There are various directions for further development of the gaming culture. Traditionally, we get fabulous storylines, expanded virtual worlds packed with numerous creatures and objects, progressive game mechanics to blow even the bravest imagination. Also, there are some new trends in the gaming industry, which open fresh areas for gamers and developers.
One of such trends is making games on the base of a distributed registry. The idea seems to be quite promising, so Paracosm Project will be built on the base of the distributed registry of Tangle. In this article, we clarify this aspect of our platform and service.
The role of innovative gaming technologies for the Paracosm platform and Caer Sidi service is described in the article “VR, AR, and Cross-Reality on the Paracosm Platform”.
The topic of data security is highly discussed nowadays. By using the technology of distributed registry we can protect information from fraud and backdated changes. DRT becomes popular in many areas, such as economics and public administration. Still, there is a point to understand – most gamers don’t really care about even the most progressive methods of protecting their data. Gaming adventures and achievements consist their priority number one, so it’s totally up to developers of games and gaming platforms to put all the necessary efforts and make the experience of end-users perfect to the max.
Distributed registry allows keeping information in many (physical and virtual) places at the same time – this is the magic of decentralization. All the possible changes and additions can be made only by those who really have rights to do so. Unauthorized changes will be rejected. There are no time limitations for keeping information in DRT.
DRT in Paracosmic gaming
Paracosm Project includes a platform to buy games and assets, to start your virtual adventures. All the user data of Paracosm accounts will be written in distributed registry, proving ownership of game licenses and valuable in-game items.
Internal transactions of the Paracosm platform will proceed through the Caer Sidi service with their data also written in the distributed registry – assets will come with the information about all their owners.
Games on the platform also will be connected to distributed registry, so the internal activities will be kept highly protected. That’s a great feature for Esports disciplines, for proving your achievements in various games, and even for specifying origins of in-game items.
We can give you examples of the practical use of DRT in Paracosmic gaming.
- Collectible token games on our platform will write in DRT all the information about playing pieces, flows of the matches and their results. Your tokens of deities from the games “Altar: the War of Gods” and CTG of Post Scriptum will have their real value thanks to this. No cheating will be possible here.
- The role-playing game from the universe of Post Scriptum will be full of various activities. Players will be able to get weapons and items, battle mobs, develop their characters. Everything of this will be written in DRT. Thus, for example, a sword from a time-limited mission will keep info about its source, so this will influence its value.
Our users will be able to create their own museum – to show their friends the most prominent items, to demonstrate their best achievements. Virtual assets in the distributed registry will not depend even on the game, keeping their value after a potential finish of the game support, as amazing relics.
The cost of items will be formed by many factors, such as previous owners (maybe, that was a celebrity) or participation in Esports tournaments (maybe, a champion title was won with that sword). Such things would be impossible without DRT. And this is a super strong basis for the progressive idea of the Internet of things, where virtual objects are tightly connected to their real-world copies.
To enter the zone of trust in the Paracosm community, our users should purchase a Paracosm Key and complete the procedure of KYC.
The final version of the Paracosm platform and Caer Sidi service will be based on the distributed registry of Tangle. Our development team uses Hyperledger Fabric as a temporary solution until the appropriate technology will be developed in cooperation with the IOTA Foundation.
