Competitor Analysis

How IHUNT is doing things differently

Reviewing the competitor feedback we discovered:

  • They do not offer cryptocurrency
  • Treasures can not be placed by player or business owner
  • No ability to place NFT’s
  • No white label services
  • Only offer small rewards (Often prizes are so small and not worth redeeming)
  • Players quickly figure out playtime vs reward is not worth it time and effort
  • They offer lengthy advertisements
  • They offer same repeat advertisements mostly from casino or other game providers
  • Offer a single game approach
  • Do not gain revenue from marketers

“that it contains lots of ads.”  “It really pays but a little amount.” “Has so many ads” “This app lies about the adverts it asks you to watch” “the ads are a scam.” 

The number one mistake other games are making is that they don’t have a working growth model in place. They try to compete against big players that have much more marketing resources at their disposal. Their constant struggle to attract traffic to their game prevents them from ever taking business from competitors. Due to the lack of an adoption strategy, we can see in hard evidence that post launch, their traffic plummets and demand decreases, resulting in a sell-off of their token. 

IHUNT is built with a focus on growth where everyone benefits:

  • Players earn tokens when searching for treasures and spreading the word;
  • Businesses gain customers when placing treasures around their locations
  • Whitelabel customers gain subsidised software costs for running advertising campaigns
  • IHUNT community benefit from the increase of traffic and adoption of the site
