Business model

Freemium model: Our business model does not charge users to download the application. We significantly lower the cost of entry to increase virality. We extract revenue when users have used and engaged with our products.

Developer Ecosystem: We will release an SDK for development teams to port new and pre-existing games onto our platform. We will provide different types of licensing terms tailored to client size and needs. We will also provide high-touch support for strategic and white-label clients. Our vision is to employ revenue sharing with 3rd party developers in the future.

Our solution works in all modern iOS and Android touch-screen devices and does not require a computer. The product runs on devices our customers already own and it selects the most optimal connection methods (Wifi, bluetooth, and LTE/3G) automatically to enable connectivity be done virtually anywhere.
