Millennial Esports to Establish New Blockchain Division

Unit will focus on the creation and implementation of blockchain-based game and digital content tokens

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 7, 2017) - Millennial Esports Corp. (TSX VENTURE:GAME) is excited to announce the formation of a new division focused on the creation and implementation of blockchain based 'in game and cross platform' game and digital content tokens. The company is currently exploring various synergies in implementing blockchain-based applications and protocols to enhance the community and user experience.

Millennial Esports has been targeting experienced professionals in the space to help design, create and develop what the company believes will be innovative tokenization functionality within the Esports ecosystem.

"In my 25 years in the gaming and entertainment space, I have never seen such a potentially disruptive and paradigm changing technology like blockchain. If 'content is king' then blockchain is the 'queen' that wields the real power," said Millennial Esports CEO, Alex Igelman, who was been following the business of blockchain for several years. "Our company is now poised to enter this space and is focused on successfully integrating the new division with our existing assets in order to maximize shareholder value."

The company is engaging with a seasoned team, including blockchain experts and in house developers, to assist us with this endeavour and the subsequent token generation strategy, which will help deliver this opportunity to our users, shareholders, and the overall Esports and blockchain communities.
