Gaimin helping to bring PC Gamers to Polygon
A tale of the value of values.
Polygon, a full-stack scaling solution on the Ethereum blockchain, a dream for any company looking to scale — more transactions per second and hyper low transaction fees. This sum-up from Coindesk set out their intentions all of four months ago.
Fast forward to this piece from Cryptoglobe in May 2021, and just look at the volumes achieved, with over 62 million transactions and 700k wallet addresses. All of which has been reflected in the coin price for Polygon/Matic…because it offers a real value solution to what was an escalating issue with transaction fees on Ethereum.
Real world solutions for real world problems. Oh, and nice guys do get to win. After meet ups with the Polygon team, Gaimin founders were delighted at how straightforward, down to earth and unpretentious these rock stars of full-stack scaling solutions really are.
Which probably accounts for the fact that after discovering how the Gaimin project was conceived, pursued and made real, and with a bond in common in offering valuable, and practical solutions, working together rapidly came into focus.
Gaimin is set to list in Q3 2021. Software development and testing is completed to Beta stage and user (“gamer”) acquisition metrics are known. It will be a prudent and managed escalation. Over 1.5 billion worldwide PC based gamers are all potential users. Hence walking before running would seem prudent.
Gaimin has already integrated the Polygon/Matic wallet into their platform. Gamers download the Gaimin Application for their PC’s, and are rewarded for the monetization of idle GPU power in GMRX (Gaimin’s Token) that they can then use as a basis for in-game purchases across more than 30 games, and growing, NFTs and soon to be hardware.
Together with robust testing, security audits and readying for onboarding big numbers of gamers, Gaimin is delighted to be able to have the fluidity, volume capabilities and cost effectiveness of the Polygon proposition for its customers.
First and foremost the ties that bind the two businesses are to offer solutions and services that bring direct benefits for users, make their lives easier, less costly and more fun. And that is where the value of values lies, hidden in plain sight.
Gaimin have developed an innovative solution for decentralised blockchain mining designed specifically for the global gaming community. Harnessing the unused power of the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) within a gaming PC, Gaimin have created an optimised, AI-driven, mechanism to power blockchain computations, generating a passive income for a gaming PC owner. The Gaimin platform is a complete gaming solution enabling the passively earned GMRX (Gaimin’s token) to be used for purchases from the Gaimin marketplace — accessories, merchandise, in-game NFT assets, other NFT assets, or converted to cash. Gaimin have future-proofed the platform to provide other functionality and monetisation options in addition to blockchain mining, such as video rendering services, processing of data for University Research, Company data analysis; Pharmaceutical, Chemical industries etc.
Polygon is the first well-structured, easy-to-use platform for Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development. Its core component is Polygon SDK, a modular, flexible framework that supports building and connecting Secured Chains like Plasma, Optimistic Rollups, zkRollups, Validium, etc, and Standalone Chains like Polygon POS, designed for flexibility and independence. Polygon’s scaling solutions have seen widespread adoption with 350+ Dapps, ~128M txns, and ~1M+ unique users.
