We partner up with Zilliqa — let's make the "what if" real
What if we said that we’ve partnered with Zilliqa — the leading high-performance, high-security blockchain — for the next five years? What if we said that this partnership was going to focus on creating state-of-the-art tokenized virtual experiences for all of you fans? Awesome, right.
Look at that video again, and let your imagination take over — we are partnering up to deliver the best virtual and digital experiences possible. Zilliqa is well-established as a top blockchain which offers superior scalability and security to its users. Its protocol effectively mines only one minute every two hours, meaning there’s only a marginal environmental cost to mining as compared to other leading blockchains.
They are also working damn close to NIP's purpose — creating transformational experiences that entertain, inspire, foster, and connect fans all over the world.
“We spent most of 2021 rebranding, executing a global expansion and scaling the organization, and now we’re now turning our heads towards NIP’s next major phase. We can't deny the incredible convergence of crypto with esports, the technology will elevate our industry and take us to the next level of gaming and entertainment. We’re laser-focused on creating even more relevance in the community and building new digital products that seek to elevate the fan and gamer experience. That’s why we are ecstatic to partner up with Zilliqa — they share the same vision of innovating immersive experiences that goes beyond what’s available for today’s fans,” said our CEO, Hicham Chahine.
Beyond digital and virtual experiences, fans can expect to see Zilliqa branding on our jerseys starting with the Major in Stockholm.
Says Matt Dyer, Head of Growth at Zilliqa: “The physical and digital worlds are merging, and it has left no one behind. Esports is a great example of this. Over the past year, aficionados looking for new means of engagement realised how esports could be enjoyed as a remote social experience with peers. Crypto joined in, adding immersive, play-to-earn components to this world. Zilliqa didn't miss a beat and has been amping up our efforts to revolutionise the creator economy. Now that we have the opportunity to make our mark with gaming legends Ninjas in Pyjamas, we have no doubt that this collaboration will bring new people and more adoption into the cryptoverse. With their team having graciously accepted ZIL-based support as part of this long-term partnership, we are humbled to be working with people who have faith in the future of Zilliqa.”
