01. The basics

Using the blockchain
technology to irreversibly
store training data

PlayMaker is the world’s first blockchain system applied to sports science and related business.

Professional athletes train wearing special sensors which send the recorded training data directly to the decentralized storage in real-time. That data can be reached seamlessly by entities holding secret keys.

Data recorded in this irreversible way is completely trustworthy and thus, can be used for more purposes than it was possible with traditional centralized servers.

Proof-of-Authority (PoA) consensus reaching mechanism that is chosen to be integrated with the PlayMaker system allows those who will utilize the network to secure their own environment and benefit from their position.

Simply put, PlayMaker is introducing the sports science with the blockchain technology, producing a polyvalent database ecosystem in the process.

04. Is there more?

Ticketing system

No more ticket lines!

PlayMaker App allows all fans to buy tickets online using PlayMaker’s system, which cuts down costs of ticket printing, distribution, and accounting so critically that organizations will be able to lower the prices while providing fans with the much better user experience.

Fans buy tickets for their favorite team’s matches in PlayMaker (PMK) cryptocurrency or fiat currency accepted by the organization. In the meantime,  they are able to vote in club-issued polls, like “Which jersey would you choose for the upcoming season?” or “Who was our MVP last season?” The more tickets a fan buys, the more power his/her vote holds.

This deepens the connection between clubs and fans and provides an extra level of influence a fan can have on the club’s decisions.

Tickets re-selling is an illegal act, and through the usage of the PlayMaker’s ticketing system, tickets black market is completely eliminated, and counterfeiting made impossible. This also benefits both, clubs and their fans, since there will be no more ridiculously inflated prices of tickets, and various problems concerning counterfeiting will be neutralized.

Moreover, institutions (clubs, promotions, etc.) are now able to prevent identified troublemakers (hooligans) to attend venues, making stadiums safer for true fans and their young ones, while also potentially cutting costs of expensive stadium security.

Road-Map

The road-map is an approximation of the past and coming development updates in accordance with our team’s estimations of time frames in which they were and will be implemented.

07. Tokenomics

PlayMaker Currency

PlayMaker is introducing its own two-cryptocurrency ecosystem, with PlayMaker (PMK) and PowerPlay (PWP).

After the initial deployment of funding tokens, PMK will eventually migrate to its native chain. After the migration, holders will be able to utilize it for business on the PlayMaker network and run nodes, and PMK reserves will be used as a liquidity pool for transactions in the PlayMaker ticketing system.

On the other hand, all transaction fees and node rewards in the PlayMaker network will be paid for in PWP. 

Investors will also be able to trade PMK and PWP on cryptocurrency exchanges as the PlayMaker team will do everything in their power to get cryptocurrencies listed on as many cryptocurrency exchanges as possible.

09. Who takes interest in PlayMaker's technology?

Our Market

It is widely known that sports are a huge and lucrative worldwide business and the disrupting blockchain technology is yet to penetrate this multi-billion industry.

Ones of the richest organizations in sports are football (soccer) clubs, whose yearly revenue exceeds €760 million.

FIFA World Cup is the biggest event in sports today, and its 2018 edition generated a gigantic revenue for the organizers as well as for the football associations. Broadcast revenue topped $2.43 billion, while sponsorships and ticket sales brought in $1.6 billion and $527 million, respectively.

Looking beside football, we can take the example of the NBA champions, Golden State Warriors, whose yearly revenue tops $350 million.

Furthermore, organizations promoting events for individual sports do not fall far behind, such as the famous MMA promotion organization UFC, which generated a revenue of over $700 million in 2017.

PlayMaker development team considers each of these organizations (and many similar ones) to be our potential client or a partner, as our product is the first one which deals with some notable problems these businesses are encountering on a day to day basis.
