Solution innovativeness

As part of a small study of the market (review of applications in the Play Market service), no analogues of the video game were found. There are applications with virtual accounts and they are not focused on the game form of learning. The closest analogues can be called Football Manager and Game Dev Tycoon.

Solution transferability

This product is very niche. Going beyond financial literacy the product loses its relevance. However, under the genre of Simulator you can implement almost anything

Solution sustainability

The video game will be distributed through digital distribution services.(Steam, GOG)

In the future, various financial instruments (trading on the stock exchange, Forex, purchase and sale of securities), as well as derivative financial instruments (futures, options), improving in-game intelligence should be added to the game
