RAWG is a Video game discovery platform that converts your skills into goods and services. RAWG, unofficially known as the 'IMDb of games', is a growing video game database and discovery platform with over 50,000 titles from across all popular gaming platforms that converts your gaming skills into goods and services.
Gamers on the platform will be rewarded RAWG tokens for in-game achievements from their favorite games. For users, the blockchain-based tokens can be used to redeem special offers from RAWG's partners and exchange them to other cryptocurrencies; however, advertisers can also use RAWG tokens to purchase ads on the RAWG platform to target players of similar preferences in the mass market.
RAWG was launched in April 2017, funded by the founders. In January RAWG raised a €1M seed round from Altair Capital, game company Wargaming, Game Insight chairman and IMI.VC founder Igor Matsanyuk, Zeptolab CEO Misha Lyalin, and others. The service is live at rawg.io. The crowdsale is scheduled for April 2018.
