Major League Baseball to Launch Crypto Game On Blockchain
If you are a baseball fan and a gamer too, you are in for a treat because the Major League Baseball (MLB) is now launching a crypto-based baseball game on the blockchain technology. Crypto online gamers are now going to have the time of their lives with this crypto baseball game that is being launched by a blockchain company that has taken the licensing rights from MLB.
The success of CryptoKitties, which is an ethereum-based blockchain game has lent a lot of excitement to crypto gamers in the online world with the launch of this crypto baseball game.
Baseball collectibles such as bobbleheads and cards are not being revamped this century on the blockchain technology. MLB recently announced its plans to launch a crypto game that will run on the blockchain of ethereum and will come out later this summer.
As mentioned above, this crypto-based version of the game of classic collectibles is much like CryptoKitties, which is a popular blockchain game in the online world. In this game, players can purchase and trade kitten cartoon characters using ether. CryptoKitties is already a massive success and has made more than $25 million worth of ether worldwide. The MLB version of this game will allow gamers to buy their favorite avatars that will consist of some famous moments in the history of baseball. The users can then sell or trade those avatars and earn several rewards.
MLB had been on the lookout for creating such a game that is based on blockchain for a fairly long time according to a report released by Yahoo Finance. The company got the much-needed validation and confidence by the success of CryptoKitties and thus, decided to go ahead with its plan.
For now, the main target of the developers of this game are people who have already been fairly involved in the online gaming scene of crypto games. However, they do mention that it is a learning curve and will take them some time to get accustomed to the entire process.
