Developer Tutorial: Object Transitions and Rotations

Learn how to use transition and rotation settings when moving entities around your scenes. — In this quick overview, we’ll look at transition and rotation settings in the Decentraland SDK and how they can be used with the entities of your scenes. It’s important to remember that in Decentraland, you specify the exact location of an entity using x, y, and z coordinates. The Decentraland engine then renders the entity at that location. If you want to move an entity from one position to another, you simply change the x, y, and z coordinates. The engine then re-renders the entity at the new position. So, for example, if a box is in one corner of your scene and you change its coordinates to the center of the scene, then the engine figures out which “path” the entity needs to follow in order to move to the new position. The same applies to rotations, in that you set the angle an entity is facing. If you ever change that angle, then the engine will rotate the entity to face the new direction. Transitions determine the rate at which changes in a scene appear to a player. These transitions are often referred to by game developers as “lerping”. Even though the state change that describes the new position may be instantaneous, transitions make the changes appear smoothly. Imagine moving a box from point A to point B. You don’t necessarily want your box to magically teleport to point B. Instead, you want it to slide across your scene from point A to point B. Let’s take a look at where transition and rotation settings are applied to entities and how different timing selections impact the appearance of transitions. Throughout this tutorial, we’ll use the same basic scene to showcase different ways in which transitions can be used. Since transitions are only manifested when something changes over time, we’re going to use a simple PointerUp and PointerDown event listener to trigger changes in the scene.import * as DCL from ‘metaverse-api’ import { createElement, ScriptableScene } from “decentraland-api”export default class Movement extends ScriptableScene { state = { buttonState: 2 } async sceneDidMount() { this.subscribeTo(“pointerDown”, e => { this.setState({ buttonState: 2 }) }) this.subscribeTo(“pointerUp”, e => { this.setState({ buttonState: 3 }) }) } async render() { return ( <scene> <cone position={{ x: this.state.buttonState, y: 1, z: 3 }} transition={{Add your transition here.}} /> </scene> ) } } For reference, we’ll use the Entity Interface section in the documentation. Let’s start off by looking at what happens when there is no transition applied to a position change: When we click, or release our click, on the cone to trigger the change in position, it happens instantly. This is exactly what we should expect! While the transition is jumpy, it still changes position. Now, let’s look at what happens when we add a linear transition to our cone object.transition={{ position: { duration: 200, timing: “linear” } }} Since we added a linear transition, the movement between the two states happens more smoothly. Furthermore, the acceleration of the object is constant throughout the 200ms runtime. Let’s look at the transition when we change the timing to quadratic-in. Using different timings affects how your transition appears. Here, the quadratic-in timing adds some punchiness to our transition. The acceleration of the cone has a quadratic progression. You can see all of the transition timings listed on the Base Entity portion of the Entity Interface page on our documentation. If you’re using a source code editor like Visual Studio Code, the editor also shows you the list of possible values as an autosuggestion. Just place the cursor where you’d add the timing value and type ctrl + space to reveal the list. Let’s see how we can use transitions for rotation. Here’s our updated code:import * as DCL from ‘metaverse-api’ import { createElement, ScriptableScene } from “decentraland-api”export default class Movement extends ScriptableScene { state = { buttonState: 30 } async sceneDidMount() { this.subscribeTo(“pointerDown”, e => { this.setState({ buttonState: 30 }) }) this.subscribeTo(“pointerUp”, e => { this.setState({ buttonState: 90 }) }) } async render() { return ( <scene> <cone rotation={{ x: 90, y:this.state.buttonState, z:0 }} position={{ x: 2, y: 1, z: 3 }} transition={{ rotation: { delay:400, duration: 200, timing: “bounce” } }} /> </scene> ) } } Let’s see what happens to our cone now. We’ve added and changed a few things in our code. As you’ll notice in the video, our transition is delayed. You can add a delay attribute to add a brief pause to the movement defined in your code. We also changed the timing to bounce, which, like quadratic-in, adds dynamism to your transition. Let’s see what a transition can do to a scale change, or changing the size of an entity. Transitions work marvels with scaling entities up or down. We only had to add a few lines of code to achieve the effect above. Now, let’s look at some different rotation settings. Let’s start with a new scene and a new object:import * as DCL from ‘metaverse-api’ import { createElement, ScriptableScene } from “decentraland-api”export default class Rotation extends ScriptableScene { state = { buttonState: 0 } async sceneDidMount() { this.subscribeTo(“pointerDown”, e => { this.setState({ buttonState: 90 }) }) this.subscribeTo(“pointerUp”, e => { this.setState({ buttonState: 0 }) }) } async render() { return ( <scene> <cylinder rotation={{ x: 90, y:0, z:this.state.buttonState }} position={{ x: 5, y: 1, z: 5 }} transition={ {rotation: { duration: 200, timing:“linear” }} } /> </scene> ) } } We can change the rotation of our cylinder with a simple mouse click. In this first example, we rotate our cylinder around the Z axis whenever we click on the entity. Here’s what happens when we run our scene: For individually rotating objects, this method is straightforward and easy. For more complicated rotations, we can use a parent entity to rotate multiple objects at once, or to change the axis of rotation. Let’s make some quick changes:<scene> <entity position={{ x: 3, y: 0, z: 3}} rotation={{ x: 0, y:0, z:this.state.buttonState }} transition={{ rotation: { duration: 200, timing: “linear” > <cylinder position={{ x: 4, y: 1, z: 4 }} /> </entity> </scene> We’ve created a parent entity that conducts the rotation instead of the individual object. Let’s see what happens… If the axis of rotation is around the center of the parent entity, as our cylinder isn’t centered inside the parent, then it will appear to rotate following an arc. Now that we’ve seen rotation examples with both independent and nested entities, let’s look at Decentraland’s billboard mode. Billboard mode overrides all rotation properties and automatically orients the entity to look at the user. We can add this feature to our cylinder or entity with:billboard={2} You can find the billboard properties on the Base Entity section of the Entity Reference page. So, now we have:<cylinder position={{ x: 5, y: 1, z: 5 }} rotation={{ x: 90, y:23, z:55 }} billboard={2} /> We’ve set some rotation values, but as you see in the video below, the values are overridden by the billboard property. Similarly, using the lookAt property overrides all preset rotation values. lookAt is a handy way to rotate an entity so that it faces a specific point, expressed using x, y, and z coordinates. This saves you from having to perform trigonometric calculations to figure out the rotation values you would need on each axis. With the code below, we can see how the property removes rotation settings.export default class Rotation extends ScriptableScene { state = { buttonState: 1 } async sceneDidMount() { this.subscribeTo(“pointerDown”, e => { this.setState({ buttonState: -15 }) }) this.subscribeTo(“pointerUp”, e => { this.setState({ buttonState: 15 }) }) } async render() { return ( <scene> <cylinder position={{ x: 5, y: 1, z: 5 }} rotation={{ x: 90, y:23, z:55 }} lookAt={{ x: 90, y:this.state.buttonState, z:3 }} /> </scene> ) } } If you’d like to dig a little deeper into the transition and rotation settings for entities, please refer to our docs. Many of the concepts we reviewed in this blog post are already covered in the Entity Reference and Scene Content Guide. We’re working hard to make our docs the source of truth for everything related to the SDK — please open a pull request or an issue on GitHub if we’re missing something that you need.Join the conversation on…DiscordTwitterRedditTelegramGet started with the SDK!

