Summer may be cooling down as September knocks at the door, but things have been heating up on the Stratis blockchain. Developers have been working tirelessly to create new and exciting features and bug fixes across games, as well as our proprietary app and service. Meanwhile, Ticketsphere continues to capture the attention of landmark venues. It’s time to reflect on this great month for developers everywhere working on the Stratis blockchain.
It is with great excitement that we can finally announce that the final version of Corgi Dash has been completed and submitted to Google Play. In the run-up to the global release of Corgi Dash, developers have been working hard on new and exciting features. These new features were designed to make the game more enjoyable for NFT natives and casual players alike while continuing to increase the value of the game. Progress can now be stored using Google logins, while 12 Google Play achievements have been added to the game. With in-game coins, players also have the opportunity to buy accessories and dress up their corgis.
Dawn of Ships update
Dawn of Ships developers have had a busy month, responding to the community feedback while new features have been built and old issues resolved.
Dawn of Ships is transferring their server to a private dedicated version to enhance security for players and prevent data from being leaked or stolen by third parties.
There has also been some significant troubleshooting — at the beginning of the month, Dawn of Ships successfully applied a hotfix patch to resolve issues with the leaderboard. Before the patch, OVIA earned through Ambush was not added to the leaderboard in the game. In the latest version, developers have also fixed the “sailing into the void” bug.
All the while, the new features launched in July are up and running with great success, including and not limited to Ambush mode, purchasing gold with OVIA and of course, the leader board displaying the top 10 active plunder and ambush missions.
The background work on Ticketsphere’s operability has reached completion and is ready for use. The Ticketsphere project was a significant undertaking, as it sought to resolve issues in the ticketing industry and revolutionise how we use and understand tickets.
The Ticketsphere app allows for convenient and secure ticketing, including unique perks like collectibles that sit alongside the NFT tickets. The app also offers revolutionary ticketing solutions for event organisers, as it is a fraud-reducing and eco-friendly way to implement non-custodial ownership through NFT tickets. The fraud-prevention and secure features set NFT tickets apart from conventional tickets, while promising to address the biggest problems experienced by event goers and event organisers alike.
Ticketsphere is visible on our site for anyone eager to experience at the future of ticketing.
We are now in talks with venues, so keep an eye out for event announcements so you can be amongst the first to use our NFT tickets.
August marks the last triumphant month of summer before we start to settle in for autumn. For those not enjoying the sun or off on holiday, its time to review the achievements of the developers working on the Stratis Platform over the last month.
Cross game NFTs come to Corgi Dash and Dawn of Ships
The Dawn of Ships (DoS) and Corgi Dash cross-game NFT feature is live. Players can now use their Corgi Dash NFTs in DoS to get a plunder bonus, means ships that have a Corgi NFT as part of their crew can earn more. Cross-game NFTs could offer the platform to make a unified gaming ecosystem across games, which otherwise would have very little in common. The teams at DoS and Corgi Dash are excited to see the uptake on this collaboration, as are we.
Dawn of Ships update
Along with the cross-game NFTs, Dawn of Ships (DoS) has also released an exciting update. DoS has added a new section to the main menu that shows the top 10 active plunder and ambush missions, offering players a new way to see the global community playing the game and aspire to be a part of it.
The new update also officially introduces Ambush mode — an exciting new game feature that allows players to disrupt, attack, loot the plunder missions of other players.
Finally, the update offers a new feature that enables players to purchase gold using OVIA. This makes in-game gold purchases easier to purchase and the internal economy more immersive.
Ticketsphere has officially opened its doors to the public, enabling anyone to access to its enhanced features and seamless operability. The app allows for convenient and secure ticketing, including unique perks like collectibles that sit alongside the NFT tickets. The app also offers revolutionary ticketing solutions for event organisers, as it is a fraud-reducing and eco-friendly way to implement non-custodial ownership through NFT tickets.
We are now in talks with venues, so keep an eye out for event announcements so you can be one of the first to use our NFT tickets.
