MOSCOW, 18 Jul — RIA Novosti, Natalia Dembinski. The volume of the world industry of eSports, according to forecasts of the research, SuperData, by the end of 2017 will exceed $ 1 billion, today it is about 900 million. The Russian segment stood at 35.4 million dollars, is one of the highest rates of investment in this sector in Europe. And spectators of e-sports almost as much as the National hockey League. About who and how invests in eSports and real people who have extra money, earn fast-growing industry — in the material RIA Novosti.

Millionaires in the collection
Trying not to miss the emerging market, investments in eSports scored all sharks of business and investor heavyweights such as Warren Buffett, Jeff Bezos, Alisher Usmanov, Yuri Milner and others involved in the Forbes list.

Buffett, for instance, sent last year more than six million dollars to a large slot tournaments. And the owner Group Alisher Usmanov has invested $ 100 million in the holding ESForce, which owns one of the most successful eSports teams in the world,

«Let’s say there are 5 people who play «DotA» and start to win some tournaments. But as soon as they come to a certain level, you need to pay for travel, house training, updating of Park of computers», — says Yaroslav Lumps, CEO of eSports gaming club Gamer Stadium. Therefore, given the high cost of gaming equipment (the cost of a «normal» computer for the competition — 100-150 thousand rubles) a barter scheme is very popular.

Live players largely through donations — donations of the many spectators.

One of the reasons for the lack of cash — poor marketing teams. They are not yet able to sign sponsorship contracts and earn. «Very few people, especially in Russia, knows how to get the advertising budget. The industry desperately lacks competent marketing specialists», — says the expert.»The yield of such a syndicate may be on the order of 500% per year,» said an investor at cyber IT projects, business angel Alexander Claudins. However, despite the fact that a check transaction can be low, access to syndicated transactions may be given to investors with an annual income of about 200 thousand dollars.
Buying tokens via ICO

A more realistic way for a private investor with an average income to become a co-owner of high-tech project in the field of eSports, it’s ICO (Initial Coin Offering), the principle of which is similar to an IPO. The difference here is that with the ICO investor does not receive these shares, and becomes the owner of the cryptographic tokens that are traded on cryptomeria for various crypto-currencies like bitcoins or esters (Etherium).© Fotolia / ргіма91Электронная currency bitcoinBets, money, ICO: is it possible to make money on eSports© Fotolia / ргіма91Электронная currency bitcoin

«If the project goes to ICO, it is important that the token was tied to shares and to the turnover of the company, and such projects are scarce. If the token is not tied to the stock, do not need to climb, you’ll lose money» — recommends the investor.

When ICO investments in projects of each of the investors may be small 10 and $ 20. The main thing to remember is that this high-risk investment and the Golden rule of any investment: to invest in anything you can not more than 5% of their annual income.

In General, to capitalize on the market, which is still in its infancy, very difficult. Successful cases not so much, if this is not the bets without roulette sites that are in the grey box. According to observers, «the people’s» money, the market will need at least years five to ten. The market needs to form, and now he is about at that stage, what was the social network when mark Zuckerberg had launched Facebook your. But to follow the development of eSports is better to start now.
