Minimum Viable Product
SteemKnights (@steemknights) is the first multiplayer 3D game on the steem blockchain. Each game takes place on a chess like battlefield with several knights on it. The players have to set a stationary king. The battles play out with the rock, paper, scissors principle only with sword, bow and wand. Additionally you have one trap on your field wich kills every knight that is walking into it instantly. The goal of the game is to reach the enemy king and slay him with one of his own knights.
Fiat Revenue Strategy:
For every game the player bets a fixed amount of steem and we take a fee for matchmaking (10%). 20% percent of this fee will be distributed in the daily payout to the players.
Fiat Revenue Projections in $/user every month:
How will this increase the amount of STEEM being powered up?
Every move in the game is a separated transaction in the blockchain. This results in many transactions the user has to make resulting in an increasing amount of steempower.
What financial incentives are you willing to provide to Steemit, Inc.?
50% curation rewards earned from the delegation during the delegation period to be burned.
How will you become financially sustainable once the delegation is removed?
The delegation should help us building a larger user base. This will sustain our revenue flow on it's own.

C. It will be used to incentivize the creation of content that promotes Steem on external platforms

We agree that our business will continue to leverage the Steem blockchain as long as we are receiving a delegation and 1 year following the removal of the delegation.

We are willing to sign a legally binding contract with Steemit, Inc. to this effect.
