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.

Which altcoins can you use for gambling when bitcoin is crashing?
Since the advent of online betting, Bitcoin has been the preferred cryptocurrency. Time, however, is evolving. In the first quarter of 2022, its share fell dramatically. This week alone, Bitcoin’s value dropped by 15% over 24 hours, reaching its lowest point since December 2020. And this, according to experts, is tied to the increased interest in Ethereum and Litecoin, the second-leading cryptocurrencies. Their respective market capitalizations have increased by 3.45% and 2.95%.
What to expect for crypto betting in 2022?
According to the research, it is expected that cryptos would see growth, albeit with adjustments to coin share. And the diversity of cryptocurrencies used for betting will be a major trend.
But what is an altcoin, and which one can you use for gambling when bitcoin is crashing?
What is an altcoin?
The word “altcoin” gained popularity in 2017 when hundreds of different Bitcoin alternatives appeared on the market. However, by 2022, most of the top 100 cryptocurrencies will no longer be Bitcoin alternatives. Today, the market is flooded with new applications and products, some vastly different from others. With millions of cryptocurrencies already in circulation, it’s hard to keep up with everything that’s going on in the market.
In short, altcoins are non-Bitcoin cryptocurrencies. However, some are popular, with technological improvements that set them apart from Bitcoin. And there are several reasons why players prefer altcoins over Bitcoin. Let’s find out some of them below.
Why using altcoins for online gambling is a good idea?
There are many good reasons for gamblers to use altcoins. Here are some of them:
When compared to other coins, gambling with bitcoin can be expensive. Bitcoin is the most expensive coin right now (even though recently it has crashed seriously) and can be costly to buy compared to Ripple and Litecoin. They cost less.
- Quicker transactions
Unlike Bitcoin, sending altcoins like Ethereum to online casinos for transactions is faster. In addition, some altcoins have added features that help transactions go faster.
- Wise investment
Some altcoins can be used as an investment tool because their value keeps increasing. Because of this, investors buy a lot of altcoins to increase their chances of making money.
So, which are the most popular altcoins?
The following are some of the most popular altcoins used by online gamblers in the industry, especially when Bitcoin suffers its worst times.
Top gambling altcoins
Ether (ETH) – Popular cryptocurrencies are ranked by market capitalization, and Ethereum is the second-largest after bitcoin. In addition, Ethereum transactions move quickly, mainly when depositing money to online casinos.
Dogecoin (DOGE)– Even though it was made from an internet meme, the coin has become more prevalent in recent months. And casinos love it.
Litecoin – With quicker transaction speeds and cheaper costs than Bitcoin, Litecoin is undoubtedly one of the best options for gambling, particularly after a Bitcoin meltdown.
For the final remarks, we would like to point out that while Bitcoin struggles to regain its former glory, you can save time. Select one of the various altcoins and play freely in any crypto casino, like FortuneJack, where you can find the most exciting gambling atmosphere.

They enter the 2022-23 season as favourites, while Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea head the rest of the field in the EPL who aim to dethrone Kevin De Bruyne, Erling Haaland and their teammates.
The English Premier League is heralded as the most competitive league in soccer, providing three of the last four UEFA Champions League finalists in the past two years. Besides the winner’s market, Cloudbet customers are able to bet on a wide range of outrights including who will end up bottom on Christmas Day, who will eventually get relegated, Top Goalscorers by club, and a huge range of others.
