German open-source gaming company CipSoft recently launched its role-playing game (RPG) LiteBringer on the Litecoin blockchain. This marks the first time that a game is using the said network.
According to a report, LiteBringer will allow its players to store their character progress on the Litecoin blockchain, including their in-game equipment and other items. Also, the game has a marketplace wherein players can buy and sell items.
CipSoft CEO Stephen Vogler explained that users are responsible for keeping their accounts safe and secure, as the game does not have a copy of their private keys.
Blockchain technology has huge potential for online gaming in general. I think there will be games for every popular blockchain sooner or later.
To gain access to the game, players need to send a minimum amount of LTC to their game wallet. activities including trading weapons and character creation are in fraction with LTC. if they are not willing to pay the price, they can claim free LTC from a faucet, courtesy of the game creators.
Additionally, players will have to set up their own Litecoin node for them to play, since the game is entirely decentralized.
LiteBringer is considered free-to-play (F2P) in its first month, as 90% of all transactions will be covered by CipSoft.
