Introduction

Blockchain-based NFT Mobile AR Game Platform - The next AR P2E Game

The Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) markets, which have been developing centered on games, movies, and performances, are becoming a technology that can be easily accessed in everyday life by combining with the commercialization of 5G.

The GRAND project is a game project that combines P2E (PLAT TO EARN) to earn coins while playing mobile augmented reality (AR) games.
The GRAND project aims to provide more benefits to those who use the GRAND project through AR, VR, NFT, etc., which are called next-generation platforms.
GRAND aims for a blockchain-based NFT game ecosystem that creates value through creation and ownership of digital assets in the game, and we intend to build our own AR game platform ecosystem using blockchain technology as NFT (Non-Fungible Token) and P2E (Play to Earn) have emerged as hot issues in the game industry recently.

As the concept of making money through games is gaining a global consensus in Korea, Southeast Asia, and South America, the number of P2E game participants in various countries such as the Philippines, Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina, and Cuba is increasing significantly.

With P2E through mobile AR games, NFT has been added to the in-game system, establishing itself as a new digital asset, and due to its features that guarantee originality and rarity, it is becoming a key factor in cryptographically making in-game assets.

Outline

Expansion of AR and VR Markets

Market Watch, a market research firm, predicted that the AR/VR market size will grow to $766 billion (about KRW 894 trillion) by 2025.
It is predicted to have a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 73.7% from 2018 to 2025.

Growth drivers due to proliferation of non-face-to-face culture:
▲ Increasing demand for HMDS (Head mounted displays, VR devices worn on the head)
▲ Adoption of VR in corporate marketing strategy
▲ Demand for AR/VR in retail and e-commerce industries is growing
▲Procurement of investment funds by AR-related companies can be cited.

According to a report released by Google News Lab, the number of people pursuing ‘Storydoing’ in which they experience and share stories, rather than simply delivering content, and furthermore, ‘Storyliving’, where stories become everyday life, is increasing, especially among the younger generation.

NFT market emerging as a trend

NFT is a non-fungible token that gives a unique recognition value to digital assets, enabling proof of ownership.
Chainalysis analyzed a vast amount of data generated in the virtual asset market over the past year to predict the virtual asset outlook for this year, and announced that the NFT market size is estimated to be at least 32 trillion won ($26.9 billion).

As the field of NFT grows in various fields such as games, fandom, and real estate, leading domestic and foreign companies such as virtual asset exchanges, entertainment, and game developers are developing and investing in products to preoccupy the NFT market.

As a result of the analysis of Statista and Jeffery Investment Bank, the global NFT market size was USD 2.4 million (about KRW 2.9 billion) in 2019, USD 35 billion (KRW 42 trillion) this year, and USD 80 billion (KRW 96 trillion) in 2025 ). The market size expected to grow rapidly in size.

Game NFT

According to Cointelegraph, a media specialized in cryptocurrency, the Blockchain Gaming Alliance claims that the game market using NFT grew to $2.33 billion in the third quarter of 2021, accounting for 22% of the total NFT transaction volume. Digital items created through P2E (Play to Earn) in the game are capitalized in the form of NFTs, and their ownership can be freely traded between users through the NFT marketplace. Blockchain games are sometimes accompanied with the terms play-to-one (P2E), play-and-on (P&E), and non-fungible tokens (NFT).

Although the method is slightly different for each developer, authentication of item ownership and supporting item cashization with cryptocurrency are collectively referred to as a blockchain game.

Now, game users can become digital asset owners who can own and buy digital NFT game items as much as they invest time and effort while enjoying P2E, that is, through games in simple games they enjoy.

Market Problem

Launched in 2016, Niantic’s AR game ‘Pokemon Go’ sparked an AR craze around the world. Pokemon Go is a game in which a person actually walks outside and catches a Pokemon with AR technology applied with a smartphone. It fits well with the original concept of traveling to various places to collect Pokémon, and until recently recorded sales of about $2.5 billion (KRW 2.9 trillion). The success of Pokemon Go basically lies in the use of mega-hit content, Pokemon IP.

However, since most of the AR games focused on the technology itself, they did not make enough fun as a real game, and were released without a proper IP, so they were virtually ignored from the market.

One of the reasons why AR games have moved away from users in the market is that AR games require not only cameras but also several location-based sensors, and the technical aspect that it is difficult to optimize due to the different specifications of each smartphone model. Unlike the existing games where you can play in a narrow space or on public transportation, some games require you to stand up and play or a large space. Most AR games are cumbersome and have spatial limitations, so many users choose existing games instead of AR games.

These shortcomings have been pointed out even before the launch of 'Pokemon Go', but no significant technological improvement has been made. In addition, there’s a task of reinforcing the incentives for users to invest time and effort, such as meaningful ‘killer content’, IP, and brand content.

Details of Allocation

The platform token is called GRAND Coin and is an ERC-20 utility token.
A total of 5 billion are issued and used as the key currency.

It is paid as a reward for various activities of users on the platform, and airdrops through events, and can buy it through an external exchange.

The goal of GRAND is to allow users to produce NFTs through games on the blockchain and freely trade them through various NFT exchanges.

GRAND will support users to create active NFTs based on P2E through various blockchain-based projects in the future, and by supporting created NFTs to be traded through the GRAND ecosystem and expanded NFT exchanges, we support users to multiply their crypto assets.

GRAND will try to prevent excessive unlocking and airdrop from depreciating the value by unlocking an appropriate amount of GRD coin in the market during this NFT creation process, and control the distribution volume so that GRD coin can be used intensively for the purpose of activating the GRAND ecosystem.

Each issued GRD is allocated according to its purpose, and the purpose of each distribution and its quantity are as follows.

Ecosystem & Air Drop

30% of the coins will be used as ecosystem tokens that will be provided as revenue for users through P2E games and as a financial airdrop for marketing.
