eSports or electronic sports is the practice of online multiplayer video games.CS:GO, League of Legends, DOTA, Hearthstone, Call of Duty… As well as soccer, tennis or swimming, eSports results in competitions where professional players compete individually or in teams. Games are played in stadiums, players win great rewards ("cash prizes"), teams are supported by thousands of supporters, goodies with images of games, stars and teams are created and sold…

SUPPORT A PROJECT
A refund is made in following cases:
- A project is canceled
- the financing objective of the collection for a project is not reached by the deadline
So you have nothing to lose by supporting a project because if it gets enough money, it will be realized thanks to you and other contributors. And on the contrary, if the fundraising fails, you are fully refunded without charge by making a request
A counterparty is a kind of "reward", something that you receive in exchange for your financial contribution. Basically, you support financially a project by giving an amount, and receive in return a "gift" from the project owner who decides what the community receives in exchange for a given amount.
At any time, you can see the progress of any ongoing project by going to the page of the latter.
Note: A collection ends on a specific date, regardless of the amount raised.
You can financially support a project by credit card or PayPal. All transactions are secure and require the same information as any other online payment.
By credit card:
Your support will be immediately debited from your account but will be available for the project sponsor only if the project reaches the financing objective:
Otherwise, you will be fully refunded without charge after making the request.
We accept the following french or foreign credit cards:
- Carte Bleue
By Paypal :
Support a project via PayPal requires that the project owner has enabled this option, and that you also own a Paypal account. Payments through PayPal are debited at the end of the collection if it has reached the required amount.
All currencies are accepted on Stakrn.
Nothing easier ! On each project, you can see the time until the end of the collection, the financing objective and rewards offered in exchange for your contribution.
Once your choice is made, simply click on the chosen amount and you will be redirected to the Stakrn account creation page, then on a secure page to add your payment information.
To find a project, you can put your mouse on "More" in the top right bar and then just click on "All projects". They are sorted by categories: cosplays, teams, gaming houses, goodies, LAN and streams.
CREATE YOUR PROJECT
Stakrn charges a 5% commission on the amounts collected. This commission allows us primarily to pay the financial costs associated with each transaction (VAT, banking online payment fees and expenses), to ensure the promotion of the collection campaigns, but also to run our services (site developments, IT security, etc.).
These costs do not change your payment amount.
To enable the project owner to get the raised funds, it is necessary that:
- the project has reached the financing objective. Otherwise, see the specific provisions:
- the identity of the project owner has been checked and validated by the Stakrn team.
Raised funds are deposited in the bank account linked to the project from the first working day after the end of the collection.
For funds collected by PayPal (or any other online payment service), they are available on the first working day after the end of the collection on the account linked to the project. The project owner can make a transfer to another bank account.
To effectively promote a project, you need:
- Draft properly the fundraising page by inserting pictures and articles related to the project. Tell your story, raises awareness, and be vendor simultaneously.
- Inform contributors to the advancement of the collection and the project.
- Tell your family, your friends, your online community…
- Have good communication on social networks.
- Be innovative to promote your project; you can add a signature to your messages, tell about it when you play online...
At Stakrn, we believe in the strength of the community, so we do not offer a paid service to highlight a project.

To do so, you first have to select your status (individual, company or association), write an explanatory text, define the amount (and its currency) and a collection time and rewards for your contributors.
Of course, we advise you to give maximum information, detailing the project (explaining the use of collected funds), inserting pictures or articles related to the project.
The project page will be accessible and modifiable throughout the collection. Especially, you need this page to be catchy. Make appeal to designers, editors, amateur photographers around you - take the time to do a quality proposal because the credibility of your project depends on this.
There is no limit of money for projects on Stakrn, there is only a time limit. For the project to be realized, you must succeed in reaching the budget target in time.
It is better to ask the minimum for the project to be viable, and since the collection stops when the time ended, you will have more money to carry out your project if it exceeds the amount requested.
Click here and fill the project proposal form.
Then you just need to:
- describe your project
