Counter-Strike Players To Participate In Crypto-Powered Tournament

  • Counter-Strike players will participate in an upcoming crypto-powered tournament, where fans will be able to place bets with crypto tokens.
  • The tournament is sponsored by Verasity, an attention based platform for video, gaming and entertainment rewards with a native VRA token.
  • Two of the world’s best players in Nathan Schmitt (NBK) and Kevin Susanto (Xccurate) — with a combined two million followers — are set to take part in the tournament. 
  • Verasity has signed a long-term deal with the players’ agents, and is also in the process of securing a gambling license in Curaçao.
  • Verasity CEO RJ Mark Hain believes VRA boasts major advantages over its competitors, citing its environment agnostic and the fact that 100% of the revenue goes to the content creator.
  • While the current focus is on e-sports, Verasity could expand to other games like chess and even globally popular sports such as soccer and basketball in the future.
