Crypto and Dragons and Worldwide Asset eXchange™(WAX) have announced that the company’s Crypto Collectibles™ will be available on OPSkins™, a marketplace for online video game assets, and will be tradable with WAX Tokens, Bitcoin, ETH, US dollars, Euros and dozens of other currencies.

The decentralized application is built on the Ethereum blockchain. Crypto and Dragons is a competitive decentralized game in which players can collect and train monsters to build monster armies. Players can then battle for dungeon ownership against other players. When players rule dungeons, they can earn more tokens, monsters, and Ethereum. Crypto and Dragons is designed so that players can earn profits from collecting rare monsters and owning dungeons. These monsters, which can be bought and sold in the marketplace, are solely owned by the user and cannot be replicated, taken away or destroyed. The presale will end on the 31st of May and the game will launch in June.

Founder and Core Developer of Crypto and Dragons, Hiroki Ikeda commented: “People expect decentralized games to have rich content, but players also want to profit from decentralized games as well. We believe decentralized games should be profitable, efficient, and most of all, fun. At Crypto and Dragons we focus on three main ideas: providing fun and balanced game mechanics, an efficient use of the players time (ie: no time-consuming levelling up) and maintaining the value of player’s game assets.”

With the integration of Crypto and Dragons’ in-game assets onto the OPSkins platform, WAX Tokens gain additional utility and more players are incentivized to join the ecosystem. Crypto and Dragons is the latest game based on non-fungible tokens to be added to OPSkins and whose in-game virtual assets are tradable with WAX Tokens. The first non-fungible token was CryptoKitties in December 2017, and there are more to come. OPSkins experiences over two million weekly transactions on its platform, has millions of active customers, adds 200,000 new users each month and offers over five million items available for purchase using WAX. WAX allows anyone to create a virtual goods marketplace, on-boarding millions of gamers to the growing cryptocurrency space.

Malcolm CasSelle, CIO of OPSkins and President of WAX, stated: “The inception of blockchain-based games and collectibles presents a new opportunity for the crypto community to get involved, and game developers are taking notice. As the popularity of blockchain games and Crypto Collectibles grows, so does the need for a trustworthy marketplace, which is where WAX and OPSkins come in. Integrating Crypto and Dragons to that ecosystem is an exciting move for us and for the blockchain-based gaming community as a whole.”