Introducing LAND Estates

Group parcels of LAND into Estates for easier development and management. — Today we are very excited to share our latest feature in the Decentraland Marketplace: LAND Estates! We know that a lot of you own multiple adjacent parcels of LAND, and we understand that it can be frustrating to manage all of those parcels individually. Buying, selling, and shopping for bigger plots within Genesis City hasn’t been easy, much less developing and deploying scenes that span more than one parcel. So, we created Estates, which allows you to connect two or more parcels of LAND directly through the Marketplace. In this first release, you can only create, edit, transfer, and dissolve Estates. We will be adding the ability to buy and sell Estates in the next release, in a few weeks time!What are Estates? LAND Estates is a new feature in the Decentraland Marketplace that makes it possible to associate two or more directly adjacent parcels of LAND. These parcels must be directly adjacent, and cannot be separated by a road, plaza, or any other parcel. By connecting parcels into Estates, you can more easily manage your larger LAND holdings. Estates are especially useful when building larger scenes that span more than one parcel.How do I use Estates? To create your first Estate, you need to own two or more adjacent LAND parcels. — Create an Estate. — Log into the Decentraland Marketplace and navigate to the details page for any of the parcels you want to include in your Estate. Next, click Create Estate. You will be shown a view of the Atlas centered on the parcel you selected, with the remaining adjacent parcels you own highlighted. Simply select the different parcels you want to include in your estate and click Continue. You can then enter a name and description for your Estate. These details will be publicly displayed in the Atlas, just like the name and description for any individual parcel. Once you’ve created your Estate, you will see a new page appear under your account titled Estates. From this page you can view and manage all of your Estates. When you create a new Estate, you are effectively transferring your parcels to a new token. These Estates are represented by ERC721 tokens (like any other NFT). This means that you will no longer see the individual parcels under My Land, and they will not appear in MetaMask, Mist, Trezor, or Ledger wallets, nor on Etherscan under your address. You still own these parcels. They are simply contained within a new token (the Estate that you created), which is what allows you to manage them as a group. — Transfer an Estate. — To transfer an Estate to another user, simply navigate to the Estates page in the Marketplace, and select the Estate you want to transfer. Next, enter the public address of the recipient. Please double check this address, since you cannot cancel the operation. Click Submit to transfer your Estate. While the recipient could always transfer the Estate back to you, the original owner cannot reverse the action, so please be sure that you are sending your Estate to the correct person. — Edit an Estate. — You can always edit an Estate by navigating to the Estate details page in the Marketplace and clicking Edit. You can change the name and description of your Estate, in addition to removing or adding parcels to your Estate. Don’t forget that there’s a small transaction fee, referred to as a “gas fee”, for making this change, much like the fee charged when editing individual parcels. This fee is required to commit your change to the Ethereum network — Decentraland doesn’t collect anything from these fees. — Dissolve an Estate. — You can dissolve an Estate by navigating to the Estate details page, clicking Edit Parcels, then Dissolve Estate. If you’re sure you want to dissolve your Estate, click Confirm. Dissolving an Estate doesn’t change your individual LAND parcels, it only removes the association of those LAND parcels with the Estate. You will still own each parcel that was included in the Estate, but they will no longer display content deployed to the EstateJoin the conversation on…DiscordTwitterRedditTelegramGet started with the SDK!

