ALTO - ICO Review

The business model where users and game players are allowed to play free of charge is a very challenging one. Players and participants will consume content at no cost, but the organizer usually bears the cost of keeping that model functioning. This is the problem that most game developers face. With a meager percentage of the users adding to the revenue, it becomes difficult for game developers to breakeven.

Most times, smaller developers find it difficult to sustain their business momentum because of these operational costs. On the other hand, free players are restricted from paywalls and other restrictions to help the developers generate some revenue. This somehow reduces the gaming experience of the users.

These are all challenges for both players and developers face in the gaming community. But ALTO wants to change all that. The main objective of ALTO is to ensure a mutually beneficial business model for both players and developers for a self-sustaining ecosystem. It is developing a sustainable business model that will provide benefits to all participants in the industry –content creators, players, and developers.

One doesn't have to be a genius in crypto analytics to understand that esports will spearhead the mass adoption of cryptocurrencies. The reason is quite simple: most gamers and developers are tech geeks, who either already own crypto or have some knowledge about it. They know the benefits of it, which means that the gaming community will accept crypto way more eagerly than, for instance, a medical of an academic one. Therefore, ALTO has a decent chance of making an impact in this space.
