Thanks StefanN. At the first stage we plan to use Atheios as gaming currency:
Core of the architecture is the database which interfaces the Atheios blockchain and keeps records of user, developer and game data. The database will be scalable and distributed. NodeJS instances will be load balanced to handle traffic on a needed basis. The Portal, Play and APIs will be accessing and changing data according to the tasks at hand. Currently we only support CONSTRUCT as game engine, but we expect to extend to other fields later in the year.
Let us take an example:
Martin found this great game designed by You. He found it on the play portal. When starting the game, the game recognizes him as a gamer and offers him to wage 1 Atheios (1 ATH) to play the game. After some training he has a good position in the leaderboard. If others join the game and play they will spend Atheios in order to lead the game. After a certain criteria (ie 50 games played, or after a day, or after a week) the “payday” comes: by now lets say 50 Atheios are in the pot.
They can be then distributed by a certain rule: first place gets maybe 40%, 2nd place 20% and 3rd place 10%. 30% would go to You - the game developer.
Currently Atheios is listed at stex.com, safetrade both cryptocurrency exchanges, but we will also offer other possibilities to exchange Atheios from/to other currencies.
Worth to point out that this is in no way gambling. The way we want to use this is that players get recognized for their skills.
Happy to answer more questions.
