1.1 Blockchain + Game + Finance will be the new trendsetter in blockchain gaming industry
According to Newzoo’s 2021 Global Games Market, ever since July 2021, the amount of gamefi has increased drastically, the user base from April to October has grew from 80 thousands to 1.33 million, an average of 270% increase per month; Daily transactions has increased from 500 thousand USD to 544 million USD during the same period, the average increase of 181 times per month, this has shown that GameFi industry has an incredible potential in the future. As shown from the data, Play-to-Earn has breakthrough a new all time high of 10 billion USD during August 2021.

1.2 Web3.0 GameFi [ Great Era ] has arrived

During Web2.0 era, Player’s data are being stored in centralized platforms such as Steam, a super engine that helps to package and categorize all kinds of user’s data, all of these datas consist of a price, if a game developer wanted to advertise their product to the appropriate targets, they will have to go through these platforms by paying them. Web2.0 era has allowed platforms to gain huge amount of revenue through user datas, however, these profits are not being shared with their users. This issue will no longer exist in Web3.0 era.
Throughout the whole Web3.0 structure, SIGN’s decentralized identity (A.K.A. DID) will become one of the most important factor. DID allows user to control their own digital identity. DID consist of user’s personal information as well as security datas, which will only be used after getting the approval of users so as to highlight our unique points of safety, validity as well as operational functionalities.
Web3.0 is committed to change the control of data from centralized platforms, storage distribution system will be the one of the most important fundamentals in Web3.0. Storage distribution system will higher security and safety over datas, as well as preventing single point of system failure. SIGN Web3.0 has provided a more open, fairer, and safer network in order to resolve a main issue which is the distribution of platform benefits. Web3.0 wants to motivate the initiation of user’s fundamental subjectivity and value creation in order to resolve the issue on benefits distribution problem. Ownership will be one of become biggest traits in Web3.0, whereby participants will have total ownership over their own details, datas, as well as assets. Web3.0 has accomplished a distributed network, where users are able to control their own assets, datas, and privacy.
Gamefi and Web3.0 are natural compatible with each other. Asset ownership validation during the era of Web3.0 enables each user of Gamefi to have credible asset value and identity authentication, and user data and information are fully controlled by themselves. Web3.0 AI engine has helped Gamefi players to split and reorganize their digital assets, allowing them to transfer their assets across multiple different games.
Web3.0 has accomplished a reality which allows players to have own data assets, asset ownership, and GameFi industry will achieve the goal of "scarcity", "practicality" and "viewing". As a pioneer of GameFi in the Web3.0 era, SIGN strives to enable everyone to control their own digital identity, assets and data, and then control their own destiny. By rewarding targeted users, real participants and workers can become shareholders and owners of interests, breaking through the existing limitation as well as opening the great era of Web3.0 GameFi.

1.3 Web3.0 Social Networking + NFT + Gamefi Era

On 27th August 2021, NBA star Stephen Curry has updated his profile picture to a BAYC NFT that wearing a flowery suit, this profile picture has cost $180,000 USD (55 ETH), which attracted a hype in social media.
As a bridge between traditional internet and Web3.0, NFT has become a social networking verification tool, which allows a big amount of internet users swing towards decentralized internet, and thus, having a unique digital code as identify and persona is the minimum requirement for entering Web3.0, and also serve as an important asset in this digitalized world.
The birth of NFT, has given socializing a brand new existence. Using Web3.0 SIGN’s distributed social circle, NFT, and the combination of GameFi as a basis, this has created a lot value added aspects for communication.

1.4 Metaverse + GameFi solution for Game Industry’s Future

What allows GameFi to last long in the industry was that it provides the real world’s users to have an opportunity to explore how a metaverse looks like. GameFi has a lot metaverse attributes. First of all, we can have an identity that allows us to crossover to different gaming platforms, where allows users to experience different environments easily. Secondly is the immersion experience, one of the most important aspect of every game will be whether the game can provide users with immersive experiences, this is also one of the factor that will attract real world users to tryout metaverse, and accepting metaverse. Lastly, metaverse is an open world which has an awesome socializing attribute.
GameFi allow us to experience the start of metaverse world, where people are able will be able to exist in a digitalized world, each and everyone is unique and allows millions of people walking down on the same street, purchasing of own land, and building own properties.

II. Current Market Situation

GameFi ecology has been a hype due to GameFi projects such as Axie which has showed potential that are on par with DeFi, NFT, and market mobilization of the traditional digitalized assets. The concept of GameFi has become one of the hottest topics in blockchain industry, and there are a lot of issues that existed as well.

1.1 Cons of Web2.0 Games Platform

Web2.0 allows users to generate content independently and publish it to the platform to interact with other users. This is an era of information technology. Due to the network effect of Web 2.0, there are only a few game platforms left in the market, and other smaller platforms are lost because there are no players or not competent enough to compete.
The first problem in the Web2.0 era is that the game platform is operatedand controlled by a company behind it. The mission of the game company is to maximize the interests of shareholders. The characteristic of this mode of operation is that the contribution in economic transactions or production has not changed, but because the platform has a special status or has some special rights, it constantly expands its own income and compresses the income of other participants.
The second problem is the unfair distribution of benefits. The reason why gaming platforms have such great value and network effects is because a large number of players participate in the creation. The platform's profits are opaque and unpredictable, and flow to major shareholders first (major shareholders may revise the platform's strategy in pursuit of higher profits). After the platform grows into a gigantic tree, not only does it not give players a reasonable distribution of profits, but it also earns more money from players. Those participants who depend on the platform to survive have no say in the distribution of the platform's benefits. What's more, users do not have absolute ownership of the game assets of the platform, and the ownership of assets does not really belong to the player, but to the platform.
The third issue is user data privacy. Players are neither informed nor understand the boundaries and they use the private data generated when they use the platform services, and they have no decision-making power over these data, not to mention the use of it to generate economic benefits.
As the largest gaming platform in the Web2.0 era, Steam has the largest number of users and games in the world. However, its centralized operation model makes both users and developers need to pay a large proportion of the share to the platform while realizing their own benefits. And for the assets of users and developers, Steam officially has the absolute right to interpret, so in essence, Steam is still an intermediary model of the traditional Internet, and users and developers as content providers are under the control of Steam.

