2020 has been a transitional year for many industries, with some struggling under the strain of COVID restrictions while others have been afforded a new found space to flourish. Two industries that have experienced growth due to global events this year are DeFi and eSports gaming.
At the beginning of 2020, the total Decentralized Finance market was worth $680 million USD. Today the very same market is worth a staggering $6.68 billion, equating to almost 1000% growth in under a year. Although not as drastic as DeFi, the global eSports gaming industry has also taken leaps forward this year, and is poised to reach $1.6 billion over the next 3 years, with the total gaming market set to reach $200 billion.BitSport eSports EcosystemOne company that has recognised the potential in marrying these two industries is BitSport, a decentralized eSports platform looking to create an opportunity for players who want to monetize their gaming skills. The London-based eSports platform has a revolutionary ecosystem in which anyone can sponsor individual gamers, eSports events, and tournaments for cryptocurrency winings.BitSports platform uses their in-house BTP token that can be staked by users for P2P matches and challenges.

The Platform also uses transparent escrow that resolves any potential player disputes fairly.DeFi GamingThe platform enables anyone to be a part of the DeFi wave and earn from investing tokens, or sponsoring players, events, and tournaments. Users of the platform can sponsor their favourite eSports player, by staking native BFI tokens, or stable coins (like DAI and USDT) in a pool with other platform users to farm more BFI. Sponsoring extends far beyond the player on BitSport though. Users can back specific tournaments and challenges with others to farm both BFI and BTP tokens.To further collaborate with DeFi users and create greater access to BFI tokens, BitSport have enabled automatic swaps on DeFi token swap platforms for stable coins such as DAI, USDT and USDC. By increasing interoperability and access to all of these digital currencies BitSport aims to grow their ecosystem, community, and increase synergy with DeFi token users and gamers alike.BFI Token PresaleThe driving token behind the eSports ecosystem is the native BFI token.
