Magic Academy – World’s First Idle Blockchain Game on the Tron Network
Tron recently launched the world’s first idle blockchain game – Magic Academy. The news was revealed in a blog post on the company’s medium account. The game has been developed by BitGuild, a company with the aim of redefining the standards of interaction between players and their games, by facilitating true item ownership.
According to the blogpost –
“Blockchain games completely redefine the relationship between players and developers by facilitating full and true ownership of in-game assets, cheap & safe item trading, cross-game compatibility of items & currency, and more.”
The game will involve the usage of mineable TRC20 tokens called Jade. The currency will be upgraded by buying wizards, warriors, and upgrading items. The purchase of warriors will increase players’ battle power. With more battle power and related items, players can attack other players and steal their Jade.
The Magic Academy will also have rare item prizes based on TRC721 tokens, which will increase players’ battle power tremendously. These rare item prizes can be traded freely among players and the prize will increase 25% each time. Currently, the game is available in English and Chinese languages.