Designing and Building Blockchain Games

What are blockchain games, and how are they different from traditional games?. — We’ve written in the past about the different types of blockchain games that we’re really excited about, and we’ve talked about the impact that NFTs will have on gaming, but we haven’t yet compared blockchain games to the traditional games most people are familiar with. So today, we want to introduce blockchain gaming in comparison with traditional gaming. If you’re a gamer yourself, or you’re a developer looking to get into blockchain gaming, we hope that this introduction helps to bring you up to speed on blockchain games and why we’re so excited about them here at Decentraland.It all started with Bitcoin… We’re all familiar with Bitcoin (the secure, transparent, and finite cryptocurrency) as the first use-case for blockchain technology that attained widespread, mainstream attention. Not long after Bitcoin, Ethereum was developed as a way to decentralize applications through the use of smart contracts: decentralized applications and scripts that can be run without having to trust a third party or centralized server. The next progression came in the form of the ERC20 standard built on top of Ethereum, standardizing fungible tokens. We then saw the appearance of CryptoPunks, a crypto-collectible platform that allowed users to purchase different “punk” caricatures represented by something like ERC20 tokens. CryptoPunks are one of the first examples of blockchain tech in entertainment, and sparked the explosion of crypto-collectibles. Contemporary collectibles like CryptoKitties are represented by non-fungible tokens (NFTs), meaning that each kitty is actually distinct, unique, and scarce — provably so thanks to a public registry built atop the Ethereum blockchain. Crypto-collectibles and the concept of digital economic scarcity have entirely shifted the way we view and value digital content, expanding a new avenue for online gaming. Last week, we talked all about the history of these tokens and their standards, so if you want to dive deeper, check out the post What are NFTs? Otherwise, read on to learn more about blockchain games.What are blockchain-based games? To put it very simply, a blockchain game is any game that is built, even partially, on top of a public blockchain that enables each player to own and control their own data. This means that the game developer, or whoever is hosting and running the game, has to request permission from a player before they can write a new record to that player’s database. Furthermore, since blockchains are essentially large, public databases, any developer from any location can access the player records stored on the blockchain. This adds a certain element of extensibility to blockchain games, because the content and data stored on a blockchain is more easily shared between different platforms and services. Imagine developing a marketplace where gamers can purchase new, unique skins (represented by NFTs) for their avatars in one game, to be built and maintained by a different developer in a completely different application. Not only do the players have complete, verifiable ownership of their new skin, but they can rest assured that their new skins are in fact scarce (or even completely unique). This is in stark contrast to traditional online games where the databases of player and item records are stored in private, centrally controlled servers. These traditional games give the developers total control over player data, in addition to removing the potential for integrating truly scarce, digitally unique in-game items.Ok, what do blockchain games look like? We’ve already tried to define what a game can accomplish with the blockchain, but what are some actual examples? Imagine taking one of your CryptoKitties (or Etheremon or CryptoBeasties) into an entirely different game or space where you can pit them against other peoples’ kitties and monsters. Now, imagine translating your CryptoKitty’s “cattributes” to a racing game, where these unique attributes are represented by your racecar and its performance. Maybe maneuver gives you a bonus to handling, and hotrod takes your top speed to another level. In addition to unique attributes attached to truly-owned virtual items, imagine if all of your MMO guild’s management and resources were registered, stored, and tracked by a blockchain without the need to entrust that power to any single member. We are already seeing these decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) being applied to some very exciting and noble uses, lending true democracies more power and scalability. These DAOs can be put to use in an incredibly wide variety of industries — like online gaming. By creating a DAO to run different gaming guild’s you remove trust issues, guarantee and enforce accountability between players, and allow for secure and trustworthy records of titles, roles, and standards. Imagine having one pseudo-anonymous game ID that you could share across multiple games, instead creating a different avatar and player name every time. Don’t worry though, you could always create a fresh avatar as often as you want. Another exciting application of blockchains to gaming comes in the form of education and tutorials: picture querying a player’s blockchain records, looking for similar games they’ve played in order to minimize the “time-to-fun metric” for your game. You can do things like hand out extra experience points, or maybe skip a tutorial, because you are able to confidently assume that the player understands the core concepts of your game. Finally, picture a standard game achievement that is granted in the form of an NFT that the player can keep forever. Achievements, medals, and trophies are a huge draw for gaming, illustrating player goals and building up bragging rights in the community. Now, imagine creating a “team trophy case” containing the virtual equivalent of the stanley cup. Having your name engraved on a virtual trophy that will exist forever is a gamechanger. Winning players from each season can have their accomplishments displayed forever, free from the constraints of a centralized database belonging to a game company that might someday go out of business.How are blockchain games different from traditional games? — Traditional Games. — Assets are owned and controlled by the game developerGame assets are not transferable between gamesPlayer history is hard to track and share between games — Blockchain Games. — Assets are owned and controlled by the playerBlockchain game assets are interoperable across gamesA continuous record of player and data history allows developers to create personalized content Along with the many boons and new toys that game designers can play with, there are a few serious, implementation-affecting effects that blockchain game developers (and players) should consider. — The players own their data. — Since player data for blockchain games is stored on a blockchain, it’s public. This means that any other game can access and use that data. Even game competitors. Much like the physical world, you can’t prevent other games from using game artifacts and assets. Just as you can take pieces from a Go game and use them on a chessboard to play checkers, you could also take game assets from one blockchain game and use them in another game. — We can’t control how players buy or sell game assets. — Players can purchase game assets directly from other players instead of through in-game stores. Players could also get game assets from an escrow service or in bulk from a bad actor who managed to exploit your smart contract. This means that game developers cannot rely on building business models around marketplace fees, and they cannot prevent players from reselling items. It’s like the used game business, but for all of your blockchain assets. Not just physical discs. — Cryptocurrency is not the same as Hard Currency. — Making your own cryptocurrency does not equate to making your own in-game, hard currency. Players own their own cryptocurrency tokens, so they don’t necessarily have to make transactions with in-game currencies. They’re free to buy any assets on the open market using other currencies like Bitcoin instead of in-game “diamonds”. Even worse, this means that the value of “hard currencies” will likely be determined by the exchange markets, not game economists.This is only the beginning There are an incredible number of emerging use-cases and constraints that we are identifying as we dig deeper into designing blockchain games, but we hope that this provides a rough introduction to what we think is possible.Are you a developer interested in working on blockchain games?

