About Ludena Protocol
Ludena Protocol is a gamified social platform for worldwide gamers. It is essentially a comprehensive gaming-centric platform with social media Dapp, hyper casual P2P gaming platform and fee-less virtual item exchange. Our first Dapp is a reverse ICO project, GameTalkTalk, with over 3.5 million downloads from the Google Play store (mainly South Korean users).
The app's algorithm checks all users' mobile gaming information, such as time/money spent in each game downloaded. This big data is collected and used to match gaming companies to users that would be more inclined to spend time/money in their game genres. GameTalkTalk has over 200 game publishers as clients, who pay to market to their suited gamer communities. Users are rewarded with digital assets, "stars," for completing missions in and/or downloading new games.
The current reward asset will be converted to Ludena Protocol's native token, LDN, upon release of the Dapp version of GameTalkTalk, in addition to its global English version, in an effort to reach an international audience and expand the platform via various gaming verticals.
