  • Alpine Esports signs QANplatform as its official blockchain partner to support fan engagement, team performance, and operations.
  • QANplatform will support internal operations. Access to QANplatform's developer framework will allow Alpine Esports to create programs that will automate many internal processes while also providing the team with secure and fast data that will be used to enhance team performance and organization.
  • The partnership between Alpine Esports and QANplatform aims to create several new practical use cases for blockchain technology to show its versatility beyond payment processing for sim racing, esports, and automotive industries.

Alpine Esports (a Group Renault brand, among other things in the Formula 1® Esports Series) and QANplatform, the cutting-edge blockchain platform, are excited to announce a strategic partnership. For Alpine Esports, the partnership will aid the team's fan engagement strategy and allow them to create practical use cases supporting internal operations. For QANplatform, the partnership aims to illustrate how blockchain technology can be used to develop business applications beyond payment processing.

QANplatform will become the Official Blockchain Partner of Alpine Esports. Besides the use cases, QANplatform will take pride in place on the new F1 Esports team jersey and esports cars next to other partners like Binance, Kappa, and Shamir. Today Alpine Esports also revealed their brand new content creation facility, the Alpine Esports Content Room "powered by QAN," built within the walls of their historical F1 factory at Enstone in the United Kingdom.

Alpine Esports invested in Web3 activations in 2022, playing a pivotal role in their fan engagement strategy with the launch of the Alpine Esports Series, which saw them offer $100k worth of Alpine Fan Tokens. Bundles of $10,000 worth of Alpine rewards and NFTs were up for grabs during live streams, dramatically increasing the broadcast's viewership. QANplatform is building a hybrid blockchain platform, combining public and private blockchains, by tapping into QANplatform's developer-friendly framework, tech stack, and secure code libraries. Alpine can gamify and customize its content and create new fan offerings instantly.

From an operational point of view, Alpine Esports will benefit from QANPlatform's quantum-resistant protocols, which will future-proof the applications developed on it and provide full protection against quantum computing attacks. Alpine Esports can create smart contracts (programs) in any programming language to automate many internal processes.

Guillaume Vergnas, the Head of Esports, Gaming & Web3 at Alpine said: “We see Web3 as the evolution of peer to peer relationships. Consumers want to be on platforms that are not owned by tech giants but platforms that are owned by users who can own their own content. Web3 is a new way of engaging with communities, customers and fans. We saw fantastic engagement with our first Web3 activation during the Alpine Esports Series in 2022 and we want to build on that momentum by offering more gamification in our broadcasts. We also see the business potential behind QANplatform’s technology. The flexibility, speed and security behind the platform will allow us to trial practical use cases for blockchain that we hope will streamline our operations.”
Johann Polecsak, the Co-Founder and CTO at QANplatform said: “There's no better sector for QANplatform to test a newly debuting groundbreaking technology product than the Formula 1 sector, which is famous for its complex structure and operation, progressive technologies, high performance, and highest levels of quality. QANplatform’s ultimate goal as the Official Blockchain Partner of Alpine Esports is to help Alpine to build value-added technology products and use cases on top of the QAN blockchain platform, which can be scaled and integrated in the future in Alpine Formula 1, and in the wider commercial car industry. Alpine Esports is a great partner for the horizontal plan since it is owned by the Renault Group, the world’s largest car manufacturer alliance.”
