Blockchain-based gaming platform Enjin (ENJ) has partnered with SwissBorg for a cross-platform gaming competition with a total prize of $50,000. The event will see players competing across eight different titles in a “Ready Player One” style contest.
Blockchain is becoming an integral part of the ongoing developments in the gaming industry. Stakeholders say the novel tech provides players with the opportunity to passport value from game environments to financial markets thus providing a platform for tokenizing the entertainment value of these games.
Enjin Cyborg Quest will Involve Eight Games
Enjin announced the news of its partnership with SwissBorg via a press release shared with Blockonomi on Wednesday (July 29, 2020). Dubbed “Cyborg Quest,” Enjin and SwissBorg have created a cross-platform gaming contest across eight different titles which will commence on August 3, 2020.
According to the press statement, the gaming contest will involve titles such as Bitcoin Hodler, Grasshopper Farm, Min-Mins, and Lost Relics. The other four games in the competition include Forest Knight, Kingdom Karnage, MyMeta Minecraft, and The Six Dragons.
Players who finish the first seven games will receive Cyborg; an NFT token developed by SwissBorg. Participants will have to piece the tokens together to gain access to Lost Relic which is the final game in the cross-platform contest.
Commenting on the competition, Maxim Blagov, CEO of Enjin remarked:
“This is the first of many cross-game events that will occur thanks to our blockchain technology. We have been making tools that gamers love for over 10 years, and as we push the envelope once again, we are taking another step toward a digital world in which everyday people can live their lives and find their fortune.”
According to an Enjin blog post on the Cyborg Quest, 16 main prize winners are expected to emerge from the gaming contest. The winners will receive SwissBorg premium account tokens valued at $50,000.
