GamerToken (“GTX”) empowers gamers to benefit from their passion to play games while also enhancing ownership and tradability of their valuable in-game assets on a global marketplace. GamerToken is an ERC20-compatible token supported by a framework of open-source smart contracts and software development kits (SDKs). It will be used to reward players for their in-game achievements and give gamers the opportunity to buy, sell, and design unique digital assets on a global gaming marketplace. Our working marketplace demo gives a preview of our ultimate goal, a universal marketplace shared by many developers for the exchange and design of digital goods.
 
Existing third party marketplaces for game items, such as rare skins, largely operate in the dark, outside the control of the game developers and publishers. This gives rise to exorbitant fees, unreliable execution, and account hacking. Utilizing the ERC-721 non-fungible token standard combined with a game publisher supported marketplace, cosmetic items can be issued by developers in limited quantities, tracked, and traded trustlessly on the GamerToken marketplace utilizing Ethereum-based smart-contracts. Gamers spend an enormous amount of time leveling up their characters and collecting rare items and we believe they should be rewarded. This ecosystem technology empowers players to have enhanced account security and true ownership of the value created by digital assets.  

Currently, game items are fungible; cosmetic items (such as skins) for characters can be minted an infinite number of times by a game’s developer, making them less unique and their value unpredictable. Legendary skins, created as non-fungible tokenized items on the GTX Marketplace, can be issued uniquely in limited quantities - making them more valuable, verifiably scarce, and identifiable on the blockchain. We want to provide the infrastructure for true digital scarcity in the gaming industry.


Non-fungible items owned by popular streamers and pro gamers, similar to the one that was recently sold for more than $61,000, could become highly sought after for their nostalgic value, similar to professional sports memorabilia which is currently a $370 billion market. We believe the proliferation of non-fungible items in popular games is an important next step in enhancing the infrastructure and security of items within game economies.

Staking GamerToken will be required for both creators and publishers to ensure smooth operation of the open platform and for preventing bad actors. When vendors of virtual goods and services first join the marketplace ecosystem, they are required to stake a minimum amount of GamerToken to begin listing items on the marketplace. As the ecosystem matures, staking requirements will scale to the size of the in-game economy each developer has listed the marketplace. This stake can be claimed against by leaders of the gaming community who represent an interest in protecting fairness for gamers.
 
The GamerToken ecosystem, through the Designer’s Corner, also enables designers of virtual goods and services a straightforward method of creating new content and collecting royalties. It adds the prospect of bounty rewards in addition to existing social and in-game item incentives, allowing developers to crowdsource content from the community with a fair and understandable structure. Through events such as design competitions, this process aims to unlock a plethora of community-created content. Creators will be required to stake GamerToken to ensure the quality of designs submitted.

To enable free and fast transactions that move GamerTokens and NFTs between gamers, the system will be architected as a Proof of Authority Ethereum sidechain and relay. This sidechain is a separate Ethereum blockchain, but, combined with a Minimum-Viable-Plasma-esque relay, we enable integration with the existing Ethereum mainnet ecosystem. A fully trustless Plasma chain is the ideal architecture, and we will move toward it as the technology becomes more mature.


To integrate with the GamerToken ecosystem, developers need only to implement a single API in order to create unique, non-fungible game items, buy in-game currency, reward gamers, and process marketplace transactions. A portion of the proceeds from item sales will be allocated to the game developers or publisher who originally created or licensed the item, opening up new streams of revenue for activity that is currently not being captured by game developers. By using universal standards for exchange, the GamerToken marketplace will be an industry-wide, open ecosystem, benefiting publishers, developers, and gamers.

Partnerships:
The Gamigo Group, one of Europe’s leading game publishers, will be one of the first launch partners to integrate this additional marketplace ecosystem and blockchain technology into its game portfolio. So far GamerToken has announced integration into one of Gamigo’s most successful titles: Fiesta Online. Earn test tokens for creating your character, completing quests, and slaying monsters. More game integrations and additional game developer partners will be announced in the coming weeks. The Marketplace demo and Fiesta Online crypto demo are both live now! Head over to www.GamerToken.com to create your wallet, download the game, and start testing trades on the marketplace!

