The Future of Single Player Games with Leaderboards

The gaming industry is in a constant quest for new ways to attract players and monetize their products. While early blockchain-based titles often leaned towards a Pay-to-Win model with the addition of grinding disguised under the Play-to-Earn label, a new era of blockchain gaming is emerging.
By leveraging blockchain technology, games can offer seamless and fair gameplay, with every piece of data securely stored on a public blockchain. The introduction of public leaderboards, where players from all over the world compete for real-world prizes, represents the natural progression of blockchain gaming. The security and fairness of these competitions are ensured by blockchain-based solutions such as Smart Contracts and In-Game Oracles. Moreover, the gameplay experience is further safeguarded by the Server-Authority design, preventing players from tampering with their inputs on the client side.
The growth of the on-chain gaming sector will become a significant branch of the wider gaming industry. Elympics is uniquely positioned to bridge the gap between these two worlds, leveraging their expertise and providing the necessary infrastructure and support for developers and studios seeking to enter the future of competitive gaming.
With Elympics, developers can tap into the potential of blockchain technology, creating immersive and engaging games that combine the benefits of on-chain security and fairness with the thrill of competitive gameplay.
The future of gaming is here, and Elympics is at the forefront, empowering developers to shape the next generation of gaming experiences.

Taking the Next Step

The Urge for Victory

Reflecting on the Traditional Multiplayer Landscape

Historically, multiplayer gaming centered on peer rivalry, challenging oneself and reveling in moments of digital triumph. Players exerted hours honing their skills, mastering gameplay intricacies, and besting opponents, all for transient digital rewards like a leaderboard name or a virtual badge.


A Fresh Take on PVP Competition

Introducing the Concept of Game Token Duels

Emerging from the intersection of player aspirations and evolving tech capabilities is the concept of Game Token Duels. Rather than confining rewards to in-game assets, why not offer players a way to make their gameplay more engaging and addictive? With Game Token Duels, a game becomes just that – an arena to compete for player-funded stakes, at their own pace and will. This concept holds the promise to reshape how players perceive value within the gaming realm. It also offers a completely new take of game KPIs that are feasible for even most casual games.


A World with Tangible Stakes

Pong Showdown

To visualize the potential effect of Game Token Duels, consider a hypothetical transformation of 'Pong'.

The urge of winning and emotions that come along competing for money will add new dimension to a simple (still 2d) gameplay. It's not “just” about winning anymore; it's about ensuring one's skill yields real-world rewards. The thrill of victory might be paired with the satisfaction of earning, instilling a deeper sense of achievement and purpose in each gaming session. Imagine how much more thrilling each duel would be, and how much you’d want to rematch your opponent after a lost game.


Decentralized Technology to enable Duels

Blockchain used meaningfully

Blockchain gaming has tried many different approaches to adoption. Although not all web3 games have succeeded, one cannot argue with the amazing properties of decentralized finance and the power of Smart Contracts. And this is where Elympics’ Proof of Game comes into play. With verifiable game outcome, smart contract can simply transfer funds from the loser to the winner. There’s no space for fraud or exploits. And – best of all – it’s all done automatically and on-chain with Smart Contracts and Elympics services.
