Good news for gamers and blockchain enthusiasts. Earlier this week, CryptoMonsters was successfully launched.
The peculiar app offers users a set of collectible figures with concepts and features similar to other famous games like crypto kitties, but with the difference that instead of running on the Ethereum network, the CryptoMonsters will “live” on the Litecoin Blockchain.
The game is about evolving a monster through various actions that will be recorded in the blockchain from its birth to its death. The Game’s official website explains its concept in a simple but exciting way:
“This is a new type of game based on the Litecoin blockchain technology. It represents a virtual world, inhabited by CryptoMonsters, which are constantly evolving and interacting with each other.!”
During its first stage, the game allowed early users to get a free monster, however, once the game was released, the number of monsters available ran out. Users must purchase one of the monsters available on the market, which are worth approximately $500 to $500 depending on a multitude of factors such as rarity, strength, level, etc.
Monsters have a level ranging from 1 to 200. Currently, there are no top-level monsters because of how young the game is, however, it won’t be long before users see highly evolved monsters once the game becomes more mature and active.
Players have the option to split their monster (getting 2 lower level monsters) or to mature and evolve their creature to level it up.
Naturally, as in many similar games, evolution involves complex and risky tasks such as taking on other monsters in combat. Should a monster win the fight, it will increase its level, of course, it will also lose it if it is not victorious in battle.
Each monster acquires part of the stats of the loser. If a monster falls below level 0.2, it dies, or as the game says, “ascends to crypto monster paradise” to meet its creator: CryptoGod.
The game has been a complete success. According to CryptoMonsters’ Official Twitter, the platform registers a number of 2.3 new users per second, which is a sample of its potential to become Litecoin’s Cryptokitties.
