It brings us great joy to announce our first major advisor to join the Joystick.club Team. Corbin Fraser will be joining our team as a strategic crypto advisor, supporting our project through a variety of ways including Product Growth, Token Economics, Strategic Direction, and guiding our team towards success.

Corbin Fraser is a well known crypto advocate in the world of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, and web3. He was one of the early hires at Bitcoin.com, coming from a web agency background. Corbin is currently the Head of Financial Services Products at Bitcoin.com. He's been responsible for the success of Bitcoin.com's product division which includes the Bitcoin.com Wallet, Bitcoin.com Maps and partner integrations, Bitcoin Cash Register, Developer Services, and their entire feature set including Buy, Sell, Swap and the education material you see on Bitcoin.com.

Poolside Puffers

He was the main contributor at BitcoinCash.org for many years, and has a proven track record of growing products to millions of users globally. Some of you may know him as the creator of Poolside Puffers, one of the earliest NFT projects on SmartBCH. Others as the host of the Bitcoin.com weekly news series on Youtube. An early advocate of crypto as p2p cash, Corbin continues to push the industry along with his team at Bitcoin.com towards maximizing utility for the masses and growing economic freedom worldwide.

Corbin Fraser, strategic crypto advisor for Joystick.club

Corbin Fraser has been supporting Joystick.club behind the scenes since the very early days. When Joystick.club began as a small hackathon project in September 2020, we were building a block breaker game on layer 1 Bitcoin Cash that users had to pay BCH in order to play. We saw that Bitcoin.com had recently launched an API called Bitcoin.com Link, to support project creators in being able to build complementary dapps which could end up being included inside of the Bitcoin.com app.

We had seen first hand the adoption of 3rd party apps and games in applications such as WeChat, LINE, Facebook, and more. Our goal in those early days was to just get a single game out that could demo arcade style gaming on Bitcoin Cash and do everything we could to get included into the Bitcoin.com app. We spoke with Corbin about this idea during the hackathon and right off the bat he was excited and extremely supportive. He too was a huge fan of arcade style gaming and loved the idea of micro-transactions. Corbin's support, along with his wallet team's, allowed us to get the first version of Joystick.club built and demo'd during the hackathon which won us a runner up prize. Unfortunately the project wasn't exactly ready for inclusion into the Bitcoin.com Wallet, but we continued to work evenings and weekends to get it there.

During those early days, it often seemed that everyone in the Bitcoin Cash space was more excited about protocol enhancements, and privacy centric projects and less about our consumer facing idea around an arcade built on top of Bitcoin Cash. We spoke to several "BCH influencers" in the space and were often left feeling rejected and ignored, or told that the idea was flat out dumb. Setbacks became part of our story. We were confident that we were onto something and during our chats with Corbin he continued to stress to ignore the nerd stuff, ignore the drama, ignore other influencers ideas of what they think YOU should build, and just build something you and your friends would want to use.

Corbin was also the person who recommended we try to build token reward mechanisms into the game. P2E (play to earn) was just beginning to take off on Ethereum, and he recommended we explore that idea. Thus began our rewrite to integrate SLP (Simple Ledger Protocol), the token system on BCH L1. We launched the JOY token alongside our Flipstarter (which eventually failed). More setbacks. Still, we continued to build and release enhancements. By this point we had 3 games out on joystick.club, and were rewarding 100 JOY per play (worth approximately $3.10 at todays rate) for a small $0.25 payment in BCH. We finally had a stable release, and shared it with Corbin to review. His ios and android teams helped do some QA and just like that. We were included inside the Bitcoin.com app in the discovery section.

"I'm thrilled to be a part of the team. Joystick.club is one of my personal favourite projects on smartBCH. I'm glad I was able to help encourage and guide the team in their early days. Arcade gaming with a flywheel economy of rewards and prizes is just the kind of thing ordinary folks new to crypto can instantly get. Moreover, it's fun! The crypto industry needs more examples like this to grow."

– Corbin Fraser, Head of Financial Services at Bitcoin.com

We're extremely happy to formalize this relationship and announce Corbin Fraser as our first crypto advisor to Joystick.club. From his early guidance and support, to his more recent encouragement to migrate into smartBCH and bridge tokens over to a SEP20 token - which lead to a successful IBO token sale on Benswap.cash, we've been fortunate to have someone we could confide in and validate whether what we are doing seems logical from someone who's grown global crypto products before.

Follow Corbin on Twitter: @Maplesyrupsuckr.

Note: This is an unpaid advisory role, though in the future we hope to introduce staked advisory governance tokens as we move further into a DAO to incentivize experts like Corbin to continue to contribute to this project.
