Video games have now become a part of the lives for so many individuals; some indulge in it to relieve stress and for leisure while others make profits out of it. Whatever the reasons are, more and more are getting hooked with video games. That is why many developers are catching on in this trend creating various game platforms for all ages, gender and genre. However the sad part of it, is that not all video game developers have the capacity, especially finances, to create a game. Not all has the capability to get a loan from the bank to make dreams a reality. And that is when crowdfunding enters into the picture.
Crowdfunding is obviously means that the crowd does the funding and a crowdfunding platform is where all these transactions occur. In a broader perspective, crowdfunding enables creators with little-to-none money to capital sells his or her idea to prospective investors. Once a person is willing to invest in the said product, he will fund the project or campaign and will get his investments once the project has started generating income.
Because of the number of video game creator with great potentials, Hyperbridge was born. Hyperbridge Technology, a software development firm, was founded in 2017 just outside of Estonia. The group of people, mainly composed of designers, developers and innovators, have come up with a solution to solve the challenges in IoT, AI, and most specially blockchain. The company’s ultimate goal is to create user-friendly solutions and to come up with decentralized products and practices creating micro-economies. The first focus of Hyperbridge is the gaming industry. Via BlockHub, the platform aims to bond consumers with the producers.
