Back MMOAuctions now on Kickstarter

By Marc Hewitt |

If you’re an online gamer, here’s a problem you’ve almost certainly encountered: you want to switch to a different game, but you’re reluctant to give up the wealth you’ve amassed. The only solution is to cash it in, but the websites that let you do this are shady, confusing, and charge exorbitant fees. It’s not worth the risk or the hassle, so you just write it off.

Well that was the past. The future is a Kickstarter project called, which is aiming to provide a safe, fast, responsive, and modern platform for trading gaming goods.

Let’s start with safe. Security is paramount in any online transaction, and the team at has come up with a whole suite of measures to give you peace of mind. Not only is there a six-step verification process to confirm that you’re dealing with a real person, along with a filter that eliminates VPN and TOR accounts, but has come up with its own Scamkiller system to make doubly sure the site is free of scoundrels.

Scamkiller is a vast publicly available database of information about online fraudsters gathered from various forums and websites. It already contains 28,000 entries, and more are being added every day. On top of that there’s a badge and feedback system, so you’ll be able to tell at a glance whether the person you’re dealing with is a goodie or a baddie.

Another thing that differentiates from the online trading platforms that have gone before is its high quality design. There’s no unnecessary flashiness or flair, but the layout is intuitive, the design is clear, and the whole experience is incredibly smooth. What’s more, this is a responsive site, so it looks great in every resolution and orientation. A free mobile app will follow in due course.

The team at is placing a huge emphasis on making the site fast and easy to navigate. Adding an offer takes about two minutes, while managing deals is extremely straightforward thanks to facilities like mass-relisting and quick offer-editing. Alongside the suite of convenient seller tools there’s also a built-in chat function, putting you directly in touch with other reputable users.

If this sounds like the kind of service you’ve been looking for, you may want to head over to the Kickstarter page to make a pledge. For $1 you’ll get early access to the site, among other perks, while backers at higher tiers will enjoy a raft of goodies such as custom profile themes, MMOPro access, moderator privileges, and a variety of different badges and trinkets.

The current Kickstarter goal is $10,000, but the development team has identified a number of stretch goals should it exceed that target. They include:

  • A clan system, allowing clan members to see their offers
  • A digital key marketplace
  • A gaming peripherals marketplace
  • A skin market

If you want all this good stuff in your life we suggest you visit the Kickstarter right now and make it happen.
