EverdreamSoft: A Pioneer in the Integration and Use of Blockchain Tools in Gaming and Digital Assets

EverdreamSoft Review

Introduction

Blockchain technology has brought numerous innovations to the digital asset sphere in the short time of its inception. Thanks to its ever-evolving nature, many sectors including cryptocurrency, DeFi, NFTs, Metaverse, gaming have benefited and are still benefiting from it, impacting lives and businesses.

Blockchain gaming is the latest revolution that introduced the concept of Play-to-Earn models that enable players to earn while having fun, creating additional monetization routes for video games. Blockchain elements in these games are often based on the use of cryptocurrency of non-fungible tokens which players can buy, sell, or trade with other players.

According to Blockchain Game Alliance, blockchain gaming powered by Play-to-Earn is changing the game in the crypto space, with the number of Unique Active Wallets (UAW) linked to gaming dApps reaching 1.4 million by the end of 2021, accounting for over half of the total gaming sector’s overall activity. Meanwhile, in-game NFTs accounted for more than 20% of the overall $23 billion in NFT trade volume for the year.

Gaming NFTs accrued more than $4.5 billion in trading volume, representing 20% of the total NFT sales in 2021 while Play-to-Earn-based tokens were among the best-performing crypto assets. It is no surprise that investors and inventors are pushing their fortunes into blockchain-focused games and the infrastructure of the cryptocurrency economy.

EverdreamSoft (EDS), a Switzerland-based company pioneering the integration and use of blockchain tools in the domain of gaming and digital collectibles is one of the frontrunners of the blockchain gaming sector.

EverdreamSoft History and Notable Achievements

EverdreamSoft (EDS) is a Swiss-based firm with a full product line of backend blockchain products, a top mobile game, that started in 2010 as a game studio, founded by Shaban Shaame. EDS is seen as one of the earliest to integrate blockchain into the sphere of gaming and digital collectibles.

EverdreamSoft is a pioneer in the movement of “True Ownership” of digital goods with their mobile game “Spells of Genesis”. EverdreamSoft’s Crystal Suite is an integrated suite of tools for exploring, creating, sharing, and managing “Orbs” — rare digital things (art, game items, collectibles) tied to blockchain currency. Moreover, EDS is one of the Blockchain Game Alliance‘s original members (BGA).

EverdreamSoft has been fostering the integration and use of blockchain tools in the domain of gaming and digital collectibles since 2014. EDS has achieved major milestones in the last decade and some of them include launching “Moonga” in 2010, an online trading card game (TCG) that debuted as the first mobile game on the App Store. In the same year, Moonga was ranked number one Role Playing Game (RPG) in the Japanese App Store.

In 2015, EDS minted what is considered as the “original”, or “vintage” or “antique” NFTs. Similarly, it ran one of the first ICOs (was not referred to as ICO back then), raised 900 BTC which was worth around 300k USD.

Still on its array of achievements, in 2017 EDS released the first mobile game dubbed “Spells of Genesis”, using blockchain assets. The following year, it introduced the “blockchainization” feature in an attempt to move in-game assets to the blockchain.

2019 came bearing good fortune for EDS as it emerged the winner of the Klatyn (Korean blockchain by Kakao) hackathon. 2020 marked the start of EDS’ collaboration with Polkadot and also commenced working on the NFT strategy for Kusama.

EverdreamSoft Features

EverdreamSoft (EDS) is the company and team behind the products such as Spells of Genesis (SoG), Orb Explorer, Casa Tookan Wallet, and other products from EverdreamSoft Crystal Suite. While the above-mentioned have been launched and are fully operational, EDS  is set to launch the Orb Creator, and Orb Market platforms soon.

Spells of Genesis

Spells of Genesis (SoG) is a multi-chain blockchain mobile game first of its kind, currently compatible with Ethereum, Bitcoin, and Klaytn blockchains. SoG mixes the functionality of a Trading Card Game (TCG) with the point-and-shoot characteristics of arcade games.

It was released in April 2017 following a successful crowdfunding campaign in 2015 that raised roughly $300,000 USD to fund the game’s development. Users can explore the fantasy realm of Askian, collect, trade, and combine orbs to assemble the strongest team and battle numerous opponents.

In order to defeat their enemies in a series of fights, players must collect and mix cards to make the greatest deck possible. Spells of Genesis is surrounded and supported by a strong community of players and collectors that associate deck-building strategy with straightforward gameplay.

Players can buy in-game cards and “blockchainize” them later, or use blockchain items held in their wallets. “Blockchainization” is an SoG functionality that allows users to alter their data. Many blockchain collectibles are used in Spells of Genesis, but it also offers real and fascinating gameplay.

