Quizando is a state-of-the-art quiz delivery system that gives players the chance to win real cash for taking part in a variety of different trivia games. 

When it soft launched in 2017, it was the first of its kind in the world and it remains entirely unique to this day. Although only operating in beta test mode, Quizando has built up an active following with thousands of new players signing up to the platform every month. 

We currently offer three types of games but have several more game styles and variations ready to deploy once the platform has been upgraded and made scalable. 

The fact that our platform has been revenue positive and monetised from day one makes us a unique operator in the potentially vast but almost totally untapped quiz game market.

Quizando the Problem Solver

Quizando solves two very distinct, but closely related problems.

Firstly, the vast world of quiz-loving people has never had a one-stop platform where they can fulfill their desire to play quizzes and win money. Thanks to our state-of-the-art tech, fun games, varied formats and vast database of trivia, that problem is already solved. 

Secondly our platform solves an even more pressing problem that has been plaguing the social media world for years – I have a following but how do I make money from it? Our revolutionary Quizando Live games will take this problem and make it a thing of the past.

By hosting their own quizzes via our platform, influencers across the globesuddenly have access to real income which will reward their hard work.

The Industry Size

The potential market for Quizando runs into billions of dollars. Many billions.

On Facebook alone, there are 200 million English-speaking users who have listed Quizzes, Trivia or Game Shows as one of their interests. But our test phase has shown that Quizando crosses language barriers as we have players from all over the world, many of them non-native English speakers. 

And just to make sure language isn’t a barrier, we have French and Spanish versions of the platform in the pipeline.

With that in mind we estimate the total global potential market for Quizando is closer to 500-600 million players. But, thanks to Quizando Live, it is even bigger than that. 

According to YouTube’s figures, there are more than 465,000 people with 10,000 subscribers or more. That means the potential reach of Quizando Live is more than 46 billion people. And each one of those is a potential player. 

Quizando’s beta testing has shown that, on average, a typical player spends approx $100 a year on Quizando. That means the global market for our platform could easily reach $60 billion. 

In short, the market we are aiming for is truly vast. And our platform is not only perfectly suited to tap into it, but the only one ready to make its move.

The Competition

Competition in the quiz sector is very limited at this stage, largely because this market is mostly virgin territory.

Currently HQ Trivia is the only serious player in the sector and they regularly attract up to 2 million players for their games. However, they have limitations in that they only have pre-scheduled quizzes and don’t offer ‘anytime’ playability. They are, in fact, more of a digital game show than a quiz platform. Equally, their game is limited to their App and, while mobile is a huge slice of the gaming market, it is not the full slice. In fact, our own experience shows there is roughly a 50/50 split between desktop and other devices. HQ Trivia games are currently free to play and the App, as a result, has not monetized in the strictest sense of the word. Quizando, on the other hand, has had a steady (if obviously limited) flow of revenue from the day the platform launched in beta form.

In terms of competition for Quizando Live, there isn’t any. This is purely and simply because nobody else has thought of a system similar to ours. They haven’t connected the dots. It is, without sounding too pompous, an idea of such simplistic brilliance that the only question is how big can it grow?

Strategic Partnership

To ensure the long-term success, growth and profitability of Quizando, we have established a number of cleverly targeted strategic partnerships which will drive our platform forward.

This includes partnerships with media outlets, large corporate entities and educational institutions. All of these will help attract more and more users to the site. Affiliate partnerships have also been identified by our marketing experts ensuring that our growth will be rapid, progressive and sustainable. We have also spent months building a network of influencers who are now excitedly waiting for us to launch the platform. It is these influencers, and the hundreds of thousands of others like them, who will push and promote the Quizando platform to their combined audiences of billions.

It’s a win-win situation with extra win on top.

Why we're doing an ICO

Over the past few months we have been building, refining and adapting our state-of-the-art quiz technology. Thousands of people have been test driving our prototype platform, giving us feedback, suggestions and helping us polish our games and formats. Now we are ready to unleash our platform on the world. And that’s why we are going to ICO – to generate the funds we need to make our fantastic prototype a global reality. 

Our product already exists – people are busy playing games on Quizando while you are reading this. And hundreds more are signing up every week. But we know it needs to be even bigger, even better and even more scalable. During testing our research has been relentless. We know what quiz games people like to play, we know the type of questions they want to answer and we know the formats they want their quizzes delivered in. 

