Peter Huang: From Adobe to Egretia, restart with technology

By ITerduo 耳朵财经

Peter Huang, the founder of Egretia, is an entrepreneur and a veteran in the game industry. He founded 1D, a music community that uses Flash technology to allow users to sing and play games together. It happened before people knew about online games. However, the market was not ready for this type of community.

In 2010, Peter joined Adobe as a platform technology manager and was responsible for Flash technology promotion and monetization over online traffic. At that time, there were a number of teams working on H5 technology using PCs; however, because different browsers were not compatible, all of the teams had a hard time. Later on, in 2011, Peter came across Bitcoin. In 2014, Peter joined Egret Technology as a co-founder, and devoted himself into the H5 industry.

At the end of 2017, Peter utilized both H5 and blockchain technology to start the Egretia project. Technology-wise, Egretia partners with Egret Technology to bring 200,000 developers and 1 billion HTML5 terminals to the blockchain world.

As a veteran in the Internet industry, Peter thinks the adoption of new technology needs to go through a long process. Before, in the H5 sector, people were forcing users to use this technology, and this kind of pushy behavior did not promote the real development of this technology. Today, after four years of evolution, Facebook, WeChat, QQ, and other prominent social media platforms all offer H5 game support. The HTML5 industry has finally taken off.

 

Restart with the technology

Egretia embraces the blockchain industry with Peter Huang and his team, and the technology from its partner Egret Technology.

Egret Technology obtained funding from Shunwei Capital, Shenzhen Venture Capital, and Matrix Partners. In 2014, the game “Catch the Crazy Cat,” which was developed using Egret engine, set fire on WeChat. It was shared more than 200 million times within a day, which resulted in WeChat coming up with new rules and regulations.

The Egret team gradually improved the idea that Peter had while working for Adobe, a skeletal animation tool called Dragon Bones. Last year at the Geneva Conference, Dragon Bones was set as the mobile animation standard of International Telecommunication Union. According to Peter, there are more than 16,000 Dragon Bones tutorial videos produced by users all over the world on YouTube.

Blockchain is a brand-new industry; most blockchain game projects start from scratch. However, when Egretia started to work on the H5 blockchain game platform, it began with previously accumulated technology.

The year that the Egretia project started was the year that H5 mini-games soared. Peter expressed that, despite what people said in previous years, it is more appropriate to regard 2017 as the first year of H5 mini-games.

At the end of 2017, Facebook Messenger, which had more than 1 billion daily active users, started to develop casual mini-games and quickly launched in-app advertising and payment. “This is a repeat of the history of social web games on mobile devices,” Peter said, “It was like the Happy Farm game in the past.”

Immediately afterward, WeChat released a mini-game platform. Currently, there are more than 600 games on this platform; half of which are based on the Egret engine, and almost 40% of the games on Facebook Messenger are based on Egret engine.

When it comes to the development progress of the public H5 game blockchain, the Egret test chain will be released shortly. Peter believes that there are many problems to consider when developing a public game blockchain. From the test chain, to launching a stable blockchain, it takes at least a year to test and improve it. According to the roadmap, Egretia will release workflow based on ERC20 in June, which will be world’s first public blockchain that publishes a complete workflow.

The public game blockchain needs a distribution center and wallet

Because of the game’s social attributes, paid props, and other settings, the public game blockchain will also carry these elements accordingly. In addition to developing a public blockchain, Peter thinks that the blockchain game industry also needs game distribution centers and wallets.

Although distribution centers sound like they are against the decentralized concept of the blockchain, however, the distribution centers here are like communities. Users can interact with each other, explore, and share fun games. These centers are not like application stores, like the Apple Store. The social part of blockchain communities are in line with games and is very suitable for the promotion of games.

When there are sufficient applications of the public blockchain, and adequate users, there will be a need for advertisement. The need can be satisfied using Egretia’s tokens. The token mechanism facilitates the integration of transactions and is suitable for circulation. This model has already been implemented by some peers; the game distribution center is very valuable.

When it comes to public blockchain and games, the wallet is an essential part of dealing with the bottleneck situation about user payment methods. The attributes of the wallet make it naturally suitable for being a distribution center.

Peter expressed that, Egretia wanted to try its best to let tokens circulate among gamers, developers, channels, and advertisers. This ecology cannot be accomplished by one company; it needs the whole industry to work together. Egretia will always be open-minded about collaboration and share no effort to promote the development of the industry.

If what was mentioned above can be achieved, the tool engine platform will be firmly linked with developers in the process of development, publication, and promotion.

Before the electronic game era, the most-played games are decentralized games.

“When we don’t have electronic games to play, the most-played games are decentralized games.” told by Peter.

When friends play games together, a “consensus” is reached about the rules and almost never changes. It is unlike the electronic game era, where operators organize events and set the rules.

In Peter’s view, social relationships have always been one of the critical factors that can make a game a hit. In the blockchain industry, future popular blockchain games must be based on users’ social relationships and have open-ended rules.

The traditional game world is still an inflationary world. Even if gamers play a lot to complete missions, someone could beat these hard-working players easily just by spending a lot of money, and this doesn’t seem like a fair world.

In addition, the nature of the blockchain itself also changes the design of the economic model in the game. For example, if the game operator creates ten special props, what will happen after the ten props are sold? It would work better if users can set the rules about creating a particular prop and charge a transaction fee, just like there is an expense to circulate CryptoKitties. Besides that, the operators can give out unique awards, and can also organize game events and charge admission fees.

From prospects of the game itself, developers, and the industry, there will be a lot of new opportunities.

When talking about how the Ethereum network was jammed up because people rushed to buy CryptoKitties, Peter thinks that people should not focus too much on the current situation of the blockchain industry. At any time, there will be games that belong to this particular era, before electronic games were developed, there were games like jump rope and ping pong. In the age of the 2G mobile network, people could not play 4G network games.

