Verasity, a protocol and product layer blockchain platform for esports and digital content, has announced a partnership with Axie Infinity for the upcoming FTX GalAxie Cup 2021. VeraEsports, Verasity’s competitive esports and video streaming platform, will be the online tournament’s official and exclusive broadcast platform partner.
Verasity’s VeraPlayer will be used to stream the online tournament on galaxiecup.com and veraesports.com. The FTX GalAxie Cup is the first to use and incorporate Verasity’s unique blockchain technology on the official competition website.
The FTX GalAxie Cup
The FTX GalAxie Cup will begin with an Influencer Tournament on November 27, 2021, followed by a Pro Tournament the next day. The Influencer Tournament is only accessible to chosen Guilds and their nominated representatives. However, the Pro Tournament was open to the general public. Participants were required to register as a team of three, with their match-making-rating (MMR) recorded and averaged out as the team’s MMR. Registration is now closed and teams have been formed, ready to play.
“This pre-season of Axie Esports with 5,000 AXS in prize money has illuminated an incredible foundation for our competitive scene. Tournament organizers worldwide have been hosting amazing community events that continue to bring out the best in our community. As our community further pushes the envelope, we will be furthering our investments in building out infrastructure to support Axie Esports.” Andrew Campbell, Program Lead for Esports & Content Creators at Axie Infinity
