Why are player rewards assigned in Antidote Coins instead of cash?

One of our missions is to provide you with a safe environment where you can iteratively test players’ experience and improve your game. To achieve that, one of the things we found necessary is to match you with real players, people you would find in the real world, and who are eager to share their thoughts on how they experience your game. We believe that by offering Antidote Coins, which are only exchangeable for game related items, we can avoid professionalization and biases.
