Bitjoy is a decentralized platform and token-based protocol that incentivizes new models of interactive gameplay between live game streamers and their viewers.
Using Blockchain, digital tokens, and smart contracts, Bitjoy enhances interaction by creating economic incentives within the game experience and backing them with real-world, tokenized value. That value can be safely
transmitted, aggregated and acted upon by the game code in real-time.
Lack of Interaction
Today, interaction between the streamer and viewer is limited to text and voice chat, emotes, donation widgets, and fragmented reward systems.
Engagement between the live game streamer and their viewing audience is a largely unexplored facet - especially within the context of the game world. In addition, limited means of communication during
live streams and slow, expensive payment processors has prevented innovation in real-time value transfer and ownership amongst players.
Bitjoy Improves Engagement
Underpinning the Bitjoy Platform is a token called the “POWER” token. During gameplay, viewers send POWER tokens to cause real-time changes in gameplay and the live stream.
POWER tokens are much more than a
means of transaction - they are a form of collateral that represents a viewer’s stake in communal gameplay mechanics - opening the door for new economic incentives, new types of cooperative gameplay, the ability for the viewers
to earn based on the player’s performance, and much more.
Communal Gameplay Mechanics
Streamers and viewers interact through new types of community-wide game mechanics that can involve entire viewing audiences. Some examples include:
- Game item enhancements and power ups
- Cooperative play scenarios
- Competition between streamer and viewers
- Wagering on game outcome, player achievements and other game events
- Community-driven games / viewer-only games (i.e., no streamer at all)
- Investing in players with tokens to earn loot when player earns loot
- Creation of non-fungible, powered game items that can be sold/rented to others
- Rewards for viewership and loyalty
Viewers are the new Players
Game developers can reach and build for a brand-new addressable market - the live game stream viewer.
Connecting socially via game walk-throughs, cooperative play sessions, and innovative, community wide game mechanics, gamers get the chance to bond over the gameplay they love in a setting they feel
