CryptoBarons was born out of a vision to engage non-technical people with blockchain as they play, buy and trade (transfer) in-game assets in an easy and intuitive way. This way, the adoption and diffusion of blockchain technology is expedited. To achieve this great quest, we made some design decisions like making the purchase of the in-game assets as easy as possible without requiring the hurdle of intermediaries like ‘Metamask’.
Games cannot easily scale on the Ethereum Network. In order to create a game which can scale easily on Blockchain, we built a home grown solution called ThunderNet which is a decentralized storage. Creating player versus player games like CryptoBarons with much more processing and storage need on the Blockchain, shows the true potential of a decentralized application.
