The founders of gaming startup ORE-System got tired of looking for an off-the-shelf, easy-to-use blockchain/NFT platform for their users so they’ve created one themselves. Behold the ORE Ecosystem, which enables direct NFT integration for large-scale, next-generation gaming. Unlike the current market leader, which is built on the gas-heavy Ethereum network, ORE’s three-pronged ecosystem uses the far more efficient Binance Smart Chain.
In short, the ORE-System blockchain provides game developers with direct access to their gamers, as well as a single platform for Windows, Linux, and Mac Blockchain Gaming. Just as developers need content creators to design NFTs, gamers need content creators to fulfill their requests to individualize their digital persona. ORE-System delivers a streamlined, off-the-shelf, end-to-end solution for each participant.
What makes this product different is that while current gaming platforms directly impact the user experience and reduce revenue, ORE-System reduces the production time of blockchain based game development and increases the core user pool to integrate direct value to both gamers and content creators. Meanwhile, the ORE SDK allows a developer to fast-forward their gaming development by including the ORE-System infrastructure, which can be used as a template for transactional game functions.
ORE-System can also be used by developers as the core BSC integration for their next AAA game, while managing access to digital assets across platforms and games efficiently from a single interface.
ORE-System also features a “forge” for auctioning, selling, or buying game collectibles. Content Creators can leverage the ORE-Forge to generate content for licensing and purchase within future ORE supported games. This lifecycle provides a complete ecosystem for next generation gaming as well as NFTs.
ORE-System also integrates a proprietary token that’s interchangeable throughout all of the ORE supported games. In a single line of code, a game developer can seamlessly integrate the token as an in-game currency without any knowledge of how the blockchain works. From there, the developer can either sell NFTs directly to gamers or directly integrate them into their game with the SDK. The reduction of time, effort, and money should reduce the development lifecycle and increase profits for game developers.
Each token can hold a real-world value, which incentives gamers to collect, trade, and own the game items. The ORE ecosystem reduces the time it takes developers to actually build blockchain-based games, allowing game developers to pick which pieces work best for them. And because ORE provides the underlying technology and SDK, game developers don’t have to be blockchain developers to take advantage of the exploding popularity of NFTs and uNFTs–including audio files, music, tradeable items, goods or products, and more.
Even better, the token distributes 3% of each transaction back to individual holders. And if a gamer decides they no longer want to use their tokens, they can be sold back to the exchange, meaning that the gamer’s money is no longer hostage to the game. ORE’s creators have said they hope that this free market approach will not only bolster the increased value of the token, but will raise the value of each developer’s game items in turn.
Finally, content creators like musicians, artists, sound engineers, and 3D modelers can use an innovative new licensing model for digital in-game assets. Within the ORE ecosystem, NFT licenses can be traded between developers, game studios, and gamers alike, while the content creator receives the associated royalty fee for the life of the NFT. Game creators can decide if the NFT is only available for a single license or can be traded freely. Full control of the licensing and pricing is provided to each content creator.
The ORE System maintains and manages the blockchain smart contracts, offloading the risk and maintenance, while ensuring uptime and support. Tokens are protected from arbitrary or malicious modifications by requiring three of the six managing member wallets to review and accept changes to the contract.
ORE-System’s creators say they will soon be releasing a video game as a proof-of-concept. The goal is to build a community like XBox Live, where developers are creating content while Apple or Microsoft supports both the ecosystem and the platform. ORE’s next steps are the creation of a gateway for blockchain gaming and a next-generation licensing model for gamers, content creators, and game developers that will further reduce developer time, increase content creators’ revenue, and provide gamers with a better gaming experience. Subscription services are available for developers, and training opportunities will be provided for gamers who want to learn how to make their own content.