Stratis DevEx is a project dedicated to making smart contracts and programming on the Stratis blockchain as simple as possible. We want to ensure the Stratis blockchain is to continue to thrive and prosper.
The team has recently released some videos explaining work on the Stratis blockchain. One is on browsing the Opdex smart contract repository and the other looks at running the Stratis DevEx GUI on Linux. If you’re a programmer who is interested in working on the Stratis blockchain we recommend giving them a watch.
Stratis is ecstatic to announce the release of Ticketsphere, an innovative NFT ticketing platform. Ticketsphere empowers event managers, artists, and venues with a digital environment to generate and distribute event tickets in the form of non-fungible tokens. As part of the ticket-buying process, the NFTs are relayed to the ticket purchaser, ensuring legitimate ownership, a fully non-custodial experience, and more avant-garde experiences.
Ticketsphere is devised for both web3 and non-web3 users, putting a premium on accessibility and user-friendly experiences. Tickets can be purchased using traditional methods of debit/credit card via a simple e-commerce journey. After buying a ticket, customers scan a QR code or click the Open Wallet button to register their device, leading to the issuance and secure storage of the ticket within the Ticketsphere app on their smartphone.
The Ticketsphere mobile app is also utilized at the venue, allowing staff and event organizers to effectively verify an attendee’s ticket’s authenticity. With NFT tickets, event managers can now interact with their attendees in an unprecedented manner, offering access to exclusive content, loyalty rewards, community access, and a multitude of novel digital experiences that vastly surpass the traditional paper tickets.
At present, Ticketsphere’s website is set to a demo mode, permitting anyone to explore its functionalities via ‘mock’ events that are entirely free to acquire. Individuals interested in listing their event can initiate this process by going through the ‘Create an Event’ steps. Ticketsphere’s mobile applications are readily available on both the iOS App Store and Google Play Store. Alternatively, these can be downloaded directly by visiting https://ticketsphere.com.
You can follow Ticketsphere social channels for more information on upcoming features of the platform, including the ability to introduce royalties into ticket sales, combating the age-old problem of ticket scalpers who resell at an inflated price.
Schools are out, the USA is celebrating, and airports are full with jolly holiday goers, that can only mean one thing- July has come. For the Stratis community, that means we get another chance to review the achievements and work of the last month.
Stratis unveils Project Atlantis
Our first announcement is a big one. We at Stratis have announced the exciting development of a new game: Project Atlantis.
Project Atlantis will be a city-building game based in a sci-fi world. Video games with a science fiction theme are consistently among the most eagerly awaited and sought-after titles each year. This includes both high-profile AAA releases from leading studios and publishers, as well as more niche offerings from independent developers striving to make a unique impact on the genre.
In Project Atlantis, every player will play on the same server, with each player beginning in a colony with tiny structures and its own resources, military and markets. As the game develops colonies expand and compete for supremacy. Political interactions add an engaging layer to the game with players having to compete and collaborate with other colonies through espionage, trade and war.
We wanted to add real stakes to the game. We had a vision of a city builder that utilises in-game currency to give the time spent playing a real-world value. That’s why we utilised the Cirrus blockchain to add an additional element of reality. This means that the time you spend in game has real value, giving you the ability to trade and swap the in-game currency for real world money.
However, our dedicated team of elite gaming developers have gone even further. We are implementing AI through LLMs to allow for cutting-edge hyper-realistic conversations with NPCs in newly discovered cities. It will also allow for unique terrain creation, character creation, atmospheric music and artefacts.
Corgi Dash promises innovative cross-game NFTs and infinite game mode
Corgi Dash is a Mario Run-inspired game in which players attempt to run all the way to the Corgi house and win NFTs. Corgi Dash has been teasing the release of infinite mode, a game mode that allows players to play infinite levels. This gives the game more replay value and means the fun can keep on going. The team has also been hard at work improving the game’s animations for a more immersive playing experience.
