Skinbay was a popular online marketplace for users to place their CS:GO items up for sale but just yesterday on the 14th of May 2020 the website was redirecting from Skinbay.com to Skincay.com.
There are only some minor changes that can be seen between the two website which include a text change to the logo to reflect the new name and a featured image explaining what cay means. Cay is a small island or bank that has coral and sand, a great fit for the fish swimming branding that Skinbay already had before changing names.
Explained in a TwitLonger post linked on a twitter post, they explain that they have had to do the name change due to eBay sending a cease and desist letter to them for the word “bay” in their name.
eBay is one of the largest online marketplaces which allows anyone to sign up, place items for auction or sale or buy other items. eBay sending out cease and desist letters to domain names with bay in the name is nothing new, many years ago Marcus “MarkeeDragon” Eikenberry explained on one of his YouTube videos that he also received one from eBay in the early 2000’s.
This is just another hit for the users of Skincay as the company removed the option to withdraw cryptocurrencies on the 1st of May 2020. Skincay has kept quiet with any additional information since announcing both of these announcements.
Still Skincay continues to be one of the best websites to sell CS:GO items as they let you set a custom price, they provide one of the best filtering options so you can find that weapon, and they have a history without any scandals.
