what is dapp

DApps (decentralized applications) - with a high level of protection, based on the blockchain. Dapps work on the P2P network on different computers, and not on one. They are very similar to smart contracts, but they can implement much more functions and can be used not only for finance, but also for games. DApp can be a website, a mobile application, or something else. While the code responsible for the logic of the main application runs on the blockchain, this is DApp.

Advantages:

  • more transparent;
  • they often encourage user input / activity (likes, content creation, etc.);
  • harder to censor;
  • always available (while the blockchain is running).

Crypto games are blockchain games. If the whole game is built on the basis of blockchain (full chain), then such a game can be called a dapp, sometimes it is partially done for optimization. For example: a combat system can be located on game servers, as in regular games, and items, market and achievements are stored on the blockchain - for security. The main philosophy of cryptogaming is to provide players with the opportunity to own their items, achievements and earn money in games. For this, the concept of “trade in digital objects” is used, and not “donat”, as in traditional games. Donat is being replaced by real ownership of digital goods, achievements and progress, a real virtual economy is created, consisting of gaming multiverses. For some active members of our community, crypto gaming is already associated with a new type of cryptocurrency earnings along with trading and mining, combining a serious approach to game strategy, emotions and excitement from gaming. And someone even draws parallels with poker. But in crypto-gaming, earning is not the main thing, but an important component, without which it is no longer crypto-gaming. Rather, thanks to this feature, you feel a wider range of emotions and get a new, more vibrant user experience. In addition, thanks to progress, many professions are disappearing and people have free time that they can spend in the game and create a virtual economy, which, possibly, will be larger in the future than the real economy. And someone here can find their job by creating a store of digital items or making their assessment.

The main differences from traditional gaming:

  • New gaming experience, more vivid and interesting than in ordinary games;
  • cryptocurrency earnings;
  • the ability to use one item in different games;
  • Real possession of items as their own property with the possibility of resale and their uniqueness;
  • the preservation of progress and achievements in the blockchain, which also has value;
  • an opportunity to experiment with gameplay, scenarios and many others.

But it is important to know that not all crypto games are dappas. There are also centralized games with the possibility of making cryptocurrencies.

Opinion on this topic from Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong: https://cryptogamingpool.com/crypto-in-vr-coinbase. And a tip: watch a movie or read the Ready Player One book to understand where the game industry is heading.

There are different types of earnings, it is often found that in one game there are several of them. You can immediately receive currency in game tokens or platform tokens (EOS, ETH, TRX, etc.), valuable items (NFT) or resources. How can I earn in the game?

  • PvP rewards;
  • reward for PvE;
  • in-game trading;
  • tournaments;
  • Resource mining;
  • viewing ads;
  • creating content for the game;
  • and so on.

Someone is good at earning money from trading, while someone is good at PvP battles and you can make money on it (the amount is indicated at the time of the game process):

  • sometimes 10 ETH + per month;
  • sometimes 1 ETh per month;
  • sometimes in a minus.

Some developers use monetization Play-to-earn (play to earn) Embodying the old dream of gamers.

Most dapps use turn-based mechanics, so it’s possible to play several games in parallel during the “cooldown” in order to earn even more. As a result, in some crypto games you will be able to earn money, but in some not. You need to put up with this and try to limit losses, for example, increasing gaming skills, strategy and awareness of new products.

For the games that are mentioned most often in our main community, we create separate chats in which players communicate. This is done for comfortable communication of all community members. The logic is this: In general chat, you learn something new, specify some information, and when you choose what to play, you can join other participants to communicate on a specific game, create clans, trade, and more.

Earning strategies depend on what you can earn in the game:

A good game economy, in my opinion, should have a balance of entry and exit points. Money must be returned to the economy, either through taxes, commissions, monthly subscriptions, fines, or through burning items, crafting, etc., so that players would be interested to continue playing as long as possible. It is desirable that additional money come to the economy, for example through advertising, which users could switch off for free or view to receive additional remuneration. This reward could go toward offsetting initial investments or subscriptions. But while it is not used in cryptogaming, or very rarely.

