The world of gaming is a fascinating world not just because is allows us to explore an imaginary world on many fronts but also remain entertained.
In the last few years, as Blockchain has grown, the platform has been used to build up games. In a recent, Jelurida announced a Blockchain-based bridge strategy game. The software development firm is keen to launch the strategy game in due course with its date still to be announced.
Jelurida is known for its development platforms, which include Ardor and Nxt. Ardor, a multi-chain proof-of-stake blockchain, is the company’s flagship project. Ardor operates as a parent-and-child structure, with the Ardor main chain securing child chains connected to the platform.
Jelurida launched Ignis as the main child chain of Ardor back in 2018. Now, among its other projects, Ignis will host Bridge Champ, which aims to bring the features of blockchain to the world of online bridge.
Online bridge was already popular among the millions of bridge players worldwide. However, since the coronavirus pandemic has restricted social opportunities, online bridge has proliferated to the point where the American Contract Bridge League reported it had seen a fivefold increase in usage by June 2020.
For the benefit of the uninitiated, bridge is sometimes referred to as the “chess of card games” due to its complexity and sophisticated gameplay.
However, online bridge players are getting a raw deal as two large operators currently dominate the space. With a lack of competition to challenge the sector, it’s now a closed system that isn’t optimized for competitive gameplay and doesn’t support white label solutions.
Now, Jelurida aims to shake things up in collaboration with the Bridge Online Academy – experts in bridge online training. The Swiss blockchain firm is providing the platform and technical know-how, while the Bridge Online Academy brings the know-how of the trick-taking card game and is helping Jelurida build its network in the world of bridge.
