Frequently Asked Questions

Learn more about PPYA and the Papaya Gaming platform

Why does Papaya Gaming need to be blockchain-based?

Blockchain technology allows for trustless transparency for both game developers and end users, using smart contracts to enforce fair payouts to all parties.


What are the benefits of the PPYA token, as opposed to other cryptocurrency?

The primary goal of the PPYA token is to drive a closed economy for competitive players and game developers. Players utilize the PPYA tokens by participating in social and real-money tournaments (where each tournament has an entry fee in PPYA tokens), and buying in-game items. Game developers either utilize the PPYA tokens by selling them to their players, paying for user acquisition, or providing promotions to players.


Why did Papaya Gaming choose the Ethereum blockchain?

The Ethereum blockchain is currently the industry standard for issuing custom digital assets and smart contracts. The ERC20 token interface allows for the deployment of a standard token that is compatible with the existing infrastructure of the Ethereum ecosystem, such as development tools, wallets, and exchanges. These features and active ecosystem make Ethereum a natural fit for the PPYA token.
