Unique players shot up 6,961% in 30 days
Chainmonsters, the Flow-based MMORPG monster game by B-Side Games, has recorded a remarkable performance over the past thirty days. The number of unique active wallets interacting with the platform rose 6,961%, reaching more than 5,000 user wallets.
Chainmonsters is an MMORPG on the Flow blockchain, inspired by Pokémon. Players can find items and capture monsters, and then use these monsters to create a strong team. As more users flocked to try out the Alpha version of the game, transactions processed by the platform also skyrocketed, increasing by more than 4,049%.
Chainmonsters is still testing out gameplay and designs through its Alpha version. For the moment, players can join the Alpha version if they purchase an access key, the cheapest of which sells for around $250 at the time of writing. Despite the entry barrier, Chainmonsters has seen an influx of activity in the past couple of weeks.
One of the main reasons behind this boost is the launch of the official in-house marketplace, which happened on August 13th. In the marketplace, players get the opportunity to purchase and sell in-game assets like Mint Tokens, fossils, berries, and pearls. The Chainmonsters community had been expecting this update for quite some time. Considering this, it is no surprise that activity for both the platform and the marketplace went through the roof with the official launch.
According to Chaimonster statistics, just in the past 24 hours, the marketplace hosted 890 sales, generating upwards of $41,000 in volume. These are remarkable results for a game that is still in its closed alpha phase of development.
Importantly, the new marketplace is completely powered by Blocto, one of the biggest names on the Flow blockchain. To interact with the Chainmonsters marketplace, players need to create a Blocto Wallet account and connect with it. This is an important integration for Chainmonsters, as Blocto Wallet offers built-in token swapping services, allowing players to switch from one asset to another quickly. Last but not least, all in-game rewards go to the registered Flow and Blocto Wallet account. This way players have full control over their NFTs.
The Blocto-powered marketplace played a huge role in the game’s stellar performance over the past thirty days. Not to mention that Blocto Wallet is completely mobile-based. This allows players to view their assets even when on the go. If you want to learn more about installing and using Blocto Wallet, check out this article.
A second significant contributing factor for the recent uptick in users of the Chainmonsters platform is the Alpha-6 update. While the game has been through several major updates so far, Alpha-6 is the most groundbreaking one.
Before the update, Chainmonsters presented a 2D playing environment with somewhat limited functionality. With Alpha-6, the game is completely revamped. The team introduced a 3D gameplay and a much more realistic feel to the game mechanics.
This was a major improvement for Chainmonsters players. Most importantly, it brought them one step closer to the final feel and look of the game. Alpha-6 is the last update before Chainmonsters Beta launches. Aside from the purely visual side of things, Alpha-6 also brings players several major gameplay improvements.
The latest update introduces the use of a “Replicator”, which allows players to capture wild Chainmons. Additionally, players will get the opportunity to purchase upgrades for their already existing Chainmons through the marketplace. Upgrades include boosts to already existing abilities and additional traits for Chainmon characters.
Chainmonsters is a much-anticipated project that has been in development for over three years now. With the launch of the official marketplace and the Alpha-6 update, B-Side Games is on the final stretch to launch their game officially. DappRadar will continue monitoring the project’s development as it launches into beta later this year, so stay tuned.