Blockchain gives everyone a lot of room for imagination. Many business models are excellent, but it always takes a while to put the technology into practical use, and this requires everyone to explore. The game industry belongs to the virtual economy, relatively speaking, tokenizing the game industry will face less resistance. However, when it comes to projects that are related to the real economy, there will be more resistance.

The last missionary in the world for Flash

Speaking of the declining Flash technology, Peter recalled that the time between 2010 and 2014 was the most prosperous time for this technology. Since then, Flash has begun to decline. When talking about the reasons that Flash lost popularity, Peter believes that when Flash was popular, it was installed more than 1.4 billion times, but Flash barely made any money, which indicates that there were problems with the business model.

Two key factors of the Internet are traffic and users. Flash didn’t successfully convert its traffic into users. The traffic that did not turn into users was like the stars of the sky, which looked pretty but was not relevant.

Today, Flash is also running some experimental projects in China. Flash updates will be bundled with Flash assistants and Flash will control the distribution of unauthorized copies. Peter is also moving these projects forward.

Peter felt sorry about Flash, and he called himself “the last missionary in the world for Flash”.

What will happen when HTML5 technology meets blockchain technology? What kind of revolution will the game industry face?

By Tencent 腾讯科技

Introduction:

Since the beginning of 2018, blockchain has become a hot topic thanks to the surge of the Shenzhen A-Share market. However, in the face of the recent extended limit of concept stocks, many people who were previously hoping to enter the blockchain market now have cold feet.

Why is the blockchain market so heated? Is it a new opportunity or a bubble waiting to burst? What do insiders think of it all?

To this end, Blockchain Inspectors (区块链探长) have invited several industry experts to share their stories about the ups and downs of the industry, share their opinions, and give future industry rookies some advice.

Today’s guest is Peter Huang, founder of Egretia. The following is organized according to an interview with Huang.

Foreword:

From stand-alone to web-based, from web-based to page-based,and from page-based to mobile, every wave of platform change has brought great opportunity to the game industry. The mobile game industry is currently becoming more and more competitive. In the “Red Sea Era” where competition in the mobile game industry has become increasingly fierce and resources have become more concentrated, HTML5 technology is an emerging industry that has created brand-new space for mobile game developers. This is attributed to the unique advantages of HTML5 technology such as powerful cross-platform capabilities, click-to-play convenience, virus propagation characteristics, and continuous improvement of engines and tools.

However, despite the rapid development of HTML5 games, there are many problems. Its shortcomings include lack of transparency in the probability of encountering a specific prop and difficulty in circulating virtual game assets among games. Blockchain technology is decentralized, secure, transparent, non-destructive, and traceable. These features make blockchain technology naturally suited to solve problems within the HTML5 industry.

The Egretia platform aims to address the fundamental shortcomings of the HTML5 industry by creating the world’s first complete HTML5 blockchain development workflow and helping developers create blockchain applications.

Egretia: Bringing 200,000 Developers and 1 Billion Mobile Devices To the Blockchain World

Egretia, the world’s first HTML5 blockchain platform, is partnering with Egret Technology to bring Egret Technology’s existing 200,000 developers and more than 1 billion mobile devices to the blockchain world.

Peter Huang, the founder of Egretia, said, “Egretia has a well-developed tool flow that includes fourteen tools. What Egretia wants to do is to integrate existing tools and blockchain technology to create a blockchain world for HTML5. This will allow developers to quickly create blockchain games. For these developers, integrating with blockchain technology would be as easy as integrating with a payment interface or a channel.”

Egretia began developing in the middle of last year. At present, it plans to release test blockchains and testing tools at the end of the second quarter.

Focusing on Technology Development and Promoting Application

When describing the reasoning for creating the HTML5 blockchain platform, Egretia, Huang listed out three primary reasons:

1. His judgment of technology development trends.

According to Huang, the decision to work with blockchain technology was similar to his decision to work on HTML5 a few years ago — both were made based on his judgment of the future trend of technology. As early as 2013 and 2014, Huang and his team began work on HTML5 technology with faith in its future trend projection based on the network environment at the time, the support level of hardware and software devices, and HTML5.

Huang say that he began work on blockchain technology with the belief that blockchain would be the direction for future long-term development.

He said,“We’re working on tool engines, so why don’t we make them to support new technologies?”

2. Putting applications into practical use is the basis for the value of technology.

When we look back at the development process of HTML5 technology, we realize that in order for technology to fully realize its value, we have to promote applications for practical use. Huang thinks that initially HTMLS games were very basic, but now they are diverse and sophisticated. They have evolved from small to large, from quantitative to qualitative. And the same goes for blockchain as well. As technology matures, the market will see a huge demand for DApp, and getting new applications on the market will be a major concern for developers.

“Ultimately, technology needs to be put into practical scenarios and environments. Regardless if it is to meet market demand or to expand application scenarios, it is essential for the technology to interact with real-life users. For example, in order to make tokens circulate, it is not enough for them to only circulate in token exchanges. They have to reach a majority of target users,” says Huang.

3. Applications can be ready to hit the market when there is a large number of developers helping to construct the ecology.

Huang continued: “If you want applications to quickly hit the market, we have to attract and motivate developers and let them work on related applications on their own initiative.” He knows that if you want developers to use a specific set of tools then the key is the effectiveness of the tool set and if the tool set will help developers work more efficiently. The reason that Egretia is integrating Egret Technology’s existing tools with blockchain technology is that their set of existing tools is easy to use and has already attracted a large group of users.

Further, developers are concerned about the efficiency of development because efficiency affects the cost. The shorter the development time, the better it is to control the risk of the project. Thus, the Egretia platform will provide a complete and fast workflow to help developers quickly develop applications.

Developing Egretia Public Blockchain to Target the Game Industry

It is a huge challenge for a team to develop an independent, public blockchain. The team needs to have experience in doing parallel processing and distributed architecture, and they also have to consider issues of blockchain security. So why did Egretia decide to build its own independent, public blockchain?

