Group Me Meets Venmo for Fantasy Sports

It is the most exciting time of the year -- Fantasy Season.  Your friends are already speculating draft picks and talking smack to each other.  But now you have to deal with the part that every commissioner hates: collecting league dues.  Rodney swears he already paid you in cash, Mike sent his via Quickpay, Lisa keeps replying with emojis every time you text her to pay up, and Joe still hasn't paid his dues from LAST season!  That is all about to change.  Introducing Leagueswype, the Group Me meets Venmo for fantasy sports.

In paid fantasy sports leagues, the league “commissioner” often collects participation dues by cash or check. Where these funds are kept are anybody’s guess, resulting in slow or incomplete payouts, frustrated players, and fractured friendships. We believe the fantasy sports community needs a better solution - one that’s transparent, efficient, and fun.

This is where Leagueswype comes in. Leagueswype is the best and most convenient way for these 59 million+ fantasy players to collect and distribute league fees paid. Frustrated league commissioners can more easily collect league fees and pay out winnings with full transparency. Users can talk smack and engage with other league members using the message board and integrated messenger app. They can score discounts and special offerings made to Leagueswype users. In our opinion, never before has so much convenience, functionality, and fun been offered on one platform to the growing market of fantasy sports players. 

Leagueswype is a mobile wallet for the league, offering a platform for an interactive community of enthusiasts and an easy, quick, and secure method for collecting, storing, and transferring league pay. It makes collecting dues easy and timely, payouts are instantaneous, and ponying up for that mid-year draft party becomes a breeze. 

Leagueswype is the ultimate way to commission season-long fantasy play. It is a debit card with a personality and a mobile wallet perfect for the fantasy sports community.

The Offering

$10 per Non-Voting Membership Interest│When you invest you are betting the company’s future value will exceed $5.1M.

Development Stage

Leagueswype is currently in beta with a working web application available. We are seeking additional capital to complete mobile application development and to enhance UX/UI design.

Elevating the Fantasy Sports Experience

A one-stop destination for all things fantasy sports.

Users can collect, store, and transfer money in an efficient and secure manner via instantaneous transfers to and from linked credit or debit card accounts. However, aside from offering a quick, easy, and secure solution for transferring funds, the application also provides a suite of features that streamlines the user’s fantasy sports experience. Instead of keeping track of multiple sites, players can manage all of their leagues on one easy-to-use platform by integrating Leagueswype with their favorite fantasy sites. It’s a convenient way to manage all rosters and wallets. The platform also provides users a way to engage with their peers via direct messaging and message board features. Who doesn’t need an easy way to talk a little smack? Furthermore, fantasy players can access up to date and relevant sports related news, with the source and subject of content tailored to their preferences for a customized experience. Finally, users can save money and score discounts by taking advantage of offerings made exclusively to them. All of this in a secure environment across web and mobile devices.

Aside from offering a monetary solution for fantasy sports, Leagueswype’s array of functionalities enhance the fantasy sports player’s experience all season long.

The Competitive Landscape and How We Stack Up

Fantasy players participate in multiple leagues across different providers without a streamlined payment option. We believe our competition also lacks the full range of amenities offered by Leagueswype.

Escrow Services

(Leaguesafe, TeamStake)

  • Does not support flexible payments
  • No peer-to-peer transfers

P2P Providers

(PayPal, Zelle, Venmo)

  • More expensive
  • Does not allow you to store money for the fantasy season

Cash Leagues

(ESPN Fantasy, Yahoo Sports, FanDuel)

  • No peer-to-peer transfers
  • Too many wallets to manage

Current competitors either focus only on the collecting and storing of funds in a custodial capacity or are simply payment facilitators that don't attempt to engage users. We have identified only one website that offers fantasy sports players the option to pay league dues online and receive payouts at the end of the season. We have found no working applications that offer this service directly targeted at fantasy league players.

We believe that never before has so much convenience and functionality been offered on one platform to our growing target market of fantasy sports league players. Escrow services applications are designed to collect contributions from multiple people for a specific purpose, but do not allow transfers between contributors. Payment service providers are more expensive options to send and receive funds, and do not provide a league repository where all owners can easily view activity in the account at any time. Neither option provides more convenient fantasy play or offers special promotions to users. 

The Target Market

We expect our strongest market segment to be season-long league users who participate in leagues requiring payment. They make up 84% of the market, and 75% of them pay for entry to play. Of these season long players, 72% also participate in side bets and 65% spend money on magazines, advice, or draft kits. There are over 59 million users participating in an estimated $7.22 billion industry.

Additional market segments include daily fantasy sports players who find value and convenience in the ability to store value collected from multiple mobile sites on one platform. The stored value can be used on any site without restriction, or deposited into their bank account immediately. Other targets include one-off users who require an account to participate in office pools, users who contribute money to support a group event, and those who value receiving discounts on merchandise purchased through the application. These other targets could potentially increase our target market by an additional 10 million people.

