Web2 to Web3, Fast
In our opinion, Web3 is the future, but for game and app companies unfamiliar with the technology, transitioning their platforms from our current web to Web3 can be a nightmare. That’s where we come in. Elements provides a one-stop solution for app/game developers to develop and launch their properties in the Web3 market. Our platform is simple enough for novices with hardly any knowledge of Web3 to use, yet powerful enough to empower experienced teams to create their own complex marketplaces and ecosystems. We put powerful Web2 tools in developers’ hands to easily support single sign-on, account management, digital goods, and gamification, while giving developers a gateway to embrace Web3 with tools for smart contracts, multi-blockchain support, decentralized storage, NFTs, and more.
The problem & our Solution
Creating a cloud infrastructure for an app with support for Web3 features is a daunting and expensive task for any developer. It can take months and costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to engineer. We believe our software simplifies the process of making a Web3 ecosystem so developers can focus on their apps and games.
Instead of paying a team of server engineers for months to build an app’s backend, developers can sign up for the Elements SaaS solution and scale their platform in minutes. Our clients can enjoy up to a 50% reduction in development time from prototype to launch. Elements will be available in three tiers, and we will also offer white glove support for enterprise customers.
*The product features Generative Minting, Distributed Databases, and Payouts are currently in development with expected product integration to be available in the next few months
*The 3D Character Generation Tools feature is also currently in development with expected availability in 8-12 months
*Elements is currently available privately under enterprise license to consulting clients
THE market & our traction
The overall gaming market is immensely lucrative, generating over $200 billion in 2021, and it’s expected to hit $222 billion by the end of this year (source). Moreover, the advent of blockchain is creating fevered excitement in the blockchain game market, as more than $2.5 billion was invested into blockchain games in Q1 of this year (source). Our easy-to-use technology allows us to exist at the forefront of this space, which is why we have already worked with massive game developers who publish games with over a billion downloads and VOD streamers working with some of the biggest Hollywood studios. We are also excited to announce that Elements will be powering an upcoming virtual sports collectible platform called Wincast (case study), which just launched its Beta.
Becoming a shareholder in Elements is not only a chance to join a company with a vision for Web3 but also an opportunity to meet the demands of game and app developers wishing to enable connected functionality in their products. The world is already adapting to Web3, and we believe our software is already one of the best tools to bring companies into the space and scale rapidly. Join our journey to shepherd the next billion people into Web3 by investing in Elements.
Elements is an all-in-one server engine designed to be simple enough for a novice to create a truly connected Web3 application, and robust enough for experienced teams to craft the future of their industry with complex functionality support. The company has an infrastructure that allows game and app developers, from large companies to indie labels, to transition seamlessly to Web3. We believe Elements is one of the most efficient ways for traditional companies to enter the world of blockchain. Elements is currently available privately under enterprise license to consulting clients.

Since the 1980s, the interactive entertainment industry, especially the video gaming segment, has grown exponentially. Blockchain gaming, the next wave of this growth, is already expanding at a tremendous rate, and Elements is already helping companies transition to the space!
The overall gaming market is immensely lucrative, generating over $200 billion in 2021, and is expected to hit $222 billion by the end of this year (source).
Moreover, the advent of blockchain technology has created fevered excitement in the blockchain game market, with more than $2.5 billion invested into blockchain games in both Q1 and Q2 of this year, and another $1.3 billion in Q3 despite the macro economic environment. That’s more than $6.3 billion in the first three quarters this year!
Elements' easy-to-use platform allows it to exist at the forefront of this space, which is why we have already worked with large gaming studios who publish games with over a billion downloads, and streaming platforms working with some of the biggest Hollywood studios. We are also excited that Elements is powering Wincast, an upcoming virtual sports collectible platform, which recently launched its beta (case study).
Gaming, especially blockchain gaming, is a growth market that is poised to take off as it begins to reach maturity. The tools needed are just coming online, into a market that so badly needs solutions to the talent shortage we previously told you about.
Invest in Elements today, and take a ride with us on a journey to simplify the journey to Web3!
