Scrim was designed by a team of video game enthusiasts to offer streamers and influencers some much-deserved compensation for their work. With Scrim, influencers and streamers can co-host live streams with other influencers or users per their own direction. By doing this, “Scrim Hosts” can generate income through unique and mutually beneficial engagements.
Hosts have the option to accept bookings which will be executed on Twitch, YouTube, or Facebook Gaming, a feature that can increase exposure for both parties. It gets better. Hosts can organize private Scrim sessions for exclusive fans and private content creation or make it public on stream for everyone to participate in. The platform pays its Hosts in 2-3 business days to any bank account or debit card that the Host provides. Scrim uses enterprise-level technology to secure payment information and protect the privacy of every member of the community. Right now, Scrim supports 17+ Video Games including Apex Legends, Fortnite, Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War, Rocket League and more. The Scrim app is currently available for download on iOS and Android in the US, Canada, Mexico & United Kingdom.
Scrim’s growing infrastructure will adapt to the evolving gaming landscape. In 2020, the industry in its entirety became worth $175B, according to NewsZoo (via GamesIndustry.Biz). Some part of this growth has been accelerated by the ugly emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has forced the global population to find refuge and recreation at home. While the gaming population has increased immensely, the 0.1% of players who make a living from playing games have sustained losses and have had to find other means to maintain their income. This is largely due to the fact that in-person events such as E-Sports competitions have been halted by the dreaded COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 has increased video game playership by 30% and this is expected to sustain itself at 17% YOY post COVID. The introduction of Scrim will provide earning power to the entire gaming population, more than there ever was.
Scrim was founded by Brandon Brown, who also happens to be the CEO of the platform. His personal experiences and 10-year involvement with the gaming industry thrust him on this path. In his own words, he said, “Scrim is part of my personal evolution that looks to provide a home for content creators who are seeking support, growth, and opportunity. I have worked in the gaming industry for over 10 years as a young black man looking for a seat at the table, to now breaking down those many barriers of entry. It’s important to the growth of our brand and the gaming culture that we be inclusive as far as returning that value to the creators and tastemakers that generate it through their likeness,” said Scrim Founder and CEO, Brandon Brown.
Brandon’s background in gaming, content creation, and music gave him the opportunity to learn and understand the entertainment industry. He realized that there are many skilled content creators out there who are finding it hard to monetize their talent because there never was a platform that provided such tools. He saw the gap in the industry and decided to create Scrim to create an opportunity for gamers and influencers while infrastructure that will support creators for the foreseeable future.
Scrim provides a level playing ground for talented gamers and clever content creators to earn income from their talents. Its Host install base is growing daily.
