The current situation in eSports.

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.

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.

Challenges that need to be solved.

The current situation of the eSports industry reveals the following challenges that need to be solved.

Player compensation

Players invest a lot of time and energy in training and competitive games but have no financial safety.

Organizers and Teams

Insufficient financial compensation for event & tournament organizers, teams and leagues Inhibiting the growth of eSports.

Service providers

Service providers cannot be rewarded in a fair and easy way for their work – some even volunteer their work.

Sponsors and Fans

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.

These issues need to be addressed.

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.

Introducing the eByte project

Global Cryptocurrency for the eSports Community.

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.

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.

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 digital sports will get way closer to real world sports thanks to the eByte cryptocoin and its decentralized eSports platform.

A huge community is backing the project.

Along with service providers of all kinds, our eSports community includes leagues, teams and players - over 45,000 people in total - and this number is growing rapidly.

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. These ERC20 tokens are being exchanged to the at that time created eByte cryptocoins (1:1 coin swap) at blockchain release and 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.

On our website, we will offer a public pre-sale phase. Here, participation starts with a minimum of 500 USD. The public pre-sale is limited to 280,000 eBytes with a bonus of 30%. The crowdsale will take place in three bonus tranches, 20%, 10%, and at the end, 0% bonus on purchases. Here, participation starts with a minimum of 0.1 ETH.

Tokens will be received at the end of the public pre sale and at the end of the crowdsale. Unsold token will go into a separate budget of the foundation and will only be used to support and sponsor the eSport community.

eByte is a blockchain-based, decentralized eSports platform. The main objective of the eByte project is to create an internationally accepted and widely used monetary system for eSports, to ensure participating leagues, teams and players can be fairly compensated for their commitment and achievements while preserving the decentralized nature of digital sports.

To achieve this goal, we are creating various platforms and portals, including a system of smart contracts, an online marketplace where service providers can exchange their services for eBytes, and an idea portal where enthusiasts can generate funding and support for innovative projects.
The popularity of digital sports is increasing quickly. The revenue of eSports grew 51.7% from $325 million to $493 million from 2015 to 2016, and reached nearly $700 million in 2017. By establishing a monetary system with smart contracts, all eSport participants (players, teams, leagues) can be compensated in a trustworthy, transparent and secure way using our blockchain technology.
The eByte project consists of an interdisciplinary team of more than 10 people with long experience in web and software development, marketing and project management. All team members are eSports enthusiasts and dedicated oneself to open the eSport sector to a larger audience.
