CryptoMonsters: Unique & Tradable Litecoin Blockchain Game?
For those who love gaming and the blockchain, you will be glad to learn that the CryptoMonsters game was successfully launched. This app offers users various collectibles with features and concepts similar to crypto kitties, a game powered by the blockchain. However, the difference is that CryptoMonsters will run on the Litecoin Network instead of the Ethereum Network.
About The CryptoMonsters Game
This game is about getting a monster to evolve via various actions that are recorded on the blockchain from inception to death. The concept behind this game is quite simple. It is based on a virtual world, which is based on the Litecoin network. In this virtual world, there are CryptoMonsters, which evolve continually and interact with each other.
In the first stage, the game will let the early users get a free monster. However, once the game is released, the monsters run out almost immediately due to the high demand. Now users need to purchase one of the monsters from the marketplace. The prices of monsters can be as high as $500 depending on various factors. For instance, the strength, level, rarity, and many other factors will determine the price.
The monsters have levels that range from 1 to 200. Currently, there are no top-level monsters since the game is still young. However, it will not be long before users see evolved monsters as the game becomes more active and mature.
Players have an option to split monsters, therefore, getting two monsters at a lower level. They may also choose to mature and evolve a creature to level it up. As with many other games, evolution involves a complex and risky task such as fighting with other monsters in combat. If a monster wins the fight, it will increase the level. However, if it is not victorious, it is going to lose its level.
Every monster acquires some of the stats of its losing opponent. If a monster falls below 0.2, it will die. According to its creator, CryptoGod, the monster will have ascended to crypto monster paradise.
The Role Of The Litecoin Network
This game is based on the continuous generation of blocks, using the Litecoin network as a sort of clock. At each tick of this clock, evolution takes a step forward. Depending on how far the Litecoin network has progressed, one monster wins and the other dies. The result is that cryptomonsters are always changing, growing or shrinking, and in the process, exchanging characteristics.
The CryptoMonsters Success
This game has been nothing but successful; this is according to the game’s official Twitter account. In a tweet, it was stated that the new game was registering 2.3 new users every second. The tweet further added that their mailing provider was having trouble sending all confirmation messages. It concluded by stating they were working to resolve the problem.
This shows that it has the potential to be the Cryptokitties of the Litecoin network. However, the hope is that it does not place so much weight on the Litecoin network that it slows it down. This is what happened with CryptoKitties at some point.
