eSports is a big market – a global business, generating hundreds of millions of dollars every year. Despite the amazing market potential and growth eSports currently lacks in possibilities that are fundamental for its future development.
Even though the participation in eSports and its income are rising quickly, very few well known professional players are well paid. Most players receive little or nothing for their achievements and their commitment.
eByte combines two of the most growing markets to establish the global eSports infrastucture of the future - made in Germany.
As a relatively young and booming industry, eSports lives from the enthusiasm of its community but has a clear need for professional market structures that ensure secure, easy and transparent contracts between all parties.
In the eSports market, most of the available financial growth potential is unused. With eSports and Blockchain eByte connects two of the most growing markets and supportings blockchain acceptance of the mainstream.
The current situation of the eSports industry reveals the following challenges that need to be solved.
Players invest a lot of time and energy in training and competitive games but have no financial safety.
Insufficient financial compensation for event & tournament organizers, teams and leagues Inhibiting the growth of eSports.
Service providers cannot be rewarded in a fair and easy way for their work – some even volunteer their work.
eSports sponsors and fans have to use slow fiat money to support their favorite players, teams and leagues.
Investment decisions are very difficult since there are no uniform portals for secure participations in eSports.
The eByte cryptocoin is a modern compensation system for the eSports community: modern, efficient and easy to use. The project is using a consortium blockchain, developed in cooperation with Draglet, to establish the first international monetary system specifically designed for the eSports community.
Like the Ethereum blockchain, developers will be able to use the eByte blockchain as a third party development platform optimized for gaming projects as well as eSports solutions.
The eByte project also includes a trustworthy contract system for leagues, teams, and players, to ensure all participants and service providers can be rewarded for their achievements in a safe and simple way.
In addition, the new cryptocurrency will enable fans to support their favorite teams and players with donations. And the eByte portals and platforms will give investors and sponsors a complete overview of the eSports market, making it easier for them to participate in the growth of eSports.
Furthermore we will create various platforms and portals to solve the current problems in the eSports community while keeping its decentralized character.
The eByte project uses its own Blockchain technology, to establish an international payment and contract system for the eSports community. The eByte Blockchain will be the main development platform fueling third party eSport applications.

The public pre-ICO was limited to only 280,000 eBytes with a maximum bonus of 30%.
The ICO will take place in three bonus tranches, 20%, 10%, and at the end, 0% bonus on purchases.
The raised funds are managed in escrow by a foundation based in Bonn, Germany.
Developer Team tokens will be held for one year after the ICO.
The eByte project will have a soft cap for contributions during the ICO. If the amount of contributions exceed the soft cap we will be able to push the project forward and setup the Testnet of the eByte Blockchain. If the amount of contributions doesn't exceed the soft cap, all contributions will be refunded to all contributors.
Tokens will be received at the end of the public pre-ICO and at the end of the ICO.
Due to legal and regulatory in the United States of America all U.S. residents, including accredited investors, are excluded from the eByte Token Generation event.
The following graphics show the distribution of the ERC20 Token amount and the distribution of the raised funds.
With the publication of the eByte blockchain, initially, 10% of the eBytes are generated (pre-mined). As part of our token generation event, certain amounts of pre-mined coins can be purchased in advance as ERC20 eByte tokens.
The ERC-20 token will be swapped 1:1 to a fully functional and tradable eByte coin once the private blockchain goes live. These ERC20 tokens will then automatically be burned. Finally there are 10% eByte cryptocoins issued and 90% (42,300,000) minable.
Only after the needed swap there will be the possibility to use the eByte platforms, portals, smart contracts, tools and other applications.
Unsold token of the ICO will go into a separate budget of the foundation and will only be used to support and sponsor the eSport community.
Due to legal and regulatory in the United States of America all U.S. residents, including accredited investors, are excluded from the eByte Token Generation event.
