North American organisation Tempo Storm has reached a strategic partnership with blockchain service, GamerToken. GamerToken allows players to buy and sell in-game items like unique skins, weapons and objects.
The announcement states that this partnership culminates as Tempo Storm Founder and Owner Andrey “reynad” Yanyuk has recently joined the advisory board of GamerToken in June.
Yanyuk stated: “With GamerToken, the esports genre is taking the next step toward other professional leagues, in which collecting or trading memorabilia items like basketball jerseys with fellow fans is already commonplace.”
Tempo Storm, whose roots are in Hearthstone, is set to release “The Bazaar” – a deckbuilding game based in an intergalactic marketplace where several classes can be played using published cards in your hand. The Bazaar is built on a free-top play model and will integrate GamerToken within it as part of the partnership.
Not only does Tempo Storm field teams in Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, and Fortnite, but it’s a major esports media company with studios for content creation and event hosting. This collaboration will see Tempo Storm skins implemented into the GamerToken Fiesta MMO Blockchain beta and will expand in the future.
This will be GamerToken’s first entrance into esports. Tempo Storm has a long list of sponsors include streaming platform Twitch, clothing company Meta Threads, gaming chair company Secretlab, graphics card company NVIDIA, gaming app store Overwolf, and announced earlier this month, digital autograph platform, Fangage.
Esports Insider says: Certainly an interesting partnership to come for such a talented organisation as Tempo Storm. Blockchain is a hot topic in the space of esports right now and the best time to be a part of a rising company is at the beginning.