What’s more, over the course of our short operational history we have created an industry disrupting concept – Quizando Live – which will not only bring millions of new players to our existing games but which will also become a leading platform in itself. 

This side of our platform is unique, entirely original and it will change the lives of influencers in every country on the planet by giving them a whole new way to monetise their followings. 

The funds raised by the ICO will be used to redevelop and upgrade our platform and its system architecture so it can comfortably cope with the millions of players heading our way. QUIZ utility tokens will allow us to push forward with a gaming and revenue-generating platform that will prompt Silicon Valley to collectively kick itself in the butt.

Our portfolio of games include:

Last Man Standing

An exciting quiz which can see hundreds of thousands of people competing at the same time, answering exactly the same questions. Players are eliminated until we are down to the last man standing.

Head to Head

This is our most social game where players build their own quizzes and challenge friends, family, other users or even complete strangers to a quiz on a specific topic with a specific duration. And the pot goes up as more people join! The more participants that are recruited to play, the more money the participants are eligible to win.

Classic

These are our bread-and-butter, simple leaderboard-based games which run for a two-week period and are playable at any time of day or night.

Several other games types, styles and formats will be implemented in the post-ICO redevelopment of Quizando. These will bring new and exciting ways to play and win, including fabulous prizes from sponsored quizzes and real time, one-on-one challenges.

Quizando Live – Industry Disruptor

Quizando is a great product that will get even better when we upgrade our tech. It will generate massive revenue and huge turnover based on the beautiful simplicity and playability of its games.

But Quizando Live will take the platform into the stratosphere

Quizando Live is where influencers, large and small, get to host their own Last Man Standing quizzes in real time via video link. All of a sudden, people with small, medium or even large social media followings have a quick, simple and easy way to make money from their followers. 

They will no longer have to spend hours making videos and hoping the world decides to watch them. They set up a quiz, promote it to their followers and earn instant money. Quizando Live solves their biggest problem in one fell swoop: how to turn their subscribers into cold, hard cash. 

Quizando by itself has proven to be a viable and financially rewarding business model, but the addition of Quizando Live will not only take it to a whole new revenue level, it will change the lives of influencers around the globe. 

And, as we change the lives of influencers, so they will boost and enhance Quizando. As we attract more influencers, they will attract more players and so on until the entire platform reaches a critical mass of hosts, players and profitability

Why Influencers LOVE Quizando Live Logo

Let’s take Joe X as an example, with his 100,000 followers. He currently spends several hours planning, scripting, filming and editing a video that he uploads to his YouTube channel. His revenue for that video depends on views and even then, is unlikely to earn very much unless it goes viral. Let’s say Joe X’s video is viewed 100,000 times. He earns an estimated $280 in ad revenue from YouTube. 

However, if Joe hosts a quiz on Quizando, and manages to get just 1 per cent of his subscribers to take part, he is going to be earning $350 for just a few minutes work. And there is no limit to how many quizzes he can host – one a day, one an hour if he thinks it is worthwhile. 

Revenue for these live quizzes is split as follows: 35 per cent to the host, 35 per cent to the quiz winners and 30 per cent to Quizando. All of a sudden, Joe X has found a way to make money from his followers that simply wasn’t open to him before. He can interact with them and ensure they come back for more. He has a proper business on his hands and maybe even a future as a real world celebrity. 

Even more positively, 35 per cent of the generated revenue goes back to Joe X’s subscribers, keeping them keen and interested.

Boyce Avenue on Quizando

We are excited to announce that we will be joining Quizando as shareholders with a seat on the Board of Directors. We believe that the potential for Quizando is vast. People love trivia, quizzes, and challenges, and Quizando has found a way to game-ify knowledge in a way that is fun, challenging, and potentially lucrative for the participants. Morever, Quizando Live brings a uniquely personal touch to the platform that we believe will truly resonate with social media influencers and their fan bases.

Celebrities—whether from traditional platforms such as TV and film, or from social media platforms like YouTube and Instagram—are often searching for new ways to connect with their fans in a personal way. Quizando live provides social media influencers with the opportunity to not only engage with their fans in a quirky, clever, and intimate way, but it also allows them to monetize the experience, in a manner not possible on other platforms.

We believe that an ICO will create the capital and buzz that Quizando needs to scale the platform, and will properly position the company to bring into the fold many social media influencers, and to reach a wider audience. We are happy to be involved with the company and we are eager to watch it flourish in the months to come!

Community

At Quizando’s heart will be its vast community.

