“We are very excited that this round of funding was successfully closed at the beginning of 2021,” said Dino Ying, Founder, and CEO of VSPN. “The esports industry is through its nascent phase and is entering a new era. In this coming year, we at VSPN look forward to showcasing diversified esports products and content to more business partners and fans throughout the industry. We are counting the days until the pandemic is over and we hope that we can make fast and steady progress in expanding VSPN internationally, participating in the making of global esports standards, and supporting the development of a sustainable esports ecosystem world-wide.”
