SKINCOIN: An Ethereum Based eSports Platform For Trading Skins
The eSports gambling industry is constantly growing and has seen a tremendous growth in the number of users and popularity ever since skins were introduced. Skin gambling is the use of virtual goods, primarily for betting (also known as item betting).
It involves betting on the outcomes of eSports matches risking in game items known as ‘skins’ instead of cash, as you would with a conventional bookmaker. Skins are essential accessories for weaponry and ammunition in popular eSports games like CS:GO and Dota 2 with millions of players!
While Skin gambling popularity is relatively high, further growth has been severely hampered by the Washington State Gaming Commission. As a result, Platforms that offers eSports betting services resolved into creating their own site-wide virtual currencies which can be used for betting, exchanging skins and back to cash. The problem here lies in the fact that these virtual currencies being issued are unique to a particular platform and can’t be used on other gambling platforms which has support for Skin gambling. This is where SKINCOIN comes in.
What is SkinCoin?
SkinCoin is a universal currency (cryptocurrency in real sense) which is powered by Ethereum Blockchain platform.
Following the introduction and launch of Skincoin exchange platform in August 2017, Users can exchange Skins for SkinCoins —back and forth at any time. Also, an API will be developed, granting access to third party websites for converting Skins for game likes CS:GO, Dota 2 & Team Fortress 2. The good thing about this is that, Skincoin will be used universally across various eSports gambling platforms. This way, the limitations imposed by Washington State gaming commission are overcome.
