Why Blockchain and NFT Technology is Perfect for the Spellfire CCG
When we were first getting the Spellfire project underway, there were two pieces of technology that were clearly perfectly suited to a modern-day CCG. They were, without doubt, the blockchain and NFTs!
Prior to the gaming industry’s recent developments with blockchain technology, there really was no way to claim digital ownership of in-game items purchased by players. Cards, characters, or avatar skins were all locked into each game’s native marketplace. Players simply didn’t own their in-game assets.
Blockchain technology has allowed us to turn Spellfire’s digital NFT cards into something that players can claim real ownership over, all the while retaining a real-world value. They can be traded or sold on any digital-asset marketplace with ownership of each card securely recorded on the blockchain.
These innovations are already starting to receive mainstream recognition, and we think widespread adoption is not far behind. The CEOs of gaming giants EA and Ubisoft, both namechecked the technology in recent earnings calls.
Andrew Wilson of EA stated that NFT and blockchain games are “the future of our industry”, whilst Yves Guillemot of Ubisoft was quoted as saying the blockchain would “enable more players to actually earn content, own content, and we think it’s going to grow the industry quite a lot”.
These are big cosigns for a rapidly developing market, and Spellfire is already leading the way! In addition to truly owning each card, our players will be able to generate revenue from the game they love!
For this reason, we have designed our Play-to-Earn systems to be as frictionless as possible. In addition to trading cards on digital-asset marketplaces, our players are able to earn passively through additional sales of the Original NFT cards they own, retaining up to 90% of all profits!
