App Offers Fortnite And Call Of Duty Players The Chance To Bet On Themselves And Win Cash
If you're not a pro Fortnite or Call of Duty player, don't worry -- you can still make money with your skills. Or, to put it another way: You can't play Fortnite on your phone, but you might be able to wager on it from your phone.
1v1Me is the name of a new app that allows players to place wagers against their own skill in two of the most popular PvP games around. To win a payout, you need to link your bank account to the app, and then stream your match on Twitch. Win and you take home some cash. Lose and you're out the amount of your bet.
The app was co-created by 26-year-old Anthony Geranio, who couldn't make the cut as a pro gamer. According to TechCrunch, Geranio was "making $200,000 a year working at mission-driven tech companies" but decided he wanted to "be my own boss one day." When he saw friends playing online poker during COVID-19 lockdowns, he finally decided to strike out on his own.
Obviously, we won't endorse an app used for gambling purposes and are presenting this simply as a piece of news, under the "of course someone is doing this" category. But we'd like to know if this is something you think you'd be interested in? Or, if you're like me and know you aren't very good at battle royales, is it something you'd be interested in if you thought you had the skill to win consistently?
