eSports: An Exponentially Expanding Market

Find the original post here: post

Professional gaming and eSports is a deeply competitive and fiercely dedicated world, one that is receiving a lot of media attention at the moment. It is a market that has been growing at an exponential rate for the past two decades.

eSports grew organically out of amateur video game culture, originally a solitary experience, and stereotypically one that occurred in lieu of college, employment, or socializing, alone in a darkened room. Over the years it has evolved into a literal spectator sport, with all the financial fringe benefits associated with such things.

Multiplayer video games between professional players include genres like real-time strategy [RTS], first-person shooter [FPS], fighting games, and multiplayer online battle arena [MOBA]. Call of Duty, Hearthstone, Rainbow Six Siege, and StarCraft II are just a few of the most lucrative games in terms of both player costs, sponsorship, and live viewing audience.

Tournaments like the League of Legends World Championship, the Evolution Championship, the Intel Extreme Masters Competition, have evolved from small, amateur events into live and PPV broadcasts on streaming platforms like Panda.tv,  YouTube, and Twitch.tv, with significant audience participation from a diverse demographic.

The global eSports viewing network is projected to reach 427 million people by the year 2019, ballooning to a $905.6 million dollar industry. The largest markets are currently in Asia and North America, with the biggest areas of participation in South Korea, China, Canada, and the United States.

The need: a platform

Professional football, soccer, and poker, all have governing bodies and legitimate platforms. With eSport’s subculture roots and categorically younger, technologically savvy viewer base, the industry is ripe for a value-based, scalable platform and financial management solution.

The goal of industry newcomer eSports Ecosystem [ESE] is to become exactly that – a leader in providing digital currency standards throughout the eSports community. They want to do this by developing and disseminating an industry standard cryptocurrency that will facilitate ease of both payment and service offering development.

ESports Ecosystem is launching with a robust digital payout structure that solves many of the problems currently found in eSports payouts and rewards. Part of their vision is to empower players of varying skill levels to reap financial rewards and other perks through continued participation in their existing passion; one that unfortunately struggles to provide a good growth ladder for incoming and more amateur player skills and experience they need to grow in the industry.

ESE CEO Lap Chi Duong is the CEO of one of the largest eSports companies in Canada, Canada Cup Gaming. With his strong knowledge of eSports, not just in Canada, but globally, Lap Chi has established relationships with top gamers and gaming executives, a clear view of the industry’s current state, and a holistic vision for the future. His goal is to help ESE gain worldwide awareness, adoption, and acceptance within the eSports ecosystem.

The system Lap Chi has conceived with ESE includes both solutions to existing needs and new, innovative solutions to emerging possibilities. At the time of ICO, ESE already offers:
