Esports wagering products provider Esports Technologies has joined the Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC).
As a result, the two parties will join forces in a bid to eradicate match-fixing and corrupt betting patterns in esports.
Founded in 2020, Esports Technologies specialises in creating wagering products for esports fans and bettors.
The company operates Gogawi, an online bookmaker that offers markets on a number of esports and sporting events. In June, the company hired Mark Thorne as its new Chief Marketing Officer.
Bart Barden, COO of Esports Technologies, commented on joining the commission in a release: “We are committed to working closely with ESIC to safeguard the integrity of esports and esports betting.
“As esports continues to rise in popularity, our coalition will work to build fan and bettor trust in esports tournaments. When the public has trust and confidence in the esports industry, every stakeholder wins.”
In order to upscale its efforts to prevent corrupt esports gambling activity from taking place, ESIC has seen the likes of Oddin and Ultimate Tournament join as anti-corruption supporters. In January, the commission issued 35 penalties on individuals guilty of betting-related infractions involving ESEA CS:GO matches.
Ian Smith, Commissioner of ESIC, also spoke on the news: “We are delighted to welcome Esports Technologies as an anti-corruption supporter of ESIC. Our anti-corruption supporters play an important role in our mission to deter cheating and fraudulent activity within esports betting.
“By joining ESIC, Esports Technologies has displayed its commitment to maintaining the integrity of esports.”
Esports Insider says: Corruption has no place within esports so it’s great to see Esports Technologies join ESIC as another anti-corruption partner.
