Unikrn Launching Esports Streamer Betting and AI Powered 24/7 Virtual Betting

Next week, Unikrn is updating with three experiences foundationally rooted in esports, furthering accessibility in the always-now culture of esports and gaming. With this launch, Unikrn is guaranteeing our members have access to singular experiences every second of every day.

Sports have a hard cap on content hours due to travel, fatigue, and players on court. Games like Fortnite have no such limits: on average, there are over 10,000 individual channels streaming unique Fortnite content at any given time. 10,000 live games with different players, play styles and personalities, and the only limit to more is the size of the audience.

As esports has grown, it has simultaneously benefitted from and been victim to its own content deluges. Because gamers play all hours of the day, streaming is a 24/7/365 entertainment fountain producing of 1000 millennia of viewer hours last year.

This creates an unprecedented challenge for bookmakers: how do you give fans what they want by creating the most engaging, exciting stream possible? Obviously, you set real-time odds at let fans win along with their streamers.

Setting real-time odds for even 5 live players outside of a formal competition is a difficult manual task. There was never a challenge like this presented to the sporting world. Unikrn set out to solve it.

Finishing our new launch, Unikrn Virtual is a curated game source built from exciting rounds of past esports events. With those rounds, we’ve created a system which permits CS:GO fans to bet on past esports games with a fresh round every minute, eliminating delays, scheduled down time and time zone woes.

All of these experiences are available in a week to members in our regulator-approved regions. UMode is even available for fans in most US states.

Unikrn is becoming esports first and only always-on betting destination, and the only place to back yourself. Use crypto, cash or convert gaming skins into regulated betting chips.

We’re starting to generate some good coverage at Coindesk, Geekwire, VentureBeat, and there’s more coming!
