Founded in 2017, Refereum originally aimed to create a gaming reward and marketing platform that connected game developers and game influencers.
Game developers were able to purchase Refereum token, place those tokens into their games, and decide how they want to reward players. In exchange, game influencers received money, in the form of Refereum tokens, for each gamer that they referred to the platform.
In a blog post on May 2020, Refereum announced that the company was taking the Refereum platform offline for the foreseeable future to evaluate and rebuild. The platform went offline on May 16th 2020.
