COMPETITIVE RULING: IAN “CHRYSANIA” CHIN
Chrysania participated in creating a commercial boosting service that would facilitate financial arrangements between customers of the boosting service and a group of players in order to boost the MMR of the customers’ account. Chrysania planned to promote the commercial boosting service using a Singapore based selling application that is used to market a range of goods and services across Singapore and eastern Asia.
