In addition to the support of major game developers, XMAX has also forged relationships with other public blockchain projects to aid their expansion and joined the PCTA (Public Chain Technology Alliance). As a PCTA member, XMAX has several strategic partners including ATLAS, BYTOM, HPB, YOUDEAL, NULS, NEBULAS, and PCHAIN. These partners give XMAX the ability to emerge as a major innovator in the blockchain gaming by sharing technology, marketing resources, and users.
XMAX also discussed cooperation with the social media app 3AM, which integrates social media with blockchain features. For many users, this APP acts as a portal to connect developers with experienced cryptocurrency users. 3AM has community features, support for developers, and a built-in wallet for blockchain payments. Relationships like these are helping the project grow at a steady rate and gives reason to believe that XMAX has the potential to shift the paradigm of gaming and how developers and gamers develop and ideas into products.
When discussing why this blockchain is important and what it brings to both developers and gamers alike, XMAX debates the current market share of the gaming industry; they see a major problem. The problem XMAX has identified is the fact that of the over 100 billion US Dollars earned by the gaming industry in 2017, almost all of the revenue comes from centralized gaming where players do not own their assets. This lack of ownership is a problem for gamers and small developers because despite the size of the market they do not share in the ownership of the items. In response, XMAX created their blockchain as a technical bridge that gives gamers and small game developers a larger platform to gain more control over the market they helped to build.
XMAX is also providing developers with an ecosystem to create games and share ideas. This new space for developers has the potential to inspire never-before-seen types of gameplay based on decentralized communities. A blockchain ecosystem like this one is truly a win-win for both developers and gamers. With XMAX, the future of gaming lies in giving gamers real value in exchange for their purchases. In today’s world, the gamer does not truly control any valuable in-game assets. If the services for the game were to be shut down, the gamer would lose all he or she had invested in that game. XMAX believes that their blockchain can be the answer to supplying gamers with real value for the money and time invested in a particular game.
In the future, XMAX sees their technology used to forge fully decentralized gaming worlds. This ecosystem will lead to a more enjoyable experience for developing, purchasing, and consuming games on all platforms.
