Esports Technologies To Join Forces With Paddy Power’s Virtual Sports Stock Exchange ASX
Targets U.S. Market with Potential to Reach 90 Million American Users
Esports Technologies Inc. a leading global provider of advanced esports wagering products and technology, announced it has entered into a letter of intent to form a strategic alliance with American SportZ Exchange (ASX), a new virtual sports trading exchange. Through this proposed collaboration, Esports Technologies aims to deliver its industry-focused data feed (pre-play and in-play) and expertise to support ASX in the creation of a more esports-focused product.
ASX was launched in May 2021 by Paddy Power the son of David Power who founded the sports betting brand of the same name (Flutter Entertainment is the parent company of Paddy Power and also owns companies such as Betfair and FanDuel). ASX enables users with the ability to buy and sell virtual shares in esports teams and individual players. It offers live “share prices” of teams and players, based on an AI-driven algorithm and live data feeds. ASX is mainly targeting the U.S. market and has the potential to reach some 90 million American users.
Under the proposed alliance, Esports Technologies expects to provide real-time data and statistics to power the platform’s esports execution. The analytics provided by Esports Technologies is expected to add a new dimension of live engagement and peer-to-peer predictions for esports betting on ASX, all with the mission of bringing higher liquidity and improving customer retention.
