On the 6th of January, Original Gamer Life, a blockchain gaming and non-fungible token (NFT) metaverse platform, announced its partnership with XIS, a Brazilian esports organization. The partnership puts OGL in elite company as it becomes the third crypto company to partner with an esports organization after FTX and Crypto.com.
"The partnership between OGL and XIS aligns with our vision of connecting blockchain gaming to a community of 3 billion gamers,"
said OGL CEO Brandon Sivret.
"With XIS changing its name to XIS OG Life, this partnership marks an important milestone for us as we can now take steps to improve the physical, mental, and financial well-being of our community — both in the physical and virtual domains as OGL evolves into the multiverse."
As part of the agreement, the XIS fan token will also be incorporated into the OGL token, allowing gamers to earn OGL whenever they watch livestreams, play games, or sell gaming NFTs on the OGL multiverse platform. The consolidation of tokens enables XIS OG Life to become the pioneer of all things blockchain and gaming.
For Luiz Fontes and Tom Toledo, founders of XIS, this is an important step for the organization.
"We are very happy to announce this partnership. We are one of the first esports organizations in the world to have a partnership of this magnitude with a crypto company (alongside TSM and Fnatic). We will always seek to innovate and give the best to our audience as we pave our way into the metaverse. And OG Life shares our vision of being one step ahead and caring about the physical, mental, financial, and overall well-being of our community."
The new XIS OG Life team backed by 20 million esports fans and influencers will continue to compete in international competitions for Free Fire, Wild Rift and, soon, Fortnite. The XIS OG Life partnership adds another milestone for OGL following its partnerships with titans of the blockchain gaming industry, such as Valor Esports, MilitaryGamers, CryptoTanks, AnRKey X, and Rumble Gaming.
