Through the sponsorship to this year’s Chinajoy, we have renewed our awareness that we can make the most of our investment in the Chinese e-Sport market to help grow SPINDLE.
In 2018, the e-Sports market is expected to grow more than twice than last year’s market size to more than 1.5 billion dollars, and we have been convinced that the penetration of SPINDLE into e-Sports markets will have positive impact on future SPD growth.
SPINDLE will continue to invest in Chinese markets and e-Sports markets.The project SPINDLE joined BIAS (Blockchain Industry Alliance Shanghai) on June 4. Following the opening of its Shanghai office and participation to Blockchain conferences and sponsorship to Chinajoy, it will seek to further expand its business in China in order to further raise awareness of the project SPINDLE in China and expand its market.
