The technology is even being made use of in the gaming industry as more people are getting comfortable with the idea of the technology. In this regard, Refereum has announced a partnership with PUBG Corporation which will see users of the platform receive up to $5,000 worth of rewards at Refereum.com. The rewards will be given out for streaming and playing a game called PLAYERUNKNOWNK’SBATTLEGROUNDS which is run on the platform’s blockchain platform. The blockchain allows players to receive in-game rewards for achievements and streaming on the platforms with which they have partners. The platforms include Twitch and Mixer. The rewards being offered on Refereum will likely benefit online crypto trading as more users will gain more access to crypto as they earn more points on the platform. In time, the users may move on to buy Bitcoin as they become more acquainted with cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. Refereum rewards system The rewards that users of PUBG’s platforms received prior to this new initiative will still be maintained. The players who stream the most and watch PUBG are still entitled to rewards as has been the case from the beginning. The partnership with Refereum will shift towards also rewarding players for the things that they do in-game. Whatever actions a player takes in the game will be rewarded. From being the most watched player on Refereum’s stream to making the most kills, a player will earn points. If one earns enough points to take them to the top of the list, they will receive top rewards including special keys for in-game content. Some players will be lucky to receive a “Loot Drop” of PUBG merchandise which will contain a backpack, water bottle, hat and other merchandise. Refereum is a blockchain based game rewards platform that offers users rewards for doing what they love, gaming and engaging with your favorite games and gamers.
