At the turn of 2018, Unikrn had just finished building the foundations of our community platform. We celebrated New Year’s Eve 2019 with our first work alongside Bittrex. Our customers are all earning tokens for playing games that they know and love, and we’re giving them multiple ways to redeem them on the platform.

In December, we launched UMode, a skill-based betting experience currently for MOBAs and Battle Royales. Within a month we generated users from almost every market we opened up, all without a dime of advertising.

Our product will generate some good traction for us in 2019 because of the astonishing progress Unikrn made. Our features are better. Our technology is industry-leading. We continue to build strong partners. Our staff is truly top-of-the-industry. Our mission is the same: make the best esports and gaming experience possible, and expand the boundaries of what gaming, esports, blockchain and wagering can be.

Unikrn is in unexplored space, and we are defining it in our wake. Soon, esports and gaming fans will see their world in our vision, because we are building a platform solely with them in mind.

We achieved so much in 2018, an exhaustive list would be difficult to achieve (and too long to read), but here’s some of our proudest moments!

  • Became the first esports betting company to be cleared to roll out a multi-regional esportsbook betting product for fiat and crypto by the Isle of Man, this is just the start of our license
  • Launched unprecedented, patent-pending skill betting product readily accessible in markets around the world, including in the United States
  • Optimized for user-friendliness with a wallet redesign taking the complication out of using crypto or cash on our site, including co-developing an interface with Bittrex that makes buying UKG easy directly accessible from our website
  • Acquired a significant stake in Maingear Computers, the best Gaming PC maker on earth.

Unikrn will be half a decade old this year, which is an esports eternity. That’s 10 League of Legends seasons, over 20 Dota 2 majors/TIs and 13 CS:GO majors!

By the time we officially turn five, esports viewership is projected to be more than double it was when we began.

I’m starting this year grateful to have the entire Unikrn team excited to heighten the experiences of esports and gaming like no one else has been able to do. In 2019 the full-bodied Unikrn experience will rapidly shape the culture of esports and gaming.

Thanks for joining us!
