cryptoBLAST is a team-based multiplayer 1st & 3rd person arena shooter that uses BLAST. The artwork, design, and economy of cryptoBLAST will be heavily “crypto”-themed throughout the game.
Through a unique ranking system that saves player statistics and configurations with small dust-sized BLAST transactions, cryptoBLAST players can connect to each other for highly competitive matches featuring BLAST wagering that revolve around team-based eSports-style competitions. You can represent your favorite “crypto” or upload your own logos and team names.
Custom upgrades for player weapons, armor, stats and visual appearance can be purchased with BLAST. The cryptoBLAST marketplace will eventually allow the community to Buy / Sell / Trade their own creations to be used by others in the cryptoBLAST world. All of this will be saved to the Blockchain utilizing SegWit & Layer-2 tech to maximize the number of updates that can be included in each block.
More game & tech info will be unveiled as development progresses.
PROOF OF WORK (PoW)
We are game industry veterans who have been fortunate enough to contribute to many exciting AAA quality titles in the game industry. We are also fascinated by the blockchain industry and would like to combine both.
The goal is to feel like Overwatch meets Mario Kart while the artwork will cater to open-source projects within the crypto space. Art will be heavily crypto-themed throughout the content of the game.
At the moment there are three. Offense, Tanks (Defense) & Support. Within each class there will also be multiple subclasses. More info on this will come at a later time.
Matches will allow for BLAST wagering. (A non-wagering mode will also be available)
There will be no monetary transmission while the game is in beta. More info on this will come at a later time.
We are aiming for “sometime” in 2019. Closed beta may happen sooner.
Updates will happen at least once per month for the cryptoBLAST game. Updates may be at more random intervals for the BLAST coin wallet.
TBD, but most likely.
This is not an ICO. It is a self-funded project. BLAST is a pure PoW coin using the SHA-256 algo.
We have a great deal of respect for the economics of bitcoin.
SHA-256 allows BLAST to enjoy the security of BTC without competing for hashrate if pools choose to use the merged-mining feature.
Yes and no. There are a lot of legal issues surrounding ICO’s we’d prefer to avoid. If you would like to support what we are doing, please lend us some hashrate support.
Utilizing SegWit allows us to fit more save-state data in each block, reducing delays in game updates that would be caused by transaction backlogs. The discount applied to SegWit transactions also allows us to minimize costs required to write game data to the blockchain. Look for a more detailed visual white paper in the near future regarding this functionality.
BLAST will be the only cryptocurrency that works exclusively with cryptoBLAST.
Because we would like to work within the limitations of SegWit and learning what Layer-2 technologies can bring to the table. In some ways a PoW chain can technically be more decentralized because smart contracts have an owner.
