These Ethereum Mining Rig Trading Cards Are The Nerdiest Thing We've Ever Seen
These Ethereum Mining Rig Trading Cards Are the Nerdiest Thing We've Ever Seen You can trade these Ethereum mining rig cards on the Ethereum blockchain. In what may be the most meta and nerdy application of the blockchain yet, artist Max Dovey has created a set of Magic: The Gathering style trading cards featuring Ethereum mining rigs that can be traded on the Ethereum blockchain. A mining rig is a computer that usually consists of at least one graphics card and stored in ways that range from DIY shelves to futuristic oil baths . One of Max Dovey's mining rig trading cards. Image: Max Dovey In a Twitter message, Doveywhose previous crypto art includes a breath-powered mining rig told me that these these trading cards are based on photos of real Ethereum mining rigs posted on forums between 2015 and 2017. Each mining rig card includes a picture of the mining rig and its stats such as its hash rate, power draw, a description of the rig, and sometimes the occasional funny name: Grampus, Rear Rig, Meow Dao, and Celcius ("a graphics card placed in an oven"). The rigs featured on the cards range from professional looking mini-farms to potential fire hazards, and the power of the card during play (yes, there is a game; more below) varies accordingly. Dovey told me his own breath-powered miner will make an appearance in a future release of cards. One has to wonder if the Tesla and body heat mining rigs will make an appearance, as well. All the rigs featured on the initial batch of cards were freely appropriated from forums without permission, but Dovey said he doesnt anticipate their owners getting upset that hes capitalizing on their builds. I appropriated the images, yes, but I would only be selling ERC-20 tokens [digital assets on the Ethereum blockchain] that represent the Continue reading >>
Mego Corp. And Tapinator Launch Darkwinds, The Revolutionary Trading Card Game On The Blockchain
Mego Corp. and Tapinator Launch Darkwinds, the Revolutionary Trading Card Game on the Blockchain NEW YORK and SAN FRANCISCO, March 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Mego Corp., a blockchain focused video games studio, and Tapinator, Inc. (OTCQB: TAPM), a leading publisher of mobile games and applications on the iOS, Google Play, Amazon and Ethereum platforms, today announced the launch of Darkwinds, a revolutionary, blockchain-based card trading game. In this new groundbreaking pirate-themed game, players fight each other to become the great grand master of the seven seas. Players will uncover the legend of a powerful and cursed treasure chest that, when opened, spews an enormous anticyclone that lasts for months. The resulting upheaval annihilates a portion of mankind and spawns all types of fantastic creatures. These creatures and other game elements are represented as unique trading cards. A revolutionary feature of Darkwinds, as compared to other on-line card games, is that it runs on top of the Ethereum network. More specifically, all Darkwinds cards are non-fungible tokens or cryptocollectibles, a new standard for virtual objects where players have perpetual rights to sell, trade and give away their items, both within and outside of the game's ecosystem. This is possible thanks to the same technology that makes cryptocurrency possible, as Darkwinds cards exist on the same Blockchain used by all Ethereum tokens. According to Cristian Gonzalez, CEO of Mego, "Cryptocollectibles and Cryptocurrencies represent a paradigm shift for games because players can now take an active part within games' virtual economies. Since the advent of free to play, there has been very little business model innovation within the video game industry and crypto gaming represents a much needed, giant Continue reading >>
Cryptomons - Digital Collectible Card Game On The Ethereum Blockchain
Cryptomons - Digital collectible card game on the ethereum blockchain I thought a lot about cryptocollectibles, and started working on my own. I am a game developer so I started thinking about possible game mechanics between collectibles and the first and most obvious choice resulted to be a collectible trading card game, so here I am. Every card you buy is unique and there can be only one owner at time. Every monster has his own DNA, that defines his aspect and stats. There will be a marketplace in which you can buy or sell your cards with ethereum. The first one to move will be chosen randomly Every monster has from 1 to 4 different attacks, depending from their DNA Every attack is particularly strong with some kind of cryptomons, example: water attack will be particularly effective against fire Every attacks consume some MP of the attacking monster A monster dies and cannot be used when it's HP goes 0 or beyond The player is defeated and the game is finished when all the monsters of that player goes 0 or beyond I plan to release an alpha/beta version as soon as possible, so if someone is interested there is a website with a subscription form: Cryptomons I'm going to give to the first thousand subiscriber free cards Continue reading >>

Whos Ready To Play The Blockchain Game?