Corgi Dash have also released some information about their hotly anticipated cross-game NFTs with Dawn of Ships. When used in Dawn of Ships, Corgi Dash NFTS will give a plunder GOLD bonus of 1.25% bonus for each NFT used as part of your crew. These cross-game NFTs will be implemented in the next Dawn of Ships update.
Cross-game NFTs are yet to be introduced in web3 games and Stratis will be one of the first blockchains to showcase them. Cross-game NFTs will offer players an integrated gaming experience and encourage users to try new games. It encourages players to play more without the stale repetitiveness that comes with ‘grinding’ on the same game- an experience most gamers are all too familiar with. Cross-game NFTs very well may be a big part of the future of gaming, and we are excited to see it in action.
My XR world releases Beta 6
My XR World allows players to create and socialise in their own personalised space in the metaverse. They have released their Beta 6 version, which the team tells us to consider the ‘director’s cut’ (or in this case really the ‘developer’s build’) for the full game. This is because while refining will still need to take place on the UI before it can be called complete, the metaverse experience is now fully functional.
Getting to this point required significant changes. They have moved away from Playfab as the user management console and partnered with Loot Locker for stronger monetization support. This means you can now publish incredible curations of work into your own personal gallery and truly call it your own.
This means you can hop onto your PC and in just a few clicks create your own VR space and interact with friends. So why not do so? Contact the team if you want to learn more [email protected]
The team at Dawn of Ships has been hard at work over the last month or so working on new features. The developers of the swashbuckling P2E Web3 game powered by the Stratis blockchain are still hard at work on the new ambushing feature. This feature will allow you to strategically loot the plunder missions of other players. They are also working to introduce a feature that allows you to purchase gold using OVIA. This will make it easier to buy gold, in turn making gameplay more convenient
The other big update is the collaborative work with Corgi Dash on cross game NFTs. Do keep an eye out for the next update to put your Corgi Dash NFTs to use in Dawn of Ships to gain some extra gold!
Six months ago, Stratis assembled a gaming division comprised of an elite team of gaming developers with one distinct goal: to develop a game that synergizes AI with Stratis Blockchain Technologies. Today, Stratis is thrilled to unveil their latest development, Project Atlantis.
Stratis set out to take city builder games a step further and has done so by introducing an economic aspect of an in-game currency token deployed on the Cirrus Blockchain. This game currency can be earnt, traded and swapped with real money, giving your hours spent in the game a real-world value. In addition to integrating Stratis Blockchain Technologies, Project Atlantis will utilize Artificial Intelligence to provide extraordinary conversational experiences with Non-Player-Characters in newly discovered cities. The utilization of LLMs will also offer real-time artefact generation, creating unique in-game assets, such as terrain, characters, items, and more. It doesn’t end there. Project Atlantis will also lean on generative models to provide atmospheric music based on the surrounding environment, creating a genuinely unique experience for players as they navigate the world of Project Atlantis. When applied correctly, gaming is a great use case for blockchain and AI, enabling new and innovative ways for users to genuinely own unique in-game items and explore new token economics that holds value outside the gaming realm.
Set in a futuristic landscape, Project Atlantis is a city-building game where every player exists on a single server, and the gameplay unfolds regardless of your online status. Your journey begins in colonies – once bustling hubs now desolate, dotted with tiny structures. Each colony operates independently, owning its resources, buildings, armies, and traders. As the game progresses, these colonies expand, more building slots are unlocked, and players are guided towards collaboration, trades, and combat for supremacy. You will lead your armies through epic battles for resources and destruction, manage resource nodes, create trade mechanisms, and engage in espionage to stay ahead of the competition. Moreover, you can join alliances and trading guilds for political interactions or maintain relations with resource-rich regions to be conquered, traded with, or negotiated upon.
