War Riders is a next-generation, post-apocalyptic MMO strategy game of mining (collecting) cryptocurrency and blowing up cars.
The game revolutionizes blockchain asset trading by introducing the first-ever, in-game item marketplace truly owned by its users. War Riders are reimagining the nature of MMO gaming by providing a platform where users rest assure their hard-earned loot crates and virtual gold/coins are safe.
At the heart of this is Benzene (BZN) — the only form of payment left to trade in the Wasteland. Players discover BZN waypoints in the Wasteland and fill up their tanks with the valuable resource. In order to redeem BZN, the players have to bring what they’ve collected back to their garages without being shamelessly robbed on the way home. Benzene will be used to buy better guns, additional garage spaces, armor, nitro-boost, and it can also be exchanged for other virtual currencies.
The purpose of the game is to become the most powerful army in the Wasteland. Strong armies are able to provide protection to newbies for payment; this creates a steady revenue stream for the owner of the army. The more vehicles and garages you own, the stronger your position is in the game.
The game starts when players assemble their very own post-apocalyptic vehicles and prepare for war. Every vehicle represents a unique, immutable piece of record on the public blockchain. Vehicles, guns and other assets may be traded between players using our native War Riders marketplace or any other marketplaces.
- hybrid chain
- NFT ownership/marketplace
- deflationary game currency
- multiple ways to earn from game
Ethereum has proven its reliability over 4 years of invulnerable operation, flawless performance, and decentralization.
WarRiders will incorporate a side-chain enforced by the Ethereum main-net for maximum security. Why the need for a side chain? In December 2017, CryptoKitties drastically slowed down the Ethereum network because people were breeding virtual cats on the main Ethereum blockchain. The transactions were slow and expensive. In October 2019, more congestion ensued when gambling platform Fairwin, spent more than 51% of all gas used to process transactions on the entire Ethereum blockchain.
These occurrences pointed out very significant scalability issues within the Ethereum network. A game that requires thousands of transactions per second is simply impossible and economically unviable to build using the current implementation. Because of this, WarRiders has invested significant resources into testing the hybrid chain solution with a dedicated game side chain.
Nonfungible tokens or NFTs have become increasingly more popular recently. The appeal of NFTs is their immutable characteristics and total user ownership. They are basically digital pieces of art in a sense. Who wouldn’t want to own a digital Mona Lisa? Like the Mona Lisa, nonfungible tokens can be sold at auction at many marketplaces, which gives the owner even more flexibility on what they want to do with their tokens. WarRiders has taken notice of this adoption, incorporating them to allow players to truly earn unique and limited rewards that no one can take away!
Benzene(BZN) is an ERC-20 token that can be used for all purchases in game. BZN and ETH can be used for vehicle upgrades, weapon upgrades, and overall customization. 30% of all BZN mined is burned and the rest is sent back to the mining pool, sounds like a recipe for a great token ecosystem. Because BZN has 18 decimal places, who knows how much BZN will be worth on the open market in the future.
BZN mining is by far, the biggest way to earn in the wasteland, however theres 2 other ways! The second one I briefly talked about is auctioning your NFTS on third party marketplaces. You could become King/Queen of the wasteland by buying all rarest and most unique vehicles and controlling the market. The most expensive Warriders vehicle sold for over $1,500! The third way to Earn in the wasteland is to rent out your garage to other players seeking refuge from BZN thieves. Players agree on a contract that is paid in BZN. Each vehicle comes with a garage so the more vehicles you own the more garages you can rent!
In closing, I am happy to have come across this game and look forward to blowing up cars and mining some precious BZN in the wasteland. Check out the useful links below to get started or for more information!
