What kind of competitive advantages does the project have?
The GameStars Token platform idea was born in surroundings of professional cyber athletes, who felt problems with cybersport themselves, and understand, which decisions would reform situation.
We offer integrated solution for different level cyber athletes that allow them to progress like a professional and get reward in full and in time.

GameStars platform offers functional that allows cyber athlete to get financing to his progress via Cyberathlete Initial Coin Offering (further CICO) procedure, sponsor or investor can estimate potential of cyber athlete based on analytical data and statistics, that platform provides.
⦁ High incoming threshold for amateur cyber athletes.
GameStars platform allows cyberathletes possibility to take action in many different level tournaments, giving access to gaining necessary experience for tournament playing and increasing chances of reward receiving.
⦁ Amateur cyber athletes often did not get the full amount of reward because of low level of conditions of cooperation in contracts with team managers or lack of these conditions.
Distribution of cyber athlete’s profit on GameStars platform is strictly defined and fully automatic through the player’s smart-contract. Using block chain technology, crypto-tokens and smart-contracts makes calculation process clear and excludes possibility of fraud, data substitution or cheating.
⦁ The lack of reward paying to the tournament winner.
GameStars platform solves this problem using smart-contracts in tournaments.
⦁ The issue of guaranteeing the compliance with the conditions of the tournament, as well as refunding contributions in case of tournament cancellation.
On the GameStars platform, all terms and conditions of tournaments are placed in the tournaments’ smart contracts in the form of a set of parameters that allow unambiguous description of the outcome of the tournament based on data received from the API of the gaming service or the game used in the tournament. The tournament’s prize money is stored on the balance sheet of the smart contract and cannot be appropriated by any third parties. If the tournament is canceled, all funds are returned to the addresses from which they were received.
⦁ Organizing your own tournament is expensive and is affordable only for large companies.
The GameStars platform allows you to organize your own tournament quickly and effortlessly. Organizers of tournaments can include the players themselves, the GameStars platform, or sponsors.
How the platform will earn?
At the expense of the commissions for tournaments (3% of the prize money), the percentage of the cyber athlete's income (10% of the income), if the issue of the smart contract and the Cyberathlete ICO procedure is paid by the platform, another user of the GameStars platform (if Basic smart contract is applied).
Why does the user need to create a personal smart contract? What are its functions?
The purpose of the GameStars platform is to provide opportunities for aspiring and established cyber athletes to get investment for their further development. The second task is to make the investment process transparent, flexible, and honest.
These tasks are solved by using the technology of block chain and smart contracts.
Creation of a personal smart contract on the GameStars platform is necessary for the player to be able to launch the Cyberathlete Initial Coin Offering (CICO) procedure and release personal cyber athlete tokens in order to attract resources for the development of the cyber athlete.
The code of the smart contract is generated by the GameStars platform and contains the following:
- A set of properties and methods complying with the ERC20 standard
- A set of properties, methods and interfaces necessary to carry out unique identification of the cyber athlete, to ensure the operation of the CICO procedure and the mechanism allocating revenues among the holders of the tokens of this smart contract.
Thus, in a smart contract, the terms of cooperation and payment of rewards to the player, team, investors and the GameStars platform are fixed. Applying of smart contract technology makes the settlement process transparent and eliminates the possibility of fraud.
Cybersport tournaments. How to create and participate in tournaments on the GameStars platform?
Tournaments based on smart contracts on the GameStars platform solve the problem of non-payment of prize money and introducing changes to competition terms after the start of the tournament. Using the platform’s web interface, anyone can launch a local tournament among friends on fixed conditions and be sure that players will not be deceived, the prize money will be allocated according to the set scheme, and the tournament conditions will remain unchanged in the process.
Therefore, players get new opportunities for holding their own tournaments on clearly defined conditions with confidence in their outcomes. Brands, on the other hand, get a chance to involve famous players, sponsors, and advertisers in their tournaments.
How to create a tournament and take part in it?
⦁ A GameStars platform user who wants to launch his/her own tournament, sets the following tournament parameters using the web interface (game, number of participants, start date, selection of the prize money allocation system)
⦁ The GameStars platform generates a smart contract containing recorded tournament terms.
⦁ If a player is invited by the tournament organizers, or agrees to participate in the tournament, the system sends him/her the address of the smart contract
⦁ If the player agrees to the terms and conditions of the tournament, he/she transfers the entry fee sum in GST tokens to the smart contract, thereby agreeing to the terms and confirming his/her participation.
⦁ The tournament starts at the specified time and is held according to the pre-set conditions. The platform tracks all match results through the API of the gaming service or game.
⦁ After the tournament is over, the platform sends the results to the smart contract which automatically transfers the prize money to the tournament’s prize-winners.
⦁ 3% of the prize money is transferred to the GameStars platform as a service fee.
The GameStars platform will offer an opportunity to organize team competitions (tournaments in the 1v1 format, and 5v5). The GameStars platform also provides an opportunity for third-party sponsors (e-sports organizations, representatives of leagues, communities, etc.) to hold tournaments. Participation in such tournaments will be free for players. The prize money fund is formed by the sponsor. In addition to setting tournament parameters, the sponsor can set player admission criteria for the tournament, or provide access to the tournament by invites. The platform will organize tournaments in various games (Dota2, League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone, StarCraft 2, CS:GO etc.) on a regular basis. Prize money for such tournaments will be taken from the Bonus Fund, formed from a portion (share) of the platform's service fees (issuing players' smart contracts, fees received from holding tournaments, etc.).
What games does the platform connected to?
The platform will organize tournaments in various games (Dota2, League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone, StarCraft 2, CS:GO etc.) on a regular basis. Players (teams) will be invited to participate on the tournaments by the Gamestars platform.
Internal exchange of tokens
In order to enable players and their potential investors to trade in personal tokens, there will be developed a mechanism of internal exchange on the GameStars platform. On the exchange, anyone can buy cyberathletes’ personal tokens offered for sale for GST tokens. Players, their teams, or investors, in turn, can offer them for sale. Investors will be able to access statistics on both the player and his/her personal tokens which should inform the right investment decision.
How can I earn using the platform?
GST is a utility token, which is intended for mutual settlements within the system. When buying GST, you can participate in tournaments, exchange tokens on the internal exchange for Cyberathelts tokens or ETH to get a part of their income, create your own Cyberathlete ICO in order to get investments for its further development as a Cyberathlete.
Will I be able to earn money on a coin?
GST is a utility token, which is intended for mutual settlements within the system. We took care of the price of the coin to grow: we offer a competitive solution in a dynamic and rapidly developing market. The emission of the token is limited - 325 000 000 GST and after the sale the tokens will not be released any more. In addition, tokens used to create smart contracts are frozen for 2 years. Thus, when 5000 profi users or 17 500 ordinary users register inside the platform, there is a deficit of tokens. For actions on the platform, new users will buy tokens on the exchange. Great demand, as a rule, leads to a rapid growth of the rate.
