The platform solves the immense issues experienced in esports, including monetization, market fragmentation, limited accessibility, insecurity, and fraud.
- Environmental Impact (0 to 50) = 50
Concerning its impact on the environment, IGG tokens flow throughout the esports ecosystem and cannot be mined via PoW consensus. It, therefore, has a minimal environmental impact.
- Decentralization (0 to 50) = 20
Intergalactic Gaming operates on the Tron blockchain. However, there have been serious claims leveled against TRON, stating that the DPOS mechanism is pseudo-decentralized, causing a problem of centralized voting. This could have an impact on the projects based on Tron, including IGG – although a project as well managed as IGG could/should look to leave the Tron network in the future.
Security (-250 to 0) = -140
- DDoS Attacks (-100 to 0) = -50
The DDoS Attacks on the Tron blockchain where hackers employed a malicious smart contract to mine TRX. Since Intergalactic Gaming is built on the Tron blockchain, there could be a severe potential security threat on its token-Intergalactic Gold (IGG).
- Potential for Being Banned ( -100 to 0) = -40
Intergalactic Gaming aims at interconnecting the world through the love of Gaming while providing opportunities and rewards for grassroots gamers and teams. The platform is based in the UK, a country that seems to be embracing cryptocurrency (though with air-tight restrictions). It, therefore, faces minimal chances of facing a ban. However, the future of the project can be perceived to be 50/50 since it is aligned with the success of Tron though they do of course have the possibility to move to a better platform than Tron or even go it alone. This seems feasible as they are the largest independent project on the Tron network and are being frozen out of the SR positions by projects backed by Justin Sun (Tron) and CZ (Binance).
- Network Vulnerabilities ( -50 to 0) = -50
The use of blockchain such as Intergalactic Gaming in esports is faced with serious vulnerabilities, including insecure gateways and external APIs and disabling security filters. IGG is also built on Tron, which faces several critical vulnerabilities that allow hackers to override the blockchain’s integrity by producing blocks and collecting mining rewards.
Use Case (0 to 500) = 330
- Initial Main Use Case (0 to 100) = 100
The initial main use case of Intergalactic Gaming was to provide a platform whereby a central token on the TRON blockchain can be used as a tradeable value in the platform. The developers wanted IGG to be the designated currency in the prize pools, for player compensation, to buy merchandise, or for a range of other activities. The IG platform also enables IG’s partners to create their own tokens, which can be traded against IGG on the IG platform and other partner exchanges.
With eSports being the largest, most played and most watched “sport” on the planet (yes, bigger even than football/soccer) this is a serious and legitimate use case.
