Diamond handed Team Secret fans, we are extremely delighted to announce a long term partnership today with Uniswap Labs, an industry leader in blockchain technology that powers Uniswap's decentralized exchange. The crypto space has certainly advanced further into the mainstream in recent years, in many ways parallel to the rise of esports as a sporting and entertainment media category. These similarities, and our unique position in the global digital ecosystem, make this partnership a logical path forward for us at Team Secret, and our friends at Uniswap Labs. Uniswap Labs powering Team Secret is the next Moon Shot!
Uniswap is a decentralized finance protocol that is used to exchange cryptocurrencies and tokens; it is provided on blockchain networks that are decentralized, running open-source software, as opposed to any centralized intermediary. What does that mean??? It means whether you're invested in Elongated Muskrat assets or Doge memes, Uniswap Labs is advancing the tech to help support decentralized transactions -- no need to go through a central exchange like Coinbase or Binance! Why is that something to cheer for? Besides being supported by your favorite esports club, decentralization is also one of the primary benefits of crypto assets in general. Uniswap is totally open source, for the community -- no restrictions, no censorship, no intermediaries, no limitations.
"Uniswap Labs embodies our vision for the future of crypto and blockchain technology. They are truly developing assets that will help advance the digital assets space, and we are proud to be working with the Grants program to bring their impact into gaming and esports. We look forward to working with their team on future launches and accelerating adoption of other Grant projects in the works, and we are even exploring crypto as a company balance sheet asset as we ourselves get more educated through this partnership. Today is truly a momentous day for crypto and esports." -- John Yao, CEO Team Secret
"The Uniswap Grants Program is enormously excited to sponsor Team Secret, one of the world’s leading esports teams. Team Secret and the Uniswap protocol both share a global presence, a digitally-native audience, and a passionate dedication to their respective crafts. More importantly, both parties are radically set on changing the way we think about their respective industries — sports and finance. Indeed, while this is a first-of-its-kind partnership between an eSports team and a Decentralized Autonomous Organization, we expect it will not be the last.” -- Matteo Leibowitz, Strategy Lead Uniswap Labs
The partnership program will focus on Team Secret developing exclusive content and esports activations for the Uniswap protocol, including future technology launches and other projects under the Uniswap Grants program. Crypto technology is poorly understood in the mainstream, and even in digitally native gaming communities. Through Team Secret, Uniswap will be able to reach expansive new audiences, and craft relevant messaging to drive awareness, understanding, and adoption through new and innovative content formats.
