Overview

The Ultimate Blockchain Gaming Platform.

Project stage

Beta version

Detailed description

XAYA addresses both the existing gaming and cryptocurrency markets and further creates an entirely new market in the process through games created on top of the blockchain. This new market is attributable to the creation of new virtual universes and item trading possibilities that are substantially deeper and more flexible than other emerging and simple trading systems using smart contracts. XAYA targets both developers and gamers. The XAYA team aims to empower a large proportion of new developers who find taking their game visions to market challenging because of time and financial constraints. In this sense,

XAYA aims to democratise game development. Through the creation of a virtual item trading and sharing platform, the XAYA team aims to allow players to generate real world value or capitalise on previous gaming achievements in new games through the trade of virtual items from one game to the next. This is achieved through the adoption of XAYA tools and applications by gamers and existing developers and studios.

Problem

There are two major aspects to the problem:

Developers 
Time and cost from concept to market for many new and independent developers is often prohibitive. It is commonly known that the majority of these developers are unable to reach the gaming market because of the aforementioned constraints. With appropriate developer tools and using the blockchain to create decentralised autonomous game universes, with a 24/7 uptime, the costs and setup time associated with servers or cloud based services are eliminated, as are the recurring costs, such as user account administration. This democratisation of game development through the blockchain will usher in a new era of game development as well as create new gaming genres. However, there are technical challenges relating to scalability associated with increasingly rich and complex universes within MMO games, as well as scaling challenges associated with cryptocurrencies and asset storage ledgers. These challenges are often underestimated, including in other emerging virtual asset storage ledgers.

Gamers
In general there is a growing desire for increasingly rich virtual gaming universes in which virtual asset ownership is important for gamer status and progression through a particular game. In addition, the time and effort expended by the gamer could be rewarded beyond simple enjoyment alone and through the exchange of in-game virtual items for real world value or for virtual items available in another game. This represents a challenge on two fronts. The first challenge is that a truly scalable and real or near real-time asset storage ledger is required for the gamer independent of the games they play. The second challenging requirement is to create a means of managing ownership and sharing in increasingly complex game universes, like those in typical MMO games. Over time and given the likely high value of many virtual assets and the gameplay itself, it will be critically important to ensure ‘provably fair’ gameplay and ‘provably fair’ item acquisition, which is not addressed in other emerging asset trading platforms.

Solution

The XAYA platform will provide a wealth of tools and infrastructure for game developers to build their own game worlds that fit their vision and project. They can fully leverage the XAYA technology to build decentralised games and issue their own game currency that can be traded for CHI or other XAYA game coins/assets secured by the XAYA blockchain.

Scaling is a major difficulty for blockchains and particularly for massive game worlds. The XAYA team has overcome this with breakthroughs in Trustless Off-chain Scaling for games (Game Channels) and Ephemeral Timestamps and will continue to invest strongly in this important field.
