"DMarket is the future of the gaming industry that is happening right now. We are creating a new gaming economy and giving each and every gamer the power to turn virtual items into real assets and take their passion for gaming to the next level. We’re all set to navigate the uncharted waters of in-game items trading and we invite you to embark on this journey with us!"

Market & Industry

Over 2.3 billion people play games every day on different platforms and devices. In 2017, the gaming industry reached $107 billion in revenue and is still booming. Yet, only around 4,000 pro gamers are able to make a profit out of their gaming experience and time spent playing games. Just a couple of titles involving only 6% of total global gamers already have a turnover of close to $4 billion trading in-game items. At the same moment, 94% of gamers are not involved in trading items at all. Why?

HOW DMARKET WORKS

Today, game universes are not connected to each other. There is no safe and easy way to trade virtual items among them. We are building DMarket - a global marketplace based on blockchain that enables one-click sale, exchange, or evaluation of every in-game item across different gaming platforms. Blockchain technology ensures 100% security and transactions transparency. It bridges the gap between existing game universes and eliminates the involvement of any third party. Blockchain helps log any changes of items ownership and automatically transfer payments. The DMarket Token is native to DMarket, it is the only currency used within our marketplace.

To resolve the problem, we are using a decentralized database on blockchain. Using our API, every game developer can easily connect the game to DMarket. All operations are fast, secure, and immediately synchronized.

DMarket enables one-click sale or exchange of every virtual item among all games on any platform. This will turn every virtual item into a real asset for billions of gamers globally.
Using our API, every game developer can easily connect its games to the DMarket blockchain and make in-game items available for trading. This will help increase any game’s lifetime value and provide game dev companies with a new sustainable source of revenue and a new business model to complement and add value to existing ones.

Token functionality

DMarket token is represented by DMarket coin. DMarket coin is the only currency used across the DMarket platform. Every purchase, sale, exchange, or any other transaction on the platform will require the use of DMarket coins.
It will be used within the DMarket platform for the following purposes:
  • As a currency for buying and selling in-game items
  • As a way to deliver sales commission to digital property rights owners
  • For buying premium accounts (for wholesale and individual sellers)
  • For purchasing Big Data analytics

Oren Klaff

Managing Director at Intersection Capital ($2 billion in aggregate trade volume across a diversified portfolio of companies and transactions)

"The DMarket team knows more about cryptocurrency and smart transactions than the next five companies combined. They impressed me with the idea of combining all known gaming worlds into the one society, giving players the tools to buy & sell directly with each other. This is the next generation of commerce and DMarket is leading it."

Aleksandr Agapitov

CEO and founder of Xsolla

"We believe in the potential of cryptocurrencies for trading in-game items, and we’re happy to partner with a promising project such as DMarket."

"DMarket is a game changer for the game industry! The Steam marketplace is huge, but this will be on another level unifying mobile, console, and PC gaming industries while empowering gamers to monetize their time and skill."

Dr. Moe Levin

CEO of Keynote(a global technology conference company that has been responsible for over $250M of investments into cryptocurrency / blockchain startups)

"There is a tremendous amount of locked-up value in the world of Esports. Value that has been created via hard work and skill, but is locked due to a lack of infrastructure, efficiency, and capabilities. DMarket streamlines the process by creating an interoperable marketplace which is game and platform agnostic. With a new marketplace, users are able to unlock and recover their billions of dollars' worth of hard work and open up even greater possibilities."

Igor Matsanyuk

Chairman at Game Insight, ex-Senior Vice President at Mail.ru, Founder at IMI.VC, Founder at Farminers

"It seems that this future is already happening: the virtual goods get real value, while the virtual economics are setting the rules for the real markets. DMarket’s initiative to organize and optimize the in-game assets ecosystem will set new standards of quality and comfort for users. It is yet another opportunity for our society of consumption to reassess its values."
