In 2013 the XAYA team introduced the world to true blockchain gaming with the Huntercoin experiment. Since then, they have pushed blockchain technologies ahead with several unique innovations. Through several years of R&D, the team proudly presents this new platform where games can run serverless and unstoppable on the blockchain with countless thousands of games and millions of players. True Blockchain gaming – Real asset ownership, new game genres, completely decentralised virtual worlds, no Central Servers. Complete Toolset – SDK/API, documentation, examples and support. No need for complex smart contracts. Use any language you wish. Massive game worlds – Cutting edge technology that allows for limitless scalability, real-time trustless gameplay and game worlds that support millions of players.

What is being proposed here is gaming using the blockchain to provide a secure, decentralized, autonomous, and flexible platform upon which a variety of games can be built. This is a new frontier in both cryptocurrency and blockchain based gaming, but it is not an unknown frontier. In 2013, the XAYA team developed and successfully deployed the Huntercoin experiment. This achieved a number of world firsts including, but not limited to:

 The world’s first decentralised massively multiplayer game
 The world’s first game world built entirely on the blockchain
 The world’s first human mining permissible cryptocurrency

Huntercoin was a proof of concept to develop solutions to the technical challenges and to test the market. Huntercoin was successful and within just a few months of launch achieved over 35,000 simultaneously controlled characters3 in the game despite a low profile launch, and despite requiring some specialist hardware (i.e. solid state drives, which were uncommon at the time) and a reasonable level of technical know-how from the gamer. Huntercoin was largely autonomous and required no servers or other infrastructure. It achieved a market capitalization of over $1 million in the first few weeks4, putting it as a top cryptocurrencies of the time by market cap, and peaked to around $10 million in 20175 . The Huntercoin experiment served its purpose several years ago, and this ‘hobby project’ provided a number of world leading insights into blockchain technology, including publication in the blockchain journal ‘Ledger’. The XAYA platform builds upon the significant know-how developed across Namecoin and the Huntercoin experiment and will provide a wealth of tools and infrastructure for game developers to build their own game worlds that fit their vision and project. They can fully leverage the XAYA technology to build decentralized games and issue their own game currency that can be traded for ‘CHI’ or other XAYA game coins or assets.

It is important then to point out that XAYA aims to:

 Enable developers to create provably fair games in decentralized realities
 Build a blockchain-based gaming ecosystem
 Provide developers with tools for asset trading for new and existing games
 Provide a full-scale virtual asset trading platform

Experience

The assembled XAYA team is comprised of the original creators of blockchain gaming, experienced developers, and blockchain and business experts. So whilst this is a new frontier, the assembled team has the experience, insight, and initial designs available to readily solve the challenges ahead and realize game-changing blockchain technology and a whole new ecosystem.
