Instant Monetization Proof Of Concept Educational Video Game Powered by Blockchain
Here's my latest creation: an educational video game teaching people social media marketing strategies in order to grow their business, fanbase or audience (Social Media changed my life, read below).
This creation combines coding, gaming, learning, Social Media, original music and blockchain technology.

This is my 1st video game, I coded it in p5.js. I learned this language by watching Daniel Shiffman on YouTube. It only took me 2 weeks to do it since I already knew C++ and EasyLanguage (the latest being exclusively used in finance).
It is the first video game teaching Social Media strategies! In addition, it is the first game where the music composer for the game (aka me !) is paid every time the game is played!
How is it possible ? My music is streaming from the world's 1st smart blockchain for music, Musicoin which pays more than major streaming platforms at this point (highest streaming rate ever + tips). Read here how Musicoin functions.
In the future, the music will change every time you reach a new checkpoint.
Why did I create this game?
1- I am now mostly interested in combining my knowledge in different fields to create unique experiences and proof of concepts.
2- This creation is a way for me to inspire artists and business owners to become more creative at the way they interact with their audience,fans and customers.
3 - Social Media changed my life. I was stuck in the french countryside in my early 20s and was dreaming about being in the US to work with the coolest music artists ! It happened!
How ? I worked really hard for it ( I practiced the piano 10 hours a day for years, transcribed hundreds of jazz/pop/latin albums...) and used MySpace to communicate about my skills. I got in touch with some of the most famous music executives and artists in the US! I got my 1st music placements with stars, and was invited to Los Angeles by one of the top songwriters of all time, Walter Afanasieff...The music I created during my first two weeks in Los Angeles received 3 Grammy nominations and sold over 10 million copies worldwide! That is life changing!
4 - The game can be adapted to different learning and interacting environments.
5 - This was a good exercise to practice what I learned with Daniel Shiffman.
6 - It's a fun way for people to discover my unreleased original music!
7 - It is passive income for me (yes, the value of a stream is low, but what if the $MUSIC coins value take off? many coins moved more than 10000% in 2017...It could become a simple video game that generated $100k or way more)
8 - it's a great way to use the free traffic I generate from my 500k+ followers on Twitter!
9 - it's an interesting proof of concept that is landing me some great speaking opportunities about creativity around the world! Not bad for one of my 1st coding projects!
