The Bitcoin SV (BSV) blockchain is able to manage any aspect of gaming, from tracking every little move of the game to being the gamers ‘preferred type of transaction. This can be true in the gambling world, but SatoPlay also proves it works in casual gaming. SatoPlay builds on momentum by announcing its first third-party title, Leap Day Birds.
The casual BSV-based gaming platform was introduced in September 2019 and had already released two games in December of that year. Leap Day Bird, which was created by Momo Game Studios, marks the debut of SatoPlay as an open platform.
SatoPlay is located in China’s Guangdong, and was founded by Gu Lu. Although he had plenty of experience making games, when he saw the potential for growth on the BSV blockchain, he decided to start Sato Play and take advantage of its new potential business models.
“Our goal is not just a few trendy games,” Lu sid. “Our goal is to create an open gaming platform for more games to launch and for gamers to have fun. Existing developers can swiftly deploy their products on the BSV network through SatoPlay and improve their game’s fairness as well as giving users micropayment rewards. To further streamline the launch process for third-party developers, SatoPlay has built up the login system and in-game purchase channels and provides onchain processing for all parts of a game.”
Player scores are rated on the BSV chain on the SatoPlay website, and gamers can purchase additional game add-ons using BSV. Gamers may also be rewarded for their play by attaining high scores and regular rankings, all immutably written for verification purposes to the blockchain.
Satoplay has the numbers for everyone in the gaming business who needs evidence that it does work. In the short 3 months since the first games were released, registered users have shot past 14,000 and users unfamiliar with BSV have easily accessed the platform using both WeChat Pay and Ali Pay.
And interestingly, SatoPlay hasn’t launched either on Google Play or on the Apple Store yet, but over the next few months it will. When that’s completed, the company plans to explore how the BSV blockchain can empower third-party collaboration contracts to be developed, enabling third-party developers to benefit from their apps easily and transparently.
The company noted in its press release that third-party developers can easily enter their platform by developing independent applications on Unity or Unreal Engine, or through web apps built on either Cocos or Laya.
What lessons can be learnt by this by the gambling sector? Not only has SatoPlay shown that a gaming experience with the BSV can perform very well in managing games, but that consumers can easily catch on to the digital currency as a purchase tool. And third party developers can quickly team up by eliminating BSV code as an entry-barrier to programmers.
This may not be a success story in gambling but it is a straightforward blueprint for how the gaming industry will achieve its own achievements. BSV proves to be a blockchain able to turn any undertaking.
