Ignite Tournaments Raises $10 million To Create Mobile P2E Esports Platform

Backed by Animoca Brands

Play-to-earn esports organiser Ignite Tournaments has raised $10 million to create a mobile play-to-earn esports tournament and streaming platform.

The total investment comes from a seed round in December 2021 that raised $3 million, followed by a strategic funding round in February 2022 that raised the remaining $7 million.

The most recent funding round was co-led by blockchain-focused VC Animoca Brands, Infinity Ventures Crypto, and Moon Holdings Fund.

With the funding, Ignite will use the funding to build upon the firm’s operations and infrastructure. The company has claimed that it can transform any mobile game into a play-to-earn title and will use its tournaments to see this through.
