OmiseGO (OMG) has officially launched its first dApp called the “Plasma Dog”, one of the innovative blockchain games running on OMG’s platform.
Plasma Dog is a 2D game developed by Hoard, a group that develops cryptocurrencies in video games, and it has some similarities with Warner Bros Super Mario classics. Plasma dog has an efficient PoC (Proof of concept) system which functions at the back-end of the game through the utilization of Plasma MVP.
The game was announced officially on the 1st of November, 2018 at the Devcon4 conference held in Prague, Czech Republic and it can be played for free.
The new 2D game makes use of cryptocurrency terminologies as characters within the game. The antagonist is known as node collusion, invalid blocks, double spends, faulty child chains etc. The currency spent within the game is called Unspent Transaction Output (UTXO).
One of the merits of the system is that Plasma MVP carries out cheap transactions and an improved output without the need for sacrificing security.
While playing the game, users who don’t lose their lives will earn the UTXO token. At the same time, players can pick up the UTXO token in-game; when this happens, the in-game currency is sent to the player’s wallet via the server.
In essence, what this means is that the UTXO tokens earned in-game, get added to your wallet and you can do whatever you want with it.
Chris Robinson, who is Hoard’s community manager was delighted with the features of the Plasma Dog game, said, “True ownership is enabled when players have full control of the content of their gaming experience, including their avatars, XP & skills, in-game items, maps, and other customizations. If a player has true ownership of these items, they are free to conduct all types of commerce with them — buy, sell, share, rent, trade, etc on both primary and secondary markets. Players should even be free to import their items from one game into another.”
