Token Economics

Our philosophy towards the QuizBeat blockchain aspect is to mix best of both fiat currency as well a cryptocurrency world together to create potentially the first mass market consumer product which promotes upsides of a token to millions of customers.

Design for mass market & the average Joe

  • Gaming activity, jackpots, prizes need to be in fiat currency to be easily understood by the average Joe and to allow simple deposit and cashouts. This does not mean that there can´t be games with the token being used as a buy-in or prize pool but simplicity demands fiat highly visible.

Use blockchain technology where it really makes sense

  • We are a platform for different games, both new innovations we invented as well as existing games such as casino.
  • Some of our own games will heavily rely on smart contracts and our token such as our decentralized Live Trivia Game whilst other games such as the Sport Quiz don´t need smart contracts or will be moved on-chain when blockchain scaling becomes a non-issue.
  • We will release more innovative games on the platform which require further smart contract usage over time.

Maximize Token visibility and token demand

  • Independent of any token utility within a specific gametype, all games are tied together under a central VIP treasure chest system. If a player plays a traditional casino game such as roulette, his gaming activity will always lead to earning treasure chests with a very high token utility.
  • We take learning from free to play games as well as poker & sportsbetting VIP systems to achieve a high visibility and high demand for token usage. VIP customers will get higher rewards/rakeback using tokens similar to how Binance is leveraging their token usage.

Token Utility

The QUIZ token is designed with the goal to make it a highly visible and heavily used utility. We combine learning from various other industries into the QUIZ token.

Wallet

Play with QUIZ tokens

Players are able to use the QUIZ token as a buy-in for non-fiat games. We will incentivise the usage of the QUIZ token with better rewards in comparison to fiat. Fiat currency as a start is important for TV advertising, conversion rates and ease of use of the platform as a starting point.

Extra Life

High visibility with Extra Life

Players can gain significant value in buying an Extra Life in our trivia game show to continue playing after a single wrong answer.

Tip

Twitch style donations with additional benefits

Participants can donate QUIZ tokens to live game show streamers like on Twitch. On top part of the donation is automatically being added to the price pool of the game show. Thus, both the host as well as all participants benefit from any QUIZ donation.

Unlock

Free-to-play monetisation incorporated

Free to play games, especially on mobile are using virtual currency to monetise their products. They encourage players to buy virtual currency to save time or progress faster. We took this mechanic and incorporated it into unlocking treasure chests.

Auto-Boost

Increased rewards for VIPs

We know from the sportsbetting & especially poker industry, that the majority of revenues are generated by high volume players. These players are very price sensitive and seek for the best VIP rewards. Our treasure chest reward system provides more cashback when QUIZ tokens are used to boost it. This is similar to the successful Binance “save fees” BNB token approach.

Escrow

Escrow to ensure game integrity

QUIZ tokens are necessary as an escrow to increase game integrity. Game shows price pools are guaranteed, game show hosts or Oracles might need to deposit tokens into escrow to prevent wrong-doing.

Token Demand Generation

Our business model is to create a solid mass market product, attract tons of customers and maximize visibility & usage of the QUIZ token to these customers.

Mass market marketing focus and user growth

  • Product designed to provide the average Joe a great experience (read more about game design decisions in our white paper).
  • High virality and user growth due to social Sport Quiz with Friends and decentralized HQ Live Trivia Game Show.
  • High lifetime values via gambling in regulated markets for high marketing ROIs.
  • Fiat currency approach.
  • Entering American and Asian markets legally as skill game.

Maximize visibility of QUIZ token to customers

  • Everything you do on platform and every game you play leads to a Treasure Chest reward with high token utility.
  • Game specific features such as buying Extra Lives or tipping game show hosts similar to Twitch works only with QUIZ tokens and is highly visible to all players.
  • Small amounts of tokens will be rewarded in promotional activities and treasure chests to ensure all players experience the utility upsides.

Maximize QUIZ token usage

  • Optimize for number of players using token with recreational player friendly utility such as buying Extra Life or unlocking chests. Taking proven models from free to play industry.
  • Optimize amount of tokens being used by providing clear monetary incentives targeting high volume players/VIPs such as increased rewards/cashback. Experience shows that majority of revenues are being generated by VIPs/whales which are also price sensitive for VIP rewards. Our treasure chest system ensures that even a pure casino player on our platform would be incentivised to use tokens to receive higher VIP rewards playing on our platform creating token buying demand.
