“We have a dream with UGG, we wanted to be able to give back to the community. We want to help the players who play games on a casual daily basis be able to earn and benefit from their happiness and passion for being a gamer.
We also want to help educate that community on how you can find other play-to-earn games and what play-to-earn games they should be playing, and at the same time, support that community with an esports infrastructure like tournaments and events for the entire community.
To the entire gaming community this is the start! Look out for more events to come! This is the first step to the future of gaming!”
