Kansas City based digital game store Coinplay.io has launched game bundles to help developers sell more copies of their games.
In March, Coinplay.io launched a brand new website ahead of their demo day pitch at BetaBlox, a Kansas City based startup incubator. At the event, Shane Park, CEO and co-founder of Coinplay.io, explained to a combined audience of 1,500 attendees over two days the aim of their business: to make selling PC games better.
Although the digital game store was originally concepted in March 2014 to sell PC games to consumers using various cryptocurrencies such as BitCoin, LiteCoin, and DogeCoin, extensive customer validation and mentoring from BetaBlox has helped the company narrow in on game bundles as their most lucrative first step.
“Before BetaBlox, everything I thought about business was just an assumption. Most businesses are a series of assumptions strung together,” said Park. “What BetaBlox did is teach us lean startup principles and challenged us with mentor lectures. It retrained us how to think and made us want to iterate. We put our product out there and get feedback on it.”
It was that feedback that has helped Coinplay.io to secure partnerships with several independent developers, as well as publishers and distributors. The store has been tracking user data meticulously and aims to sell over 10,000 copies by the end of the year.
“We weren’t even bookmarked by most people,” said Park. “Now that we sell games in bundles things have changed.”
The future is in the bundles
The fact that Coinplay.io accepts many types of digital currencies is still a strong differentiator even though other digital stores are doing the same.
“Half of our competitors accept BitCoin,” said Park. “Newegg and Dell accept it. It’s easier to do that now than ever before.”
