The last two months have been incredibly busy here at Stratis. Not only have we announced new community projects like London Desserts Club and Space War, but we have hosted a community vote and decided to migrate to a layer-one Ethereum blockchain. With so much to discuss, it’s time to look at our milestones over the last two months.
Stratis migrates to Ethereum ecosystem, becoming StratisEVM
StratisEVM is a web3-ready Ethereum-based proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain featuring the native $STRAT token. StratisEVM will be a layer one blockchain, with plans to introduce a layer two to deliver high-throughput and low-finality decentralised computing. These advanced capabilities are specifically designed to support gaming and DeFi applications.
The move to a one-layer Ethereum was not one taken lightly. The resolution was put to the community, who were then given two weeks to cast their vote, which resulted in 99.3% in favour of the migration. By moving to Ethereum, Stratis hopes to accelerate innovation by making it easier to develop blockchain solutions using more widely available tooling and the interoperability capabilities inherent to the Ethereum ecosystem.
For all of the web3 gamers, StratisEVM promises to bolster and support the expansion of our P2E ecosystem, as we’ve announced that Dawn of Ships, Space War, and London Desserts will all be released on StratisEVM Next year and utilize our Club Pass and $OVIA token.
We have written a series of blogs that go into the transition more fully — we welcome you to have a look.
Two months ago, we saw the final version of Corgi Dash submitted to Google Play. In the run-up to the global release of the game, developers have been working hard on new and exciting features. These additions were designed to make the game more enjoyable for NFT natives and casual players alike while continuing to increase the value of the game.
Two months on, feedback from players has been overwhelmingly positive, with many citing its enjoyability and smooth performance on their Google devices.
Dawn of Ships update
September welcomed the official release of the RPG game Dawn of Ships.
This latest version is a significant achievement for the developers, who have worked tirelessly to create an innovative game while bug patching and crowdsourcing feedback as they went.
Via the official discord, Dawn of Ships commented: ‘This release includes all the crucial features we promised to deliver to our community. It has been a lengthy journey, and I am delighted that we have delivered on our promises to build a massive 3D P2E game from scratch. I am also proud of all the tools and projects we have contributed to the Stratis Blockchain.”
The Dawn of Ships team aren’t slowing down anytime soon, with plans for game updates already in the works. The team is working towards players being able to burn ships in return for better vessels while improving performance and adding utilities. Plans are even in the works for the Dawn of Ships to release on the Epic Game Store.
London Desserts Club
We are also thrilled to unveil the upcoming web3 game, London Desserts, created in collaboration with the talented TinyLizard Studio. The game will be an immersive experience on StratisEVM, billed to launch in early 2024. London Desserts is a simulation game that puts you in charge of your own cafe, allowing you to nurture and expand the business.
Players work and manage their dessert shop to generate revenue that can be converted to $OVIA tokens. In this P2E time-management game, you need to serve your customers, upgrade your equipment, and shop to increase your revenue and earnings.
Last month, founder of Stratis Chris Trew joined Jill Malandrino, host of Nasdaq Trade Talks, to discuss the soft launch of Ticketsphere and web3 gaming.
Chris explained how Ticketsphere and NFT ticketing can resolve some of the main issues we see in the ticketing world. He went on to explain how we’re witnessing a growing trend of people buying tickets for popular events en-masse with the intention of reselling on third party sites. As a result, fans become priced out of going to their favourite shows and events and artists and organisers see none of this extra value.
Within Ticketsphere, it is possible to prevent this secondary market entirely if the artists wish. Alternatively, if artists are open to a secondary market, they have ways that they can program the tickets in line with their demands. For example, a ceiling might prevent tickets sold at an enormously inflated price and prevent fans from being priced out. Artists could also embed royalties into their tickets, which means that everytime a ticket is resold, the artist earns a percentage of the cost.
Ticketsphere is visible on our site for anyone eager to experience the future of ticketing.
