About Carv Project
Firm aims to protect players identity data by providing decentralized identity solutions to players. At the same time, with this decentralized identity, it aims to create a platform where players can manage their activities, achievements and income in games from a single screen by creating a player-oriented identity structure.
In addition, Carv is creating a data infrastructure for game studios to accurately recognize players and support the improvement of content for players.
Victor Yu, CARV’s co-founder and COO said;
“Gamer activities span across devices, platforms, and into real life. However, their time, effort, and money spent remain data points scattered across isolated ecosystems, with limited value to gamers. By creating the infrastructure to piece these breadcrumbs together, we are unlocking exciting opportunities in how gamers interact in the gaming universe. There is a paradigm shift in how games think about user acquisition, business model, and in-game economy design. With the shift comes challenges to games’ sustainability. CARV is uniquely positioned to work with game partners to address these challenges.”
