A couple of online games, namely Moonga and Spells of Genesis, have sought to integrate bitcoin payments in their features. Moonga is an online trading card game compatible with iOS and Android operating systems which was released in 2010 while Spells of Genesis is a trading arcade card game.
Spells of Genesis is a pure crypto online gaming experience, and they are releasing crypto cards that will work like assets which can be traded at the Counterparty platform. The game has approximately 50,000 users and makes use of the similar gaming approach to the more popular Magic: The Gathering.

The new release will allow users to make use of bitcoin and blockchain technology in the game’s economy and story. With this move, Moonga will be introducing cryptocurrencies to a fresh new set of people while being able to promote digital currency awareness as well. To aid this launch, developers are conducting a token sale this month via Koinify.
The Counterparty platform is going to be used to issue the cards in the game, allowing Spells of Genesis users to leverage counterparty assets to represent cards in the game. Players will be able to create these cards as counterparty assets and then when they log into the game, they will be able to import these Counterparty Assets into the game and then use them to play.
The Spells of Genesis team made a partnership with FoldingCoin, providing 100,000 free BitCrystals and 300 trading cards towards their Merged Folding Platform, assisting in the computational development of vital medicines. BitCrystals are divisible tokens which serve as the in-game game currency for Spells of Genesis.
Game assets in Spells of Genesis will all be assigned a unique Counterparty token. Assigning Counterparty tokens to game assets allows them to be traded freely outside the game. Players will own their game items and cards not only in the game world but also on the blockchain.
