A London-based company rewards gamers for playing triple-A titles using its blockchain platform.
fruitlab allows content creators to build a community and earn by playing their favorite games, hosting one-on-one challenges, sharing content, and viewing other members’ content.
Fortnite, Apex Legends and PUBG are all connected to the platform, with more titles to follow. The platform has over 100,000 monthly users.
fruitlab started with a content and social media platform in 2018 and has grown exponentially. The platform is backed by fruitlab’s own crypto token, PIP, which has seen five billion transactions to date.
“We are here to disrupt the standards of gaming. For too long content creators, gamers and game developers have not been able to fairly monetize their content or earn money in fun and satisfactory,” said Cameron Leslie, CEO.
“Our new platform changes that. With fruitlab, you can play and win – in an entertaining environment and, above all, a community of like-minded gamers.
“The rise of social media platforms has led to disillusionment with fair monetization, as most platforms suck up over 95% of the economic value created. The lack of community platforms for gamers currently necessitates multiple services , that’s why we created fruitlab to bring all the elements of social media together in one place and democratize it.
“We have seen the rampant demand for a network that is owned by its members, today the launch of fruitlab responds to this demand. We are excited to grow our community and lead the way in Web 3.0 gaming.
