Vertically integrated gaming ecosystem

There are a variety of verticals that are key to making the MC Ecosystem a plug-and-play ecosystem for gamers and game developers, such as:
  1. 1.
    Gaming infrastructure. The Beam network and its correlating SDK provides the key infrastructure for game developers to launch games that implement game related blockchain elements. Via the SDK, the blockchain experience of the gamers may be abstracted away so that the gamers can focus on what they do best, i.e. to play the game.
  2. 2.
    Games and gaming studios. In order to have a vibrant gaming community, gaming studios need to build and launch games within the MC Ecosystem, namely on the Beam network. Each and every transaction on Beam requires $BEAM to cover transaction fees.
  3. 3.
    Marketplace. A NFT or other smart contract based collectibles marketplace (e.g. Sphere) enables gamers to efficiently be able to acquire game related assets pertaining to various games, peer-to-peer on-chain. $BEAM is used as a means of payment for NFTs on Sphere.
  4. 4.
    DEX/AMM. A decentralized and autonomous crypto trading protocol (e.g. BeamSwap) enables players to easily acquire game related fungible tokens (typically in-game currencies) peer-to-peer on-chain. $BEAM tokenholders may through governance vote to adjust fee parameters pertaining to BeamSwap.