Decentraland Project Update — August 14th

News and updates from Decentraland. — It’s time for another project update from Decentraland! We have a handful of exciting changes and additions in both the SDK and the Marketplace that we want to fill you in on. We’ve renamed a few of our packages in the SDK, we’ve added support for Ledger hardware wallets with the CLI, and we’ve improved the process of linking your 3D content with your LAND. In the Marketplace, we’ve fixed some querying errors in the API, we’re making progress with LAND Estates, and we are almost finished translating the entire dApp into Japanese.SDK We’ve made a few changes to the Decentraland SDK since our last project update. You might have already noticed that a couple of our packages are renamed:metaverse-api is now decentraland-apimetaverse-rpc is now decentraland-rpcmetaverse-compiler is now decentraland-compiler The SDK now also supports an onClick event for entities. This new event type should make it much easier to program interactive scenes. There are also a few other changes to the CLI, the most notable of which is the addition of Ledger hardware wallet support. If you use a Ledger hardware wallet with your LAND, you can now execute dcl deploy --https instead of dcl deploy command to link the changes in your parcel with your LAND. The addition of the --https flag ensures that when your browser is opened to carry out the transaction, it serves a website with a self-signed https certificate (the Ledger web integration requires a secure http connection). Currently, the certificate is self-signed, so your browser might give you a warning before launching the page. Don’t worry, it’s still safe to continue! The warning is displayed only because the certificate is self-signed by your machine. Metamask has also recently added support for Trezor hardwallets, so Trezor, Ledger, and Metamask users can all link the content from their parcels with their LAND. Finally, The CLI’s linker dApp has been updated to use our decentraland-dapps library, which is fully documented and available here. The CLI now also ensures that the linking process is closed only after your transaction has been completed successfully. This should remove any confusion when linking your content to your LAND.Marketplace & dApps Our Marketplace and dApps team has been hard at work to improve the UX the Marketplace. Most recently, they resolved a few minor issues that users were encountering when querying results through the LAND API. They are also making good progress toward releasing the LAND Estates feature, which will allow users to group parcels of LAND together to simplifying deploying large scenes, and buying or selling multiple parcels at once. They’ve finished the front end development, are continuing to test the integration on the Ropsten network, and are in the middle of conducting an external audit. The Estate smart contract is now also upgradeable via the ZepplinOS! This week, we’re adding a small feature to the Marketplace targeted toward developers. Currently, whenever you deploy new parcel content from the CLI, a link is sent to IPFS tying your new content to your LAND token. Once deployed, this new feature will allow you to edit that link directly from the Marketplace’s page for your parcel. Please heed the warning by this field! Changing the URL in the “Parcel content link” field changes the content hosted on your LAND. Finally, we’re working on translating our LAND Marketplace into Japanese to make the application as accessible as possible to our users in Japan.Join the conversation on…DiscordTwitterRedditTelegramGet started with the SDK!

What are NFTs?

