Value Proposition

The Problem

  • Despite the global gaming market being valued at $203 billion and projected to reach $314 billion by 2026, casual gamers are not able to extract any value beyond entertainment from their gameplay. Content creators and streamers may have the potential to earn income through monetization, sponsorships, and donations, but building a strong community takes significant time and effort.
  • Additionally, traditional gaming operates on centralized servers controlled by game developers and administrators, resulting in gamers not having ownership over their account data, in-game items, history, and achievements. This leaves gamers with no return on their purchases/microtransactions when they move on to a new game.

The Solution

The solution offered by WAGMI Defense is to bridge the gap between traditional mobile gaming and the benefits of Web3 technology. By implementing the use of NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, players are able to truly own their in-game items and have the ability to trade, rent, and sell them on the open market.
Additionally, WAGMI Defense offers a mobile experience, making it accessible to the majority of casual gamers who prefer to play on their mobile devices.
The game also provides a smooth transition for players who are new to the world of Web3 and blockchain technology, by educating them on the benefits and potential of NFTs.

Mobile App Store Experience

The vast majority of web2 gamers are not interested in learning how to create a DeFi wallet, buy tokens or deal with anything related to cryptocurrency. In fact, that is the number one barrier keeping traditional gamers from playing Web3 games.
To overcome this, WAGMI Defense will be available for download on the official app stores, and will not be requiring any crypto or defi wallets to play the game.
Available in app stores Q1 2023
Players can download the game and create a guest account to experience the game for free. After playing the game, if they choose to continue, they can create an account with a one-click social sign-in method and purchase a Card Pack in the in-game Shop to unlock the full game experience. This purchase can be completed with either FIAT or cryptocurrency.
These cards, now owned by the player, can be leveled up, traded, and even sold on the secondary marketplaces, providing an additional layer of value and engagement for the players.
However, players will not need to have or create a defi wallet in order to obtain ownership of their in-game items. Upon account creation, a custodial wallet (WAGMI Wallet) is created and assigned to every player, which will be used to store all in-game items, or players can choose to use their external wallets if they prefer. This makes it easy for players to access, manage and transact their in-game items, regardless of their prior knowledge of blockchain.
As players progress through the game, they will learn how to manage their WAGMI Wallet through educational drip campaigns, which will teach them how to upgrade, trade, lend, and even sell their in-game items. These campaigns will allow players to understand the full potential of their in-game items, without the need to have a deep understanding of the underlying technology.

FIAT Micro-Transactions

The titans of recent Web2 games such as Supercell, Niantic, Epic Games, and PubG, based the success of their releases on micro-transactions and targeting the casual gamer. Following in their footsteps, WAGMI Games has adopted a similar business model while introducing the element of in-game item ownership into the mix.
Recent statistics indicate that only a small percentage of gamers have an understanding of or have even heard of crypto gaming. As a result, if the transition of Web3 gaming to app stores were solely dependent on crypto purchases, it would likely have limited success.
The core element of Web3 games is the opportunity for in-game item ownership, and WAGMI Games aims to be at the forefront by enabling players to purchase in-game NFTs using traditional currency and popular payment methods, such as Google Pay, Apple Pay, and PayPal. The company's strategy for achieving mass adoption involves combining crypto gaming and traditional gaming into a hybrid model, making it easy for players to transition into the world of Web3.
In summary, the success of WAGMI Defense is not solely dependent on the adoption of cryptocurrency, but rather, it is closely linked to the overall success of the game and the company.

Our Strategy

IMMUTABLE-X Partnership
Picking the right network to deploy a project is crucial and Ethereum's recent shift to proof-of-stake combined with the network's overall security made it a logical choice to launch WAGMI Defense on ERC-20. However, the cost of performing transactions (gas fees) on the Ethereum network is still high and volatile, making it difficult for crypto games where the value of in-game items is low.
One solution to this problem is to use Immutable-X and its revolutionary technology, which allows users to mint (purchase) and transfer in-game items (NFTs) on their Layer-2 Ethereum Network without paying any gas fees. This enables users to:
  • maintain self-custody of their NFTs without sacrificing the security of Ethereum’s main net
  • create instant, near gas-less and carbon-neutral minting of digital items
  • avoid network traffic or failed transactions

Aggressive Google Marketing
WAGMI Games plans to launch an aggressive advertising campaign through Google Adwords to promote their first title, WAGMI Defense. The campaign's goal is to convert traditional, non-crypto gamers into Web3 players.
The company has gained access to powerful marketing tools through a whitelisted Google account, and has the support of Google, who will use WAGMI Defense as a case study for successful marketing of a Web3 game to traditional gamers.
With the expertise and resources of Google, the WAGMI Games team is confident that their marketing efforts will not hinder the mass adoption of their game.
