Ever imagined if anime would one day be able to come into the crypto space? The idea of having anime characters enter into the cryptosphere has been long desired by many crypto users. One unique platform has achieved this in 2019. This platform is known as ChainGuardians.io which is a cryptocurrency-meets-anime themed blockchain collectable game. The in-game assets are represented as unique ERC-721 tokens based on the Ethereum blockchain.

ChainGuardian.io hopes to bring the NFT community a never seen before gaming ecosystem founded upon: competitive gameplay through chain analysis technology, advanced game economics which integrates players’ real life cryptocurrency and NFT holdings and the experience of expandable and persistent multi-blockchain worlds. The vision of ChainGuardians is to create one of the world’s most enjoyable blockchain gaming experiences with the combination of traditional gaming concepts with blockchain technology.Furthermore, the ChainGuardian platform hopes to develop a gaming platform that will be capable of functioning upon existing or developing virtual worlds, or even as a completely separate entity.

What type of assets are there exactly?

On the platform there are assets which include weapons and armours, supporting characters, and digital collectibles also known as crypto-collectibles. So all the collectible assets can be deployed in game and are all represented as unique ERC-721 Non-Fungible Tokens on the Ethereum blockchain. By doing this, it ensures that the assets are one of a kind and also prevents it from duplication or counterfeits. Moreover, all the collectible assets will be limited in quantity. This helps to ensure its scarcity and value within the marketplaces. The users will also have an option to buy and sell the assets on the secondary Non-Fungible Token marketplaces.

What does ChainGuardians do differently from other crypto gaming platforms?

The idea of ‘Pay to Win’ has been a big problem in many of the prominent games today. These tactics often hinder the entry of newer players and limits the game from reaching its full potential. Moreover many of the blockchain games have unique ideas, yet many are unable to get beyond pre-sales. So what do ChainGuardians attempt to do differently?

ChainGuardians attempts to change the market with the following protocols:

  • Taking regular feedback from the community
  • Focus on development of end-game content and advancements in playability
  • Multiple game modes including: PVP, PVE, and collaborative PVE raids
  • With balancing of Guardians, lower ranking characters, item and economy
  • Continuous development of battle meta and ‘elemental’ type balancing
  • Allowing for ‘Bring Your Own NFT’
  • The ‘Loyalty System’
  • In-game testing, balancing and simulations
  • Whitelisting through SafeName to prevent bots and also excessive multi account creations
  • Multiple events and competitions

So is there a token or something?

The ChainGuardians platform has its own $CGG, governance token. There are two main ways for you to earn $CGG. One is through staking any NFT that has been added into the NFT Mining game. By winning the block rewards, the users will then be credited with ChainGuardian Credits (CGC) which can be converted into ChainGuardian tokens (CGG). Another way to earn tokens is through playing the ChainGuardians RPG. So you’ll be battling through the Cryptoverse and you will be rewarded with CGC each time! More importantly, the $CGG token will allow you to earn POWER (liquidity provider token) rewards by providing CGG pairs, stake POWER tokens and earn CGG (APY), take CGG to earn exclusive NFTs and partner tokens, and finally vote on vital decisions regarding the ecosystem.

World Spheres:

Within the ChainGuardians platform, there are World Spheres which are ERC-721 tokens. They represent an extremely unique and low supply in-game asset. The World Spheres are limited to 9 per world and the attributes will have special benefits just to its holders! There’s a legend that says if one single player obtains all 9 World Spheres, they will have the ability to make a wish to come true. Four of the World Spheres will be distributed to the community and five World Spheres will be scattered across the world. Once a player obtains all the World Spheres and activates the ‘Make a Wish’ feature, the World Spheres will be re-allocated.

CG-Force Amplification Artifact (ERC-721):

Anyone that holds gate portal access cards (an ERC-721) will be able to participate in the world creation events or during cataclysms. During these seeding events that occur throughout the cryptoverse, energy Forces will be extracted from the worlds. This allows players that hold a gate portal access card to draw energy Forces from their alternate universe Crypto holdings. Players that hold cryptocurrencies that are stipulated by the developers will also be rewarded. This could be just holding a certain amount of  Ethereum in your wallets, which will grant energy Force points that will be amplified by these artifacts. The Powerful Force Amplification Artifacts can provide: 2x, 3x, and even 5x energy duplication and also a rumored legendary artifact that can project up to 50x!
