Although the gaming industry is one of the most lucrative ones, crypto-based games that allow users to play and earn are comparatively newer. Gamers do not need a lot in return for the time and skill they invest in these games. Additionally, as a lot of people around the world have limited entertainment options, it is not feasible for them to download high-end games. Developers, on the other hand, face difficulties in making revenue in the midst of stiff competition and market costs.
WAM is a play-to-earn platform that intends to solve these issues. The platform is simple and does not have any complicated mechanisms that would confuse players. WAM.app publishes simple, skill-based games or hyper-casual games that do not need any previous knowledge or a lot of time.
What is WAM?
WAM is a play-to-earn social gaming platform that lets users participate in skill-based tournaments in highly engaging online games in order to win crypto rewards in $WAM and NFTs.
The platform aims to adopt mass crypto adoption into its ecosystem and was launched in 2020 by the Romanian company, Digitap. Within the first 3 months of its launch, WAM was accessed by 3.5 million players around the world.
WAM was inspired by real-life amateur sports tournaments that see millions of fans competing in different sports to have fun and spend quality time with friends and family.
Some of the main features of WAM2EARN include:
- Develop-to-earn: This feature allows indie game developers to publish their games and get WAM users to generate revenue from the published games by playing them in tournaments. Developers will also get to sell a tokenized version of their games as NFTs to the fan base, ensuring that initial revenue is generated for the developer while the community gets to support their favorite game creators.
- Play-to-earn: By joining tournaments of games, users on the WAM platform get to make money easily. Every tournament has an entry fee and lasts between 12 to 120 hours, this gives everyone an equal chance to get up on the leaderboard. Every player will have unlimited chances to get a high score and with in-game revivals, they can continue from the last score, a maximum of 3 times in a row.
- Own-to-earn: WAM lets users own games, avatars, nicknames, and a lot more.
- Promote-to-earn: WAM is looking to lead the way into the permissionless promotion of products and services. Marketers on the platform will be able to promote either individual tournaments or the entire WAM platform through sending traffic and converting sent users into active members of the WAM community. Every conversion and revenue will be settled using smart contracts, allowing everyone to make money by promoting WAM.
