  5. BLOCK & CHAIN GAME STUDIOS LAUNCHES BLOCKFIGHT DICE ROLLING BATTLE GAME FIRST RELEASE FOR NEW PLATFORM February 27, 2019 – Block and Chain Game Studios (https://blockandchain.games/) is pleased to announce the public release of Blockfight - an exciting creature-centered dice battle game built using blockchain technology. This visually immersive and technologically cutting-edge battle game is the first title published by Block and Chain Game Studios, an up-and-coming blockchain gaming platform. Blockfight is an immersive online gaming experience where players battle grotesque monsters, displayed in high-res 3D. The beasts take massive hits all based on the roll of the dice, which rely on blockchain technology to ensure truly random and provably fair results. Just select your character and how much you want to risk on the fight and your characters will battle it out to the bitter end. The creatures battle for guts, glory, and valuable rewards. Beat them all and fill your trophy room – and your digital coin wallet! Players can play completely free to test the waters, thanks to a generous allotment of in-game coins provided by Block and Chain. Users who want a bigger thrill will undoubtedly want to try their luck with a favorite cryptocurrency, such as Ethereum and HALO. Blockfight is free-to-play and can be accessed directly on the web: https://www.blockfight.com/ Blockfight may be a new title from Block and Chain Game Studios, but it’s built on top of blockchain technology that is well-established. This is possible due to Block and Chain Game Studios’ partnership with Halo Platform, which has built some of the most robust and reliable blockchain technology available today. This cutting-edge platform will make gameplay and cryptocurrency flows on Block and Chain’s platform nearly seamless. If you’re a developer and have your own crypto-based experience you’re wanting to show the world, we suggest you roll the dice around in Blockfight a few times just to see how easy and seamless it is to integrate with the Halo Platform. Block and Chain Game Studios is a division of the Halo Platform aimed at encouraging the development of blockchain gaming and introducing the gaming community to the benefits of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.

  11. Halo Platform Roadmap Update Feb. 15, 2019 Now that we’re well into 2019, we want to take a moment to sum up our deliveries in 2018 and share our 2019 roadmap with you. The information below is not exhaustive by any means, but it’s a way for new and old community members alike to see that we’re continuing to make great progress and that Halo Platform is in it for the long haul! Please note, the following list is not exhaustive and is subject to change, based on the needs of our community. What we delivered in 2018 Blockchain - Our 5000 TPS consensus-driven chain, which powers everything on our platform, including our own cryptocurrency. Feather - The client software with which users can access our diverse array of products. Extension - For Chrome browsers, which provides quick and easy access to your wallet and all applications in our platform. This is your one-stop-shop to manage and trade your currency. Wallet - Secure storage for your HALO coin. Masternodes - Quick and simple to set up and maintain. Users can buy whole or partial masternodes. Currency minted on the Halo blockchain and service fees are pooled and distributed to masternode holders. HaloDEX - Decentralized Exchange for instant trades across an array of supported coins for quick and easy transactions. Coin Split - In December, we conducted an 800:1 split of our coin to add more value and appeal for current and prospective users. AWS Partnership - In December we became an official partner of AWS. Our plan for 2019 We have a lot planned for 2019 and much of the following are already well underway. It is shaping up to be an exciting year for Halo Platform: Real time Data System - We are developing our world class real time data platform that rivals others in the pub/sub data market. This is the foundation of several products we are building, and as such it will be one of our first products released this year. Several benefits for developers and community members will be realized from this, such as block data delivered directly to extensions, contract event data delivered to dapps or back ends without the need to run your own node, real time exchange data for building your own data reports and dashboards, as well as data aggregations from other chains and systems being offered for free to the community. We will also release this as a service for other blockchain developers. All service fees from this software as a service would contribute to masternode pools and rewards. Chat system - Built on top of our real time data system, you will see the initial release of our chat and community system. This system will be targeted to large and small communities alike, with topic systems, chat systems, and community interactions being at the front of the user experience. Since it is built on top of our realtime data system, communities will be able to tap into the open data and utilize live data feeds for coins and data of their choice. Masternodes - You will see changes coming to masternodes that will improve user experience in the dapp. The dapp will be realtime fast, and include an improved marketplace. This year we plan to extend the masternode system to allow for multi asset payouts. This means you will be able to receive BTC, ETH, and other coins/tokens that are gained in service fees across our platform. The capacity to allow approved native platform project airdrops will be added along with multi coin rewards. With one masternode you will be able to generate a diverse portfolio. Extension - We plan to support multiple browsers this year, expanding support to Brave, Firefox and possibly Safari. We also plan to expand current send functionality in the extension to allow sending of supported tokens. As we verify more dapps on the network from 3rd party developers, we plan to add a catalog of verified dapps in an effort to give exposure to 3rd party developers. Wallet - Many new features will come to the wallet this year. The ability to easily add and interact with smart contracts and tokens is coming as well as a revamped UI. There are also plans to add native coin support (currently sending Halo wrapped coins is available only if manually added). HaloDEX - The DEX is going to see many new coin and token additions across many different chains. The new backend is being integrated now for release in our upcoming sprint. Improved history tracking and the possibility to export trades and transfers will come as well as different types of trading, such as market trading and others. HaloX - Trade a wide variety of financial products on our low latency Centralized Exchange. An exchange designed for both beginner and professional traders, featuring peer-to-peer Margin Trading, automated Risk Management, a rich User Interface and a wide variety of advanced order types. Secured by an intricate cold-storage mechanism and government grade encryption where needed, to ensure safeguarding of funds from deposit to withdrawal. Of course, the Block and Chain Games team is also very busy this year. The products below are just some of the games we plan to deliver. Follow us in social media or our forums to receive the latest updates and new game announcements. Blockfight - Blockfight is a visceral online gaming experience, where players pit monstrous behemoths against each other in high-res 3D environments as the dice roll. The fun doesn’t stop at launch, though. Through the year, we will introduce new monsters to fight, new arenas and new dice to roll. And after that, we are going to develop a PvP game where players can equip their creatures with gear and battle each other! Draggin’ Dragons - Breed, Hatch and Trade rare and powerful dragons. Send your Dragons into Speed and Battle races where they can level up their skills. Draggin’ Dragons is launching in 3 phases, beginning with open beta featuring speed races where you can wager and win. Players can buy a dragon and earn a portion of all their winnings! The second phase introduces breeding and battle dragons, which includes RPG elements and an in-game auction house, where players can trade and sell with one another. The 3rd phase will feature special events, where live races will occur and players can watch and participate in realtime! Game Partner Platform - Block and Chain doesn’t just make games. We empower indie developers to easily integrate their games into our system. We have developed API’s for player authorization, smart contracts for interfacing into the Halo Platform blockchain (which is fast enough for realtime gaming!), and wallet integration. These are just a few of the benefits our platform provides. All partner games are included in Player Central, where they are featured and cross promoted within the platform. The platform is live now and we will continue to build onto our stack of SDK’s and other tools throughout the year. Player Central - 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. As you can see, we have a lot in store for 2019 and look forward to bringing these great products and systems to our community!