EverdreamSoft Crystal Suite

EverdreamSoft Crystal Suite is a set of integrated tools for exploring, creating, sharing, and managing “Orbs” — unique digital things (art, games, collectibles) tied to blockchain currency. Crystal Suite is made up of seven main pillars that can be utilized alone or in combination to achieve greater efficiency.

Casa Tookan Wallet, Orb Explorer, Orb Developer, and BitCrystals are for you if you’re a player, collector, or digital art creator. BitCrystals, Crystal Spark, Orb Market, and Analyze may be of interest to you as a game producer or IP owner.

Casa Tooken Wallet

Casa Tookan Wallet is a secure non-custodial wallet designed for gamers and collectors, the first wallet to provide users with a seamless experience across all chains launched in 2018. It allows users to handle digital assets such as Spells of Genesis cards, Cryptokitties, and other collectibles in one convenient location.

Casa Tookan is like a shelter for users’ digital property where you can open your favourite games and other apps requiring a Web3 connection directly from their wallet. Casa Tookan will protect your digital assets, allowing you to be the sole curator and guardian of your “estate” (private keys).

Most importantly, each casa is made up of a pair of Bitcoin and Ethereum addresses, the world’s first in digital blockchain wallet, acclaimed by the EDS team. Casa Tookan comes with a web browser that allows users to connect directly to different games, tools, and services.

BitCrystals

BitCrystals (BCY) is a cryptocurrency for gaming, rewarding users’ engagement, launched in 2015 as a token on the Counterparty protocol, which runs on top of the Bitcoin network. The company burned a set number of BCY on the Bitcoin blockchain and minted the same amount on Ethereum as an ERC-20 token in order to adapt the coin to the current multi-chain product strategy. Within Casa Tookan Wallet, the platform will offer a cross-chain exchange, allowing users to alter the chain on which their currency is stored.

Orb Explorer

Orb Explorer is a multi-chain block browser for game items and collectibles released in February 2020. It allows users to see their own NFTs across chains, search for NFT collections, pull in different data on the NFTs they want,  and buy locations from across chains.

Crystal Spark

Crystal Spark is a set of open-source software that makes it simple to integrate blockchain into client products (game or other). Crystal Spark is made up of a growing number of stand-alone modules that are separated into two categories:

  • General blockchain integration enables you to connect to multiple blockchains and incorporate blockchain technology into your product, whether it’s a game or something else entirely.
  • Specific Crystal Suite integration modules allow you to connect to and communicate with other Crystal Suite products.

The following products are available:

  • CS Cannon
  • CS Account
  • CS Notary
  • CS API
  • CS Canonizer

These products include capabilities such as:

  • Simplified querying of numerous blockchains
  • Unification of data across many blockchains
  • Token and asset integration
  • PHP library mapping blockchain tokens onto assets
  • The ability to add metadata to blockchain information
  • Managing ECDSA Bitcoin signatures and Ethereum signatures to authenticate users
  • Enabling cross-chain transactions in a unified way using the same vocabulary and syntax
  • Getting transactions and balances of an address
  • Getting transactions and balances of a collection
  • Listing all the collections
  • Allowing the creation of a mini local datagraph, giving the ability to easily create/update data from a remote datagraph

Roadmap

Near term plans include:

  • Federated blockchain balance
  • More automated adding of new chains and contracts that are indexed
  • More information about each Orb (ORB = Ownership Read on the Blockchain; this term is used to describe the unique combination of an asset, e.g. an image and a token, e.g. the blockchain information)
  • Filter and sort features (according to different criteria)
  • Help and FAQ
  • Links to different marketplace and Orb’s prices index

Closing Remarks

EverdreamSoft aims to facilitate the access and usage of blockchain technology for all the actors in the game and entertainment industry. Its team hopes to do so by capitalizing on the valuable experience acquired in the field of blockchain implementation in games.

EverdreamSoft experience dates back to 2010 with numerous features that guarantee a better user experience. EDS has positioned itself in the industry through strategic partnerships including Polkadot/Kusama, Blockchain Game Alliance (BGA), Ubisoft, and Klaytn.

It explores existing and emerging innovative technologies, as well as their potential applications in the entertainment industry. EDS is pioneering “real ownership” of digital assets for their users with their main game Spells of Genesis, while also setting a precedent for Bitcoin blockchain integration in games.

Project Orb, the company’s Blockchain Gaming Platform, will allow more game companies to embrace blockchain technology and usher in a new era for the gaming industry. Best of all, it works to implement the blockchains that are relevant for NFTs and not to lock users within a closed ecosystem.
