The World’s First eSports Tournament with a Cryptocurrency Prize Pool has Arrived

This weekend Play2Live (P2L), the first entirely blockchain-fueled streaming platform, is hosting the world’s first eSports tournament with a cryptocurrency prize pool.

The CS:GO tournament takes place on February 24-25 in Minsk and broadcast in seven languages. The tournament features eight international teams competing for the main prize of $100,000 in P2L’s token.

 “We are even more excited to host the world’s first ever eSports tournament with crypto prize: an event, that will become a milestone in further integration of the blockchain technology into gaming industry,” said Alexey Burdyko, CEO and Founder of Play2Live.

Cryptocurrency has continued to grow in popularity throughout the video gaming community in recent months. In-game item and skin traders are naturally familiar with the intricacies of trading cryptocurrencies, as both have similar traits. OPSkins recently launched it’s own cryptocurrency, WAX, to make it easier, cheaper, faster, and safer to trade in-game digital items. WAX is currently in it’s infancy and still in Alpha stage, with the final product expected in late 2018. The final product is a custom blockchain and protocol token, which will enable all of the unique features of the Worldwide Asset eXchange including buying and selling items through the use of smart contracts, sharing fee income among multiple parties, pegged asset contracts managing volatility, pledging to guilds, enabling exchange widgets, and more. It will also enable nearly anyone to operate their own virtual items trading marketplace similar to OPSkins.

Watch Comedy Central show the $61k Souvenir Dragon Lore that sold on

Last week, a Souvenir Dragon Lore sold on for $61,052.63 (item listing here). This week, Comedy Central’s Adult Swim News segment featured the item and, uh, how to explain the sale to your Grandpa. Watch it here:

Why was this item sold for around the price of a 2018 BMW M3?

The Dragon Lore is already one of highest priced items in the CS:GO skins market. This particular skin was in “factory new” condition, and also featured the autograph of Tyler “Skadoodle” Latham of Cloud9 who took home MVP of the ELEAGUE Boston Major 2018. Throw in the fact that this skin is only available through “Souvenir” crates that are dropped to fans spectating the majors. Rarity + prestige + collectibility = $61k digital gun which has gone down in skins trading history as the Most Expensive Dragon Lore Ever Sold.

As soon as the item sold on OPSkins Marketplace, news of the item began to spread like wildfire and was featured on Dot Esports, PC Gamer, Polygon and eventually Comedy Central’s Adult Swim News.
