New data shows that the current bear climate has not negatively impacted blockchain games. According to a DappRagamdar report, blockchain gaming made up nearly 52% of all unique active wallets (UAWs), with nearly 1.1 million UAWs in Q2 of this year.
While the landscape is still developing, new blockchain games are taking the industry by storm. One such is Calvaria: Duels of Eternity.
Bringing Crypto Adoption Ever Closer
The gap between real-world activities and the crypto space is not closing quickly. While there have been several notable attempts from gaming and decentralized finance (DeFi) ecosystems, mainstream adoption has largely been impacted by the perceived unstable nature of cryptocurrencies.
Calvaria: Duels of Eternity has put this as its focal point of reference and is looking to unite the real world and the crypto space. The blockchain game aims to make gamers ambassadors of cryptocurrencies through its fun and highly immersive crypto card game.
For a start, the project is split into two broad but closely linked modes. The first is the free-to-play (F2P) space which allows regular gamers to play the online strategy game with little crypto interference. The second is the one that has several users excited: the play-to-earn (P2E) option. This rewards the user for spending time playing the game with the gaming token RIA.
Although the F2P mode is crypto-aversive, it still offers users so much value. For a start, Calvaria features a unique story mode for a digital collectible card game. This way, users can directly interface with a narrative that interests them. Another huge thing is that the F2P mode allows users to access regular physical goods and services. Also, the best players would be rewarded with advertising and scholarship opportunities.
The P2E mode is where the best and most amazing deals are found. Aside from earning from playing, users get direct access to the non-fungible token (NFT) capabilities embedded in each card. The rarer a deck of cards or cards is, the more value they command in the Calvaria marketplace and on secondary NFT venues.
Another utility is that users would get access to direct NFT upgrades and even earn royalties from the resales of their cards on other platforms. Even more so, users can wager and bet in tournaments and matches and even stake their RIA tokens to earn even more.
The dual-mode clutch is a genius move from the Calvaria team, as it lets users choose their preferred gaming mode. Even more integral is the gamification script at play. Calvaria aims to use games to educate and influence crypto adoption in the coming years.
How Does It Work?
As we stated earlier, Calvaria is a card game. The platform allows users to assemble their best deck of cards and battle one another to stand a chance to win the RIA token. Each card is an NFT, a digital representation of real-world ownership of assets. These virtual cards are owned by players and stored on the blockchain.
Calvaria is in its presale stage at press time, which means early-bird investors can get the RIA tokens at a bargain. So far, RIA has raised $1.7 million in investment rounds in its fourth presale stage. This points to strong investor demand and the huge potential the project has.
