RumbleMonkey, the head-to-head eSports platform for all gamers, today announced its company debut and exclusive preview of its real-money eSports technology at PAX West in Seattle, September 2-5.

The eSports industry is exploding in the U.S. and around the world, with viewership skyrocketing to an estimated 19.4 million by 2020.

With patent-pending technology, RumbleMonkey will give players a seamless, transparent and secure process to be matched up with opponents, choose a comfortable buy-in amount and compete.
