Esports One is a esports data and analytics company that wants to change the way fans watch and engage with esports.[1] The company is based in Santa Monica, California and was founded by Matthew Gunnin.

History[edit]

On February 27, 2017 it was announced that Esports One, formerly known as Esportsology, would be part of Quake Capital’s Spring Startup Accelerator for 2017.[2] Esports One was also accepted into Play Labs, a summer accelerator at MIT that was announced on June 21, 2017.[3]

On August 14th, 2017, Esports One announced their closed-beta signups.[4][1]

Esports One announced the close of their $3 million in seed funding on January 23rd, 2018, which was led by XSeed Capital and Eniac Ventures, with participation from Crest Capital.[5][6][7]

Product[edit]

Esports One uses proprietary computer vision technology, machine learning and custom datasets to provide real-time information for fans. This technology can capture what is happening during a live broadcast in real-time, and it takes machine learning technology to understand what is happening, and then it generates real-time information to display to the viewer.

OneView[edit]

On April 26, 2018, Esports One announced the launch of their Twitch extension, OneView, for League of Legends streams on the Twitch platform.[8] OneView allows a Twitch streamer's viewers to make real-time predictions about what will happen in a game, earn experience for their predictions, level up and earn rewards unique to each streamer using the extension.
