3. SmartIDE: Writing the Smart Contract on the Cloud IDE

The development of blockchain games cannot live without the development of smart contracts. SmartIDE is a powerful and smart contract development tool that allows you to write Solidity contracts directly on the cloud. Working with the Egretia HTML5 development engine and Egretia Server will greatly improve the efficiency of development.

SmartIDE contains the following eight functions:

• Explorer: The file browser lists all files stored in the browser by default. You can see them in your browser folder. You can rename, delete or add new files to File Explorer at any time.
• Code Editor: The SmartIDE Editor recompiles the code every time when you change the current file or select another one. It also provides syntax highlighting of keywords.
• Console output: The console can view events output by the SmartIDE.
• Compiling: If developers need to use the compiling function after writing the smart contract, the function will display any possible errors under the contract.
• Running & Deployment: The Run tab is an important part of SmartIDE. It allows you to deploy smart contracts into the blockchain.
• Settings: Settings dispatches the current version of the compiler and allows you to switch to other versions.
• Analysis: The analysis function provides information about the last compilation. By default, each compilation will run a new analysis.
• Debugging: This module allows you to debug transactions. It can be used to deploy transactions created from SmartIDE. (Debugging works only if the current environment provides the necessary functionality).

4. Web Wallet: Seamlessly Fusion the Blockchain Web Wallet

The Web Wallet is a web-side wallet provided for developers by the Egretia team. Another big difference between blockchain game development and traditional game development is that blockchain games need to interact with the blockchain, so they need to deal with wallets constantly. Although there are third-party wallets, such as Metamask on the market, it is not very convenient for blockchain game development, so the Egretia team developed the local debug wallet, Web Wallet. During the development of blockchain games, Web Wallet is embedded into the game so that it can be used easily when debugging the game.

This summit not only presents a number of critical agendas, but also gathers a lot of industry leaders, outstanding entrepreneurs, investment experts, and top players in blockchain games to explore blockchain technology innovation and real applications.

Zhengjun Zhou, the founder of TrustNote, said in his speech that the essence of blockchain is to give everyone a tool. This tool is used to record trust between people or between equipment and people in the future. TrustNote solution is used for this purpose. Hui Cheng, head of Merculet’s global business development, said in the keynote speech that Merculet is doing its job to help traditional enterprises to use blockchain and help ordinary developers achieve rapid deployment and rapid implementation of Token-based operations.

Xiang Huang, the founder of GalaSports, pointed out in his speech about how to make the blockchain game more interesting. It requires a worldview, storyline, character settings, core gameplay, and competition methods. The top player of blockchain game, Nick Wu, appeared to share the 6-million RMB cost of experiencing the blockchain game. At the same time, he believes that with blockchain, game data will no longer be easily tampered with, and the game rules will be relatively transparent. Also, game assets will also be more independent.

During the panel discussion, the moderator Peter Huang, founder of Egretia, and five honorable guests Edwin Chen, Xiaoxing He, Nick Wu, Lijian Xiong, and Zhengjun Wu discussed the differences between traditional games and blockchain games, and how blockchain technology is applied to games.

Opportunities and Challenges Coexist. Blockchain Technology Revolutionizes the Game Industry

Relying on “decentralization” and the self-construction of “consensus ecology”, the innovation and commercial applications of blockchain technology continue to expand, which greatly affects the industrial upgrading, transformation, value reshaping, and gradually becomes an important transforming gene in the future science and technology world. Gaming is one of the fields that are compatible with blockchain. Although blockchain technology is still developing, the core technologies of blockchain, such as distributed ledgers, smart contracts, and consensus mechanisms have wide applications in games. Developers cannot change the rules of the game once they are written in the smart contracts. The significance and advantages of blockchain games are generally recognized by the industry because of the free flow of the ownership of the game assets and the reconstruction of the relationship between the developers and the players.

Although the emergence of blockchain technology brings many changes and positive meaning to the game industry, opportunities and challenges still coexist. Peter Huang said that tools, public chains, payments, and communities still have a lot of room for completion and optimization. Every critical side of the blockchain game industry should jump out of the traditional game mode as well as the present limitation. They should explore patiently rather than speeding up the ripening of the industry. Then they will be able to give blockchain, this new technology, enough time to develop and evolve through games.

Cooperating with Egret technology, Egretia creates the complete HTML5 blockchain ecosystem

With the continuous breakthrough of blockchain technology, irrational speculation is decreasing. From the underlying technology, platform development and vertical application, the real application of blockchain is developing. The blockchain closed-loop is gradually improving too. Peter Huang pointed out that by cooperating with Egret technology, Egretia has created the world’s first complete HTML5 blockchain development toolset, which will bring 200,000 developers and 1 billion mobile devices into the blockchain world. Developers can create blockchain games easily and quickly by using the Egretia toolset without paying attention to complex underlying technology, and can trade virtual assets between different games.

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.
