    Block & Chain Game Studios Weekly Newsletter January 4, 2019 News @ Block & Chain Happy New Year everyone! It’s 2019 and we have some big things coming your way. You’ve heard plenty about Blockfight and Draggin’ Dragons. Both of those games are nearing release as you know, but we also have a smorgasbord of new game announcements, partnerships and other exciting updates coming your way this year! Stay tuned and sign up for our newsletter if you want it delivered to your inbox each week. Announcing Player Central! We’ve teased Player Central in our newsletters and in our whitepaper, but today, we are opening the kimono. As gamers, we all enjoy platforms like Steam, Battle.net, Xbox Live Arcade and the Sony Playstore. There is a lot of appeal to an all-in-one platform where players can enjoy not just their favorite games, but a personalized space to celebrate their achievements and socialize with their friends. Block and Chain’s Player Central is our answer to those platforms, bringing your personalized player experience to life on the blockchain! Initially, Player Central will include features such as an integrated player wallet, single sign on to all our games, player profile & stats, achievements, live support, and a news feed. Additional features such as friends, live chat, guilds, and other enhancements will be added throughout the year. This is a real competitive advantage for Block and Chain Games, with very few blockchain competitors offering a gamer-centric platform like this. For us, it’s just another great way to bring great games to our players. Look for Player Central v1 launching later this quarter! Each game has its own feature page you can explore before you play. Or you can just dive right into the game! Blockfight Update - Closed Beta has begun! Our limited time pre-launch beta has begun. Those who have signed up to participate are playing the game as we speak and assisting us in making Blockfight the best game it can be! And feedback has been extremely positive so far. We will be running the beta until January 11th so there is still time to participate. If you want to get in on this limited time opportunity simply sign up on our contact page: https://blockandchain.games/support.html Once we have finished polishing the game, it will be ready for launch! Congratulations Mary Ngai! Block and Chain Artist Mary Ngai recently made headlines this week, winning the Academy of Art 18 VIS Grad award for the "Web and Mobile" category. Mary recently completed her Master’s Degree from the Academy and has contributed her amazing talents to several of our games. We’re proud to have Mary on our team! In the News What’s hot in gaming, on and off the blockchain? Here’s where you find out! https://blockonomi.com/crypto-art-puzzles-games/ - The idea of a crypto art that hides a puzzle which pays cash is a new one. There aren’t many precedents for something that is both art and a paying puzzle. B&C: It has been said in game circles that all the great ideas have been used up and new games are simply a different spin on existing mechanics. Yet, here we are with a totally new type of puzzle game that could only come about with the power of blockchain technology. Imagine solving procedurally generated puzzles that offer varying ranges of payoff determined by the blockchain. Now imagine if those puzzles could be user generated and could be sold or traded with other players. Do you keep a puzzle in the hopes of solving it for an unknown reward or do you sell it to another player for a more certain return? The possibilities are endless in this blockchain-only game genre. When someone next asks you “why blockchain” for games, here is a perfect response! Join The Block & Chain Community! Forums Website Youtube Facebook Instagram Twitter Reddit LinkedIn

    Block & Chain Game Studios Weekly Newsletter January 11, 2019 News @ Block & Chain We promised you an exciting start to the year and we weren’t kidding! There is a lot of great news coming out of Block and Chain Games this week that we are thrilled to share with you. So hold onto your hats for this week’s update... As always, remember to sign up for our newsletter if you want it delivered to your inbox each week. 55Play Partnership Announcement The Asian game market, with China in the lead, currently represents the largest and fastest growing player segment in the industry. Free-to-play games were a $12 billion market in 2018 and it is growing at a steady 4% per year. In short, the Asian market is an incredible frontier for our style