Playcent is a blockchain based user generated content platform for interactive apps and games. It’s a remix tool that anyone can use to make interactive games, mini-apps, and memes based on the various templates created by independent developers.

Playcent apps do similar things to Gumroad, OnlyFans, Wix, Rarible, and Cameo, but don’t require users to leave social networks to engage with the applications making a great case for ease of use.

Playcent aims to democratize software development by allowing non-techies to easily create interactive apps, games and other user generated content in minutes. Some of the Playcent apps or cents already replicate functionality of native apps eg. Shopify, Cameo. Initial focus is on hyper casual games and mini apps. Hyper Casual games are simple to play games which already have a market share of over $2billion out of $65 billion mobile gaming.

TIME IS MONEY

Businesses, brands and influencers use apps to engage investors and users simultaneously. These groups currently commission the creation of hyper casual games as marketing tools for $15–150k per game with a development lead time of 4–12 months. By reducing the cost and development time, Playcent gains market penetration initially generating an immediate revenue stream increasing the foreseeable profit margin rapidly. Over the next few months we will move from games to interactive apps.

Tech Structure

Playcent is in beta and has over 20 templates available for quick use. Templates are the underlying web applications that power cents. A developer can build playcent templates for any type of web application, including interactive games, memes, and apps. While creating a template a developer can define which values are customizable and leverage Playcent platform technology to make it easy for non-technical users to change them. After a template is published on Playcent, creators can easily find and remix it, adding their own images, text, sounds, and more, to create their own version that they can share anywhere on the web.

Remixing enables creators to make their own apps by customizing existing playcent apps and publishing their own versions. Developers can port existing apps to Playcent by integrating the playcent visual controls library.

BLOCKCHAIN COMPATIBILITY

Playcent is built on ethereum and runs on Matic blockchain. We initially chose Ethereum back in 2019 due to the number of developers building on the platform, and the ability to build an MVP quickly. As time passed it became clear that building a blockchain UGC Platform solely on Ethereum would not be feasible from a scalability standpoint.

We have chose Matic Network as our scaling solution due to the high performance and security of our infrastructure Among the data generated from the Playcent ecosystem, any items that are transaction-related are recorded in the Matic blockchain in the form of Tx.

FUNCTIONALITY

PCNT, the native token of Playcent, is a core utility token which lives on both matic and ethereum chains. It will be used as a base ecosystem payment currency, to stake in the system, and as a governance token when the governance module is launched. PCNT holders will be able to claim rewards if they stake their tokens, participate in key governance votes, playing games and through user-generated content initiatives.

1: Governance, where token holders decide on things like emissions, distribution, upvotes etc and control the reserve funds

2: In-app currency for all the apps & games developed on Playcent

3: Subscriptions, asset marketplace transactions will be charged in PCNT token

4: early access of games for token holders and other premium services

5: Payment for advertising on Playcent

6: Rewards for Play mining

Rewards The reward tokens represents 15% of the total token supply. The goal of the rewards tokens is to attract a wide range of creators and gamers to the playcent ecosystem in the hunt for token rewards and to give ownership and stake to the most active community members. The Rewards allocation can be seen as a marketing budget for the playcent ecosystem.
