Cristian Esposito — CEO of VisionGame
Q&A from KuCoin
Q: Could you please introduce yourself more and the VisionGame’s team to the KuCoin Community?
Cristian: My name is Cristian Esposito, CEO of VisionGame, and I've worked in the traditional gaming industry for more than a decade, first as a programmer, all the way to game designer, director, and higher, helping startups and Fortune 500, delivering compelling experiences for mobile and desktop. My involvement with the blockchain industry began in 2017, working for a former blockchain gaming company, during which I realized all the possible shortcomings that developers might face in this industry, hence the idea for VisionGame.
Aiding me through this journey, our CMO and our CTO:
Youngsung Chong, our CMO, has been an advisor and consultant to various blockchain projects. His marketing experience has been a tremendous asset to a mostly technical and creative team like ours.
Serhii Yolkin, our CTO, has developed several assets for the Unity Asset Store, reaching the top in their category, used by Google and Moon Studios (developers of Ori and the Blind Forest, a Microsoft Exclusive). He's also developed the tech behind Ballast VR, a VR system for acquaparks, and in general, he's always on top of the latest, exciting technology.
Aside from the team's core members, we're rapidly expanding to deliver the first release of all our products. We also have a dedicated game development team that will be able to aid projects in the technical aspects that they might have the most trouble with, plus other exciting things.
Q: What are the main core products of VisionGame?
Cristian: VisionGame aims to help gaming companies develop tomorrow's industrial standards through a series of tools that ease up development, simplify user onboarding, and achieve fundraising they need directly through the fans that love their products, thanks to a next-gen Crowdfunding portal. It is a mix of products, know-how, and services that takes game development companies through the hurdles of the industry.
Our product lineup starts with VisionSDK, providing easy handholding access to popular blockchains, like Solana, allowing developers without any particular blockchain know-how to quickly implement the features required nowadays by GameFi.
VisionOffering, our crowdfunding platform, lets projects connect with players, building a loyal community during the process thanks to its social features that allow users to comment and developers to engage.
Our consultancy and development services allow us to help any project in any stage of production.
In simpler terms, we're providing the full game publisher experience powered by the blockchain.
Q: Why does the blockchain industry need Vision SDK?
Cristian: VisionSDK is a product intended for both the traditional and the blockchain video game industry. Traditional companies won't necessarily need to build an entire blockchain team to figure out how to navigate the technological hurdles of the market, but its features can be just as crucial for Blockchain companies. It not only saves a lot of time and resources that can be dedicated to improving the engagement and entertainment aspects of the product, but also comes with specific game development features that can prove to be useful for any project.
Real-time and turn-based multiplayer, for example, with matchmaking solutions built-in and general optimizations that help avoid the pitfalls of game development.
It's needed because it speeds up development and allows developers to deal with the core, entertaining aspects of their games rather than having to bang their heads as they deal with new technology, and we're all in when it comes to better games!
Q: Will Vision SDK support multiple blockchains?
Cristian: Absolutely! The architecture of the VisionSDK was always intended for a multichain approach. We’re starting with solutions like Enjin and Solana, but we have many more in store. The idea is to empower developers, not limit them, so any blockchain where developers would like their game to be or that we feel can be beneficial to the industry, we’re going to support.
Q: Will VisionGame have its own native game?
Cristian: Oh yes! We are still working on the first title, VisionChimps (tentative title). It's a game about space-traveling primates discovering a bountiful planet of their favorite food, bananas! Little do they know, those bananas have teeth and a bad temper. It's an isometric looter shooter, and we're currently working hard to deliver the first playable demo.
Right now, anybody can follow our progress on https://visionoffering.io.
As a game publisher, we want to lead the production changes of the future. So there's no better way than our own game to start things off.
Q: What is in the roadmap for VisionGame?
Cristian: We're currently working hard to deliver our first version of VisionOffering, currently in its Early Registration stage.
VisionSDK is also getting battle-tested, soon to be open for early adopters.
VisionChimps, our first game, is currently getting a lot of love from our development team as well.
We've also announced our VisionVIP membership program (make sure to register on VisionOffering to be among the lucky ones for an airdrop) and our ambassador program that just rolled out. There's a lot more we're planning to announce and a lot more to deliver, but you can definitely look forward to a constant stream of updates and releases throughout the upcoming months.
Free-Ask from KuCoin Community
Q: You said that VisionOffering isn't a launchpad for games. Does it mean that any related project can be listed to utilize its feature? In addition, is there any process for vetting?
Cristian: VisionOffering is a crowdfunding platform in the sense that it won't run sales for 1-2 days. But it allows developers to build a community over a longer period. Hence, the social aspects that are built within the platform. Users can comment and engage with developers; there are developer's blogs and updates, and more.
Initially, our focus will be on video games, and we have a vetting process to ensure the validity and safety of each project. As the platform expands, we will welcome a wider range of productions.
Q: What are the special privileges of the VisionVIP?
Cristian: VisionVIP is our exclusive membership program soon to roll out fully! You can learn more here.
VisionVIP membership is meant for our most enthusiastic supporters, who would like to get a behind-the-scenes look, early access to projects, special airdrops, and even private sale access to some of the projects we will support. It's the main way to get special perks within our entire ecosystem! We're currently planning a special airdrop for the first batch of VisionVip cards; registering at https://visionoffering.io is one of the main ways for a chance at getting one!
Q: What is your strongest advantage that you think will make your team lead the market?
Cristian: I believe we have what it takes to thrive in the market because of our decades of game development experience and the range of expertise. We're looking at the market long-term, supporting games within the industry which probably nobody has ever done before. Not only through our services but also our knowledge, consultancy, and development capabilities at the service of the projects we help and support. The goal is to improve the level of the production across the entire industry, one game at a time until it won't be like blockchain gaming anymore, just gaming.
Q: I am interested in investing in your project. When and where can I buy your tokens? Is it listed already?
Cristian: We are already listed on exchanges! $VISION is proudly listed on KuCoin, and of course, Huobi, Bitmart, and Bitget.
Q: Please provide us with your official telegram group links and social media links. I have seen many similar groups.
Cristian: Follow us on all our socials to stay updated about our progress, releases, and events!
