Company Summary

Two guys are playing a head-to-head boxing game on their phones. One's on a bus, the other's at work. They’re really into it; they each have buck on the fight, and the winner takes the other guy’s buck. And the developer takes 8 cents. Thanks to per-fight fees, the developer sees revenue on every play of the game. Their app is not just a product anymore, it’s a business. We gave them that, with our cash-gaming platform: the Kydaemos Server.
