At this stage, gear purchases can only be made by users who are able to enter contests where our cryptocurrency (SKR) is the prize.
We're currently working with regulators to open up SKR based contests for our friends in Australia and New Zealand (more to come here).
We also require users to have daily fantasy contest winnings that match or exceed an items purchase value, in order to make a purchase in the Marketplace.
E.g. If a user wishes to purchase a $50 Steam Gift Card from the marketplace for 820 SKR, they will need to have (at least) that amount of SKR in their eWallet, from daily fantasy contest winnings.
If a user doesn't have enough earned SKR in their eWallet to purchase a marketplace item, they will be prompted to jump into more contests, in order to be able to make the purchase.
