Thanks, [member=32130]Xypher[/member]

And what about this question:
Do I need to pay anything to enroll a team and become a participant? If so - how much?
What is your business model? Who funds the rewards?

And if CS:GO is so popular, I'm sure there are already online tournaments like yours.
What USP did you achieve by doing it with BitShares?

1. Currently entry is free to participants. Each team comes with 5 participants and they are allocated a BTS wallet (the fee for which we pay).
2. Rewards and operations are currently sponsored by the people we endorse. Currently FMV is our key sponsor and am trying to reel in more people.
3. Cs:GO is indeed popular, but the crypto-integration is relatively new. In addition, this gives them an early taste of our E-sports betting platform and in-game item marketplace. The most important aspect of BTS integration is probably the zero wait time confirmation that will eventually allow gamers to transfer money for their daily activities.

That's good.
You should advertise it clearly then that participation is free but still you can win something. It's an important piece of information for the user.

Yea we are still launching out with the marketing phase.
I asked for the tournie to be pushed further a week so that brands and endorsements can fall in place.
A lot of people are AFK with the holidays here.

We've been solely focusing on gamebet.gg for the past few days. This is metric from 2 days of taking sign ups.
I decided not to move forward with the tournament until we launched 2 key projects (gamebet & gambit) as they use Bitshares heavily and it made no sense to have the tournament until the projects were launched. I'll get back to promoting Bitshares as these pieces fall in place.

We had close to 400 bets being placed in our alpha test mode. I'll share metrics later.

I am excited to look at the numbers from today  as I hadn't done major promotions until yesterday and GA takes 24 hours to update.
Over the course of the week, hopefully we should hit 10-15k views. One of the smart things hybridd did was the live stream of matches and the schedule listings. I think a large number of users use the system for that purpose too. So far, I've had very positive responses from individuals that saw the concept.

Steadily growing through Alpha.
About to announce on Bitcointalk and a series of other avenues.
