A Successful eBoost ICO
“EBoost’s successful crowdsale is a testament to the fact the eSports and cryptocurrencies are a natural fit,” eBoost co-founder Marshall long said in a press release.
After its successful ICO on the Bittrex cryptocurrency exchange, the team told press that the token should become available to trade on the same platform sometime this week.
The token was designed specifically to service the competitive eSports industry, which has amassed a total wealth of $1 billion as gaming enthusiasts flock to competitions to watch professional teams go head to head in popular games.
