The first regulated crypto fund BELOBABA invests 1MEuro in Team Queso

  • BELOBABA becomes lead investor after the tokenisation of the club last March in a round of security token financing
  • The agreement was presented this Friday at the Ubeat Live festival, which served to detail Team Queso's new strategic alliance in its commitment to GameFi
  • This joint venture opens up a range of opportunities for collaboration between the two organisations through the creation of new lines of business

Team Queso, a leading esports club in mobile gaming, takes a step forward in its business strategy by incorporating BELOBABA, the leading investment fund in the tokenised video game industry and member of the Blockchain Game Alliance (BGA), as a lead investor, with a contribution of €1M.

Beyond the financial investment, BELOBABA will bring its proven expertise in the field of decentralised finance as the first hedge fund with a regulated security token (KHAN). In March of this year, the esports club opened a financing round through the issuance of security tokens that gave investors the right to participate in the company. In part, the sale of these is aimed at acquiring 20% of the club's equity.

BELOBABA and the Blockchain division of Team Queso, TQ Olympo, revealed the details of their strategic alliance that will lead the way in the tokenisation of esports, facilitating access to Blockchain Gaming to investors and fans; and that will also be a definitive step in the tokenisation of the club, a benchmark in mobile gaming and in its commitment to GameFi.

All of this was part of the opening day of the Ubeat Live esports, freestyle and urban art festival, which took place this Friday, 1 July, at Fira de Barcelona and will run until Sunday, 3 July. This event brings together the main esports clubs of the scene and is presented as a reference event for Gen Zers.

The co-founder and CEO of Team Queso, Álvaro González de Buitrago, explained during the presentation that the agreement reached with BELOBABA is "a fundamental strategic step in the trajectory of the club. To be backed by the first regulated crypto fund as a lead investor consolidates the project we started a few months ago with the tokenisation of the club and, secondly, makes us see that we are heading in the right direction. We want to revolutionise the esports sector with this step forward and having BELOBABA as a partner is the best guarantee of success".

"Being able to invest in a leading project with TQ Olympo is great news for the growth of BELOBABA. This strategic alliance will reaffirm the company's position as a benchmark investment fund in the sector of tokenised video games and their integration into esports, which are key for the mass adoption of cryptocurrencies," said the company's founder and chairman, Lluís Mas.

A pioneering agreement in the esports sector

With this agreement, BELOBABA will directly participate in Team Queso's business which, according to BELOBABA, is a "groundbreaking project in gaming and esports with great projection".

Thanks to this joint venture, the regulated crypto fund will have access to the entire community of one of the best teams in the world in terms of competition in mobile gaming, which opens up a wide range of possibilities for collaboration to grow both organisations through the opening of new lines of business such as cross-marketing actions; educational programmes in gaming, esports, blockchain and cryptocurrencies; or the creation of a venture capital area for joint investment and exploitation in new tokenised gaming projects.

For its part, the esports club, through the partnership with BELOBABA, receives in return a significant investment that will allow it to improve the different divisions of the club, its content creation and to invest in technology.

Team Queso not only offers content for entertainment, but also intends to provide extra value to its entire community and to this end will provide free training courses for all Team Queso investors, as well as boot camps for all those related to the gaming and esports sector. In addition, it will have a blockchain games research team that will promote the professionalisation of these blockchain games given that they are the games content creators play on a daily basis.

About Team Queso

Team Queso is a Spanish esports organisation founded in February 2017 by YouTuber Álvaro "Alvaro845" González de Buitrago and Alicia "Alimorol" Morote Oliver. It features teams competing via mobile, PC and console. The club was Clash Royale world champion in 2020, as well as several times European and South American champion in other titles such as Rocket League or PUBG Mobile. As part of its strategy to expand into new business areas, Team Queso acquired the esports information platform Appgrade and the Patographics studio, which is integrated into the audiovisual content department; in addition to the video game company Metaworld, from which Chili Cheese Games, a mobile and blockchain video game studio, originated.

About BELOBABA

BELOBABA is the first multi-strategy cryptocurrency hedge fund with a regulated security token. Endorsed by the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission, the KHAN token provides its holders with rights to capital growth from multiple trading strategies on specialised exchanges and a transparent governance regime, which enables investment decisions to be made with the advice of a team of specialist and experienced advisors who provide insight based on technical, fundamental, on-chain and sentiment analysis. BELOBABA also has a native utility token for its BBCN community, powered by the BELOBABA Academy training centre and available through the BELOBABA Launchpad incubator.

First Place Winner "Inner Room" Claims $25,000 Prize from Among 100+ Entries Spotlighting Game-Forward Treatments for Stress, Depression and Anxiety

DeepWell Digital Therapeutics (DTx) has revealed the winners of the company's inaugural Mental Health Game Jam, hosted in partnership with Global Game Jam. Bringing together a community of global developers to create valuable therapeutic experiences through games, DeepWell's Mental Health Game Jam was created to inspire games that can entertain while simultaneously addressing stress, anxiety, and depression and foster support and understanding for those dealing with mental health challenges.

Judged by a trusted panel of game industry luminaries and medical veterans – including Shahid Ahmad , Rami Ismail , Dr. Leeza Maron , American McGee, Alanah Pearce and Dr. Anne Marie Porter – across multiple criteria including gameplay, treatment mechanics, and furthering of understanding for mental health issues, DeepWell is proud to announce the first class of winners from more than 100 games submitted:

GRAND PRIZE | $25,000 USD

GAME: Inner Room

DEVELOPER: byebyesama

DESCRIPTION: "Inner Room is a game where you play three days of lockdown as a person dealing with depression, where his place of true elaboration is in his dreams. When awake, our main character must complete the most mundane tasks – waking up, eating, showering, and opening a window. In any typical game, these tasks would require just one click. Now you will need your whole keyboard to sort them out."

LINK: https://byebyesama.itch.io/inner-room

SECOND PLACE | $10,000 USD

GAME: Biotopîco
DEVELOPER: Everyday Lemonade

DESCRIPTION: "In Bíotópico, players can grow real trees using the Oxygen resource that is produced from their breath practice. We're partnering with OneTreePlanted.org to plant a physical tree on the player's behalf each time a digital tree is grown."

LINK: https://everydaylemonade.itch.io/biotopico

THIRD PLACE | $5,000 USD

GAME: Fumble

DEVELOPER: ComfyDev

DESCRIPTION: "Fumble is a puzzle game about how it feels to struggle to talk. It tells the story of someone suffering from social anxiety without realising it… The gameplay acts as a playable metaphor of social anxiety and offers what we believe is one possible representation of what it feels like to have the condition."

LINK: https://namidasai.itch.io/fumble

"We truly believe in the power of games to help treat mental illness," said Mike Wilson , co-founder, DeepWell DTx.
