WAR FIELD Cryptomonetises Gameplay, Launches ICO
Those who are among the first to order will get their GOLDER tokens at 60% OFF the regular price. That means players who want to stake larger amounts will be able to win more GOLDER at a discount (larger stakes will be permitted soon).
With a player base of nearly 60,000 and a 4.6 “Benchy” rating from ICObench, it’s quite likely that the 150 million discounted GOLDER will sell out quickly. After that, discounts decrease.
Monetising gameplay has been the dream of many-a-gamer. A more than 100-billion-dollar-a-year industry means lots of value being created — mostly for corporations. For gamers themselves, cashing in hasn’t been easy. Until now.
“Our goal is no less than to create a global blockchain-driven gaming economy that lets video gamers fully monetise their skills,” says Andrius Mironovskis, Founder and CEO of WAR FIELD. The new online first-person shooter game has a blockchain-driven economy that lets players win, withdraw, and trade the game’s cryptocurrency just like they would bitcoin or ether.
“We are starting with a shooter because these games command the largest market share in the industry,” notes Mironovskis.
Players use WAR FIELD’s GOLDER (GLDR) — an ERC20-compliant, Ethereum-based cryptographic token — to stake on their character’s “life”. GOLDER are available exclusively at warfield.com during the company’s Token Sale/ICO which runs from June 28 to November 15.
Players then compete in deathmatch games. Simply put: the winners get GOLDER from the losers.
“What could be better than getting paid to play video games? It’s been a gamer’s dream. Here at WAR FIELD, we are making it a reality for everyone — whether expert or casual player — thanks to blockchain technology and a great online game, with more games to come,” says Mironovskis.
Unlike big tournaments, you don’t need to be an expert player to enjoy WAR FIELD and win cryptocurrency. You just need to be slightly better than your opponents.
“The goal is to give everyone a fair shot and enjoyable gameplay,” says Mironovskis. “So we will be matching players based on ability and equipment, which they can buy in the WAR FIELD Marketplace.”
In addition to a team of experienced developers, WAR FIELD boasts a roster of distinguished advisors that includes such industry veterans as Adalberto Bruno (Electronic Arts), Tom Frisina (Bally Technologies, Electronic Arts, Imagination Park Entertainment, thatgamecompany), Dylan Sharkey (LinkedIn), Scott Shirley (professional gamer: HALO and Call of Duty), and Benjamin Turshana (Electronic Arts, IGN, GameSpy).
“I believe that the adoption of this kind of platform for in-game purchases, winnings, etc. on top of the possibility to earn, exchange, withdraw, save, or sell GOLDER tokens via the Ethereum network can be potentially a game-changer,” says Adalberto Bruno, a mobile platforms and digital ecosystems expert, gaming industry veteran, and VR/AR pioneer whose portfolio includes 8 years as technical director with Electronic Arts.
During its ICO/Token Sale, WAR FIELD is offering substantial discounts on GOLDER tokens (up to 60% OFF). The discounts will decrease as the sale progresses, with the goal of making 100 GOLDER worth no less than 1 US Dollar by the end of the sale.
Once the sale ends, GOLDER will be unlocked and fully tradeable. They can be withdrawn from the game into any ERC20 ether wallet with no maximum limits and then traded freely on cryptocurrency exchanges.
