Live eSports Comes to Pnxbet As SportsBetting Goes Coronavirus-Proof

Sports Betting in Lockdown

As the entire world locks down, waiting with bated breath for the world to overcome the biggest threat to its existence this century, industries everywhere are forced to go into hibernation, as human activity beyond critical and vital operations comes to a complete standstill.

 

Sports is no exception, as quarantine measures also meant that physical gaming and sporting events had to be postponed or even canceled, to prevent the further spread of the dreaded coronavirus or Covid-19. Even the huge Euro 2020 competition and Olympics 2020 event, as widely-anticipated as ever, have all been postponed to at least 2021, with some leagues even ending early and declaring winners. No sports has been safe. Tennis, soccer, American football, basketball, swimming, have all been shelved while the global pandemic response continues, keeping people safely behind doors.

 

But sports betting is what is taking the biggest hit, especially in countries like the United Kingdom, where 75% of the sports betting market is made up of football and horse racing. With these events called off indefinitely, bookies can only guess at what is in store for them. Bookmakers have shut down shops, and even online, market lines are empty, so digital bookies have not been spared.

 

Of course, the sports industry has been quite resilient, with the hugely successful FIFA #QuaranTeam event drawing loads of sports fans from across the world to watch real football players battle it out over a video game, livestreamed direct into the homes of fans.

 

And now Pnxbet, the leading crypto sportsbook, has joined the fray with its own unique offering of eSports via its own Live eSports section. Now, crypto gamblers can experience an entire new experience that not only lets them watch live eSports, but bet on them in real time, with unique odds in a wide market offering all kinds of interesting lines that change fluidly with the flow of the game. 

 

eSports Betting to the rescue

eSports has been the logical market to explore, as it breaks all physical barriers. What’s more, the younger generations are well adapted to online gaming and the concept of going up against strangers on the other side of the world is as appealing as it is exciting.

 

And now, with Pnxbet’s Live eSports offering, players can still enjoy the thrill of watching people fight it out online across all kinds of games but also add a sting to the thrill by providing live odds, ensuring that there are more than one ways to grow the bond between players, franchises, and fans.

 

In fact, due to the nature of eSports, action, emotion, and engagement can all be shared and interacted with easily online for viral reception, as was shown with the  NBA 2K20 Players Tournament. The popularity of such an opportunity has even led to United States regulators to try and speed up regulatory approval for the market in such a crisis, so that the industry leverages booming demand and viewership.

 

eSports Joins the Pnxbet Family of Online Gambling

Naturally, players can continue to enjoy casino, poker, and live casino games as usual, even with the new PNXBet focus on virtual sports and eSports.

 

And as part of its push to develop what it believes will be the fastest-growing segment of online betting, Pnxbet has signed up three Southeast Asian eGaming streamers to be its partners: Coach Byb, Guso Gaming, and Xan PH. Together, they hope to corner the top eSports titles Dota2 and CS:GO, leveraging the millions of fans watching many major tournaments every year, while exploring Tennis R.G. Cup, virtual Europa League, and NBA Regular Cyber Cup, among many others.

German Bundesliga Joins English Football in Opening Doors to Crypto

Bundesliga top-flight German football club Hamburg SV has found a new partner in Fintech Powerhouse NAGA for the 2018/19 season.

As blockchain and cryptocurrency find its way into football as recently highlighted by English Premiership’s Wolves latest move in signing cryptocurrency exchange CoinDeal as its sleeve sponsor, now German clubs are getting in on the act.

NAGA is a publicly-traded fintech company founded in Hamburg, Germany in October 2015. Naga Group produces companies that embrace technological changes in financial markets.

Its new partnership in the German premier football league (Bundesliga) will see the Hamburg SV’s Volksparkstadion displaying hoarding advertising the company, although it’s unclear if the promotion will extend to players’ strips.

NAGA executive director Benjamin Bilski commented on the announcement that crypto was breaking into German football:

“Our values and entrepreneurial attitudes are a perfect match, especially as HSV is open to new technologies, which is exactly what NAGA stands for. Because we are very familiar with statistics and technology, sophisticated and constantly new applications play a big role in our success.”

As Bitcoin News recently reported, fintech and sport are becoming increasingly entwined following CoinDeal promoting its exchange on the sleeves of Wolves, newly promoted to the English premier league. In the US, basketball team Sacramento Kings launched its MiningForGood program, installing Ethereum crypto mining equipment at its NBA stadium.

Johannes Haupt, senior director, Team Hamburg SV at Lagardère Sports, noted:

“We have developed a comprehensive package of services tailored to the company’s objectives, with a special focus on digital communication, enabling exciting projects along the path of our long-term cooperation.”

As Steemit blogger ‘worldclassplayer’ wrote recently, sport and crypto could be a win-win situation, as eSports is already showing:

“Owners of sports teams. Each team has its own cryptocurrency. That’s equivalent to being your own private bank with your own currency. That’s huge. Takes Funding and Project Development projects to the highest level of excellence.”