  12. Block & Chain Game Studios Weekly Wrap Up February 8, 2019 Blockfight Update As we were working to integrate Ethereum into The Cage this week, we encountered a bug in the core Web3 code. Web3 1.0 beta has an issue in parsing bytes32 parameters for sending to Smart Contracts. Since we use bytes32 to save gas, this obviously became a problem. And given the rather cryptic error, it was quite a pain to track down what the culprit actually was. The Web3 maintainers have been made aware, as it has a very broad impact. Maybe we should get a commission for our services... Fortunately, the team was able to work around the issue and we’re performing our final tests on the system. This does mean Blockfight will come out next week, however. We will keep you posted on our progress. As mentioned last week, we are going to run an incentivized launch campaign once we’re ready to go: And as a “Thank You” for your patience and support as we get ready to launch, we will be upping our weekly giveaway amounts as follows: 20,000 Halo per week grand prize 3 Limited edition t-shirts 6 Sets of exclusive in-game dice This will provide a greater opportunity for more winners across the 4 week campaign. Draggin’ Dragons Update This week, we introduced the next Speed Dragon, Dveen (who may or may not be named after our Head of Games): Our next major milestone is coming up! We will be sending out a request for closed Beta participants sometime in the next two weeks. Like our closed Beta for Blockfight, players will have an opportunity to weigh in on the game and help us curate our Draggin’ Dragons feature roadmap. Stay tuned for your chance to participate in this limited time sneak peek! Join The Block & Chain Community! Forums Website Youtube Facebook Instagram Twitter Reddit LinkedIn It’s coming...

  15. Blockchain technology and virtual reality (“VR”) are a great match together as they work hand-in-hand to create an enhanced experience for gamers. Recently, Apple’s app store featured the first blockchain-based augmented reality game, Augmentors. The development of blockchain-based games is helping to bring blockchain technology and cryptocurrency mainstream, and the pace of adoption is accelerating as gaming companies are finding better applications of blockchain tech in gaming. Merging VR and Blockchain Tech Augmentors allows players to own creatures called Augmentors, which have their own unique characteristics and skills. The game’s founders, Michael Deon and Kyle Haffenden, brought the idea to Shark Tank South Africa in 2016 where they were able to obtain an investor, Vinny Lingham. The game platform, which is based on Bitcoin, allows players to train and trade Augmentors within the game. One thing that makes Augmentors unique is that it relies on cryptocurrency and blockchain tech to create a more authentic VR experience. The game uses an in-game currency called Emeralds that run on the Bitcoin blockchain. Players can earn or purchase Emeralds, which can be exchanged with the cryptocurrency called Databits (DTB) and at a ratio of 1 DTB to 1000 Emeralds. Blockchain Technology and Virtual Reality: a Match Made in Heaven The gaming industry has come a long way since the 1970s. New technological innovations took us from the coin-operated arcade games of the past to modern MMORPGs complete with their own social and economic systems. Now, we’re looking at increasingly authentic and immersive gaming experiences coming from the marriage of blockchain tech and virtual reality. Virtual reality offers an amazingly realistic gaming experience. VR allows players to feel like they are really experiencing their own virtual world. And just like in the real world, good VR involves social and economic interactions as well as physical sensations. Virtual reality games are moving towards increasingly realistic interactions with the physical world. In the future, VR gaming experiences may allow players to create and maintain virtual assets that have value outside of the gaming experience. Blockchain technology has created a way for gamers to obtain and own assets in a VR experience that are secure. This could lead to a virtual economic system where players can buy, sell, and trade assets among each other in a trustless environment. Blockchain Tech’s VR Applications are Changing the Player Experience Cryptocurrency and blockchain tech are creating more immersive, and authentic gaming experiences by creating a more realistic virtual space in which players can interact with each other. The first Blockchain-based augmented virtual reality games are already stimulating awareness of blockchain technology’s many potential applications in the gaming industry. Blockchain technology can benefit a variety of games within the industry, but it’s still an emerging field. Block and Chain Game Studios is pleased to be able to offer a platform which supports VR game development for major game engines!
