The Kronoverse Esports monetization platform uses blockchain technology for a decentralized, transparent multiverse for competitive gaming. The Kronoverse platform allows developers to easily monetize their games by integrating critical eSports features such as player audit trail, in-game advertising, wagering, item ownership, item transfer fees, and item marketplaces. Since all game data will be archived to the blockchain, this allows games to be stored permanently and broadcasted using our Twitch-like match viewer. These unique features create numerous opportunities for cross-game collaboration and tournaments in ways never seen before in the eSports space. In September 2019, Kronoverse secured its second round of funding by billionaire entrepreneur Calvin Ayre.
