Virtue Poker Announces Celebrity Charity Poker Tournament with Paul Pierce

NBA legend Paul Pierce headlines a sizable charity event that can prove beneficial for all parties involved in the process.

Cryptocurrency and blockchain projects need to expand their reach and appeal whenever possible. Virtue Poker is doing exactly that through a celebrity poker charity tournament. 

A Bold Move by Virtue Poker

Twitch is a well-respected platform in the gaming community, even though it can serve many other purposes as well. Slowly but surely, the cryptocurrency industry is making its way to this platform for a variety of reasons.

A celebrity poker tournament involving a provably fair platform on the blockchain can find a good home on this streaming platform as well.

Virtue Poker, incubated by ConsenSys, will host its tournament in early June 2021. A total of twelve participants will participate in this event, including Hall of famer Paul Pierce, Hall of famer Phil Ivey, ConsenSys founder Joe Lubin, Etherenity CEO Nick Rose, Ran Neuner, and others.

During the event, all games will be played under no-limit Texas Hold’em rules. Two starting tables will be set up with three players from each advancing to the final stage.

The event winner will choose the charity to which proceeds from this event will be distributed.

The IDO + Twitch Combo

Twitch will broadcast the charity poker event by Virtue Poker through its main channel. Additionally, viewers can switch to private channels hosted by the players themselves.

Giving viewers many angles to choose from or supporting their favorite participants is essential during celebrity poker charity tournaments like these. 

This upcoming event marks a crucial milestone for Virtue Poker. After completing a $5 million investment round in April, Virtue Poker is preparing its Initial Dex Offering (IDO) on the SuperStarter launchpad on Friday, May 28.

The team aims to expand its reach beyond poker and into the world of Non-Fungible Tokens. They will give away several of these NFTs during the charity tournament on Twitch.

Closing Thoughts

Virtue Poker was initially founded in 2016 as a decentralized peer-to-peer poker platform on the Ethereum blockchain. Five years later, it is still one of the most prominent poker platforms on the market today.

With its ongoing growth and expansion into different industry segments, Virtue Poker continues pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved.

Moreover, the exposure to be gained from streaming the charity event on Twitch will bring a lot of exposure to this poker platform.

All of the above is good news for the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry. Twitch is a platform most people associate with video games, but it also gains popularity for real-world events and tournaments of all kinds.

A charity event on this scale can prove beneficial for all parties involved in the process.