Since the advent of massive multiplayer online role playing games (MMORPGs) spawned by titles such as Meridian59, Ultima Online, RuneScape and World of Warcraft, traditional gaming outfits have made significant revenue through monthly subscriptions and through in-game markets that allow you to purchase digital skins, weapons, maps, and other items for their games. When support for an online game ends, however, all those in-game items earned, or bought, are gone! Hours of grinding, hard earned money, your helmet/sword/camouflage skin disappear. Poof. Sad face.
More and more, gamers are looking to hang onto these items for both sentimental and monetary reasons. Their utility can live beyond the original game they came from whether that’s in another game, a private server, a re-launch of the title, or even turned into a physical item!
Not to mention that by the end of Q2 2022, gaming dapps were driving 52% of all blockchain activity tracked by DappRadar (source). Almost all of these games have NFTs or another type of token integrated for functionality, wearable items, or with some you need a particular NFT to access the game in place of a monthly subscription.
In our opinion, Web3 is the future, but for game and app companies unfamiliar with the technology, transitioning their platforms from traditional frameworks and platforms to Web3 isn't simple. That’s where Elements comes in. Elements provides a one-stop solution for app/game developers to develop and launch their properties in the Web3 market. This new platform is simple enough for novices with just a bit of Web3 knowledge to use, yet powerful enough to empower experienced teams to create their own complex marketplaces and ecosystems. Elements puts powerful tools in developers’ hands to easily support single sign-on, account management, digital goods, and gamification, while giving them a gateway to embrace Web3 with solutions for smart contracts, multi-blockchain support, decentralized storage, NFTs, and more.
Invest in Elements today and take your own slice of the pie.
Today we wanted to take a moment to talk about the opportunity; the market that Elements is targeting, and why we have invested our own time, money and effort into building the company. And therefore, the reasons you have to invest in Elements and the team.
Elements provides an on-ramp that makes it simple for those who want to take advantage of Web3 technology, but can’t afford the time or hundreds of thousands of dollars it takes to get started from scratch. Invest in Elements today, and help us get this platform into the hands of hundreds of development shops, intellectual property owners, and other interactive entertainment developers so that they can take advantage of this new wave of powerful tools.
It’s easy for people to dismiss the rise of a new technology. In its early days it often matures in fits and spurts, capturing the attention only of a few at first. But as it matures, and more people come to understand its capabilities, suddenly more people begin to learn about it, talk about it with their colleagues, and even try it out for themselves. Since the dawn of the Industrial Age, this has been the way new technology catches on. First with a flicker, and then a lightning bolt!
Web3 technology, and its other various monikers, is no different. Bitcoin’s use of an immutable ledger changed the game for storing verifiable data in a public blockchain. Ethereum extended this by turning a blockchain into a decentralized computing platform. Polygon further added to the flame by building a faster processing engine still secured by Ethereum. Many other players have entered the space as well, trying their best to further enhance, speed up, and ease the transition for people over to Web3.
At Elements, we don’t play the trading game. Instead we believe the verifiable ownership, decentralized protocols, smart contracts and more can really change the way we look at the digital assets we own and love.
Traditional gaming outfits have made money, hand over fist, by allowing users to purchase digital skins, weapons, maps, and other items for their games. 100% of the proceeds go to the developer and publisher, but how the money is divvied up beyond that is more or less a black box. And, worse yet, when support for the game ends, especially those with online components, all those in-game items you earned, or bought, and treasure so much go POOF. Your hours of grinding? Your hard earned dollars? That helmet or sword that looked just perfect with your character? Gone. And there’s nothing you can do to stop it.
More innovative, forward-thinking, and consumer-centric game developers have recognized that non-fungible tokens (NFTs) can change all of that. Not only can you still sport that badass eye patch, but you can sell it to someone else when you find even better eyewear, and keep the majority of the proceeds! Many developers and designers are even making it possible to use your skins and weapons in other games, making possible an era that resembles the Sword Art Online anime series where characters bring their skills and other attributes with them across games built on the same engine.
