Recap of the First Week of 2021! Are you ready to game??
We started the year off fast — after a hot Polkastarter launch and Uniswap Listing week, we kept the pace up with several big announcements in true ExceedMe fashion. The first being a new partnership with Blockchain Game Alliance, bringing us into the same group of market innovators as Ubisoft, Mati, Algorand, and the like. We announced our partnership in December alongside OneWayBlock, Tatum, Leyline, Aave, & SuperRare in presentations found here.
With this partnership secured, we further finalized partnerships with additional key market players that can help quickly accelerate our platform’s development. Those partners include: BetProtocol and DIA. BetProtocol is a leader in Esports and Casino Tech, and they plan to grow a community within ExceedMe specifically for $BEPRO holders and stakers. Our partnership vision includes development towards features that will be on display for play in Exceedme; we can’t wait to welcome the BEPRO Community in 2021 powered by tournaments, Esports pros, and exclusive NFTs to drive the player experience forward.
Next, our partnership with Decentralised Information Asset (DIA) opens new pathways for developing custom gaming oracles that allow verified data to be fed into our games for greater user trust and experience. DIA’s primary goal is to supply reliable pricing data to the rapidly developing DeFi world and fill a need that is otherwise fulfilled by non-transparent centralized financial data sources, with built in risks. Their open-source, financial information platform utilises crypto economic incentives to source and validate the data. This model is a natural fit for our community and we intend to explore a dedicated community for $DIA token holder and stakers in 2021.
As if that weren’t enough power players to start the year off with, we also started working with the Esports analytics firm Newzoo, a keystone for gaming data and expert in game related insights and market analytics. Utilizing their Newzoo Pro tool combined with our own blockchain data will strengthen our decentralized structure going forward. Data is critical to a high quality gaming experience across the board, and working together will ensure that the quality of our product increases exponentially in 2021.
Our last partnership to announce this week is the hiring of Arlindo Torres as the Head of Engineering! We are welcoming him to our core team as he has an outstanding background in the gaming sphere as both an engineer and gaming analyst. He has previously worked for Leetify and Vodafone Giants and is also a CS:GO analyst for sAW. He shares our vision of players making transferable money off of their own skills for a rewarding gaming future.
Finally, as we promised you, the BETA platform and BETA TESTERS competition is coming! We will choose 16 players from within our community to be the first to play and earn $XEDs and NFTs via our platform. If you are not registered then we can’t select you, so get registered today!

We can’t wait to see what next week holds…
