Blockchain has been one of the most impactful technologies we have seen in the past decade. Several innovations have been driven by this technology, the most popular being Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies in general. Other blockchain-driven innovations include non-fungible tokens (NFT), decentralized finance (DeFi), blockchain as a service and many more.
However, the blockchain innovation that most of you may not have heard of is decentralized (blockchain-based) gaming. We interviewed Emmanuel Appiah – the founder of BRToken (a leading player in the decentralized gaming space), to discuss decentralized gaming and how BRToken intends to use this technology to help gamers earn more from their game. job.
In this interview, Emmanuel shared with us what BRToken is and why decentralized gaming is the future of online gaming.
He also shared with us the target users of BRToken and the benefits they will get using this platform. If you are an online gamer, you will know how to use BRToken to earn money by playing online and selling NFTs. Emmanuel has also gone ahead to share BRToken’s roadmap, including when they plan to officially launch the various apps on this platform.
Without going any further, let’s go straight to the interview!
In a few words, explain to the ordinary person what BattleRoyalToken is all about?
BattleRoyalToken or BRToken, in short, is an unauthorized ecosystem of Dapps or distributed apps that will allow any gamer around the world to make money online in an esports environment or environment. Without a doubt, in my mind, this will become the future of world esports tournaments.
There are a few personal reasons why I chose to work on a game project. By the start of the pandemic, the game had taken off, and although I was not a dedicated gamer myself, I did. my fair share. To move forward quickly, I saw an opportunity to create something for the benefit of young people dedicated to gambling and looking either to make it a legitimate career or to earn by playing.
I had the chance to speak with various very talented streamers with a decent audience. However, the struggle to win through online streaming is still present, and the likelihood of entering a lucrative and highly rewarding tournament was questionable, unless you were very famous or were part of an esports team. , although, as we know, the big tech giant earns billions of dollars. discount dollars only on game content.
So I saw an opportunity to solve an issue that could potentially change lives and bring more excitement to the everyday player. It was pretty clear to me that blockchain was the best way to solve this problem on a global scale.
How does this platform differ from existing gaming platforms?
BRToken is unique because of the various tools we offer that allow our users to maximize the potential to earn rewards while simply participating. We have combined multiple apps into one large ecosystem, which allows us to establish different revenue streams and, in turn, holds real real-world value rather than just a token.
Why use blockchain technology instead of centralized infrastructure?
I could sit here and give you a long list of reasons why blockchain technology is a better choice, but let’s stick to the obvious ones. One of the most relevant reasons we chose blockchain infrastructure over the other is trust. With traditional platforms, users have to trust someone they have never met to make sure tournament prizes are handed out honestly and accurately, and hope organizers aren’t having a bad day or having a bad day. not going through a financial crisis.
With blockchain, it’s transparent. There is an immutable smart contract that anyone can audit and make sure they are doing the job they are supposed to do on a regular basis. Another essential aspect is security. With traditional online tournament platforms, maintaining security can be difficult on the price or payout side, which in most cases is done by another separate app or gateway that takes the security away from you altogether.
I will also add that fiat transactions through third party gateways create a barrier and limit the number of participants due to the high fees and different conversion rates every day. In addition, there is no incentive to own or transact with fiat. With BRToken, you are rewarded for doing both. The list goes on. The benefits of building a platform for an esports environment on the blockchain are much more beneficial to the end user than traditionally; thus, the choice was clear.
Is this platform for gamers only? What are other BRToken use cases, if any?
To answer your question, no. The platform is for anyone looking to enter the blockchain space. BRToken provides several use cases. We can use BRTK, which is the underlying utility token of the platform, to participate in other Dapps such as our Dapp staking, which allows you to lock BRTK and hit more tokens, our AMM Dapp, which will allow users to provide stablecoins as a liquidity provider and in return earn BRTK.
Users can also purchase NFTs or, better put, digital collectibles with BRtoken on our NFT Cross-Chain Marketplace, which is a collaboration with Trybit slated for mid-2022.
When will BRToken officially launch and what should early adopters expect?
The goal is to launch our distributed applications in stages to test each Dapp separately. You can find it on our site, brtoken.org, on the section titled Roadmap 2021 in our documentation. The first app is our Staking Dapp which allows users to lock in tokens and earn BRTK, which will be released between August and September at the latest.
Dapp’s next release date will be between October and November 2021, and finally, for our 2021 roadmap, we’ll be launching the tournament platform in December at the end of the year.
How will players and other users gain from this platform?
Players can win by participating in tournaments and earning rewards through tournament prizes. Players can also earn by capturing their in-game “wow” moments and offering them for sale as an NFT. Players can also earn money through ‘Yield Farming’ by locking their BRTK on our dapp Staking or AMM for a set period of time and earning a yield on their initial locked tokens.
How will the gaming tournaments be organized on this platform?
Tournaments are grouped into categories per match. Thus, when a game is selected, there will be several tournaments available, depending on the skill level of each. This is to ensure a level playing field for all players. Tournament participants are grouped together based on several variables.
For example, some games will group users from a specific tournament by current in-game rank, timestamp rank, win rank, lose rank, and kill rank. That said, we look forward to hearing feedback from our users and optimizing tournaments to be the best fit for our players in the future.
What is the link between BRToken and NFTs?
The small sample of data we have collected on NFTs shows that they are a thing for the future. So we decided to take advantage of that for our players by allowing them to capture moments in the game, for example, a fantastic dunk in 2k, a brilliant goal on FIFA, the amazing Aaron Rogers throw in Madden NFL or the incredible wiping of the team. by a solo player.
All of these memorable moments can be minted and sold as NFTs, bringing more value to players and more enthusiasm for memories.
