The GAMEE gaming platform will soon launch an Ethereum token used for rewards and governance, and REVV owners can win some through Uniswap.
- The hyper-casual gaming platform GAMEE will launch a reward and governance token.
- It will be released in late 2020 after a private pre-sale and gifts.
- The parent company, Animoca Brands, is one of the leading companies in the game encryption industry.
Crypto is coming to the casual mobile gaming market.
GAMEE, which claims to have more than 20 million registered users, is a platform for "hyper-casual" games, meaning very simple games designed for quick catch and play sessions, instead of those that require a lot of time or significant complexity resources. And soon, GAMEE will have its own Ethereum-based token for users to win while playing.
Parent company Animoca Brands, which acquired GAMEE this summer and is very active in the crypto gaming space, announced today that it will launch the GAMEE Token by the end of the year. The GAMEE Token will be used to reward online engagement and competition, and will also reward creators who publish games on the HTML5-based games and web application platform.
Hyper casual games have dominated mobile download stops lately, with mobile analytics company Sensor Tower reporting that 77.6% of the total 2.1 billion game downloads in the 20 most popular new mobile games of 2019 belonged to these hyper-casual experiences. Simple, straightforward games like Fun Race 3D and Sand Balls are driving hundreds of millions of downloads on mobile and are loaded with ads and optional in-game purchases.
They are the type of games that can become highly addictive - and potentially even more addictive when encryption is added to the mix.
The GAMEE token is a fungible ERC-20 token and, in addition to its planned reward functionality, can also be used to pay tournament entry fees and also for governance voting. GAMEE is also working on a non-fungible token system that will unlock additional content and increases in compatible games, with users able to spend their GAMEE tokens on GAMEE NFTs.
According to a release, GAMEE has more than 80 games on its platform that can be played on web browsers and native apps for iOS and Android. The platform has more than 20 million registered users and 40 million registered gaming sessions per month, with users divided almost evenly across the website and mobile apps. GAMEE also developed games in collaboration with brands like NASA, Cartoon Network and Manchester City Football Club.
Animoca Brands plans to launch and list the GAMEE Token by the end of the year, with 254.400.000 tokens to be sold in a private pre-sale before the end of October. Another 30.528.000 tokens will be distributed to GAMEE users and used for promotional gifts.
In addition, Animoca Brands REVV token owners - used in cryptographic games like F1 Delta Time and MotoGP - can earn GAMEE tokens by adding Uniswap liquidity to a REVV-ETH pool. This promotion runs from today until November 12, with greater rewards offered to previous contributors.
In addition to the REVV, F1 Delta Time and MotoGP token, Animoca Brands is also the parent company behind the next blockchain game, The Sandbox, and has announced plans to bring the popular mobile game franchise Star Girl to the blockchain as well. Animoca Brands has also partnered with Atari to be the exclusive blockchain content provider for its new VCS video game console and will also publish encryption-infused versions of classic Atari games.
