Editor's note: The following is a guest post by Vladimir Tomko, CEO of Blockchain Cuties.
TRON is widely known as a decentralized blockchain-based protocol that operates with progressive NFT technology. An NFT is a non-fungible token, the development of which completely changed dApps’ development.
In a blockchain thesaurus you would find NFT grouped with singularity. These are cryptographic, interchangeable tokens considered as digital assets. NFTs are designed to work like other well-known tokens in terms of their functionality.
In DGaming, these tokens are used to represent rare, one-of-a-kind in-game assets. Thanks to them, players get to experience full ownership of the value they have produced. This value, aka collectibles, cannot be taken from them, and no one can dictate the terms of its usage.
It works according to the fundamental principle of blockchain technology which is to instantly transfer all kinds of assets without a third party. In other words, DGaming players are able to sell their collectibles in whichever way they want, for whatever price a buyer is willing to pay for it.
All collectibles share TRON's NFT status, which is equal to ERC-721 tokens on the Ethereum Blockchain. But better.
Don't judge blockchain by its big name, judge it by its TPS
TPS is the number of transactions processing on a blockchain per second. Transaction processing capacity defines gameplay options. The TRON blockchain has a processing capacity of 10 000 per second whereas Ethereum can only handle 15.
In addition to that, TRON requires no fee for its transactions, providing players with continuous game involvement. At times, the Ethereum blockchain can come up with some unreasonably high transaction fees which creates the phenomenon of passively active players.
This means that they are technically in the game but, before making any move related to selling, buying or exchanging their collectibles, players have to check the gas price or mining commission fee.
So, if the network load is high and gas prices are high as well, only rare players tend to live their DGaming life to the fullest. Justin Sun, the CEO of TRON, stated that TRON (TRX) is “80 times faster than Ethereum (ETH)” in terms of scalability.
The new TRON standard for crypto collectible games has a name: Blockchain Cuties
On the 29th of November, 2018, TRON issued a public statement regarding its commitment to Dgaming on the blockchain. The TRON Arcade is a part of this ambitious plan. The TRON Arcade has a $100M fund which will play a crucial role in encouraging talented developers to join in TRON's mission to create the best DGaming experience for players from all over the world.
The number of DGames which will appear on the TRON Arcade is limited. TRON will filter out games with lame graphics and games that lack good back story. However, the first crypto collectible game on the TRON Arcade is going to be released by the end of December 2018, and its name is Blockchain Cuties.
Among the reasons why Cuties was selected first is that Blockchain Cuties and TRON are on the same page in terms of the TRON’s mission. Like TRON, Cuties implements NTF technology, and offer non-fungible tokens in the form of the Cuties themselves.
Users can play with their Cuties (puppies, lizards, bear cubs, cats, hedgehogs, and other animals and fantasy creatures) by sending them on adventures, arming them, breeding them, and even selling them in the local marketplace or placing them on exchanges like OpenSea.
Can someone explain what TRX is? The Mythic Bear-o-Bull? All of these other creatures?
TRON's mainnet was launched in June 2018. Since then it uses TRX which is its proprietary cryptocurrency token. TRX supports NFT technology which means that TRON's non-fungible token, placed in the crypto collectible game, can be shaped as any creature imaginable.
