Tokenpay replied to a tweet by OTCmarket.Trade about being the new owner of the domain name esports.io. After diving in to the confirmation from Tokenpay, we dig up some info about them and what their connection is to Verge.
What is the news?
On Twitter some research was shared about the Tokenpay CEO who might have purchased the domain name esports.io for no less than $40,000. Weblog and forum for USA Over The Counter stocks decided to send out word about that and the Tokenpay twitter account responded with a confirmation. This is the first tweet:
We are working on an eSports platform. Details are top secret at the moment but we expect it to be released this year. Likely within a few months. Lots of gamers in the #TokenPay community. $TPAY will lead the way in this category.

Tokenpay and eSport?!
Well, that might be a less awkward connection than most people think. Remember Verge being involved in the adult industry where it wants to be the main cryptocurrency people use? Online gaming and eSports are also billion dollar markets which are just getting started.
XVG.nu expect the eSports market to be the next big thing after online pron. 🙂
