Blockchain esports platform, FirstBlood, has really been stirring things up lately in the Dota 2 scene. Earlier this year, they partnered with the China University Esports League to bring their technology and platform to thousands of collegiate players and teams. Last Tuesday, 7 November, they launched Blood in the Streets Americas, their second BITS tournament. Eight teams are still battling it out for their share of the $10 thousand prize pool.
In an exclusive leak to n3rdabl3, sources at FirstBlood have informed us that they have another tournament coming up very soon.
Dota 2 Tournament Week will feature an open-bracket format that anyone can join. It will be 5v5 format over a span of eight days, where amateur teams can compete for cash prizes ranging from $5 to $1,500. We’ve been told that FirstBlood has a brand new feature with new technology that they’re going to weave into their current platform, making it stronger than ever. Dota 2 Tournament Week will be the first big step for this new tech. Look for an official announcement at some point during the BITS tournament this weekend.
FirstBlood has been growing fast over the last year, and there’s plenty more on the horizon, according to sources. Keep your eyes and ears open!
