Mobile Games Industry Veteran Introduces All-New Blockchain Entry, CryptantCrab, with Pre-Sale Announcement

17 October 2018, Malaysia: CryptantCrab is announcing its Pre-Sale release date with a Bounty campaign that is now open to all. The game, which is built on the Ethereum blockchain, takes its inspiration from an Asian past time of raising fighting fish as it provides a similar experience to raising these virtual crustaceans that comes alive on the blockchain.

Created by iCandy Interactive Ltd (ASX: ICI), the public-listed game company announced that the Bounty campaign which kicks off today on 4 October 2018 will reward lucky participants the following:

  • ONE (1) CryptantCrab (worth 0.5 ETH*) is up for grabs per early adopter.

Following the Bounty campaign, the CryptantCrab Pre-Sale will open on 25 October 2018, and early adopters will be rewarded with:

  • Pioneer status for Pre-Sale CryptantCrabs – this status will be visible in-game
  • Higher chances of obtaining Legendary CryptantCrabs
  • Unique Legendary CryptantCrab variants that are only exclusive for this event

Pre-Sale begins globally on 25 October 2018 (12 am, +0 UTC) The full-fledge game is set to be released towards the end of 2018.

A First for Blockchain Games

iCandy began development of CryptantCrab as a spin-off from its award-winning mobile game, Crab War. Utilizing the Ethereum blockchain platform for the first time and reworked as a web-based game, CryptantCrab is an important milestone for iCandy as this will be one of the first blockchain games designed and developed in Southeast Asia.

Unique Gameplay – Mutation and Pet Battle

A key differentiator that makes CryptantCrab stand out is its in-depth gameplay. Each virtual crab is tagged with a digital token and comes with random individualized traits. As users spend time learning and discovering the capabilities of their virtual crabs, they can also mutate their crabs’ parts. This is done with the in-game resource, Cryptant.

With Cryptant in hand, players can mutate their crabs as much as they like to create truly unique crabs. Gamers can choose to expand their collections or choose to trade them off in the in-game marketplace. All aspects of the virtual crabs – experience, the rarity of parts, and marketability – will have an impact towards their overall market value within the CryptantCrab economy.

The other aspect of the gameplay – one-versus-one fights – will have a direct effect as multiple battles will raise the overall experience and stats of the virtual crabs. Cryptant is earned via these battles or can be purchased outright from the in-game shop.

Innovating the Games Community

iCandy has an existing mobile game portfolio that has more than 350 million gamers globally. Hence, it seeks to bring the new blockchain gaming experience to its growing community through various cross-promotional activities that it will be running through its game network.

“We are excited at the prospects that blockchain technology is able to put users front and centre with their decisions to manage and improve their in-game resources in a transparent and secure manner. Having the ability to pit these digital crabs against one another in battles will create a dynamic global gaming environment that is completely new for most gamers. We look forward to building the world of CryptantCrab with our players and, in turn, create a vibrant community of fans and interested gamers who want to experience blockchain gaming,” said Desmond Lee, COO of iCandy.

Bitcoin Cash Price Gets Skewed due to Exchange Trickery

A lot of confusing action is taking place where the Bitcoin Cash price is concerned. Although its actual decline in value is quite obvious for everyone to see, the real price of BCH is not necessarily what people can see on Coinmarketcap. This is primarily because numerous exchanges treat BCHABC as Bitcoin Cash already despite nothing being decided in terms of which chain will be the longest. Bitcoin Cash Value Fluctuates Heavily Depending on where traders look at, the price of Bitcoin Cash will be either close to the $400 level or down to $250-ish. That is quite a large gap between prices, yet one that is also very easy to explain. Bitcoin Cash, as people knew it before the fork, no longer exists. Most professional exchanges have also retired this price ticker, for the time being. As the hash war rages on, there are still a lot of unknown factors waiting to be addressed. Despite this ongoing kerfuffle, there is a net 5.76% decrease in the Bitcoin Cash price, and a 5.4% decline over Bitcoin. More specifically, that is what CoinMarketCap reports at this time, although this is not necessarily the case whatsoever. In fact, some exchanges are clearly jumping the gun by labeling BCHABC as BCH and thus dragging the Bitcoin Cash price down a bit more. Exchanges currently engaging in this activity include Bittrex and Coinex, neither of which plays a big role of importance when it comes to trading. However, based on the current value of BCH on Bitfinex and Gate.io, it seems a similar incident is taking place. One also has to keep in mind Bitcoin Cash was getting battered ahead of the network split as well. Most exchanges have halted trading of BCH indefinitely, primarily because the currency no longer exists. It is evident either BCHABC or BCHSV will take over that name in the future, but nothing has been decided at this point. As such, any trading referring to just “Bitcoin Cash” or “BCH” should be avoided, as most users can never be sure which currency is effectively being traded under this name. All of this skews the picture pertaining to Bitcoin Cash altogether. Coinmarketcap reports there is still $392m in trading volume for BCH, even though that is virtually impossible right now. With so many exchanges freezing deposits and withdrawals, it is evident actual BCH trading is no longer possible whatsoever. Virtually all platforms have deposits of BCHSV and BCHABC frozen as well, which only makes this market trend more confusing. It is safe to say the entire network split has been a bit of a mess first and foremost. In the case of Bitcoin Cash itself, that name will – under the current circumstances- not be used across exchanges for much longer. Instead, the two separate camps need to be treated as such first and foremost. Until things settle down – with might not necessarily happen anytime soon – the Bitcoin Cash price itself is pretty much irrelevant for most traders and speculators.
