Spielworks, a leading blockchain gaming startup, announces the launch of its Womplay gaming-rewards platform, enabling users to play games and earn rewards, paid out in EOS to the users’ Wombat wallet account. The new platform not only provides gamers different ways to achieve rewards, but fuses the benefits of blockchain technology with the established popularity of traditional mass-market gaming.
Among the industries adopting blockchain technology, the video-game industry, projected by SuperData to become a $124.8 billion sector by the end of 2020, has become increasingly fertile ground for blockchain applications. The advantages of blockchain are becoming more apparent while the gaming experience is becoming more immersive, yet this joining of forces has struggled to catch the attention of mainstream circles. It has thus remained up to blockchain developers to put forth a games platform that harnesses the appeal of mainstream gaming. Spielworks’ Womplay platform answers the call.
Womplay’s gaming-rewards platform enables its users to enjoy and earn rewards not only on blockchain games, but also some of today’s most popular mobile and web browser games, including Forge of Empires, Hero Zero, Empire: Four Kingdoms and Conflict of Nations. Rewards come in the form of EOS tokens, paid directly into the users EOS accounts on Wombat. Users can also earn Wombucks, which can be redeemed in cash-out events. Rewards can be earned through a number of ways:
- Participating in performance based challenges, where users have to best their opponents in different exciting contests, several running at the same time
- Reaching game-specific milestones and/or performing certain in-game actions
- Opting in for cash-out events allows users to win a share of a fixed prize pool
- Referring friends or other users to the platform
Womplay users can utilize EOS rewards with Spielworks’s trusted crypto wallet Wombat, which provides users with free EOS and Telos accounts. The wallet serves as a gateway to blockchain-based gaming, allowing users to find, play, and interact with blockchain applications (dApps) and games available on EOS and Telos. Wombat offers free and fast account creation, automatic key backup, and free blockchain resources. All blockchain games available on Womplay are EOS-based.
Spielworks’ launch of Womplay marks another milestone in the company’s brief, but compelling journey. The company’s platform has spearheaded efforts to make blockchain-based goods accessible to a wider target group in society, also enabling the gaming community to earn from playing games. Since its launch in June 2019, it’s Wombat wallet has attracted more than 250,000 registered users in over 160 countries, becoming the biggest creator of new accounts on EOS’s main net. In the meantime, it has integrated more than 20 games and features the only crypto wallet on the market available on Android, iOS, and Google Chrome with free EOS accounts.
“The platform will initiate avid gamers who may have never been exposed to blockchain, with the ability to hold, manage, and use their digital goods quite seamlessly,” says Adrian Krion, Founder and CEO of Spielworks. “Our integration of non-blockchain games highlights our drive to bring the benefits of blockchain and EOS to every gamer.”
With its headquarters located in Berlin, Spielworks was incubated in 2018 by CHAINWISE Group, a leading blockchain consulting agency. Co-founded and led by Swen E. Hallasch and Adrian Krion, Spielworks brings the benefits of blockchain to mass-market gaming: True ownership of digital assets, secure handling of tokens and comfortable interaction with exceptional blockchain games.
