FTX US, a cryptocurrency exchange, has officially entered a partnership with Nerd Street Gamers for a variety of projects, one of which will see FTX become a presenting sponsor of Nerd Street Gamers’ national schedule of community events, as well as a partner for the upcoming Nerd Street Championships in Summer 2022.
In addition, FTX will power Nerd Street’s crypto payments.
“FTX US has a strong focus on making sure our industry – crypto – is a safe, accessible place for all types of people” Brett Harrison, President of FTX said in an official release. “That’s why as a gamer and esports fan, I’m proud to support Nerd Street’s mission likewise to bring esports to everyone.
“Their platform is unlocking a massively untapped market of gamers that want to participate but lack access and we’re excited to support their growth.”
“Every time a new paradigm in technology opens up – the internet, web browsers, mobile phones, or social networks – there is always a lot of noise, and the majority fails to sustain beyond the initial hype” John Fazio, CEO, and Founder of Nerd Street Gamers added.
“With blockchain, it’s been no different. Our partnership with FTX US is focused on arming our gamers with context and knowledge to cut through the noise of getting rich quick schemes and see the real value of this new technology.”
Blockchain and cryptocurrency have been making headways in the industries of gaming and esports, and have also gone beyond, with media companies and Crypto SEO even gaining traction over the past several months due to the growth.
