Bybit has struck a three-year deal with the biggest and the most decorated Russian esports club Virtus.pro, becoming the official cryptocurrency platform and NFT partner for the club.
Two digital leaders will base their partnership on cryptocurrency, gaming, and esports. Standard media activities will be complemented by classic partnership options, such as featuring the logo on player’s jerseys and banners in Bearloga app, branding player’s and club’s social media channels.
Our new partners are putting greater emphasis on the technological effectiveness, safety, and competitiveness of crypto trading. That is why Virtus.pro players will also take part in a global crypto trading tournament WSOT 2021 with a $7.5 million prize pool.
Ben Zhou, co-founder and CEO of Bybit:
“We are excited to partner with Virtus.pro as the worlds of esports and crypto converge.

We share a space where performance and creativity is celebrated, and it’s about time we connected.”
Sergey Glamazda, CEO of Virtus.pro:
“Both digital financial assets and esports are relatively new industries. Despite their fast growth and the fact that everyone is talking about it, a lot of people may still find it complicated and not easy to understand. That is where our goals with Bybit are aligned: we are constantly improving and trying to make what we do best as simple as possible to understand for the audience. We are delighted to have Bybit joining esports with their large-scale projects and proud to be their partners in Russia!”
