The market is expected to reach $674.7 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 7%. Fandom Sports is now positioned to enter into this lucrative market as a market participant and technology provider to change the way that data is presented and transacted upon in this multi-hundred-billion-dollar industry.
"After connecting our APIs to the top game publishers, we quickly saw a differentiating advantage emerge relative to our peers in the number of predictions/wagers we could generate, the dynamic statistical system reconciliation, the modular applications of various data presentations, and the deep analytics which we could use for intelligent analysis. Through the course of product demonstrations to 3rd party vendors and industry participants across both Esports and Sports wagering, the conversation always steered towards the inevitable-How can we apply these capabilities to our business, and can we get a license? I'm proud to say that Fandom Sports is now in the position to be a solutions provider to Esports, Gaming, Sports, and Streaming industries for predictive data capabilities. We are excited to put the cornerstones in place for the long-term success of our business together with our friends and partners at Intellect Dynamics," states David Vinokurov, CEO and President Fandoms Sports Media.
Christian Gravel, CEO of Intellect Dynamics and Chief Strategy Officer ("CSO") of Fandom Sports continues, "This is the first time that Intellect Dynamics has granted an exclusive use industry license for the DatabioniXTM platform. Our experience in health care, facilities management, supply chain logistics, insurance and telecom deployments has shown us the impact that the DatabioniXTM platform has had on mission critical, data intensive and security focused industries. We are eager to make a transformative impact across the industries covered under the terms of this agreement with Fandom Sports. Furthermore, we are thrilled to be able to share and participate in the success of Fandom Sports, both as active management and shareholders of the Company."
"We are fortunate to have Intellect Dynamics as a cornerstone investor and to have all of our long-term interests aligned. Having recently completed installation of our own server infrastructure, securing the IP has been our next critical item of business in advance of the launch of our wagering and all-ages Esports prediction platforms. Most importantly, we can commence development of interfaces that will expand our reach beyond professional Esports to streamed and broadcasted gaming and sports content. I'm very proud to say that Fandom Sports is a unique platform in the industries it operates and will operate in. We're even more excited to deploy the innovative NFT rewards solution that our development team is working on. What you see now is just the tip of the iceberg and we have a robust development pipeline that continues to evolve and grow," continued David Vinokurov.
