imli's eSports platform claims to be revolutionary by bringing about a new kind of model and experience. The platform is fully built on the Ethereum blockchain and says it's "transparent" - as opposed to other platforms. 

While Gimli is 100% based on the blockchain and labeled as decentralized, the company will retain some vetting power over who can and cannot organize bets, and in some cases block transfers as well as refund tokens if streamers attempt to use Gimli for illegal purposes.

High-profile streamers have already bought in, including CS:GO player Sean Gares (over 142,000 followers on Twitch) who joined the Misfits team on January 2017 where he has the role of in-game leader with a rifler, professional Starcraft II player Stephano (almost 70,000 followers on Twitch) with victories in both the IGN ProLeague Season 3 and the Electronic Sports World Cup 2011, MrBboy45 (over 1.3 million subscribers on YouTube), Skyyart (over 760,000 subscribers on YouTube) and many others.

Gimli is incorporated in Malta due to the European country's very generous regulations regarding betting and gambling.