A no-nonsense explanation, from the ground up, of non-fungible tokens. — If you’re a regular reader of our blog, you’ll often see us referring to NFTs, saying things like “NFTs are redefining online gaming…” or “NFTs have revolutionized digital art”. While we firmly believe these statements to be true, we sometimes get so swept up in our own excitement that we forget NFTs can be confusing and difficult to understand for new readers. So, we would like to take a step back and explain what NFTs are in a way that anyone can understand. Hopefully after reading this, you’ll be just as excited about NFTs as we are!Where it all started: cryptocurrencies, blockchains, and Ethereum One of the very first uses for blockchain technology that gained the attention of mainstream users was Bitcoin, a digital currency that removed any need for a middleman (i.e. banks). Bitcoin was exciting because it proved that decentralized, digital currencies could actually work, and it solved a number of problems. Bitcoin allowed anyone to make secure, transparent, and verifiable transactions thanks to its public, distributed ledger (the blockchain). Blockchains are essentially distributed databases, allowing us to store information in a way that is secure and publicly accessible. Because they are distributed, there is no need for a middleman, making cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin possible. Blockchains also provide economic incentives to avoid cheating, thus allowing real economic scarcity (we’ll return to this concept later). Blockchains also provide some interesting solutions to the problem of digital identity: every transaction that you make on a blockchain is associated with a public address — an anonymous and secure identifier that you can use over and over again. We can see that blockchains are very powerful, bringing about the first widely used cryptocurrency, but Bitcoin is only useful as a currency. It’s nothing more than a representation, record, or placeholder of value. While Bitcoin used a blockchain to store a record of transactions, there were some people who saw an even greater potential. The result was Ethereum, created by Vitalik Buterin, which uses blockchains to decentralize much more complicated information — even scripting. People began using Ethereum to create new cryptocurrencies (often referred to as tokens) and decentralized applications (or dApps) like our LAND Marketplace. This ability to encode more complex data structures led to a need for standards…ERC: building a community and ecosystem You’ll often see the acronym ERC thrown around in crypto circles (usually followed by an identifying number like 20 or 721). ERC simply stands for “Ethereum Request for Comments” which results in a set of standards for building software using Ethereum. These standards are written and agreed upon by the Ethereum developer community. Why do we need standards? Standards allow developers to build software that’s compatible with other software. Without these standards, you wouldn’t be able to buy LAND with your MANA or MANA with ETH. By making sure different tokens and applications share similar components, developers can then interchange those components to build new experiences. Think of these standards like Lego: since all of the different pieces fit together in the same ways, anyone can use them to build all sorts of cool things. ERC20 is just the standard by which most fungible tokens are built (like Ethereum and Decentraland’s MANA). Wait, what does “fungible” mean?! If an item is fungible, then it can be substituted or exchanged for any similar item. Fiat currencies, like the US dollar, contain fungible units. One dollar bill can be exchanged for any other dollar bill. Cryptocurrency tokens like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and MANA are all fungible because one token can be exchanged for any other token. The only thing that changes is a record on the blockchain registering the transaction. It must follow that two non-fungible tokens are not interchangeable. So what is it about non-fungible tokens (NFTs) that gives them this quality? The answer lies in the data or information stored within NFTs! We’ve already learned that Ethereum made it possible for developers to begin decentralizing more complicated data, so why shouldn’t a token contain more variables than a simple unit value and owner? Let’s compare two real-world examples of fungible and non-fungible items that most people should be familiar with: dollars and movie tickets. Dollars These are obviously fungible, if I have a dollar and you have a dollar, we can trade the two and neither of us will be any richer or poorer than we were before. Movie tickets Now, let’s say I have a ticket to go see the new Avengers movie and you have a ticket for Star Wars. Both of us have movie tickets, so if we trade we won’t be any better or worse off, right? No! It’s more complicated than that, and not just because Star Wars is obviously the better movie. While each of our tickets contains the same kind of information (showtime, seat number, film title) the information on each ticket can be different. Avengers might be showing at the 3:30 PM matinee which only cost me $10 while StarWars is at the more expensive, evening showtime. Or maybe I have a ticket for the 3D showing of Avengers whereas your ticket is for the cheaper 2D version of Star Wars. Finally, it goes without saying that the two tickets are exchanged at the theater for two objectively different experiences. NFTs are the digital manifestation of items like movie tickets, in that they can contain information in addition to just the owner, lending them all sorts of uses and unforeseen value. However, just as with fungible tokens, the Ethereum developer community recognized that to build a strong ecosystem of tokens and dApps, they would need to standardize NFTs…ERC721: The birth of the contemporary NFT ecosystem Just as ERC20 standardized fungible tokens, ERC721 was written to standardize non-fungible tokens. By standardizing NFTs, the developer community ushered in a new ecosystem of digital content, games, and applications that use NFTs. Thanks to ERC721, we have things like Decentraland, CryptoBeasties, Etheremon, and CryptoKitties. What does it mean to have an ecosystem of apps that use NFTs? It can be useful to think of NFTs as a new technology on top of which we can build the same kinds of products and experiences that we already love, but with the additional benefits that come with decentralization and sound, economically scarce, digital assets. Let’s look at two of the most prevalent examples: games and rare art. Games Here at Decentraland, we’re especially excited about blockchain games, so this is something that we’ve already written about. If you want to read in (much) more detail about how we think NFTs and blockchain tech are advancing gaming, check out:How will NFTs change games? by our Product Lead, Tony ShengDesigning Experiences for Decentraland by our Experience Architect, Chris ChapmanDesigning Game for Decentraland: Distributed Role Playing Games also by Chris Chapman For now, let’s look at the three biggest impacts we see NFTs having on games. First, NFTs allow for in-game items that can be moved from game to game. The use of NFTs to represent in-game items means that you could win a new skin for your avatar in one game, then transfer that to a different avatar in a totally different game (it could even be developed by a different company). Second, Blockchains and NFTs allow for public player records. Much like the in-game items that can move from game to game, player records can also be transferred between games. Your history as a player, scoreboards, achievements, experience points, and more can all be stored on a blockchain and referred to by other developers, enriching your experience as a gamer. Third, Blockchains and NFTs make it possible to create a single, unified identity maintained across multiple games and platforms. Remember that single public key we talked about earlier? This could replace the different avatars that you have to create for every new game you want to play. This brings with it the added benefit of a persistent identity: not only does it simplify your login info, but other players could recognize you as the same person between different games. Rare art NFTs have already given artists more control over their creations, making it far easier for them to monetize their work. Because of the legitimate scarcity made possible by blockchains, buyers can rest assured that the art they purchase is, in fact, rare. This gives digital art real value that we’ve never seen before. NFTs and cryptocurrencies can also enable artists to make money off of subsequent sales of the work. Thanks to a public, immutable record of transactions, digital art stores or trading platforms could be created that give an artists a percentage from every sale. While we haven’t yet seen this applied to the music industry in a very robust way, this aspect of NFTs could radically change the way we look at rights protection for things like digital music. Final Thoughts NFTs are still extremely new. As an industry, we have a lot of work to do to improve the technology. The two biggest problems we face boil down to the experience of buying and selling NFTs, and building applications that can support larger numbers of transactions. We know that NFTs are still relatively inaccessible to mainstream users. Right now, only early adopters and speculators are using blockchain-based platforms. We want to lower the barrier of entry to NFTs and blockchain-based experiences by demystifying the technology (through posts like this!). Centralized applications (think Netflix) scale much more easily than decentralized ones, giving us one more hurdle to overcome, but this is a problem we’re actively solving. Remember that the impact of NFTs isn’t limited to the material ownership of digital items. It extends to the emotional experience of interacting with technology — it changes the way we view our relationship with the products that we use and the content that we consume. All too often, we hear the phrase “NFTs allow users to truly own their digital items”. This is true, but it falls short. While NFTs do allow us to really own digital goods, they ultimately give artists more control over their creations, companies less control over their users, and users more control over their identity. These are far-reaching impacts that extend beyond simple ownership. Let’s take a look at one last example that reshaped an industry, and subsequently peoples’ experience with technology. The phonograph let us record and replay music way back in the early 20th century, but the next advancement came in the form of digital recording. Digital audio allowed us to continue recording music, but with a huge new range of possibilities. The control that digital audio gave musicians helped to create entirely new genres and subcultures. Much like the shift from analogue music to digital music, NFTs are reshaping our experience with online content and applications. Like any radically new and innovative technology, we can only speculate as to how NFTs will be used, but we think it’s safe to say that we’ll see some incredible things, very soon.Join the conversation on…DiscordTwitterRedditTelegramGet started with the SDK!

