A New Frontier
By Ruben Oesterling
On November 18th, Africa will launch its largest Web3 esports gaming league with an inaugural tournament. A game app store, Play1st, and a blockchain infrastructure, Cassava Network, came together and created the Cassava x Play1st Cup. Teams across Africa will compete for NFT prizes on the battle royale-style mobile game, Thetan Arena. This is perfect for the expansion of esports. This can spark heat and ignite in the country’s gaming realm.
As technology and the internet grows across the globe, their target audience is the youth. They’ll continue to thrive and develop while younger people access them. According to other findings, those under the age of 25 make up over half of Africa’s population. There could also be millions of gamers in the country.
Something as big as this event can increase the number of gamers in Africa. With the popular game and prizes promoting it, gamers will flock to this tournament and give it their all. The game’s developers built an African server to prevent latency a few months ago. Who knows what else will be introduced to these gamers in years to come?
