Gamestar+ Powered By Avalanche
Written by Avalanche Today
Gamestar+ is a next-generation streaming app that combines classic gameplay patterns with an innovative Play-to-Earn blockchain architecture that is powered by Avalanche. Gamestar+ utilizes its connectivity with globally recognized brands to deliver entertainment by way of unique social gaming content accessed through TV, mobile, and other connected devices.
In today’s world, entertainment is just a click away. There are multiple online video platforms like Netflix and Disney+ that audiences can utilize for their viewing pleasure. Beyond video, Spotify provides music lovers with endless songs and podcasts, and even Audiobooks are readily available en masse via Audible.
According to Statista, 80% of families have board games at home, and 50% of them play them at least once a week. Yet, despite its timeless appeal and projected category growth of 50% over the next five years, the traditional cardboard format has remained unchanged for decades.
The truth of the matter is, that technology has exploded current gameplay possibilities, and customers expect more from entertainment platforms. Consumers are now seeking memorable experiences and unique activities.
“In The Same Way That Netflix Transformed Home Entertainment, And Spotify Transformed The Music Industry, Gamestar+ Is Poised To Revolutionize Board Games By Turning The Games We Know And Love Into Interactive Multimedia Experiences.” — Todd Young, COO

Gamestar+ is the First Fully Immersive Entertainment Board Game Platform. Imagine, instead of simply playing Jeopardy on a cardboard board with the family or shouting out answers to the TV screen alone, you link up your phone, laptop, or even your TV, and a world-famous announcer narrates your game. Your phone is now the buzzer and your home’s smart lights have begun to react to what you see on your screen, creating an immersive and realistic game show atmosphere as if you’re right there on the set of Jeopardy.

Gamestar+: Tokens And NFTs
The most exciting part from our point of view? Gamestar+ is powered by and operates on the Avalanche Network.
Core to Gamestar+ is the GSTAR token, an in-game blockchain-based currency that can be used for a multitude of purposes including in-app purchases, skins, level unlocks, premium content, and much more.
Gamestar+ is also underpinned by an NFT-powered ecosystem, allowing content creators and stakeholders to transparently know exactly how much their content has been used, and to be compensated fairly for it.
It is intended that users receive NFTs by completing experiences and earning achievements, or by buying them directly from the Gamestar+ store using GSTAR tokens.
Developers may have full control over how they utilize NFTs within the Gamestar+ ecosystem. They will be able to use NFTs to incentivize users to try their content or place them on a storefront to create additional revenue.
Gamestar+ Is Uniquely Suited To Bring This To Life
Gamestar+ is led by a highly experienced team of industry experts. The CEO is the founding member of one of the world’s largest board game companies, Imagination Entertainment, and has partnered with household names like Hasbro, Mattel, Fremantle, and many more.
Imagination Entertainment has amassed a strong community of over 600,000 users just within its app network. These users will become the core of the Gamestar+ player followers and community on launch.
The desire to provide top-tier entertainment is drawn from the highest tier of content producers in the world. Members of the executive team come from Sony Pictures Entertainment, Disney+, HBO, 20th Century Fox, among others.
Gamestar+ has partnered with some of the world’s top gaming intellectual property as well as in-house experience with Hollywood studio-level productions and boasts a suite of celebrity talent as well as an already massive community. As result, these familiar games will be brought into a new era and will create a new world of experience for players around the globe.
The online gaming industry is ready for its next revolution, and that revolution is Gamestar+, combining the convenience of Netflix, the magic of Hollywood, and the social experience of a game night, and placing it right at your fingertips.