Introducing CryptoBeasties on Decentraland

CryptoBeasties is building a 3D rendition of their blockchain-based collectible card game for the Decentraland platform!. — The advent of blockchain tech and crypto-collectibles has kicked off a new era for trading card games, and few are as fun to play as CryptoBeasties, the new blockchain-based trading card game featuring exotic beasts and characters that players can collect, trade, and play with. The whole team here at Decentraland is eager to announce that we’ll be collaborating with CryptoBeasties to build a Decentraland integration for their game, bringing your Beasties right into the metaverse!What is CryptoBeasties? Trading cards have been a favorite with gamers for decades. There’s something uniquely captivating and rewarding about seeking out and collecting rare items. Trading card games combined this classic pastime with the more social and competitive mechanics of a game. Many of us grew up with these kinds of games, like Pokemon, Digimon, and Magic cards, so we were all immediately excited to see how crypto would evolve the genre (pun intended). The team behind CryptoBeasties was just as excited about the potential of crypto-collectibles, but they felt that the first crypto games were lacking the fun and engaging experience provided by real trading cards. They saw slow, clunky interfaces and a lack of immersion and interaction. So, they set to work building CryptoBeasties, a game still centered on collectibles, but far more social, more engaging, and (most importantly) more fun to play.How does CryptoBeasties work? CryptoBeasties is a blockchain-based trading card game (or TCG). This means that each card you add to your deck is owned by you and nobody else. The scarcity of digital items made possible by non-fungible tokens (NFTs) also means that your rare cards are actually rare (and more valuable). We know that these attributes might not be new to people already familiar with other crypto-collectibles (but if they are, we highly recommend reading our blogpost on how NFTs are changing online gaming). CryptoBeasties stands out with its easily accessible and immediately engaging game mechanics. CryptoBeasties is making it easier than ever to discover, acquire, and trade crypto-collectibles, building out your preferred deck. As you build a bigger deck of Beasties, you can form individual squads of three with complementary powers. The goal is to build the strongest squad that you can! These trios can then be pitted against other players’ squads (or even an AI) to gain experience and strengthen your Beasties. While a lot of other crypto TCGs allow you to customize your cards, CryptoBeasties lets you give specific Beasties different combinations of skills and powers as they level up. For example, Water Boars are normally super slow, defensive-minded Beasties, but if you add to his Speed skill every time he levels up and embed a Flying Attack “Power Stone”, you might create the only superfast, flying Water Boar in the game!What does this mean for Decentraland? One of the biggest problems the CryptoBeasties team saw with most crypto-collectible games was a lack of immersive and social gameplay. While it’s fun to collect and customize cute, digital creatures, they wanted to build a game that was more competitive, required more communication and collaboration, and provided room to grow. We are extremely eager to help build an integration with Decentraland, making CryptoBeasties even more immersive. Within the Decentraland Client, players will be able to get up-close and personal with their Beasties, making the battles that much more intense. Decentraland also makes it possible to return to one of the biggest appeals of physical trading card games — spontaneous duels with your friends! You’ll be able to carry your customized deck of Beasties with you wherever you go in Genesis City. If you see another person tagged as a CryptoBeasties player, you’ll be able to run up and challenge them to a duel. Or, you could coordinate larger tournaments in one of the many locations of Genesis City. We’ve got a few ideas of what this might look like in-world: players may be teleported to a temporary, isolated “arena” either on a separate parcel or a platform floating in the sky. These arenas could be kept publicly available to spectators or friends of the players. Another option we’re considering is limiting the public duels to roads and plazas. Since Decentraland is still under construction (and so is CryptoBeasties) we want to explore a few options to make sure that we deliver the best experience possible.How soon can I see CryptoBeasties in Decentraland? The CryptoBeasties team is first building a robust 2D experience that you can sign up for here. They’re planning on holding a presale this month, so get ready! Later this fall, they intend to have built an alpha version of the card game, and a 3D/VR experience shortly after with a projected launch in coordination with the Decentraland Client.Learn more about CryptoBeasties You can learn more about CryptoBeasties, and get involved with their community through:Their websiteFacebookMediumTwitterDiscordTelegramLearn more about DecentralandDiscordTwitterRedditTelegramGet started with the SDK!

