introduction

Playgroundz is
"The Internet of Games"


The internet of games is the network of videogames, electronic media, software, consoles, internet devices and personal computers with gamers, software developers, and videogame publishers which enables these subjects to connect and exchange data.


Gamer-centered System

Gamers can create their personal videogame museum for both personal and social use. Playgroundz gives back the power to the gamers by making their play data and reviews worthwhile for the industry!

Network & Marketplace

Our community allows gamers to connect to games regardless of platforms and provides the proper tech for them to barter safely through blockchain-based escrow.

Better Game Ecosystem

Playgroundz helps developers and publishers find their perfect audience through Smart Data. Gamers can also help crowdfund new games and modes with IOG tokens they earn by simply playing their games.

Background

The problem

The Publishers own and control videogame and gamer’s play data!

The industry is systemized by centralized platforms and corporate publishers that limit and restrict users and their creative freedom to play and own their games. The Platform model creates segregation. Players with the same game but with different consoles can’t meet or communicate with each other due to cross-platform restrictions.


Playgroundz solution

Playgroundz levels out the playing field by making game data decentralized for everyone!

Playgroundz consists of an AI system, which takes advantage of Big Data and Machine Learning to specifically analyze the traits of users, Marketplace, which utilize Blockchain and Smart Contract in order to make Escrows safe and transparent, and Rewarded Community System, which is based on loyalty users.

Playgroundz has identified five areas of concern within the Game Industry and has a built a service to address each one. We believe that each service will solve real problems and contribute greatly to the development of the game industry.

FAQ

What differentiates Playgroundz from other Blockchain game platforms?


Blockchain is not an all-powerful solution for everything. The necessary functions should be used in appropriate situations. Currently, most of the game-related blockchain projects like Cryptokitties are based on ERC721. These project designs provide no gameplay feedback because they are all about picking units as selective functions. These new mechanics are not like traditional games... read more



You will need to work with many game developers in order for Playgroundz to succeed. What are your plans?


Our main goal is not to compete with others but to be a product that enhances everything game related out there. We are already working with top indie developers as well as other platforms to co-exist on Playgroundz. We aren’t going to make a new platform like Steam, or service like Twitch and Facebook. We are going to make our product something that benefits all existing platforms and games... read more



What are some of the development goals?
