Misfits’ $10 million gaming incubator MSF/IO will be repurposed to become the MSF Tezos Gaming Incubator. It will help identify and support gaming and esports startups and ones building directly on Tezos, which is highly secure and energy efficient.  

Vas Roberts of EVP Partnerships, Misfits Gaming Group commented:

Gaming can do a lot better, and blockchain technologies will help get us there. By building new practices upon a decentralized, indexed platform, we’ll reimagine how we work with our community, peers, and partners. Tezos will help us share new levels of access, equity, and decision-making. We’re thrilled to pioneer how blockchain can help gaming organizations redefine how they operate.

Mason Edwards, Chief of Staff of Tezos Foundation added:

At such an exciting time for the broader gaming and esports industries, Misfits Gaming Group’s choice of Tezos as its official blockchain adds to the momentum that is growing for blockchain gaming— with community building and player engagement as a priority. I believe that Tezos’ sustainability and its unique ability to adapt to rapidly-evolving technology is perfectly aligned to support MGG’s laudable goals.

Tezos is one of the world’s leading blockchains, recognized for its self-upgradable mechanism, energy-efficient design, and low transaction fees. Its pioneering Proof of Stake protocol makes it highly secure as an open platform.
