Thursday, December 10, 2020, 0xGames made a proposal to make a partnership with Free Ton. It`s a Cypriot company specializing in the creation of blockchain-based open economy games. In this article, we will see what potential this collaboration can bring and how cost-effective it is to the opportunities offered.
0xGames is a company founded in 2017 in Cyprus. She is building blockchain-based open economy games. The first game “0xUniverse” was launched back in 2018, the second one was “0xWarriors” in 2019, and the third one, 0xRacers, is currently in development. During this time, 80 thousand users played the company’s games, and the turnover of the crypto-currency amounted to $ 5 million. 0xUniverse entered TOP3 games for decentralized applications and TOP1 in terms of transaction volume according to MetaMask / DappRadar.
According to company representatives, the main goal of their activities is to gain experience in blockchain development. 0xGames has already worked with 6 blockchain platforms and integrated them into their games: Ethereum, Tron, EOSIO, NEO, WAX, and Matic.
Also, the developer already has b2b cases of successful cooperation with Tron, NEO, WAX, and Matic. For example, in early August 2020, the company launched a second galaxy, 0xUniverse, in partnership with the Matic Network, and the partnership proved to be quite successful. In the first 3 months, players made more than 100 thousand transactions with a turnover of 3 million MATIC (~ 60 thousand US dollars). As a result, according to DappRadar 1, 0xUniverse is now the most popular decentralized app on the Matic network.
Representatives of 0xGames 2 say that Free TON has the greatest potential. A partnership between a developer and this blockchain platform can be a win-win option for a successful relationship since games are an important example of using blockchain technology and solving the problems of their implementation.
So, let’s look at a phased plan for Free TON integration:
The first phase will start with development to add Free TON support to the 0xGames 2 game environment. When the Unity game client creates accounts and executes transactions, the server can track the results of the transactions and store them in a database accessible to the client. Also, the 0xExchange module will be updated to synchronize the Crystal <> USD rate and save it in a smart contract. The first tests of the implementation of the basic NTF contracts will be carried out. All this work is needed to eliminate technical risks and prepare for the integration of the platform into our games.
The development takes 2 months. The initial request for tokens (in advance) is 50k TON crystals. Upon completion of the first stage – 100k TON.
The second stage also lasts 2 months and during this time the integration into the developer’s most popular game – 0xUniverse will take place. The developers will create a whole galaxy where players will be able to find non-fungible token (NFT) planets in Free TON (TIP-3). Players will be able to own, rent, and trade with each other through a smart contract and in-game interface. At the end of the second stage, 100k TON crystals are also requested.
In the third stage, 12 unique legendary planets will be created, which can only be found in the game world of 0xUniverse, to encourage players to explore a new galaxy and use the platform. Also, 10 thousand boxes will be scattered across the galaxy, which will contain from 1 to 1000 TONS of crystals (a total of 50 thousand TONS of crystals, which were requested for the implementation of the third stage). The developer will be covering it on all friendly blogs and among all 80,000 players as events unfold. According to preliminary estimates, this should attract about 10 thousand new users to Free TON, who will perform more than 1 million transactions within the first 3 months, which is a strong argument in favor of considering such a profitable partnership and implementing cooperation.
Stage 4 will start integrating Free TON into the 0xWarriors gaming environment – it is a multiplayer role-playing game that allows players to control squads of up to five warriors and equip them with hundreds of unique weapons and armor (NFT, TIP-3). Each warrior can be customized to have an original style and skill set. The player must level up and prepare to create their epic squad with multiple blockchains to dominate the battle arena and profit from in-game item trading.
The game is based on multi-blockchain architecture. This means that players can use different blockchains but still play together. For example, they can equip the same warrior with the Free TON helmet, NEO sword, and Matic shield. It is the combination of many ecosystems that will unite different audiences and help accelerate the implementation of blockchains. The request for the implementation of this stage is 2 months and 100k TON crystals.
Stage 5 of integration, for which 2 months and 100k TON crystals are requested (will be distributed by 80%), to motivate players to buy equipment chests (NFT) under Free TON contracts, it is planned to introduce a time-limited 50% discount and release a set of unique weapons and armor, stylized under the Free TON brand. Besides, it is planned to launch a series of tournaments with a weekly prize pool of 10 thousand TONS of crystals within 2 months (a total of 80 thousand TONS of crystals). Likewise, the developer is committed to disseminating information about this event as widely as possible, including news sites such as Cointelegraph. According to preliminary estimates, this should attract more than 5 thousand new users to Free TON, who will perform more than 5 million transactions during the first 3 months.
Thus, the game developer 0xGames 2 is planning to implement the Free TON platform, requesting a total of 500k TON crystals. According to preliminary estimates, this partnership can attract about 10 thousand new users to Free TON, who will perform more than 1 million transactions within the first 3 months, which is a strong argument in favor of considering such a profitable partnership and implementing cooperation.
Also, the combination of many ecosystems based on the 0xWarriors gaming environment will unite different audiences and help accelerate blockchain adoption. And, of course, the marketing tools that 0xGames 2 plans to apply to the Free TON integration (for example, it is planned to introduce a time-limited 50% discount and the release of a set of unique weapons and armor styled under the Free TON brand within the game). One of the plans for the implementation of the marketing strategy is PR-events, which should attract more than 5 thousand new users to Free TON. It is estimated that these users will execute over 5 million transactions in the first 3 months.
This all seems like an interesting partnership proposition, since not only use cases in games are cool, but also the use of tip-3 tokens and other Free TON technologies in the real world is really important for the project. Looking forward to furthering developments!
