This is a paid press release, which contains forward looking statements, and should be treated as advertising or promotional material. Bitcoin.com does not endorse nor support this product/service.

The Abyss digital distribution platform is gearing up for its Token Sale. The team behind the project aims to allow gamers and game developers to have a mutually beneficial cooperation, in which both sides get to earn from their efforts. Players will be rewarded for playing games and being active with their friends and the community. While developers will get to enjoy marketing benefits, payments for in-game items, and referral benefits.

The gaming industry is growing at an alarming pace. Massive marketing expenses are necessary in order for developers to draw attention to their games. Developers have to spend more time on market shilling than game development. With The Abyss platform, that’s about to change.

The platform will provide developers with promotional and analytical tools, so that they can cough up less cash for ads, earning more at the same time.

Platform Referral System
Players and users will be able to refer other people to the platform and have new users play games, generate content, unlock achievements, and help the community grow. In exchange for rewards, which span over 5 levels.

First level rewards for platform use are 40%, second level and third levels (friends of friends) get 20%, fourth and fifth referral levels provide for 10% rewards.

Helpful Platform Tools
The platform also provides all of the needed analytical and metric tools needed for the video game industry. Tools and info like MAU, ROI, ARPU, LTV, and others.

All stages of user behavior (from traffic sources to in-game actions) will be fixated and calculated, so that developers can easily optimize their sales funnels, reduce expenses, and increase profits by redistributing advertising channels and increasing user value.
Developers won’t have to worry about monitoring and recording traffic, user behavior, as everything will be calculated on the platform. This will allow game developers to boost sales, decrease expenses, and increase the value of their games.

Internal CPA Network
Game developers will be able to sell excess traffic to others, buy it, or even utilize a lead network. Players can also sell traffic to developers through the internal CPA Network and its functionality. Developers can also utilize basic marketing tools like website banner ads, e-mail announcements, etc.

What Developers Can Draw From The Platform
For their efforts, developers will be compensated in fiat currencies or ABYSS tokens. They can also select what currency they receive and in which proportion for each transaction. Funds can be withdrawn instantly at the first request.

The platform will allow game developers to launch their games in alfa & beta versions, utilize crowdfunding for development purpose, and take advantage of the platform’s effective promo tools.

Developers will be able to use the The Abyss reward bank to retain players using achievements and take advantage of support services, and platform analytics tools around the clock.
