As an industry advocate, Challenger sets out to progress the future of real money eSports.
Chris and I started Challenger in 2017 with nothing more than an idea to make cash wagering on video games easier. After a night of BF4 with our buddies we realized there wasn’t an easy way for the average gamer to add cash play into their normal gameplay. After a beer with Chris at the bar Challenger was born. It’s been a journey figuring out the right mix of technology to make the Challenger experience as simple as possible but we finally have it!
CSGO is live today so get on and try it out. Call of Duty, PUBG, and Fortnite are on the way so keep checking back or join the waitlist. We have a huge array of community features, new contest formats and look forward to deploying our first supported console later this year.
Thanks to our community for the ongoing support, now let’s all go win more than glory!
Chris (mountaintoph) and Team Challenger
