Licensed Digital Watch Skins

Watch Skins solves the two biggest problems standing between major brands and smartwatch users: Authenticity & Scarcity.

Brands face rampant piracy in the current digital watch face market, and they lack the ability to reliably license and sell their digital intellectual property. Many smartwatch users want unique and scarce products, yet current offerings provide nearly unlimited designs and zero rarity.

The Next Wave
of Virtual Collectibles

Virtual collectibles are valued digital items that can be collected and traded. Many of today’s games and apps have built in economies which allow users to buy and sell virtual goods.

Users acquire these virtual collectibles in order to customize and enhance their experience within a game or virtual ecosystem. Watch Skins allows users to collect virtual watch faces and show their collections to the world!

How it Works

Watch Skins makes it simple to design and collect blockchain authenticated smartwatch faces.

Profile

To get started, users download the app, pair their mobile device to their smartwatch and create a profile.

Marketplace

When users login, they’re taken to the Marketplace. It’s the homepage of the app, with a news feed where they can browse the newest products, see the latest watch drops, and follow the hottest auctions – and it’s all tailored to their interests.

Configurator

With the Configurator, users can customize and create their own unique watch designs- and they’re all permanently stored on the blockchain. Users can choose from an almost endless amount of options, from hands, to colors, to backgrounds. Design the skin you want to purchase, and add it to your collection!

Collection

The Collection Screen allows users to browse their collection of watch faces that they’ve purchased, and choose the skin they want to display on their watch.

Auction

The auction feature is a peer to peer eBay-style experience that allows users to buy, sell, and trade faces with others on the platform anywhere in the world. With the app translated across multiple languages, it means a person in America can buy a watch face from a user in Japan in real time, and have it in their collection almost instantly. This gives users instant gratification by eliminating the time and cost of shipping.

Configuration

The Possibilities Are Endless

The Watch Skins marketplace offers a wide variety of amazing licensed brands, available in configurable and non-configurable limited editions. Users can also try the random configuration tool to create a unique surprise design!

Watch Skins can integrate with other smartwatch apps and services to deliver enhanced experiences like retrieving game scores for a sports themed watch face, or social media updates from the hottest celebrity-branded watch face.

Blockchain

The Watch Skins Marketplace is supported by blockchain and uses utility tokens called WATCH tokens. All token transactions are run on GoChain, a 100% Ethereum compatible network operating at speeds of up to 1300 transactions per second, making it one of the fastest blockchains available. This high-performance public blockchain allows for speeds 100x greater than Ethereum, and allows users all over the world to trade authenticated virtual collectibles almost instantly.

Token Utility

Distributed Ledger Technology is used to manage the authenticity, scarcity, and ownership of the digital watch faces.

When a collectible face is created, WATCH20 tokens are burned and exchanged for a WATCH721 Non Fungible Token that provides a validation mechanism for the face, ensuring the unique design is authenticated on the blockchain.

Current Market

Digital Collectibles

The world is witnessing the emergence of the digital collectible phenomenon. Digital collectibles are creating entirely new markets, based solely on virtual properties and visual appeal. Some examples include CryptoKittes, and gameskins marketplaces.

In 2017, one source valued the digital collectibles market at $35 billion, with digital card games alone valued at an estimated $3+ billion. Gaming and Art have a combined projected market size of over $200 billion for 2020, and are two of the strongest areas for growth in the digital collectibles space


Smart Watches

Smartwatches are the perfect home for digital collectibles, because users can share their collections with the world! There were 19 million smartwatches sold in 2015, and it is predicted that there will be 117 Million smartwatches sold in 2023.
