The world loves to play. If there is one key takeaway from Corona, that’s it. Gaming is community, is passion, is the perfect form of escapism. When the world stood still, gaming was the haven for everyone – even Formula 1 superstars like Ferraris LeClerc spent his downtime on twitch. When you are a gamer, there is no social distancing – the world is your society.
Covid also shows that our industry is one hundred percent recession-proof, bulletproof no pun intended. Almost every studio large and small reports record months, but one important group is left in the dust: The gamer. Hundreds of millions of people play every day but to turn your passion into a career is a tough one. Many tried it on Twitch & Youtube, but that requires equipment, a beast of a PC, and hosting skills. It’s about time for an alternative.
FiPME is a platform that lets everyone turn their gaming passion into a career. It’s The First International Play Money Exchange. Think Nasdaq, but for gaming. Where everyone can trade virtual items, no matter where they are in the world. And which game they love.
It’s a platform designed by veterans from the world of trading boutiques as well as Red Bull, NBC Universal, and Samsung. A platform from gamers by gamers – our CEO used to be one of the biggest gold traders in World of Warcraft, and he has a few stories to tell about grey markets and the problems they create. We are different; we are working with publishers and give them a fair share eliminating the need to trade on unsecured offerings. Security is paramount to us – we are using virtual escrow accounts – only once the item is delivered, the money gets to the seller.
We also want to open this opportunity to create economies and massive revenue channels to all studios out there. If you have cool armor for your hero, any special item really – you are already FiPME ready.
