The Abyss provides the gamer more ways to monetize their gaming other than just earning the incentive provided by the developer by allowing the gamer to create and monetize their in-game footage and content,  and by provided a 5-level affiliate program.  This means that getting your friends on board the project can help you earn more money and when they refer someone else,  you will be benefiting from that as well,  all the way through 5 levels!

Founder Konstantin Boyko-Romanovsky has over 17 years of experience in the gaming industry. He is the Founder and CEO of Destiny.Games. The website lists 12 members on the team, along with five advisors.

Considering their extensive experience, the leadership team will know the ins and outs of the gaming industry.

• Nice team.

Conclusions
