As the video game industry continues to adopt crypto and blockchain technologies, developers and players require innovative and intuitive ways to navigate the ever-changing gaming landscape.
In October 2018, Xsolla announced a strategic partnership with the made-for-gaming cryptocurrency, MobileGo (MGO). By working together, the two will provide PC and mobile developers — as well as gamers — with more options to earn, pay, and play.
MGO is a global smart token that creates exciting opportunities for developers and gamers alike.
For the first time ever, PC and mobile game creators can receive royalty payouts on a sliding-scale percentage of their choice. They get those regularly scheduled payments three times a week in the cryptocurrency — a rate far more frequent than the usual fiat approach. When paired with Xsolla’s industry expertise, these aspects of MGO give developers more flexibility and control over their payouts. These advantages make the payout process more convenient, especially for those game creators who are crypto enthusiasts.
Much in the same way, players from around the world stand to gain from this strategic partnership. Gamers can buy over 500 games and in-game content with MGO, giving more than 500 million players a trusted cryptocurrency payment method. MGO also facilitates peer-to-peer match play and decentralized tournaments, all the while gaining traction among players since it’s easy to cash out the cryptocurrency’s value on exchanges like DigiFinex, BitForex, HitBtc, and GateCoin.
MGO adds value to an industry that’s always eager to adopt forward-looking technologies.
As Xsolla Founder and CEO Aleksandr Agapitov stated, “Xsolla’s mission is to always be at the forefront of innovative technology, continuously adding tools and services that enable developers to grow and monetize their games globally. MGO will accelerate transformative opportunities for our community, and with MGO, owners will now be able to engage in peer-to-peer match play and organize decentralized gaming tournaments in a way never before possible. MGO is essentially the Bitcoin of the gaming industry, the most trusted cryptocurrency that Xsolla is making available to more than half a billion gamers.”
