by Juandi

Fintech platform Cake DeFi is partnering with FACEIT to host weekly free-to-enter tournaments both in APAC and India, beginning on July 24 and ending on September 11, featuring a total prize pool of more than $9,000 in crypto prizes.

The Cake DeFi Weekly Crypto Tournament, featuring a total prize pool of more than $9,000, will start its inaugural week on July 24 with $695 in DFI cryptocurrency up for grabs. The partnership between these two giant companies saw yet another investment made to strengthen and elevate the Asian CS:GO scene, where they will routinely organize weekly and bi-weekly tournaments throughout the entire Q3 of 2022. 

“Gamers have a natural affinity with crypto, and they can now join us on the DeFi movement. Cake DeFi’s partnership with FACEIT will allow players to earn crypto while they game, and further earn returns on their crypto through our platform. In 2021, we paid out $230 million in rewards to our customers. So it’s a win-win-win for FACEIT gamers,” said Julian Hosp, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Cake DeFi.

Cake DeFi, a Singapore-based crypto fintech platform, is a fully transparent, highly innovative, and regulated fintech platform dedicated to providing access to decentralized financial services and applications by enabling users to generate returns from their crypto and digital assets. 

FACEIT and Cake DeFi announced in May a multi-million dollar agreement that marks Cake DeFi’s first entry into the gaming and esports market. The company wants to offer players a unique chance to earn actual crypto prizes while doing their favorite thing: playing. 

Furthermore, through Cake DeFi’s platform and access to decentralized finance applications, players can compound their winnings and earn returns on their crypto. The brand will be hosting weekly tournaments on FACEIT for over a year and distributing a total of $500,000 in crypto across all major regions, including APAC, India, Europe, CIS, and North America.
