Bridge Champ – the new Ardor project in the casual gaming market
We are glad to announce the new Ardor and Ignis project - Bridge Champ, the first blockchain version of the strategy card game Bridge, in partnership with Bridge Online Academy - experts in Bridge online training.
The gaming industry is booming and the lack of white-label solutions for online bridge opens a unique opportunity for Jelurida's Bridge Champ as a groundbreaking play engine to be offered to millions of players worldwide. Bridge Champ provides a purpose-built and customizable environment, and combines a state-of-the-art gaming engine with open APIs for competition organization and implementation. Its user interface will include social elements such as video and audio sharing, gamification, and tokenization. The benefits of the on-chain version are new competition features, tamper-proof achievements registration, proven randomization, and cheat prevention. The plan is to develop an ecosystem around game tokens, which will be available for use in other casual gaming platforms too.
The announcement has been covered by many crypto news as Yahoo Finance, Bitcoinist, Coinspeaker, and UToday.
Lior's interview for Crypto Coin Show with Ashton Addison
In this interview for Crypto Coin Show, Lior presents how Ardor's unique parent-child chain architecture solves the existing blockchain industry problems. It provides scalability, the possibility for organizations to sponsor users' transaction fees, decentralization without compromising security, a public blockchain with optional privacy functions, and the Ignis lightweight contracts - safer and faster compared to the Ethereum smart contracts. Above everything, Ardor blockchain technology can be adopted as the solution to real world problems, enabling two parties that don't trust each other to collaborate. Watch the recorded interview here.

A new stable version is to be released soon, with multiple improvements and feature enhancements accumulated since this last update.
