Onboarding Players

Bridging the gap between Traditional and On-chain Gaming

Helping the next wave of players move on-chain


Blockchain Gaming as a Spectrum

One of the most common misconceptions about blockchain gaming is the tendency to view it in binary terms. For the majority of people, it's seen as either Zero or One: either Traditional Gaming or On-Chain Gaming, with nothing in between. However, this perspective is far from accurate. Blockchain is a versatile technology, much like any other technology, and it can be introduced gradually, applying where it's most beneficial. Consequently, games incorporating blockchain technology don't necessarily have to involve NFTs, tokens, or be hosted entirely on-chain. Blockchain's implementation can work in the background, such as copying and storing backup data on-chain to enhance overall security and decentralize the data. The integration of blockchain is a spectrum, and it should be approached as such.

Through the integration of Elympics' solutions, the event organizers were able to create a personalized game that not only entertained but also incentivized participants with real-world prizes. It's a testament to the power of gamification and the impact it can have on events and engagements.
Another notable example showcasing the capabilities of Elympics is the game WinMe, which was developed using the Elympics platform. The studio chose to build their game based on the popular title Flappy Bird, enhancing it with the inclusion of a public Leaderboard mechanic. This strategic decision created a competitive environment where players were motivated to showcase their skills and climb up the leaderboard.
Upon its release, WinMe garnered a significant player base, with over one thousand downloads on the App Store alone. The creators of WinMe successfully captured the attention of players, as top scores were rewarded with enticing real-world prizes such as sneakers, hoodies, and T-shirts.
The integration of Elympics into the development of WinMe not only enhanced player engagement and competition, but also facilitated the seamless implementation of monetization and reward systems. It exemplifies the potential of Elympics in creating captivating games that resonate with players and drive success for both developers and participants.

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.

The Merge

Creating a Switch

Benefits of blockchain coupled with traditional foundations

Imagine creating a game using a traditional gaming model while also having the flexibility to add extra monetization features as needed. How does it work? The game itself is developed using a range of SDKs and tools provided by Elympics, and this process doesn't necessarily require blockchain integration. However, if you want to introduce additional monetization options beyond the microtransactions commonly found in the traditional model, you can easily implement off-the-shelf solutions. This approach offers developers a model where they can combine the strengths of both worlds in their game, adapting to the current requirements and player preferences rather than relying solely on one solution. Why limit yourself to a single approach when you can leverage multiple solutions to meet changing circumstances and player demands?

Empowering the Community

Decentralized Hosting

Giving players the agency over their beloved game

Consider a scenario where a gaming studio decides to wind down their niche game due to a perceived lack of profitability. While this decision might make sense from a business standpoint, there are often dedicated players who continue to enjoy the game. Shutting down the servers would be a significant loss for them and such a situation is commonly found in traditional gaming. However, with the benefits of blockchain technology, it doesn't have to be the case. Decentralized Hosting provides a solution in which the game's community can take over the responsibility of hosting the game if the gaming studio decides it's no longer viable. Just imagine how much more vibrant and diverse the landscape of competitive and cooperative multiplayer games could be if Decentralized Hosting had been available earlier.

On-chain Storage

Moving the Data

Creating on-chain backup storage

A fundamental aspect of traditional gaming is the reliance on centralized servers for data, which can create a single point of failure. Now, consider if gaming studios were to incorporate blockchain technology, not as the primary data storage location, but as a backup in case the primary one fails. Due to the decentralized storage nature of blockchain, gaming studios could offer players access to their data at any time without requiring prior permissions or gated access. This means that players might not even notice the change, all the while enjoying additional advantages. This is where a high-quality gaming experience meets the benefits of blockchain technology.

Soulbound NFT

Implementing Eternal Badges

Enabling Players to Export the Mastery

NFT is a technology, and like all technologies, it can be adapted to meet the user's requirements. This is the essence of Soulbound NFTs. The concept behind Soulbound NFTs is that these NFTs, once assigned to an account, cannot be traded, transferred, or deleted. This effectively eliminates the possibility of mercenary capital flooding the ecosystem and playing their value extraction games, as the entire concept of trading can be easily eliminated at the developer's discretion, while still retaining all the advantages of NFT technology. With this approach, a developer can create a game in which players receive badges for achievements, seasonal rewards, or guild membership that cannot be traded or maliciously deleted. It is as if Steam badges and achievements were not stored on Steam, but even if Steam went down, they would still be forever stored on the player’s account and easily accessible.

Building the Moat

Moving Along the Spectrum

Blockchain gaming doesn't have to be deployed entirely on-chain. This is a crucial lesson learned from the first wave of on-chain gaming, which aimed to isolate itself from traditional gaming infrastructure while attempting to replicate its success. This paradox resulted in on-chain gaming struggling to gain attention with its untested value proposition. Instead of rejecting the fundamental advantages of traditional gaming, it should be embraced.
