Warning: This contest is meant to create a brand new visual identity. Through the process of rebranding, we need to have a new logo that defines our activity.
We had a visual identity linked with our previous brand name => Gimli.
We want to write a new history under Gimbl.gg
After almost two years of existence, we have to reach a new stage in our business’ maturity and growth as we are about to release our product. We see this release as an opportunity to more closely examine your mission, purpose and the betterment of your company.
We have combined 3 concepts.
GIM: is the token that powers our platform. It represents our commitment to decentralized governance.
.gg: means “Good Game” and is commonly used at the end of a gaming match. It represents our commitment to eSports.
Gamble: take opportunistic action in the hope of a desired result. We see our platform has a way to enhance the eSports experience. We call a winning bet a Good.Gimbl
Gimbl.gg is a community.
It uses the power of the blockchain to bring a new experience to esports fans. Instead of passively watching a video stream, Gimblers can interact with the game and the community. We empower the community by providing the tools required to get to the next level.

Who we serve
They broadcast a or their game on a video platform (Twitch or YouTube Games mainly) . They can reach a vast number of viewers right from their bedroom. Streamers will often record and publish certain parts of the match or clips.
The typical eSports viewer is a young adult male who is very passionate about the game they are viewing (and video games in general). However, it is important to remember that, as with any large population, there are many viewers who fall outside the typical demographic. There are also a large number of female and older eSports viewers. The common thread across these viewers is that they are very passionate about the game they are viewing and likely are hardcore players as well.
The tools we provide
Gimbl operate as a peer-to-peer betting platform, meaning that we will not provide fixed-odds and act as a book-maker. Bets are created and monitored by streamers.
Parimutuel betting is a wagering system in which all bets of a particular type are placed together in a pool and payoff odds are calculated by sharing the pool among all winning bets. The final payout is not determined until the pool is closed. Because we do not fix odds, users and betting against each other, not against the house.
Using GIM token, user will be able to make donations to support streamers (without minimum amount).
The viewers will have the ability to challenge the streamer. During the streaming session, viewers will vote for a challenge the streamer needs to accomplish from a list displayed through the application. Streamers and Viewers will have true interactions during the stream and will be rewarded if the streamer has won the challenge.
Once the stream will finish, viewers will be able to vote for the status the streamer deserves. According to his gameplay, skills, actions accomplished, the viewership can decide to reward him with a “Badge” or a “Status”. See badges specifications here.
