When you play a game that is powered by QUDO, the time you play is reported by the game to the QUDO rewarding mechanism. Every 10 minutes a new block is created, containing the activity of games being played. Depending on the amount of gamers playing the game and other factors (e.g.: game's stake), both game developer and respective players will be rewarded with freshly minted QUDOs, put into circulation as network rewards.
As you progress in a game powered by QUDO, unlocking achievements can come with a bonus in QUDO coins, offered by the game you are playing. Every time you earn an achievement reward, a small QUDO notification will appear letting you know that your pockets are a little bit heavier with QUDO coins that are now yours.
Each game has its own pointing system, but it can have a correlation with QUDO rewarding system and offer you QUDO coins every time you reach a new Highscore. So if you keep playing QUDO powered games, not only you are having fun but you're also rewarded with a cryptocurrency for your efforts and performance.
Gamers get rewarded for their activity, achievements and performance.
No fees, fully transparent and decentralized.
Coins are spendable across all participating games.
Built on top of an EOS.IO based protocol, running on Telos network.
Easy integration into any Unity based game. Fits seamlessly into the gaming experience and connects your game to the Blockchain. Is Unity not your game engine? Don’t worry, more engines will be supported soon. Want to help supporting other Industry Standard Game Engines? Contact us!
Game Developers are rewarded with tokens that can be used to increase their game visibility, get help on development, among other benefits, available on a Built-In marketplace of adhering Services.
Players earn coins by playing a game and can spend them in any other game thanks to the cross-game architecture of QUDO and its underlying blockchain technology. Smaller games can now join forces using QUDO and have a fair chance for success.
Allows the player to buy in-game items and additional content, avoiding complicated transactions and fees through traditional means such as Credit Card, Paypal and others. This results in secure, fraud-free, faster and more reliable transactions.
Game Developers are able to monetize their games without the need for intrusive advertisement models. By spending their QUDOs, Game Developers will be able to use services (e.g.) to improve their game and respective visibility, reaching a wider audience.
By adopting QUDO as a standard currency for the gaming industry, the interaction between users is facilitated allowing for the creation of game communities such as teams and guilds, but also providing benefits for content creators and other services.
QUDO tokens will soon tradeable for other cryptocurrencies via crypto exchanges.
QUDO token holders are planned to have the chance of being included in the decision making and governance of the ecosystem.
Our milestones we are going towards rapidly to achieve
On 13th March, we at Blockbastards celebrated our 2nd birthday and, to commemorate, we launched the Alpha version of QUDO. We will take this opportunity to integrate some games from our founding members in order to polish a few details before moving to the main net. It’s already possible to test QUDO system by joining Blox alpha test group, the first game fully integrated with QUDO rewarding mechanism.
We are really excited to announce a partnership that will revolutionize gaming on the blockchain. Now, thanks to Qudo proof-of-gameplay rewarding mechanism running on the Telos blockchain, unity games can join the blockchain and have token-based features.
QUDO will be announcing the already confirmed adherent games in a series of interviews with their game developers. Stay tuned on our social media and to the interviews shared on Medium If you are a game developer with a quality game wishing to join, let us know before the QUDO main net launch and get the chance to be added to the founding partners list.
QUDO is a rewarding mechanism for the gaming industry, where gameplay time and performance are rewarded with a cryptocurrency (QUDO). By doing so, players get increasingly motivated for playing adherent games, which is a great advantage for these games when compared to just being available on traditional marketplaces. Game developers are also rewarded according to their stake in QUDO whenever their game is being played. As they accumulate QUDO tokens, they will be able to hire affiliated services, like featured spots on marketplaces, media content & coverage, 2D/3D assets, game development & art freelancing, among others. Everybody wins.
At the moment, QUDO hasn't yet launched on the Telos Network Main Net, so QUDO tokens aren't available yet. Upon launch on the Main Net ( see roadmap above ), QUDO tokens will be distributed according to the Block Reward Token Distribution model described above. Later in 2020 , we will eventually get listed on multiple exchanges, allowing tokens to be purchased by the public. In the meantime, if you want early access to QUDO tokens, get in contact with us.
By default, you earn QUDO tokens by playing adherent games. Inside each game, you should have the QUDO icon on the main menu, where after logging in you have access to a lot of features including account details, rewards earned across games, token balance and history, sending/receiving QUDO, etc. There is also a web app, we call it the QUDO Dashboard, which is already available for all users, where Gamers, Game Developers, Service Providers and other QUDO Token Holders have full control over their account and QUDO tokens. There, any user is able to analyse game activity and respective rewards in QUDO tokens, but also send & receive these QUDO tokens to other users.
You can manage your tokens (check balance, history, send/receive, get account details, etc.) via the QUDO Dashboard (web app) or even inside any adherent game - there is a QUDO menu on the main menu of each game. Also, as QUDO runs on TELOS (EOS.IO protocol), any TELOS compatible wallet should allow you to run basic transactional operations. We recommend you have a look at Wombat or Scatter.
Players play games because it is fun and they spend good moments playing. We don't want to take away any of that. We just want to be considered as "the cherry on top of the cake" for gamers. So, while playing, players will earn a prize in the form of a cryptocurrency - QUDO - for the time they spend playing. The more they play, the more they earn, always, as it is a QUDO core feature. Also, it is up for each game developer to offer QUDO tokens as rewards for their player's performance and/or score as a game mechanic of their own. QUDO tokens can be saved in your own wallets, sent across the network to other users, and easily used to purchase in-game assets and features, without the need for traditional money via credit cards.
