Why Game Cards are valuable crypto assets!

Game Cards are crypto assets that are trade-able, limited in supply and hold value. To understand what crypto assets are, we first need to understand crypto games & hybrid games.

What are Hybrid Crypto games?

Crypto or Blockchain games are the future of gaming. The power of blockchain, cryptocurrency, smart contracts & crypto assets are being utilized by more people every day.
Hybrid crypto games integrate a blockchain wallet into a full-fledged game. CropBytes is a hybrid that enables the game to expand to multiple platforms without any extensions or support apps.
It avoids high transaction fees to users like mainstream blockchain games and is highly scalable. Development process & architecture of hybrid games allow for full feature game-play and high-quality graphic elements with room for player incentivization.

Regular games VS Crypto games

Apart from the architectural differences, Crypto games have an edge over regular games.
You will find in-game purchases & currency in popular titles like PUBG(L-COIN), Farmville (Farm Coins), Call Of Duty (CP), etc. All these games require a buy-in via fiat.The tokens or assets acquired by the buyer are limited to the games ecosystem, are not transferable, and cannot be exchanged back to fiat.
In the case of crypto games, Assets & tokens are tradeable, they can be converted to cryptocurrency and exchanged to fiat.So a player is not tied to a particular game or ecosystem and can withdraw & reinvest his as he pleases. Also, recognition, adoption & usability of blockchain & cryptocurrencies are growing daily, which can help generate earning for players.


Characteristics of Game Cards in CropBytes

Creation (Mining) 👷🏻‍♂️

All assets are bound to each other in the CropBytes ecosystem. Game cards can only be created(mined) when certain animals are fed. The supply of animals is released as per the number of active players & is limited.
They can’t be created any other way.

Melting🔥

Some special assets in CropBytes can be purchased only by exchanging Game Cards. When a player buys such an asset, the amount of GC used will be deducted from the total circulation.
That is the melting of game cards to unlock a higher value asset in the game.

Trade📊

Game cards are trade-able with Tron (TRX), Trading crypto assets and game cards is an integral part of CropBytes. Like any open market, the value of these assets is decided by the market conditions i.e. supply, demand & volume.

Value creation💎

Being limited in supply, and created by player activity, Game Cards are a very unique crypto asset.

The value is decided by market activity (supply, demand & volume) whereas the creation and melting of game cards are based on the number of players, assets at work and player strategy.

The value is always fluctuating with these factors in play. There have been high’s up to 0.98 TRX & some lows as well. At the time of drafting this post, Game Cards are trading at 0.59 TRX.

These superhero abilities will make your farm more productive and improve your earning potential. ⬆️
Be a proud owner of CropBytes superheroes. 😍
Hurry up in grabbing a few from co-players in case you don’t own any.💰

Let’s look at the abilities of superheroes now 👇

 

  • HEALER
      • Helps in recovering animal health quickly.
      • Every Healer in a player’s account will give an additional 0.5 increase in health bars
      • Eg: Player has 2 Healers, so health increases for any animal would be 0.5 + 2 * 0.5 ⇒ 1.5
    • Limit: Max 4 Healers will be considered.

 

  • GREEN
      • Helps in boosting crop production.
      • Every Green in a player’s account will give 2 additional crops per cropland.
      • Eg: Player has 3 Greens, so crop production per square land would be 12 + 6 ⇒ 18
    • Limit: Max 4 Greens will be considered.

 

  • BLOOSM
      • Automatically feeds your animals.
      • Bloosm will feed all your animals & superheroes daily.
      • It ensures that it will feed only once per day.
      • Note: Animals will not be fed if enough feed is not available in the player’s account.
    • Limit: More than 1 Bloosms in the account will not make any difference in feeding.

 

 

  • WATERL
      • Increases water production from lakes and wells.
      • Every Waterl in the player’s account will give an additional 10% of the usual production
      • Eg: Player has 3 Waterl, 1 lake. So water production would be 20 + 3 * 10% (20) ⇒ 26 water buckets
    • Limit: Max 4 Waterl will be considered.

 

  • CHICHU 
      • Increases power generation from solar panels & wind turbines.
      • Since the power generation feature is not yet released, the benefits will be credited in GC (Game Cards).
      • Every Chichu in a player account will give an additional 15% of GC.
      • Eg: Player has 2 Chichu, 1 Wind turbine. So the GC produced would be 30 + 2 * 15% (30) ⇒ 39 GC
    • Limit: Max 4 Chichu will be considered.

 

  • SUPER SUNNY 
      • Automatically feeds your animals.
      • Abilities and terms are the same as Bloosm.

Terms.

Health

Keep in mind the health of superheroes plays a crucial role in their abilities to work. Always keep your superhero’s health bars at the maximum. The abilities will be functional only if the health is 100%. Superheroes with health less than 100% will not be considered.

Feeding

Now the superheroes have to be fed daily to keep their health bars at the maximum. GREEN & WATERL will take 1 unit of carrot feed 🥕 daily.  Other superheroes will take 2 units of carrot feed 🥕 daily (* subject to change). If any superhero is not fed on any day, the health bar will be reduced by 5% (* subject to change). Unlike regular animals, superheroes consume carrot feed on Sundays as well.

Note: Superheroes that are on breeding will continue to take the fruit feed.

Pause & Resume

Are you going on a vacation? Are you running out of carrot feed in your account? Don’t worry about your superhero’s health – you can pause the superhero abilities at any time from the app settings. Remember during a pause, the abilities will not be functional.

terms as below –

  • The pause can be done only if the feeding is given for all superheroes on that day.
  • A resume can be done only after 24hrs from the pause.
  • Superheroes don’t need to be fed when paused.

  • Trees: They just need water, and will produce fruits in 5days.
  • Food grinding mills: Our animals eat ground food, so crops need to be processed. Once your crop or fruits are harvested, you can rent out a mill from other players to grind and convert them into food.
  • Livestock: Animals have health bars, If they are not fed on time, their health will reduce & eventually they will stop producing extracts until you bring them back to health.
