Experienced esports veterans have launched Prize Payments, a new Service that reduces costs and streamlines payments in $300+ million prize esports industry.

Prize Payments brings a streamlined, efficient and economical solution to esports prize payment process and reduces time and costs for publishers and tournament organisers. Prize Payments is an ideal end-to-end solution for organising the payment process to navigate issues including multiple currencies, complex regulatory requirements, increasing costs and delayed payments to players.

Prize Payments reduces the time and money needed to complete the payment process and can handle 115 currencies across 180 countries whilst ensuring each payment is compliant with taxation and GDPR requirements in each country.

“Making prize payments across multiple territories is hugely complex and time-consuming. With the increasing success of competitive esports, publishers and tournaments organizers (TO’s) are seeing their challenges and costs rise. Prize Payments streamlines the whole process, reduces cost, and helps to speed the process up for winning players. We want to help publishers and organisers to be more efficient by removing their hands-on time expediting the payments, we believe this is a genuine win-win for both publishers and players,” Han Park, CEO of Prize Payments said.

The team behind Prize Payments includes Han Park, a 20 year veteran in gaming and esports, latterly serving as ESL’s US President, Spike Laurie, 7 year esports veteran, who built ESL’s UK and Brazilian business divisions, and Everett Coleman, 11 year esports veteran, who ran league operations at ESL US, as well as owning esports team Str8 Rippin.

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Bethereum will launch their 2nd Free-To-Play (F2P) eSports Cup on December 5th, this time with limited edition collectible football cards by Sorare as prizes.

Bethereum held few F2P competitions in the past, with thousands of active players. To celebrate their recent partnership with Sorare, they will hold an eSports Cup as a special event within the Bethereum Gaming Contest for 10 days, starting December 5th. During this special event players will, for the first time, compete not only for Bether tokens, but will have a chance to win Sorare limited edition ERC-721 football cards.

Sorare is a fantasy football game where you collect and build your dream team of players to compete for weekly rewards. These exclusive collectibles will be up for grabs for those who rank at the top of the Bethereum eSports Cup leaderboard. Join the F2P competition on gaming.bethereum.com

Giacomo Tognoni, CEO at Bethereum: “We see huge potential in eSports betting, and great affinity among eSports bettors and our focus on gamification, fun, and social.

“Our peer-to-peer model is also perfectly suitable for eSports, as it guarantees operational profitability on each and every bet (unlike standard betting models, as bookmakers find it hard to set reliable eSports odds).

“We’re excited to launch the eSports Cup in partnership with Sorare, a provider of Blockchain digital collectible sports cards – definitely a great use case for Blockchain.”

Nicolas Julia, CEO at Sorare: “We are very proud to kickstart this collaboration with Bethereum. We share the same mission of transparent and fair gaming. Today’s announcement marks a new step in our vision to create a global and open gaming ecosystem.”
