Why did we choose Algorand Blockchain as our game infrastructure?
In 2021, due to our experience in game development and our previous familiarity with the blockchain field, and the facilities that this field provides to users, we decided to enter this genre of game development.
During this process, we examined different blockchains to use as game infrastructure. Then we got acquainted with Algorand, and this acquaintance coincided with the holding of the Algorand Hackathon, so we participated in the Algorand Hackathon, and during this event, we were able to get to know the different features of this blockchain. We chose it as the right choice for our new game.
In the following, we will get to know the various components of this blockchain and why it is the correct choice:
Algorand is an open-source blockchain platform launched in 2019 by Algorand Foundation.
Algorand is the first-ever permissionless pure proof of stake protocol on the blockchain, and the performance is phenomenal.
The concept of Algorand is to combine mainstream features in a way that well-established cryptocurrencies, such as decentralization, transactions without a central authority would take place. Moreover, easy-to-divide tokens would be considered, with added speed and less computing power necessary to run the system.
With the Algorand Standard Assets (ASA) capability, a fast-paced and low-cost Layer 1 mechanism on the blockchain, artists, musicians, and creators can easily represent any asset on the blockchain. These include art, trading cards, music, and video. It means Algorand blockchain is one the best solution for NFT games.
Algorand’s speed and near-instant transaction finality ensure that something like an in-game purchase won’t disrupt the player experience. Its low cost per transaction (just fractions of a cent) enables participation by a mass consumer base, and the network’s scalability allows applications to accommodate audiences of scale.
Algorand is a forkless blockchain that gives creators the advantage of securing their NFTs and protecting them from duplication. Developers can also access various tools to customize their tokens according to their preferences.
Less Carbon Footprint
One of our primary concerns at RainHero Games is preserving and valuing Nature, and Algorand is one of the blockchains that has outdone itself.
Therefore as a significant selling point for Algorand, unlike the Proof-of-Work algorithm on specific blockchains, Algorand’s pure proof-of-stake protocol is energy-intensive because there is no need for mining. It also makes the Algorand blockchain eco-friendly, putting it ahead of other blockchains.
With benefits such as smooth generation of NFTs, scalability, network speed, great tools, resources, and decreased gaming fees, Rainhero Games will bring all these and a lot more to the Nature Awakens space. Algorand is creating history and trailing blazes in blockchain technology.
