Decentralized esports tournament series looks to bring traditional gamers to crypto

Polyient Games co-founder Craig Russo referred to the partnership as “a major step towards bringing mainstream adoption” to the crypto industry.

Non-fungible token-focused investment firm Polyient Games is launching a new online tournament to introduce mainstream gamers to the crypto space.

In an announcement today, Polyient Games said it would be partnering with esports tournament platform Community Gaming for a $100,000 series featuring games using non-fungible tokens, or NFTs. The esports games will reportedly “function as a method of introducing mainstream gamers to the world of cryptocurrency and blockchain assets” by allowing players to acquire digital collectibles and use NFTs as in-game items.

“The marriage between decentralized technology and gaming will be one of the most significant themes of the coming decade,” said Craig Russo, co-founder of Polyient Games. “Our work with Community Gaming on this brand new decentralized tournament series serves as a major step towards bringing mainstream adoption to this new industry.”

In addition to esports games, the tournament will reportedly feature blockchain games including trading and battling game Axie Infinity and Ethereum-based digital trading card game SkyWeaver. All games will reportedly utilize Polyient Games’ decentralized exchange for in-game currencies.

The first event of the $100,000 tournament will begin on March 29, with prizes paid out in U.S. dollars and Polyient Games’ native token, PGU.
