eFuse raises $1.4 million seed roundReading Time: 2 minutes

 

eFuse secures major partnerships and brand ambassadors in preparation for launch

eFuse, a web and mobile application that serves as the professional hub for esports and video games, announced a $1.4 million seed round in preparation for the platform’s launch on December 10, 2019. As one of the fastest growing forms of entertainment across the globe, esports draw international competitors to tournaments with prize pools of up to $30 million and hundreds of millions of spectators.

“eFuse is the answer for every gap in the esports industry,” eFuse CEO Matt Benson said. “Since I founded eFuse in November 2018, our team has made strides in securing exclusive partnerships and creating the best platform for our community, so we’re thrilled to provide life-changing opportunities to gamers around the world starting in December.”

eFuse has secured funding from Ohio Innovation Fund (OIF), a venture capital firm with a track record of building high-growth startups in the Midwest. Benson honed his passion for entrepreneurship as an entrepreneur-in-residence with OIF in 2018.

“The esports industry is experiencing hyper growth — with the market size already at $1.2 billion, it’s expected that over $150 billion will be spent on video games and esports in 2019,” OIF Managing Director and eFuse Board Member Bill Baumel said. “The industry’s colossal reach is illustrated by the 2018 League of Legends World Championship Final, which had over 100 million unique viewers. That’s more than 2018’s Super Bowl.”

Professional athletes such as NFL player Braxton Miller and social media influencers such as chocoTaco, who has more than 1 million subscribers on YouTube, have given eFuse their seals of approval. Both will be serving as brand ambassadors to eFuse as the company prepares for launch.

eFuse has also built a seasoned team of employees and advisors to lead the company. Chief Technology Officer Patrick Shuff worked in engineering at both Facebook and Netflix. Anthony Muraco, an advisor to eFuse, was the director of gaming operations at the Cleveland Cavaliers and currently serves as the director of business operations for two prominent esports teams, SeattleCOD and Vancouver Titans.

To build upon this foundation, the team works closely with Moby Dick Unlimited in a shared office space. Moby Dick is the marketing firm behind several ultra-popular influencers who have three billion cumulative views, more than one hundred million subscribers across their social channels, and connections to the top esports professionals and organizations across the country.

FunFair-Changelly partnership allows for Bitcoin paymentsReading Time: 2 minutes

 

Integration will host five cryptocurrency swaps at launch

FunFair, the leading Isle of Man-licensed blockchain gaming platform, has gone live with cryptocurrency exchange Changelly to deliver numerous new cryptocurrency payment options.

As part of its mission to bring blockchain gaming to the masses, FunFair has integrated Changelly’s exchange API into its recently launched FunFair Wallet to allow players to swap various cryptocurrencies for its gambling token, FUN.

Registered players will now be able to bring the likes of Bitcoin, Tron and Litecoin to one of its partner casinos, CasinoFair and CryptoCasino, and trade for FUN without leaving the platform or needing third-party exchange accounts.

This will further improve the customer journey, significantly reducing friction between sign-up and gameplay, while opening up FunFair-powered casinos to gamblers who may not hold FUN but want to experience the first-class gaming experience that the platform delivers.

With five cryptocurrency funding options at launch and more to come after, as well as strong liquidity and instant transactions, Changelly’s innovative exchange API has been chosen to deliver the seamless experience that FunFair strives for.

Fred Kessler, CPO at FunFair Technologies Europe Ltd: “Integrating Changelly’s user-friendly exchange will open up our platform to a vast new audience of crypto-holders and allow for a far superior onboarding journey.

“To date, players must own FUN to play, but this new partnership of choice will allow for holders of the likes of Bitcoin to experience the best in blockchain gaming without the added hurdle of heading off-site to use a crypto exchange.”

Eric Benz, CEO at Changelly: “Funfair is a project I have been following for the past couple years and the team behind it is one of the best from both the gaming and crypto industries.

“I look forward to the integration of the Changelly API as this will benefit both customers and the partner companies who will utilise the FunFair Wallet.”

Following the launch of FunFair’s ‘any browser, any device’ wallet and second-gen platform, the added integration of Changelly’s exchange will confirm the supplier’s position as the most user-friendly blockchain casino platform around.
