XAYA: A BLOCKCHAIN GAME'S DEVELOPMENT PLATFORM AND A VIRTUAL GAMING ASSETS MARKET PLACE
As a game developer, how would you feel having a platform that makes it possible for you to bring your idea to reality in a timely and cost effective manner?
Also, as a gamer, how would you feel if you were able to switch your gaming assets between several games you love or be able to exchange them for real world value?
All these and much more are what XAYA has come to make possible.
XAYA is blockchain platform that serves both as a game development and deployment platform and as a market place where gamers can convert assets acquired in a game into real world value.
XAYA offers game developers all the necessary tools that they would need to build and launch their ideas in a very cost effective and timely manner, while also offering gamers the opportunity to earn reward from doing something that they love by providing a virtual market place where they can convert asset that they have acquired in a game into real world value.
The game developer is given the opportunity to bring his ideas to life and earn while the gamers are also given the opportunity to earn reward from assets that they have acquired while playing a game. This is a win-win situation for both the game developers and the gamers and it can only be made possible by XAYA
PROBLEMS FACED BY GAME DEVELOPERS AND GAMERS IN THE GAMING INDUSTRY
Bringing an innovative game idea to reality is really a challenge to many small game development teams. The cost and time associated with such task are discouraging such small development teams from working on their ideas. Most small development teams are not financially equipped to bear the cost of setting up servers and every other cost that they are required to bear before they can work on their ideas. This difficulty of entry caused by high cost is preventing some wonderful game project from coming into the market.
THE GAMERS PROBLEMS:
Gamers are not given real ownership of assets purchased or acquired while playing a game. They are only given right to use such items in the game. If a gamer can be required to spend his hard earned money before he/she can access certain tools in a game, he/she should also be given the right to own such tool and also market it whenever he/she pleases. The current gaming industry doesn’t give the gamers such opportunity.
Server down time is also another problem being faced by gamers. Imagine paying to access a game for a limited amount of time and not being able to access such games because of server down time. Such a situation can be really very frustrating.
All these limitations are what XAYA has come to address.
THE XAYA SOLUTION
XAYA solution to addressing the problems faced by game developers and gamers is in two phase. The first phase is addressing the developer’s problems and the next second phase is addressing the gamers problems.

XAYA’S TEAM EXPERIENCE IN THE GAMING INDUSTRY
XAYA team is not new to the gaming industry. It put up a pet project in 2013 to test the waters of the blockchain gaming world with a project known as Huntercoin and it was a huge success. Huntercoin was a server-less multiplayer blockchain game with over 35000 characters interacting simultaneously in the game. It had its own token and was very autonomous. The huntercoin project was very successful and had a market cap of over $10 million USD
This breakthrough and huge success of the XAYA team with Huntercoin makes the team very prepared to bring the XAYA project to life because they already has a firsthand experience in the industry.
CHI is the currency that will be used to power the XAYA platform. Game developers and gamers will need to possess this currency in order to gain access to the platform. Assets acquired in a game can be traded for this currency in the XAYA virtual asset market. Also, other game's currencies created by the game developer can also be converted to Chi easily. This will create a high demand for Chi and help improve its economic value.
XAYA KEY TECHNOLOGIES
XAYA utilizes the proof-of-work (POW) to secure its blockchain. Every player’s account and every asset that they have acquired are stored on the blockchain. Some unique features of XAYA’s technology is given below:
Atomic transactions :
This technology was used by XAYA team in their first project that was a huge success. The technology has been improved upon and made easier in XAYA. This technology makes it possible for game items, game currencies and whole game accounts to be traded for Chi - the XAYA currency.
Game channels :
The game channel technology makes it possible for games to be played in real time on the blockchain. With this technology, multiple players can access a game in real time and the XAYA platform can be scaled to meet its global target size.
This technology makes it possible for disputes to be resolved amicably in a game channels without the honest participants suffering any loss. It utilizes time-stamping properties of a blockchain, merkle-ize hash commitments, amortized mining incentives and fraud proofs to ensure that transaction disputes are resolved amicably and the honest participant is not incurring any losses.
XAYA TECHNICAL DETAILS
XAYA will make it possible for all of its users to own a game account and also make all in-game items tradable. This will ensure that ownership of items is securely tracked on the blockchain in a decentralized manner and also make it possible for such items to be traded for Chi or switched with other items of similar value. This is done by transferring both the sold item and the corresponding value in Chi between the two participants of a trade in a single atomic transaction.
This transaction will need to be endorsed by both parties entering the transaction before it can be implemented. This is done to prevent a situation where payment will be made and the item will not be transferred or vice versa.
Also, games on the XAYA platform will be based on the concept of a global "game state" that was pioneered by Huntercoin. What this means is that, since several games will be running on the XAYA blockchain, a XAYA participant will only need to process and store states for games that he/she is interested in. Gamers are given the opportunity to update their global game states through transactions made on the XAYA blockchain or through off-chain game channels.
The XAYA time-stamping technology ensures that gamers in each game reach a consensus on shared game state in a decentralized and provably fair manner. Ownership of items can also be represented in a game state. This makes it possible for in -game currency or items trading to be done in the internal market place with ease by simply following the rules set by the developer.
XAYA implementation of game channels technology makes it possible for the scalability issues of blockchain gaming. Game channels record moves on a private side-chain and makes it difficult for moves to forged or changed backwards in time. The agreement on outcome of a game by two players is always implemented and should a dispute occurred, it will get resolve amicably because of the technology that XAYA has put in place.

Jason and two of his friends are game developers. They have been working on an innovative video gaming idea for some months now and have perfected the codes and schematic of the gaming idea. They decided to estimate the cost and time that setting up and deploying such idea would require and it was mind blowing. Frustratingly, they decided to put the idea on hold.
