Fandom launches new esports prediction platform

| By Robert Fletcher
Esports-focused Fandom has announced the launch of a new platform allowing fans to predict the outcome of esports events.

The Fandom Sports Esports prediction platform is live on Fandomesports.gg, with users able to make predictions on events based around video game titles such as League of Legends, DOTA 2 and CS:GO.

The launch of the prediction platform comes ahead of Fandom’s planned roll-out of an esports wagering platform later this year.

“Our platform is a one-of-a-kind technology and what is live now is only the tip of the iceberg of what we have planned and what our technology is capable of,” Fandom president and chief executive David Vinokuro said.

“We’re currently testing various payment gateways and will launch the full wagering platform in early Q2 2021 once our private cloud infrastructure is deployed.

Vinokuro added that the business planned on minting and deploying non-fungible tokens as rewards on its free-to-play platform.

“Furthermore, we are building out our rewards matrix to encapsulate recent announcements pertaining to our non-fungible token strategy,” he said.