In addition, you can track the indicators of crypto games on Dapp trackers to have more information about the state of affairs within the game. For example, you can calculate what the average price of buying / selling items in the game, how much the players have and how popular it is now. What can be useful for creating your own earnings strategy.

Cryptogaming earning strategies

One of the ways is to participate in airdrops / bounties / contests and other activities from developers thanks to which you can help them in their development. Often we organize these: https://cryptogamingpool.com/category/giveaway. At such events can be very valuable prizes. This will help you successfully start the game. To track such activities, we recommend using the app. Coininreams, the first application with similar content, focuses on cryptogaming and with the help of which, you can easily receive prizes. Available on iOS and Android.

With the guarantee 100%, probably nothing. One can only make an assumption about this. You can try to evaluate the project, as ICO is usually evaluated. Gather more information about past experiences of developers, see activity on social networks. If the channel has thousands of participants, and only a couple of people are active, then this is a bad sign. If admins respond for a long time or completely ignore, then this is also a bad sign. You can ask a couple of questions about the project to our community members. in telegram or in other social networks, you might learn something new.

  1. First, you need to have wallets / accounts created in the main blockchains: Ethereum, EOS, TRON, which you completely control. To do this, you must own a private key to these wallets. And in no case to compromise him, otherwise you will lose all the money on it.
  2. Install official clients to store cryptocurrency. From the informal, we recommend Lumi collect и Enjin Wallet. For eos Eos-voterfor TRON Tronwatch.
  3. Install the necessary software to sign transactions (Scatter, Metamask, Nifty Wallet, Tronlink).
  4. Surfing recommend installing browser Brave.
  5. Install mobile dapp browser. In some wallets, it is already built. (Lumi collect, Trust Wallet, Coinbase Wallet, Opera) to play from mobile devices.
  6. Learn how to use block browser. We recommend new Enjinx.io, either popular Etherscanfor EOS bloks.io, for TRON tronscan.org.
  7. Compilation of EOS wallets.

First you need to install a DApp browser that supports Web3, usually they come with built-in wallets.

The most popular ones for Ethereum:

  • Lumi Collect;
  • Trust Wallet;
  • Coinbase Wallet;
  • Opera;
  • Enjin Wallet;
  • Cipher

For EOS:

  • Meet.one;
  • TokenPocket
  • NOVA.

For TRON:

  • TronWallet;
  • Trust Wallet.

For POA:

  • Trust Wallet.

Steps to run:

  1. Download the DApp browser application on Android / iOS.
  2. Create a new address on the Ethereum network / another network or import your existing address into the wallet section of your web3 browser (Trust, Status, or some other).
  3. Drive the URL of the decentralized application (DApp) into the address bar.
  4. You may need a certain number of tokens in order to use the application (sign transactions), but without tokens, the application should start.
  • Test crypto games and enter at an early stage, well, or in the first week after release. Firstly, as a rule, tests of crypto games are free, and when testing a game, you can understand the mechanics of the game and what the economy is based on, where and how you can earn money and, based on this, think over what strategy you will use. Secondly, from the very start of the game, all participants are in approximately equal conditions and there may not be a clear leader. There is an opportunity to become one, in the future it can bring significant dividends.
  • Take part in contests / distributions / bounties. There is always a chance to win. Personally, I won several and received valuable prizes, various Starter packs, which will be very useful to you at the beginning of the game.
  • Follow the news and look in advance at interesting projects, so as not to miss the moment. Perhaps in some, you can even go not presale to get a big discount.
  • If you invest in a game before its release, then you need to collect and analyze information about the developer, there are always risks.
  • Track indicators “To change something, you need to first calculate or measure it.”
  • Take into account the costs of the platform (commission, staking).
