Waves has decided to light up the mood of its community on Christmas Eve by presenting a ‘cool’ game where no one loses. Apart from serving as a means of entertainment, the Christmas game will make it easier to grasp the gist behind the Waves ecosystem.
We're launching #blockchain-based #Waves #Christmas game! It's an excellent showcase of how Waves #smartcontracts and Waves Keeper can be used in the gaming industry: https://t.co/AOeDDQytWw
And this is just a teaser of what’s coming!$WAVES— Waves Platform (@wavesplatform) December 24, 2018
A win-win situation
The modus operandi of this game consists of opening the boxes with presents. Keep in mind that the minimum amount of 1.031 WAVES is required in order to start the game. Then, there are two possible scenarios:
You open one out of five boxes that contains 5 WAVES (this amount will be deposited back to your account).
You open any of the four other boxes that contain Christmas toys with the help of which you can decorate a tree. In this case, the fees will be sent to the Children’s Hospice as part of the charity effort initiated by Waves.
The application in the gaming industry
The gaming project, which was developed in partnership with Tradisys, is supposed to showcase the power of Waves smart contracts (the first game to do so). Smart contracts will be used in order to make sure that events in the game are going as planned.
Waves states that this is a perfect example of how the platform’s smart contracts come in handy for creating similar games. The startup’s CEO, Sasha Ivanov, promises that this is only a sneak peek of what is coming in the future.
Blockchain in the gaming industry
Blockchain is already creating disruption in the gaming industry. Recently, U.Today reported how RobotCache is planning to put a stop to Steam’s dominance with its soon-to-be-launched decentralized gaming store. In the blog post, Waves emphasizes the ‘significant’ adoption potential of Blockchain technology.
