We recently chatted with Kingsley Edwards of BLOCK-CON to discuss the token sale of UnikoinGold. In our live event, we went in depth on the subject of token sales, discussed the eSports gaming industry, how to find good token sales, and how to buy UnikoinGold.
The eSports Gaming Industry
The eSports gaming industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world right now. eSports is essentially professional video gaming, and is even bigger than actual sports in some countries. There is a ton of money being invested in this industry, and also into advertising as this industry continues to expand. Games like League of Legends, Counterstrike, and more recently PUBG are exploding in popularity in this industry.
What is Unikrn?
Unikrn was established in November of 2014. The company is the best fully-regulated and licensed eSports bookmaker on the planet. Over the last three years Unikrn has built the most technologically-advanced wagering platform for eSports, including both skill-based and spectator betting products. They have also thoroughly tested the efficacy of real-money wagering in our eSports book for both the UK and Australia.
Two years ago, Unikrn created a token called Unikoin. Their users love Unikoin because it gives them an opportunity to bet on eSports, ladder up and win prizes in markets where Unikrn is not yet licensed to conduct real-money wagering. They’ve spent the past two years honing this product and enhancing the user experience, and they started to gain in popularity. With over a quarter of a billion Unikoins turned over, they decided it’s time to take the platform to the next level by introducing their own cryptocurrency: UnikoinGold.
What is UnikoinGold?
UnikoinGold is an ERC20 Ethereum-based token that will serve as an entry to a new version of the existing Unikrn spectator betting system. It will also become the exclusive token used on Unikrn’s skill-based betting platform. It will power both wagering and non-wagering experiences throughout the Unikrn platform, thus creating the first viable eSports eco-system that will reward the players, content-creators and spectators alike.
How to Find Good Token Sales
Token sales or ICO’s have become the hot thing as of late. However, it’s important you don’t just invest with anyone trying to pitch their token sale. You must thoroughly research companies and entities doing token sales and see if they have adequate security measures to ensure the safety of the cryptocurrency you pay with. Unikoingold is built on ERC20, which means the transaction of the tokens will take place on a secure and established blockchain, specifically the Ethereum blockchain.
How to buy Unikoingold
Buying Unikoingold is a fairly straightforward process. Here is how you can do it in 5 Steps
- Sign Up: Go to Unikoingold.com and sign up with your name and email.
- Verify: Verify your email and your phone number.
- Setup Wallet: If you don’t currently own Ethereum, you can setup a wallet to purchase Ethereum. Since UnikoinGold is built on ERC20, you cannot use Coinbase’s wallet to pay for UnikoinGold. It is reccomended that you use MyEtherWallet instead.
- Transfer Ether: Once you setup your wallet you can use a fiat currency to purchase Ether.
- Purchase Unikoingold: Now that you have Ether you are able to purchase Unikoingold.
