Game studio Thoughts in Motion, Corp. has announced its end-to-end blockchain role-playing fighting game CryptoFights will adopt Enjin Coin’s platform to create in-game items using the next-generation ERC-1155 token standard. CryptoFights has broken new blockchain gaming barriers with the use of Delegated Proof of Stake, a democratic consensus system that yields high performance gameplay and enables trustless, secure state changes for rounds. CryptoFights’ game client communicates with a decentralized sidechain backend and doesn’t depend on centralized servers for operation.

CryptoFights, an innovative 1vs1 role-playing fighting game by Thoughts in Motion, utilizes blockchain technology to manage in-game assets and gameplay. Featuring serverless gameplay, CryptoFights uses a sidechain to enable high performance gaming while securing game assets on the Ethereum mainchain. It can be described as a turn-based Street Fighter, with interchangeable weapons and armor providing a real-time strategic advantage to players who outmatch their opponents.

The trustless gaming architecture of CryptoFights utilizes blockchain validation to prevent cheating and provide transparency. End-to-end integration of blockchain technology into its game mechanics and economics makes CryptoFights one of the most ambitious blockchain gaming projects in development.

CryptoFights will utilize the ERC-1155 Crypto Items Standard to mint in-game assets on the Ethereum blockchain. This groundbreaking new token standard has recently made headlines given its potential to replace ERC-20 and ERC-721. Created by cryptocurrency project Enjin Coin (ENJ), ERC-1155 offers the flexibility to create fungible, non-fungible, and semi-fungible tokens. It also enables developers to place the majority of their code into one core contract and use identifiers to prompt an infinite number of tokens to draw from that single set of source code. This monolithic approach to code distribution will not only serve to drastically cut down the vast sums of redundant code copy-pasted into every token; it will also reduce gas costs by up to 90% when deploying the hundreds of tokens used by most games.

CryptoFights will also use Enjin Coin to back the value of their items, meaning in-game items, represented by ERC-1155 tokens, will contain an amount of ENJ that users can later retrieve by “melting” their items. Users can also buy, sell, and trade their ERC-1155 tokens through third-party platforms, while CryptoFights is able to monetize these external peer-to-peer marketplaces with transaction fees automatically obtained and allocated using Enjin Coin’s smart contracts.

Using ERC-1155, CryptoFights can also save on gas fees by bundling transactions. For example, on June 24, Enjin Coin’s developers became the first team to conduct an on-chain transaction with more than one class of token. In a single transaction containing 102 different token types, Enjin Coin developers sent 10,000 ENJ-branded ERC-1155 tokens (to simulate cryptocurrency), 500 “Gold Coins” (to simulate in-game currency), and 100 one-of-a-kind items (to simulate unique in-game items). The total gas cost for this complex transaction was just $2.42.

Which Cryptocurrencies Will Survive The Altcoin Apocalypse?

With the massive crypto market rout that has occurred in ‘red August’ many are now talking of an altcoin extinction which could spell the demise for the majority of them. Which ones are likely to survive is the key question. Most of the altcoins have dropped way below their price levels this time last year and are 80-90% down from their all-time highs. This has led many to surmise that it could be game over for many of them. According to Ted Rogers, the president of crypto wallet provider Xapo, this extinction level event could wipe out 90% of the altcoins; We could be in the midst of the extinction-level event for “cryptoassets” that many maximalists have predicted. 90%+ of @CoinMarketCap list will disappear eventually – might as well happen now. Meantime, lower BTC price means incredible opportunity to buy more #bitcoin — Ted Rogers (@tedmrogers) August 14, 2018 This sentiment has been echoed by Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin when he famously said that most of the coins on Coinmarketcap will go to zero back in October before the big run up. Buterin’s comments were aimed more at low quality alts, or ‘shitcoins’ as they’re commonly known in the trade. Rogers, however, believes that only Bitcoin is the king and now is the best time to buy it. He may be onto something since Bitcoin’s market dominance has increased to 53.7%, its highest level this year. Surviving the Extinction If there is merit to these words, which altcoins will survive? To find out we need to look back to the ones that have survived such market drops in the past. These are most likely to survive this slump and possibly grow stronger in the future. Going back to 2013/14 is an almost mirror image of the current market situation with a huge pump at the end of the year and a massive dump throughout 2014 when markets shed 80% before recovering again in 2015. Total Market Capitalization 2013-14 Looking back at altcoins in 2014 we can see Litecoin as the second most popular cryptocurrency, priced at just $9. Also in the top twenty altcoins back then were XRP, Dash, Nxt, Dogecoin, Bytecoin, Maidsafe, and Monero with a few others. The rest have faded into obscurity so it is likely that these few will survive the current market depression. More recently there were a couple of smaller jumps and drops in 2016. Altcoins around back then include Ethereum which has taken and held the second spot as it is now the platform of choice for 90% of blockchain startups. Also in the top twenty were the same coins as in 2014 plus Nem, Lisk, DigixDAO, Waves, Steem, Siacoin and Stellar. This is not to say that they will definitely be around next year but they have a better chance than some of the newcomers simply because they have weathered these storms before. A Working Product or System Another factor to consider is whether a project has a working product or is just still a concept or work in progress. This could be fodder for extinction as non-operational altcoins are weeded out in favor of ones that actually have something on the table or have made significant partnerships. Looking at today’s top ten Cardano is the worst performing altcoin dropping 93% from its all-time high. It does not yet have a fully working product and is largely conceptual though the roadmap does look busy, whether this is enough to avoid extinction remains to be seen. EOS is similar with no real functioning product and a massive slide of 80% since the hyped pump it had in April. Iota also seems ahead of its time and has lost over 90% since its ATH, and then there is Tron which must be the most overhyped altcoin in the list that still doesn’t really do anything yet. There are too many to mention, 1845 on Coinmarketcap in fact, and this article is largely hypothetical but if such an apocalypse is to occur, only those that have survived the test of time and have some degree of product functionality have the best chances of surviving again.
