Unikrn now trading skins for tokens in ICO

Esports betting operator Unikrn has announced a major development to its utility token, UnikoinGold.

The latest development now allows users to use an engine that converts CSGO “skins” into UnikoinGold tokens.

The token sale opened on September 23, and is already the most successful token sale in esports with over $27 million worth of tokens sold. The public sale followed UnikoinGold’s blockbuster pre-sale with accredited investors, which included notable investors Mark Cuban, Brock Pierce, Blockchain Capital, Pantera Capital, Draper Dragon and CoinCircle.

Developed as an ERC-20 utility token, UnikoinGold will be used on Unikrn’s improved skill and live spectator betting platforms.

“Our vision for UnikoinGold is to make it the universal esports and gaming token by continuing to add both wagering and non-wagering features to the Unikrn platform that our community has requested,” said Rahul Sood, CEO of Unikrn. “We see a future where UnikoinGold is in the hands of millions gamers and esports fans, ushering in incredible opportunities to use UnikoinGold inside and outside of Unikrn’s own properties.”

Unikrn also recently announced the addition of Ethereum co-founder and JAXX Wallet CEO Anthony Di lorio to the Unikrn Board of Advisors. For the design, engineering, and sale of its UnikoinGold token, Unikrn partnered with CoinCircle — which powers token sales for established VC-backed companies.

“Beyond our role in engineering the success of the token sale, as stakeholders we’re thrilled to be a part of the vision and momentum of the UnikoinGold token as the Unikrn team extends its reach and usage deep within the esports and gaming ecosystem,” said Erick Miller, CEO of CoinCircle.
