Worldopoly is the world’s first mobile game that includes Augmented Reality, Geopositioning, Blockchain & Artificial intelligence within an engaging economic simulation and strategic multiplayer game. Players can buy real streets in real cities and actually see their game progress using the AR extension. The game offers three types of cryptocurrencies: WPT, Worldopoly Coins and Building resource, the latter two are not monetised.
The game includes different ways of player interaction e.g.
To generate revenue, users can build and buy property throughout the world, invest more or put their stock up for auction. The buildings and surroundings are brought to life in real-time with the augmented reality function as players hold up their mobile devices.
Users or players can team up with multiple investors to finance large-scale projects
Real estate prices are affected by the political and economic situation within Worldopoly’s own virtual universe — making for an exciting and dynamic user experience. If a mob of gangsters, for example, throw Molotov cocktails at a building, expect prices to depreciate or fluctuate.
AR (Augmented Reality): With the implementation of AR, classic “mobile games” are revolutionized. The Worldopoly creators have made it possible for players to see the game progress in the real world, away from the confine of their mobile device screen.
Geopositioning: As the game is built around owning properties, this makes precise geolocation essential.
Blockchain: Since the game is based on Real Estate, Data protection and decentralized data-transfer possibilities become essential to the success of the game. The properties and game progress is protected by implementing unmatched security of Blockchain technology.
Furthermore, as an additional layer of realism to the game, Worldopoly provides players with the possibility of a decentralized platform for trading, interaction and of course, a game currency that operates under the same principles as real-life currencies. Last but not least “Worldopoly” provides a risk-free entry point for people who are not familiar with cryptocurrencies and Blockchain, thus is the game also educational.
AI (Artificial Intelligence): Implementing life-size AR-structures into the game has presented the developers with significant challenges, e.g. “floating of Objects” This is due to cameras being unable to differentiate between the ground and the building walls at a certain distance.
As a solution, the developers have implemented a dedicated AI specifically built to recognize buildings, streets and measurements, as suppose to a conventional coding fix. With this, not only can objects be positioned with an unmatched level of precision, they can also be “layered” on top of existing structures and enable the AR-extension to see all the objects at the location. It allows multiple players to look at objects simultaneously, taking into account different view in angles and distances as well as shadows.
A substantial investment of €1.5Million has already been made by dotcom Ventures Holding AG, Lindenvalley GmbH and Philip Klein-Dohse & Partners to bring the project to its current development stage.
Worldopoly Token (WPT) benefits
Mobile gaming is the key driver of growth in the entertainment industry with a projected yearly turnover of $128.5billion between 2016 – 2020 and this presents a great opportunity for investors interested in video game stocks.
Worldopoly presents investors with exponential growth on ROI, a Net Profit Margin total of €34 805 386 (9,88%) is projected by the 3rd year following the game launch.
WPT is a highly liquid token as the emission is limited.
The main economic model of Worldopoly is its utility token which value is influenced by pricing factors. It commands a consistently high turnover of the token in the game and only allows a smaller amount of tokens on the market. A first in the gaming industry.
Blockchain technology provides security & transparency and exchange of virtual achievements for real money without any hindrance
