- The product is designed to enhance the user experience and increase the value of Tezos.
The blockchain development company, Coase, launched by Tezos co-founder Kathleen Breitman will launch its first product, Emergents. Coase’s product is a collectible card game. The product is in its alpha stage and, as Coase’s CCO Brian David Marshall said, will be launched first on mobile devices. The launch is planned for April this year, according to David Marshall:
We are building a collectible blockchain card game, first in the mobile, with a hyper-efficient NFT digital market.
The first trading card game on Tezos
According to Coase’s motivation and philosophy document, the creators of Emergents were inspired by the card game Magic: The Gathering. Following this approach, Coase created some elements, such as the combat system that are similar to Magic’. However, Magic has a series of problems without an efficient solution.
As the Coase team states, there are alternatives that have preferred to focus on the less flattering aspects of Magic. Emergents seeks to solve Magic’s problems and create an economical and competitive system by taking advantage of the blockchain technology. Magic’s main problem is that players have to acquire the cards through packages.
Therefore, players end up buying packs that contain cards they already have. In contrast, Emergents will allow players to acquire the cards they want. Players will own the cards that are tokenized on the Tezos blockchain. In this way, the players will be able to trade the cards in Emergents. In addition, Coase will create a record of the cards that will be available in the Tezos blockchain. Cards that have been part of a winning strategy, for example, will increase in value.
Users who want to participate in the early version of the game can register through the website of Emergents. Coase will give players a set of basic cards that will be free and will allow players to start building their decks. Emergents players will use the token of Tezos, XTZ. In addition, they will have the option to use fiat currency to buy the cards.
However, it remains to be seen if Emergents will be an alternative that will be able to differentiate itself from games like Gods Unchained and Axie Infinity which run on the Ethereum blockchain. An alpha version of the game will be released next month, in April.
