Founded in 2020, Gamercraft’s mission is to integrate skill-based gaming into the broader video game industry and create new markets around complex player-versus-player (PvP) games.
The company envisions a future where gamers can experience tangible returns for the time and skills they invest in gaming. By offering challenges, competitions, and robust anti-cheat detection, Gamercraft aims to enhance gaming experiences and build trust among players.
With the new funding, Gamercraft plans to accelerate the development and launch of a variety of new game genres and titles. The company has already attracted a substantial user base of passionate gamers across North America, Latin America, and Europe through collaborations with AAA online titles. They anticipate millions of new users with the introduction of new products. This growth demonstrates the increasing demand for accessible skill-based gaming and signals a potential new era of competitive gaming.
Gamercraft differentiates itself by combining blockchain and AI technologies. The company’s engineering talent has developed an adaptive learning-based model that analyzes player data in great detail to address the shortcomings of traditional anti-cheat models. The platform utilizes the AWS Quantum Ledger, a transparent and immutable transaction log, to ensure fair play. Gamercraft’s scoring and player-tracking system uses AI to provide precise performance assessments and insights. This technology enables personalized AI coaching, player development, and other hyper-localized features, offering high-value competitive gaming experiences and analytics for players at all skill levels.
In addition to its core focus on AI-driven gaming, Gamercraft plans to allocate a portion of the funding for exploration and innovation in promising areas of competitive and blockchain gaming.