And that’s one reason why the Web3 industry is expected to be worth over $87 billion by 2030. This is not based on people speculatively buying and selling coins, but based on actual transaction volume through payments, healthcare, storage, and other things that blockchains are useful for.
Not everything needs to be decentralized or to run on a blockchain, but many industries can and do benefit from re-thinking their business models, their security models, and allowing their customers to actually own more of their data. What spreadsheets did for accounting, and what relational databases did for data storage, blockchain technology can do for almost every major industry and supply chain over the coming years.
Elements is planting its flag in the interactive entertainment platforms space, allowing IE developers to easily get started with their existing, familiar tools but making their game more consumer-centric. Each game release is a battle for hearts and minds, and having the Elements platform in your quiver is putting a major weapon in your arsenal.
One of the issues that has plagued traditional physical art, music, and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) since inception is the issue of creator royalties for when multiple creators are involved. Keeping track of music royalties including composers, producers, songwriters, performers, etc. is left to large organizations that they, themselves, also need to be paid in order to provide this service. If multiple artists were to work together on a mural, or other physical piece of art, ensuring they are compensated for sales on the secondary market is often a murky matter, if it happens at all. Multimedia NFTs can easily involve multiple artists’ contributions from music, to 3D animation, to character design, and more.
One thing that smart contracts can do incredibly well is automate royalty collection and distribution, removing middlemen, increasing royalties back to the original creators, and keeping more money in the hands of those contributing to such amazing works of art being out in the world. The Elements team is making this capability easy to access and set for NFT collections and contracts so that creators and teams can take full advantage!
As you can see here, Elements makes it possible to set royalties as shares or percentages, and then to allocate shares or percentages of royalties to individual wallets. So, for example, if four people worked on a project together and were all due equal royalties, you could set a total of 100 shares, and assign 25 to each creator’s wallet. Then, after the royalty has been set for the collection, the royalties collected can be automatically distributed!
These are the types of features already available to NFT smart contract creators, but that can be very difficult to set up when writing code. By abstracting the process, Elements makes it easy to use, along with other parts of the NFT collection and minting process!
You have an opportunity to participate directly in Elements’ success by participating in the StartEngine offering. There are bonuses available at various levels now, so don’t delay your investment!
To make Elements possible, we knew we needed to make sure our clients could focus on execution, not figuring out how to plug Elements into their existing infrastructure or workflow.
Terraform, by HashiCorp, is an Infrastructure as Code (IaC) platform that allows for easy management of complex cloud resources, and is an essential part of efficiently delivering Elements to our partners. We chose Terraform because:
Terraform allows Elements and customers to tap into more than 1,000 infrastructure providers around the world, giving you choice and ensuring you have access to Elements paired with best-in-class infrastructure to back up your dreams!
You can also tap in to these transformational technologies and relationships Elements is making by investing today!
One of the benefits of having a team who has been building solutions for companies on a project basis is that the team has gained experience working with a variety of external platforms - from social media APIs, to different IaaS and PasS solutions, to deploying on every major app marketplace.
What that leads to is designing a product that is incredibly platform agnostic, and works well with developers' existing environments. Instead of forcing you to choose between two suitable options, Elements allows you to keep working with your existing IaaS provider, your carefully crafted Kubernetes Cluster, your perfectly taxonomied bucket storage, and more! Come as you are, as a young Kurt Cobain once sang.
While too much choice in a market can be debilitating, Elements doesn’t feel like its job is to pick winners. The goal of the Elements platform is to accelerate development lifecycles, cut costs, and enhance projects! The best way we can do that is to reduce the amount of time devs spend on tedious, repetitive tasks, making connections to devs' preferred tools easy, and make sure everything is seamless.
With a suite of existing clients that have benefitted from what Elements offers, and some household names waiting in the wings, we feel this is a winning formula for everyone involved!

How much can I invest?
With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.
When will I receive my shares?
At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.
Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.
What will the return on my investment be?
StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.
Can I cancel my investment?
For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.
For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.
Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.
Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.
What is the difference between Regulation Crowdfunding and Regulation A+?
Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