Our top 5 video game based blockchain projects (that arentus). Here at FirstBlood, we are busy integrating some of the biggest mainstream video games into our ethereum blockchain based competition platform. A tall order since none were designed with blockchain compatibility in mind. We certainly feel we are up to the task, but with an eye to the future, we are looking forward to seeing more games integrate ethereum technology as a core feature. From peer-to-peer competition, to real-money in game economies, to blockchain based in game assets, to decentralized game logic, there is a world of possibilities for how blockchain will be integrated into the next generation of video games and the products built around them. This week, we want to highlight some of the other projects joining us on this pioneering journey to bring the blockchain to video games. So without further ado, here is our top five. This is a project we are really excited about, Ownage ( ownage.io ) has been running in stealth mode for a while now, releasing only bits and pieces of information here and there to their dedicated slack community. Their website describes them as an ethereum based platform to distribute, collect, and trade digital game content. Essentially, they want to make your in game items truly your own. No longer is does your AWP Asiimov or your Kazakus have to remain an entry in Valve or Blizzards data centre. With Ownage, game developers will free your precious in game loot from its bonds, allowing you to do with it what you want. This opens a variety of possibilities, from secondary item markets, to peer-to-peer asymmetric item wagering (a potential synergy between Ownage and FirstBlood), to items which are available across multiple games (imagine if unlocking a card in Hearthstone gav Continue reading >>
Neon District: The Latest Crypto Game
Neon District is the latest crypto game coming to us, set in a dystopian future. Neon District is a cross between a role-playing, character development, and trading card game. The Ethereum-based game creates base characters for users to collect, play, evolve, and trade. Every action the player makes in the game will affect the character, forming completely individual and unique playable characters. 15 ETH is hidden somewhere in the game, the puzzle waiting to be solved by those daring enough. Source: Twitter The characters, such as those pictured above, will be able to be purchased for the equivalent of a few dollars. The reason they start cheap is that theres nothing unique about them; the point of the game is for you, as the player, to take those characters and create something out of them. The player is what will give the character its value. As they play the game, as they develop and level up the character, they will produce something profitable that they will then be able to sell. The storyline of the game involves The Mainspring, a group that is offering implantable upgrades, or enhancements, to the citizens of the Neon District. But are these enhancements actually for the betterment of society? The Degens dont think so, and theyre willing to fight until the Mainspring is completely wiped out. Who will reign victorious? I love the concept of this game. Its giving me real Bioshock and Batman villain vibes, which is awesome. The idea of being able to develop my own character excites me and the fact that those developments can actually change the way your personal character looks is super cool. Any alterations your character takes on will be attached to the blockchain, forming a sort of digital painting of each character. Players will be able to interact with one an Continue reading >>

Collectible Card Games Have Just Become Even Geekier, By Adding Blockchain
Collectible card games have just become even geekier, by adding blockchain You may have forgotten all about this or are young enough to not even remember, but back in the early 90s, collectible cards were all the rage. Over the past few decades, many of these collectible cards have shown to be a viable investment, with some of them increasing in value exponentially since the 1990s. To be more specific, some cards that were bought in a $2.99 package about 20 years ago are worth more than $20,000 each today. This makes the need for a secure and transparent card trading platform all the more pressing and warrants applying blockchain technology to collectable card games (CCGs). This is exactly what the Nova Token Platform team did. Decentralizing CCGs is the next evolutionary step in advancing collectible card trading and gaming. The applications of blockchain technology to the multi-billion dollar industry that is esports and card trading are vast. Current collectible games merely license the cards to players. A decentralized platform ensures players always own their cards and are free to buy and sell anytime. The Nova Token Platform is a decentralized card gaming platform, where users can enjoy trading their cards and participating in games and tournaments without the risk of fraud and cheating. Users can buy and sell cards on the decentralized Card Exchange, participate in real-time games and tournaments, as well as earn rewards if they hold Nova Tokens (NVT). The Nova Token Platform shows huge potential, not only because of the highly experienced development team but also because they are being advised by some of the pioneers in the industry like Richard Garfield, creator of Magic: The Gathering, and Skaff Elias, creator of the Magic Pro Tour. The application of blockc Continue reading >>
Blockchain-based Platform Cuts Out Middleman In Collectible Card Games
Blockchain-Based Platform Cuts out Middleman in Collectible Card Games ombining Blockchain technology with card gaming and trading allows seamless peer-to-peer transactions for traders, players and developers thereby cutting the middleman completely out. For those who are already in the milieu of digital card gaming and trading, the fact that it is a high-potential multi-billion dollar industry is not news. This is especially true for early adopters and enthusiasts who have been involved in this since Collectible Card Games (CCGs) first emerged back in the 1990s. It is news, however, that digital Trading Card Game (TCG) platforms are getting a radical overhaul manifested in the new blockchain-based Nova Token Platform. The evolution of collectible card games in the past few decades goes roughly like this: Magic: The Gathering was invented by Richard Garfield in the early 1990s and was an instant smashing success. Shortly thereafter, towards the end of the same decade, CCGs went digital with a couple of games. Heatherstone was a game changer in the Digital Collectible Card Games (DCCG) realm, garnering a lot of popularity and success. So it is safe to say that in the same way that technology has changed many other industries, CCGs have caught the tech wave. It is also safe to say, that while there have been remarkable advancements in the technology, the core business model has persisted with little to no change. That is to say; most industries operate within a centralized framework, where the middleman rakes in most of the benefits. In the DCCG industry, this has affected card collectors, card game players and developers alike, who are all too familiar with the downside of digital gaming in general and CCGs in specific. It is not an overstatement to say the Blockchain t Continue reading >>
Ether Legends A Next Generation Trading Card Game And Gaming Platform Coming To The Ethereum Blockchain!
