It’s no secret that the eSports market is one fire right now. In fact, eSports is growing faster than either the movie or music industry (source) and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. In 2017 the eSports did close to $700M in revenue and reached an audience of 385M (source).
Okay, enough of me spouting out eSports market numbers, let’s get to the good stuff.
eSports.com has been sold for a seven figure sum by Monte Cahn of Right of the Dot. While the exact dollar value of the sale has been kept private I have been told it’s in the seven figure range and that it’s okay for me to share that, so I’m sharing it!
Of course, it’s a brave new world out there so it’s hard for anything new and cool to launch without somehow being attached to blockchain, so don’t worry, this is too. There’s a Whitepaper link on the eSports site that explains a bit more about what the site is about and how they’re planning to leverage blockchain technology.
“eSports.com brings news, scores, and statistics to the world, supporting the formation, growth, and activity of eSports organisations around the globe.
Using blockchain technology, eSports.com provides a unified, secure and transparent digital environment for all things eSports. Crucial steps towards achieving these goals are partnering with the largest eSports institutions on a global scale and involving the gaming community worldwide.” (Source – eSports.com)
I am looking forward to watching eSports.com continue to develop and grow over the years. Huge congrats to Monte and the Right of the Dot team for selling what is without a doubt one of the most game-changer domain sales of all time, and yes, there was some pun intended there.
