Splyce, a North American esports organization that has fielded teams in Halo, CoD, LoL, WoW, Rocket League, Smite, Paladins, Starcraft and Hearthstone, revealed on Friday that it has partnered with Globatalent, a marketplace that allows people all over the world to fund and trade in their favorite athletes, clubs and sports idols.

While little was initially revealed about the arrangement, Paulo Senra, the VP of content and communications at Splyce’s parent company, OverActive Media Group, told us in an email that the partnership will bring Globatalent’s logo to Splyce’s Call of Duty, Smite, Starcraft and Rocket League team jerseys.
Senra also indicated that GlobaTalent is providing OverActive Media, which recently acquired the rights to a new Overwatch League team in Toronto, with social amplification and access to their ERC-20 token, GBT. Globatalent’s website states that teams can obtain ﬁnance in exchange for a percentage of their ticketing and sponsorship rights, all secured with blockchain technology for transparency sake.
“Splyce will become official supporters and join a long list of famous athletes, clubs and events that have pledged their belief into the Globatalent project,” reads Globatalent’s website. “Splyce are a tier 1 eSports organization who boast a roster of some of the world’s greatest gamers from the USA, Great Britain and South Korea.”
This news comes a little over a week after Fnatic, a major London-based esports organization, partnered with World Asset eXchange (WAX) to release collectibles and merchandise using WAX’s blockchain e-commerce platform.