Excited to be a part of this project! The gaming industry can really benefit from true digital scarcity and a developer supported marketplace. Imagine the possibilities when Epic Games can issue a legendary Ninja skin with only 1000 circulating supply after a big Fortnite tournament.

Multiple additional developer and publisher partnerships are being finalized. There are many game developers and publishers that are looking for solutions to reward loyal players with in-game rewards, create digital scarcity among cosmetic items, and link their game economies together in more efficient ways. We’re talking with potential partners that make RPGs, platform fighters, and popular FPS games. We're open to partnering with developers of all sizes so please reach out to us if this marketplace ecosystem interests you.

The team is already working on integrating the GamerToken ecosystem into existing businesses. The partnership with the gamigo group is an exciting first step that provides a large community of passionate gamers the ability to start trading and helping design items on the marketplace. Additional developer partnerships will be announced in the coming weeks and months. For now though, the Marketplace demo and Fiesta Online demo are both live on our website www.GamerToken.com

Thank you! We’re really excited about the possibilities of the Designer’s Corner for empowering creators. Some of the best games/mods have come from within the community. Game developers will be able to hold monthly design contests for crowdsourcing new content. This can be a set of skins, brand new levels, or unique game modes. Legendary skin designs could be voted on and created in honor of world champions or popular Twitch streamers which can then be tracked as they’re trustlessly traded throughout the community.

I've been waiting for something like this since buying into bitcoin in 2013. Integrating crypto directly into video games provides an opportunity to do some really unique things. Especially for these use cases when you have the publishers support.

We are very proud of the working prototypes that are already live and fully functional for the community to test. The GamerToken Marketplace (https://wallet.gamertoken.com/dialogs/login/) is available in demo form to test out buying and selling ERC-721 powered items. Gamigo’s first crypto-integrated game, Fiesta Online RPG, has already implemented in-game rewards for creating a new character, slaying monsters, and completing quests. You can download the Fiesta Online demo here and we'd love to hear everyone's feedback. https://gamertoken.io/#demo

Some of the reasons I appreciate GamerToken is that they've 1) got demos out 2) are building on top of an existing and expanding non-fungible ecosystem (Ethereum) while also 3) handling the scalability issues via sidechains (with Plasma relays on the roadmap).

In principle, if you agree with the developers of games, it will be a gold mine. Armament, upgrading characters, clothing, armor - can be sold to gamers for tokens.

Exactly! Gamers spend an enormous amount of time and effort leveling up their characters, climbing leaderboards, and collecting digital assets. The GamerToken ecosystem is made up of different developers and publishers that all believe that players should be rewarded for their skilled, valuable behavior and time spent in-game.

Just another token "for gamers"?

GamerToken is taking a different approach than many of our industry peers. We’re creating a game developer supported marketplace made up of veterans from the gaming industry that understand the concerns of gamers. We are helping established game companies move into the blockchain world, not the other way around. The ecosystem that will run in parallel with, and enhance existing communities and in-game economies from existing popular games. Gaming is part of our DNA and we want to help gamers benefit from blockchain technology in the simplest and most user-friendly way.  

The team is already working with and integrating the GamerToken ecosystem and API into existing businesses. The partnership with the gamigo group is an exciting first partner that provides a large community of passionate gamers the ability to start trading and helping design items on the marketplace. We’ll be announcing other notable developers and publishers joining the marketplace in the coming weeks and months.

Another difference that we see is that players can earn rewards not only in-game as tokens, but also from helping developers design new assets. The Designer’s Corner is where game developers will be able to post bounties for skin designs, map designs, and other community oriented crowdsourcing. Community members will be able to stake GamerToken in order to joining monthly design contests, earn rewards, and take part in shaping content within popular games. We invite you to try out the Marketplace Demo which is live for the community to test and we’d love to hear you feedback.
