Season 2 of BLAST Rising Has New Crypto Partners

Three global partners confirmed for next week’s online Counter-Strike tournament that gives teams a chance to compete for a $30,000 prize pool.

Coinbase, CS.MONEY and Red Magic have been named as partners for next week’s (3-23 May) BLAST Rising – a Counter-Strike tournament that gives teams outside the world’s top 20 rankings a chance to compete for a $30,000 prize pool.

Cryptocurrency exchange platform Coinbase, skin trading platform CS.MONEY and mobile phone Red Magic, which is manufactured by Nubia Technology, will see their branding feature heavily across the three-week Counter-Strike tournament.

The online tournament will feature 24 teams from across 19 countries in Europe competing – translating to three weeks and approximately 150+ hours of esports action for viewers to sink their teeth into. Each partner will receive several bespoke giveaways and integrated promotions within the in-game production and coverage.

For Coinbase and CS.MONEY the partnership is an extension of BLAST Premier’s current sponsorship while Red Magic will be returning for their second event after sponsoring last year’s BLAST Premier Fall Series.

Oliver Clarke, Head of Brand Partnerships for BLAST, said: “We are grateful to our partners in helping us provide opportunities for up-and-coming players and teams across Europe. The expansion of the tournament from 16 to 24 teams and the addition of three leading brands as partners highlight the growth BLAST Rising has enjoyed in the 12 months since it launched. With BLAST Rising returning for a second year after the first event’s success, we’re delighted that Coinbase, CS.MONEY and Red Magic are joining us and building on their association with BLAST Premier.”
