At an online event hosted by the Litecoin Foundation on September 15, Charlie Lee, creator of Litecoin (LTC) and CipSoft CEO Stephen Vogler announced the launch of LiteBringer, a fictional RPG powered by Litecoin. blockchain.
“This is the first major game to use the Litecoin blockchain in all its interactions,” said Lee.
Fogler stated that the game is completely decentralized, which means that all users must run a Litecoin node to be able to play. He also noted that access is entirely up to players who have at least some Litecoin. The game is said to contain a “Litecoin Crane” that can allow some users to get some Litecoin for free if they do not want or can not transfer their ownership.
“Every move in the game is a transaction on the Litecoin blockchain that creates value,” Fogler said. “If you’re a good player, LiteBringer lives up to its name and can even give you some Litecoin.”
All weapons, characters and items in LiteBringer are stored on the LTC blockchain, according to Fogler. He assured viewers that the technology is “completely secure and decentralized” as private keys were never shared. CipSoft is said to have chosen the LTC blockchain due to its popularity and the fact that it has low transaction fees, “less than one cent per transaction.”
CipSoft’s appearance in a blockchain RPG is not the first time a blockchain or crypto company sees the potential for players to accelerate adoption. In May, Atari announced that it had partnered with the Litecoin Foundation to allow players to pay for the future computer video system. Infinite Fleet, an online cryptocurrency game, is currently led by Samson Moe, Chief Strategy Officer at Blockstream.
“Blockchain technology has enormous potential for online gaming in general,” Fogler said. “I think sooner or later there will be games for every popular blockchain.”
