Today is a seismic shift in esports and gaming crypto.

We’ve quickly moved past basic infrastructure needs for UnikoinGold, in large part because we already had an established platform, use case, user base and road map before we ever announced UKG.

Today marks the first Unikrn Wallet partnership: a MEGA collaboration with GUNNAR Optiks. This is distinct from our many other partnerships (such as our tournament hosting for MGM Resorts) because it is deeper.

GUNNAR Optiks will be the first company in the world to integrate Unikrn Wallet, part of our groundbreaking blockchain platform, and this is just a start! We will continue to see through unique UnikoinGold and Unikrn Wallet integrations across the esports and gaming industry.

This isn’t an advertisement, but GUNNAR improves your sight and reduces strain. That improves your game. As a gamer, I stand by their products, and I’m overjoyed to be helping bring them to our users. They’ve sold over five million pairs and are OG esports supporters, going back a decade as the first non-developer, non peripheral brand supporting the scene.

They have a history as being visionaries, so naturally they are the first partners to jump into the next chapter of esports and gaming with UnikoinGold.

You’ll be able to acquire GUNNAR glasses with UnikoinGold, and you’ll be able to earn UKG whenever you make that purchase. Unikrn Wallet API will feel as smooth as other online payment methods, similar to how some stores integrate a PayPal API.

We will also be giving bonus UKG to GUNNAR customers when they sign up to earn UKG on our Connekt platform.

For the many of you already use Connekt — which is the easiest way to get UKG and the only reliable way to earn just for playing the games you love — GUNNAR will also be providing their eyewear in our jackpots.

It’s pretty simple, really: win games, earn UKG, win GUNNAR products, then win games more.

As we look ahead, we’re excited to bring on similar partners who speak to Unikrn’s audience to UKG users, creating additional real-world uses for UKG, making it unlike most utility tokens and the decentralized token for esports and gaming brands.

This is the first Unikrn Wallet partnership we’ve completed, and GUNNAR Optiks are ahead of the game. As our worldwide platform continues to attract gaming and esports fans, it will naturally become an invaluable marketplace for brands interested in this prime demographic. That means more opportunities to buy, but also more ways to win and earn for Unikrn users around the world.

Expect more from GUNNAR and plenty of other brands in Unikrn’s illustrious future.