of blockchain games and we are intent upon making our mark in those territories. Enter 55 Play… About 55Play 55play aims to become the world's largest blockchain game community platform, focusing on providing a convenient and efficient interactive entertainment platform for global game players and blockchain game manufacturers. With a fair and objective attitude, the platform strictly checks the entry of blockchain game manufacturers, provides diversified blockchain games for game players, encourages interactive entertainment among players, and actively shares and evaluates games. Blockchain game manufacturers can provide players with a friendly community, distribution, invitation of beta testers, promotion, instant messaging, props or other game asset transactions, event hosting and other one-stop services. Most of the 55play team comes from China. The platform has listed 40 blockchain games since its launch in December 2018, and have nearly 15,000 following, including WeChat,Toutiao,QQ, Weibo and other prominent Asian social media platforms. With the continuous launch of functional modules and the improvement of user experience, the number of platform games and players will grow explosively. 55Play is featured on the Block and Chain Games home page as a partner. Our banner, Blockfight and the Block & Chain Games platform have been featured on their site, localized into Chinese, with more games to be added. We’re very excited to be a part of this rapidly growing blockchain game community! Check them out here: https://www.55play.com/ https://www.55play.com/article/135.html Blockfight Update - Closed Beta is Done! We want to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated in the Beta test and sent us feedback. Thanks to you, we identified (and remedied) some important issues and added a handful of cool new features. A summary list of updates to the game during Beta is below: Disabled Hall of Victory button on slide-out menu when on the fight results screen. Interrupt win amount rollup if placing a new wager while it's still rolling up from the previous fight. Increased scroll sensitivity on dice selection dialog. Added button under currency balances to "Add Halo or Coins" (text changes if hiding Halo or Coins in settings). Added password confirmation field on account registration dialog. Added player setting to keep music playing during fights (defaults is off). Automatically set focus on the input field of the Cage Simulator. We also added a feature to allow players to set a number of fights to play automatically. So, if you enjoy autoplaying a bunch of fights in a row, this is for you! Blockfight vs. Etheroll When we first set out to build Blockfight, we were amazed at the currency players were sinking into Etheroll. We knew we could make a game that had a lot more entertainment value and entice traditional and non-traditional gamers to the blockchain. Special thanks to our community member jchi2210 for putting this great video together! https://youtu.be/M5pp96WbQ_k And of course, if you’re going to fight weird, ugly, alien creatures, it helps to know more about them. Dossiers for Fighters 7 and 8 were released this week: Once we have finished addressing the last few tasks, Blockfight will be ready to launch! And you can believe we’ll sneak in one or two more new features designed to surprise and delight before then... Draggin’ Dragons Update With all the excitement around Blockfight, we have certainly not been idle with Draggin’ Dragons. Our UI Designers are forging ahead on breeding and battle racing, bringing some great RPG elements to your favorite dragon racing game! And when we say “elements”... Earth, Air, Fire, Water...or maybe something maybe more exotic? Tutorial Videos Block and Chain games are built to appeal to players from all walks of life, no matter what their level of cryptocurrency knowledge. It helps that the Halo Platform is very straightforward and easy to use, but we also provide the resources for players to quickly get their hands on our currency so they can get the most out of our games. All of our games include tutorials and with the wiki (coming soon) and tutorial videos, it will be easy as pie to enable players to enjoy HALO play. Here are two of our “getting started” videos, showing everyone just how easy it is to install a wallet and login with our games: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMTnmVqmFxY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rdyb3Jl8TYA In the News What’s hot in gaming, on and off the blockchain?

