Business Model

Squad RPG Powered by Blockchain

A Squad RPG game offers inherent synergy between the RPG genre and the transformative capabilities of blockchain technology. The foundational elements of a Squad RPG, namely character collection and squad formation, serve as ideal canvases for blockchain-based enhancements.

  • Player Ownership: In a Squad RPG, players can summon, collect and customize various items such as characters, weapons, and accessories. By utilizing blockchain, these assets can be tokenized, allowing players to have verifiable ownership and the ability to trade or sell them outside the game ecosystem. This creates a vibrant player-driven game economy and enhances the value and rarity of unique items.

  • Provably Rare and Unique Items: Developers can create limited edition or unique NFT items with specific attributes or abilities that cannot be replicated. Such scarcity and verifiability enhance the gameplay experience by providing players with sought-after and collectible items, fostering a sense of achievement and exclusivity within the game.

  • Secure and Transparent Trading Marketplaces: Players can easily buy, sell, and trade their NFT assets directly with other players, eliminating the need for centralized intermediaries. Smart contracts on the blockchain ensure transparent and tamper-proof transactions, reducing the risk of fraud or scams.

  • Player-driven Game economy and Rewards: A blockchain-based Squad RPG can empower players by providing opportunities for them to earn rewards through their in-game activities, such as completing quests and achieving milestones. This incentive drives player engagement and can attract a broader audience to the genre.

Ecosystem and Growth

Guild of Guardians is a free-to-play mobile game that operates the game as a service. A range of applications and features can sit on top of the core game, which we expect will be developed over time (by the community or us). Some potential ideas include:

  • NFT trading marketplace

  • Community guides, newsletters and analysis

  • Esports leaderboards competitions, guilds and rewards

  • Social hub and gathering for like-minded players

Guild of Guardians earns revenue in three ways:

  • Primary Sales: Guild of Guardians may sell NFTs directly to customers through a website. These NFTs will be usable in the mobile game and can give players access to new strategies within the game. Examples include Guardians, Pets, Guilds and Energy Boosters

  • Secondary Sales (trading fees): Guild of Guardians takes a % royalty fee from all secondary transactions of NFTs. This allows GOG to align our incentives with the community.

  • In-App Purchases: In-app purchases will be available for players within the Guild of Guardians game. These purchases will focus on meeting different needs the player might have. Some of these purchases may have the potential to be transformed into NFTs if the player chooses to engage with in-game activities. We want to allow players to make progress on their journey with web2 whilst guiding them towards the more challenging, but ultimately more efficient and rewarding web3 experience.
