Streax is an innovative gaming platform. At the heart of the platform are simple but captivating mobile phone games in various genres and settings. The special thing about it is the tournament infrastructure: All games can be quickly transformed into venues for exciting gaming tournaments. The ambitious goal of the makers of Streax is to bring eSports out of the nerd corner and democratise them.
Every gaming enthusiast around the world can potentially become an eSport star and earn money – simply with the smartphone.
eSports are mainly dominated today by complex desktop titles. Flurin Jenal and Qinzhu Xu, both passionate gamers and game developers themselves, want to change that. They have analysed the technology of the major players, duplicated their dynamism, and applied it to the mobile lifestyle. This means that all games can easily be made accessible on the smartphone to allow each owner of a mobile phone to organise gaming tournaments, and distribute the associated prize money among the participants.
With that, every gaming enthusiast around the world can potentially become an eSport star and earn money – simply with the smartphone. On the other hand every influencer, streamer and also every private brand can organise gaming tournaments and turn eSports into a high-performance but accessible tool for marketing and engaging with target groups. To do this, Streax offers the infrastructure, and they just happen to be revolutionising the gaming market in the process.
Streax began in Switzerland, but the concept is to be quickly expanded into western as well as Asian markets. To do this various financing and monetisation options are currently being explored.
