Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), one of the most popular video games out right now. It has partnered with a crypto-game marketing startup called Refereum. PUBG Players can Earn Crypto Rewards for Winning Games.
For the initial campaign, the partnership is going to reward PUBG players with RFR tokens. This will last until 20 August. During that time, PUBG players can earn crypto rewards such as the Refereum utility token (RFR) by just logging into the game directly and performing tasks such as winning games. The company claims that it has earlier provided its benefits on games such as:
- State of Decay 2
- Apex Legends
- The Battlefield Series
The firm reported raising $32 million in an early 2018 private token sale. This created RFR token to integrate game makers, streamers, and players more tightly to encourage and view exciting fresh games.
Game companies want key individuals to play the game on streaming platforms and players to watch those videos.
Refereum’s already established a practice to reward gamers for streaming their gameplay, watching videos of other players, and encouraging content on social media games.
According to Steam Charts, PUBG is one of the arena-style games that compete with Fortnite. It has about 350,000 games per day on Steam.
Jones said: “PUBG is the perfect example of a game that wants to reward its hardcore following. Utilizing blockchain to do so helps them tap into their entire playerbase of influencers with micropayments, no matter their size, instead of rewarding only the biggest names.”
Refereum claims the token can be used to buy games, or in-game products like firearms or skins, as well as tip their favorite streamers.
However, Refereum is not the only firm that has entered the promotion space for the game. Russian, ICO-funded company, The Abyss, has an agreement with Epic Games (Fortnite’s maker) to use its promotional technology to promote further growth on the Unreal Engine of Epic.