Huang expressed that the reason Egretia developed its own public blockchain is that, in light of unique features of the game industry, blockchain needed some updating and required som e iterations to be done. Although Ethereum is a very mature and stable public blockchain, it is not directed at the vertical industry. Ethereum cannot meet needs of the game industry.

“Egretia will gradually improve its public blockchain according to the needs of game industry. In addition, Egretia’s vision isn’t limited to only supporting its own blockchain. During the development process, if there are other public blockchains released that are suitable for the game industry, Egretia would embrace them too,” says Huang.

Build an Ecosystem Using Tokens as Motivation

When asked why Tokens are necessary, Huang explained that he wanted to use tokens to build an ecosystem. He says: “What is the circulation system we want to create? Not only is it for developers, but we can reward tool creators and users alike using tokens.”

For developers, if there is a promising project, Egretia can us Tokens to support and invest in the developers. And when developers finish producing quality content they can receive tokens. Further, developers can get tokens that are paid out by users, and the tokens they receive could then be used for advertisement or for purchasing plug-ins. Developers can also publish their own tokens based on platforms like Ethereum.

For tool developers, if they can provide game developers with a quality plug-in to increase the efficiency of development, then Egretia would reward them with tokens.

For users, if they click on advertisements in the game, they would be rewarded with tokens as well, and could then use these tokens to purchase props.

Egretia wants to use Token to create an ecosystem between developers and users and also between developers and tool creators. When the ecosystem becomes more prosperous, Tokens will begin to circulate on the Egretia platform, thus creating a positive cycle between developers, tool creators, and users.

A Complete Blockchain Game Consists of Three Aspects.

Peter claimed: “a complete blockchain game should consist of three aspects: 1) core rules in the chain; 2) core assets in the chain; and, 3) Tokens as the supported means of payment.”

“Nowadays, most game rules are set by game operators, and although the rules are public, many players consider the rules to be unfair. Game operators might organize a few events to encourage players to buy, buy, buy, but after players purchase the props, the value of the props depreciates,” says Huang. Huang believes that in blockchain, rules are written on smart contracts and cannot be tampered with, thereby ensuring players’ full autonomy of the game and ultimately making the game more fair.

In blockchain games like Crypto Kitties, each cat is unique which, in turn, increases the value of each cat. The more time a player spends playing the game, the more valuable that player’s assets become. When the core assets are written on the blockchain, for example, skins and props that can be used in a game like Crypto Kitties, the value of these core assets is preserved.

In the past, many online games had the problem of transaction risk and asset devaluation. However, in blockchain games, since the value recognized by the players is constantly being written on the blockchain, players can preserve the value of their assets when conducting transactions. Huang believes that this can protect players’ accumulated value throughout the life cycle of the game and, in turn, increase player loyalty.

Blockchain is the Future, But it Cannot Be Accomplished Overnight

When talking about the outlook of blockchain’s future development, Huang says: “blockchain is the way of the future, but people should not expect for everything to be accomplished overnight. Don’t rush the industry to develop. Just as the game industry developed from web games to mobile games to HTML5 games, people should look at the blockchain industry with a peace of mind instead of trying to force change.”

With the iteration of games, content will gradually become more enriched, and the entire ecology will mature. According to Huang, looking at the development of HTML5 games one can see how they have undergone a tremendous evolution from very simple to much more diverse and complex. “For HTML5 in the beginning, good developers were not yet engaged, but over time more and more outstanding teams have entered the industry. We now realize that games like this can be created.”

When it comes to the future development of blockchain games, Huang believes that it is the same as HTML5 games — it will continue to iterate and improve over time.” “When we look at Crypto Kitties, the graphics aren’t great and the game logic is simple. But as time goes by, there will be more and more developers joining the industry, and game content will become increasingly rich and diverse.”

From web games to mobile games to HTML5 games, each iteration has promoted the development of game content and the improvement of the industry’s ecosystem. Blockchain technology is the major development trend of the future. As blockchain technology matures, there will be a higher demand in the market for DApp. Nowadays, there are many projects focused on blockchain that need to get their applications up and running as soon as possible. This is Egretia’s opinion about the future market. Egretia’s founder, Peter Huang, expressed his opinion that the development of one industry does not happen overnight, so industry development should not be rushed. As long as more quality teams and developers are joining the industry, the industry will definitely see progress in development.

An Innovative Partnership Unleashes the Gaming Power of HTML5 and Blockchain

By Inc.

HTML5 and blockchain could be a game-changing combination for gaming. Now, an innovative partnership provides a smoother road to widespread adoption.

 

HTML5 has revolutionized gaming. In addition to improving the look, performance and overall user experience, HTML5 games, videos, music and apps are click-and-play. Anyone with a device can play and share HTML5 games with friends through social media and other platforms. HTML5 gamers make up 47 percent of all mobile game users.

However, when it comes to the gaming world, HTML5 has its flaws. Security and intellectual property protection are nightmares for developers. There are few mechanisms to ensure game fairness and protect the value of virtual assets. Back-end communication is difficult. And there is no leading marketplace or global, unified secure payment platform for app users and developers to conduct transactions.

After the blockchain game CryptoKitties skyrocketed to popularity, Ethereum’s smart contract applications added HTML5 games. Blockchain applications aren’t widely adopted, but combining blockchain and HTML5 could both expand reach and offer solutions to the issues that plague HTML5 games.

Egretia, the world’s first HTML5 blockchain engine and platform, has teamed up with Egret Technology, a global HTML5 technology service provider who has focused on HTML5 technology for more than four years. The collaboration brings Egret Technology’s existing 200,000 developers and 1 billion mobile terminal devices into the blockchain world. This end-to-end ecosystem provides a seamless, safe, and easy-to-use experience for gamers, developers, and advertisers, plus a platform to unite them. And the benefits to each are significant.

