Ever considered trying out a crypto trading card game? Blockchain trading cards are certainly growing in popularity, and blockchain trading card games are likely going to become a massive multi-million dollar industry. While there are several popular blockchain trading card games on the market currently, one of the most popular so far has been Gods Unchained.RSS Feed
The game, which appears similar to the popular Hearthstone game on the surface, has received $15 million in investments from a round of Series A financing. This funding was led by Naspers, who’s the largest shareholder of Tencent, currently the largest gaming company in the world), as well as Galaxy Digital and others. Clearly, there are plenty of people who are buying into blockchain trading card games having long lasting success.
The creator of the game, a company called Immutable, made the announcement of this funding on their Medium profile. They are major believers in the Ethereum blockchain holding the future of gaming. Apparently, plenty of other people agree with them. From my research, seeing the massive explosion in game development using Ethereum tokens, I would have to agree, as well.
Gods Unchained is already famous for having auctioned off the second most expensive trading card (digital or otherwise) of all time. This card, Hyperion, sold for over $60,000 worth of Ethereum! They’ve sold five million cards in just over a year. Plus, they even hired away the former director of Magic the Gathering: Arena - a game which not only doesn’t involve the blockchain, but doesn’t even allow in-game trading. It’s very possible Gods Unchained becomes the Magic the Gathering of blockchain trading card games.
Gods Unchained is free to play and currently in beta. You need to be invited to get in, but if you're interested in trying it you're welcome to use my beta key!
