Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian announced he will be live-streaming a face-off match between the lead developer and himself of the latest collectible card game based on the blockchain named SkyWeaver as we are reading in the latest cryptocurrency news.
The Reddit co-founder is extremely popular to the Reddit community because he famously invested in multiple successful startups and he is now playing his hand in the crypto space because of his latest investment. The Horizon Blockchain Games last month received up to $3.75 million in seed funding from Alexis Ohanian himself and other investors. SkyWeaver is an ethereum-based title that hopes to take on the kingpin of all digital card games Hearthstone and its five year success; the gaming kingpin attracted more than 100 million players to its franchise so now the Reddit co-founder is now catching on.
In Hearthstone and other digital equivalents, cards are not really freely transferrable so if a player you move on to other gaming pastures, your years of hard work collecting fighters will no mean anything. You can’t sell them but you also cannot take them with you so you can’t certainly gift them to anyone else unless they take control of your account. The limitation was put in order to bane of many online card collectible players who have put the time to see some monetary reward. There is also the problem that some players experience by unlocking duplicate cards. This results in a frustrated fanbase with zero exchange options:
“With Skyweaver using Ethereum, it means you can send your cards to your friends, trade them with other players on our platform, trade them on another website, buy/sell them on Reddit, burn them, lend them to people that want to play with your cards while you are on vacation, etc. Basically, we can’t prevent you from doing whatever you want with these cards, just like physical cards.”
SkyWeaver is now working in a private beta and is expected to launch later this year and in the meantime Horizon is inviting new players to try out the game every week as we read in the reports in the coming altcoin news.
