Have you guys heard about Unikrn? It is a specialized eSports platform that has been gaining a lot of popularity over the last couple of months. After gathering a lot of money from investors including the big guns such as Mark Cuban and Ashton Kutcher, Unikrn is rapidly growing into something much bigger than a mere eSports betting website.
Just a couple of days ago (on June 19th, 2017 if we are to be more precise here), the CEO of Unikrn Rahul Sood has announced their newest (and most expensive) project – Unikoin Gold. This all new cryptocurrency is ready to be unveiled to the public with some wise words coming from the CEO.
“For nearly two years — since the introduction of the Unikoin —we've been building, testing and improving our in-house chipset. We’ve seen over a quarter of a billion Unikoins change hands in that test period, and now we’ve arrived at the next step: it’s time to introduce our cryptocurrency — #UnikoinGold.”
What exactly is Unikoin Gold?
Unikoin Gold is a brand new type of cryptocurrency that is based on decentralized ERC20 token on the Ethereum blockchain. One of its main uses is to provide an additional form of liquidity and support fully legal eSports betting. Since the eSports betting industry is growing at an exponential rate, such a move was sort of expected. Long story short – Unikoin Gold will aim to become a decentralized value of virtual economy fueled by eSports and other skill-based platforms. The entire system is 100% legal and will allow people from all over the world to enjoy its benefits.
Before Unikoin Gold, as some of you might be familiar with, Unikoins were Unikrn's form of virtual currency that was heavily used on their platform. You could bet on it, earn it by playing popular eSports franchises and then exchange it for awesome gaming prizes. It's that simple.
Now, with Unikoin Gold, Unikrn is stepping up into the cryptocurrency territory with big improvements in encryption and reliability of their virtual currency system. There is a lot of hectic competition in the industry so Unikoin Gold will have a difficult task going forward. Will this be a massive hit and further increase the growth of eSports betting industry? Only time will tell – but from what we can see, it is a highly interesting project that could cause quite an upset!
