My Killer Geodapp concept


Hello Team, and XYO community!

I’m really excited about the XYO network, I’m a graphic designer, no coder, well I can do HTML, CSS, but there it stops… So maybe I’m talking out of my league here, I have been thinking about what could be a killer Dapp for the XYO Network, to draw attention and start adoption. And I would like to share my idea with you guys.

As a designer I already see this Dapp in front of me, in terms of style and UI design. I wanted to design the logo and user interface, but maybe run my idea through you guys first. Let me know what you think!

I would like to call my Dapp: HUNT FOR TREASURE

Before I explain the game, I would like to set the style of the game, for your imagination.

Although there isn’t really need for character design or animation, the style of the app (logo, colours and graphics used) should be funny, caricature, toony. With bright colours, like Fortnite and Family Guy.

Furthermore, the Dapp’s UI should be extremely simple and clear, and easy to use. With bright colours, big indicators and buttons and not too much information on one screen.

The Game
HUNT FOR TREASURE is an Dapp you install on your iPhone or Android (preferable game release on both platforms at the same time). The Dapp contains a wallet which you can top-up with your credit card (or maybe even fund from another crypto account). I was thinking this should be an Ether wallet, but maybe a bitcoin wallet using USDT is better for main adoption. – This way the transition from USD to crypto (USDT) isn’t that big of a difference for the majority of the people who are new to crypto. – I think it’s very important to make the transition as small/easy as possible for people new to crypto, also on a psychological level.

Okay, so know we have topped-up our Dapp wallet , we can activate or ‘turn-on’ the Dapp, and we’re ready for the Hunt!

To take part in the Hunt will cost you 1 USDT, this will be automatically transferred from your Dapp wallet when the Hunt begins, or when you enter an active hunt area.

Once there are 100 ‘hunters’ or more in a an area, let’s say 10 KM radius (6.4 Miles). the ‘HUNT FOR TREASURE’ automatically commences.

The Treasure is placed, randomly somewhere within that specific area (or maybe in a bit larger area). The Dapp alerts the user with a blinking screen saying: THE HUNT IS ON!!! The Dapp UI shows the hunter which direction to go (simple compass style indicator), and tells the relative distance to the treasure.

The treasure is the total amount of crypto (USDT) the players have paid to take part in the hunt, so if there are 100 ‘hunters’, there is a treasure of 100 USDT.

If more hunters join, by entering the ‘Hunt for Treasure’ area with an ‘activated’ Dapp, the HUNTER COUNT will go up, and the TREASURE gets bigger! Of course this is clearly visualised and updated live on the Dapp’s UI.

It would be nice to integrate the phone’s camera and add some funny AR functions. And of course social media sharing features. – Maybe even an automated post by the ‘Hunt for Treasure’ facebook page, when new hunts are ‘triggered’, to maximize and attract more hunters.

Promotion campaign
When launching the app, it would be wise to run a promotion campaign on social media. And have some funds ready to make the first (promotional) ‘Treasure drops’ in major cities, with big prizes, to draw attention and promote Dapp download.

To sum up the Hunt For Treasure Dapp UI functions and indicators:
Home screen: Account name, Wallet, activate (I’m ready for the hunt) button.
Active Hunt screen: Treasure count, Hunter count, compass style indicator with relative distance.
AR screen: AR Hunt for Treasure Box, Photo and Video Social sharing button.

// Needles to say XYO tokens is what powers the app and network.

Please let me know what you think!

I think you should link up with, it is programmed using blockchain. They are in open Beta now I can’t wait for mine to arrive.

Sounds interesting, somthing gamers might use. I,m not one so wouldn’t be playing. But good luck. I believe “FOAM” have a similar game. May be worth your looking at that site


I like the idea. Sounds a little like Geocaching but with a much larger audience


Yes exactly! A Lottery vs real life Battle Royal :crown: meets Pokémon… :wink: I think it’s great XYO is launching their iOS app at this moment, but that’s only for people who own a mining kit.

I think XYO would do much better if they would launch an app like my ‘Hunt for Treasure’ concept, for a much wider audience, therefor spreading the XYO app and it’s XYO network all over the globe :earth_asia: – when turned on, the app should also work as a sentinel in the background, creating and extending the XYO network.


You just gave away your idea.


Thanks, I’ll take it from here :hugs::grinning:

Please do! The earlier mass adoption of XYO tokens starts the better! :boom::boom::boom: Just give me a heads up when you test drive and launch your dApp, would be happy to help in any way. I am a graphic designer, if you need any help on design let me know. If the “Hunt for Treasure” dApp is a succes, a thank you in XYO tokens is of course very much appreciated… :money_mouth_face::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::wink:

Great concept. Pitch it to Reality Clash ( they’re finalizing an AR shooter game and incoporating a treasure hunt may be a natural fit.


Just to be perfectly clear on, and additional to, my concept for ‘Hunt for Treasure’. The contract should be written in such a manner that it will execute automatically when a specific number of people with activated dApp are in a specific range of each other. So no pre-selected dropping area’s, everything is geo-automated.

For example when 100 people with an activated dApp are within, let’s say 4 miles of each other, the Hunt automatically commences.

Or when 500 people with an activated dApp are within 8 miles of each other, the Hunt automatically commences.

Or both, of course this should carefully thought about and worked out by the one who writes the contract.

And for the record, I don’t mind if someone else uses my concept and “steals the glory”, I just hope it will be with or powered by XYO tokens, since this is a geo dApp, and spread main adoption. Because I am a proud Founder Registry Hodler :boom::wink::boom:

Ps it would be nice though if you’re the one who’s gonna “steal the glory” could write my eth address in the contract for 1 XYO for every transaction. :sunglasses::pray:


I said “as a programmer”

… but the dApp you are ‘programming’ will need a beautiful and easy to use UI design that appeals to the masses, in order to make it an success, right?

Just as it needs a global incentivized promotional campaign, and launched on both platforms at ones, in order to really get mass adoption going.

It’s the whole package that makes a dApp a Killer dApp. Not just one cleverly written contract. But that’s just my humble opinion.

I really do hope you will make the ‘Hunt for Treasure’ dApp a reality. Maybe it can be integrated into the Coin app… :wink: (Although I think it will be better, and will have a bigger chance on mass adoption, if it has it’s own style, identity and marketing communication through it’s own dApp, website and social platforms - like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and maybe YouTube.)

Good luck!
