Tradesports.com Launches, Providing the First Fantasy Sports Experience Where Users Play in Real-Time With Real Money

Intrade's Founders Bring Back the Popular Sports Prediction Marketplace

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 30, 2014) - Tradesports.com, the first and only fantasy sports experience where users can play in real-time for real money, today announced its re-launch. Unlike other daily fantasy sports sites, Tradesports.com allows users to change tactics and make adjustments as games unfold, by predicting outcomes like one would by trading in a stock market. Founded by Ron Bernstein, one of the original founders of Intrade -- a popular marketplace where individuals could predict outcomes for world events, Tradesports.com is now in public beta. Fans are encouraged to visit Tradesports.com to enter the waitlist and be among the first to participate.

"First, there were season-long fantasy sports leagues; then there were daily fantasy sports contests. Both of these options fostered a 'set-it and forget-it experience.' With Tradesports.com, fans can now play in real-time, making decisions based on how the game is going," said Ron Bernstein, Tradesports.com's CEO and founder. "Tradesports.com takes fantasy sports engagement to the next level."

Within Tradesports.com, users can win pre-determined cash prizes by correctly predicting outcomes during selected skills-based contests. Users can play for as little as $2, and there are also free-to-play contests for fans to try out the service and familiarize themselves with the trading aspects of the platform. In addition, there is no season-long time commitment. Players can participate in contests that pique their interest on a daily or weekly basis. In this format, early mistakes and injuries won't prevent participants from being successful.

"Consider this: in 2013, 68 percent of NFL games had teams within one score of each other in the fourth quarter. And, the NFL RedZone channel is becoming a must have for fantasy sports enthusiasts," said Bernstein. "Sports fans are hungry for direct 'lean in' opportunities to engage in real-time, and Tradesports.com offers that for all sports."

Tradesports.com will offer daily, real-time fantasy sports contests for Major League Baseball, the NFL Draft, the NBA playoffs, the World Cup, the NFL season, college football and more. To receive more information or to enter the waitlist, fans should sign up via Tradesports.com.
