Pioneering gaming tech startup Skrmiish has partnered with Sportsflare to let gamers put their Fortnite and Warzone skills to the test and win real money.

Skrmiish is a mobile app that allows gamers to play Fortnite and Call of Duty: Warzone competitively for cash against friends and their favourite streamers. The partnership now allows Skrmiish to leverage Sportsflare’s Bet-on-Yourself functionality to create cash matches out of solo skill challenges.

Sportsflare is a wholly-owned division of Tiidal Gaming Group Corporation, which is listed on the Canadian Stock Exchange and focused on enabling next generation competitive gaming and building the future of game-based entertainment.

The Bet-on-Yourself infrastructure enhances Skrmiish’s existing peer-to-peer cash matchmaking and free event functionality, allowing Skrmiish to offer more gamers competitive gaming experiences 24-7, and more ways to win cash playing their favourite games.

“The ability to bring our player community game modes that enable them to make money from their own in-game events is a complete game changer,” said Luke Grob, CEO of Skrmiish. “It adds another layer of excitement to the gaming experience. Partnering with Sportsflare is a rare opportunity that puts Skrmiish at the forefront of developing the next generation of skill-based gaming.”

The Bet-on-Yourself infrastructure, allows partners to add account verification, pricing, risk management, settlement, and match data solutions to their platforms to offer player-vs-environment (PVE) skill-based gaming to their users. The collaboration begins with a rollout for Fortnite and Skrmiish plans to deploy Sportsflare’s technology offering on more immensely popular esports titles in the future.

“We are excited to partner with Skrmiish, the world’s first app-driven community gaming platform that enables users to monetize their gaming experience,” said Max Polaczuk, Chief Technology Officer of Tiidal Gaming.

“We are impressed by their application, marketing strategy, and rapid growth, and share a similar vision for what we believe skill-based gaming can become. By providing them with our Bet-on-Yourself solution, the Skrmiish app will offer an immersive experience for players to create their own cash matches with PVE outcomes. Overall, this partnership allows us to expand our product reach to a wider audience of competitive gamers and we look forward to commencing the deployment of our technology offering for Skrmiish on popular games.”

Skrmiish was launched globally in 2021, and is the first gaming app that allows gamers, streamers, teams as well as brands to collaborate, compete and monetise their gaming experiences. The app is built for users to compete in tournaments and create cash matches on player-vs-player and PVE games. The app also has its own unique BTC cryptocurrency digital wallet that accepts fiat and cryptocurrency payments for cash matches. The wallet is currently in Beta testing in the UK with rollout to the EU and US happening over the next few months. Available on Android and iOS, Skrmiish now has more than 100,000 downloads, with over 30,000 active users across its various competitive gaming features. Current games currently include Fortnite and Call of Duty: Warzone, with loads of exciting new titles being released in 2022.
