Following the partnerships' successful launch of the 2021 tournament series that featured game titles such as Valorant, APEX Legends, and Guilty Gear Strive, 7-Eleven and TGS are hosting four unique events for Canadian gamers showcasing Rocket League.

On March 20 , eight of the top Canadian collegiate teams went head-to-head in The Collegiate Rocket League Championships. St. Clair College defeated the University of Alberta in the Grand Finals, taking home the bulk of the $4,500 prize pool and bragging rights as the Champions of the North.

The weekend of March 25-27 , 7-Eleven took over TGS' home venue, The Gaming Stadium, and created the 7-Eleven Gamers Lounge. This free in-person event, attended by more than 500 enthusiastic gaming fans, was highlighted by a Rocket League watch party, free-play tournaments, arcade games, exciting gaming activations, mouth-watering 7-Eleven food, and prizes throughout the weekend.

"We're incredibly excited to partner with TGS Esports to host the ultimate weekend of gaming and snacking at the 7-Eleven Gamers Lounge," says Norman Hower , VP & GM of 7-Eleven Canada. "Knowing how important it is for the gaming community to keep fueled and have the perfect setup for gaming sessions and watch parties, this was a natural partnership."

In April, 7-Eleven Canada and TGS will host two additional Rocket League events:

On April 9th eight Canadian influencers will compete in the Rocket League Charity Challenge. Each influencer will play for a charity of their choice with $8,000 to be donated.

On April 30th gamers from across North America will compete in a massive free-to-play Rocket League Open Tournament with a huge $8,000 prize pool up for grabs. The tournament will be hosted on Pepper, TGS' proprietary tournament platform. Both April events will be broadcast live on Twitch and YouTube.

"Our gaming community absolutely loves this partnership. 7-Eleven understands gamers and has done a great job adding value to the gaming experience", says Gopal Patel , COO of TGS Esports. "Through these fun activations 7-Eleven will connect with gamers during moments that matter the most – when they are playing games and when they are livestreaming gaming content."

GameFi Company Murasaki Closes Euro1.5M Seed Round Led by Japanese Incubate Fund

Murasaki, a game studio building decentralized games on the blockchain, has just closed a €1.5 million seed round led by Incubate Fund, one of the largest Japanese venture capital firms specializing in seed stage investing.

(PRNewsfoto/Murasaki)

As Japanese and European serial entrepreneurs and developers operating out of The Netherlands , Murasaki is on a mission to disrupt the GameFi economy. We are currently witnessing a transformation of the gaming industry, with emerging technologies like the blockchain opening new doors and creating endless revenue opportunities for both players and creators. In true Web3 spirit, Murasaki aims to harness the power of community and make a future game engine available to anyone wanting to build blockchain titles.

One of the co-founders, Shunsuke Sasaki , is a serial entrepreneur and angel investor specializing as a game producer. In 2007, after two years, he left and founded Pokelabo Inc, a mobile gaming company. GREE, a Japanese mobile gaming giant, acquired Pokelabo in 2012 for $173.8m . Pokelabo produced some famous titles, such as SINoALICE, that are well- known worldwide. The core founding team from Pokelabo joins Murasaki to build multiple game titles.

With this €1.5 million investment led by Incubate Fund, Murasaki will be able to strengthen its commitment to developing the next generation of decentralized, community-powered games. Murasaki's Cyberstella, an NFT-focused game with a new take on the play and earn model, is set for release in early 2023. Meanwhile, an NFT and official token launch will follow the beta version release in late 2022.

Shinnosuke Murata , Murasaki's CEO and Co-Founder, said: "I was attracted to blockchain technology, which allows consensus building without racial or national boundaries, and founded Murasaki in February 2022 ."

"This investment round is incredibly exciting for us, as it will allow us to further develop our assets and optimize the beta version of Cyberstella, adding new features, worlds, missions and environments. We are also planning to develop a subsequent title as well. We can't wait for people to discover what playing a blockchain title is really like."

Keisuke Wada at Incubate Fund said: "We are thrilled to partner with the Murasaki team, formed by two experienced Japanese entrepreneurs, Mr. Murata and Mr. Sasaki, in taking on the Game-Fi challenge. We look forward to transcending national borders and pioneering an ever-evolving frontier."

Investing in Fantasy Sports Stocks

Investing in Fantasy Sports Stocks

When sports writer Daniel Okrent invented Rotisserie League Baseball in 1979, it’s unlikely that the “father of fantasy sports” could have imagined it would evolve into an US$8.9 billion market.

Of course, much of that growth can be attributed to advancements in technology. Fantasy sports magazines published in the late 1980s became websites in the 1990s, and eventually fantasy sports businesses; more recently there’s been a boom in fantasy sports apps for smartphones.

North America currently represents the largest market for fantasy sports services. Research and Markets estimates that more than 59 million people in the US and Canada play fantasy sports. However, India is set to experience significant market growth in the near-term future, with expectations that the number of players will rise from 20 million to a projected 150 million by 2022.
