HTML5 Blockchain Game Development Workflow Release
The benefits of blockchain gaming are well-known worldwide now. For example, game manufacturer can’t change the game rules written in the smart contracts, ownership and free circulation of game assets. This would cause the relationship between developers and players to be reconfigured. In this summit, Egretia founder Peter Huang released the world’s first complete HTML5 blockchain game workflow, and elaborated on this innovative technological breakthrough for ecological developers.
Egretia has created the world’s first complete blockchain game 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.
The Egretia development workflow provides engines, visual editing wings, Egretia Server, WebIDE, and many other products. It supports mainstream languages and frameworks, and also provides smart coding assistance for mainstream languages. In addition, it helps developers edit code faster. Meanwhile, the workflow integrates the visual development environment, covering the entire process of development, debugging, publishing, and packaging. It also provides expansion capabilities such as resource management, particle editing, and animation editing and publishing on the cloud, which makes the game development experience smoother.
At the same time, Egretia has built four core platforms: distributed communication and cloud storage platform, HTML5 game distribution platform, virtual goods trading platform, Egretia advertising platform and Egretia incubator. This will provide comprehensive blockchain solutions and services for players, content-providers, channels and advertisers, and facilitate a complete ecosystem. Developers can not only create blockchain applications quickly through the Egretia’s toolset, but can also receive full service support through Egretia’s platforms for game distribution, advertising, trading, storage, and communications.

In order to enhance the overall innovation and vitality of the alliance, the “HTML5 Blockchain Game Alliance” will consider inviting more companies, universities, and R&D institutions with similar aspirations, talent, and interests. These institutions will form and join alliance organizations, share achievements, and jointly promote the development of a more reliable Internet.
Gather industry leaders & top players to gain insight into the future of blockchain
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. They also discussed the differences between blockchain game players and traditional game players, how to combine Token, blockchain and games, and how to develop a popular blockchain game. They shared their understanding of the status of blockchain technology, decentralized trading,H5 games, and future development.
At present, blockchain has been in the spotlight, and its application has been extended to various fields such as finance, digital asset trading, and games. Gaming is one of the fields that are compatible with blockchain. Although blockchain technology is not well-developed, the core technologies of blockchains, such as smart contracts and authentication, have strong applications in games. In the future, with the breaking of trust barriers, transparency of transactions, and protection of virtual assets, blockchain will help the game industry solve problems and promote the reconstruction of a reliable and stable ecological environment.
