Sports Tech Live

All your Sports Tech news in one place, covering topics like AR/VR, Data Analytics, eSports, Live Streaming, Sports Betting, Wearables, etc.

Hey Sports Tech Fans,
Apologies for going off schedule for the past couple of weeks, we are approaching demo day here at Techstars web3 accelerator program.
I will be presenting tomorrow in Dublin, live on stage, and would love to have this community tune in.
There are live stream tickets available here:
The event starts at 5.30pm Irish time with the first 3 pitches being the gaming, sports and metaverse companies; MegaFans, LiveDuel and BigFan.
These are the companies’ podcasts that I shared a number of weeks back so are most interesting to this community.
I will be second on stage to pitch LiveDuel.com.
LiveDuel is a DeFi-powered prediction market for sports & esports. In traditional gaming the house always wins because they include transaction fees of up to 40%.
By decentralising the house model we can offer sports fans a fairer price with just 4% fees. To replace the house, liquidity providers stake their funds to earn up to 3% yield per transaction.
We will soon be launching our private alpha, so to be included in the white list for access you can register your email at https://liveduel.com/
Normal service will resume next week once my life is back to normal.
Have a great sporting week and for our US readers, have a great 4th of July weekend.
Will
