Dev1ce was just the beginning it seems — we are bringing more Danes into the NIP family. Copenhagen based GamerPay, who announced its new and safe skin trading marketplace for CS:GO in May, has joined us for a two-year partnership. Talking to more than 5.000 gamers revealed they’ve been scammed for $1 million, and out of a gaming population of 3.2 billion, this is just the tip of the iceberg, and the global problem GamerPay seeks to solve.
“The scam problem surrounding skin trading has existed in Counter-Strike for many years. It’s harmful to our communities, and adds a negative impact on how esports as a whole is perceived when new fans try to get involved. Partnering up with GamerPay to further push the agenda of secure and trustworthy skin trading is an absolute no brainer for us. We have a shared ethos of doing good for esports for a while, and they are forged from an incredibly passionate and strong community of people, who truly wish for positive change. It’s a perfect match, and something we’re very excited about doing together.” says Jonas Gundersen, COO at Ninjas in Pyjamas.
GamerPay is from now on our CS:GO roster’s digital partner, the main partner for Young Ninjas, and also our official skin trading partner — confirming the common goal: to eliminate scamming online.
“Unfortunately online scamming is much easier than in the real world, and most commonly we see that it’s young gamers under 18 who are affected. NIP understood our mission from the beginning and was passionate about partnering up to fight a joined enemy, and make it safe for young gamers to express themselves through skins.” says Martin Lykke Suhr, co-founder of GamerPay.