1.2 Bad User Experience, Dispersed Followers

The current blockchain gaming industry is still in its starting stage, which it faces numerous challenges and issues, resulting in poor user experience.
First of all, GameFi-related information is seriously fragmented. For users who play different types of games on different networks, the entire process of obtaining information about each game is very troublesome. There are blockchain games scattered on different chains on the market, and the information is relatively independent and decentralized. Due to these fragmented information and resources, each platform has its own product lineup, and each platform has its own biases. Users need to switch across platforms in order to get the information they needed.
Secondly, the Gamefi ecosystem has no professional community, and both consumer and business users lack an aggregated professional community ecosystem. For end users, they have to download and install different wallets, visit different websites to get different statistics and game guide information, which makes it difficult for users to obtain accurate information on related items. If a user searches from a mobile phone or a website, they must install multiple applications, plug-ins, and different installers to search and obtain information.
All of the asforementioned problems and challenges raise the learning threshold for traditional gamers who are trying to enter the GameFi industry, and the entire experience can be daunting. Becoming a veritable blockchain gamer is a complex, frustrating and insurmountable gaming experience. These are the bottlenecks that make GameFi difficult to apply on a large scale. Until now, there has been no professional one-stop GameFi platform on the market that aggregates key game content and features to provide the best seamless gaming experience.

1.3 Imperfect Ecosystem

The "new generation" of GameFi lacks a complete ecological system and cannot form an effective economic cycle of player→asset→development team→asset→player. This made some GameFi projects with great potential end up "stillborn" and could not really join the market for players to experience. Many excellent game developers have developed competitive games and economic models, but their operational capabilities are weak, resulting in players always maintaining a scale of dozens or hundreds of people, unable to rapidly expand the player base, and unable to gain a market share in the GameFi sector.

1.4 A loss in players causing GameFi to lose out in the later stage

The GameFi industry is not as "universal" as we have always expected, and its concept and operation are still based on blockchain asset transactions. Understanding and entering the GameFi industry still requires certain blockchain knowledge reserves and certain trading experience. This has led to many GameFi projects, although they have received enough attention in the industry at the beginning of their establishment, and their reputation in the industry is decent after their launch. After early stage players have gained enough income, they will left the game or turned to operating game assets, this project will face a difficult situation in which the total number of active and organic players has decreased.

1.5 Paid Games vs Earning while Playing

Although the size of the traditional game market exceeds 200 billion US dollars, and is still growing year by year. However, in the traditional social concept, playing games is essentially a criticized activity that consumes people's spirit, time and money. Many gamers face criticism from parents, spouses, friends while playing, and most users may even feel guilty about it.
Combining with the above current situation of GameFi, there is an urgent need in the field for a comprehensive platform that can help chain game projects and even the entire GameFi field to solve pain points. The platform needs to start from traffic aggregation entrance, chain game development, value savings, etc., to meet the needs of various nodes in the current GameFi field, and to attract more capital investment through the combination of players, guilds and the above nodes, and continue to promote GameFi upsurge.

III. Solution

3.1 Goal

SIGN aims to create a professional GameFi aggregation platform with one-stop service experience, namely GameFi version of Steam. It is the world's first game platform that integrates wallet, community and information perpendicular to the GameFi industry. Thousands of top quality chain games, KOLs at home as well as abroad, well-known IPs and game guilds have reached in-depth cooperation, committed to free flow of game assets and help hundreds of millions of players enter the era of "Play to Earn" with ease. With its convenient token economic channel, SIGN can better promote game asset exchange, game value realization and empower game economic value.
SIGN collects the most valuable GameFi information through the entire network. Through SIGN, users can quickly understand the game, enter the game without hassle, and obtain relevant data rankings. Additionally, users can discover game portals, in-game item transactions, social media properties, and game publications here. SIGN will also aggregate, review and release the relevant information and strategies of GameFi projects, and aggregate the most useful tools and plug-ins for the projects.

3.2 Creating a GameFi Ecosystem

Aggregate players, build a guild entry platform, and building a multilingual community.

3.3 Creating a GameFi Exchange Platform

Support item transactions, NFT transaction, make transactions more convenient and safer.

3.4 Strengthening P2E Attributes

Designing a new economic model, creating NFT assets, GameFi value, making it a stronger P2E, and extending the game life cycle through P2E attributes. With the introduction of Play-to-Earn mode, gamers are empowered to earn financial rewards for completing game objectives. Player’s mentality and behavior will be fundamentally transformed under the Play-to-Earn model, which is gradually transforming users from "pay to play" to "play to earn money". We firmly believe that, driven by the Play-to-Earn model, GameFi will continue to grow earn a proportion of the $200 billion traditional gaming estimation.
As an industry leader in P2E, SIGN will start from the core of Play-to-Earn, bring new game incentive rules to players, and will serve as a bridge between traditional games and GameFi World's P2E.

3.5 New GameFi Project Incubation

The establishment of an ecological fund, combining with the attributes of P2E, which incubates traditional games with better playability and development, this also promotes the integration of traditional games into the blockchain game space, and makes them reborn as a GameFi.
