For the last years, the gaming industry has become a huge market reaching $100 billion revenue in 2017. One of the key factors of this growth is a digital distribution of games without the use of physical media like CDs. This way of distribution has led to appearing such publishers and retailers as Steam, PlayStation Store, Amazon.com, Origin, UPlay, and others. The Abyss aiming to become the gaming distribution platform offering the following unique benefits for gamers and developers:
– Multilevel referral: The Abyss offers individual referral programs to players and pays for friends engaged to the platform and users engaged by the friends. And if you are the first to bring in users to the platform, you earn the maximum income. This works for both players and developers.
– Earnings for gamers: Gamers can also earn from different activities on the platform, such as achievements, content generation (reviews, streams, guides, commentary, fan art), internal CPA Network, etc.
– Internal CPA (Cost Per Action) Network for developers: Developers get access to an internal system of advertising offers for engaging targeted traffic. Add here some promotion features, such as offering one’s traffic to other games for tokens, getting external traffic, viewing traffic statistics, link referral etc.
The Abyss also offers customer support service, simple UI, ability to launch the alpha or beta versions for collecting gamers’ feedback, and others.
The release of the first version of the platform is planned on Q4 2018, and the development will continue in 2019 and 2020.
Their ERC-20 token called ABYSS is the primary way of exchange on the platform. Fiat will also be accepted for game purchases for faster adoption, but if you buy with ABYSS tokens, you get a discount. Some features will be accessible by using the ABYSS tokens only.
The Abyss is a project of Destiny.Games, well-known Russia-based video game developer and publisher with extensive expertise in developing game projects. Founder Konstantin Boyko-Romanovsky, also the Founder of Destiny.Games, has over 17 years of experience in the gaming industry. The core team consists of 12 members (the entire team of Destiny.Games consists of 40+ specialists), plus 5 advisors. The team is really strong and looks more than capable of developing the projects of that kind.
In addition to most of the features of existing competitors like Steam or Origin, the Abyss platform offers their own unique ones, that makes the project quite attractive, but they’ve got the significant hype due to a decision to test the DAICO concept developed by Vitalik Butrin. This concept allows token holders to control the fund withdrawal limit, and vote for the refund of the remaining contributed money in case the team fails to implement the project. Among possible challenges we’d call the platform implementation which is planned only for Q4 2018 and more than serious competitors like Steam. At the same time, their five-level referral program is working right now and will definitely drive adoption in the beginning of the project life.
The Abyss is an ambitious project which is being developed by an excellent, fully-packed, experienced team aiming to bring a new generation gaming distribution platform with unique benefits for both gamers and developers. And they are trying to be better than Steam. Well, let’s see.
The Abyss is a next-generation digital distribution platform, delivering all types of video games (Free2play MMOs and cryptogames being a key priority), including AAA-titles, to the fast-growing global game community. Unlike other platforms (Steam, Origin, GOG, etc.), The Abyss offers a groundbreaking motivational and multilevel referral system, allowing gamers to earn from in-game and social activities, and other gamers’ payments as well. By joining The Abyss, developers will reduce their marketing expenses and receive an extra income from referral payments made in other games on the platform.
Important to note that project has three hard caps:
Total will be 60mil $ and 300000 BNB