Decentraland Project Update & NIFTY Highlights — July 31st

The latest news from Decentraland, plus highlights from the NIFTY Conference!. — Last week we had the pleasure of co-hosting and sponsoring the NIFTY conference in Hong Kong, so we would like to share some of the highlights and our biggest takeaways in this week’s project update. Then, we’ll wrap things up with some recent updates in the Marketplace and SDK.Highlights from NIFTY Last week from July 24th to the 26th, we helped host the world’s first conference dedicated entirely to NFTs and blockchain gaming, and we had an incredible time! We were thrilled with the number of attendees (over 800!) who traveled from around the globe to talk about NFTs and online gaming. Excitement for NFTs is building around the world and is beginning to span many different industries: we met entrepreneurs, academics, creatives, and engineers, all of whom were eager to learn from, educate, and inspire our growing community. Beyond simply bringing all of these people together in one space, the conference included a full series of panels and keynote presentations from industry leaders and innovators. We also held our first Decentraland hackathon!Panels and Keynote PresentationsDecentraland’s Chris Chapman hosts a panel on designing crypto games NFTs and blockchain tech are rapidly and radically changing the way we look at digital content and online gaming. Never before have users been able to maintain ownership of their digital items. Never before have “rare” in-game items actually been rare. We were lucky to have so many industry leaders come to present their work and ideas on how exactly these new technologies are evolving and how they’re reshaping the online gaming landscape. We’ll post more video recordings of all of the presentations and panels in the coming weeks, but we wanted to start by sharing a few of them here. — Panel: How to design crypto games. — Blockchain games provide a number of new opportunities (and challenges) to both developers and players. Our Experience Architect, Chris Chapman (aka m3mnoch on Discord) sat down with Luna Cruz, Co-founder & Creative Director at Altitude Games, Yiyi He, Co-founder at Mix Marvel, Marguerite deCourcelle, CEO at Neon District, and Kyle Lu, Founder and CEO at to discuss some of these opportunities and challenges. — Panel: Conversation on the Creative Industry with NFTs. — NFTs are both creating new avenues for artistic expression and giving creatives more control over the art that they create. Watch this panel with Simon De la Rouviere, Engineer of Societies at ConsenSys, Ian Lee, Venture Fund Lead at IDEO CoLab Ventures, and Jehan Chu, Co-founder & Managing Partner at Kenetic to hear their thoughts. — Keynote: Intellectual Property and Licensing NFTs. — Rare digital art in the form of NFTs present many new opportunities for branding, along with some interesting challenges related to intellectual property and licensing of digital goods Check out the keynote presentation with David Yu, CEO at Ecomi to learn more.Hackathon The hackathon at NIFTY was a wonderful success! We were incredibly excited to see so many different creative uses for NFTs and the Decentraland SDK. We’d like to share the top three teams below, but if you want to check out all of the submissions, visit the NIFTY page on DevPost!3rd Place: Cryptacious Creatures CryptaciousCreatures is a blockchain-based augmented reality game that was designed and built to help teach users (especially kids) how blockchains work. By exploring the real world as viewed through an AR app, players can find and collect different dinosaur fossils, represented by NFTs. Players can then take these fossils and combine them in a lab to create a new dinosaurs that they can play with and battle against one another, earning the player points, NFT tokens, and leveling up the dinosaur.2nd Place: Mystery Box Mystery Box is a platform that allows users to buy and sell NFTs in a safe, provably secure, and very transparent way. We’ve all seen how popular mystery boxes are becoming, and combining them with NFTs is a natural pairing. Building a mystery box platform on top of Ethereum provides users with a trustless way to collect (and sell) their crypto-collectibles: MysteryBox lets users see all of their NFTs in one place, and browse through a list of mystery boxes containing different sets, or collections, of NFTs. Users can then bid on a box if they see something that they want, or they can create their own boxes to sell.1st Place: Last of Ours The team behind Last of Ours has built a crypto-collectible economy that digitally mirrors populations of real, endangered species. Their blockchain game empowers individuals to help make a measurable and positive impact on the health of these populations. How does this work? Users adopt animals in the real world by purchasing LAST tokens representing those animals and sponsoring monthly “maintenance” for the individual and its habitat. By sourcing data sets from organizations around the world, Last of Ours is able to guarantee an accurate representation of the health of these populations and ecosystems, reflected in their digital renditions. Players can use their LAST NFTs as avatars within Decentraland to help build awareness and demonstrate their support for the project. The funds from the LAST tokens are given back to the organizations and the individuals out working in the field to help protect these different species and habitats.What’s next for NIFTY? We were thrilled by this first NIFTY conference, and want to thank everyone who attended to compete in the hackathon, give a presentation, or simply join in the discussion. We hope to help organize future iterations of NIFTY around the world, so stay tuned!Other news from Decentraland We’ll continue to share more recordings of the presentations and talks from NIFTY throughout the week, so keep on eye on our Twitter feed! Now, for our regular updates from the Decentraland project.Updates in the Marketplace We’ve almost finished all of the work necessary to release LAND estates. The team has just finished implementing the necessary smart contracts, and have begun the final stage of testing. We’ve also completed the last development phase for LAND mortgages and are wrapping up our audits of the corresponding smart contracts. Once our audits are complete, we’ll begin testing mortgages before releasing them on the Marketplace.Updates in the SDK The team has recently released version 4.0.4 of the SDK, which fixes several bugs in addition to adding secure support for Web3 via eth-connect, our TypeScript replacement for web3.js! For specific details, please check out the release notes in our documentation. We’ve also established a framework for porting Redux games into the Decentraland SDK. For a step by step example of this process, read our latest developer tutorial!Join the conversation on…DiscordTwitterRedditTelegramGet started with the SDK!

投资 500 万美元以促进区块链游戏创新. — 我们对整个 Decentraland 社区的快速发展感到非常兴奋!虽然我们认为 Decentraland 是一个社区驱动的项目,但我们希望有更大、更非凡的项目入驻我们的平台。我们的目标是为创新者和企业家提供打破区块链游戏界限所需的工具和框架。创世内容计划介绍 我们欢迎开发团队和设计团队,提供区块链游戏或可在 Decentraland 上构建的互动体验建议。为了鼓励和促进去中心化在线游戏的创新和发展,我们将给其中的优秀申请人投入总额 500 万美元的项目融资。 我们欢迎所有的工作室:无论您是一小群独立开发者还是经验丰富的专业游戏工作室,我们都希望你们参加。Decentraland 虚拟土地上的区块链游戏 Decentraland 平台为以区块链为基础的游戏设计虚拟体验提供了一个全新的尚未开发的机会:利用以太坊的去中心化共识机制提供可证明的稀缺数字资产,同时允许开发者在无国界的全球金融网络中将他们的游戏货币化。 我们一直在研讨 Decentraland 上的区块链游戏,并确定了我们认为将对这些游戏的设计开发产生巨大影响几个关键特征:土地大小有限 — 由于 LAND 稀缺,开发者只能在他们控制的 LAND 上托管他们的游戏,因此每个游戏占用的“游戏空间”是有限的。这意味着作为一名开发人员,您必须设计适合您的 LAND 的土地大小的游戏。分布式所有权 — 与由单个公司创建和控制的传统 MMO 游戏或 VR 平台不同,Decentraland 是一个由用户生成内容的共享的、开源中心。因为我们鼓励为 Decentraland 建立多样化的游戏,LAND 开发者(如同在现实生活中一样)必须尊重他人的财产。虽然 如此,Decentraland 仍可以构建跨越多个地块的分布式游戏。图形性能限制 — 我们遵循以“web 优先”的方式构建 Decentraland,鼓励遵循谷歌倡导的低面建模风格(low-poly)。这将提高尽可能多的用户的体验质量,有助于防止用户受限于任何一个单一设备或将 Decentraland 绑定到特定的应用商店。 与传统的游戏平台相比,通过对各种不同的项目设计施加这些简单的限制约束,可以让我们为更广大的用户提供真正难忘的体验。这些游戏是什么样子的? 我们已经确定了一些特别适合 Decentraland 的常见游戏类型:寻宝游戏:在这些游戏中,玩家可以收集分类世界不同地区的通证化的数字资产。土地所有者可以通过托管在他们土地上的游戏资产来吸引用户,激励玩家探索更大的世界。技能竞赛:在技能竞赛中,玩家在各种以技能为基础的游戏中,在较小的游戏空间里进行一对一的较量,类似于游乐中心或游乐园。创作:通过使用不同的通币化的“制作材料”,玩家可以设计独一无二的 3D 内容,放置在他们的土地上或用来装饰他们的头像。允许用户制作他们自己的不可互换的数字资产会带来额外的稀缺性并且产生其他创新功能的潜力。将土地作为游戏场景:大型合作游戏可以使用地图形成一个巨大的棋盘游戏。有了这些,您就可以在团队中长时间玩类似 Go 和 Battleship 的游戏。藏宝箱游戏:在藏宝箱游戏中,玩家可以购买、创建和存储包含不同资产和内容的藏宝箱,供其他玩家发现并与之互动。有关的详细解释和说明,请阅读 Chris 的这篇博文。 要详细了解这些不同的游戏类型,请阅读 Chris Chapman 撰写的这篇博客文章。我如何让我的团队参与进来? 请填写并提交此表单申请。 创世内容计划将持续进行,没有时间限制。我们欢迎任何有关有助于改进的意见和建议。 Decentraland 由社区建造并为社区服务,我们将竭诚为您提供各种支持! 及时了解我们的最新进展加入 Discord加入 developer updates 邮件列表在 Twitter 上关注我们订阅 subreddit加入 TelegramSDK 开发入门! 官方中文社区:电报:微博:优酷:群:553427906(1群)328403454(2群)微信公众号:DecentralandCN微信群:请加微信号 csuuge 创世内容计划:资助未来的区块链游戏 was originally published in Decentraland on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.


