Abstract
DMarket is a global marketplace solution that turns every virtual item into a real
commodity. This paper discusses how we combine blockchain technologies and
seven years of industry experience to open this multi-billion dollar market to
the existing world economy. All that time people spend playing games on their
mobile, PC, console or any other platform could finally be worth something.
Essentially, DMarket is a new ecosystem where gamers, developers, and
entrepreneurs can efficiently and securely evaluate and trade virtual items.
Thus, DMarket creates a new economy that joins with existing real-equity
markets.
Early-access to the present paper was given to a number of individuals from
the gaming industry and blockchain community. The authors deeply thank
and acknowledge the comments and criticisms that have made the design of
DMarket and this whitepaper as good as they are. Any faults that remain are,
of course, the authors’.

Introduction
In real life, whether you are a lawyer, a crypto trader, a game developer or a
miner, you spend time, experience, and even luck working to achieve something.
This always results in a new experience and/or real assets. And since it is yours,
you can sell, gift it or just throw any asset away.
Around 2.3 billion people play games
on different platforms and devices,
creating
a gaming industry that in 2016 reached $100 billion and continues to
boom.
Only 4,000 pro gamers make a profit from the time and skill they spend
gaming, including the trading of in-game items they accumulate. Just a couple
of games accumulating only 6% of the global audience made a turnover of $4
billion of in-game items. The rest of gamers are out of the market.
The existing technologies cannot connect the many game universes and
platforms together. As a result, players are stuck with their useless items,
despite their time and effort. The growth of the gaming audience and the rise

Market & Industry
Video Games & VR
There are approximately 2.3 billion gamers across the globe who are expected
to generate revenue of $109 billion in 2017
1
. This shows a $7.8 billion (7.8%)
growth compared to 2016. Digital game revenue will account for about $95
billion (87%) of the global market.
Users

Digital e-Commerce & Gaming Market Analysis
In this section, we review the biggest players in the global in-game items
trading market.
The
Steam
platform was released on September 12, 2003. Over the past 4 years,
it has gained enormous popularity among the gaming community, reaching
$3.5 billion revenue in 2016
3
. This platform was the first to allow trading of in-
game items, but all the profit received from trading is held inside the platform,
without the possibility of cashing the money out. Moreover, the possibility to
trade in-game items is very limited and presented in just a few games (CS:GO,
DOTA2, TF2, PUBG, H1Z1).
Steam Pros:
• Steam has become the largest marketplace for video games and mods
commercialization;
• It had $3.5 billion revenue in 2016. Steam’s rate of acquisition and catalog
offering have shown rapid growth. Up to this day, almost 370 million paid
games have been activated;
• Steam also offers many servic...

Here are some figures that show average daily Steam user numbers and the
overall number of games connected to Steam:
• Number of daily active users
4
: 12 853 536 (as of 2017-07-15);
• Number of games
5
: +- 14 398 (as of 2017-07-15).
Opskins
is an in-game items trading marketplace that was launched in
December 2014. The service implements the Steam API to enable the trading
of in-game items. Currently, Opskins is the biggest skins trading platform on
the planet with ten million unique users monthly.
Opskins pros:
• Q1-Q2 2017 turnover conducted around $250 million;
• One of the biggest communities for skins trading (over 10 million users
monthly
6
);
• Real money cashout.
Opskins cons:
• Doesn’t have official support from Steam (lots of account fraud);
• High fees for transaction and cashout (up to 10%);
• Supports only a few Steam games;
• Due to the use of the Steam API, is highly dependent o...

Problem Definition
Every minute spent in-game leaves gamers with virtual goods. This could be
new armor, a fancy car or just a pile of crystals. Unfortunately, there is no easy
way (or no way at all) to trade these virtual assets among the billions of gamers
around the world.
Game universes are not connected to each other, which means there is no
safe and easy way to trade between them, and no reliable way to approve
these trades. It was not technologically possible to build a bridge between the
dozens of game engines, independent and global game developers, and the
mobile and console worlds.
More than 70% of the 15 million games we sold in the last 5 years is 2 or more
years old.
There are currently thousands of games, where people can potentially
trade and exchange digital items. But this is impossible, due to the inability of
game developers to provide local trading markets for each game.
Billions of gamers possess rare items, fancy items, memorabilia...

and tradable gaming content.
Users (players as well as developers) will be able to leverage their own
achievements and time spent. DMarket will also be an easy place to start
showing off to other players. This adds a completely new dimension to game
virtual assets: the notion of virtual capital.
HOW DMARKET WORKS
For Gamers
We want to provide an opportunity for every gamer (DMarket user) in the world
to be able to evaluate their time, skills and luck. Gamers will be able to perform
easy, one-click buy/sell, exchange, and evaluation of every possible game
asset, item, skin, or another game object. To make this possible, each DMarket
user will be provided with an account on a full-time basis. The account will
preserve all data in our decentralized database and interact with users utilizing
smart contracts.
