Malaysia licensed cryptocurrency exchange Luno announced Monstax Guild as its major partner for the Luno Battlexie: Winter Cup 2021 blockchain game tournament.

The blockchain gaming tournament, which aims to support the local gaming community and help grow the blockchain gaming scene in Malaysia, will be featuring Axie Infinity, the popular NFT-based online video game.

The registration line for The Battlexie: Winter Cup 2021 will be opened from December 1-15. The preliminaries will kick-start on the 18th through the 19th, while the final will be on the 26th.
