South African gaming startup Skrmiish has received a $2.5 million seed round as the company looks to build on its global player base of over 100,000 gamers across more than 100 jurisdictions.

This was announced by Skrmiish Founder and Managing Director, Chris Heaton, who revealed that the round was “ignited by Launch Africa Ventures, backed by Blockchain Founders Fund and followed by Stellar.”

Heaton further stated his excitement to work with the team. “I am so thrilled to have you all part of our fantastic team. With your support, we are going to conquer the world.”

According to reports, Skrmiish will be using the seed financing to debut in North and Latin America, increase monthly income, integrate more gaming franchises, and release its Skrmiish coin.

Luke G, the CEO of Skrmiish, also spoke about the recent seed round, saying, “Skrmiish will enable every gamer in the world to earn in every match they play within the games they already love.”

“This is a revolution in the accessibility to earn while playing games and democratises the competitive esports and blockchain-based gaming industries.”

“We’re fired up to launch our new MoneyMatch feature across multiple game titles, taking the casual gamer experience to a new level of excitement that we hope will delight players around the world.” Luke further stated

MoneyMatch is a feature created by Skrmiish which was released back in 2021. It enables users to earn real money in every match they participate in without having to wait for a tournament or locate a peer to challenge them.

It should be noted that the feature blends a conventional sportsbook method with conventional AAA+ gameplay and offers it live throughout the UK and Europe.
