GameCredits wants a piece of the giant pie the $100B gaming industry has to offer. Because of MobileGO's crowdsale they are able to use a huge amount of budget for marketing. GameCredits has huge potential since they cut out the middle man, they can easily to attract developers and gamers. Mainstream adaption will only be positive for GameCredits and this is why a huge part goes to marketing purposes.
Cryptocurrencies and blockchains are still relatively undiscovered by the mainstream. But hey, every day is a day where new people discover the beauty of crypto & blockchain and who knows it might be a gamer somewhere, because of GameCredits.
