YAY Games Roadmap: A detailed plan for the fully decentralized gaming marketplace.
YAY is the gaming marketplace that the cryptosphere needs. It narrows the gap between gaming and Decentralized Finance (DeFi) industries, rewarding users for playing the games they love and were already playing for free.
Blockchain technology allows us to build a decentralized incentivization system for gamers across the world through various methods. We will leverage the tech to bring rewards to our gamers and provide value for token holders.
We still have a long road ahead and a lot to do in order to bring together a revolutionary gaming marketplace and with our Initial Decentralized Offering (IDO) events nearing closer, we wanted to give the community a deeper look into our roadmap. There is still much to be done, and 2021 will surely be a challenging year. One that we are looking forward to.
Q2 2021 — Private sale and alpha stage
The second quarter of 2021 will possibly be one of the most important milestones for the YAY Games Project. Our private and public sales will take place, allowing users to join before the Initial Decentralized offering (IDO). Between July and August, we will launch the $YAY token on PancakeSwap.
The first version of our marketplace will be released for players in July, containing the core trademarks. At first, we will launch prediction games, challenging users to forecast the future of cryptocurrency price movements within a certain time range, starting with BTC, ETH, and ADA (up or down) in 4 hour periods.
Q3 2021 — Marketplace release and CEX listings
Once we are done with the first version of the marketplace, we will focus on introducing more games into the ecosystem. At this stage, we will allow developers and companies to list their own games. When doing so, we will also host their Initial Game Mining (IGM) and farming programs which we will delve into further in future blog posts.
In the third quarter, we will also begin listing $YAY on centralized exchanges (CEX’s) and step up our loyalty programs, providing additional rewards to our community and token holders.
Q4 2021 — Competitions and NFTs
In the last quarter of 2021, we will introduce multiple tournaments for different games. To ensure users can earn extra $YAY by playing and challenging other gamers while doing so.
At this stage, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) will be added to guarantee users can have full ownership over their in-game items.
Q1 2022 — Interoperability, Scalability, and VR
At the start of 2022, with the platform fully live and all features running, we will add fiat on-ramp integration to create a more accessible bridge between our marketplace and non-crypto users. The team will also airdrop tokens periodically to our public and private sale investors.
We will implement cross-chain interoperability and inter-chain communication, which will help us scale as more users leverage the platform. At this stage, Virtual reality (VR) games will start being researched and developed for future integration.
