The gaming world has been making a slow, but steady transition towards crypto and blockchain technology. Now, PUBG – arguably one of the biggest games around at the moment – has teamed up with Referum to reward its players and fans in crypto. The plan is to help streamers, players and general fans earn crypto for promoting the game they love. Referum sets a list of tasks that players have to complete in order to unlock rewards and tokens.
Earning Rewards by Having Fun
In the crypto world, if it sounds too good to be true, it’s usually a scam. However, if you love gaming this could be the perfect chance for you to make a living by doing what you love. Referum has been around since 2017 and already has a wide range of games available on its platform that you can sign up to and complete tasks for. In PUBG, you can earn rewards for linking your PUBG account, getting 10 assists, getting 20 kills, placing in the top five and ten, as well as winning a game. For each of these tasks you earn a set amount of $RFR tokens, which you can then exchange for goodies or fiat on a crypto exchange.
Getting Paid to Game Isn’t New
While this might sound like an epic revolution, getting paid crypto to play video games is a concept that has been around for quite some time. Back in July 2018, WAR FIELD gave players the ability to stake their Golder (GLDR) on themselves to win in games. If you successfully won a match, you would win a percentage of the kitty, as well as a number of tokens for eliminating other players. Very good players are able to make a decent living by playing match after match. If you need a quick boost, you can spend Golder tokens on upgrades for your character as well as improving weapons.
Unity Getting a Blockchain SDK
Enjin has recently launched a software development kit (SDK) for game developers looking to build in the Unity game engine. This SDK allows developers to add blockchain aspects into their games, including immutable data records, crypto payments, and non-fungible tokens – better known as digital assets. This means that other developers also using the SDK in unity would be able to join a marketplace where items from other games could be bought and sold as well as ported into their own games – making for a truly global gaming world.
Gaming, blockchain technology, and cryptos go hand in hand, so it comes as no surprise that PUBG finally joined the crypto club. The partnership is already live, meaning you can head over to Referum and link your accounts to start earning rewards – can you think of a better way to spend your Monday morning?
