Ethereum is fast becoming the epitome of culture. TikTok, Twitter, Playboy magazine and now the nostalgic teen favorite Counter Strike! They are all rushing to capitalize on the latest NFT trend. ESL Labs – the world’s largest esports organization announced on Oct 28 that it plans to launch a “next generation NFT collectibles platform” on Ethereum’s Layer 2 solution Immutable X for Counter Strike Global Offensive (GO) fans.
According to the official source “The ESL NFT platform, in partnership with Immutable X, will enable esports and Counter-Strike enthusiasts around the world to be able to buy, sell, and exchange NFT assets within the ESL Pro Tour“. However, this won’t be Counter Strike parent ESL first foray into the NFT world. It previously launched the IEM Cologne POG Collection on OpenSea in this year’s August!
This is encouraging news as it shows that NFTs are here to stay and are fast gaining cultural approval. It’s understandable that other major game developers are going to follow in ESL’s path and likely to incorporate some form of NFTs / shared game items in the future, to stay relevant in the fast changing landscape. This is the way.
About Counter Strike
Counter-Strike (CS) is a series of multiplayer first-person shooter video games in which teams of terrorists battle to perpetrate an act of terror (bombing, hostage-taking, assassination) while counter-terrorists try to prevent it (bomb defusal, hostage rescue). The series began on Windows in 1999 with the release of the first game, Counter-Strike.