Secure payment and exchanges: Egretia provides users with a low-threshold, high-security digital wallet, making Egretia a safe payment platform for all HTML5 blockchain applications. Digital tokens, called Egreten, truly circulate within the ecosystem and can also easily be combined with games, allowing gamers to trade virtual goods, make transactions, and manage tokens with their wallets.

Seamless, multifunctional development: Developers who agonize over the IP, communication, and distribution concerns will now have access to a secure development suite with four core products and an incubator. Not only can they create blockchain applications quickly within the Egretia development suite, they will also get access to key services such as game distribution, advertising, trading, storage, and communication.

Open, fair, and transparent data: Gamers are often skeptical of the gaming industry and the falling probability of virtual goods used to increase revenue. This issue has even inspired regulators to take action in some markets. Through the Egretia Data API, game developers can write and store their core data logic, game transaction information, and game equipment values on the blockchain, making it transparent. Players can view the game numerical information at any time, and trust is restored.

A marketplace: At last, developers, gamers, advertisers, app-buyers, and others will have a single, leading place to unite and conduct transactions. Know Your Customer (KYC) certification encrypts and stores user information on the blockchain, allowing them to conduct business across the development suite and platform.

It’s a bold plan, but Egretia Blockchain Lab could be a game-changer. Providing one solution for all stakeholders to connect, communicate, and transact business easily and transparently, it could very well be the platform that unchains the combined power of HTML5 and blockchain.

Gaming Industry Evolves With First HTML5 Blockchain Platform

By Bitcoinist

Egretia has teamed up with Egret Technologies, the leading HTML5 company in the world which has a complete development workflow, to combine its products with blockchain technology. It should add several new features to the HTML5 technology, including a payment system and more efficient promotion. With Egret’s tools, Egretia is aimed at bringing two hundred thousand developers and one billion mobile devices to the blockchain world.

Egret Technology became a prominent player in the HTML5 gaming market in 2014 and has managed to create an entire development kit ever since, integrating a community of more than two hundred thousand developers. According to official data, Egret’s products are used on one billion devices. The company also has the largest HTML5 gaming platform with more than 65,000 games and 40 million monthly active users.

Recently Egret became a strategic partner of the Egretia project, targeted at making blockchain a solution to boost the further growth of the HTML5 gaming industry.

Egretia is devoted to creating the world’s first complete HTML5 blockchain engine and development kit. The platform will use its own Egreten token for transactions. Other core elements of the Egretia ecosystem include a distributed communications and storage platform, a global distribution platform, virtual goods trading platform, and an advertising platform. Egretia will also establish an incubator to support game development teams and individuals.

EGRETIA PUBLIC CHAIN

Egretia has created its own public chain to implement into Egret’s existing development suite.

The Egretia platform utilizes the Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) consensus mechanism to optimize HTML5 game performance. DPoS helps achieve higher processing power. Moreover, Egretia allows for the dynamic adjustment of parameters like block size, output speed, and handling fees through the consensus voting method.

Egretia offers a software development kit (SDK) with engine and tools, which will allow HTML5 games to “easily” access the blockchain. With the help of Know Your Customer (KYC) certification, users’ key information will be stored in the blockchain. It also provides data storage, data communication, and authentication services, gives access to the digital wallet, and allows creating a smart contract.

The Egretia blockchain uses the Egreten token for all transactions and payments.

EGRETEN TOKEN

The Egreten token has different functions. It is intended for buying in-game items and for paying for content by users. They also get Egreten as a reward through participating in crowdfunding of games on Egretia.

Developers can use tokens to promote their products. Alternatively, distributors can receive Egreten through content distribution and advertising.

To store Egreten tokens, Egretia claims it will introduce a digital wallet on each user’s unique token passport. There will be PC, mobile, and browser versions of the wallet introduced.

VIRTUAL GOODS TRADING PLATFORM

HTML5 games connect the in-game virtual goods to the trading platform via the Egretia SDK. Using the platform players can sell virtual goods of a certain game in exchange for Egreten, as well as buy items. For blockchain traceability, traders can view historical transaction records of virtual goods at any time.

DECENTRALIZED ADVERTISING PLATFORM

As an Egretia representative says, their platform gives “broad” opportunities for advertising after KYC principles.

Developers may launch promotion campaigns on the Egretia platform, paying with Egreten. They may also integrate advertisements in their content through Egretia SDK to gain additional Egreten. In turn, developers use tokens to promote their apps among users.

Players earn Egreten tokens by forwarding ads.

GAME GLOBAL DISTRIBUTION PLATFORM

Egretia brings blockchain to the broad Egret game platform with more than 40 million monthly active users. Each player gets a unique ID by KYC when playing all the games on the platform. Users get a certain amount of Egreten tokens depending on the duration of play and level of experience. Game developers get Egreten by operating games.

To attract new players, developers can independently release tasks encouraging players to spread games and receive Egreten tokens as a reward for completing goals.

COMMUNICATIONS AND STORAGE CLOUD PLATFORM

Egretia makes an HTML5 service powered by blockchain technology to provide the decentralized server-side, distributed communication and storage. Using SDK, developers can simply access Egretia communication services to set up online multiplayer, data storage, and back-end game logic customization.

Egretia states it will cooperate with more third-party public chains to offer developers more comprehensive communications and storage services. Due to blockchain specifics, more content leads to a wider distribution of server nodes.

Bitan Interview | Bring 200,000 Developers and one billion mobile terminals into the blockchain world.

Egretia has combined existing H5 technology and the production tool to create a complete blockchain game development tool. By using the set of Egretia tools, developers can rapidly create blockchain games without having to fully understand the complex technology implemented on the bottom layer. Also, the development tool could connect the virtual asset in blockchain games. Egretia, together with the world’s leading H5 technology provider, Egret Technology, aims to bring 200,000 developers and one billion mobile terminals into the blockchain world. In this “Bitan Interview”, we invited the founder of Egretia, Mr. Huang Jun, to talk about what revolutions Egretia will bring.

