Into decentralized gaming

Flip House has established itself as a trailblazer in the decentralized Play-to-Earn (P2E) gaming arena on the Internet Computer (ICP) blockchain. With its initial success in offering a simple, engaging game where players wager on coin flip outcomes to win ICP tokens, Flip House is poised for a transformative evolution. This white paper outlines the strategic transition of IC Flip into a decentralized autonomous organization (Flip DAO), aiming to cultivate a more extensive gaming ecosystem that capitalizes on the robust capabilities of the ICP blockchain. Our vision is to diversify and innovate within the P2E gaming space, thereby broadening our community reach and further democratizing the gaming experience.

The inception of Flip House marked a significant milestone in blockchain-based gaming by merging straightforward gameplay with the potential for earning through the ICP blockchain. The game's ability to attract a diverse player base highlighted the demand for decentralized gaming solutions that are not only fun but also economically rewarding. Transitioning to a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) structure, Flip House is set to expand its ecosystem to include a variety of P2E games, fostering a rich, interactive gaming environment.

Flip House Architecture

We have deployed our first game to arcade called IC Flip ( which is fully on chain and open sourced. The entire game is fully deployed in canisters which will be under the control of FLIP DAO post SNS. For the fairness and safety we have deployed a hash generator that ensures the game outcomes are random and fair, here we are using SHA-256 Hash Generator which is a cryptographic hash function that generates random numbers or game conditions based on the seed and entropy.

The detailed architecture diagram is shown below.

The Internet Computer and SNS

The Internet Computer and Service Nervous System (SNS)

At the core of Flip House’s operations is the Internet Computer blockchain, distinguished by its innovative Service Nervous System (SNS). The SNS facilitates decentralized governance and the continuous evolution of applications deployed on the ICP network. By aligning FLIP DAO with the SNS, we are committed to upholding the principles of decentralized community governance and leveraging blockchain technology to its fullest potential, thus promoting an open and inclusive gaming universe.

Flip DAO: A Vision for Decentralized Gaming

The establishment of Flip DAO represents a pivotal shift towards a governance model that places power in the hands of the community. This model not only enhances transparency and stakeholder engagement but also opens up new avenues for growth and innovation in the gaming sector. Through the DAO, stakeholders can propose, vote on, and implement changes and new features, driving forward the collective vision of a decentralized gaming ecosystem.

As Flip House transitions to Flip DAO, our goal is to not only sustain the momentum gained from our initial gaming model but also to significantly expand our offerings and influence in the decentralized gaming market. By embracing the capabilities of the ICP blockchain and fostering a vibrant, engaged gaming community, Flip DAO is set to redefine the boundaries of P2E gaming.

Future Directions and Strategic Objectives

In the forthcoming phases, Flip DAO will introduce a series of new P2E games, each designed to integrate seamlessly with the ICP blockchain’s distinctive features. Our strategic focus will be on:

  • Enhancing Player Engagement: By introducing diverse game mechanics and reward structures, we aim to keep the gaming experience fresh and engaging.

  • Innovating Game Forms: Exploring untapped areas of P2E gaming to provide unique, blockchain-native experiences that attract a broader audience.

  • Leveraging the FLIP Token Economy: Utilizing the intrinsic tokenomics of the FLIP token to incentivize gameplay, governance participation, and ecosystem growth.