Screenshots of the actual game can be found below:
For those who relish intricate resource management, city building, and strategy games or crave an immersive world where earning and gaming coexist, Project Atlantis is your ultimate destination. It promises intense gameplay, multi-layered strategic elements, and, most significantly, the integration of Stratis Blockchain Technologies and Artificial Intelligence. We look forward to welcoming you into Project Atlantis and venturing beyond the traditional gaming experience into the unexplored frontier of future gaming.
More details will be released in the coming months, including exclusive beta access for members of the Stratis Community. Stay tuned in our Discord server to be the first to know: https://discordapp.com/invite/9tDyfZs
For many, June means the start of summer and vacation season, a perfect time to go over the achievements from across the Stratis ecosystem from the last month.
20th May Meet-up
May saw another Stratis meet-up at the Tower Suites in central London. Sunnier than the last few meet-ups and located on the rooftop terrace, it was a happy occasion which allowed community members to connect and share what they have been working on over the last few months.
Stratis co-founder, Krushang Patel, presented at the most recent meet-up, talking about the Stratis ecosystem—a huge thank you to all attendees.
Dawn of Ships updated
Those keeping up to date with the Stratis community will be well aware of the progress of Dawn of Ships. Late April saw the open beta release, which has opened the game to a much wider audience. For those of you who haven’t had a chance to try the game, Dawn of Ships is an idle RPG game that allows players to engage in plundering missions and ambushes to earn utility NFTs and other prizes.
Dawn of Ships has released a new version, V1.1.4, mainly consisting of bug fixes. This will help to optimize the playing experience further. Dawn of Ships has made a point to thank everyone for their feedback, which is key to offering continued improvements to the game.
Corgi Dash is a Mario Run-inspired game that is available to play on PC and WebGL. Corgi Dash has announced some game changes, including an infinite game mode. Infinite game mode allows users to play endless levels. This promises non-stop fun for the Corgi Dash players!
Following US regulatory advice, the game will transition from a P2E structure to a P2O structure. While important, the game still promises to remain engaging, and the Stratis blockchain remains central.
In another exciting development, Stratis plans to introduce cross-game NFTs. With this change, Corgi Dash NFT holders can use their NFT in Dawn of Ships. Expect a more integrated Stratis ecosystem and gaming experience, meaning there has never been a better time to get your Corgi Dash NFTs.
File Protected approaching launch
A recent announcement from FileProtected suggests they are approaching launch. FileProtected is an NFT marketplace that gives creators more control of their intellectual property, hoping to increase trust in the creative process. It does so through a content registration service that uses blockchain, timestamps, and digital fingerprints to secure copyright ownership. Buyers and sellers can work directly with each other, meaning fewer intermediaries, creating a marketplace where everyone can trust the integrity of assets.
Some features being launched include licensing and marketplace features for easy transactions. Other improvements include the code, UI, and ‘simple legal’ feature. ‘Simple legal’ allows users to easily copyright and monetize their assets. A new feature will also enable users to link their sales channels (NFT, print sales, agent, etc.).
Much work has gone on in the background at FileProtected, and we look forward to the launch.
Ticketsphere approaches release
Earlier this year, Stratis announced they would release a next-generation ticketing platform, Ticketsphere. The deployment of NFT ticketing services promises to reduce fraud and improve the ticketing experience. Ticketsphere will allow organizers to issue tickets as NFTs, which can be paid for in FIAT currency.
NFTs will benefit ticker holders as it is a definitive and secure proof of ownership, allowing more control over the exchange and resale of tickets. It will also benefit artists who can now keep track of ownership and prevent extortionate resales, or at least earn royalties on any resales which occur. Historically ticketing providers have also taken extortionate cuts of ticket sales, losing artists and fans money. Therefore, Ticketsphere promises to disrupt and optimize the ticketing space.
We have been working hard on Ticketsphere’s official release, which is getting closer by the day. To keep up to date with the release and other updates, follow Ticketsphere on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Ticketsphere_
For many, the month of May is when summer stops being a dream and starts to become a reality. So as we pass Easter and roll into summer, we want to take this opportunity to look back at April and celebrate some achievements from across the Stratis community.
