Established e-wallet Moneybookers has rebranded and changed their name to Skrill.  In a surprising change casually announced on their site by a banner stating "We simply thought it was time..."  Moneybookers is one of the most established e-wallets and has grown considerably since its launch in 2002.

The term Skrill in some languages is slang for money.

Customers wondering why the re-branding and what it means for the future were greeted with an email that said " For now, it won’t affect you at all. You will not need to make any technical changes at the minute and your key contacts at Moneybookers will remain the same. At some point within the next nine to 12 months, we’ll be asking you to update gateways with a new logo, but we will be sure to contact you with lots of notice to make this as straightforward as possible.”

Some have surmised the change is to distance itself from gambling associated transactions and it's recent relationship as faciliatating WikiLeaks that received a lot of scrutiny from the Australian and U.S. governments.  Skrill insists that the new name Skrill best describes their goal of creating a safe and innovative way for consumers to pay for their online goods.
