In 2021, Blockchain Gaming swept the world. Tokenized assets (both NFT, and digital currencies) were a new phenomenon begging for product/market fit, and found it within a niche ripe for disruption. Previously, gamers traded their time and money for entertainment, but now new startups were moving the hurdle of money over to the reward side of the equation. Vast communities in Asia, India, South America embraced this idea, many earning more than their full time jobs by playing games a few hours a
Many changes are currently being planned to establish a stronger foundation for Crabada. These changes aim to create a sustainable and long-term future for the Crabada game ecosystem, by improving current gameplay and integrating more new and exciting experiences that players can enjoy.
Breeding v2 — Recalibration of Breeding Formula
As part of the transition toward a Material-based economy, we will be making the following adjustments to Breeding:
50. Immutable X deep-dive — Part 1: Security with speed
Our number one priority is ensuring that our gamers can safely own and trade their in-game assets. Setting our game on Immutable X’s L2 protocol lets us provide that security while maintaining near-instant transaction speeds.

NFTs — the bricks in the walls of Web3
An Introduction to NFTs: Part 1
In 2021, the usage of the word NFT has been widespread across the vast landscape of the Internet. It is hard to find a young person who is unaware of this term.
Headlines of digital monkey drawings selling for millions span the articles shared on Facebook — oh-so-wild times indeed!
It is thus understandable that NFTs are often mentioned in confused breaths or statements that condemn and cast doubt on

Look and Feel
Halycon Sea is a vast land-locked area of coral reef and lake domain with clear water that only reaches knee height across the whole area. Various shell-like formations, coral and plants protrude from the surface. The Halcyon Sea has many remarkable features and houses enormous coral structures. Much of the vegetation here is brightly coloured, and vivid neon glow-in-the-dark plants and bacteria light up the area at night. In a
As the largest Discord in Web3, it’s important that our Discord roles add flavor and life to the various roles in our community.
