Globally, gamers purchase over $100 billion of digital goods each year. Most of these digital goods are locked within individual games, and gamers lose all of their value when they stop playing that game. The current infrastructure does not promote the liquidity, transparency, or security required by gamers to buy, sell, and trade digital goods. Gameflip, leveraging its years of expertise and learnings, is dedicated to creating a transparent, safe, and frictionless infrastructure for the buying and selling of digital goods among gamers. The FLIP token will leverage the Ethereum blockchain and ERC-20 token interface. This infrastructure and the FLIP smart contracts will eliminate questions of trust and protect the transacting gamers from fraud.

The Ethereum blockchain will serve as the backbone for FLIP. We have chosen Ethereum because of its flexibility and wide spread adoption. Gamers can easily send digital goods and FLIP to each other, as long as both the sender and the recipient have an Ethereum compatible wallet. Game publishers can incorporate this function – for gamers to securely transfer digital goods outside of the game – with minimal integration efforts. The blockchain will act as a multi-game database, securely storing all digital goods and FLIP and tracking who owns them. With the new FLIP token, we aim to shift the paradigm for the industry by unlocking digital goods from each individual game and creating liquidity for them via trading in the decentralized ecosystem. Blockchain technology allows such trading to take place not only on the Gameflip platform, but also universally across any and all marketplaces, safely and securely. In turn, this will advance the entire digital goods ecosystem. We also will enable FLIP to be used as a payment method on Gameflip.com, one of the fastest growing digital marketplaces with over 2M users and millions of dollars transacted per month.
|DMarket, MobileGo, and Enjin. None of these competitors has the learnings and experience running a leading digital marketplace like Gameflip.com, an existing user base of 2M commerce focused gamers, decades of experience as a $100M game publisher (our team founded Aeria Games), or relationships with top global game publishers and developers that Gameflip does.|
