Recently, the first GXChain-based 3D card tower defense DApp game "Pirate Hegemony" created by North America's top blockchain game development studio Block Kingdom is about to open beta, which has become the hottest topic of discussion in the GXChain community. Although the game was launched in mid-April, it has attracted the participation of many community devotees, and they all said that this game has the opportunity to become one of the 2019 blockchain games in the world.
Boston's blockchain media service organization, Block North America, specially visited the core development team of "Pirates Hegemony" to reveal why this boutique DApp game chose to launch the mystery of the well-known domestic public chain GXChain. Learn more about the mysterious game information of "Pirate Hegemony".
First, the time of day – the opportunity for the outbreak of DApp games is coming
In 2018, the blockchain market was sluggish, with a lot of money and users losing. At the same time, a large number of DApps emerged. The success of CryptoKitties has made many developers see the possibility of blockchain development and have been involved in the development of DApp. Among the DApp categories, the game DApp is popular, accounting for 20% of the total category. In addition, because the game DApp has the characteristics of easy landing, many teams have regarded DApp games as a way of expanding.
The Block Kingdom team believes that this is partly due to the fact that blockchain games are currently singler and less playable, and users are eager for quality blockchain applications. They said: "The blockchain game, in the final analysis, is still the game. The essence of the game should be to provide players with fun and entertainment value. The blockchain industry needs more well-made and game-rich works, bringing players in traditional games. No experience."

Second, the geographical advantage – GXChain's good technical foundation, and sits on a million-level traffic entrance
As early as last August, GXChain founder Huang Minqiang revealed the idea that GXChain will lay out the game industry. He said, “It’s easier for developers to iteratively update and mine more needs.”
In addition to the main chain development strategy and direction, the performance of the main chain determines the different user experience, which has always been a realistic issue for DApp developers when choosing the main chain. It is well known that when the Ethereum and the Fomo3D were fired, they caused serious congestion in the Ethereum. Coinbase co-founder Fred Ehrsam pointed out that Ethereum needs to expand 100 times to accommodate large-scale Dapps with millions of active users.
When choosing a main chain, DApp developers tend to carefully compare the characteristics of different main chains, especially for good DApp developers. The Block Kingdom team stated that GXChain has a very good foundation. According to official data from Block City, there are more than 2.2 million registered users. GXChain Brock City's huge user base, high enough TPS, and a good enough collection of development tools are the points that the team chose when GXChain was chosen as the main chain to develop "Pirates".

In addition, the BK team also received blessings from the Star Block chain of the top blockchain incubator in the US East and millions of early financing from investors Ding Yunpeng and others.
"Pirate Hegemony" combines the classic tower defense rules, the exchange card community and the blockchain technology to provide a higher playability and a better gaming experience for users. In the game, each player is the hero and lord of different islands in the Thousand Islands. Players use the Brock crystal to draw cards, get the GRC-721 cards such as attacks, defensive arms and heroes, participate in the pirate attack and defense, and grab the Brock crystal of the other player, becoming the Thousand Island Overlord.