Ether Legends A Next Generation Trading Card Game and Gaming Platform coming to the Ethereum Blockchain! The Ether Legends and Elementeum token ICO are set tostartFebruary 15th, in multiple phases lasting 49 days. Elementeum Games, LLC has created a trading card game Ether Legends with a limitless gaming platform worthy of a closer look. Ether Legends takes all of the great things about physical and digital collectible trading card games with their own twist and combines them in the blockchain for a true, next level user experience.

Coupled with rarity and one of a kind, astounding artwork, Ether Legends trading cards add value for players that want to collect, and find uniqueness in each and every card. Ether Legends takes it a step further to allow redemption of physical trading cards to the Blockchain using a unique QR Code located on the back of the trading card. The gaming platform takes the physical trading card attributes and transforms them into player held assets, bringing them in to the digital world, stored and viewable in your digital wallet. With the addition of the Ether Legends gaming platform integrating Blockchain technology, the digital trading cards are unique, owned by the player for them to decide whether to use the card in digital game play, trade or sell the digital card at their leisure through the online marketplace. This decentralized model is much different than the current trading card games that own all of your data on centralized servers where you have limited rights to your digital content. You dont have to own physical trading cards to gain access to digital game play or the marketplace, although this option makes for a great feature for those Continue reading >>
A Short Introduction To Ledger Legends, A Trading Card Game Powered By Ethereum.
Trading Card game on the Ethereum Platform A Short Introduction to Ledger Legends, a trading card game powered by Ethereum. Ledger Legends is an early access trading card game thats inspired by Gwent, the card game from the Witcher series. Its unique among TCGs in that its cards are not handled by any central authority but by a smart contract on the Ethereum blockchain. This smart contract implements the new ERC721 standard for non-fungible tokens which was pioneered by CryptoKitties. The ERC721 standard is similar to the better known ERC20 standard but its for tokens that cannot be substituted for another. The importance of the cards being handled by a smart contract cannot be understated because it makes them tangible, it makes them yours for real, nobody can take them away from you and you can trade them to anyone you want. This makes Ledger Legends closer to a physical card game like Magic: The Gathering instead of a central digital one like Hearthstone. The dueling interface, spartan but functional. Like a physical card when you want to duel someone you go to a central place, in the real world its usually an Internet caf or a game store, in Ledger Legends its the Arena Server. The Arena Server is a centralized service which you authenticate to with your Ethereum account. When you are authenticated it then fetches your cards from the ERC721 contract on the blockchain and you can use them to play with. Dueling doesnt cost anything and does not involve a transaction, you can duel with an account with zero ETH, you can even duel with an account with zero cards, although then you would be dueling with the crummy house deck. All thats needed for dueling is just a Web3 enabled browser like MetaMask and a signature from you securing that you own the private key of your ac Continue reading >>

Ethereum Game Cryptokitties Now Has Some Serious Rivals
Ethereum Game CryptoKitties Now Has Some Serious Rivals Feb 17, 2018 at 10:00 UTC|UpdatedFeb 19, 2018 at 10:25 UTC Some people just aren't that into digital cats. Once the only major ethereum application (or dapp ) to see a large number of users trading " crypto collectables ," CryptoKitties is seeing new competition from projects seeking to issue their own tradable code on the blockchain. Zombies, countries - even crypto celebrities - are now creating whole new markets for exchangeable goods. Indeed, earlier this week, more than $10 million in ether was documented to be circulating within ethereum games, according to data collected by DappRadar . "If 2017 was the year of the ICOs on ethereum, 2018 is the year of the crypto games on ethereum," Iuri Matias, developer of ethereum dapps framework Embark, tweeted . Maybe it should be no surprise, since the items being traded have produced incredible price tags. For instance, the most expensive cats on CryptoKitties are currently worth 100,000 ETH per cat, or $93.4 million at today's prices. Simon Powell, developerof CryptoCountries, one of the games garnering a significant amount of attention, told CoinDesk: "We're in the middle of the crypto gaming craze." And while CryptoKitties is still, by far, the most successful game according to transaction count, it has markedly ebbed since its peak in December. Entering February, some alternatives are attracting higher volumes. Here are the top-grossing games giving CryptoKitties a scare. The slick interface and money-making potential of CryptoCountries puts it first in line as the top-grossing ethereum game today. Billed as offering "world domination on the blockchain," the game allows users to purchase countries on a digital map in what amounts to a twist on the board game class Continue reading >>
