The GalAxie Cup 2022 is part of Axie Infinity’s competitive gaming roadmap for 2022. It is held for NFT gaming enthusiasts will start in March with open qualifiers and will be an ideal testbed for VeraEsports’ blockchain technology.

The contract extension is the second big deal VeraEsports has scored this week, the other one being an agreement with Riot Games. The platform partnered with Riot for the 2022 VALORANT Champions Tour Asia-Pacific Challengers.

The tournament will be a great opportunity to test VeraEsports’ Proof of View blockchain technology.
