In addition, head of trading Peter Ivanov will broaden his capacities to deal with sports and eSports betting, manage UltraPlay’s in-house team of traders, facilitate the further expansion of its sports betting portfolio and support a US sports dedicated branch.
In related news, presale tokens of just 10 percent of UltraPlay’s newly launched esports betting cryptocurrency eGold were sold out in under 24 hours reaching the targeted hard cap before the February 8 deadline and raising $500,000.
“This is a solid proof of the huge potential that eGold holds for the industry and its members. We can’t wait to start the eGold sale which promises to achieve even better results,” Ocharov said.