MANA Price Gets 2.5% Weekly Boost As Bulls Charge For Reversal

    This week, MANA showcased a slew of 2.5% gains. EMAs are also moving above Decentraland's token's price. MANA price tallies 2.5% gains MACD looks flat and not showing any bullish sign Decentraland market cap at $1.29 billion At this point, MANA's price is close to its lowest for 2022. The bears are eyeing a new low for the year while also trying to get on top of the costs below the range of $1.0. Sometime in August, MANA's price plunged which negatively impacted buyer expectations especially as the coin is still getting massive rejections resulting from the trend reversal. MANA Price Down In Market Value  According to CoinMarktCap, MANA price has nosedived by 3.04% or trading at $0.6949 as of press time. MANA price has depreciated in market value, prompting the bulls to wait for the next big wave or a confirmation of a trend reversal before moving to consolidate into long positions. From July to August, MANA appeared to have allowed the bulls’ entry but has failed to offshoot above the $1.0 price level. With that being said, the key resistance level has been marked at $1.0 while the support zone is at $0.64. Evidently, MANA/BTC has also dropped by 2.9%. After MANA's price dipped below the 200-day EMA as seen on April 5, 2022, MANA has retreated further since then. On the other hand, all the other EMAs such as 20, 50, 100, and 200 are doing great as they sprint above the current price. The buyers are trying to push the price near the 20-EMA. MANA’s RSI sh... read More

MANA Under Sideways Motion In The Last 4 Months

    The MANA relative strength index has shown growth which signals an increase in buying activity.         New developments, partnerships in Decentraland contribute to price spike         Decentraland social mentions amplified by 89.07%         MANA price up by 1.04% There are so many exciting developments happening for Decentraland (MANA), such as the partnership of StadioPlus with LaLiga, a Spanish football league giant. The partnership allows LaLiga to feature themed plots of virtual land starred in Vegas City, which happens to own the biggest entertainment, games, and sports areas of Decentraland. With that being said, a bullish reversal is possible, off-shooting the $0.84 barrier and peaking towards the $1.26 mark. According to CoinMarketCap, MANA price has skyrocketed by 0.15% or trading at $0.7431 as of this writing. MANA/USDT Pair: Sideways Rally The MANA/USDT pair is observed on sideways motion in the last four months. With this rally trend, the $1.15 resistance is now a barrier to any bullish outbreak. However, the $0.756 to $0.74 support levels have set an accumulation of active bullish activity. Following the retracement that occurred in the second half of August plus the massive sell-off in light of the flush of high CPI data, Decentraland’s price has diminished to the key support of $0.71. On the flip side, MANA has retested the support level many times, triggering a recovery. At this point, ... read More

Spanish La Liga Launches a Project on Decentraland (Report)

    The top tier of Spanish soccer - Primera Division, commonly referred to as La Liga - reportedly joined forces with the digital art platform - StadioPlus - to enter the Decentraland Metaverse. Over the course of the partnership, the league will develop land parcels in Vegas City district (a digital party town part of the virtual reality platform). La Liga's Push Into the Metaverse According to a recent coverage, the move aims to grab the attention of Generation Z, who are among the most active participants in the Metaverse space. Seeing La Liga's developments in Decentraland's Vegas City district, those born from 1997 to 2012 might increase their interest in Spanish soccer, too. Speaking on the matter was Stephen Ibbotson - Head of Franchises and Licensing of La Liga. He said the organization had sought ways to innovate itself and surpass competing championships to ensure the best experience for fans on and off the pitch. 'This licensing agreement will allow us to reach a new and significant audience, like that of Decentraland,' he added. For its part, StadioPlus will offer guidance in the partnership. It also gains the rights to La Liga intellectual and industrial property for commercial use in the Metaverse. Jon Fatelevich - a top executive at the digital art platform - stated: 'StadioPlus is on a mission to be the bridge between the sports industry and the future. Therefore, we are delighted to have reached this agreement with La Liga, with whom we have been working togethe... read More

Cardalonia Scores It's First Exchange Listing, Set To Overtake Decentral...
