We prepare documentation, issue additional ordinary shares, include the shares in the shareholder register at the registrar and transfer them (process the transfer of ownership) from the company’s to the investing shareholder’s account with the Company registrar’s support.
What risks do shareholders have?
-Item depreciation: would it be possible? Under what circumstances?
Sometimes, items do lose value. In general, it happens during sales events on market platforms. However, we usually buy items after these events with the item price adjusted according to the market demand. Unlike the stock market, the game item market does not allow short selling. This minimizes the risk of a depreciation.
-Zero demand: would it be possible and under what circumstances?
Only unique and rare items can have zero demand. During a pre-investment analysis, we analyze item’s and similar items liquidity from the historical perspective.
-STEAM account blockings: scenarios and what we can do to prevent it?
We conclude deals in line with the dealing rules and limits set by STEAM. Our employees have accounts registered pursuant to STEAM’s policy. If any account may have been blocked we send a message to the support service. Once there is a confirmation that there are no violations, the account is usually reactivated.
Reduced popularity of a game and items: what are possible scenarios? What’s the timeline?
We deem the possibility of a rapid decline in CS:GO’s popularity as very low. However, we perform daily monitoring of game and player statistics news in CS:GO and other games. In case of a highly improbable popularity decline we can use the following strategies:
- Restructuring of the portfolio into items from other games
- Selling part of the portfolio
How do we protect shareholders?

A brief presentation of GAME
“I like this project for its uniqueness and the team’s new approach, as it makes investments in a popular though not so accessible cybersport world simple like never before. I have wanted to join the market for quite so long, but the biggest challenge was the absence of any transparent and clear access tool. Once in the project, investors become the rightful shareholders of the company directly owning the assets to be chosen by the project’s analysts. This model of project involvement looks clear and safe to me in terms of protection of my interests.”
“I long-trade in FAANG shares, so I understand the major public companies’ risks and profitability. A friend of mine advised me to invest in this project, so I weighed all the pros and cons and thought it would be great to try a small sum and watch the dynamics. I am planning to make another investment in the coming year, because I have read the expected indices for my portfolio.”
“I have been playing computer games since childhood, so, when I started my professional career I could see how big the game industry had grown. I have neither time nor talent to go in for cybersports, neither have I developed any game so far, so I decided to invest.
I like all those new and promising things for seed investment, I mean crypto, tokens, and stuff like that.
Relying on investments has resulted from a different factors. I know the founder and what principles he is using, the low entrance fee and convenient terms, the industry scale and prospects, and a chance to pioneer in this sort of investment.”
