Over the last week Unikrn launched the most advanced wagering products for esports and video games ever. The press has been very good, and we’re getting lots of inbound interest from major betting operators around the world.

We launched Streamer Betting, where customers can bet on their favorite Twitch (or YouTube Gaming) Streamers, live, using any type of currency from crypto to fiat.

We also launched a betting game that allows for 247/365 virtual betting on historic esport match-ups. We even added to our skill betting platform Umode where people can now bet on themselves in Halo 5, Dota2, CSGO, Fortnite, League of Legends, and many other games on the way.

As I’ve often mentioned Unikrn is somewhat undiscovered in the crypto world, and we know time will change this. The crypto industry needs to mature past traders and exchanges, and exchanges will eventually become more like platforms of innovation rather than places to trade coins. Right now the companies making the most money in crypto are exchanges, but that will have to change for the longevity of this space, and only the best platforms will thrive.

The #1 reason Unikrn is listed on exchanges is so that new potential customers can discover our platform, and using tools from the exchange we should make it more accessible.

In other words we need to make crypto easier for the masses to access, so that platforms like Unikrn can benefit from the network effects of blockchain technology. Eventually customers who care about esports and video games will use crypto to earn, redeem, and bet with at scale.

In the meantime we give our customers choices, you can bet with USD, Euro’s, or even crypto (UKG aka UnikoinGold). It’s your choice, you can bet with all three if you want! We also allow our customers to earn UKG in various ways on the platform.

Here’s some of the press links, there were hundreds of links, I just picked from a few of my favorites.