    Halo Platform Weekly Newsletter Week of: Dec. 30, 2018 – Jan. 5, 2019 Happy New Year! The Halo Platform Team has kept busy this holiday season, and we’re working full throttle now that January has rolled around. There’s lots of exciting stuff going on around the Halo Platform offices, so let’s dig right in! Halo Currency & Exchange Halo Platform is pleased to announce that trading has opened on STEX. We’ve also been working hard on opening deposits with LATOKEN, however they are currently working through some issues on their backend. We expect these issues to be resolved soon and Halo Platform community members can expect to see deposits open right away thereafter. On the HaloDEX, HST support is ready to go and we will be turning it on at the beginning of next week. BTC support is coming hot on its heels with final testing in progress. New Releases Since the last update, we have continued to improve the platform and address issues encountered by our users. As a result of these updates and new releases, users should see improvements across all systems, particularly the Masternode DAPP. We launched a New Masternode DAPP and completed a major refactor refactor of our AWS architecture to improve stability for lower bandwidth users and overall speed of the remote RPC. A summary of releases completed in the past week are below: Masternode DAPP v2.7.0 Statistics panel is now open by default Changed status Initializing to Funding Updated description of public halo hosted nodes when provisioning Fixed all rounding and decimal display issues T3 and T4 masternodes can only be created privately again Masternode DAPP v2.7.1 Fixes a bug that prevents private masternodes to be joined through Join Private menu Fixes a bug that prevents joining a private masternode after manually adding it Fixes a bug that caused watched masternodes to persist even after they were removed/deleted from existence Fixes a bug that prevented private sell orders to an address from being detected and presenting a notification badge on the menu Fixes a bug that caused some watched masternodes to error out and not be shown on Monitoring Fixes a bug that prevented using Withdraw All rewards function Other News We’re happy to announce we have built a new live status page. Users can now see realtime status of each of our systems and a log of past outages. Take a moment to update your bookmarks to the new link: https://status.haloplatform.tech/ and check it out if you experience any downtime. Efforts are underway to amp up our marketing initiatives. Scott and Devin met earlier this week to professionally record a new set of videos in which we are each personally talking about the company and product vision for Halo Platform and Block & Chain Games. These videos are in the editing room now so you can expect to see them in the next couple weeks. We are also in the process of updating our company website to make it more informative, exciting and simpler to navigate. Look for us to announce these updates in the near future. To see what the Halo Platform Team is working on at any given time, take a look at our Status Board. Did you know? There are detailed instructions, videos and walkthroughs of the Halo Platform on our wiki. Let us know if there is something you’d like to see there, and we will gladly add it!

    Halo Platform Weekly Newsletter Week of: Dec. 16 – Dec 22, 2018 Happy holidays from the Halo Platform team! 2018 has been a very active and exciting year for us and 2019 is shaping up to be even more eventful. We’re excited to show you what’s in store for the platform next year. Here’s what we’ve got going on as the New Year approaches: Halo Currency & Exchange Just as planned, the currency split occurred successfully last Tuesday evening. All Halo balances now reflect the 800:1 split ratio. Featherlite wallets and the HaloDEX were brought back online immediately after the split, with the Masternode system turned back on Thursday. We were excited to bring a handful of new features to each of these systems as they were brought back online. The coin split went smoothly and we’re very proud of our team for making it happen! A reminder, masternode rewards will begin again next week. New Releases It’s been a busy week and we’ve been fixing issues as fast as our community has been finding them. Last weekend, we addressed some issues causing connectivity problems on the chain. Users should find that our DAPPs now run a little faster. Summary of release content: Chrome Extension v1.2.3 Fixed account import error when importing from private key/phrase Fixed bug that sometimes allowed users to view recovery phrase without verifying it first and user would be unable to verify phrase Fixed UI issue where user appeared logged out after logging in when RPC requests fail Improves UX of dialog popups throughout extension to be more visually consistent Chrome Extension v1.2.4 Fixes issue causing errors with private key/seed phrase import Chrome Extension v1.2.5 UI Issue causing whitelist permissions to not show up in the UI of feather settings. Masternode DAPP v2.6.0 Remove locking accounts Fixed Monitoring view loading Fixed a bug when buying shares Added new Address Book view/feature Removed loading bar on Marketplace view Updated to match new v1.1 masternode smart contracts Wallet DAPP v1.2.0 UI updates to better match newer Halo DAPPs Removed account locking/unlocking abilities Auto add supported wrapper tokens Fixed a bug when attempting to show all the supported wrapper tokens in token select drop down Fixed a bug when renaming accounts from wallet We also released version 2.2.0 of Glo to support the coin split and brought the Featherlite Client up to parity with the extension. While we encourage everyone to use the extension, we will continue to maintain the client software for the time being. We’re continuing to focus on fixing HaloDEX bugs, rolling out the new version of the Halo Masternode system – which was released yesterday – and finishing the BTC wrapper for HaloDEX. We’re also working on a revamped version of the block explorer, which will be more informative and user friendly. Specific features will be announced as we get closer to release. There is a new tutorial video available on our YouTube page detailing how to install and setup the Chrome Browser Extension: https://youtu.be/RgEIOwqelAE Clearly, we’ve got a lot going. To see what the Halo Platform Team is working on at any given time, take a look at our Status Board. Business Update We’re pleased to announce we have been listed on the Delta app. The Halo Coin is listed at present with HaloDEX to follow shortly. Halo, today’s biggest gainer!
