Welcome to the Haste Arcade™

And then the questions that gave birth to a new type of gaming…

What‘s the easiest way to demonstrate a micropayment to a mainstream audience? How can we split a quarter up into tiny pieces and instantly send it to hundreds of people?

Let’s build a list of our friends.

The list could be a leaderboard.

Maybe we could pay our friends a different amount depending on their place on the leaderboard…

What triggers the payment?

The New Haste Arcade

Build a SDK that lets professional game developers quickly add ILP™ to their games without all the headaches of needing to know anything about Bitcoin.

You put a quarter in a Pac-Man machine and get the high score. For having the high score, you get a percentage of every subsequent quarter spent on that Pac-Man machine until your score is no longer on the leaderboard.

Haste Token (HST)

  • The Haste Token (HST) runs natively on the BSV blockchain and is awarded daily to players based on the amount of Duros (a small unit of Bitcoin) they spend in the Haste Arcade that day. HST is also awarded to game developers based on the amount of Duros spent playing their games every month. In total, Haste will reward 80,000,000 HST to gamers and 30,000,000 HST to developers.
  • As part of the model, 10% of all Duros spent across the entire Haste Arcade are deposited directly to a publicly viewable wallet, known as the Haste Loyalty Wallet (HLW). Anyone holding HST can redeem their tokens for their pro-rata share of the Duros in the HLW at any time. Once the tokens are redeemed, they are burned.

Example: Rachael holds 100,000 HST tokens, 5% of the 2,000,000 tokens that have been distributed thus far. The HLW is currently 5,000,000 Duros. Rachael redeems all of her HST tokens for 5% of the HLW, earning her 250,000 Duros.

You mentioned Duro… Tell me more.

Player Cards

The Haste Player Card is the world’s first Bitcoin output NFT
  • Each HPC is a unique NFT that can be held or sold by the card minter in the Haste Marketplace and can be seen on-chain
  • Each time the card is traded, the original card minter receives 10% of the exchange price
  • By minting an HPC, the player automatically gains access to the Haste Marketplace, where they can purchase other players’ Player Cards
  • Players that hold their own HPC receive 10% of their gameplay spend back on every play
  • Players that hold HPCs of other players receive 10% of all the gameplay spends from those players
  • Players can set the price of their HPC and list it for sale to other players in the Haste Marketplace
  • When a card is traded, the seller receives a 70% commission (80% if sold by the original card minter)
  • The original HPC minter receives a 10% royalty when it trades.