STRAX listed on KuCoin
April saw STRAX, the cryptocurrency linked to the Stratis blockchain, listed on KuCoin. The Stratis blockchain runs a proof of authority mechanism, which makes it more sustainable than major blockchains. This means STRAX is better for the environment than most. KuCoin is a secure cryptocurrency exchange that allows the trading of most major cryptocurrencies. STRAX being available on KuCoin is an important step in making STRAX more widely available for digital purchases and trading.
Late April saw a huge milestone for Dawn of Ships as they released their open beta. Earlier in the month, Dawn of Ships released game update v1.1.0. This update included new features like a mission timer, improved UI, bug fixes and more.
Those who have read this blog will be familiar with Dawn of Ships; it is a swashbuckling idle RPG game in which players can earn tokens and use utility NFTs from the Stratis blockchain. The open beta opens the game up for all of us to try, and the changes from the most recent update will continue to make the game more functional and allow users to get more immersed in strategy and gameplay.
HashBattle is a blockchain gaming platform powered by Stratis. We were thrilled to see the Hashbattle team announce that several new games, including Car Loops and Line Runner, will be added to the Hashbattle arena soon. By playing these games, players earn rewards, which are facilitated by the Stratis blockchain
This is added to Hashbattle’s already fun-packed portfolio, which includes games like Cops Clash, Hurdle Hop, Tunnel Trouble and Counting Snakes. Get playing now to earn for yourself!
Corgi Dash has had their third SDA proposal approved
Congratulations to Corgi Dash on getting their third SDA proposal approved. Corgi Dash is an action-packed play-to-earn game on the Stratis blockchain. The game sees players attempt to make the dash to the apex of the Corgi House.
We look forward to seeing the funds used to improve the game further.
April derives from the Latin term ‘to open’ — referring to flowers fully blooming in spring. As we head into April, the last month has certainly been a time of blooming for Stratis as we’ve seen SDA proposals, events, releases, and lots of development. Please read below for a recap of where we now stand as April begins.
My XR World
The My XR World team has been working hard on some exciting new functions, implementing an add friends feature, which allows users to invite their buddies and visit their worlds easily. Making My XR World a functional social space for users is an essential step in the development of the experience.
There are also several developments in the pipeline for My XR World. The team is working on implementing a tagging system that will improve the organising of digital assets and help users display them in personalised spaces. There is also work to improve the uploading of assets, including 3D, entire Unity scenes, Reddit pages and music files. There will also include tools that allow users to monetise some assets they upload.
The team are working to make the experience more immersive, including building a new UI and the ability to buy storefront space in the metaverse mall. If you want to learn more or try the Beta, contact the team in their Discord Server.
Trivia Legends has been released for more than a month and has secured 10,000 players and seen 1,400 new game wallets created. Clearly people are excited to try their hand at the innovative trivia-strategy game.
Kiqqi, the developers behind Trivia Legends, are working on several improvements in the NFT systems, including fixes to the mint scaling system and tools to ease NFT game collection management. They are also researching ways to introduce cross-game NFT characters — so do watch this space as the Kiqqi games universe could soon become interconnected. Other developments in the Kiqqi camp include work on their Question API and Database for Trivia Legends, which will allow for extensions like adding questions on the fly and multi-language translations.
Last month on March 24th, we saw another enjoyable meetup for the Stratis Community at Tower Suites in London. The meetups are a key part of building Stratis as a community, with merch, drinks, insightful presentations, and pleasant conversation always found in abundance. We were particularly pleased to see more of the work from Trivia Legends, Dawn of Ships and My XR World, all of which are powered by the Stratis blockchain.

With Corgi Dash now available, there is no better time to click the links below and experience it first-hand.
Stratisphere, the Stratis blockchain’s own NFT marketplace, has released the Stratisphere NFT Wallet for iOS and Android. This will make NFTs easier to store, buy and sell from your phone — which is vital for the Stratis Ecosystem as a whole as more of Stratisphere’s NFTs are leveraged in games on the Stratis blockchain.
