Bernhard Mogk, SVP Global Business Development at ESL Gaming, commented on how the partnership will help develop the esports and NFT industries further.
“The Immutable team has gaming in their DNA and we share the same vision for the future of NFTs,” he said.
“We could not be more excited to launch on Immutable X the best possible community-driven and fan-centric collectable platform to buy, collect and own some of the most memorable moments in EPT history.”
The platform has also committed to offsetting its carbon footprint via a certified climate-conscious partner, Trace and Cool Effect – According to Immutable X, this will make “every NFT on its Layer 2 100% carbon neutral.”
Speaking of the partnership, Robbie Ferguson, co-founder of Immutable X, said:
“We are thrilled to partner with a leader like ESL and look forward to a great partnership in the years to come.”
Esports remain a relatively unexplored industry for crypto and NFTs, with further growth expected due to the popularity of ‘metaverse’ type environments and the rise of NFT and blockchain gaming platforms such as Axie Infinity.
