    About the fees

    I just read again this long thread and it confirms me that it is very difficult to predict the future of blockchains. These last weeks counterparty transactions were very low, and reasonably quick. I personally made more than 30 transactions, now always with the lowest fee of 1 satoshi/byte. It simply works fine. The mood Bitcoin/Counterparty is good. Other major blockchains are a little more under pressure. Honestly, I think that we did not manage too wrongly with our priorities and resource allocation. But the main message of my post is that everything can change quickly, and having a mid-term approach seems good.

    SOG game on decentralised EOS platform

    Yes scaling and high capacity of blockchains are one the improvements a lot of people have a focus, and especially for games which design put a lot of game mechanics on the blockchain (+aspect of the transaction fees). EOS is one of the promising blockchains for that. Such talks were common for us, starting by request from the community to move to Ethereum. We have new products in the pipeline for this blockchain: the game à table ! and our multichains wallet Casa Tookan. We follow these blockchain initiatives and their promises, e.g. the Loom sidechain usage in gaming as complementary to Ethereum. But we will act with decision to embrace or switch to a new blockchain more with proven usage at large scale by real products (e.g. other games). Any important game running on EOS will naturally be part of our technology screening of blockchain for gaming and collectibles.

    About the fees

    Bitcoin transaction itself has improved, but it could be back to difficult situation again at anytime. Counterparty plan and work are good: CIP 10 Multi-Peer Multi-Asset Sends (MPMA) & CIP 15 Segwit Support, later CIP 13 – Multiparty Counterparty Aggregate Transactions (MCAT) (see the end of their latest newsletter https://counterparty.io/news/counterparty-newsletter-02-01-2018/) These Bitcoin & Counterparty aspects are encouraging, but perhaps not enough to rely completely on it. The need of a 2nd blockchain support is further present and correspond to our multi-chains approach. Even if we did not have now the perfectly suited blockchain for our digital assets true ownership requirements, we started working on an alternative with Ethereum: - a version of Book of Orbs compatible with Ethereum ERC-20 token - a new game working with Etehreum and using a future new browser feature in Book of Orbs allowing to visit external sites, adding a blockchain collection wallet experience ; see : We further follow the Counterparty progress with the priority for our SoG blockchain cards to be easily tradable. Expanding our multi-chains experience prepare us to better react if the situation is worse and reinforce the power of our ecosystem around Book of Orbs.)

    About the fees

    Hello What are the possible changes? 1) Counterparty no more on BitCoin a. by Counterparty itself : some initiative discussed, but not really started, a clear consensus is not reached b. other people do forks: initiatives started on Mona, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash - we follow it c. we EDS do our own Counterparty fork on another blockchain : better to group other service/company/organisation together for 1) b. 2) out of Counterparty on another blockchain a. Which one is the good one? Half a year ago we started already this discussion, a lot were asking for Ethereum ERC-20 (we started analysis), today it would be more questionable, & and in 6 months? b. it requires several steps before implementation, analysis started, big project with long migration period (estimated 6 months to on-board all SoG cards & BCY holders, proof of wallet ownership), points to consider: blockchain (reliability, transaction tine & cost, API, etc.), SoG cards, other game’s & collection’s tokens playable in SoG, BCY, wallets (mobile & web, cold, burn), trading exchange, etc. Today we are with 1) a. but no quick improvement solution seems to emerge soon I consider that we have not enough visibility to engage in selection & implementation of 2), but we further follow it. Short-term, the recommended path to engage in is 1) b. We estimate to have more info & feedback for end of January 2018.

    BCY & SoG cards transaction & delivery time

    In general Steem is focused on content and media related services. Their SMT (Smart Media Token) has a USP differentiation for “incentivizing content creation and curation, … and for a voting system”, not really needed for the creation of digital assets linked to blockchain token. Anyway their intention to be an alternative to Ethereum ERC-20, and other aspects, like low transaction fee make it worth to follow. Additionally we can consider that these possibilities of content, curation, voting, with token reward for contribution would be more suited for our potential “Project Nova” with the community participating to the creation of game’s content or features to be rated and monetized. Thanks for the reference.

    Help! Spell of Genesis v1.2.2 to 1.2.4 no update

    The problem is on the side of the Google Play Store. But I cannot find explanation of the Error code: 0. Do you have the same error with another app, e.g. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=inc.indiesquare.orbbook (if you have to test an app download, I prefer that it wil be this one ;-) ) If not sorry for very standard advice: phone off/on, delete some apps or file to ensure you have enough memory space.

    Just logged in and there was a new level?!

    By the way about the 75/90 you see for the Askian Achievement, the 90 is the number of stars for the reward. When 90 is reached you receive your reward (card) and the next number of stars as target will be displayed (95).

    EDS should distribute BCY to top 500

    Hello Thanks for the ideas and discussion. Yes rewarding the players from their leaderboard ranking is something we started. The orientation is more for blockchain cards directly and other in-game elements (e.g. in-game cards, gold). We take care to avoid potential barriers for the player to receive the reward. For that, in-game elements are very good as they are available when you login in the game. The blockchain card requests that a counterparty (XCP) wallet is linked to the SoG player account. This is something additional that a player can do now in our site spellsofgenesis.com, but planned within the SoG app in the next release. Distribution of BCY is another option but more complicated, adding the buying process. Good to review this option later, after the analysis of the 1st leaderboard reward distribution, and after more players have linked their counterparty (XCP) wallet. So we plan to see how the initial reward distributions work, then we can better define the next ones. For buying gems with BCY, it is not possible as you must use the official app payment system of apple. Buying outside is anyway subject to apple analysis. For the understanding of gold/crystals/gems as in-game elements we prefer to keep buying one of these (gems) with in-game payment, separated for blockchain cards tradeable outside of the game with BCY. Naturally we follow the evolution of app/play store rule concerning payment & blockchain elements (especially crypto-currencies), to adapt when suited.

    Card disappeared

    hello @wachtwoord We tried to reproduce your case and did not succeed. But we found another bug that we believe could be related: "Raid Cards Distribution with Double Display in Team". The card won by Raid are displayed incorrectly 2 times in the deck (Team). But if you leave the "Team" area, or do an action (e.g. fuse, or in my screenshots example here: crystalize), then there is a refresh and the card is no more displayed 2 times, but only once. Can you remember if it was something similar in your case?

    BCY & SoG cards transaction & delivery time

    For the 1st point, we adapted the cards sales, there is no more new cards every week. We made sales with previous cards and no sales this week. For the 2 other points (Counterparty CIP 9 & 11, 2nd blockchain technology) started high-level scenario & alternatives, but we will further follow main crypto evolution till 1st week of August. In between the mempool has improved and transaction during week-end are sometime acceptable. Additionally, we are working on the integration (linking Counterparty/XCP wallet) within the SoG of the BoO app (Book of Orbs). This should help a part of our audience to start with wallet, blockchain, SoG cards.

    Leaderboard Analysis

    Good idea, currently no. I put a task for review of our external API concept (planning with resource prioritisation is another point)
