I am extremely happy to tell you that 99Gamers has now launched! We’ve came a long way since the original post on Reddit! We’ve been in private beta for the last few weeks, with the first trades now completed and hundreds of games listed for sale, we are now ready to let more people in.
Due to the high volume of demand, we are limiting access to 99Gamers to those who buy 5 coins ($1 per coin). Taking these measures will keep the 99Gamers community safe and full of people who care about what 99Gamers is trying to accomplish.
We can’t wait to have you all join our little community. As much as we would like to give everyone access right now, at this time it’s best to focus on providing the best video game trading experience possible.
You can get instant access now by buying 5 coins ($1 per coin). You’ll be able to start trading on 99Gamers immediately!
For a limited time, until we reach a certain amount of members, you will also receive an additional 5 coins free when you list your first game to sell. As long as you participate in buying and selling games, you’ll get an extra $5 free to spend on games!
By getting members to buy coins to gain early access, the community benefits in multiple ways.
Bad traders are kept out
Members who are willing to pay are much less likely to be bad traders. Between this and our other security measures, bad traders are almost non-existent.
Helps stimulate the market
Members need coins to buy games. Members need to sell games to get coins. If no one has any coins, then no one can buy games. This helps solve the old chicken or the egg dilemma. Members get coins to spend on games as soon as they start using 99Gamers.
Slow and steady
If we were to let everyone who is currently on the waiting list in at once, there would be more than 6000 members. This would create trading problems and the amount of bad traders would dramatically rise. By slowing the growth we can work out all the smaller details and make sure everyone’s trading experience goes smoothly.
If you get instant access, you’ll be supporting 99Gamers when it most needs it. 99Gamers was started with the idea that we should be able to get more use out of our unused video games. You will be directly involved from the beginning and will help shape 99Gamers future. As an added bonus, your name will have a star beside it showing you were one of the first to support 99Gamers!
Sign up now! I look forward to having you all as members!
