Non-fungible tokens, unique transferrable blockchain-based assets, are widely utilized as game items. The most popular blockchain games, Gods Unchained and CryptoKitties, are developed around NFTs. Now, 'The Way of the Tiger', the iconic ninja adventure gamebook, will be released on a blockchain.

The return of a legend

'The Way of the Tiger' was released by award-winning author Jamie Thomson in the 1980s. It reveals the story of a fantasy world where the reader becomes a young samurai who takes on a journey to avenge his foster father and recover stolen artifacts.

Nowadays, Jamie Thomson, the author of the original book, decided to bring this exciting story to the blockchain. Firstly, he had planned to launch an ordinary RPG based on the famous book, but then he felt like it was 'the right time' to switch the idea for the blockchain technology.

 "Imagine playing Magic the Gathering but knowing if you owned a card, it really does belong to you."

That's how Mr. Thomson described the role of NFTs in his future game. According to the press release, game production start-ups Eidos and Fable will join forces with IT-mogul Microsoft to develop this game.

A game on a serious blockchain

'The Way of the Tiger' will launch on the VeChain Thor blockchain, which is generally associated with enterprises and supply-chain management. The project's infrastructure was powered by the Ethereum blockchain before it transitioned to the native VeChainThor blockchain.

The blockchain was chosen "due to its ability to scale, and create our cards and items without having to deal with all the crypto stuff." Also, VeChain Thor implemented the mechanism of 'fee delegation,' which doesn't require crypto for transferring cards.    

According to the current version of the roadmap, 'The Way of the Tiger' will be presented to the gaming world in 2020.

After Bitcoin bulls reclaimed the $7,400 level earlier, the flagship currency is holding in the $7,500 area. A crypto analyst says that these are ‘standard crypto games’ – Bitcoin is likely to surge into the $8,000 area before plunging again.

Bulls, get ready to rock - $8,200 on the horizon

At press-time, Bitcoin is swapping hands at $7,544. For a long while prior to that the price was trading flat in the $7,200-$7,300 area.

However, on Friday, the Bitcoin price managed to recover to the $7,500 level.

The analyst @CryptoMichNL reckons that Bitcoin is following a standard pattern of the volatile crypto market and is going to please the bulls before giving them a nasty surprise of a bearish reversal.

‘Bitcoin halving is the main catalyst’

The next Bitcoin halving programmed by Satoshi Nakamoto, the Great and Terrible, is to happen in May 2020. Many in the community believe it to accelerate the Bitcoin price surge since miners have not priced it in.

Doubts about the BTC halving impact

However, a co-founder of the Morgan Creek Digital Jason Williams, the less Twitter-active than his colleague Anthony Pompliano, reckons that the Bitcoin price is likely to dip after the halving. The thing is that miners are going to get twice as fewer BTC for each new block than now and many of them are going to have to sell their BTC to pay the bills.

Besides, chances are high that small mining pools will quit since mining will stop giving them enough profit.
