Ethereum Blockchain Game HyperDragons Dethrones CryptoKitties as Most Popular dApp
Ethereum’s Blockchain Has a New Top Game – “HyperDragons”
Ethereum’s blockchain is known for their long list of decentralized apps (dApps), and one of the most popular games has been CryptoKitties for quite a while. It started with a Series A financing round, which was setup by Andreessen Horowitz and brought in $12 million. It stayed at the top of the charts for quite a while, but there have been many competitors trying to take away their high ranking. Right now, HyperDragons seems to be taking over.
HyperDragons uses blockchain to support their strategy game, allowing players to create kingdoms, earn new assets, and battle dragons. They have experienced a 10x increase in the users that play it daily, along with a 15x increase in money spent within the game since they have added the Tenfold Protocol integration. This integration makes it possible for players to enter the game without fees for swift and gas gameplay. It is this single move involving lowered barriers that has pushed HyperDragons ahead.
SludgeFeed was among the first publications to discuss the impact that video games could make blockchain technology more well-known around the world. With the adaption of video games into the blockchain, many investment firms have taken notice and invested capital into these dApps to make a profit as well.
Still, there are a fairly low number of users across dApps, in comparison with the people involved in the industry. This will remain unchanged until the barriers for the rest of the applications come down, in comparison with decentralized alternatives.
