One of the leading esports companies, ESL Gaming has penned down a partnership deal with Australia’s Non-Fungible Token (NFT) business platform Immutable X. This partnership looks forward to enabling the fans and supporters to buy, sell and exchange NFT assets for the ESL Pro Tour.
The main part of this deal is Immutable X providing a scaling infrastructure to the esports fans so they can access carbon neutral and gas-free minting and trading of NFTs. While the fans don’t need to worry about any security during the trading as Immutable X offers a hyper-secure protocol with Layer 1 security of Ethereum.
Speaking on the occasion, Bernhard Mogk, SVP Global Business Development, ESL Gaming said “The Immutable team has gaming in their DNA and we share the same vision for the future of NFTs. In combination with a deep passion for the community, this is the only way to forge meaningful innovation in the space”. “We could not be more excited to launch on Immutable X the best possible community-driven and fan-centric collectible platform to buy, collect and own some of the most memorable moments in EPT history.”
Adding to it, David Hiltscher, VP of Fan Value Management & Analytics, ESL Gaming said, “We are excited about the opportunity to build our EPT NFT offering on top of the Immutable X platform. Immutable’s solution to carbon-neutral and gas-free trading of NFTs fits our needs perfectly, and we can’t wait to show fans what we’re building!”
Speaking of the partnership, Robbie Ferguson, co-founder of Immutable X said, “ESL’s vision for NFTs from ESL Pro Tour moments has the fans’ experience top of mind. At Immutable X, we make it easy for leading gaming partners like ESL to integrate NFTs into their experiences without sacrificing security or speed. We are thrilled to partner with a leader like ESL and look forward to a great partnership in the years to come.”
ESL Gaming has been working towards evolving the esports industry since its foundation in 2000. It offers its partners and video game publishers a medium to reach passionate and highly engaging audiences.
While Immutable X, launched in April this year, it aims to grow opportunities in providing instant trade confirmation, scalability, and zero gas fees with a carbon-neutral platform for securing digital assets on the Ethereum blockchain.
ESL with this partnership has set a mission to create a world where anybody can be somebody. While they are already on the path to give opportunities in the esports field offering legendary esports leagues and tournaments, now they plan to evolve their audiences’ experience by developing NFTs through Immutable X.
