Leading eSports organization Ampverse partnered with Bitkub, Thailand’s biggest digital exchange company, to develop a suite of exclusive NFT products and experiences for the eSports and gaming community.

This is part of Ampverse’s long-term strategy of acquiring and developing metaverse-related gaming assets. Bitkub will also become the official trading partner for one of Ampverse’s eSports teams, Bacon Time.

Fans will be able to access these exclusive Bacon Time NFTs, eSports player cards, and other fan collectibles via the website https://www.bitkubnft.com/.

“Together with Bitkub, we’re thrilled to create new innovative products and bring excitement to Bacon Time’s community of over ten million followers across Facebook, Youtube, Instagram, and TikTok. The gaming industry will see continuous growth and the future will be driven by technology with the likes of NFTs, play-to-earn, and digital assets. Alongside Web3, it will redefine and reshape the world of gaming and entertainment as we know it,” said Ferdinand Gutierrez, Co-founder, and CEO, Ampverse.

eSports and fintech are among the world’s fastest-growing industries and have a massive influence on pop culture, reshaping our lifestyles and the way we consume entertainment. The eSports industry is expected to reach $1.8 billion globally in 2022, with Southeast Asia among the world’s fastest-growing markets. Thailand holds the title of the second-largest gaming market in Southeast Asia, with over 67% of the online population (or 34 million people) identifying as gamers. There is a massive opportunity for brands to invest in this space and engage with young digital-savvy consumers via their passion points.

“Bitkub has strong intentions to elevate the eSports industry by utilizing our blockchain technology. We adapt our business to create activities and valuable experiences for eSports fans and communities as a whole, starting with the launch of official stores on Bitkub NFT. This marks a significant milestone which ultimately connects with the future of metaverse and speaks to the potential of leveraging the technology of Bitkub Chain,” said Jirayut Srupsrisopa, Group CEO, Bitkub Capital Group Holdings.
