Money makes the world go boom

Who could’ve possibly foreseen that being in skins trading, with non-Steam related websites, could possibly be a bad idea?

In completely uncharted territory, buying and selling ownership of something on the internet turns out to be a good way to lose a fortune. See also: NFTs, Earth 2, almost every single cryptocurrency.

CSMONEY had a massive breach of their security - and when we say massive, we mean massive. According to some internet people the amounts stolen from CSMONEY equal to over $1.6m. That’s enough to buy device and pay his wages for a year.

Without playing him, of course.

Supposedly they sent a bunch of the skins to other massive inventories, for… some reason? Some suggest it was a distraction, while skin trader zipel think it was a ‘reverse Robin Hood’ situation.

Steal from the poor and give to the rich. The ‘La Liga’ principle.

Quite how they’re going to fix this is beyond us, and well beyond our pay grade. All we can do is retroactively point out that selling thousands of pounds worth of skins over a website that ends in .money might not be the smartest idea.

Though that’s not exactly useful information after it got hacked, in fairness.

In another money-goes-missing story, Australian org ORDER declared they’re up for sale yesterday; though initially it looked even bleaker.

Despite a $5m injection one year ago, ORDER have seemingly ran out of money. Now you might be wondering; why on earth did they spend money to sign a bunch of their old players from Renegades just to be about as good as they were before?

Don’t worry, we’ve got an answer for that. And we’re going to tell you what it is. Right now. Alright, one second.


No, no, we’re not stalling for time! It’s, erm…

Alright, we’ve got nothing. Maybe in future don’t just throw money at a mediocre team if you don’t have any?
