EverdreamSoft and IndieSquare have announced a new collaborative effort called Project ORB. Launching on Friday, Sept. 16. The project uses blockchain technology to enable the use and trade of in-game items across different titles.
As part of their effort to make blockchain technology a mainstay in the gaming industry, EverdreamSoft joined-up with IndieSquare to “bring players true ownership over digital gaming assets,” according to Markéta Korteova, marketing manager at EverdreamSoft.
Project ORB is the latest team effort between the two companies who have been working together for the past month or so integrating blockchain technology into mobile and trading card games.
ORB, an acronym for “Ownership Revolution on the Blockchain,” is a system that “tokenizes” in-game items. It allows them to be traded across the Bitcoin blockchain via Counterparty. Even more, the tokenized game assets can be used across multiple games as well, even simultaneously, according to Korteova.
Tokens will be cataloged and managed via “The Book of Orbs,” a mobile application for Android and iOS that will display a player’s “ORBs.” The interface will be “optimized for gaming,” according to EverdreamSoft. The app also features an “ORB market,” where users can trade their tokenized game assets with other people.
