Conceptualized from the philosophy of the blockchain and genesis block, the Age of Nakamoto grew into something far beyond decentralized security technology. Built as homage to these recent technological strides, Nakamoto’s world is fully-fledged and beautified, made to provide endless possibilities throughout a myriad of life-like biomes, shifting climate, and in-game events, all backed by a rich and plentiful lore that will keep users speculating and learning throughout the experience.
Where else could players jump into a game and become the digital embodiment of a medieval nobleman? Where else can you accumulate wealth and resources in a feudal economy, where war and destruction are just a few decisions away?
Age of Nakamoto plans on setting the stage for the next evolution in Web3 games. For these reasons, we require more funding. The average Triple A game has a development cost of around 60M. We’re looking for 6.5M over the span of 3 years. In this particular $PUSH grant application, we are asking for 60K. The reason our project costs considerably less than a big corporate game is our optimized team. Our goal is to create blockchain game that utilizes a user focused approach that works on any device, rather than lean on expensive graphics that few devices can use.
One can make the argument that indie studios cost considerably less to develop their games, but those cut corners come at a different cost. Issues such as glitches, exploits, and server failures generally occur in games and are patched over time. However, as a blockchain game that utilizes real world transactions, these game-bugs can spell the failure of that game before it has a chance to flourish. Item duplication and exploits can turn a sound economic model into dust within hours. These funds are paramount to hiring top tier developers and quality assurance engineers to make the project bullet-proof.
A polished product reduces the cost of marketing considerably. And money invested up front will always pay off through enhanced product longevity. And that’s why, in the current step of our project (specifically for this budget request) we want to hire an game art team (3d modelers, to texture artists, and environment creators) and procedural generation developers. Having an expert in each of these fields will allow a collaboration that makes the game seem whole. Identifiable graphics are an important part of a brand, and at Age of Nakamoto we want any aspect of our game to be immediately recognizable.
Age of Nakamoto is also full of industry veterans that recognize the value in liquidity, and that is the final reason we’re looking for the large investment. Being able to pivot on a dime without having to liquidate company funds lets us stay agile in our approach towards planting our flag as leaders in the cryptoworld. We’ve got a working model that utilizes our proprietary “skill-to-earn” model, we’ve got short and long term plans for player retention, tournaments to tackle the untapped e-sports scene, and these funds will allow us to build the infrastructure to house all of this. We believe in Age of Nakamoto, and with your help we can really help the game reach its full potential.

We’re eyeing a large part of our production team to be from South America, specially Brazil, however we acknowledge that industry veterans and labor from the worldwide stage will sometimes be required. This reflects the core value and skillsets of our international core team.
With the decline of the crypto market, funds via incubation from Venture Capitals reduced as well. This is through no fault of their own, businesses need to thrive. However, that heavily reduced our production funds and thereby reduced our production. With this we’re asking this grant to support our project going further. We’re in a land of opportunity, with this current drop, and the value for every cent will grow exponentially now more than ever with the future rise of the crypto market. Within chaos lies opportunity, and we’re looking to have you all join us on this opportunity to rise to the top. We must keep building.
Value Proposition to EPNS
Age of Nakamoto’s transparency and reducing a game to its core elements: Fun, Opportunity, and Longevity. Every successful game brings positive press towards the major protocols involved, and solidifies the future of Web3 even more. Successful crypto games increase the weight and legitimacy of blockchain games each time they come into the spotlight. Age of Nakamoto believes that one does not get to the top of the mountain alone, but as a tribe. We plan on partnering with Chainlink, Pooltogether and multiple other across the Blockchain, because historically not only cross promotion leads to success far better than market warfare, but it also increases user experience.
