WARSAW, POLAND, February 1, 2018 – Yesterday marked the first Kinguin&Friends event of 2018, and it was a very special Kinguin&Friends at that. Many members of the Kinguin community showed up to take part in the talks and panels offered by European esports’ best and brightest. We covered a large variety of topics, all the way from investing in esports and future innovation for teams and other esports organizations. But that wasn’t all…
MC2 with Viktor Wanli and Anna Streżyńska
Kinguin CEO, Viktor Wanli, and former Polish Minister of Digitization, Anna Streżyńska, announced the formation of a new technology company – MC2. This new company will set a new standard in blockchain and smart technologies around the world, offering services for implementation of smart technologies, training and certification, consultation and much more. With innovative technologies like blockchain reshaping the way we do business on a daily basis, MC2 will be at the forefront of this innovation, acting as a go-to player for anyone looking to invest in blockchain and other new smart technologies.
Kinguin Polish Esports Performance Centre
Adding to the excitement of the MC² announcement was the additional announcement of Kinguin’s planned Polish Esports Performance Centre – a new training and production facility. This new facility is aimed at providing esports teams a world-class place to train with one another as well as develop high-quality content for fans and investors.
Esports and Innovation Panels
The rest of the day was full of insightful panels by industry experts from all over Europe and the USA. Our keynote speaker and Kinguin advisor, Stephen A. Crystal, Esq. opened the talks by discussing investment in esports and the uncertainty it brings investors and how to deal with the risk.
