About

Opportunity

Not only is the eSports market in the midst of an economic boom, but new revenue stream opportunities are also emerging on a daily basis within this broader marketplace. New technologies such as smart contracts, decentralized applications, and the Blockchain represent an unprecedented opportunity for a successful company to pinpoint its niche in the evolving gaming universe. We believe established companies in particular stand to gain the most from the application of new emerging technologies to online gaming.

Solution

eSports have evolved from a simple simple amusement into a full-fledged entertainment phenomenon on par with many traditional sports. Professional eSports teams now hold multi-million-dollar sponsorships, compete in tournaments around the world, and fill up entire arenas with supporters (and soon, they will take over television lineups). New generations are now growing up inspired by adults who can make a living by playing video games and more and more eSports enthusiasts want to pursue this newly formed career path. The next frontier in competitive gaming will be creating the opportunity for gamers to play eSports directly from the comfort of their own homes, without having to find a sponsor to financially support them. None of this will be possible without the introduction of a platform that will allow gamers to monetize their winnings. Yamzu wishes to provide players with a browserbased platform for eSports that will specifically cater to this need. Yamzu’s platform is tailored to include every type of player, amateurs and professionals alike. Yamzu has already successfully integrated Counterstrike Global Offensive (“CS:GO”) and League of Legends (“LoL”) on its platform, and now that both titles are live, other computer based games have entered the pipeline and are scheduled to be implemented in the near future.

The Company

Yamzu is a successful Swedish Gaming Company with a current user base of over 10,000 players. We earn revenue, and we have worked to put forth a recognizable brand. Both of these characteristics stand our organization in good stead to take full advantage of the new revenue streams opportunities generated by Blockchainrelated technology. Yamzu is different from its newly formed competitors since it is an active and real business which has already been in operation since 2016 and has since than achieved a staggering result of 300% growth rate on revenues. Yamzu’s team has accumulated direct experience on the field that cannot be replicated by its newly formed competitors. This means that Yamzu can implement its groundbreaking ideas much faster than the rest of the market. Since gamers recognize our brand, they will be quick to adapt to our platform. Yamzu has already earned and allocated significant amounts of revenue into the business therefore we are ideally positioned to repurpose the potential funds obtainable through the Token Sale to pursue the expansion of our business worldwide thanks to the implementation of Blockchain technology.
