Problems of the computer games market

With the introduction of this scheme, the volume of the market of computer games in 2018 exceeded 100 billion USD, and the online games have taken a leading role in the digital entertainment industry. According to the forecasts of the analytical companies, the growth rate will not decrease in the future, but will only increase.

- payment system;
These companies decide which games will be placed on the platform, and can also influence the developers of game content in order to maximize profits, even at the expense of quality.
Gamers, whose loyalty determines the success or failure of the game, do not have any rights to their game values, they can not freely dispose of items — buy or sell them for real money. On the other hand, there are professional players who earn a lot of money on their hobby, participating in various competitions in the eSport. But not everyone can become the top athletes, but the desire to combine business with pleasure — a game and an opportunity to earn — many users of computer games want.
