HashUp Ecosystem
HashUp is the first decentralized open source, bringing DeFi models to the world of game and software publishing and distribution software.
Documentation is currently being developed.
HashUp is the first decentralized open source software distribution platform, bringing DeFi models to the world of game and software publishing and distribution. HashUp creates entirely new digital software license media using decentralized finance. By combining the advantages of physical and digital software license media, a digital cartridge for games and a digital floppy disk for software were created.
The digital game cartridge allows the free exchange of digital copies of games, which in turn leads to a free market price setting and the creation of a secondary market, where the game creator earns money.
The digital cartridge is created on the GameContract.io platform. HashUp does not charge any commissions for distribution, as it is not an intermediary between the Creator and the Player. All aftermarket rules are defined by the Creators themselves, and they can also turn it off, which would resemble the current digital distribution model (where the only one sending licenses is the distributor).
Listing of cartridges and their prices is handled by GameCap.io. All cartridge exchanges and player game libraries are transparent and visible on Gamexplorer.io. The document that publicly describes the game secondary trading rules and game description is GamePaper. GamePaper.io is a platform for community game fundraising.
At the same time, HashUp is introducing a token for software exchanges: # (i.e. hash). Our goal is to decentralize the distribution of games and software. Our license carriers enable P2P exchange of software and games. With HashUp, games will be cheaper thanks to the free market, and Creators will earn more thanks to decentralized finance.
HashUp motto:
''Yes, but we can win a major battle in the arms race and gain a new territory of freedom for several years.'' - Satoshi Nakamoto
HashUp is not a publisher or intermediary. It is a tool for publishing games and software without intermediaries.

HashUp mission

Our mission, in a nutshell, is to decentralize and democratize the games and software market. We want everyone to be able to release their own game and sell it without any commissions. We want to give Creators a tool to create a secondary market economy on their terms. We want players to be able to swap software. We want the price of software to be determined by supply and demand. We want to own the games we bought. We want to be able to send a game to a friend. We want to fight corporations by decentralizing the world. We want to bring the free market to the software market. Because software wants to be made free.

Free market of games and software

A free market in software naturally emerges when we allow people to own digital versions of software. People can then exchange software and thus sell it. Supply and demand sets the price of software in a free software market; in a centralized market, the producer sets the price. A free software market will discover the true price of software.

Free software market paradox

The free market for games and software, and the ability to freely exchange software, does not cause Creators to make less money. On the contrary - developers of good games thanks to decentralized finance will earn about 2-5x more than with centralized distributors.
In centralized distributors, the Creators are the dictators of price, just as in socialism. In decentralized distributors, the Creators are the dictators of supply. This change in the role of Creators makes Creators much more powerful in the free software market than in the centralized market.
No welfare loss caused by the free market.
Creators' sources of earnings in centralized distribution:
  1. 1.
    70% - 80% of games sold.
  2. 2.
    70-80% of micro-transactions sold.
Creators' sources of earnings in decentralized distribution:
  1. 1.
    100% of games sold.
  2. 2.
    Earning with each transfer of a released game.
  3. 3.
    Earning by providing liquidity for trading your own game.
  4. 4.
    100% of micro-transactions sold.
  5. 5.
    Earning by speculating with your own game as the best informed side of the market
  6. 6.
    The average number of games bought per user increases because people can earning by speculating on price of your games and end up collecting countless numbers of your games.
In contrast, the main benefit of a free software market for gamers is to put the software they buy into their hands. Gamers want to be able to send a digital version of a game to a friend, but currently they cannot. We want to change it.


The HashUp cartridge is a digital license carrier for games using blockchain technology below. It's transferring the physical properties of the physical distribution to the digital world. HashUp is putting cartridges into the blockchain.
The creator is free to create rules for trading his game cartridge. He can earn commissions on each exchange.

#floppy disk

The HashUp floppy disc is a digital license carrier for software.
Blockchain cartridge for games and blockchain floppy disk for games.


GameCap is a site that lists #cartridges. It stands for "game capitalization". Coinmarketcap for free market games. Listed by 24h volume and circulating supply capitalization.


GameContract is a place where Creators create cartridges on the blockchain with their games.


Gamexplorer is like etherscan for gamers. This is the place to check out any software exchange, any game library from a gamer. Collect software like never before. Brag about owning games. Because you can finally buy 100 units of a game in one account.

Gamexchange.finance and Softexchange.finance

Gamexchange is the world's first decentralized games exchange where the price of software is determined by the free market.


A free market games kickstarter. Gamepaper is like a whitepaper for cryptocurrencies, but for games.