You may have noticed that we refer to QUDO crypto assets as tokens. We could refer to them as coins, which is more easily understandable by the general audience but we wouldn't be totally correct. In fact, each QUDO token is a coin (a means of payment), but with a wider functionality other than just 'digital cash'. For instance, game developers need to stake a minimum amount of tokens to be considered eligible for publishing their games in the QUDO ecosystem. Also, in the future, high QUDO stake holders are planned to have voting powers (governance votes). But calling QUDO coins to QUDO tokens is okay enough in general terms.
Yes! One of the benefits of QUDO is that you can spend them in any adherent game instead of just being credits limited to one game, publisher or marketplace. Once you have QUDO tokens, you can spend them wherever they are accepted.
Most Indy Game Developers and Small Studios are driven by the passion of creating games. It is thrilling to see their game being played and appreciated by others. However, most of these games have a small number of active players and hardly show up in marketplaces as valid option players. With QUDO, it is also our mission to help Game Developers in a fair way, where Indy Game Developers and Small Studios get a fair chance to showcase their game while being rewarded for it, with QUDO coins. Thus, when Game Developers integrate their game with QUDO and setup their rewarding model, their game will start rewarding players with QUDO. Game Developers will also be rewarded according to their games activity and stake, accumulating QUDO which can be spent on affiliated services like featured spots on marketplaces, media content & coverage, 2D/3D assets, game development & art freelancing, among others. We are devoted to help you while learning about Game Development community needs, so feel free to get in touch and ask for help or give suggestions.
Integrating QUDO in your game is very easy if you use Unity (compatibility with other game engines is under development). You just need to download the almost 'plug and play' QUDO SDK and connect your game to the blockchain with just a few lines of code. We've produced a couple of videos covering all the steps needed - check them here. Basically, you need to register yourself as Game Developer at QUDO Dashboard Web App and stake a minimum amount of QUDO as guarantee of commitment for the game you will be launching - the more you stake, the more tokens you earn when your game is being played. Similarly, the amount of QUDO Tokens you earn to be spent in adhering services vary depending on the amount staked. For more information on how QUDO Network Rewards work for you, check the diagram above.
If Unity is not your game engine, it is also possible to integrate with QUDO, but your job will be more difficult as you need to develop your own client-side web services. The good side of this? Help us on porting our current SDK to other industry standard game engines and we will reward you for that. If this is interesting to you, contact us to discuss the details! It is also worth mentioning that we've started the compatibility of QUDO with another industry standard game engine. Can you guess which one? :)
Staking is a simple form of commitment for non-standard users (Game Developers and Service Providers). In order to prevent spamming the QUDO ecosystem with non-active Game Developer and Service Provider accounts we set a minimum amount of QUDO tokens that these users need to have in their possession. If you're one of these users, you won't be paying for anything, just reserving your QUDO tokens as a proof-of-commitment for your game or service to remain active. The moment Game Developers decide to unlink their game(s) from QUDO, or the moment Service Providers give up from listing their service(s) on the QUDO marketplace for developers, these Staked QUDO tokens become available in their wallet. Don't worry, tokens remain yours, they are just 'locked' under a transparent smart contract on the Blockchain and never leave the possession of their owner (you), being possible to unlock them whenever you want.
Until QUDO launches on the TELOS Main Net (
), we are welcoming Game Developers, Service Providers and other Key Partners
as Founding Partners, which will have special benefits. Founding Partners are
important for us because they will help make sure that QUDO is a success.
Either by providing valuable advisory, being a valuable game or service from the
very beginning - testing features and believing in the project before it is an actual
success - or by providing support to the QUDO team in various topics we need support,
these partners will prove themselves very valuable to QUDO and for that reason we will
be very happy to include them in the list of Founding Partners.
A Founding Partner will be categorised into one among of multiple levels (categories). Depending on the help the partner brings to the QUDO Project from the very beginning, a level is assigned. Each level benefits from a certain amount of QUDO periodical rewards, as part of the Network Rewards ( described in the diagram above ). Depending on the level, a Founding Partner will either benefit from periodical rewards continuously until the end of token distribution (estimated to not end before 2039), until a certain moment in time, or (in case of games and services) until the game or service gets delisted from the marketplace.
Do you think you have what it takes to be a QUDO Founding Partner? Don't take too long deciding, because time is already short. Contact us!
Integrating and using QUDO with your games is absolutely free. Free for you, free for whoever plays and also free for gaming service providers to be listed in the QUDO Dashboard. Our aim is for QUDO to be the enabler of a fair gaming ecosystem - if it works out, we all win!
Service Providers (Marketplaces, Game Assets Providers, 2D/3D Artists, Software Developers, Writers, etc.) are key resources for the success of a game. We want to incentivise all games to hire services that most of them wouldn't hire before QUDO due to lack of funds. To do so, QUDO periodically deposits part of the newly generated coins that are offered to Game Developers into a special wallet/account created for each game they have active. This special wallet limits the spending of these funds to QUDO Service Providers (you!), incentivising Game Developers to improve their games with services like yours. If you consider yourself an added value for the creation, distribution or promotion of a game, apply for becoming a Service Provider at QUDO. To do that, you will need to access QUDO Dashboard and stake a minimum amount of QUDO (check the other FAQ item to see what this means for you). In the meantime, feel free to reveal your interest about becoming a QUDO Service Provider and you can possibly become a QUDO Founding Partner (check the other FAQ item to see what this means for you).