1. Huang, I see you have many years of Internet product and gaming project R&D management experience. How did you come into contact with the Blockchain industry?

Huang Jun: I came across the blockchain industry around 2012. I have some old friends who work with software and hardware technology, and they invested in Bitcoin in its early stages, so I have been familiar with Bitcoin and blockchain since 2012. However, at that time, I had not formed a complete opinion about it.

2. Why did you start the Egretia project?

Huang Jun: I was working at Adobe in 2014 and because I was so optimistic about the development of HTML5 technology, I joined Egret technology. Four years ago, our opinion regarding the development of H5 games was that H5 gaming certainly could have better performance on the mobile platform. Earlier this year, Tencent, Facebook, and other internet giants all had a H5 game line. So our initial judgment about HTML5 was correct.

We had following reasons to start Egretia:

The first reason is based on our judgment regarding the trend of technology. The entire Blockchain market is still at an early stage. Starting Egretia now, a blockchain gaming technology service provider, seems relatively early, but we feel that this is a promising direction to take. Any and every technology will go through a long process from its birth to its rise in popularity. I do believe Blockchain technology is the trend of the future. If we just put enough energy and time into it, then we will certainly see blockchain technology grow in popularity.

The second reason is that we need to see how a new technique can realize value. When the game “Catching Crazy Cats” was coming up as the front-runner of the first batch HTML5 games, we saw that the basic concept of the game was very simple. Then later, the type of game and rule became more and more diversified, even gradually developing into more complex, multiplayer games. Throughout the whole development process, content grew from less content to more, shifting from “the nature” to”the quantity”. So with in the same train of thought, along with the development of blockchain technologies also came the improvement of the ecological environment.. There will be a large number of requirements for DApps on the market. Today, there are a lot of projects to on the chain,and the biggest need is to have a real product as soon as possible.

The third reason is that we should have plenty of developers to help build the ecological environment. Since the creation of Egret, we have always had one goal, and that is to create a complete workflow environment for development as well as provide easy-to-use tools as a one-stop solution for developers. After just four years of development, Egret now has over 200,000 developers across the world and Egret engine tools have already covered more than 1 billion mobile terminal equipment units.

What is Egretia’s goal? Our slogan is to bring 200,000 Developers and one billion mobile terminals into the Blockchain world. Egret posseses mature and refined tools, comprising of 14 tools total. Through combining our existing tools and Blockchain technologies, we have sealed the complex APIs and chains in the background, greatly enhancing development efficiency.

Developers can use their existing knowledge and skills, and do not need to spend too much energy and time in studying this complex new technology. Developers can focus more on developing fun DApps and let Egretia do the dirty work of complex tasks.

What’s the value of doing these things? We observed that no matter what kind of new technology, it will require content and application to drive its growth. Why is VR/AR less popular now? The reason is that its technology is not friendly enough to developers, resulting in scarcity of content and an inability to have a complete and healthy ecological environment.

Blockchain industry and technology will become more valuable as more apps come up. When tokens truly have users, it will then be able to liquidate in the market. Otherwise, the Token is only in the exchange, and there is no way it could cover the majority of the target users.

3. In the white papers, it mentioned the various roles Egretia Token has played within the system. A very important function is that it replaced the current game industry payment system. What problems does this resolve for the ecological participant?

Huang Jun: We will use Tokens within the Egretia system to build a complete economic system. For developers, if they have a good project, we can support and incubate it within our official Token. If they produce good content, eventually they can get Token from users. For the users, if he/she finds an interesting game, he/she can use the Token to support it, which is also a sort of recognition for the Developers. From the complete tool perspective, we will open-source our API so that everyone can help us improve the tools. As long as you provide constructive criticism to us, you will get official Token rewards. Ultimately, once our ecology become more prosperous , Token will be liquidated on the Egretia platform. At present, our primary task is to build the existing tools using blockchain technology, allowing developers to quickly produce more high-quality content that could become the next super-star game.

4.Egretia as a game development tool and service provider will be involved in the economic field of the entire game industry, and can even be considered to penetrate to the interior of the gaming economy. Do game developers and operators have any concerns about this?

Huang Jun: I think for game developers and operators, they do not need to have concerns since we only offer value-added services. Why is it that most developers, after developing an Android version, also want to develop an IOS version? It is because they are hoping to reach more users. If their product in certain channels have been validated and well-received, why not put these products through Egretia, a convenient development channel, to the blockchain users? This is value-added service for them. They not only get extra Token but also accumulate more users. Developers will eventuallyfind that using blockchain technology and smart contracts can produce a truly fair game. I feel that developers will welcome this new channel and will enjoy using this new technology to contact more users.

5. If the Token could be widely used in all areas, it would certainly be more convenient for the users. But it might have some effects such as the disappearance of the current funding entrance but players’ asset liquidity would, on the other hand, be greatly enhanced. What are the advantages and disadvantages of the Tokken towards users and the industry? What do you think of these?

Huang Jun: I think Token will definitely have an impact on the entire industry, and the use of district blockchain technology will certainly change the traditional channels of communication. Traditional channels of communication, in reality, is a monopoly market, a centralized market. And if we are able to use blockchain technology to truly achieve decentralization, then the whole industry will be driven by the contents user’s really enjoy. This is no doubt a very healthy development trend.

Blockchain technology’s impact is very broad and not just limited to the gaming industry. I have seen a lot of companies use the blockchain technology that IBM provides to enable companies to operate more efficiently while reducing waste resources. I believe that in the future we will see more and more great products and more and more practical applications accepted by the companies. They should grow in profit through this process.

6. The design of Egretia, also referred to as various virtual assets stored in a wallet, would involve large amounts of data being stored on the chain. Will this cause problems in efficiency and storage capacity?

Huang Jun: No matter whether for gaming or public chain, TPS, or the speed of the transaction, is the primary problem we need to solve. I think there are a few steps for this:

The first step is, a lot of the games developers make are merely payment connected, and you can buy simple items such as resurrection cards, magic cards, etc.

