Why Gaming Could Be the Catalyst for Mainstream Blockchain Adoption

Coincodex: Many projects are now also recognizing that it may be easier to lure in gamers by giving them a blockchain-based platform to play their favorite games. Swiss blockchain development firm Jelurida is one example, having spotted an opportunity to put the popular card game bridge on its Ardor blockchain platform. Hundreds of millions of people play bridge, all over the world, in clubs, in tournaments, and in their homes. However, the advent of the COVID-19 crisis has left many people without the opportunity to participate due to social distancing measures. No company currently offers a white label solution that makes it easy for new operators to set up. Therefore, Jelurida is developing Bridge Champ, a customizable gaming platform purpose-built for bridge. It allows operators to set up competitions using the platform’s in-game economy, and players can “mine” bridge tokens based on proof of play and player achievements. All game results and achievements are recorded on the blockchain, and the platform uses blockchain for proven randomization.

20201208 L Blockonomi Ardor vs Polkadot
Can Long-standing Ardor Square Up to New Arrival Polkadot?

Blockonomi : Ardor and Polkadot have much in common, but just as much that separates them. Both have made headlines in the crypto press this year. In Polkadot’s case, it was because the long-awaited brainchild of Ethereum co-founder Gavin Wood had finally launched on mainnet after three years in development. In contrast, Ardor launched nearly three years ago in January 2018. However, this year, it has gained adoption for several notable use cases, including by the Austrian government for two projects. One is to develop a gamification solution for a sustainability initiative aimed at recycling waste heat back into the energy grid. Ardor has also proved its value in the fight against the global pandemic, working on a solution for authenticating COVID-19 tracking data to help Austrian citizens get easier access to virus tests.

With Ethereum 2.0 About to Launch, Ardor Continues to Thrive

BTCManager: While Ethereum has spent several years designing and building its multi-chain architecture, Ardor will soon enter its fourth year of uninterrupted operation. The project launched in January of 2018 as the first multi-chain platform. It uses a parent-and-child chain structure to enable parallel processing, achieving up to 100 transactions per second as a standalone platform. Ardor also operates several mechanisms designed to ensure it can remain scalable into the future. One of the challenges faced by traditional linear blockchains is bloat. Because the blockchain stores every transaction, the amount of data that a node must download when joining the network is always becoming progressively larger.

Jelurida announces blockchain-based bridge strategy game

Bitcoinist: Blockchain software development firm Jelurida is set to launch an on-chain version of the bridge, the strategy card game. The platform will be called Bridge Champ and will enable anyone to set up their own white-label bridge gaming environment. The game leverages the benefits of blockchain, including in-game tokens and cheat prevention. Players will be able to “mine” bridge tokens based on “proof of play” and their achievements record, which is also stored securely on the Ignis blockchain. Online bridge was already popular among the millions of bridge players worldwide. However, since the coronavirus pandemic has restricted social opportunities, online bridge has proliferated to the point where the American Contract Bridge League reported it had seen a fivefold increase in usage by June 2020. For the benefit of the uninitiated, bridge is sometimes referred to as the “chess of card games” due to its complexity and sophisticated gameplay.
