Renowned blockchain-powered poker platform Virtue Poker is looking to deliver yet another win to the crypto-ecosystem thanks to an upcoming poker tournament. The company will be celebrating its recent launch and developments through the poker tournament which is expected to go down sometime in early June. Having been under development for five years, the Phil Ivey-led online poker operation has so much going for it and it is all about to get even better.
Lots to Look Forward To
Virtue Poker did not seem to have much of a problem pushing its upcoming celebrity poker tournament. Backing the venture are some very well-known industry investors including Pantera Capital, ConsenSys, and DFG Group among others, all of whom could further help solidify its credibility. That said, the no-limit Texas Hold’em poker tournament will be a great launchpad for the company’s ambitious plan for the industry.
Already there is a solid lineup of people that are expected to attend. These include celebrities, influencers, and many poker industry leaders. Most notably, Phil Ivey who also happens to be a Poker Hall of Famer will be among the people that will grace the poker tournament. Other notable figures that will be participating in the tournament include the Virtue Poker Pro team, Ethereum Co-Founder Joe Lubin, Founder and CEO of Ethernity Chain Nick Rose, and NBA Hall of Famer Paul Pierce.
“Virtue Poker is excited to take this next step to drive awareness and adoption of the world’s first blockchain-based P2P poker platform. Through our partnership with SuperStarter and our execution of our Celebrity Poker Charity event, Virtue Poker will be able to grow our community’s foundation as well as showcase the platform to a broad audience,” Virtue Poker CEO Ryan Gittleson.
The winner of the planned tournament will get to decide on a charitable organization that will receive the proceeds from the event. Virtue Poker will also issue all of the celebrity participants with NFTs and these will act as bounties of sorts during the tournament.
Where to Catch the Action
For anyone that will be interested in watching all the action that will go down during Virtue Poker’s tournament, look no further. The operator will be broadcasting the even as it unfolds on Twitch. In addition to that, fans of the participants will also be able to watch on the channels of these players.
Crypto giving back to the community is certainly a good thing but this is also bound to mark yet another huge leap for crypto and blockchain as they move towards mainstream adoption.
