UK and Swiss based gaming and blockchain company, GAIMIN.IO Ltd is proud to announce Nicky Butt, ex-Manchester United, Newcastle and national England Team Player as Ambassador and Investor in the company. 

Martin Speight, CEO of GAIMIN stated, “I am delighted to welcome Nicky on board as part of the GAIMIN team. He brings a wealth of experience not only from his football and coaching career, but also from his entrepreneur and investor experience. Nicky will be a valuable member of the GAIMIN team, working as an Ambassador to represent GAIMIN, our technology and services and brand values to his wide-reaching community of business, football and gaming influencers.” 

Martin continued, “As Ambassador, not only has Nicky personally invested in the GAIMIN business but he will also take an invaluable role in aspects of business operations, supporting the growth and development of GAIMIN through his knowledge and experience in coaching and developing successful teams. Both myself and my leadership team look forward to developing a long term relationship with Nicky and his network of sportspeople, influencers, and entrepreneurs”.

On his appointment as GAIMIN Ambassador, Nicky Butt commented “I am delighted to join the GAIMIN team. I have been looking for an exciting new business opportunity to get involved in; one that is outside of my typical area of expertise, but one that utilises the skills, experience and interests I have built up over the last few years. GAIMIN presents the ideal opportunity for me – not only as an investment opportunity but also providing me with an active role as an Ambassador for the company, helping grow the business through my contacts and experience”. 

Nicky further commented “Obviously with my sporting background and interests, the virtual eSports and gaming world excites me. When I looked further into GAIMIN, the strength of the GAIMIN offering is what interested me; not only does GAIMIN focus on the gaming and eSports communities, but the GAIMIN technology also rewards the gamers for their involvement in the GAIMIN network, helping them passively monetise their unused computation power from their gaming PC. I’m excited to be part of the GAIMIN team and helping grow the business into something special and ensuring, as GAIMIN says, “No gamer is left behind!””
