He added, “I am thrilled about my role at Rush. We’re pushing the boundaries of what skill-based RMG could mean for users and the ecosystem. This is not just a platform for users to win money in games, but a community of players with integrity, who are committed to sportsmanship, transparency, and fair play. Hike is here to change the game, quite literallyand I`m glad to be part of it.”

With Rush, Hike is curating both a AAA quality gaming platform as well as a community of players. Every player on Rush has a HikeMoji-led identity that not just ensures safety and privacy, but also adds to the fun of gameplay through innovative self-expression.