The second step — connect the core assets to the blockchain. By doing this, the total number of assets will not be able to be easily changed and the issue of fairness of the game will be resolved.

We are currently testing our internal network and have reached nearly 3000 TPS, a speed fully capable of supporting a large number of transactions within the games. The next step for when we reach a better and faster computing power is to put the game logic into the smart contract. For certain types of games, chess for example, fairness is very important and so we can put its game logic on the blockchain and place it inside the smart contract.

I personally prefer step-by-step to achieve a variety of functions. When H5 technology and games were just coming out, we all thought that “Catch Crazy Cat,” this kind of product, couldn’t be called a true “game” since its rules are very simple and the graphics are very basic. Including — and especially — the first blockchain game “Crypto Cats,” we also feel like this cannot be called a real game. However, technical development is an iterative process. Just like for original website games, beginning with car parking games, stealing food games, then developing into interactive games, and then later 3-D page games. All technical and content development will go through a gradual, evolutionary process.

Blockchain technology is able to resolve some long-standing problems in the gaming industry, such as “opaque data.” Although current blockchain technology is not a perfect solution, I am very optimistic about its future. There will be more and more Blockchain-based content being developed to improve content on demand and even improve the performance of the blockchain. Why Bitcoin fork? What’s the next generation of Ethereum? What problems does EOS super node solve? It is because we have real needs and these needs drive the technology progress. With more and more applications popping up, users’ demand will increase too. Projects, including Egretia, will gradually iterate and improve. Rome is not built in one night.

7. The White Paper mentions that players can mine the token. What can you tell us about this mechanism?

Huang Jun: This is an idea somewhat similar to an incentive mechanism for the community or the player. Our initial thought is to have an algorithm that incentivizes users base on live time. Of course, after our chain goes online, we may provide relevant software solutions or hardware solutions, but for now the plan has not been finalized yet.

8.Egretia’s incentive mechanism is POG. Will it have an incentivation problem?

Huang Chun: This is exactly what we need to pay attention to to try and avoid. We will design a good standard and judgment mechanism. If a Token and some points have a certain exchange relationship, then users may use this relationship incentivize more points in exchange for more Tokens. This is what the front-end and back-end must solve. But the entire industry is facing the same problem as well.

9. Why does Egretia want to build their own chain? Similar DPOS-using mechanisms have EOS and BTS, and so, why not just choose one of them?

Huang Jun: First of all, our strength is to provide front-end and back-end services and create the workflow. Our tools, SDK, and cloud services will support the mainstream public chain, such as EOS, Ethereum, and so on. Our vision is not only to support our own chains.

So why do we want to do it ourselves? Because we need to improve some features, particularly for the game industry. Ethereum is a mature and stable chain, so why not just do it on top of it? Operationally Ethereum is fine, but for games, we have found that it cannot meet certain requirements, so it is better to re-design a chain specifically for the gaming industry.

Based on the demand from the gaming industry, we will gradually perfect Egretia’s public chain. I have developed a process which, if there are other chains issued that are very suitable to the gaming industry, we will consider it. Our front-end and back-end technology could quickly access the chain.

10. Egretia plans to give the game server-side access to the network and become a blockchain node. Will this increase the input costs?

Huang Chun: This is the service we wanted to offer to aim at reducing costs for small and medium teams. Big development teams can build servers for themselves but many small and medium developers may prefer to access existing back-end services. Our partners, or us ourselves, can provide more convenient service. For example, those who develop a multiplayer game could quickly connect to the nearest server to ensure a better user experience.

11. The reform Egretia brings to the game developer is not just for technology. Since there is no developed method to allow for centralized service access to the blockchain, developers might need to consider transitions in the development process, too. In addition to providing a convenient development tool what else can Egretia provide?

Huang Chun: We will maintain long-term communication with our developers, including social and technical forums where members can learn from each other. We will also organize periodic blockchain game conferences everyone can work together to understand the future of blockchain games.

In the blockchain industry, just talking about empty concepts cannot bring about real growth. We need to explore together and and push to further the entire industry. We will also support a number of high-quality business developer teams, and thus contribute to the blockchain applications. We are currently planning to organize a blockchain gaming conference in late May, and after that other countries will have similar conferences too. We hope to gather more developers to push the development of the industry.

12. For blockchain gaming, maybe due to the industry’s threshold, users are typically people from the coin world. There are not many traditional game players coming in. Do you have any solutions to this problem?

Huang Wei: I think users need a guided process. Players in the coin world may have some intersection with traditional game players, but that’s not absolute. The most important thing is how to design a game for users in the coin world based on their special characteristics. For traditional game players, how to solve their understanding of Token and how to provide them with more convenient Token payment methods.

At present, users need to install wallets to play games. After the wallet is installed, where Token comes from, how to get an airdrop, how to go to the exchange, and so on, the users do not understand. In this case, the entire industry does not actually open to the public. And getting through this whole process requires the collaboration of the entire industry. This is also what we want to do in the future. We will work with wallets and exchanges. Users who are not in the coin world can also have a better experience and use Token more smoothly.

13. Recently, Cocos2D and Unity3D both stated that they are willing to enter the blockchain industry. Are they competitors of Egretia? What is your view on their move into the blockchain sphere?

Huang Hao: If there is no competition in the industry, then it means that the industry simply will not flourish. I think that competition is a good thing. Cocos2D is an old brand for many years. And for Unity3D, no matter if you’re looking at their product or business model, they’re great at both. Unity is also working with third parties to introduce the Token mechanism. I think these are all positive signals. We are very open about this kind of competition. It requires competition to be able to make yourself better. More and more people want to do this, indicating that this industry is doing well and the is are moving in the right.

14. The roadmap shows that in 2018 Quarter 2 you will release testnet and other tools. When did Egretia start development work?

