Founded & led by the 12-year old gamer turned CEO

“Why should coins get stuck in games I no longer want to play? I was coming home from school and my dad was explaining the new big thing, crypto. At the time, I was frustrated because whenever I quit a game I lost all my hard-work, time, effort, and worst of all, my coins. I know my friends share my frustration. With Quarters, you will have one wallet for all of your games.” 

— George Weiksner, 12, CEO

Problem

Players leave millions behind in games that they no longer play

Virtual currencies (Coins, Gold, Gems, etc.) are used in games across genres and platforms. Players buy these currencies with real money. 

Players usually don't spend all of the virtual currency. When they want to play a new game, they have to abandon their winnings and start again from scratch. 

This leaves millions of dollars frozen inside games, every day!


Solution

Quarters are universal gaming tokens

Quarters are the universal virtual currency for gaming, usable across different games and platforms.

Players have a single wallet with Quarters. When they start playing a new game, they can transfer Quarter coins to that game.  When they don’t want to play that game any more, they can transfer Quarters back to their wallet, and use them in other games.

Quarters are designed specifically for playing games and not for storing value. Like classic arcade tokens (i.e. Chuck E Cheese), you can buy Quarters but you can’t redeem them outside of the gaming ecosystem.

You are investing in Q2 tokens, which pay you royalties on the sales of Quarters tokens, not the gaming-centered Quarters tokens. See “Token Economics” for more info.

How it works:

1. Register to get a Quarters wallet

2. Buy Quarters with USD or ETH (Quarters have a fixed price for players)

3. Approve transfer of Quarters to developer

4. Play game, potentially earning more Quarters

Quarters help game developers

Game developers compete to collect Quarters from game players. Players transfer Quarters to developers in order to play games. In turn, developers (but not players) exchange Quarters for Ether, based on a formula set in the smart contract.

Quarters can incentivize game adoption. Players get free Quarters when they sign up, and whenever the number of Quarters sold doubles. Free Quarters are a fun reward for everyone in the Quarters ecosystem.

For further detail on the Quarters ecosystem, you can read the Quarters Whitepaper.


Traction

With the core infrastructure built and key partnerships lined up, the Quarters ecosystem is prepared for rapid adoption by players and developers. Highlights include:

1. We’ve launched Quarters and the portal, pocketfulofquarters.com — tokens are already available for purchase by players with an email address and a credit card — it's that easy!  

2. Tools and API for developers — with a few lines of codes, developers can accept Quarters in their games. We currently support JavaScript, Node, Unity IOS and Android, and PlayFab. In addition, developers can use our API on any platform.

3. Technology partnership with Matic.network to enable us to scale Quarters transactions without creating congestion on the Ethereum mainnet or incurring excessive fees.

4. Distribution partnerships with influencers via Rise9 (www.rise9app.com). Rise9 influencers have over 700,000,000 followers in their community.

5. Raised $400,000 from leading media figures and investors including Michelle Phan, Ugur Koyoglu and other angel investors in a SAFE note and in a private pre-sale of Q2 tokens (same tokens you are investing in).

Market

Revenue from video games is about seven times (7x) bigger than movies and music combined.  One in seven people play video games globally, which is about 1.2B people.

Video games are a $138B market, growing rapidly (>10% per year).


Competition

Quarters are intended to be the first gaming token desired by players, distributed directly to players, that has a stable value and works across platforms. Meanwhile, traditional in-game currencies are stuck in each game. Other gaming cryptocurrencies that we are aware of have fixed token supplies with fluctuating values.


What's next

We’re on track to launch the Quarters Beta by December 2018.

Our version 1 was a success: we’ve collected a lot of valuable customer feedback and implemented it into an upcoming v.2, which we plan to launch at the end of 2018.

This fall, we will open up a waitlist, and let some players and their friends test our first games. Gaming influencers will play the games to get players excited about Quarters. Then we will launch the Beta to the public for mid-December 2018.


Team

We have an amazing team backing George and his vision. This award-winning team has decades of experience in the gaming and technology industry.

Investor Resources


Quarters vs Q2 Tokens

When you investing in this deal, you’re investing in Q2 tokens, not Quarters tokens.

Quarters Tokens

Quarters (symbol:Q) are a token designed for game use only. They’re available for sale on PocketfulOfQuarters.com, can be earned as rewards for participating, and - by design - cannot be sold back for financial gain.

Players can use Quarters to play games within our ecosystem. Game developers compete to collect Quarters from game players. Players transfer Quarters to developers in order to play games. In turn, developers (but not players) exchange Quarters for Ether, based on a formula set in the smart contract.

Q2 Tokens

Q2 (symbol: Q2) are revenue-sharing tokens, designed to attract the initial investment needed to jumpstart the Quarters ecosystem. Q2 tokens are royalty tokens that distribute the  ETH dividends earned as Quarters are sold.

Q2 investors earn royalties on the sale of Quarters whenever Quarters are bought via the smart contract. When that happens:

  • 15% goes to Q2 holders; and
  • 85% is held in escrow to pay to game developers as players use Quarters in their games.

Q2 holders will earn royalties from the sale of Quarters proportional to their ownership of the Q2 network.

POQ Issuer, LLC is conducting this debt offering, with principal plus 20% interest payable by Tokens (Q2) in lieu of cash, as per the terms of the DPA Agreement. Please carefully review the entire DPA for complete offering terms. POQ Issuer, LLC is a Delaware company and an affiliate of Pocketful of Quarters, Inc., a service company to help promote the adoption of the Quarters ecosystem.
