Metaverse: A gaming and eSports ETF worth looking at

Published

on

Virtual reality and the metaverse will play an increasingly important role in users’ lives. These new worlds are well-represented in several ETFs that specialize on video games.

The S&P 500 reached a fresh all-time high on Friday. The new Omicron variety frightened the entire market a few weeks earlier, and investors rushed to safer assets.

The gaming sector is one of the industries with the least impact by Covid-19. Because of the emergence of mobile games, this business has risen quickly in recent years. Monetization strategies become more clear and new technologies such as virtual reality and the metaverse become more prevalent. Thus, a plethora of opportunities emerge. The VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF is one of the most popular ETFs in this category.

The VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF, according to VanEck, aims to replicate the price and yield performance of the MVIS Global Video Gaming and eSports Index (MVESPOTR), which aims to track the overall performance of companies involved in video game development, esports, and related hardware and software as closely as possible, before fees and expenses.

Main holdings.

The ETF includes Nvidia and Advanced Micro Devices. Both companies make semiconductors for the gaming industry. Investors will profit from the need for these transistors in other areas, such as the automobile industry, because Nvidia is well-known for its graphics expertise.

Tencent and Nintendo, both of which trade on overseas exchanges and market games and in-game purchases, are also in the ETF. Tencent owns 40% of Epic Games, the creators of the popular game Fortnite, and has a track record of effectively monetizing games in China. Nintendo owns several key brands, including Mario and Pokemon, and has a very popular console around the world.

Other factors, aside from monetization, include the expansion of e-sports and the ability to play across platforms. As well as, of course, the metaverse. While it is still a long way off, it has a lot of promise because it amplifies the other triggers.

Imperial: Operation Rio, an e-sport inspired game

Published

on

Electronic gaming tournaments were first organized as esports, and as they quickly gained popularity, they were transformed into a multi-million dollar industry. Every great club has a great sponsor, therefore in 2022 Imperial Esports collaborated with partners like Sportsbet.io and Gamdom.com to make a significant move that resulted in the most famous Brazilian CS:GO players.

The project Last Dance, which brought together legendary figures from the Counter-Strike world like Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo, Ricardo “boltz” Prass, Vinicius “VINI” Figueiredo, Lincoln “fnx” Lau, and Fernando “fer” Alvarenga, took place in Imperial this year. This marked a turning point for the community, which was thrilled at the prospect of watching world champions compete together once more. Currently, Marcelo “chelo” Cespedes, a player who joined as a reinforcement after Fnx transitioned to a coaching post, is a member of the squad.

The three organizations agreed to release a game with a CS:GO theme that was inspired by the team because of the project’s success and high level of publicity. That’s where Caleta Gaming, a Brazilian company that already collaborated with Sportsbet.io and Gamdom.com, comes in. Caleta Gaming is a creator and producer of online games. The game was created by Caleta’s staff, which collaborated with both businesses to make it available on its iGaming platform.

“Joining forces with electronic game heavyweights like Sportsbet.io, Gamdom.com, and Imperial is looking to attract discerning and savvy players,’ stated Junior Gonçalves, Product Leader at Caleta Gaming. These are the characteristics that Imperial incorporates into its style of play.”

Imperial: One of the top eSports teams in the world created Operation Rio for the general audience

Imperial: Operation Rio is a high-volatility slots game with a maximum payout of 15000 times the total bet that was created specifically for the squad and was inspired by CS:GO. Fans of Counter Strike are familiar with the game’s bonus feature, which awards players based on their decision about which boxes to open and distributes prizes in accordance with the team emblem or signature that is chosen.

According to Felippe Martins, CEO of Imperial Esports, “We are making history by developing the first exclusive and genuinely thematic game for an eSports company that we are aware of.”

Justin Le Brocque, Head of Marketing at Sportsbet.io, stated, “With the launch of the Imperial: Operation Rio slot, we pushed our cooperation with Imperial to another level, delivering a unique entertainment experience for our users. In addition, co-founder of Gamdom.com Felix R. stated, “Innovation is a Gamdom differential and we illustrate it with this new game.
