In August 2019, Mazer Gaming had signed a one-year sponsorship contract with Tron Foundation and WINk. This contract was put in situ for everyone to place WINk’s logo on their jersey, add them to their social media posts, and promote them generally.
At a glance, this is a very typical sponsorship deal, and in its return, Mazer Gaming was provided with an upfront cost to shop for all the new jerseys for their teams and 60k TRX a month. These monthly payments were made 12 times throughout the contract and accounted for up to a complete of 720k TRX from August 2019 to August 2020.
Initially, they were provided with the upfront cost a handful of days after the contract was signed. TRX could be a cryptocurrency that may quickly be converted into money for them. They announced the partnership about a month after they signed with them. They would continuously wait for them to give it the ok and let them publish, and the announcement was pretty much received well.
WINk themselves recognized the partnership.Their point of contact for this deal was SOON (Sam) on telegram, an influential figure in the TRON and WINk community. He helped them get in touch with everyone and was helpful too. However, once it was time for their first initial payment on September 1st, the only thing they were excuses.
On asking for the September 1st 60k TRX payment, they informed that they had to wait until the new jerseys printed, and therefore, the announcement was out. So, they decided to wait until the jersey with their logo printed to point out them.
They also made sure that WINk and Tron’s logo was printed on the sleeve of their jersey as promised and written on the contract. Subsequently, once it did, they waited to get their September payment of 60k TRX. On October 2nd, they reached out again, asking about the payments when two payments were overdue and started to concern them. SOON stopped addressing the matter and delayed everything.
He also suggested them to contact someone else from TRON to provide them the money but wouldn’t tell them any specific person. Towards the top of October, they confronted SOON and said to them that they would like to pay this money. By this time, three payments had been overdue.
Later that night, SOON gave them the e-mail [email protected] and told them that he would be handling the partnership going forward. He blocked them on telegram and deleted all of their conversations.
On talking to the guy whose link was provided to them, they realized that SOON (Sam) had told this Alex guy that they wanted to opt-out of the partnership and that they had the payment “ready” for them all this time and were going to be drafting a termination letter since Mazer Gaming wanted out of the partnership. This was never mentioned by Mazer Gaming and was false.
So they informed Alex that they did not wish to e the partnership. They have been ignored for months and haven’t received any update in any respect since the e-mail to Alex. All this is happening in spite of Mazer Gaming completing all their promises.
They have been trying to follow up persistently and finally decided to address this issue to the public as well. TRON and WINk acknowledged the fact that they have a contract in place and that they owe them money, yet they still have anything to try to about it.
The general disappointment which Mazer Gaming has is that this is not a massive amount of money to them. 60k TRX per month is next to nothing as compared to what they make every day.
For a smaller organization like them, money is of great importance, which affects their players as well. They have supporters of TRON since the start and hope that they will soon hear a response from TRON and WINk.
