chiliZ (esports token) says they'll invest $10mn into Battle Royale esports organisations

CHILIZ TO INVEST $10 MILLION INTO ‘BATTLE ROYALE’ ESPORTS ORGANISATIONS

24th May, 2018, MALTA: chiliZ.com, the esports platform where fans have a voice in managing team business, has today announced plans to invest at least $10 million in partnerships with esports organisations who compete in ‘Battle Royale’ type games such as PUBG or Fortnite.

chiliZ will either invest in small esports organisations, enabling them to enter the ‘Battle Royale’ world, or will partner with larger organisations to empower their fans to build a new and unique experience.

“We will provide funding and our fan-engagement/fan-monetisation platform to esports organisations who are looking to enter the competitive ‘Battle Royale’ gaming landscape.