Stratisphere is the ideal place to list and buy NFTs, with 0% marketplace commission and enforced royalties. So if you want to download the app for iOS or Android, click on the respective links below.
Dawn of Ships has reached an important milestone in the closed Beta release, which allows Club Pass holders to play the game. So if you want to have a go, Astroverse club passes are available at the Stratisphere store. Dawn of Ships is a swashbuckling P2E Web3 game powered by the Stratis Blockchain, which sees players battle it out on the seas, with utility NFTs representing ships and crew to offer an immersive, strategic and engaging experience for players.
Soon we expect to see the open Beta release, so keep an eye on their Twitter so you can begin playing as soon as it is released.
We are also very excited to announce the V1 release of Coinvault. Coinvault is a Stratis and Cirrus non-custodial HD wallet in your extension browser for tokens, identities, NFTs and more. Featuring indexers, smart contract interactions and more, it allows for an integrated approach with the Stratisphere platform and Opdex.
The Coinvault team is now working on optimising and adding more features. Specifically, they are focussing on the stability of the code secure audits. They recently presented at the Stratis meetup, so watch for future presentations and developments.
Many in the Stratis community will already know that development using the Stratis blockchain has been active in the early part of 2023. Below, we summarise some of the major developments on the Stratis blockchain, however there is no replacement for joining the Stratis community yourself and seeing the updates first-hand on our Discord. Anyway, without further ado, here is the Stratis Decentralised Accelerator (SDA) update number seven, summarising the major updates which have been facilitated by the SDA over the last few months.
My XR World
My XR World is a unique metaverse experience which allows users to socialise online and display their digital assets in a personalised virtual space. Recent updates have enhanced the user experience on the My XR World platform, with one of the most exciting of these recent additions is a new feature which allows users to upload almost any type of image to their world with ease. This allows for increased personalisation of your space- a key feature for My XR World.
There have also been some operational improvements, such as updates to the asset browser and improved moderation features. This will allow for better organisation of assets and ensuring My XR World is safe for everyone, two significant steps in making My XR World a more user-friendly and enjoyable experience.
The My XR World team is also hard at work on new features following the approval of their third SDA proposal. This includes work to further improve uploading of assets, including 3D assets, entire Unity scenes and music files. This will include tools which allow users to monetize 3D assets they upload, rewarding artists for their work and increasing incentives to innovate and create. We also hope to allow users to upload their reddit pages in the Metaverse 3D environment through Reddit P. This will allow users to easily and aesthetically present memes, the latest media and other updates in the Metaverse, through a platform which many of our users already enjoy regularly.
There is more work being undertaken including work on a new UI and the ability to buy storefront in the metaverse mall- however we only have so much space. If you are interested in learning more or want to try the beta test, contact the team at [email protected]. We look forward to seeing you in the metaverse!
Kiqqi games is a Croatian game development team that has embraced NFTs and web3 as a core part of their company ethos. They are currently working on Trivia Legends, a Trivia strategy game powered by the Stratis Blockchain, in which characters are represented by NFTs.
Kiqqi are currently working on a number of improvements in the NFT systems. This includes fixes to the mint scaling system and tools to ease NFT game collection management, which is used in Trivia Legends but can theoretically be used across all of their games. They are also researching ways to introduce cross-game NFT characters- so do watch this space as the Kiqqi games universe could soon become very connected
Other work going on across Kiqqi include work on their Question API and Database for Trivia Legends, which will allow for extensions like adding questions on the fly and multi-language translations. Work is also ongoing for new game features, where they are currently focussing work on improving existing code and architecture.
With the recent release on iOS and Android stores, there has never been a better time to start playing Trivia Legends.
