For Alpine Esports the partnership will aid the team’s fan engagement strategy and allow them to create practical use cases that will support internal operations. For QANplatform the partnership aims to illustrate how blockchain technology can be used to develop applications for businesses beyond payments processing.

QANplatform is the Official Blockchain Partner of Alpine Esports where besides the use cases, QANplatform is taking pride of place on the new F1 Esports team jersey and esport cars next to other partners like
Binance, Kappa, and Shamir.

Today Alpine Esports also revealed their brand new content creation facility, the Alpine Esports Content Room “powered by QAN”, built within the walls of their historical F1 factory at Enstone in the United Kingdom.

It is a defining milestone in QANplatform’s journey that Alpine Esports will be among the first companies to build use cases on the upcoming QAN blockchain platform. Launching in 2023, QANplatform will be the quantum-resistant Layer 1 hybrid blockchain platform that will allow developers and enterprises to build quantum-resistant: smart contract, DApp, DeFi, DAO, token, CBDC, NFT, Metaverse, and Web3 solutions on top of the QAN blockchain platform in any programming language.

Johann Polecsak, the Co-Founder and CTO at QANplatform said: “There’s no better sector to test a newly debuting groundbreaking technology product than Formula 1, which is famous for its complex structure and operations, progressive technologies, high performance, and highest levels of quality.”

Formula 1 has been the technological and engineering sandbox for future commercial cars for decades. However, this landscape changed with the appearance of Esports — one of the emerging sports types — thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic. Formula 1 constructor teams use Esports for simulations, to design the fastest and most efficient vehicles in F1 racing. The data generated in Esports creates a valuable testing environment for business decisions.

With the appropriate infrastructure, engineers can focus on correlating the digital and analog worlds. Blockchain is a digital, decentralized public ledger designed to record every data transaction on its network on a tamper-proof way. A Layer 1 blockchain platform, like QANplatform, is the basic infrastructure of all blockchain projects and applications. It is comparable to the operating system of a computer. It is the fundamental base layer on top of which the ecosystem can build endless solutions.

Guillaume Vergnas, the Head of Esports, Gaming & Web3 at Alpine said: “We see Web3 as the evolution of peer to peer relationships. Consumers want to be on platforms that are not owned by tech giants but platforms that are owned by users who can own their own content. Web3 is a new way of engaging with communities, customers and fans. We saw fantastic engagement with our first Web3 activation during the Alpine Esports Series in 2022 and we want to build on that momentum by offering more gamification in our broadcasts. We also see the business potential behind QANplatform’s technology. The flexibility, speed and security behind the platform will allow us to trial practical use cases for blockchain that we hope will streamline our operations.”

Alpine Esports invested in Web3 activations in 2022, playing a pivotal role in their fan engagement strategy with the launch of the Alpine Esports Series which saw them offer $100k worth Alpine Fan Tokens. Bundles of $10,000 worth of Alpine rewards and NFTs were up for grabs during live streams which dramatically increased the viewership of the broadcast.

One of QANplatform’s core product features, the multi-language smart contract capability strongly correlates with this. In comparison, most of the currently existing blockchain platforms offer very limited number of languages for developers to choose from to develop smart contracts (DApps), most of which are brand new languages. On the other platforms developers are forced to learn new languages from ground up, which fundamentally limits the mass adoption of blockchain technology because of the high entry barrier. With QANplatform developers can simply reuse languages they’ve mastered in the last 20 years.

“QANplatform’s ultimate goal as the Official Blockchain Partner of Alpine Esports is to provide the safest, yet most developer-friendly platform on top of which many real-world applications can be built adding tangible value to the industry. Furthermore, our aim is to build these integrations in a way so that they can be scaled and integrated in the future in Alpine Formula 1, or in the wider commercial car industry. Alpine Esports is the very best partner for the horizontal plan since it is owned by the Renault Group, a member of the world’s largest car manufacturer alliance Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance which controls brands like Renault, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Infiniti, Dacia, Alpine, Venucia.” — said Johann Polecsak, the Co-Founder and CTO at QANplatform.