How We Are Making It All Happen

We plan to create a community that engages our users in more than just monetary methods by offering functionalities that appeal to all fantasy sports players’ styles -  whether calculating, competitive, seasoned, or even casual. We will partner with content providers to access up to date and relevant sports related news. The source and subject of content will be manageable by the owner allowing for a customized experience. We would look to partner with the top fantasy league providers to seamlessly integrate into their systems, providing our owners access to their rosters making it convenient to manage multiple leagues on one platform. We would also target athletic related companies as partners to provide discounts on merchandise or services purchased through Leagueswype. We are looking to integrate into all established branches of the fantasy sports industry. 

State of the Fantasy Sports Industry

Regulations to allow fantasy sports in all states are in the works and the new sports betting laws have created the perfect opportunity for a platform like Leagueswype. Every person who engages in sports betting or fantasy sports play is a target Leagueswype customer. 

According to the FSTA, more than 59 million people play fantasy sports in North America, the equivalent of 20% and 19% of the US and Canadian general populations respectively. The average player spends $556 a year on fantasy. Together, users spent $11 billion on the activity in 2014 and that number continues to increase yearly. We believe popularity is at an all time high and season-long leagues, which have been around for decades, continue to thrive especially now that major pro leagues are endorsing fantasy.

Source: https://fsta.org/research/industry-demographics/

Industry stats suggests potential for Leagueswype:

• There are 59+ million fantasy players in North America alone

• On average, players spend roughly $550 per year on fantasy related activities

• Fantasy contributes an estimated $7.22B to the U.S. Economy

• The industry has grown by 23M players, or 64%, since 2011

*All stats are as reported by the Fantasy Sports Trade Association in their June 2017 industry research report

A Look at Other Markets Suggests a Promising Future for Leagueswype

We believe the popularity and growth of WhatsApp and WeChat demonstrate the market’s continuing support of social networking platforms. The sustained success of established veterans Gyft and Venmo as well as new entrants into the mobile wallet space, Apple Pay and Android Pay, demonstrates that the market is ready for the convenience digital wallets provide. Leagueswype provides both a social networking platform and a mobile wallet while specifically targeting a near $8B industry with over 60M potential customers in North America alone. 

*All stats are as reported by the Fantasy Sports Trade Association in their June 2017 industry research report (see above).

A Unique Opportunity in a Changing Environment

Leagueswype hopes to be the go-to payment method as fantasy sports become more regulated.

As stated above, fantasy sports play is experiencing a large growth both in the US and internationally. Regulation to allow fantasy sports in all states is in the works and the new sports betting laws have created the perfect opportunity for a platform like Leagueswype. Every person who engages in sports betting or fantasy sports play is a target Leagueswype customer. It really could be the PayPal of the industry.

We believe Leagueswpe can be the first and only virtual wallet created that targets this industry. Changes in laws and the ripeness of the market create the perfect combination for huge financial gain.

Invest in a New Way to Play

Our competitors are limited in what they can offer users and how they can charge for the service. We can charge for housing and storing all league dues and for each transfer. We can get paid for every purchase made through the platform and we believe advertisers will spend good money to engage with our users who already have money in a virtual wallet ready to spend. Both the developers and participants in fantasy sports are ready for Leagueswype. Invest today.

Frequently Asked Questions

13 days ago

Hello all,

We are just under 2 weeks away from closing out our campaign. I urge you if you have not done so already, please complete your investment today. There is still time to invest and still time to share this opportunity with your networks (https://www.startengine.com/leagueswype).  Thank you again for your support!

Over the course of the campaign, I have been asked several questions about Leagueswype and what we are building. I have decided to answer a few of the most commonly asked questions here as an update. Hopefully, you will find them insightful and helpful in informing your decision to invest.  

How did you come up with this?

Back in 2015, every time I turned on the tv I saw a daily fantasy sports (DFS) commercial telling me I could become a millionaire. Okay -- now I have won my fair share of fantasy league championships, but never did I believe I could somehow turn that into millions of dollars.  At that point, it became evident to the world that fantasy sports is a multi-billion dollar industry. I thought maybe I should create a game. The new DFS! But see I have played video games for a long time, what I realized was games come and go.  New versions are released all the time.  But rarely do you have a new video game system that emerges to take any meaningful market share from PlayStation, Xbox, or Nintendo.

I decided then, I want to be the console, not the cartridge.

At the same time, I became frustrated with the lack of all-in-one fantasy sports apps I had to choose from while commissioning my teams. One that is transparent and flexible.  One that could make collecting, storing, and transferring money easy and fun. So, I set out to create one. Since then, I’ve designed the platform, hired developers, recruited investors and supporters, produced a viable product, beta tested the heck out of it, and now boot-strapped, our company opened a public investment opportunity to find like-minded investors to support our mobile application development and UX/UI design enhancements.

Why me?

These are my people.  I have been a part of the fantasy sports community for 20+ years.  I know what makes sense, I know where the industry is headed. I am a fantasy player, who has used his hard-earned money, his nights and weekends, sacrificed time with friends and family to build this platform for a community that I know and love.

