About Ignite Tournaments


Ignite Tournaments is the world’s first play-to-earn mobile esports tournament organizer, providing tournament functionality to games that do not have tournament infrastructure.


Ignite Tournaments is a tournament layer platform that sits above a native blockchain game deployed in mobile format. The platform combines esports tournament organization, streaming services with instantaneous payouts in crypto and NFTs, and provides play-to-earn functionality to any game.

Mobile gaming is the largest and fastest-growing segment of the video game software market. It is roughly equivalent in size to the combined PC and console gaming market, and is larger than many other media formats that compete for consumer time. Ignite Tournaments is solving for lack of optimization for mobile-centric games from the existing offering in the market, which is typically multi-platform focused, with mobile deployment as an afterthought. The platform  can add additional value in two ecosystems, creating double earning potential for gamers. Additionally, it allows for brands, guilds, tournament organizers, and game publishers to activate their audiences and sell sponsorships—a capability that, traditionally, was not available.
Ignite Tournaments’ customers consist of native blockchain-based gamers, guilds, retail token investors, and game developers.
