VeraEsports, a competitive gaming and video streaming platform powered by Verasity, returns for another year with the world-leading NFT-based online video game Axie Infinity for the GalAxie Cup 2022. VeraEsports will be the exclusive broadcaster and official esports platform partner of the online tournament.
GalAxie Cup 2022 is a professional Axie Infinity esports tournament held for NFT gaming enthusiasts that is a part of Axie Infinity’s competitive gaming roadmap for this year. The tournament begins next month, kicking off with Stage 1 Open Qualifiers. The annual Axie Infinity championship will soon open registration to gamers around the globe, with a 3-stage tournament leading up to the final stage—the GalAxie Cup 2022 in November.
“The launch of the GalAxie Cup last year was a huge success and a stepping stone for us to elevate the experience of Axie Esports for our growing community,” said Andrew Campbell, Program Lead for Esports and Content Creators at Axie Infinity. “We are proud to continue extending our investments to further the development of infrastructure that supports Axie Esports. We are very much looking forward to this year’s GalAxie Cup 2022 and are confident it will offer excitement for fans and community from across the globe.”
The online-only event will be exclusively streamed on VeraEsports.com and GalAxieCup.com, with Verasity’s proprietary VeraPlayer used to broadcast the event on both websites. The event will be used to trial Verasity’s patented Proof of View technology, which prevents fraudulent viewership for all types of streamed video content.
A total of 450 AXS will be distributed as a prize pool across the tournament stages with each stage having an open qualifier and playoffs, each with a 150 AXS prize pool. The tournament will also feature Verasity’s Watch and Earn technology, where users will be rewarded just for watching the tournament as long as they have a VeraWallet account.
In addition to VeraEsports’ exclusive broadcast and esports rights for the GalAxie Cup 2022, viewers will also earn unique rewards that will only be made available through the VeraEsports Rewards Store. Axie Infinity NFTs (AXIES) and $VRA tokens will be available for redemption, along with other exclusive items to be announced.
