BCY & SoG cards transaction & delivery time

Recommended Posts

About the blockchain congestion and its impact on transaction high cost and cards delivery time, we are working on different points:

  • adapt the new blockchain cards sale as the volume is low
  • follow what Counterparty is doing for improving its transactions, e.g. CIP 9 & 11.
  • review the technical and project aspect for a 2nd blockchain technology to support SoG blockchain card (selection is not done, but analysis of Ehtereum ERC20 token is started)
  • synchronize these 3 points for the concept of (in-game) cards blockchainization

The point of a 2nd blockchain technology is not a small one, needing several steps before implementation planning, so no delivery date is defined now.

Rootstock is on bitcoin (as sidecoin)
1) with quicker/cheaper transaction
2) with smart contract

But for token creation you must do it more by yourself (more than using counterparty, or ERC20), and for trading as well. One way to further analyse: as Rootstock runs uses the Ethereum virtual machine, code written in Solidity (like ERC20) “should” work on Rootstock.
And another point to analyse: volume of people/transactions.

But as with all these new blockchains, sidecoin, etc., you see the truth only with high usages (quality test with quantity). It sounds great on paper but there is a tradeoff with security and potentially some other unforeseen errors.

In fact the whole list of points we have to consider is not so short ;-)

Graphene blockchain could be a efficient technology. For now it is mainly around bitshares & openledger. But as mentioned here above, there are a lot of points to consider, e.g. a good mobile wallet for token management, including trading, an area where graphene/bitshares/openledger are weak from my point of view.

I've been looking around at the landscape of funding mechanisms and bitcoin-compatible software stacks to see what is out there that could be ported to HUSH/zcash, as the zcash inherited "embrace and extend" nature of HUSH in regard to bitcoin ecosystem software opens up a lot of options.

After lots of research and endless reading of FAQs, whitepapers and code, the direction I've decided that has the right technical and economic properties is to port Counterparty to HUSH with a few changes. Rather than burning the HUSH that is spent in the initial sale of HXCP (the HUSH Counterparty token, akin to XCP), those funds will be in essence the ICO funding the development of the system. Additionally, the Ethereum-derived EVM virtual machine will be enabled on mainnet and the consensus rules of HUSH will be altered to require merge-mining of HXCP blocks.

This will provide HUSH with Counterparty based-assets (hello Secure Pepecash?), Ethereum compatible smart contracts and tokens, and a funding mechanism to continue HUSH development into the future. Look for more details in the near term here and on my twitter feed.

Hi Nicolas,

Any update on this? As your target audience is not aware of the crypto world, until you fix time and costs of placing orders and trading cards, this game won't see mass adoption - and you cannot start advertising it intensively as customer retention will be at an unsatisfying level I guess

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.

Here is another new interesting choice for blockchain cards: https://smt.steem.io/

I personally prefer Bitcoin blockchain and Counterparty platform, but if it becomes too expensive or slow, or if SoG team is looking for secondary blockchain besides Bitcoin, then Steem Smart Media Tokens could be interesting alternative.

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.
