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

Map of Crimson Waste
The Crimson Waste is a large desert area with deep red dunes, extreme temperatures and little water. From the rocks to the plants, nearly everything in this environment is toxic. The surface of Crimson Waste, known as Cinder, hosts a sandstorm that envelops the sky. However, many tunnel networks exist beneath this landscape, leading to areas vastly different from the hot, desolate surface.
Low visibility makes the surface difficult

Vithraven’s Reawakening has begun. Vithraven’s Reawakening is a limited time event that allows owners of Serendale Gen0 heroes to “reroll” some of their Hero’s genes.
Serendale Gen0 holders will be given an opportunity to reroll some of their genes, with the new Crystalvale genes being possible options. Hero owners may choose to reroll Game Gen
The condition is one of the personal attributes of a player and it refers to physical status, which decreases with playing but can be recovered over time.
As we launch the first play-and-earn rewards in MetaSoccer, we are implementing Player Condition and Exhaustion, mimicking the physical world, so players get tired and cannot take part in unlimited matches.
If you look at the game now, all your players are at 100% Condition. This is about to change.
May the peace of Gaia comfort you! We bring tales of the dev team’s travails this week, in another edition of the DeFi Kingdoms Dev Update!
The Front-end Team spent the latter half of last week squashing bugs and cleaning up mobile views after the gen0 launch, and started this week by bringing Vithraven’s Awakening, aka the gen0 re-roll, to a Portal near you. At the time of writing, almost 900 gen0’s have had their genes re-rolled. This event helps ensure that appearance, class, and subclas

Guilds — families or governing bodies?
The phenomenon of human tribalism is a greatly interesting one. Since our caveman days, the evolution of humanity has been marked by powerful competition amongst groups and alliances. From the rise and fall of empires to the formation of labour unions, it is clear that our propensity for alliances has shaped the landscape of our world tremendously. This much is already evident within the Web3 space.

Patch Notes Update — May 11, 2022
Good release day, Kingdom!
If you stop by the Portal zone in Serendale to take a quick break from the hustle and grind, you’ll notice a small camp set up with a soft crackling fire and a collection of half-carved stones with strange symbols etched on their faces.

46 — Regions. Abyssal Basin
The Obelisk stands inside a wet marshland.
The light shines westward, a tunnel cut through a thick forest. The energy of the Obelisk has carved a wide path. The overhang is yet to grow back as if fearful of reprise.
Surrounding the Obelisk is a soaking wet grassland that leads into the different areas of the region. As with all regions, the Obelisk feels purposefully placed at the region’s centre.
Imagine having a machine that prints money — we’d all be rolling in riches! Alas, as adults we realize that this dream we had as children is simply not feasible, due to the principle of inflation. When the money in circulation increases, the cost of goods and services increases accordingly. The principle that a burgeoning money supply causes high inflation is one of the basic laws of economics.
The dream-like machine often appears to take the shape of Play2Earn blockchain

Hi Unicorn Fam!
As game dynamics change, features must also be redesigned to promote continued utility. During the early stages of development Golden Tickets were designed to simply be an amplifier for loot box rewards. Given that Lootboxes and Golden Tickets won’t be a “normal” item that players obtain / use on a regular cadence, our Design Team has been hard at work determining ways to separate the two items.
We are excited to now share the new functionality for Golden Tickets!
We’ve deployed important updates to the Axie Infinity Marketplace!
