This paper presents a realisable and unique vision for the future of gaming built on top of or
using the Chimaera blockchain to manage increasingly complex and appealing game worlds as
well as securing and simplifying the ownership, sharing, and trade of virtual assets.
The Chimaera platform achieves this through the democratisation of game development and
deployment, allowing developers to bring their vision to life quickly with significantly reduced
costs. It will provide a wealth of tools and a state-of-the-art infrastructure for game developers
to build their own blockchain-based games. Furthermore, developers can fully leverage the
Chimaera technology to issue their own game currency that can be traded for ‘CHI’ (the reserve
currency and “fuel” in the Chimaera ecosystem) or other Chimaera game coins and assets.
Additionally to the benefit of gamers, developers can create fully decentralised, autonomous
games where players can expect 100% uptime and have provably fair gameplay with true
ownership of their in-game items.
Until now scaling has been a major difficulty for blockchains and particularly for massive
game worlds and their virtual asset inventories. The Chimaera team has overcome this with
world leading breakthroughs in Trustless Off-chain Scaling for games (Game Channels)1
and Ephemeral Timestamps2 and will continue to invest strongly in this important and
The assembled Chimaera team is comprised of the original creators of blockchain gaming,
experienced developers, and blockchain and business experts. So whilst this is a new frontier
for cryptocurrency and gaming, the assembled team has the experience, insight, and initial
designs available to readily solve the challenges ahead. This will usher in a new era of gamechanging
blockchain technology and a whole new gaming ecosystem.
