Although the euphoria about the arrival of the Chinese New Year continues to be present, there is no pause for e-sports, which are becoming increasingly popular every year. Great news for e-athletes is coming from China.
In an effort to further join the e-sport trend, China classified gamers as workers who are part of the country's valid work system.
Since yesterday, two types of job positions in e-sport have been recognized in China: e-sport professional and e-sport operator. As you can guess, an e-sport professional is that person who competes in various competitions and tournaments or trains teams or professionals who compete. The other term, e-sport operator, is used for the person in charge of organizing tournaments and competitions.
The move of the Chinese government is completely logical and expected, as e-sports in China have seen a huge increase in popularity in the last few years, and for that, the WESG finale is to be held shortly and will have a reward fund of as much as 2.5 million dollars.
