XAYA Plans to Modernize Gaming World with Blockchain TechnologyAugust 8, 2018
The global video game industry is estimated to be valued at around US$100 billion, wherein cryptocurrencies are inching for the mainstream use. It is not surprising that several companies want to marry the two and bring the advantages of blockchain technology to the gaming world. It can also create millions of new consumers.
The effect of this on the industry is significant. One of the companies that hope to benefit is XAYA. It was a custom-built blockchain that is designed for gaming. The brains behind it describe it as “The Ultimate Blockchain Gaming Platform.” XAYA is composed of elements from Namecoin and Bitcoin Core.
Based on the company, XAYA is ideal for decentralized, real-time, and trustless infinitely-scalable gameplay. It has a bonus of owning digital assets and characters that the gamers will surely enjoy. XAYA is formerly called as Chimaera and was developed by the self-described inventors of blockchain gaming, who were recognized for the success of Huntercoin project in 2013.
XAYA is expected to offer the game developers with a variety of infrastructure and tools to give them the ability to establish game worlds according to their specifications. With the help of the XAYA technology, developers can now have the chance to create decentralized games which can issue custom game currency that can be traded for CHI (the XAYA tokens) and other assets or coins that are compatible with XAYA blockchain.
Mainnet will go live
Based on the company, the users can have the access for their integrated wallets and asset wallets through XAYA’s mainnet. The mainnet is now live and allows the user to sign up for the games that are operated in XAYA. Meanwhile, Treat Fighter was the company’s first game. It was founded by the TrickyFast Studios. It will be launched soon on mainnet together with Soccer Manager Crypto for release at the end of 2018.
The project of XAYA is open to all external developers. The founders explained that prior knowledge of solidity and other blockchain programming language is not highly required. Thus, the games can be coded in different languages. With this, they claim that XAYA is the simplest platform for blockchain games creation worldwide.
The company’s public and private pre-sales have ended, but the CHI biggest allocation will still be available until the main sale. It will start on August 29. XAYA is expected to usher in a new era of gaming.
