DreamTeam, found online at DreamTeam.gg, is the first eSports and gaming recruitment and management network. Find out how it works today in our review.
What Is DreamTeam?
DreamTeam is an eSports recruitment and management network that currently supports CS:GO. Support for League of Legends, DOTA 2, Overwatch, and others are all coming soon.
Anyone can use DreamTeam to find a team to play with. Teams can also use DreamTeam to find the perfect player to add to their team. The platform has a search engine that allows players to search for teams or players with a specific skill level or role. You can use the platform if you’re an individual player looking for a team, or if you’re a team looking for an individual player.
Right now, DreamTeam functions mostly as a platform allowing CS:GO teams and players to connect with one another. In the future, however, the company plans to release its “Manage” platform that offers the “ultimate tool for team management, coaching, analytics and scouting”.
There’s also an “Earn” platform in development, which will help gamers and advertisers organize sponsorships, media rights sales, prize money, salaries, and player transfers.
All of these services will be built on a blockchain platform. DreamTeam transactions will be performed through smart contracts.
DreamTeam is holding a token sale throughout November 2017, with a secondary crowdsale scheduled for January 2018.
How Does DreamTeam Work?
Using DreamTeam, gamers can find a team that matches their skill level. You can set your desired skill level and role, then find a team that needs a person with that role at that skill level. On CS:GO, the search engine lets you choose a skill level from 1 to 10 (with 1 meaning you just installed the game and 10 meaning that you compete in international tournaments). You can also choose sniper, assault, or support as your role.
On the other side of things, teams can find players using the same factors. You input your desired rank and role, then find players who would be a perfect fit for your team.
Overall, DreamTeam promises to be the easiest way to find players, teams, coaches, tournaments, and practice games.
In the future, DreamTeam also plans to release a management platform that will be the “ultimate tool for team management, coaching, analytics and scouting.”
As mentioned above, DreamTeam is also developing a money management platform that allows for easier management of sponsorships, media rights sales, prize money, salaries, and player transfers.
The end result of all of these features is that DreamTeam can be used by gamers and teams to organize themselves, recruit new players, manage money, and perform all other management-related tasks.
The entire DreamTeam platform is built on blockchain and smart contract technology. As with other blockchain platforms, DreamTeam uses the blockchain to create transparency, security, and immutability. All gamers can view transactions within the DreamTeam ecosystem, and all gaming-related contracts are recorded into immutable smart contracts for maximum security.
DreamTeam will also incorporate data science, including big data analytics AI and machine learning, to enhance its platform.
DreamTeam is emphasizing four core features, including each of the following:
Find Players and Teams:
DreamTeam wants to be the easiest way to find players, teams, coaches, tournaments, and practice games. Users can spend just a few minutes searching and choosing exactly what they’re looking for. They don’t need to spend weeks trying and failing.
DreamTeam promises to be the fastest way to advance from novice to amateur to professional using a “clear and transparent NBA-like path from a game rookie to a world top player.”
DreamTeam will launch the ultimate tool for team management, coaching, analytics, and scouting. Users can build, develop, and manage their team like a professional eSports club.
DreamTeam wants to create one platform for sponsorships, media right sales, prize money distribution, salaries, and player transfers. It will be the “first platform ever to securely unit all eSports business in one place”
What Problems Does DreamTeam Seek to Solve?
The team behind DreamTeam sees big potential in the eSports community. Obviously, it’s no secret that eSports has grown enormously over the past decade. However, they also see major problems in the industry that need to be solved. Some of the problems identified on the website include:
- There are very few eSports clubs due to “extremely hard conditions for creation and management”
- It’s a high potential market, but it suffers from limited growth rate due to unstructured and insecure market conditions
- Players struggle to find teams quickly, and often spend weeks or months trying to find the right fit
- Teams struggle to find good players to recruit, and lack a unified platform where they can organize the best players
The end result is that eSports attracts $0.4 billion worth of sponsorships each year while traditional sports attract $90 billion. A cohesive platform would help the eSports community grow – and DreamTeam wants to be that platform.
The DreamTeam Token Sale
The DreamTeam token sale begins with a pre-sale from November 13 to November 19. During the pre-sale, 1 ETH = 2,000 DreamTeam tokens (DTT). The company is accepting ETH or BTC with a minimum transaction amount of $50 USD (the website writes, “$50.000” and not “$50,000” so we assume they mean $50 instead of $50,000, but it’s not totally clear).
The general token sale is scheduled from November 20 to November 24, with a second stage beginning in January 2018. During the November token sale, DTT tokens are priced at 1 ETH = 2,000 DTT. There’s a minimum transaction amount of 0.1 ETH.
Of the total supply of tokens, 75% is being distributed during the token sale, with the remaining supply going to the DreamTeam reserve (10%), the team and early investors (10%), and the advisory board and partners (5%).
Who’s Behind DreamTeam?
DreamTeam is led by Alexander Kokhanovsky (CEO and Founder), who has 17 years of experience in the eSports industry. He built one of the most successful teams in the history of eSports (Natus Vincere, or Na’Vi). He’s also the co-owner of ESForce, the third biggest eSports entity.
Other key members of the team include Volodymyr Panchenko (Co-Founder), the world’s #1 private merchant of digital goods and owner of World of Games and Global Games (which have collectively sold 15 million games over the past 5 years). He also built the second largest virtual items trading marketplace, skins.cash, which has sold 10 million items in the last year.
The company is headquartered in Kiev, Ukraine. They were founded in 2017.
DreamTeam aims to be an all-encompassing gaming platform that offers a wide range of gaming services – including player finding, team finding, team management, and funding management services. Today, the eSports community lacks a single platform where teams can access professional-grade management services. DreamTeam wants to be that platform – and they seem to have the right team to do it.
