Mazer Gaming to Mint NFTs on the GoChain Blockchain for Popular Esports Charity Tournament Series
Mazer Gaming to work with the GoChain Foundation to mint unique NFTs in support of the Mazer Gaming Gives Back charity tournament series
RENO, NV / NEW YORK, NY — April 06, 2021 — Mazer Gaming, a professional esports and entertainment organization, has announced plans to collaborate with the GoChain Foundation to mint unique esports- and gaming-related digital content and files in the form of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on the GoChain blockchain. Mazer Gaming plans to work closely with GoChain and other partners to raise proceeds from the auction of the NFTs as well as via Mazer’s popular “Mazer Gaming Gives Back” (MGGB) esports tournament series to support Gamers Outreach and other children- and pandemic-related charities and relief initiatives. To date, Mazer has helped to raise millions of dollars through the first two runnings of the popular MGGB charitable esports tournament series.
Mazer is among a relatively small group of professional esports organizations, which are actively involved in the blockchain space and helping to drive the adoption of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Mazer over the years has partnered with multiple decentralized ledger solution providers and ecosystems to drive awareness of and to advance the adoption of blockchain technology applications. Mazer also sees NFTs, with its recent rise and popularity, not only as a mechanism for further connecting and deepening engagement with Mazer’s fanbase but, like GoChain, also understands that NFTs can serve as an effective vector for raising funds for charities and worthwhile social causes.
Mazer was founded in 2014 initially as a Call of Duty sniping team. Today, Mazer’s professional team primarily focuses on Pokemon Go and Super Smash Bros. tournaments and competitions. Through its in-house content creation team and vast partner network, Mazer also maintains a considerable Twitch and social media following with hundreds of thousands of fans and followers. In addition to creating NFTs for the MGGB tournament series, Mazer also plans to work with GoChain to create novel digital fan memorabilia and collectibles for its considerable fanbase. GoChain will also assist Mazer with the minting of NFTs, its auctions, and trading of NFTs in secondary markets. Both organizations anticipate significant opportunities for blockchain technology to significantly impact and benefit the broader global esports and gaming communities.
Today’s announcement follows similar recent news by GoChain, which is also collaborating with US-based Fins Attached to mint NFTs in support of marine conservation and shark research and expeditions.
“We strongly believe that minting NFTs for one of our upcoming charity events is the perfect first step for this partnership and will continue to explore new ways to integrate Mazer Gaming into the GoChain ecosystem.” said Sam Kijak, owner and CEO of Mazer Gaming.
“We are proud to work with impact-oriented organizations such as Mazer Gaming, which has really stepped up and done a lot to help families particularly hospitalized children during the ongoing pandemic. Our support of Mazer Gaming and its Mazer Gaming Gives Back tournament series not only provides another avenue for raising charitable proceeds and driving fan engagement but also serves to showcase novel uses and the multi-faceted benefits of NFTs.” said Henry Ines, CEO of GoChain.
