acQyr eXchange (QX) is a cloud-based platform for issuing, tracking, exchanging, and redeeming loyalty rewards across multiple rewards programs in any market. Our first entry is in the mobile and video gaming industry to help game publishers increase retention and grow revenue through personalized offers and loyalty rewards.
acQyr eXchange is well positioned to deliver and rapidly expand our Offering in the mobile/video gaming industry:
- Over $8 million invested to develop IP, platform, and go-to-market strategy, including extensive pilots and testing in the retail market, with MasterCard.
- Deployed our Version 1.0 for the mobile gaming and video market in 4Q of last year.
- Six signed LOIs with game publishers/developers for onboarding and growing our market presence.
- Ported our IP and platform to Amazon AWS to allow for national and international scaling and expansion.
- Currently enhancing and deploying our personalized offers and rewards AI technology, thereby allowing game publishers and developers to reduce CAC and increase LTV.
The mobile and video gaming industry is currently experiencing double digit annual growth. There’s over 2.7 billion gamers worldwide and three out of four people in the United States are fueling this rapid growth.
While great for the industry, Customer Acquisition Costs (CAC) are growing and the Life-Time Value (LTV) of gamers for each game is diminishing. Social media, app stores, gaming platforms, and other marketing methods are proving to be less effective and more costly across the industry.
QX is a public exchange to track and manage the rewards (loyalty rewards, earned prizes, etc.) gamers acquire online and redeem them into money. Our initial market will be mobile and online gaming. Gamers can manage, exchange, and redeem their gaming digital assets from multiple games on the exchange with our QX mobile app.
acQyr eXchange delivers a well-proven method of issuing targeted offers and rewards to attract new customers and retain existing ones, thereby lowering CAC increasing LTV. This strategy has been a staple in the retail industry for nearly 70 years, where loyalty programs have been proven to increase sales and profits, reduce churn, and lower the cost of acquiring new customers.
We generate our revenues from four primary sources:
- Small transaction fees (similar to currency exchange fees) for exchanging and redeeming in-game and issued rewards
- Premium membership fees
- QX Issuer fees for issuing, tracking, and redeeming targeted offers
- Premium service revenue-sharing with other fintech and value-added delivery companies that bring enhanced services to our premium members.
In 2020, the mobile and video gaming industry generated $160B in worldwide revenues and has an expected CAGR of 10.5% over the next 5 years according to Newzoo. There are over 2.7 billion gamers worldwide, with three out of four people in the US playing games (245 million). The market is expected to continue to outpace other entertainment industries.

Today, we are announcing an engagement of Rackspace Technology to strategically enhance our public exchange with an event sharing pipeline (ESP) for the mobile and video gaming industry. This proprietary infrastructure will give us a competitive advantage in capturing in-game events across multiple games that will be processed and applied to targeted offers and rewards for gamers. We expect to be able to process tens of thousands of in-game events per minute. Amazon Web Services is supporting this effort through their extensive cloud services. This ESP will be a key component of our targeted offers and rewards platform (Phase 2) scheduled for release in 3rd quarter of this year.Read Press Release

Thank you to all of our shareholders for your continuing support: (1) Our first game, Crimson Company, is issuing tournament vouchers for exchange and redemption on acQyr eXchange. We expect to provide a method later this month that allows redemption by international players. (2) ePlay Digital is completing their integration, and we expect their first game to be live on QX in March. We have also completed a quick development and test of integrating QX via Google Play Game Services (GPGS), which should allow our 3rd QX partner, Studio 85, and other GPGS-hosted games to onboard their games.

Thank you for your continued support to position the Company for an exciting 2022. Below is a brief update on our January progress and positioning for market expansion:
(1) We are live with Crimson Company (publisher) and have several of their gamers on our QX app. We are adding ePlay Digital games soon; they are completing the required integration steps on their end. A third publisher has signed our agreement and we hope to add several more publishers this quarter.
(2) We are continuing to actively raise funds to execute our plan and make incremental debt payments. Currently, our focus is on funding for implementing our proprietary event-sharing infrastructure and exploring methods to protect our IP (patents, trademarks, etc.). Based on discussions to date, Amazon will likely provide funding for ½ of this project as an incentive to grow our platform on AWS. We are also seeking additional funding to gradually pay down our private debt.
(3) I was selected to present our progress and positioning for the rapidly emerging play-to-earn (p2e) opportunity in the mobile and video gaming market at the KiwiTech Fintech Demo Day on Thursday, January 27th. We had several Fintech investment groups in attendance and the presentation went well.
(4) I have attached the press release on our positioning for the p2e opportunity. Starting this week, our industry insider is presenting this business opportunity to several publishers, some of whom we hope to become QX partners in the next few weeks.
(5) Our Phase 2 development continues to make good progress. The team is now focused on completing the necessary enhancements to the QX application, including targeted offers and rewards. The partner and admin portals that were released in 4Q21 are being enhanced with additional functionality and features.
As always, I welcome your questions and suggestions.
