World of Ether Nears Half Million Dollar Mark in First 48 Hours; Said to Rival Top Ethereum-Based Games
World of Ether brings Pokémon style gameplay to the Ethereum blockchain; presale validates proof of need.
World of Ether, also called WoE, takes the smash hit game, CryptoKitties, to the next level. CryptoKitties sold over $20,000,000 in digital cats over the course of its one month reign, illustrating the demand for gamified crypto assets.
While CryptoKitties was the first to break into the mainstream, it was criticized for having shallow game mechanics, leaving much room for improvement. Breeding cats didn't offer any real sense of progression, as features did not provide any benefits; and the game was additionally rebuked for not being properly decentralized. The value of cats was continually reduced as the development team flooded the marketplace with their own "Gen 0" kitties.
World of Ether seeks to create a crypto gaming experience that remedies the problems CryptoKitties was said to have.
In WoE's full game, Monsters can battle, breed, and be sold for ETH to other players. Players level up by battling, and with level increases, breed rarer and stronger monsters.
Like all dApps, WoE relies on Ethereum smart contracts and is completely decentralized. Developers can't interfere with anything and supply and demand sets the price of all monsters. The game can be thought of as a decentralized p2p Pokémon with a marketplace that can yield real financial benefit.
World of Ether is founded by Alain Goldman, co-founder of the largest Ethereum meetup group in the world (link: https://www.meetup.com/
The group released World of Ether on Jan. 15, 2018. Just four days later, they began scaling by recruiting a community manager and a brand ambassador.
At its current presale stage, users buy eggs which they can hatch when the game launches.
Eggs rise in price by .00035 ETH with each purchase. The first egg was 0 ETH and now a single digital monster egg has risen to 0.5215 ETH in price, or about $600.
The full version of World of Ether will be released Q1, 2018. With so many weeks left until launch, it's possible egg prices will continue rise by a dramatic amount.
World of Ether is translated into Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Russian, Spanish, and French.
