Since Xaya was launched you may have heard us mention about how the Xaya platform and technology is blockchain agnostic. So first of all, let us start with a short introduction to the core components of Xaya and how it has been designed.
A Xaya game has 3 main components (assuming a full node setup):
Here we will focus on just numbers 1 and 2.
Xaya Core is a fork of Namecoin, a project we have maintained and supported voluntarily for over 8 years.
Namecoin was the first altcoin and…
Valletta, Malta, June 9th, 2021 — Autonomous Worlds, the company behind the Xaya blockchain gaming platform, has signed a strategic partnership with Polygon to bring decentralized gaming infrastructure to Polygon’s Ethereum sidechain.
The partnership will see Autonomous Worlds integrate Xaya into Polygon’s Ethereum-compatible sidechain, in addition to the existing Xaya blockchain. Xaya’s technology is blockchain-agnostic, utilizing L2 networks to provide a highly scalable environment for building blockchain games. Central to the Xaya platform is the CHI token, which has been deployed on Polygon as Wrapped CHI as well.
If you haven’t heard, CHI will be available in the Ethereum ecosystem as Wrapped CHI. Our smart contract has now been audited and will be deployed this week. We plan to swap CHI for WCHI starting on Tuesday, April 6th.
By creating WCHI, CHI can circulate on the Ethereum blockchain where it can be traded in markets such as Uniswap. This provides much broader access to CHI in the markets as people can use their existing Ethereum wallets, such as Metamask, to hold their WCHI without needing a Xaya wallet.
Other benefits from WCHI are the easy to use decentralised…
Players spend billions of hours every week in virtual worlds and that time is valuable.
Spending 6 months to acquire a sword in an MMORPG has value to that person and to someone else who would prefer to just pay for it, which is effectively buying someone else’s time.
This market has been made difficult for players by game developers (though sometimes for good reason) by restricting sales of in-game assets on secondary markets.
By restricting this trading, the gaming community must resort to “black markets,” which increases the chance of fraud and banning of accounts if caught by the…
Hello Taurions! We wanted to update you on Taurion Development.
If you didn’t know, Taurion is a fully decentralised MMO with elements from RPG and RTS games. MMORTS.
It’s set on a world far away from Earth where 3 houses are fighting for resources on the planet Taurion.
Here is the original story intro video for a bit of the background:
The world consists of over 65 million hexagonal tiles and these are grouped into 650 thousands regions. …
Happy New Year!
2020 was a hectic year and 2021 will probably not be much different.
We have a busy schedule for 2021 with regards to development milestones and we’ll be trying hard to make these dates.
We are also open to provide bounties or funding for assistance for taking on some of the tasks, if this is something you are interested in then please get in touch. We’ll provide a list of those soon, thought most of that is below.
For reference, the following Xaya History spreadsheet lists some past achievements and milestones.
The list below includes the…
In the past year, rollups have become one of the leading hopes of scaling Ethereum on “layer 2”. With gas fees surging throughout the year with the rise of DeFi, they indeed offer a great way to off-load smart-contract computations as well as storage in the network’s global state.
So what are rollups on Ethereum? Roughly speaking, users of a rollup-enabled application can still perform smart-contract operations as normal (e.g. transfers or swaps of tokens). The transaction data is recorded on the base chain (Ethereum in this case), but execution of the operation is done by some external entity (the…
The open beta is starting now so everyone can join!
To get started:
The Taurion Alpha Treasure Hunt 3 has now ended.
The amount of information we’ve gathered has been priceless for further improvement of the Taurion game world.
This is all down to the testers and the Prize Partners that have taken part, so we really can’t thank you enough.
We’d also like to apologise for many of those who signed up and couldn’t get into the game because of various issues. This will be improved in future iterations.
The Alpha will continue running for people to continue testing, but also for some small testing events we have planned.
As expected, the…
On Xaya block 2,159,000 — estimated to be some time on Tuesday the 8th of September, Taurion will test a hard fork in the alpha test.. This is not a Xaya fork. It is only for Taurion.
This fork will do the following:
We’re taking this opportunity to improve gameplay and at the same time test a Xaya game hard fork.
For the game improvements, we’ll be changing the movement mechanics.