Huang Hao: Developmental work has been going on for more than a year. In addition to our own team, there are some strategic partners of ours working together on development. Internal testing is currently going on but has not been opened to the public yet. At present, the testnet and test tools are planned to be announced at the end of the second quarter, and will be availble for everyone to test.

15.Egretia mentioned that it will support game development teams and individuals. We as a blockchain related media have also been exposed to a number of developers interested in blockchain games. Can you tell us what resources and help Egretia will give to game developers, and what the requirements and restrictions are for developers?

Huang Wei: First of all, as for the requirements and restrictions, I don’t think there will be any restrictions. As long as it is a good team, a good idea, or they have a proven product, we can provide support.

We will provide support from both technical and financial aspects. On the technical side, we can help them better connect to blockchain technology. With respect to finances, we can help them solve the team’s survival and development issues through equity investment, Token investment, and so on.

Tokens and Blockchain in Gaming — — Founder’s Insight

The well-known imbalance in the gaming industry translates real-life achievements into gaming benefits; however, in-game benefits are unrealizable in real life. Consequently, the desire to level the playing field inspired a secondary market where gamers compensate for their vanishing benefits by exchanging in-game items and currency for cash. However, despite the proper purpose, these secondary markets have quite a few issues need to be solved, including inflated prices and frequent scams.

Blockchain technology can change this situation in a simple manner. By turning in-game items and currency into unique crypto assets. These assets can be owned just like real-life items. The significance of tokens and blockchain in the game industry will have a huge impact on the game itself, game players, game developers, and the entire industry, total six main perspectives:

 

The Game Itself

Question: 1. What is the difference between traditional games and blockchain games? Is Token necessary to the game?

Peter’s Perspective:

  • In Traditional games:
  1. Game developing companies are the determinators for game rules set-up and modification. They are the “God” in the gaming world;
  2. Players’ game accounts are tied to the servers of certain game developing companies, therefore, they are not transferable;
  3. The game props. are tied to the game account and they are not transferable as well;
  4. Props. and virtual assets may be inflated and depreciated due to developing companies’ unlimited distribution.
  • In Blockchain games:
  1. Game rules are open and fair, also written in smart contracts. Developers can’t change it either;
  2. The game accounts and virtual assets are owned and transferred by the players;
  3. Game virtual assets could be set up to a limited number by using smart contract. Therefore, to hold the value of the players’ virtual assets.

For games using blockchain technology, Token would guarantee that there are no counterfeit game assets. Virtual assets can be transferred and traded through Token as well. In a word, the value of game virtual assets will get even closer to real assets.

 

Question: 2. How will the blockchain technology be applied to the game?

Peter’s Perspective:

Regardless of R&D, business planning, or the industrial chain, blockchain games are a novel development, still in their infancy stage. As many beginning and promising endeavors, blockchain games currently contain quite a few imperfections and uncertainties.

However, each new technology will undergo a lifecycle process that will propel their development from infancy to popularity. Just as we have seen in Flash web games and the HTML5, we have all experienced the process of developing simple mini-games to high-quality games.

In the development of blockchain games, we think there are four possible steps:

  1. Utilize Token as Payment Method;
  2. Trade and store in-game virtual items by using blockchain technology;
  3. Write the core game rules with smart contracts;
  4. Run the game logic on chain or even store the game resources on chain.

I think it needs to include the first 3 items to be called a “blockchain game”.

Game players

Question: 3. What is the difference between a blockchain game player and a traditional game player?

Peter’s Perspective:

At present, blockchain game players are more like blockchain users or Token investors. They have a few common attributes:

  1. Comparing to the traditional players, blockchain players have more incentive to find token-involved games asides daily exchange trades;
  2. It will be much easier to attract blockchain users with the blockchain game format, even for unaccustomed gamers. At the same time we need notice that very complex games maybe not suitable for such newcomers;
  3. Many blockchain games have high Average Revenue Per Paying User (ARPPU);
  4. Blockchain users normally are highly involved in communities. Developers can create more social interactive games for these users to spread out the game. The “click-to-play” feature of HTML5 technology is very much in line with this group of users;
  5. Blockchain users come from all over the world. The games developed for them are natural products of globalization.

To turn traditional game players into blockchain game players, we still need to:

  1. Let them understand what blockchain and Token are;
  2. Optimize the operability of the digital wallet to make Token’s payment as convenient as the traditional way;
  3. Educate them to understand the advantages of blockchain-based games: game rules are fair, and the game virtual assets are value-preserving, even value-added, etc.

Game Developers

Question: 4. How to combine Token and Blockchain with games? How does a developer design a game which is suitable for blockchain?

Peter’s Perspective:

  1. Customize the game play for blockchain players;
  2. Design the game’s numerical value and economic system according to the unique characteristics of the props and virtual assets in the blockchain game;
  3. Back to the basis of the game play. For example, soccer and basketball, just like blockchain games, are typical decentralized games. The rules are fixed, and the games are still so popular and have numerous loyal players generations after generations;
  4. The game profit model should not be merely a simple prop. sale. We should focus on the player community. Developers can make profits by organizing game activities, such as the soccer organizers in real life.

Game Developing Company

Question: 5. How to motivate developers to develop blockchain games actively?

Peter’s Perspective:

We need more creative game developing companies, and to generate more game content. DApp is the ultimate format to showcase blockchain technology, gain users, create value, and promote the development of the entire industry.

  1. Educate developers to switch to blockchain games and let them understand the future value of blockchain games;
  2. Provide simple tools, an easy SDK, allowing developers to develop blockchain-based games under existing knowledge systems rapidly . This is also the goal and mission of Egretia. We would accomplish a combination of our integration of HTML5 which has been developed and improved for four years with blockchain technology together;
  3. We’ll provide developers with services and support beyond the game development tools. For example, supplying DApp store for blockchain games, so that operators would share less revenue, meanwhile developers can obtain more revenue.

Industry

Question: 6. How do we promote the development of Token Ecosystem in the game industry?

