2B3D Whitepaper

Play to Earn

2B3D Is tapping into the massive US$300B gaming industry which is seeing ongoing rapid expansion

Global gaming industry exceeded US$300B in 2021, with 2.7B gamers worldwide

Global gaming industry size

Key growth drivers

Widespread adoption of smartphones globally bringing in new players

  • Global smartphone penetration rate exceeded ~78% in 2020 and widespread adoption of smartphones is bringing in new players to the gaming world; and mobile will continue to enable new opportunities within gaming
  • 400m new gamers expected within the next few years

Growth of games as social media

  • Social aspect is an increasingly key aspect to gamers’ overall experiences; according to a survey by Accenture, 84% of respondents felt that video games help them connect with people who share their interests
  • Gaming industry has adapted by increasingly emphasizing gaming’s social dimension and developing games-as-a-platform, driving new levels of engagement and revenue streams

Covid-19 accelerated demand

  • Covid-19 has further driven demand for online gaming for social interactions, immersive experiences for escapism, and collaborative working in virtual environments which also drives further adoption of VR

Blockchain gaming segment is on the rise with the boom in decentralized finance (DeFi), and 2B3D will capitalize on this growth trend

Application of blockchain technology to gaming

Key benefits for players

  • Digital property rights: Through the creation of NFTs facilitated by blockchain technology, in-game purchases transform an expense into an asset, creating actual secondary value from these purchases.
  • Increased financialization: players can use their virtual items like traditional assets as collateral for usage in DeFi. (e.g. a player could secure financing for their next battle pass by lending out their high-end weapon)

Key benefit for developers

  • Healthier game economies: Opportunity to monetize more players vs. the free-to-play model where, on average, less than 2% of players actually purchase in-game items. The ability to monetize the long tail of users comes from a deeper willingness to spend, driven by the benefits for players (e.g. digital asset ownership)

Rise of successful blockchain games

Axie Infinity

  • Axie Infinity is among the biggest blockchain games; it is a Pokémon-inspired blockchain-based game that allows players to earn income in the form of tokens and other rewards by breeding, battling and trading digital pets called Axies
  • Axie Infinity has seen average revenue per owner (ARPU) over $100, as compared to Pokemon Go’s ARPU of $1 to $10.
  • Axie Infinity’s governance token AXS is also one of the best performing digital assets year-to-date, posting a 431% price increase over the 30 days period in July 2021 and a 7089% growth since January 2021
  • During the second week of July, Axie Infinity generated more protocol revenue than Ethereum and Bitcoin (~US$36 million)
