According to the brief announcement, more than 1,200 users signed up for the alpha test in the first week after registration opened. Plair originally planned to have around 200 testers but has decided to expand the alpha to include everyone that signed up.
The 1,200+ alpha testers will share a pool of 250 million PLA tokens and rewards will be distributed based on the value of the feedback and bug reports.
As previously reported, Plair plans to combine the features found on established gaming platforms, including Discord, Twitch and Steam. The platform, which plans to launch in March of next year, will allow users to host and join esports tournaments, create and share content, interact with other community members and build decentralized gaming applications on top of the blockchain ecosystem.
In terms of esports, Plair has stated that it will support 1v1 and team-based tournaments for popular games including League of Legends, Dota 2, CounterStrike: Global Offensive, Player Unknown’s Battleground, and Fortnite.
