The Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC) has entered into a new anti-corruption education partnership with esports betting operator GG.bet.
As part of the agreement, GG.bet will support ESIC in the development of its anti-corruption tutorial, which aims to educate players and stakeholders about ethical behavior in the esports industry.
GG.bet will also undertake the appointment as a Tier 1 Anti-Corruption Supporter, which ESIC said would strengthen the operator’s commitment to creating a fair and safe environment for players and stakeholders.
“In recent years, GG.bet has invested significant efforts in the development of e-sports,” said Dmytro Voshkarin, CEO of GG.bet. “We have worked closely with the teams and recognized the importance of creating a safe and fair environment to ensure healthy competition in esports.
“We are pleased to collaborate with ESIC, a partner with whom we share a common passion for bringing integrity to esports, and we believe this tutorial will be helpful in achieving this goal.”
Stephen Hanna, director of global strategy and partnerships at ESIC, added: “Partnerships like this with GG.bet are critical to our mission to promote integrity and prevent corruption in esports.”
“We are grateful for their support and look forward to working together over the next three years to create a stronger and safer esports industry for everyone.”
The deal comes after ESIC this week announced its first-ever “anti-cheat partnership” with global gaming protection and anti-piracy technology provider Denuvo by Irdeto.
Denuvo and ESIC will collaborate to develop a framework to implement anti-cheat technology in the esports industry.
