ZEBEDEE & VIKER Launch New Games
ZEBEDEE, a bitcoin-powered payment processing system for the gaming industry, and VIKER, a mobile games studio pioneering in the play-to-earn space, have announced the launch of two additional games in their repertoire of Bitcoin titles.
Bitcoin Chess (iOS and Android) and Bitcoin Scratch (iOS and Android) are both available now on the two respective app stores. The firms have previously paired up and released other bitcoin-powered games, including Sudoku and Solitaire.
How Players Earn Money From Games
While Bitcoin Chess is pretty self-explanatory, Bitcoin Scratch is an even more approachable concept where players receive packs of scratch cards with a chance to earn Bitcoin if the cards hold the right combos on them. Essentially, players receive a revenue share from the game which means that VIKER splits what they’re earning from the game with the player. This creates an engaging experience leading to better retention which ultimately makes the game more profitable despite its revenue sharing model. These rewards are not large amounts as players only earn a few cents per session which is what makes this concept sustainable.
Why ZEBEDEE & VIKER Partner Up
Dan Beasley, co-founder of VIKER stated why his company would choose to work with ZEBEDEE by implementing their payments platform into their games saying “Ultimately implementing rewards with ZEBEDEE’s platform isn’t about players earning money it’s about creating an interesting experience…it feels great to earn these tiny rewards regardless if it won’t materially impact most people’s lives but at same time it’s real money you can earn just for having fun“.
No Specific Target Audience
Ben Cousens Chief Strategy Officer at ZEBEDEE explained that they weren’t necessarily trying to focus on Bitcoiners as their sole audience stating „These games have massive global audience that mostly doesn’t care about bitcoin…It is extremely easy to set up a ZEBEDEE account, connect it to VIker’s game snd withdraw bitcoin“.
The two gaming companies are already preparing for their next launch which will be even more impactful as they will be adding in famous franchises into their portfolio
