What is OGLife?
Original Gamer Life is Thriving-as-a-Service
Original Gamer Life (OGLife) provides a Thriving-as-a-Service platform for older (40+) and veteran gamers to enhance their physical, emotional, and financial integrity through games and entertainment. We promote behaviors that boost mental and physical health, offer monetary rewards, and power connections with community and family. We bring the content, services, events, and programs to OGs on the OGLife platform delivered by our partners who leverage the digital economy powered by StrongNode and blockchain technology.
Video Games Bring Original Gamers Together
Video games have the power to unite and provide enriching experiences individually and collectively as a community. We are committed to changing the lives of humans 40+ and who are military veterans, who we call Original Gamers – giving them a platform to thrive through innovation and technology; We partner with thought leaders, content creators, service providers, and communities that align with our intention to deliver fun, healthy, and monetarily rewarding gameplay and entertainment environments. We are focused on enabling OGs to thrive.
The Covid-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented growth and opportunity in the esports industry that capitalized on a USD $24.9 billion market size as of 2019. Gaming has become the fastest-growing form of entertainment globally, with revenues increasing at 9%+ per year. By 2022 the global video game market is expected to surpass $190 billion in revenues. The recent lifestyle changes of people staying at home during “stay at home” lockdowns and quarantine globally have developed aggressive indicators to point to an increase in viewership and consumption of content related to both esports and online video gaming.
Who Are the Original Gamers - OGs?
With a burgeoning elderly segment of the population, the world is aging at a steady rate. Many countries in the world – Japan, Finland, Italy, Greece, France, Germany – are experiencing growth in the number of older people in their society. In 2019, 1 in 11 people are over 65 years old representing 9% of the population. By 2050, this is said to increase to 1 in 6 or 16% (UN World Population Prospects, 2019 Revision). All efforts to prepare for this inevitability will not be in vain in the future.
We face a young esports industry that is exploding in growth for the last 10 years albeit being affected by the current pandemic.
No industries are safe from growth pains. As esports quickly evolves, the year 2020 accelerated its trajectory into the realm of mainly virtual events. The stay-at-home orders due to Covid-19 boosted online engagement through gaming and streaming platforms.

Currently, there is a lack of infrastructure in the gaming and esports industry that is conducive to creating an ecosystem that can fully support and develop older gamers (age 40 and above) in their journey to recreational and professional gaming.
The goal of OGLife is to collaborate with players, esports teams, leagues, organizations, corporations, communities, and institutions as well as groups and communities that are working towards the same goal: Making the dream of a vibrant gaming ecosystem a reality for this niche/age group.
We embark on an active search of identifying these potential partners who may already be serving this age group within the industry or catering to this niche market in a different industry. The strategy for OGLife to be at the forefront of this movement with Abbe Borg aka DieHardBirdie, oldest esports world champ at age 78, leading the way as the League Champion and Team Captain of “Golden Snipers,” the first team to be listed with Original Gamer Life.
