The gaming industry is seeing a major revolution coming in a new burgeoning niche. Crypto games will storm the $200 billion gaming industry by 2022. Players are attracted to crypto games like Calvaria by the prospect of being able to earn tokens while playing, according to Statista.
Crypto games are a new category of games that are trying to take over the gaming industry. Calvaria, a blockchain-based play-to-earn (P2E) fantasy battle card game is currently in pre-sale, and in a matter of weeks, the team behind the game has raised over $2.4 million through the sale of RIA tokens.
Much of the RIA’s selling was done last Thursday, when a crypto whale invested nearly $100,000. This shows that it is not only small investors who buy tokens.
Currently, 80% of the RIA tokens in the Calvaria presale have been sold. This means that it is in the fifth and final phase of the pre-sale. 1 RIA token currently costs around €0.0325 and is therefore a good price according to observers. With several confirmed listings on both centralized and decentralized crypto exchanges in early 2023, things seem to be moving quickly.
It is expected that a series of NFT drops will be made shortly after the release of the alpha version of Calvaria. This release is expected in the second quarter of 2023.
There are some big names backing Calvaria, including KuCoin, Polygon Studios, Gate.io, XT.com, and Chainplay. The project has also received positive news coverage on news websites Benzinga, Business 2 Community, Yahoo Finance and Yahoo News, among others.
Another reason investors are attracted to Calvaria is that the game has a $100,000 giveaway, which allows investors to win a lot of RIA.
What is Calvary?
Calvaria is the project behind the afterlife-like battle card cryptogame called Calvaria: Duels of Eternity. Calvaria says it aims to accelerate the adoption of crypto and crypto games by creating a crypto game with a P2E element that will leverage the successes of previous card games. In this way, the game hopes to bridge the gap between the real and the virtual world.
Players can build a deck using NFT cards that they can duel against other players in a mix of battle cards and strategy. Players can also stake tokens on this, increasing the stakes of the battle.
The game will be playable on mobile applications in the Apple Store and Google Play Store as well as on the computer. With this, the game hopes to attract a large audience. The game also tries to introduce users to the crypto version of the game through in-game incentives.
There is a free-to-play version of the game where players become more and more involved in the crypto variant of the game as they progress. The difference between the two variants is that in the crypto version, users can use Calvaria (RIA) tokens to buy battle cards and improve their decks.
Calvaria has a number of features that set it apart from other similar games, such as the Unchained crypto gaming platform and the Splinterland game. None of these competitors offer an in-game story mode. Calvaria is also the only one that has 3D characters or the ability to play without connecting a crypto wallet to the game.
Other notable features of Calvaria include the system that allows users to control the development of the game, the so-called Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO). Additionally, there is a peer-to-peer community marketplace in the game. By owning the RIA, you can vote in the DAO. This is based on the ratio of the RIA tokens owned.
Calvaria hopes to accelerate Web3 adoption
Calvaria hopes to accelerate the adoption of Web3 gaming by becoming popular and thereby removing the barriers that still exist for players who do not understand crypto and therefore do not have a crypto wallet. This is something that is often required to play Web3 games.
By making the game available on desktop in addition to mobile, the development team is also appealing to a larger group of users than other games that can only be played on one of the two devices.
