Gameboard has made significant progress this month.The latest, in a series of exciting updates, is the introduction of GXP, (Gameboard Experience Points), which is the new Gameboard token for its gamified platforms.GXP has been deployed on the Expanse blockchain.
The goal of Gameboard is to build an API that allows you to apply game theory to a non-gaming application. It provides the mechanical functions of bringing points, levels, badges and rewards in a simpler way. So we leave the game design and the dynamics to the game designers.
Gameboard can not only be integrated into any system, but it can also unify information from various systems to have constant and comprehensive feedback from its users.
Here’s an example use case:
In the case of a logistics company, we could connect Gameboard to its’ access control system and record the arrival time, then integrate to the computer registration system and record the time an employee starts working. If we assign points to these actions and duplicate it, and if this time is less than the average, we will reward the execution of these tasks as follows: “If you go to work on time from Monday to Thursday, you can leave after lunch on Friday.” That would be cheaper for the company than if every day the employees arrive late and also take a long time to start working.
In this day and age where companies are looking to save costs, it pays to “reward” employees when you can motivate them to perform certain tasks in a game setting. In short, It is cheaper to reward them than to stop motivating them. This is based on the fact that 70 percent of the world’s workforce are millennials, and millennials work for rewards. Going back to the issue of points and prizes, the company will invest a lot of money in prizes used to change behavior or achieve goals, so that the actions become electronic values that are of interest to the player (employee of the logistics company). This is an excellent use case for the Blockchain.
“Implementing a gamified platform makes the points become a financial cost, but they generate value by producing a higher productivity and measurement system,” said Andres Garcia, Gameboard CFO.
For this reason we use the Expanse technology so that the management of points gets registered on the Blockchain. When a user earns points, he receives GXPs, and they can be stored in his wallet (Luna allows the management of our token) and then he can exchange these tokens for prizes that are preconfigured on the platform.
For companies to implement a gamified system is an investment, and we want to manage it on the blockchain, so that it is secure, distributed and permanent. If you want more information, visit us at www.gameboard.tech.
