The nature of gaming is designed to provide enjoyment and excitement for all; for many, it evokes nostalgic memories that we can look back upon fondly. Additionally, gaming is designed to inherently offer an immersive experience, which for many is an escape that fuels competition, creativity and friendship.
Today it is with great excitement that we announce our support of Mazer Gaming, who will host a 24-hour live stream on Saturday 15 December on Twitch. The aim of this charity livestream is to to raise funds and awareness for Thirsty Minds. Thirsty Minds are a Non-Profit Organisation that have set out to introduce esports and game development to at-risk youth. They have set the ultimate goal of establishing a formalised education through their programme.
Thirsty Minds have been proactive in laying the foundations to their vision. They have carried out their own console rally, gathering PS4’s, Xbox Ones and other accessories that will support their esports program. Moreover, they have worked for community grants that have allowed them to provide a space for work stations within communities that will be available for classes. Arguably their biggest achievement to date is successfully landing a consulting contract with a school district that wants to implement their programme into the curriculum.

How IG Will Support:
IG will promote this event through our social media to provide exposure for this cause. We will call upon all of our Galacticans to show their support in whatever way they can. IG will contribute 50,000 TRX from the Intergalactic Foundation and 500,000 IGG to support Thirsty Minds’ vision.
Furthermore, we aim to utilise the IGGy bot to further support the Live Stream. IGGy has been developed by one of our community members and has multiple functions, acting as an ever-present source of support. We have planned to utilise our IGGy bot to provide a wallet whereby members in our Telegram group can donate to, which will be sent to Thirsty Minds following the event. Mazer Gaming has also set up a button on their live stream that will allow viewers to donate through Coinbase.
IG intend to offer more than financial support. We will be utilising our platform within the TRON network to help incorporate the education of blockchain within the programme. Developing on this however, we feel this is a valuable opportunity to begin introducing blockchain and it’s application to competitive gaming and beyond.
We are extremely proud of Mazer Gaming for contributing their time and resources to help support such a fantastic project. We will be looking to carry out community driven projects such as this, in partnership with influencers, to further the adoption of blockchain within competitive gaming.
