USE CASES


Perez loves playing his soccer manager video game. He enjoyed it that he feels like he is a real time football manager. Sometimes, he talk to himself and exclaimed on victories his virtual soccer team has won. He strategized on how he will buy new players from other teams that wants to sell and he is really good with this game.He became part of his gaming. With trophies he won with the team he manages, he won a lot of virtual money of which are all lost if Perez should uninstalled his gaming appliation. Perez passion for coaching can be a means of earning for him if there is a platform that can actually help Perez to convert his won prices to real time money that he can spent. This will turn Perez's passion to profit.

In addition, the time and effort expended by the gamer could be rewarded beyond simple enjoyment alone and through the exchange of in-game virtual items for real world value or for virtual items available in another game.

on the other hand, Jimmy is a game developer. He had developed a lot of beautiful online games that can be play by different gamers across the world. But his problem is that he has no autonomous power over his application and the high prices he has to pay the internet server in order for his internet-based game to be played by gamers is so high that he sometimes regret even being a developer.

Time and cost from concept to market for many new and independent developers is often prohibitive.

This are but few problem faced by Players and Developers alike. Insecurity, intellectual rights, ownership, monetisation and maintenance of games are other dilemma face by developers.

What if developers could provide autonomous, decentralised worlds, rich in tradable virtual items for gamers? What if developers could go from concept to game release in less time and for less money without worrying about infrastructure costs (such as servers) and recurring costs (such as account administration)? What if we could offer true ownership, simple and safe trading methods for gamers to convert virtual items into real world value through an entirely flexible system? What if both gamers and developers could share in a win-win outcome with both able to capitalise on new revenue streams and participate in thriving new economies? What if we could realise a substantial and growing demand for a cryptocurrency, increasing its utility and value for users?

No more worries, XAYA gaming platform is here to solve the issue that has plague the gaming industries and it users by employing the decentralize nature of the blockchain.

WHAT IS XAYA?

XAYA is a gaming platform built on the blockchain and trading of virtual assets for cryptocurrencies as passion for players and developers. It is built on the blockchain to manage the increasingly complexity of game development and securing, sharing and trading of virtual assets. XAYA gives every game developer absolute permission to bring to reality the ideas they may have and also reduce the cost to manage such ideas when they are deployed as virtual assets into the XAYA platform. Most importantly, developers can create their own token to trade virtual assets with other cryptocurrencies such as the XAYA "CHI" which is the platform token. Also, developers can create an absolute decentralized and autonomous games where players can "expect 100% uptime and have provably fair game play with true ownership of their in-game items".

XAYA will achieve this by developing a single blockchain-based platform that do not necessarily requires a server for users and developer to access their virtual assets.

HOW WILL XAYA ACHIEVE THIS?


Chip of the old block

The XAYA team did not just wake up now to work on this project. This is a new development in the blockchain industry and cryptocurrencies yet, it has been functional since 2013 as Huntercoin which achieve a couple of success that paved way for this new gaming ideas.

The Huntercoin was recongnised as the first decentralized massively multiplayer played game, the world's first game totally built on tne blockchain and the first cryptocurrencies mining platform for gamers and developers alike.

Huntercoin was a proof of concept to develop solutions to the technical challenges and to test the market.

The XAYA gaming and trading platform build on this foundation that has been set and provide tools that can be used by developers to bring to life their inner most ideas with lesser cost. On the XAYA platform, developers can mint their own cryptocurrencies that can be traded with other developers minted cryptocurrencies and the XAYA token called the "CHI".

Summarilly, XAYA aimed at creating a decentralized and autonomous platform for developers where virtual assets can be traded for real time cryptocurrencies that are transferable to fiat currencies and can be spent by developers and gamers themselves.

I guess Perez would be more happy now!
