Popular battle royale shooter game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) has secured a partnership with crypto-rewards start-up Refereum, according to a press release.
The partnership will allow gamers to earn cryptocurrency for completing in-game achievements and objectives, like winning a match or earning a kill streak.
Users will be awarded RFR tokens for completing said objectives, which should spur growth in the project which currently has a market cap of just $6.5 million.

“Gamers do so much free marketing for games through streaming services and social media, but they’re rarely compensated sufficiently for it,” says Refereum CEO Dylan Jones.
“This is the problem Refereum aims to fix — and now, with this revolutionary new way of rewarding gamers for their in-game engagement with PUBG, we not only reward them for playing a game that they love, but for their dedication in becoming better players, too.”
The campaign, which aims to increase mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology, will last until August 20.
Refereum is a start-up focused around giving gamers and streamers rewards for gaming. In the past, the company has also offered rewards for fans of State of Decay 2, Fortnite, Apex Legends, and the Battlefield series.