Peter’s Perspective:

Again, blockchain games are in the early stages at present, and the corresponding industrial chain is not mature.

In addition to bringing the existing 200,000 developers into the blockchain, we will also commit to create related platforms and services to develop a procyclical token ecosystem.

  1. For players, Egretia will provide a decentralized virtual assets trading platform, which will encourage players to be more active and preserve the virtual assets;
  2. For developers, Egretia will provide a blockchain game distribution center, let developers’ products get more users, meanwhile, let players discover more high-quality games;
  3. Egretia will also provide a Token-based advertising system. Developers can get more players. Players can also get Token rewards by clicking on advertisements;
  4. The game crowdfunding platform and incubator Egretia builds on Token mechanism will allow players to participate in the game development and create truly fun games.

The shift from console to digital a decade ago, paved the road for gamers to access a world of free games. We view the blockchain shift heading in the same direction. Blockchain can empower gamers to truly own their digital property and facilitate actual transparency within the gaming industry; for example, esports and gambling. Accordingly, through these liberties, blockchain innovations possess the potential to transform gaming as we know it again.

Egretia will team up with Merculet to build a new ecosystem of HTML5 game with blockchain

After several months of exploration and testing together, on April 18th, Egretia and Merculet officially reached a strategic partnership. In the future, the two sides will cooperate in the development of tokenization of H5 game developers, virtual items across game life cycles, cross-ecosystem token rights system, and vertical content open platform, etc.

Egretia is the first HTML5 blockchain platform in the world, aiming to bring 200,000 existing developers and 1 billion mobile terminal devices into the world of blockchain. Egretia has combined proven HTML5 technologies and tools with blockchain, successfully creating the world’s first complete blockchain game development toolset. With the Egretia toolset, developers can create blockchain games easily and efficiently without spending extraneous time on studying underlying blockchain technology, and the toolset allows virtual assets flowing between games.

Meanwhile, Egretia has also built four core platforms, namely distributed communications& storage cloud platform, game distribution platform, virtual goods trading platform, Egretia advertising platform as well as Egretia incubator, providing comprehensive blockchain solutions and services for players, content providers, channels and advertisers in order to build a healthy ecosystem.

Merculet is positioned as the Chief Growth Officer of Global Entrepreneurs, helping Internet enterprises embrace token-based operation and provide an out-of-the-box and all-in-one solution. No need to have any blockchain knowledge or to write any blockchain code, just a few parameter configurations can enable token-based operation of the enterprise within one day, to connect with other ecological enterprises, and boost value circulation through the blockchain’s mutual trust system.

Over the past three years, the Merculet team has created a number of products that are stable and have smooth operation models, serving more than 2,700 medium and large apps with more than 30 million daily active users and billions of pageviews per day.

Edwin Chen, CEO of Egret Technology, Was Invited to Attend GMGC

The 7th Global Mobile Game Conference had its grand opening in Beijing National Convention Center on April 2nd, 2018. The theme of this year’s conference was “The game changes the world”. Edwin Chen, founder and CEO of Egret Technology, was invited to attend the summit and share his views. He said:” the problem of  homogenization of mobile games is severe, mini-game is making a new road for game industry, and a large number of users are entering games with a lower threshold”.

As the most influential game conference in the Asia Pacific, GMGC is an industry event. The panel session brought together Edwin Chen, founder and CEO of Egret Technology, Yuan Zhuang, CEO of EZFUN Technology, Wei Li, COO of Wanda Cinemas Games, and Jin Luo, chief journalist of YOUXITUOLUO. They focused on “what types of games will lead the market in 2018″, sharing their insights.

Severe Homogenization and Promising Integration of New Technologies

It has been nearly six years since the outbreak of mobile games. The problem of  homogenization in mobile game market is becoming increasingly severe. However, with the emergence of phenomenal products such as “Onmyoji” and “Traveling Frog”, the game market has been further broadened.

Edwin Chen believed that in the past year, ACG and simulation games have become a hit. At the beginning, everyone thought that some types of games were very niche and difficult to obtain popular preferences, but the opposite is true. In addition, the integration of games and new technologies is taking center stage, such as the combination of games and HTML5, blockchain technologies. Egret Technology has teamed up with Egretia Blockchain Lab to build the world’s first HTML5 blockchain engine and platform. Integrating the most cutting-edge blockchain technology into Egret’s proven HTML5 workflow, HTML5 developers will be provided with low-threshold blockchain game development tools. By means of visualization tools, developers will be able to create HTML5 blockchian games efficiently without paying attention to the underlying technology.

The Mini-game is Making a New Road for Game Industry

Edwin Chen deemed that the WeChat mini-game, as an emerging market, does not have the burden of traditional mobile games. It is more free and makes a new road for game industry. “Recently we have seen a lot of projects, such as “Rogue Detective”, which fails to cause attention in the mainstream market, but it does have a large loyal user group. Using the characteristics of social platforms and the  low threshold of users’ entry, this emerging market can create many new gameplays,” noted Edwin.

According to public research data, the number of HTML5 game users reached 370 million in 2017, and only 30% of them used to play mobile games. Egret Technology  has launched a mini-game platform during the Spring Festival, reaching 20 million concurrent online users, and the weekly retention rate is greater than 17%, and is still growing rapidly. “From the confidence brought by the WeChat mini-game “Take a hop”, we know that many users who haven’t played mobile games before can enter the mini-game market with a low threshold, thus creating tremendous commercial value. This is the change and opportunity in HTML5 game market we are seeing now,” Edwin pointed out.

Beta Test of Egretia Blockchain SDK is Coming!

Egretia, the world’s first HTML5 blockchain engine and platform, is now inviting global developers to join the beta test of Egretia Blockchain SDK.

Egretia Blockchain SDK will allow all HTML5 games powered by Egretia engine and tools to easily access the blockchain. Developers can quickly create HTML5 games and applications that provide blockchain capabilities such as digital wallet, smart contract, trading, etc.
