Blockchain Cuties, a decentralized crypto collecting game that runs on the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain, has announced that it is now available on EOS. The developer company says the new move makes Blockchain Cuties “the first game that officially supports two blockchains at the same time”. This is supposed to speed up transactions and players can now breed both ETH and EOS based sweetness.
Support for non-fungible tokens
The game announced that players can now log into the game with their EOS wallet and breed their first EOS cuties. According to Blockchain Cuties, importing the private key takes less than a minute. After entering the system, the private key is saved by saving it locally. To start the game, players should allocate CPU / bandwidth and RAM – the resources users have on the EOS blockchain. The company says the amount of tokens staked cannot be “staked” at any time.
One of the main reasons Blockchain Cuties decided to implement the EOS blockchain into the game was the support for non-fungible tokens that the platform offers. “There aren’t many blockchain platforms that support such digital assets,” the company says. All crypto collectibles or cuties are non-fungible tokens that are unique and have cryptocurrency value. These tokens are represented as pets and cute animals that players can buy and sell among themselves or trade on the in-game marketplace. Players can also breed their own fantasy creature by adding mutations that make their cutie more expensive.
“Record breaking” scalability feat
Another reason for working with the EOS blockchain is the transaction speed, the mass adoption and the record-breaking scalability with which the scalability problems could be solved.
EOS is one of the first cryptocurrencies to implement the consensus mechanism for delegated proof-of-stake. The company hopes this platform will enable the platform to improve scalability to “millions of transactions per second”.
Duties as a trend
Blockchain Cuties was officially released in April 2018. It became part of the decentralized crypto game trend that began with the launch of CryptoPunks, the first blockchain game ever developed in June 2017. The developers offered players to collect, bid and sell punks digitally. A few months later, in November 2017, CryptoKitties took over creating its own market and valuable assets – crypto cats. The developers invented a pioneering approach that delays the networking of Ethereum networks. As a result, CryptoKitties broke the record of one million unique virtual kittens that gamers have bred. The most expensive asset was sold for more than 600 ETH, or about $ 170,000.
Blockchain Cuties became part of the boom in the next collectible games. They expanded the breeding function from kittens to other animals including lizards, puppies, bears and fantastic creatures. Each non-fungible token has a unique genome that players decipher, and each unique trait increases the price of the token.
