG Airdrop—30th September 2018
End of Tronscan IGG ICO—3rd October 2018
1:1?—?Airdrop end of Q4 2018
