Welcome to the world of

True Ownership

Gaming assets have real value

Digital gaming is now the world’s largest entertainment industry catering to 1 in 3 people. Digital assets comprise 78% of revenue generated by the entire industry, however, players typically do not enjoy real ownership rights.

Blockchain technology

Blockchain technology offers a new way forward for games, where players are the actual owners of their assets, as enforced by modern cryptography and easily swappable, blockchain-based tokens.

Game items

From weapons to quests, levels and more, everything can be tokenized and represented on the blockchain.

Licenses

Sell your extra licences, buy them as gifts or trade.

Currency

Game money is now a cryptocurrency, that gives you real value

What is the problem we are trying to solve?

Currently, the vast majority of money spent on games is on virtual items or downloadable content (DLC). In 2017, it was 78% of total gaming revenue - approximately $80 billion. This doesn’t even include the virtual content that is acquired via gameplay, like when players defeat enemies, loot an opponent or simply complete tasks that enable them to ‘earn’ items.

The current situation is that gamers do not truly own the content that they have purchased. They cannot trade them, sell them or even gift them to other people. In fact, these items are completely in control of game companies or distribution platforms, who can choose to revoke usage rights at any time, often without recourse.

A new crowdfunding model for game financing

The Kickstarter model has served indie game development well, but it has also been a great headache. Game developers must offer rewards as incentives for backing projects, which are almost always irrelevant distractions from actually making the game.

With Hoard, that is no longer a problem: Developers can now sell tradeable tokens to fans before the game is ready. No need for irrelevant trinkets anymore, give the gamers what they care about: the in-game items and goods themselves!
