Cantina Royale targets next billion gamers with Elrond-based metaverse arcade
Vaduz, Lichtenstein, June 22, 2022 – Cantina Royale, the award-winning Unity game engine tactical shooter, has announced its Web3 play-to-earn metaverse based on Elrond Network’s internet-scale blockchain.
The free-to-play, cross-platform tactical-action shooter features stunning graphics and exciting gameplay that will vault it to the top of its genre upon its release this summer.
Cantina Royale is ready to ease the next billion gamers into the future generation of interoperable digital adventures with the addition of Web3 elements such as nonfungible token (NFT) in-game assets integrated via a seamless blockchain framework.
“It’s time to make characters and items into NFTs and give players new mechanisms for creating and exchanging value,” said Koby Menachemi, founder of Cantina Royale and Verko. “It will be just how real-world racing teams upgrade their cars — as drivers upgrade their skills, building more excitement from one race to the next. This is exactly the type of relationship that Cantina Royale establishes between NFT owners and gamers.”
Cantina Royale, powered by the Verko metaverse-experience framework and built on the Elrond blockchain, allows players to enjoy a new gaming experience supercharged by Web3 components such as NFT characters and digital assets, paving the way for a rich value-creation engine with new and recurring income streams.
The framework eliminates the need to create blockchain tools such as wallets and accounts. All players will overcome the barrier to blockchain gaming adoption.
The Verko framework, built as a gaming API layer on top of Elrond Network, allows game developers to augment their titles with internet-scale blockchain technology with just a few lines of code. It is now possible to upgrade games to Web3 power without depleting gameplay development resources.
“Cantina Royale is a new breed of games, experiences, and economies: the first wave in the tide that will carry blockchain gaming beyond its current niche and into the mainstream.” Elrond Network CEO Beniamin Mincu stated
In July, Cantina Royale will launch its Cantina Royale Token (CRT) on Maiar Launchpad. Cantina Royale received $4.5 million in funding from Elrond and Mechanism Capital. Crypto.com, Morningstar Ventures, Animoca Brands, Skynet eGLD Capital, GBV Capital, Good Games Guild, Chingari, and others were also investors.
Elrond is a new blockchain architecture built from the ground up to provide a thousand-fold improvement in throughput and execution speed. Elrond introduces two key innovations to accomplish this: a novel adaptive state-sharding mechanism and a secure proof-of-stake algorithm, enabling linear scalability with a fast, efficient, and secure consensus mechanism. Elrond, as the backbone of a permissionless, borderless, and globally accessible internet economy, can process up to 15,000 transactions per second with 6-second latency and negligible cost.
