Leading eSports organization Team Vitality on Thursday signed a 3-year deal with Tezos to revamp the fan experience. The Paris-based franchise is zooming on blockchain technology to create new ways of rewarding fans.
Vitality seeks to improve the engagement between the community and its star players, which will be made possible by utilizing Tezos’ energy-efficient blockchain ecosystem. In return, Team Vitality will represent Tezos by championing the blockchain platform’s brand at the biggest stage.
Team Vitality fans will be able to get closer to their favourite teams and earn rewards whilst learning about the benefits of blockchain as part of the gaming experience.
