The World Cup is here! So is the Future of Blockchain Sports Prediction

Fri Jun 08, 2018 5:33 pm

2018 is a special year for the sports industry, with a series of potentially game-changing announcements and high profile events lined up. Earlier this year, Arsenal FC, one of the prestigious football clubs in the English Premier League, put forward a new operational model incorporating blockchain technology to enhance the online sports gaming experience. The worlds of blockchain and football cross paths for the first time and fans finally see the opportunity for football to break out of the manipulation of the high end of town and return to the embrace of its core values. It is fair to say that blockchain is leading football to the dawn of a new era. On the 14th of May 2018, the US Supreme Court declared the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act 1992 unconstitutional, creating an opening to bring the sports betting industry out of the shadows with legalization. This decision is not only significant to the U.S, but could also have long-term unforeseen opportunities for the global sports industry.

The much-anticipated 2018 FIFA World Cup (the 21st FIFA World Cup) is to be held from the 14th of June to the 15th of July 2018 in Russia. This is the first time the FIFA World Cup kicks off in Russia, and the first return to Europe after the 2016 FIFA World Cup in Germany. A total of 64 matches are scheduled, from which the next winner emerges.


We are once again at the turning point of history, and the budding blockchain-led revolution, which has already started in the realm of digital assets, could leave an impact as profound as that of the industrial revolution. With the promotion and proliferation of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology, many industries are exploring future possibilities with the adoption of the technology, pushing the boundaries and allowing it to percolate through all aspects of our lives. Blockchain technology has been successfully implemented in areas including big data, artificial intelligence and gaming, and is progressing to the maturing stage. Blockchain has received unprecedented support from the market demand and capital investment, but real-world applications in the sports industry are still hard to find. The merger of sports prediction with the innovation of blockchain technology can maximise efficiencies and increase return on investment.

In the traditional form of the industry, sports events and their users are limited by various factors including time, location and political and economic environments, which in turn allows for a multitude of commercial opportunities waiting to be explored. By merging blockchain technology with the sports prediction industry, the consumer demand of real-time participation is ensured by utilising a fully open and transparent system. Supported by a wealth of resources and experience in the gaming industry, UniGame, the next generation of blockchain-based sports prediction platform is set to transform the industry.

The UniGame team, one of the pioneers to introduce blockchain technology into the realm of sports prediction, is dedicated to solve the conundrum once and for all. By incorporating blockchain technology into the platform, all users can be assured that the data is credible and traceable, verifiable and cannot be tampered with, eliminating manipulation behind the scenes.


In this multi-trillion-dollar industry, UniGame has an unparalleled advantage over the competition. With strong partnerships with the IP owners of top global events, experienced team members and gaming licenses in multiple countries; UniGame has taken the foreground of the blockchain-based sports prediction industry, and has laid the groundwork for the launch of its real-world application. Blockchain technology will be incorporated to take the existing global sports prediction platform and its range of exclusive partnerships with top sports events to the next level. This also distinguishes UniGame from other sports prediction blockchain projects who are faced with the challenge of bridging the abyss between conceptual design and the actual implementation in real-life sports events and services.

At the start of April 2018, UniGame established a strategic partnership with Macauslot, the first Asian sports prediction company specialising in soccer and basketball. Established in 1989, Macauslot provides soccer and basketball prediction and gaming services for local and international customers. Macauslot obtained the exclusive gaming licence from the Macau Government for soccer since January 1998 and for basketball since December 2000. This exciting partnership will result in a legal blockchain sports prediction service for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. In addition, both parties are going to provide a sports prediction service through the platform using licences on a range of other games and events. The innovative payment model with UniCoin is also attracting more attention and excitement. UniCoin is not only the main token distributed on UniGame, it will also be widely accepted and circulated across other global gaming and prediction platforms, generating more income through partnerships.

So far, over 50 world renowned gaming service providers accept UniCoin as a currency on their platform. The combination of high-quality partners, a vast consumer base and steady turnover, leads the way for the collaborative creation of innovative business models, which will greatly enrich the products and services provided in the entire ecosystem.


The integrated UniCoin payment system, as an innovation in the blockchain business to business service, is the earliest commercial realization of sports prediction services, traffic monetization and supply chain finance, which has attracted great attention and interest fra om major capital and industry funds.

UniGame is now listed on HitBTC (UNC/BTC and UNC/ETH) and OAX. According to the CEO - Sean Shek, the blockchain-based sports prediction platform that UniGame has built, will rely on its core competitiveness of far reaching resources, transparent data and high reliability, and is a classic case of a successful entry into an emerging market. It will also present to the fans across the globe a brand new augmented experience of celebrating this quadrennial event, as the world eagerly awaits the first blow of the whistle. UniCoin, being the value foundation of UniGame, is going to be an important cross-platform utility token in the sports industry. UniGame looks forward to working collaboratively with global partners to embrace the revolutionary changes in the ecosystem brought about by blockchain technology, and build a prosperous future in which all parties can contribute and benefit.
