A DeFi Protocol for in-game Assets

  • Shroom is leveraging NFT standards and DeFi innovations and applying them as novel applications for game items minting, trading and promotion.
  • Community-led decentralised protocols such as Shroom have undeniable advantages compared to centrally promoted solutions and pseudo-DEXes.
  • Our ecosystem will bridge and democratise access to crypto capital markets, unlocking new opportunities for gamers and game developers of all sizes.
Virtual worlds are frequently full of NFTs and currencies that users find extremely valuable

The opportunity

In-game assets are a BIG deal. Poised for explosive growth in the coming years, the gaming industry is expected to surpass $200B in 2023, with video game assets trading well over $50B/year (Juniper Research). The industry is very healthy and has excellent perspectives.

Virtual items like unique weapons are traded every day for up to thousands of dollars on secondary markets

Vision

Our mission is to enable the issuance/minting, launching, and trading of these assets with unprecedented ease. Breaking the barriers of entry for thousands of game developers and gamers while helping bridge the gaming and blockchain worlds for a truly open ecosystem. Game developers tapping into DeFi liquidity, capital and Yield Farming minting processes, and DeFi LPs/farmers supporting, driving and owning in-game economies.

Protocol Components

  • GSWAP: DEX token
  • Ecosystem NFTs and rarities

Launchpad

The game launchpad module repurposes yield farming into a system for supporting in-game assets minting and launching of promising video game titles. LPs will be able to provide liquidity to game devs via SHROOM pairs, and support them during the first stage of their in-game money systems and currencies inception.

DEX module

Our DEX (GameSwap) will be initially focusing on in-game assets exclusively. First with 3rd party launched games, and later supporting big video game titles. The fees generated in the DEX will be routed as follows:

  • 30% SHROOM holders
  • 10% Ecosystem’s NFT holders.

Tokens

Shroom’s ecosystem tokens are designed to drive governance, align incentives among ecosystem members while keeping it 100% decentralised, and to offer supporters the opportunity to benefit from the platform’s services.

  • Used as main farming pair in the games launchpad module
  • Used as an in-game asset in 3rd party and in-house games
  • 30% of the DEX fees routed to $SHROOM
  • Receives 2x of the DEX fees (60%)
  • Incentivise liquidity for bootstrapping the DEX

Mint module

The Shroom Mint is a dApp where game devs and users can mint new collections of NTFs or wrap existing video game assets. The Minting operation requires a small fee paid in SHROOM. Newly minted items will be directly tradable on the DEX.

Governance module

As a DAO, the project will be always led by the community, which will be driving the strategy and direction. The goal is creating an unstoppable globally distributed organisation running fully on-chain without central points of failure or authority. Any decision can be subject to a community vote.

ROADMAP

COMING NEXT

After the SHROOM fair-launch via farming, initial community formation, and governance system introduction, our immediate focus is preparing the liquidity for the DEX bootstrapping.

  1. Set several funds aside for development, design, and marketing.
  2. Deploy the first iteration of the DEX: DEX UI concepts and in-depth features will be explained in the following update.
  3. Add the first game(s) to our launchpad.
