I am back with the eSports Nuggets for you, it’s been quite a while have not posted anything, was preparing for the 7th World eSports Championship, Korea, organized by International eSports Federation.
Over past couple of weeks lot of interesting stuff has happened in eSports World, will be covering all of it in my subsequent posts. And trust me with each passing day eSports is getting better and better !!
Let’s begin with Mark Cuban; an American businessman, investor, film producer, author, television personality and philanthropist. He is the owner of the NBA‘s Dallas Mavericks, Landmark Theatres, and Magnolia Pictures, and the chairman of the HDTV cable network AXS TV.
On November 22, 2105, during “Intel Extreme Masters” an eSports IP owned by Intel & ESL, spectators were up for a pleasant surprise – a Show match between “Team Mark Cuban vs Team Brian Krzanich” for League of Legends (MOBA). Both Mark and Brian (CEO of Intel) were very much part of these teams.
That’s the kind of commitment which is expected from a Maverick Investor, Mark was part of Series A investment of $ 7 Mn raised by Unikrn (eSports Betting platform) in June 2015.
“It is real sport and people are gonna figure that out real quick”– Mark Cuban
and we completely agree…….
