Hat Swap City: 3rd-Party Integrations
A true metaverse, the Hat Swap City is mindful of inking 3rd-party integrations. Thriving on the BSC chain, Hat Swap City will form gaming partnerships with studios willing to initiate blockchain integrations.
Hat Swap City will form varied types of partnerships with NFT Projects. The integration levels are as follows:
- City Market trading approval
- Stalls for in-game NFT selling
- Character Sprite Integration
- Joint-venture game marketplace development
Hat Swap City intends to build proprietary technology that benefits video game studios willing to add digital assets on the blockchain. Their game studio partners would be assisted in their endeavor of integrating their game assets into web3 protocols. By doing so, they would enhance the Cityverse’s value via boosting NFT traders’ avenues.
World’s First Live-Action (In-Game) NFT Bazaar:
The Hat Swap City is home to the world’s first live-action NFT bazaar. Users would simply log into the bazaar for appearance customization depending upon the NFTs in their wallet. They can then trade with other users for NFTs for any (supported) video game. Hat Swap City is built on the strong basis of open air markets’ potential of building robust community bonds (as the foundational cornerstones of multiplayer platforms).
In the Hat Swap City’s in-game NFT bazaar, a number of access tiers would be offered depending upon the NFTs held (as against the old school subscriptions-based model). Hat Swap won’t take the NFT exchange route as exemplified by AirNFT or OpenSeas.
Hat Swap would rather develop an active forum and social media channel for the Hat Swap Bazaar. This Bazaar would let people share their wares to sought buyers’ interest, to then initiate their transaction deals in the game bazaar.
Hat Swap City gamifies the online market experience via speculative mini-games and adventure. The release of a “trade2earn” system that awards swapping is also what sets Hat Swap apart from the competition.
Why are the Hat Swap City HATS Special?
With on 5K hats available in total, there are 58 Unique Hattributes (in the form of accessory, background, and vignette). The cute, collectible and unique HATS of the Hat Swap City belong to the Hat Swap Founder Series (HATS). These are the 8-bit Hat Swap City video game wearable hats. Developed via a procedural generation matrix using backend logic, each of these hats feature a unique variable combination. A total of 5,000 HATS will be minted under the Founder Series. A special feature of these HATS is their ability to secure a spot for you in the Hot Swap City video game (beta).
The Hattributes that tend to make your NFTs unique are: type of hat, color of hat, accessory, background, and Lore. While a majority of them are "profile picture" NFTs, Hat Swap City hats have Lore. This world-building Lore is a central Hat Swap City element. This means your hat’s story would have a considerable influence on you upon dawning it in-game. The Hat Lore is what makes each hat unique. Simply play our games or collect via NFTrade.com.
Why Hat Swap City: The Rationale
The video game industry and its market are craving for and demanding technological innovation and renewed game mechanics. Video game producers’ visions have often fallen prey to restricted budget woes. The result? Failing promises, rotting fund development, compelling untimely game releases.
Yesteryears’ Cosmetic Marketplaces have actually garnered successes for game publishers.
Team Fortress 2 (TF2), under its Orange Box series, released hats (a customizable status symbol) as a genuine innovation. But TF2’s success rose to fame when in 2011 analyst Paul Manwaring attributed TF2 Hat market a valuation of over $50 million.
CounterStrike (CS:GO) soon followed TF2’s footsteps by launching a creator-based hats marketplace, supported by Valve (and pro players). This reaped Valve a whopping $414 million in revenue on CS:GO (courtesy majorly of their cosmetic market).
The success of TF2 and CS:GO calls for deploying not-so-easy-to-implement and costly merchant processing platforms and in-game digital authenticity items. Then managing the large “gray market” around the items poses unique challenges of its own.
What’s the Hat Swap City Solution?
Digital (in-game) purchasers often voice their concerns pertaining to the eroding asset value post exiting the game. Gamers tend to face questions like “you paid for that, what does it do?” Paying money for easily duplicable digital assets yielding almost nil value other than the in-game ones tend to make them obsolete on an early basis. This inherent (core) problem is solved by Hat Swap City via minting NFTs for the generated game item. Hat Swap City’s NFTs carry bankable value, allowing the player to exchange it for a fair value at their will.