Stratis DevEx is a project dedicated to improving the developer experience for those using Stratis smart contracts. DevEx is currently working on a few new features, these include implementing a call graph exploration tool window, control-flow graph exploration tool and class + struct diagram tool window. Another piece in development is cross-platform GUI which will analyse the running of different IDEs like Visual Studio and JetBrains Rider which helps to visualise information and will also provide UI elements allowing a valid smart contract to be tested or uploaded to a node.
DevEx is essential for the Stratis blockchain to realise its potential as smart contracts automates certain actions on the blockchain, making the process more user friendly- decreasing the burden of trust required for transactions to take place.
Read more about the work being undertaken on DevEx here

March sees the days becoming longer, things warming up, and the trees starting to bloom. As we move into spring, the Stratis community has a lot to celebrate. We have seen several updates, releases and meetups — read a recap of this below.
Stratis Unreal Metaverse Plugin
Stratis has released a new Metaverse Plugin, which is available now from the Epic Games Unreal Marketplace.
The plugin helps designers to interact with the node in the Stratis blockchain. This enables users to leverage decentralised infrastructure to build next-generation apps and games. The plugin uses decentralised apps (dApps) that have their backend code running on a decentralised network in the place of a centralised server. Smart Contracts are used for the app’s logic, allowing for transparent mediation of transactions.
The plug-in also allows users to mint, transfer and deploy NFTs and ERC20- like tokens, allowing for enhanced security, real ownership, and operational in-game currencies.
Interact with the Stratis node today by downloading the plugin here:
On the 17th of February, we again welcomed many of you to Tower Suites in London. The community is vital to any healthy web3 ecosystem, and it is always good to see you guys in person as we continue to build our community. Thanks to everyone who came- and a special thanks to those who spoke.
Our next one is on the 24th of March, so grab your free tickets from the link below. We can’t wait to see you there!
We briefly mentioned the breaking news of the Apple and Android release of Trivia Legends in our last monthly update, but we thought we’d give it a little more focus this month.
Trivia legends is a casual mobile play-to-own collectible-style trivia game. Trivia is mixed with strategy to offer a twist to the standard trivia format — a move which makes gameplay a novel, yet enjoyable, experience. Player avatars are NFTs that increase in power the more in-game experience is gained.
The new version includes a number of new features and improvements. These include a collection of NFT characters from the Stratis blockchain and collectible rewards.
It is now available on Android and Apple stores, so be sure to play it for yourself:
Dawn of Ships is making preparations for their Beta release and have revealed information about the roll out and some of the features they plan to offer. They announced this month that Astroverse club pass holders will be the first to play Dawn of Ships, with each pass also giving the holder a free NFT ship for in-game use.
Furthermore, the Dawn of Ships NFT page is now live. You can click here to browse the collection here. The ships offer in-game use, so if you want to sail the seas and participate in raids, getting your hands on some ship and crew NFTs can boost your vessel and offer rewards bonuses.
Be sure to keep your eyes open for any updates by scanning the Dawn of Ships website, Discord and Twitter.
Ticketsphere, Stratis’ next generation NFT ticketing platform, will release on 29th March. Ticketsphere replaces physical tickets with NFTs that offer better ownership, a reduced risk of fraud and a new means of interaction with ticket owners.
Ticketsphere is unique as it introduces NFTs to ticketing and makes these NFTs accessible. Typically you must own cryptocurrency to interact with a blockchain, which can alienate new users as it requires an understanding of crypto and often the trust of a centralised exchange. Ticketsphere allows users to purchase using a debit/credit card or even newer payment methods.
To learn more, read our blog release here. There will be more updates to come, so we recommend you keep your eyes on our Twitter and ourwebsite, which is launching soon.
GBPT: Progress made and new compliance officer hired
One of Stratis’ immediate core objectives is issuing a Great British Pound Token stablecoin. Our CEO and founder Chris Trew recently spoke to City AM to outline why the world needs a GBP stablecoin. The next step towards offering a secure and trusted stablecoin is ensuring regulatory compliance. We have hired an experienced Compliance Officer and are working with the law firm CMS, the only UK law firm to employ a crypto industry specialist.
