Swapster is a corporate venture backed by a DAX 30 company and built in close collaboration with Deloitte Digital Ventures. Together we will launch the first global, neutral, and regulated market for virtual in-game items as a service for publishers and gamers. The new marketplace will be operational later this year.
Swapster is an independent, standardized and transparent global trading platform which allows gamers to legally and safely trade in-game items and currencies so they can put value behind their passion. For publishers and game studios we offer full exchange market capabilities and additional gamer insights. Incorporating both, gamers and publishers, this leads to an enhanced gamer experience.
Turn your ideas into reality and work alongside with international top finance experts, online professionals and top IT experts. We are all heavy online gamers!
