Ethereum token gambling is coming to Unikrn, an esports betting platform that allows punters to bet on gamers playing such popular titles as League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Call of Duty and others. Like the pro tennis and pro golf circuits, professional video gamer teams compete in worldwide tournaments in their chosen fields of combat.

The company, backed by Mark Cuban, Ashton Kutcher, Elisabeth Murdoch, and Shari Redstone plans to sell UnikoinGold, a token that will allow its community to engage in live betting. The UnikoinGold inital coin offering will be available to the public through a token sale launching September 22, with a goal of selling $100 million worth of UnikoinGold.

Founded in 2014 by gaming industry veterans Rahul Sood and Karl Flores, Unikrn has offices in Berlin, Seattle, Sydney and Las Vegas. Unikrn analyzes esports and data to deliver betting products across multiple countries around the world, and we also provide our users with the opportunity to win the most exciting rewards. Bringing together the worlds of esports and wagering, Unikrn is uniquely positioned to enhance the experience gamers have when doing what they enjoy most — playing and watching esports.  For more information, please visit unikrn.com, follow us @unikrnco and find us on Facebook.

“The decentralized UnikoinGold token breaks down barriers for our users, giving them more autonomy and opportunity to participate on our platform, with flexibility to trade in a more open marketplace,” said Rahul Sood, CEO of Unikrn. “Our improved esports betting system is creating a new world of opportunity for cryptocurrency wagering that is legal, safe and fun. Competitive gaming thrives on innovation, risk and reward, and we believe that UnikoinGold is the breakthrough that the esports world has been waiting for.”

UnikoinGold will allow users to earn prizes, hardware, and unlock exclusive features. Unikrn has partnered with blockchain and token sale platform CoinCircle to collaborate on the design, development, and launch of UnikoinGold.

CoinCircle works with existing VC-backed companies to tokenize their already scaled businesses and launch token sales. Developed as an ERC20 token, UnikoinGold will be used on Unikrn’s new-and-improved, skill-based betting platform.

The company’s whitepaper is available online.
