Flames x DXdao

Copenhagen Flames and DXdao enters a one-year partnership, with a focus on fan engagement and exploration of opportunities between esport and DAOs.

Co-owner of Copenhagen Flames, Daniel Vorborg added the following to the new partnership:
“We’re very excited to welcome DXdao as our new partner. The opportunities in decentralized platforms are endless, and there are many exciting ways to integrate esport with DAOs. We will together with DXdao explore those options. But while we do so, we will through this partnership focus on educating people on DAOs through fan engagement initiatives and information. DAOs are by definition for and by their members, and we’ve always prided ourselves on transparent and for the fans – that’s why we believe this is a great fit for both parties. Together we will bring more fan involvement to Copenhagen Flames, and bring us all close together. I’m really excited to get to work with DXdao, and are proud to represent them on our jerseys already at IEM Katowice!” 
Not sure what a DAO is? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with a short explanation! DAO stands for decentralized autonomous organization, which means it’s an organization without a central authority, like a government or a bank. Ultimately that means a DAO is governed by its members, who can make proposals for the DAO and vote on them. And DXdao is a DAO that develops, governs and grows protocols and products with DeFi (Decentralized Finance). You can read more about them here: https://dxdocs.eth.link/ There might be a lot of new terms for you to get familiar with here, but don’t worry! Throughout the year, we’ll help you learn more about the opportunities of a DAO!
From DXdao’s side, they’re excited to venture into esports:

“Esports’ popularity has exploded in recent years with major tournaments regularly attracting millions of fans. They present new opportunities to engage fans and build a community, particularly with digital tools and a young, tech-savvy community.

DAOs are still in their infancy, but face adoption challenges outside of a core technical community. Online groups have begun to form around collective goals and using on-chain governance and DAO-tools to reach them, whether it be buying digital art, the Constitution, or supporting social causes. There are even some efforts ongoing for a DAO to purchase an NBA team.

Esports represent the next logical step and opportunity to experiment with decentralized governance with a community that is already united around a collective goal.

CPH Flames already produce and distribute content to their engaged fanbase. As part of the partnership, CPH Flames will create educational DAO content as well as general web3 knowledge sharing. 

DXdao’s sponsorship of Copenhagen Flames marks a new milestone and begins the era of fan ownership of esports.”