By their very nature, Quizando and Quizando Live are all about the people – those who host quizzes and those who play them. Few other platforms can offer the levels of interactivity that Quizando brings to the table – both in terms of competition, rivalry and direct contact. 

Our aim is to build a Quizando universe, a tightly woven but widespread grouping of people who love quizzes, game shows, trivia, winning money, competing and generally enjoying themselves. 

We will bring this community together to play on our platform by using a multi-tiered approach including:

Using select influential ambassadors from the world of social media, who will collect their segmented audiences on the Quizando platform

Riding on the popularity of our competitors and placing token airdrops in fan groups, encouraging these fans to join and play on our platform

  • Creating a rewards affiliate system for players who encourage others to join
  • Implementing a rewards scheme for people dependent on the number of games they play on the site
  • Creating some of the largest quiz games with prize pools which will very quickly reach life-changing amounts
  • Introducing games with tangible, real-world prizes which are attractive to those who aren’t financially motivated

QUIZ is a vital ingredient in the creation of this community.

How QUIZ will be used

When it comes to the creation of the QUIZ token we have one overwhelming aim – to make sure our token not only has value but that it is extensively used on the Quizando platform. For this reason, the relaunched version of Quizando will have an ecosystem designed to give QUIZ owners a wide range of benefits. Players will be able to deposit and withdraw funds into their game wallet both in traditional currencies and in QUIZ. But to encourage increased usage of the token, those people who deposit QUIZ will receive Reward Points which they can use on exclusive content. This will include special prize games, celebrity quizzes, major prize quizzes and free turns on selected in-house quizzes. Throughout the relaunched platform we will be encouraging players to buy QUIZ and use it to make their deposits in order to avail themselves of these brilliant bonus features. We want QUIZ to be used, valued and appreciated by our community from day one.

Using QUIZ on our platform gives you:

  • Access to exclusive Last Man Standing Quizzes
  • Free Plays on Classic Quizzes
  • The chance to enter special celebrity quizzes
  • Access to quizzes with physical prizes
  • The chance to win QUIZ in closed-group games

  • 24 August 2018 - Boyce Avenue Announces shareholding in Quizando


    One of the world’s most widely followed music bands has finalised a partnership in a Malta-based company as it prepares to launch a revolutionary new gaming platform.


    Boyce Avenue – the American pop and rock band formed in Sarasota, Florida, by brothers Alejandro, Daniel and Fabian Manzano – have taken an equity stake and endorsement deal with Quizando, the Malta-based quiz game portal that is currently undergoing major global development.


    The American band has a whopping 11.5 million subscribers on its YouTube channel. Their music videos have been viewed a staggering four billion times, making them the most viewed independent band on the planet. The Boyce Avenue YouTube channel alone is among the top 200 most followed channels worldwide across all topics while they are in the top 100 streamed artists on Spotify.


    “We believed in the concept of Quizando since we were first introduced to it a few months ago,” Daniel Manzano explained.


    “After testing the site for many months, the team are now in the process of further developing the platform and we decided this was the perfect time to get involved as shareholders.”


    As part of its redevelopment, Quizando will be introducing a new version of the game specifically aimed at solving a number of challenges faced by the online influencer community, namely the lack of monetisation opportunities.


    “We found this element of the new Quizando to be extremely exciting. We don’t want to give too much away at this point, but it will actually revolutionise the way the world’s online influencers monetise their followings,” Manzano added.


    Wesley Ellul, one of Quizando’s founders, said the deal making Boyce Avenue part of the ownership team was a natural partnership.


    “From the moment we started talking to Daniel and his brothers we could see how excited they were by our project and how much belief they have in what we are creating,” he said.


    “Boyce Avenue are one of the greatest examples around of how to build a solid and connected digital following. Given that this is an area the new version of Quizando will focus heavily on, their input will be invaluable.”


    The beta version of Quizando has been live for more than a year during which time a variety of game types and quiz styles have been tested, ensuring the new platform will be ready to deal with the mass market. Despite virtually no marketing of the site, thousands of players have already signed up.


    “We wanted to make sure that a market for this type of quiz game existed and test just how extensive it is before moving on to phase two. But even we were overwhelmed by the response,” Mr Ellul said.


    “Quizando now has subscribers from more than 50 countries as far apart as the US, Australia, Mexico, China and India as well a complete cross section of European players. Its global potential is huge.”


    Quizando is owned and operated by Web Matters Ltd who are currently running an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) for the platform. More information on www.quizando.io.
