Blockchain card game attracts $15m investment

Blockchain card game attracts 15m investment

Immutable, an Australian game development studio, has raised fifteen million dollars ($15 million) for the creation of a blockchain card game titled Gods Unchained.

According to industry experts, the project attracted a lot of attention because of the benefits blockchain technology brings to true digital ownership in the video games sector. 

Blockchain card game and platform

The Gods Unchained project is advertised as a blockchain card game, but Immutable is working on developing much more than a single game. 

Their goal is to create a blockchain-based platform, which will facilitate the creation of other item-purchase based games. 

Gods Unchained is an innovative approach to online gaming. The way the game is structured allows users to purchase cards and card sets with cryptocurrency, which then secures the purchase, and prevents users from potentially losing their game assets. 

The game functions thanks to the Ethereum blockchain, and requires users to set up, or connect a dedicated Ether wallet, to complete purchases.  To be able to play Gods Unchained, users are required to download the Metamask browser extension, which facilitates purchases on the blockchain.

Blockchain-based games

Blockchain-based video games are becoming increasingly popular, as more users are attracted to the idea of being connected to the blockchain through a game. 

What is even more interesting is that games of all types are being launched on the blockchain. From casino type games, through puzzle games, to character and card games like Gods Unchained.

While Gods Unchained is still being developed and is yet to exit the beta mode, it has already earned more than four and a half million dollars ($4.5 million) thanks to card purchases.
