Collaboration between a gaming and leisure brand and a well-known bitcoin trading platform.
Quadrant, one of Europe's most successful Halo rosters, has announced a collaboration with Gate.io, one of the top ten cryptocurrency exchanges in the world.
Since its inception in 2013, Gate.io has established itself as a top cryptocurrency exchange, offering consumers the broadest variety of services and the most traded assets of any significant exchange, with over 1,300 tradable assets and over 10 million users globally.
Quadrant has had exceptional growth since entering competitive esports in late 2021, with an emphasis on delighting fans and establishing one of the largest communities via gaming, content, and esports.
Quadrant stepped up its game in the esports industry at the end of 2021, recruiting its first competitive roster. Last December, the gaming and lifestyle company announced the signing of a top-tier roster of French powerhouses, including Tchik, SLG, Fragxr, and Shad, to play in the Halo Championship Series 2021: Kickoff Major in Raleigh, North Carolina.
This year's Halo season continues with majors in Kansas later this month, the Valencia EU Regional in July, and Orlando in September, before concluding with the Halo World Championship 2022 tournament in Seattle (20-23 October).
Gate.io will get access to what is rapidly becoming one of the world's most recognizable gaming and content organizations as an Official Crypto Partner, while Quadrant will benefit from Gate.io's world-class products and service.
Jamie MacLaurin, Chief Sporting Officer at Quadrant, said: “We’re excited to welcome Gate.io to the squad. This partnership will help our competitive Halo esports roster to continue breaking new ground and will aid us in our pursuit of success both regionally and on the international stage.
“Gate.io has joined our team in the runup to the HCS Major in Kansas City this weekend, and we will be proud to have their branding on our new look jerseys during the event and for the remainder of our season.”
Mariela Tanchez, Head of Business Development at Gate.io, added: “We are delighted to be partnering with Quadrant – a true leader in the world of esports and beyond. The huge growth in esports is there for all to see and, like blockchain, it exemplifies the connection between technology and life. Both industries share a similar ethos, and in the future, I am sure we will see the two industries working even closer together in their respective arenas.”
