Polygon Partners with Community Gaming to Enable Scalable E-Sports Events

Polygon has teamed up with Community Gaming to scale esports events. The  partnership will see a lot of improvements that will allow tournament organizers with little or no knowledge of how smart contracts or  wallets work to seamlessly deploy their e-sports tournaments.

After the partnership, Community Gaming will power the tournaments but they will eb deployed on the Polygon smart contracts. The partnership will result in a number of benefits including instant payments to players.

Combining online gaming, match automation and payment technology through smart contracts make it easy for stakeholders to organise events on Community Gaming. The Community Gaming platform was primarily developed to simply the creation of custom e-sports by grassroot tournament organisers.

MATIC Remains Bearish Despite the News on the Partnership

MATIC price continued on the decline to slide below $1 despite the news on the crucial partnership. Perhaps the impact will be felt later as the collaboration takes root. At the time of writing, Polygon was exchanging hands at $0.98, after losing ground from $1. Support at $0.96 is expected to delay the bearish advances, and give way to an upward price action in the next trading sessions.

Moreover, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) validates the bearish narrative. A sell signal flashed recently when the MACD line (blue) crossed beneath the signal line (orange). This bearish outlook will remain if the MACD remains and moves further away from the zero line.
