Crypto betting in video games has been part of the gaming culture since the inception of crypto coins. Valorant game isn’t the only game affected by such act, there are throwers who trade wins to earn money.
Such practices are getting popular in every popular game. However, an excessive surge in crypto betting has disturbed the fair play in the gaming ecosystem. Many creators came forward in support of ‘tdawgg’ recent move.
In simple terms, crypto betting disturbs the fair outcome of the game. It is designed to force a match’s outcome to ensure profits, thus discouraging new and naive players joining the game.
The crypto better is interested in winning the money than winning the game. He intentionally lose the game if his money is parked with the opponent’s team and vice versa, discouraging the fair gameplay policy.
Esports betting is legal in many countries. However, it has been misused by crypto betters who find a way to surpass the legal barriers. The Valorant pro community has urged an investigation into this matter.
Meanwhile, Riot Games will investigate the issue to minimize the occurrence of such events.
