In an unexpected announcement today, Team Vitality, the leading esports 0rganization, has confirmed Tezos as their main technical partner. Moving forward, the partnership of Tezos x Team Vitality will revolutionize the esports fan experience.
Due to the pioneering, energy-efficient blockchain Tezos, Vitality can expand its global community in ways that are not possible currently.
Tezos x Team Vitality
The esports team is home to several of esports most celebrated athletes. Team Vitality will represent the Tezos brand as it travels the world, competing in the most prominent esports tournaments going. The partnership will give Tezos a huge advertisement boost as Team Vitality is massive in the gaming industry. The deal will last three years until the end of 2024.
Tezos x Team Vitality will also work towards educating fans on the benefits of blockchain and how it can advance the gaming experience. Unquestionably, gaming and esports fans are tech-savvy, and many will already know the basics of blockchain.
However, Team Vitality will focus on the importance of Tezos and why many view them as the most advanced, eco-friendly blockchains. Gaming is going to be a considerable part of the blockchain. As it develops, Tezos is committed to ensuring that the ecosystem thrives.
What is Tezos?
Tezos is a proof of stake blockchain. This decentralized platform is open-source and can execute peer-to-peer transactions. This produces a lower impact on the environment than some of the most popular blockchains. The leading blockchains operate using proof of work, which environmental groups have criticized.
The native cryptocurrency for the Tezos blockchain is Tez, represented by the symbol XTZ. The partnership with Team Vitality will bring more publicity to this growing platform. Additionally, it can act as a platform for deploying smart contracts.
Speaking about the partnership, Mason Edwards, Chief of Staff, Tezos Foundation, had this to say, “The decision from Team Vitality to choose the energy-efficient Tezos blockchain as a technical partner is another signal to the established and growing gaming vertical that low gas fees, forkless upgradability, and ease-of-use are the key factors driving the next wave of adoption for blockchain technologies.”
Team Vitality joins Tezos blockchain.
Established in 2013, the esports company is one of the leading gaming brands in the world. Operating out of Paris, in their state-of-the-art public esports complex, the team continues to expand rapidly and dominate the esports world. Thus, with the help of Tezos, they will be able to share much more with their fans and community.
“The opportunities Tezos can bring to strengthen the relationship between us and our fans is incredibly exciting. We’re immensely proud to have Tezos join us on this journey,” said Nicolas Maurer, CEO, Team Vitality.
Finally, it is not only Tezos and Team Vitality who realize the potential of blockchain and gaming partnerships. It is going to be a huge industry. Meanwhile, many are already suggesting that 2022 will be the year of blockchain gaming.
