They’re all rushing to capitalize on the latest NFT trends.ESL Labs – the world’s largest esports organization – announced on October 28 that it plans to launch a “next-generation NFT collectibles platform” for Counter-Strike Global Offensive (GO) fans on Immutable X, Ether’s second tier solution.

    According to the official message, “The ESL NFT platform, in partnership with Immutable X, will enable esports and Counter-Strike fans around the world to buy, sell and exchange NFT assets within the ESL Pro Tour.” However, this isn’t Counter-Strike parent company ESL’s first foray into the NFT world. It previously launched its IEM Cologne POG series at OpenSea this August!

    This is encouraging news, as it shows that NFT exists and is rapidly gaining cultural recognition. Understandably, other major game developers will follow ESL’s path and may join some form of NFTs/shared game project in the future to stay relevant in a rapidly changing environment. That’s a good way to go.

    About Counter-Strike.

    Counter-Strike (CS) is a series of multiplayer first-person shooter video games in which teams of terrorists fight to commit acts of terror (bombings, hostage-taking, assassinations) while counter-terrorists try to stop the acts of terror (defusing bombs, rescuing hostages). The series began running on the Windows platform in 1999 with the release of the first game, Counter-Strike.

    At the end of each round, players are rewarded with in-game currency based on their individual performance in order to purchase more powerful weapons in subsequent rounds. Winning rounds result in more money than losing, while completing objectives, such as killing enemy players, is rewarded with cash. Uncooperative behavior, such as killing a teammate, results in a penalty – Wikipedia