Now, in addition, I am also an accomplished finance professional.  I’m a CPA with a near-decade of public accounting experience and am the former CFO of a billion-dollar private equity fund of funds.  So, let’s just say I know that people pay good money to those who know how to move money more efficiently and I know the importance of doing so securely, transparently, and in full regulatory compliance.

This is a true marriage of my passion for sports with my demonstrated professional expertise.

What do we get for our investment?

You get ownership in Leagueswype. The company is set up as a limited liability company (LLC).  As such, we are offering membership interest.  Membership interest refers to the ownership stake that a member holds in an LLC.  More info can be found here: https://www.upcounsel.com/llc-membership-interest

What is the status of the app?

Leagueswype is in beta. We have a working web application that has been and is currently being beta tested.  We are now developing the next iteration of Leagueswype based on early beta testing and subject matter expert input. We are committed to building a brand that our users and investors are proud of. This equity raise will allow us to continue to do that. Your support is very much appreciated.

How do you make money?

There is a nominal 4% fee assessed for deposits onto the Leagueswype system. These fees allow us to offset processing fees and gives us the freedom to house “League Banks” indefinitely and make all transfers within the system 100% FREE.

We will eventually introduce a tiered subscription model. Each tier will allow our users additional access to premium content and exclusive services. There are numerous other revenue streams available to us and each will be well vetted and implemented at the appropriate time.

How do you plan to scale the team in the next 12 months? What key additions to the team are needed in the short term?

Our initial needs are a full-time internal technology lead and senior marketing officer. We have an interim CTO and a dedicated 3rd party development team. Both are well respected in the fantasy sports industry. We plan to fill both positions in the next 3-6 months.

In the interim, we continue to add to our advisor network. Our current advisory board consists of fantasy sports tech heavyweights and early industry pioneers along with senior marketing professionals who past clients include Pepsi, Quaker, and AT&T.  We also have a great marketing intern, Daniel T, who has helped tremendously.

Please, if you have additional questions leave them in the comments or reach out to me directly, darius@leagueswype.com. I welcome your questions, comments, or suggestions.  We are in the stretch run and cannot meet our funding goal without you.

"Here's An Area Of Digital Payments That's Booming: P2P Payments"

22 days ago

Hello Everyone! 

I want to share a recent Forbes article highlighting the surge in peer-to-peer payments. Here are a few highlights:

  • Through the first eight months of 2019, Zelle users sent and received a total of 163 million transactions
  • Venmo processed $24B in payments during the second quarter of 2019
  • The Cash app was downloaded 2.4 million times as of the end of July

The peer-to-peer payments market is booming.  Leagueswype is taking advantage of the advancements in peer-to-peer payment processing and targeting 60+ million fantasy sports players nationwide in a growing multi-billion dollar market.  The opportunity is enormous!  We really do hope you decide to join us on this journey to change the way money moves in fantasy sports.  As always, drop a comment if you have questions or feedback.  And please, please, please share this offering with your networks.  You don't have to be a fantasy sports player to understand the opportunity and its potential.  A link to the article is below, enjoy.

What are you pouring your heart into.....

about 1 month ago

Arguably the best free safety in NFL history will be inducted into the pro football Hall of Fame this weekend.  His name is Ed Reed.  Ed Reed's remarkable work ethic and precise attention to detail made him a perennial pro bowler and leader in the locker room.  His passion for the game was undeniable, anyone who played with him or against him would attest.  Below is one of my favorite Ed Reed moments back when he was motivating his teammates at Miami to reach their full potential.

Please know that we at Leagueswype share that same passion for the platform we are building.  We are pouring our hearts into making a product that our users will love and that our investors will be proud of.  Thank you all who have invested so far and the many of you that continue to express interest.  For those who are still contemplating and are on the fence, we do hope you do decide to join us on this journey.  Our goal is to dominate, we are not alright with mediocre.  We are looking for teammates that have the same desire.  

Let's go, man!

Our Advisor Relationships are growing!

2 months ago

Hello Everyone,

I hope you all enjoyed a great holiday weekend.  The Leagueswype team continues to build meaningful relationships throughout the fantasy sports landscape.  We are excited to announce that we are working on two very special advisor relationships that we hope to finalize soon.  One is with an industry veteran who built and sold one of the first mass-market fantasy platforms in the world and was an early leader and advocate for fantasy sports serving as President of the Fantasy Sports Trade Association.  The other is a technology heavyweight who has helped build some of the largest and most recognizable fantasy sports data games in America over the last 20 years while holding the positions of VP of Technology and CTO for some of the most respected names in sports.  Having both join us will greatly enhance our reach and brand awareness within the industry, making partnerships more accessible and ensuring our technology is built to scale.  We are proud and excited that both see the Leagueswype vision and have agreed to help us execute.

We know that adding talent is paramount to the success of Leagueswype.  The relationships we have established over the last 3 years will serve us well as we bring on tech talent and marketing experts.  We are excited to build out our team, this fundraise will allow us the opportunity to formalize some of these relationships and really get to work building the most trusted brand in fantasy sports.  We hope you decide to join us on this journey.  It will be fun!

All the best,

Leagueswype Team
