Furthermore, through Cake DeFi’s platform and access to decentralized finance applications, they can compound their winnings and earn returns on their crypto.
Michele Attisani, co-founder and CBO of FACEIT, said,
“The FACEIT platform is home to the largest community of competitive gamers, which means we have a unique understanding of this audience. Our users are incredibly forward-thinking and educated when it comes to crypto, so the partnership we chose had to bring tangible and substantial value to be of interest. The collaboration with Cake DeFi is much more than brand integration and offers our community clear experiential and financial benefits [that] go beyond what any partnership of this type has delivered before.”
FACEIT users are core gamers who spend an average of two-and-a-half hours per day on the platform. A recent survey of FACEIT users found that many were already interested in and investing in crypto, showing a natural synergy between both brands and industries.

The partnership will incorporate Cake DeFi missions, involving in-game tasks and monthly challenges for players to complete in order to win crypto prizes. It will also include Cake DeFi weekly tournaments, which will run throughout the year and will be open to FACEIT players around the world.
Players will be able to earn even greater rewards on the crypto they win when they sign up to Cake DeFi. All crypto prizes are redeemable through their Cake DeFi account, allowing FACEIT to expand its current play-to-earn offering.
