Bayes Esports has set the stage for a more sustainable future for the esports industry with the launch of a new partnership program that will focus largely on integrity.
The Bayes Esports Partnership Program will aim to provide the esports data supplier’s partners with more visibility whilst also seeking to develop “new and innovative platforms with the integrity of esports competitions and esports betting in mind”.
By working together with its partners – which includes service providers using official data such as Abios, BETER, Pinnacle and Sportsflare, as well as official data partners including ESL Gaming and Riot Games – Bayes Esports is confident that it can effectively combat unofficial data offerings and the scraping of data.
This collaborative approach to create tools that can ensure the integrity of esports competitions and betting activity, Bayes Esports explained, will be beneficial for its partners but also for the wider industry too.
Martin Dachselt, CEO and Managing Director of Bayes Esports, noted: “BEDEX was a breakthrough in the esports data market, allowing data providers and data consumers to both profit from official live match data. However, we do also recognise that our work is far from done.
“There are still so many players within the industry that are unaware of the danger and disadvantages that unofficial data offerings entail. Together with our partners, we will continue to educate the industry and fight for the integrity of esports.
“We are delighted to be able to work with some of the most important players in the industry and will continue to make leaps towards an esports future, which is sustainable and profitable for everyone involved.”
Upon announcing its plans, Bayes Esports explained that while scraped live data is still widely used within the industry, it has been the “ever growing partnerships built around official live data that have actively contributed to the development of esports as a whole”.
