Decades ago, playing games was considered by many to be a waste of time. Now, players are using services like Buff to use the time spent enjoying games to earn real-life rewards.

Buff is a blockchain-based loyalty program made for gamers by gamers, where all you have to do to get rewarded is simply play the games you love. Think it's too good to be true? Years ago, you may have been right, but we'll show you how Buff made that a reality.

What Are Buff Points?

Buff Points are the form of currency you earn as part of our loyalty program for playing the games you love. All you need to do is be logged into your Buff account while playing any of the games we support (like CS:GO, League of Legends, Apex Legends, and many more).

What Can You Do With Buff Points?

After racking up a decent amount, you can take your hard-earned Buff Points into the marketplace to exchange them for real-life rewards.

Buff Points can be redeemed for a number of things, such as the following:

  • Gift cards (Amazon, Steam, and Xbox, for example)
  • Game keys
  • Gaming hardware
  • Merchandise

You can even redeem your points for in-game enhancements like skins and in-game currencies for Apex Legends and League of Legends.

If you are not a fan of any of these rewards, you are able to redeem Buff Points for cash. But do keep in mind, that cash redemptions are via PayPal only.

Are Buff Points Legit & Safe?

During the rise of gaming's popularity, malicious people and companies have tried to scam gamers by preying on their passion and love for games. This is why we have emphasized transparency in how we operate and developed a strong reputation for satisfaction from users in what we do. Buff has established itself as a prominent gaming network with its own reward system, coin economy, and marketplace used by some of the most well-known names in gaming, like Professor Akali, a professional League of Legends player.

We wanted to eliminate worries and ensure safety for users of Buff, so we built our app by partnering with Overwolf, the world's best in-game creation platform responsible for paying out $29M to the gaming community in 2021. And to make sure we really get our point across, Buff sponsors NRG, one of the biggest names in esports.
