Beyond the Void is a real-time strategy game, designed for competitive play. The game’s developers told press they want to tap into the ever-growing eSports market, which brings in hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue each year.

In a press release, developers reported that MOBA titles generated more than $406 million USD in revenue in 2014 in North America. On a global scale, gaming data firm Superdata estimates the MOBA market to be worth $20 billion as of 2016

Commenting on Beyond the Void’s competitiveness, the games founder, Maxence Burgel, said, “The game is designed to be competitive and playable in E-sports tournaments.”

“We believe players should play because they like the game and have fun playing it,” Burgel continued. “We don’t want people to have to pay in order to enjoy the game.

The game features a blockchain-based economy, powered by an Ethereum token called “Nexium.” Developers plan to connect almost every in-game item to the token. By doing this, the team told press that “players will own and operate the game economy as they wish.”

‘Beyond the Void’s’ Philosophy Behind the Nexium Token

After going live on November 1, ICO participants can purchase Nexium both from the official website and directly through CCEDK’s “ICO subscribe” page. Additionally, investors can contact OpenLedger CEO Ronny Boesing to arrange investments.

The Nexium tokens will reportedly be burned upon use, making the coin increasingly scarce as the game gains popularity. The goal in cutting supply over time is to make the coin more valuable for its players as the user-base grows.

Further explaining the philosophy behind Nexium, developers said in a press release:

Beyond the Void hopes to change the way these gamers think about their relationship with the in-game economy. By giving players blockchain based assets that they control, a free and open gaming market may grow. Beyond the Void hopes these players assets and wider market will invest players into the growth of the community long term.”

In a video about the Nexium ICO, developers claimed that the ether earned in the sale will go towards finishing game development.

The Beyond the Void ICO is one of three upcoming crowdsales hosted by OpenLedger. According to CEO Ronny Boesing, these upcoming ICOs will take this method of fundraising mainstream, since the subjects of these sales will draw interest from mainstream and institutional investors.

OpenLedger Strikes Gold: DigixDAO Asset Trading Now Supported

OpenLedger DigixDAO

Cryptocurrency exchange OpenLedger has added gold-backed crypto-token DigixDAO asset (DGD) to it’s list of supported tokens. Now, users can trade DGD for ether, bitcoin and all other digital assets supported by OpenLedger.

Disclaimer: This article was provided by Bitcoin PR Buzz. Bitcoinist is not affiliated with the firms represented by Bitcoin PR Buzz and is not responsible for their products and/or services.

DGD is branded as “a gold standard of cryptocurrency.” Each token is “hedged against a specific amount of real gold stored in the company’s [DigixGlobal] reserve.”

The crypto-token works like any other cryptocurrency, enabling users to transact in “digital gold” across the DigixDAO platform. Each DGD token represents ownership over 1 gram of real gold, which has been recognized as a reliable store of value for centuries. Furthermore, each token is “highly divisible,” which CCEDK says will allow people “to buy and transact as less [sic] as one-thousandth of a gram of gold.” The DigixDAO platform charges a a 0.13% fee on each DGD transaction, and users can redeem their tokens for the equivalent in gold on demand.

DGD coin trading launched on April 29, 2016, and currently can only be purchased with ether, the token fueling the popular Ethereum platform.

CCEDK says that that DGD is a “perfect fit” for its OpenLedger exchange,” since DGD trading is made possible on OpenLedger’s platform specifically designed for Ethereum-based assets.

Although DigixDAO currently uses OpenLedger’s Ethereum Assets listing feature for the DGD coins, it plans to independently list the tokens as DGX on OpenLedger in the future.

OpenLedger and Emercoin Partner to Create ‘New Synergies’

The Bitshares 2.0 platform OpenLedger has announced its latest partnership with Emercoin to create “new synergies” within the blockchain-based service space. The two companies want to provide an array of new concepts to the cryptocurrency and distributed ledger landscape believing each platform can better the technologies. Jason Cassidy, Chief Communications Officer at Emercoin, is thrilled about joining forces stating:

‘OpenLedger represents the future of not only digital currency trading but all digital assets. As blockchain technology blossoms there will be many more layers of innovation coming to the market and we feel the OpenLedger platform is a great example of this. Users will be able to interact with Emercoin (EMC) in many new, creative ways.’ — Jason Cassidy, Emercoin

Emercoin and OpenLedger collaborating means both services can offer new features and “bring the world a new type of trading experience.” New synergies include:

  • Create their own currency as a User Issued Asset (UIA)
  • Collateralise a new coin by creating a Market Pegged Asset (MPA). This allows a physical commodity (such as gold) to back the underlying value of the currency
  • Deploy their own real-time blockchain using OpenLedger

As well as adding each team’s innovations OpenLedger says they are looking into implementing Emercoin’s blockchain-based services within the Bitshares platform. Emercoin has recently made headlines for working with the Microsoft Azure BaaS project. The Danish registrar for OpenLedger, Ronny Boesing, CEO of CCEDK exchange says, “We are excited at the possibility of being able to integrate Emercoin’s suite of tools and services into the OpenLedger platform. Emercoin representatives will be introduced to the BitShares Community in one of coming Beyond Bitcoin weekly hangouts on Mumble, offering the community and guests a close-up opportunity to evaluate and vote on what EMC services could be brought on board and in what fashion. Services like EMC SSL have solid potential to increase the security, stability and ease of use of the OpenLedger platform, for example.” The partnership will provide insight to both companies on the technologies they offer such as Market Pegged Assets (MPA), SmartCoins, and the creation of a permissioned blockchains. Ronny Boesing told the Bitcoinist over Skype:

“With today’s announcement of Emercoin joining OpenLedger I feel it is a great new day of innovation and a day where we might already have caught a glimpse of what Openledger will be looking like in the near future. I feel personally overwhelmed by the interest in many fresh and highly professional currencies showing interest to join the platform, and expect the world to see much more to come. Wouldn’t it just be great if we all met on OpenLedger exchanging not only crypto but also ideas for progress making it a win-win situation for all.” — Ronny Boesing, CEO of CCEDK 

Boesing says for a limited time from February 8-18th all Emercoin users who sign up with OpenLedger will receive ten free Obits. Obits are the native currency of the OpenLedger network and the coin had “the first successful buyback took place on 2nd February with the result that some 49,800 OBITS were burned, equivalent to 13 BTC.” Both teams say they are excited to offer each other new ways to improve their already solidified networks and look forward to growing the partnership.
