Alto’s mission is to enable a self-sustaining ecosystem built around an item-first business model that is fair and mutually beneficial for developers and players alike.
Our solution is a decentralized platform with a suite of tools that enable game developers, users, and content creators to participate in this ecosystem by minting, using, and selling interoperable cryptoitems on the blockchain.
Using the Alto Item Builder and Alto Store Builder, developers can create and pre-sell cryptoitems to players as a way to raise funding for their blockchain games.
This is similar to crowdsourcing platforms but more beneficial to the player because they end the transaction with a wholly owned cryptoitem which they can sell or trade.
We are working with the cryptogame community and partner developers to create shared standards and reusable code for item interoperability.
Cryptoitems created by the Alto Item Builder are designed to be used across multiple games, making them more meaningful and incredibly valuable to the player. Every time a cryptoitem gets supported by a new game, it gains utility and thus its value and usefulness increases.
The Alto Item Library provides game developers the ability to search existing cryptoitems by creator, owner, supported games and other properties.
By choosing to support existing cryptoitems in addition to their original work, game developers are able to tap a pre-existing captive market and reach, acquire, and retain a wider audience of item owners.
Using the Alto Item Builder, content creators, game developers and players are empowered to easily create non-fungible standard compliant ERC721 tokens to be used as virtual game items (cryptoitems). Our cryptoitems are interoperable, meaning they can be used and sold across multiple games and users.
The Alto Backpack is a mobile wallet that stores cryptoitems and acts as a bridge between players, content creators, and game developers.
Players are able to connect to games, stores, and exchanges. Developers gain access to users through airdrops, referrals, and other incentives.
Cryptoitems are truly owned by users, this means they can be sold, traded, or otherwise transferred across individuals. Alto supports these transactions in two ways:
