1. Overview

NEXTYPE is an integrated blockchain game distribution platform committed to creating high-quality blockchain games and bringing players a comfortable experience of Play2Earn. We will develop more accessible and efficient asset exchange protocols and tools for blockchain games to allow users to enter the blockchain game world easily. In the meantime, we will provide infrastructures and ecological support for developers in multi-dimensions, development, operation, distribution, etc., to help them create excellent games. As a blockchain game distribution platform, NEXTYPE provides initial token offering services for different blockchain game projects in the form of GameFi, which we call IGO. This is the core highlight of NEXTYPE's business and also an important application scenario for our ecological token.

As the blockchain world enters the third generation, hot spots such as DeFi and NFT are getting popular, and blockchain users keep pouring in. They are looking for a more interesting scenario where value appreciation can be achieved more efficiently and securely. Although innovation is the unified starting point of each project, seeking a more detailed and precise area has become challenging.

This has also prompted us to formally launch NEXTYPE based on a long period of in-depth exploration of games and blockchain to bring a new game ecology with more innovation, more sustainability, and expansion to the blockchain world.

As you all know, the blockchain game is not a newly-developing area. It has been four years since the phenomenal application CryptoKitties arose in Ethereum in 2017 as the start, and Axie Infinity was introduced in 2018. However, it was not until the beginning of 2021 that they entered the vision of blockchain enthusiasts more widely. The blockchain games industry, which is still in the early stage, will enter a high-speed development stage in the next few years. Along with the launch of various types of blockchain games, players' needs for information collection and capture, learning and participation, game asset management, etc., will continue to emerge. At this stage, the value of comprehensive services provided by NEXTYPE ecology for blockchain game players will be significantly reflected.

With the continuous implementation of various products under the concept of Metaverse, more users from the non-crypto world will gradually migrate to this new world, and for these new immigrant users, how to participate more efficiently and in a more visual way will become a significant demand. NEXTYPE's various infrastructures will be a solid bridge to effectively help users achieve identity conversion and asset migration from the real world to the crypto world.

The Gameverse belonging to NEXTYPE is gradually opening up in Metaverse.

2. The Purpose of the Whitepaper

This whitepaper aims to introduce the overall planning and goal of the NEXTYPE. This paper provides a relatively comprehensive and systematic introduction of NEXTYPE by combining blockchain and games to create a fascinating blockchain game ecosystem and proposing the design of the architecture for underlying asset and platform systems based on multiple types of blockchain games.

2.1 Target Users

Blockchain investment institutions, blockchain practitioners, game industry practitioners, blockchain game players, cryptocurrency investors, blockchain industry research scholars.

3. Development Goals

3.1 R&D Management Mechanism

3.1.1 Establishing the standard specification of GameFi products

By combining the experience based on the traditional game industry with the characteristics of the blockchain industry, we have established a standard project specification of GameFi product, aiming at 4 aspects, including market demand, core gameplay, art style, and economic model.

3.1.2 Establishing the standard process of GameFi products R&D

Centered on the game producer, establish the standard process of GameFi products based on engine development, server development, smart contract development, etc. NEXTYPE's engineers have experience in Unity3D, Cocos, and other mainstream game engines and can quickly realize the performance development of clients. NEXTYPE's server engineers have experience in Erlang, Golang, Java, and other mainstream back-end languages. They have gathered many sets of server frameworks and architecture systems over a long time, allowing them to quickly develop mainstream game types such as turn-based games, MMORPGs, Card IDLE games, and Simulation games. NEXTYPE's smart contract engineers are familiar with smart contracts programming for all kinds of DeFi and continue to develop smart contracts for GameFi on their own. The game producer will coordinate all technical teams to achieve the goal of speedy development based on a process-oriented work mechanism, which decreases 30%-50% of the game’s technical development period compared to traditional games of the same scale.

3.1.3 Establishing the standard distribution mechanism of GameFi products

In the traditional game field, the publisher plays a vital role. When a high-quality game product is not chosen by the appropriate publisher, it will also affect the commercial performance. NEXTYPE's publishing team has more than 10 years of experience in traditional game publishing. We will use this experience combined with the market and operation characteristics of the blockchain field to establish a standard distribution mechanism for GameFi products, including community components and operations, in-depth cooperation with game guilds, and a sustainable marketing strategy. We aim to achieve the best distribution for each game with low cost and high effect.

3.2 Business Cooperation Mechanism

3.2.1 Standardized game co-development mechanism

Based on the standardized game development process established and successfully implemented internally, we will conduct in-depth R&D cooperation with senior game developers/studios to promote the GameFi products development rapidly. NEXTYPE will establish partnerships with over 300 game developers worldwide, quickly develop game products according to market demand, and share game revenues through distribution and operation.

3.2.2 Standardized game co-distribution mechanism

GameFi products that are not developed or co-developed by NEXTYPE can be licensed to co-distribute and operate through cooperation with NEXTYPE based on the ecology and users to maximize commercial value and generate revenue quickly. In this process, the co-distributed games will be linked to NEXTYPE platform token NT in terms of the economic model. While helping the game to gather potential users quickly, it will bring more empowerment to the platform token NT.

4. Technology Components

4.1 Token Smart Contracts

NEXTYPE's platform token NT and the Tokens within each game will be issued using the standard ERC20 protocol (when the game is based on the public chain underlying the EVM) or the standardized token protocol of the public chain on which the game is deployed.

4.2 Gameplay System Smart Contract

When the performance of the public chain on which NEXTYPE’s games are deployed supports large-scale concurrent on-chain calls, part of the gameplay system will be programmed into the smart contracts and open source. Users can understand this part of the game system by viewing the contract code to realize the openness and transparency of the gameplay.

4.3 Gameplay System Features

Given the current performance of most public chains that cannot realize the real-time calculation of complex gameplay through contracts, the function of complex gameplay of big games will be processed by the centralized code of traditional games. The purpose is to achieve the consistency and stability of game performance and ensure the players have the similar experience to traditional games.

4.4 NFT Minting Protocol

NEXTYPE will provide a minting protocol for NFTs between different games, allowing players to mint NFT from game A to NFT from game B so that their assets can be continued and start a new game experience at a lower cost. The NFT minting feature will be deployed in NFT Master.

4.5 NFT Trading Protocol

NFT Master, a decentralized NFTFi protocol product, will contain the most basic NFT trading features, and the trading will be completed in decentralized ways.

4.6 NFT Auction Protocol

The NFT auction protocol will be deployed in NFT Master, allowing players to conduct public auctions for some specific rare NFTs autonomously, and the auction process is completed in decentralized ways.

4.7 NFT Lending Protocol

NFT lending protocol is deployed in NFT Master, allowing players to lend their NFTs independently. After paying a certain amount of rent and deposit, other players can choose the assets on rental and return the items at the end of the rental term. The whole process is completed in decentralized ways. The lending function can effectively enhance the liquidity of in-game NFTs and bring players long-lasting and long-tail revenue.

4.8 NFT Cross-chain Protocol

NFT cross-chain protocol will be deployed in the NSwap, allowing players to cross-chain NFTs that NEXTYPE officially supports and will support multiple EVM underlying public chains in the future. In addition, after its next version update, players will be allowed to add NFT cross-chain liquidity for liquidity gains.

4.9 GameFi Products Standardized SDK

NEXTYPE will develop a standardized GameFi product SDK to facilitate traditional game Content Providers to quickly bridge traditional game back-end systems with the on-chain environment and implement integrated Web3 component functions, which can effectively improve GameFi product development efficiency.
