Tron Partners with Final-Blade Game Creator SkyPeople to Develop Blockchain-based Games
SkyPeople recently took Korea and Taiwan gaming markets by storm after launching Final Blade. Now, the company has signed a memorandum of understanding with Tron to develop another game.
Last month, SkyPeople launched Final Blade, an RPG title for mobile devices. The game has since gone viral in Korea and Taiwan. After conquering its local region, SkyPeople is now looking to reach global audiences by developing titles based on the Tron blockchain.
According to Derek Park, the CEO of SkyPeople, he signed an agreement with Tron’s Justin Sun at the beginning of April. The two companies agreed to collaborate in the development if several blockchain-based games, with the first in line being Dragon Castle. The objective of this partnership is to promote the adoption of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology in real-world situations
Additionally, Derek said that the deal stems from the belief that SkyPeople will develop games that will encourage more people to use the Tron blockchain network actively. He further expressed confidence that the partnership will prove the viability of the blockchain-driven gaming industry.
On his part, Justin believes that Tron’s client base will grow as a result of this partnership. This, in turn, will create additional use cases for TRX, the Tron blockchain and BitTorrent.
Dragon Castle is an action-packed game in which you fight against monstrous dragons, orcs and skeletons, in exchange for TRX rewards. The game is available for Android and Desktop platforms, though you have to download the Tronlink mobile app and Tronlink browser extension, respectively.
The game has its native token, DC, which will be actively used in the future.
Tron and Blockchain Gaming
In 218, Tron set up a special fund to support developers who wish to build DApps and blockchain games on their platform. This move prompted many developers to migrate from competing platforms, mainly EOS and the Ethereum network.
To date, this trend continues. The most significant new in this regard is the departure of BitGuild from Ethereum to Tron, as reported by Ethereum World News.
