Harnessing Gamers’ Computers for Worldwide Computing Network with Blockchain
Blockchain start-up FREED (TVX Games Studio) is preparing the launch of its open platform for the monetization of online games through integrating gamers’ computers into a global grid computing network. The platform is designed to provide game developers, game publishers, and game platform owners with a tool for monetizing non-paying players. The participants of the system will benefit by making computing resources of their personal computers available.
Within the FREED platform, game publishers and developers will be able to connect their game projects to a distributed computing system. In return for providing the idle computing resources of their gamers, publishers will be compensated by customers — buyers of the resources — in the system’s currency, the FREEDcoin token. Game publishers, in their turn, will compensate gamers in game-related valuables: objects or in-game currencies. In doing this, publishers will generate a guaranteed income and players will gain free access to games and in-game content in exchange for using their computers outside of their gaming sessions.
