Web2 Games Integration

Gamereum's approach to integrating Web2 games into the Web3 ecosystem is multi-faceted, focusing on both technical and user experience aspects via its built-in Web2 game integration & development tooling. Our innovative solution for connecting Web2 and Web3 gaming revolves around a seamless, integrated interface that leverages the strengths of both worlds.

Blockchain Integration Layer → A core component of Gamereum is the Blockchain Integration Layer (BIL). This layer bridges Web2 games and the Gamereum blockchain, facilitating communication and transaction processes. It’s like a gaming-specific API interface and Oracle that is compatible with multiple popular gaming engines. It enables traditional games to tap into blockchain functionalities like smart contract methods for verifiable randomness, Asset Mapping, and Decentralized storage without extensive re-engineering.

Game Adaptation Kit (GAT) → Gamereum’s GAK provides developers with robust APIs and Software Development Kits (SDKs) that enable the integration of Web2 games with the blockchain. These tools are designed to be intuitive, allowing for seamless integration of blockchain functionalities like tokenization, in-game asset transactions, and decentralized identities into existing or new gaming infrastructures with optimized backwards compatibility with existing game engines like Unreal Engine & Unity. Some functions Gamereum SDKs support include;

  • Support Web3 wallets for in-game transactions

  • Integrate NFT capabilities like minting, renting, and trading

  • Launch and distribute in-game currency as tokens

  • Optimize games for Web3 on mobile

  • Integrate with staking, DEXs, and lending applications

Gamereum provides the necessary blockchain layer needed for Web2 games to take things to the next level and develop the following superpowers:

  • Asset Tokenization → In-game assets, including characters, skins, items, and currencies, are tokenized as NFTs or semi-fungible tokens to allow for verifiable ownership, trade, and portability of assets across games and platforms within the Gamereum ecosystem.

  • Immutable Asset Transactions → Smart contracts automate in-game transactions and events. The pre-defined rules ensure transparent and tamper-proof gaming processes, such as asset transfers and reward distributions.

  • Cross-Platform Wallet Integration → Gamereum SDK enables the seamless integration of a broad range of Web3 platforms & wallets including Metamask, TrustWallet, WalletConnect, DEX’s, lending markets, etcetera. This feature enhances user experience by providing multiple user-friendly ways to get started.

  • Decentralized Data Storage → To enhance security and decentralization, Gamereum employs distributed ledger technology for storing game data. This approach ensures data integrity and reduces the risk of centralized server failures or data breaches.

  • Interoperability x Cross-chain communication → Onboaded games can send messages between various blockchain networks and games within the Gamereum ecosystem. This is achieved through Gamereum’s modular sub-chain L1 approach. Privacy is kept intact with bleeding-edge ZKP technologies.

Decentralized Identity Verification → To ensure security and privacy, Gamereum implements a decentralized identity system encapsulated in a Web2-like UX journey. This system verifies and authenticates users while maintaining their anonymity and control over personal data.

NFT Marketplace Integration → The Gamereum ecosystem includes a built-in NFT marketplace, allowing for the forging, trade, and management of in-game assets across different games and platforms within the ecosystem.

Gamereum Testnet → The testnet provides developers with a full-featured sandbox environment to build and test games, smart contracts, and blockchain integrations, allowing for iterative development and debugging without risking real assets.

By simulating high-traffic conditions and complex game interactions, the testnet would allow for stress testing of the Gamereum blockchain's throughput, latency, and resilience, ensuring the network can handle peak loads with optimal performance.

It’s also an essential tool for conducting security audits and vulnerability assessments, helping to identify and rectify potential security issues within the blockchain infrastructure and game code before they affect the mainnet.

Gamereum Faucet → Participants would need testnet-specific tokens (without real-world value) to simulate transactions, staking, and in-game economics, providing a realistic economic environment for testing and that’s where the Gamereum faucet comes in.

The testnet tokens that can be fetched at the Gamereum faucet is capped at a specific amount per hour to prevent raiding and ensure there are always testnet tokens for everyone to get their hands on at any time they are developing or testing their games.
