A recently launched Israel-based gaming social site, PVPChallenge, is giving users a new way to bet on their favorite games. Users can place challenges on the website that other players can agree to compete on, and both parties then put down a bet on who will win said challenge. The site takes 3 percent of the winning bet and currently supports a certain amount of games from PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Each player has their own profile on which they can write what systems they own, what challenges they have posted, and what their record is. The site also has a ranking system on which users can rate other competitors. Players can then see how other users ranked in response to challenges, and helps them determine whether or not to accept said challenge.
Once a user places a challenge and it becomes accepted, it is up to the competitors of the challenge to record the match and upload it to the website within a specified number of days. If only one player manages to upload footage and nobody else does, that sole player is declared the winner. If the players have a dispute in regards to who the winner is, the company will decide who the winner is based on the evidence provided.
If the company can’t determine the winner either, both sides will get their money back. If somebody ends up reporting false results, his reliability ranking will go down and has a chance of being blocked from the website.
Ori Koskas, PVPChallenge’s CEO has explained that features like live streaming and fan interaction will be coming in the future. They are currently focusing on getting the website and app up and running before moving on to adding more features.
Perhaps this new website will revive the world of eSports betting after Valve shut down CS:GO’s skin betting websites earlier this year due to the skin gambling controversy.
