SpacePirate Games, creators of Age of Rust, a picturesque role-playing adventure game, has announced their adoption of Enjin Coin’s platform to create and manage in-game ERC-1155 tokens. Featuring more than 650,000m2of in-game landscape to explore, Age of Rust implements creative challenges and puzzles with a prize pool of over 24 Bitcoin (BTC) hidden throughout the game.

Age of Rust is the first ever game with plans to implement a blockchain-based peer-to-peer rental market. By utilizing Enjin Coin’s smart contracts, SpacePirate will enable in-game asset rentals between players. Rented items will temporarily move from the lessor’s blockchain address to the lessee’s and will be returned once the rental period has ended. This will strengthen Age of Rust’s unique community-driven gameplay by driving player interaction while also providing SpacePirate an organic source of revenue in the form of transaction fees. In this mutually beneficial rental scheme, lessors will also earn rental fees, while lessees will gain access to their desired assets.

One of the industry’s most highly anticipated blockchain games, Age of Rust has reached later development stages and is expected to launch in late 2019 after nearly two years of production. SpacePirate has already released a text-adventure version of Age of Rust, with a prize pool of 4 BTC lying behind a series of complex puzzles in the online beta version.

Age of Rust’s economy runs on an in-game currency called “Rustbits.” Rustbits will be migrated to ERC-1155 tokens and currently have a drastically fluctuating market cap that at times reaches up to $17 million. The game’s collectible blockchain cards, called “Rustchain cards,” are also already available. These cards currently allow access to game content and clues for puzzles but will eventually impact your character, gameplay, and storyline.

Age of Rust takes place in a dystopian future where the collapse of society has led to the end of all technological advancement. With no ability to advance or maintain existing infrastructure, everything is left to deteriorate and rust. Mech and powerful AI-enabled machines have turned against humans to steal and plunder for survival.

Players will explore abandoned space stations, mysterious caverns, and lost worlds, fighting other players, rogue machines, and hostile environments while solving complex puzzles along the way. The game is highly community-driven, with clues and secrets delivered through the Age of Rust Discord channel. As with all great open world games, you can choose to play solo or work with a team. This rich community-based gameplay has also inspired separate Discord channels for “solvers” to work together on puzzles and quests.

SpacePirate is currently working on Chapter 1 of the game, slated to offer more than 40 hours of gameplay. A total of six chapters will be available to play as they are released, which speaks to the immense scale of Age of Rust’s gaming universe.

Just like many other cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin, as well as Litecoin, currently sit in vitality as much as the market is concerned. Will Bitcoin and Litecoin recover as much as many have been speculating? Apparently, it is hard to tell how the investors will react to all these recent events.

When looking at the current trend of the volatility of Litecoin and bitcoin prices in US dollars, it is quite clear to note that there is a decrease in volatility. The price of bitcoin stands at $6,574 with a slight change (24h) of +0.06%. On the other hand, Litecoin is trading at $53.94 with a difference (24h) of -1.45% at the press time. Basically, at the moment there isn’t a significant downward movement between the two cryptocurrencies.

Spectators Never Fail to Give Reasons

As always many spectators will seek to give some reasons for the trends and some think that the downward move is just a manipulation by some small group so that they can outscore the stock market. Perhaps, it is a bear market, and with the volatility of the coins being technically low, it means it is cheaper, which is definitely better.

The Real Meaning

What the trends literally mean is that there is an accountable resistance with both Bitcoin and Litecoin contrary to the expectations of many who were anticipating at least some positive movement after the sharp market rise last week.

However, that doesn’t mean that…

The online world of business is undeniably changing. But, have we seen its full extent yet? Perhaps the answer lies with the blockchain technology. Some studies point out that with blockchain (like Ripple, and of course, other similar ones like Stellar or the ones that might come to the party) integration by the banks, they will be able to realize significant savings.

The banks will enjoy cost reductions not only in their payment processing as well as reconciliation alongside compliance and treasury operations.

DZ Bank AG Considering Ripple Interledger Protocol

DZ Bank is one of the most talked after bank in Germany. It is the second largest bank in the country by asset size as well as the central institution. The bank functions as both a central institution as well as corporate and investment bank.

Concerning potential Ripple Interledger protocol integration, the bank has listed a couple of slides in their recent report “blockchain(s) and potential impacts on reconciliation.” It is not rocket science to what that may mean just because the protocol is all about cross-border transactions.

In the past couple of decades, some aspects of Japanese culture have begun to spread like wildfire through the rest of the world. Foremost among them is the fascinating and thought-provoking world of Japanese comics and animation.

At the same time, it’s become increasingly popular for fans to interact with each other and express their enthusiasm for manga and anime through cosplay, where people dress up as their favorite fictional characters or even create their own.

In fact, cosplay has grown to be a jaw-dropping $45 billion industry, with no signs of slowing down anytime soon. However, the industry and its participants aren’t without problems.

At the top of the list of issues holding the cosplay industry back are those associated with copyright and revenue sharing. As with most any global industry, there is inefficiency due to language barriers, different currencies, and varying regulatory guidelines for intellectual property.

So, how can blockchain technology help? There are a handful of answers to that question, actually. A few are:

  • An immutable blockchain can be used to store records such that there is no longer any doubt about a piece of content’s original creator.
  • A blockchain can securely store and track user’s digital IDs in order to discourage harassment and other nastiness that prevails on online media forums.
