January 18, 2023 – ESPL, a global integrated provider of esports platforms and tournaments for gaming communities, officially launched its utility token, ARENA, in collaboration with PancakeSwap via an IFO on January 16, 2023.

The total amount raised reached $1.4 million, with more than $3.6 million in PancakeSwap (CAKE) committed during a 2-hour launch on January 16, 2023. Thirty-five million ARENA utility tokens were made available for $0.04 per token during the IFO.



ESPL’s Arena is the first host-to-earn esports platform that aims to enable the esports industry to embrace Web3 technology and business models. The recently launched utility feature will ease the complexity of running esports tournaments online and provide a secure and transparent method of prize disbursement for the platform’s 280,000+ esports athletes.

The utility token was launched alongside Arena’s UGT solution, resulting in a more efficient tournament system that leverages Web3 and blockchain technology. The UGT platform will fuel ESPL Arena’s robust esports ecosystem with next-generation host-to-win capabilities, giving tournament organizers access to a powerful new economic model for player engagement and community building. The ARENA utility token is available on PancakeSwap.

Commenting on the success of ARENA’s IFO, ESPL General Manager Ivy Fung said:

With ESPL pushing the frontiers of innovation through the decentralization of tournament hosting and the automation of prize distribution (via the ARENA token), I am confident that we will foster a stronger esports player community than ever before.”
