    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

    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!
