GGTOOR, Inc., (OTCMKTS:GTOR) Announces Management Report for the Weeks Ended September 3rd and 10th, 2022
THOMASVILLE, GA, Sept. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire – GGTOOR, Inc., (OTCMKTS:GTOR) (“GGTOOR, Inc.,”, “GTOR”, or the “Company”), an emerging leader in the eSports markets, announces it has updates on two of the purchase commitments for its Metaverse plot sales. First, Nerdland has requested a fifteen day extension which was allowed as part of the original purchase agreement. GGToor is extremely confident Nerdland will complete its financing in the coming days and a successful final closing will take place on or before the end of September. BITM Inc., Ballin’ In The Metaverse, headed by famed RJ White, has several funding options but has requested a 45-day extension as it is restructuring its management team to accommodate its plans which have greatly expanded since signing its original commitment to purchase a plot in GGTOORCITY. GGToor management is in negotiations with BITM and is considering playing a drastically expanded role in BITM which GGToor management believes could become a billion dollar revenue business in the noticeably short term. Final closing date is now scheduled on or before October 31, 2022. Management will update shareholders on the expanded role it may enjoy with BITM in the coming weeks.
GGToor Inc. CEO John V Whitman Jr. had this to say, “Our Metaverse expected closings, although extended, are unexpectedly celebrated because financing has been swift and efficient for both Companies and because of the expanded business models of both Companies, expanding business models will result in additional millions of visitors GGTOORCITY. Their expanded business plans will make the few days of delayed closings well worth the short extensions. I would also like to thank the over 300 shareholders who took time to write to me offering condolences over the loss of my dear mother-in-law, Josephine Britt. She was a remarkable lady whom I dearly loved and will miss.”

Previously, people often stereotyped eSports as a means of entertainment, not as another branch of professional sports. With the progress the eSports community has made in recent years, it is impossible to deny the fact that high-level participation in these types of events has gradually gained recognition as a legitimate profession.
Millions of players around the world are spending hours in front of their devices playing and competing – some just for fun, many for cash prizes and to chase their dreams as an aspiring Pro Player.
When it comes to eSports for games that can be played on mobile devices, we have to first acknowledge the growth of mobile gaming in general. Where gaming was originally seen as an activity only possible on a console or PC thanks to hefty file sizes and setup requirements, the introduction of the smartphone changed everything.
The recent growth of mobile gaming is no surprise in the gaming world. When the COVID-19 pandemic began, gaming became a source of connection and stimulation for many stuck inside. For those new to gaming, without the right equipment to get started on PC or consoles, mobile devices presented a pathway into gaming for many millions of players. The coronavirus pandemic drove revenues up for gaming companies by 35% in 2020. This market reality is what made the Company pivot into the eSports sector in 2020, quickly growing to now offer well over 20 events monthly, and positioning GGToor as one of the fastest growing organizations in this space.
