LegendsOfCrypto is a project of NFTs card game using the codes of the cryptographic industry and its tutelary figures. Surfing on the craze of the crypto community for the new trend “play to earn”, it has known since its launch an impressive dynamic. With the announcement of the Alpha Launch, an update was necessary.
LOCGame at the heart of its ecosystem
The game is developed by RBL Labs, a studio based in the Netherlands that clearly states its ambition to bridge the gap between gaming, art and DeFi. LOCGame’s mission is to become the first decentralized NFT card game in terms of number of users and to raise the value of its token, the $LOCG, to a minimum capitalization of $1 billion ($12 million at the time of writing).
Realistic or not, the team is still working rigorously and communicates regularly with its community on the progress. Progress in all directions that recently concerned new large-scale partnerships, but also the interface, the marketplace and the game dynamics, since it is finally official: the Alpha version will be offered from November 30, 2021.
Become the alpha of legends
So, if you feel like an explorer, we invite you to become an alpha tester from November 15 on the company’s twitter page. This first test phase will allow you to test the concept on the following registers:
- Basic game (v2)
- Native user interface
- Predefined game deck
- Random matches
- Player profile
- Account management
A first step for “systemic” stability testing that will quickly evolve into a v2 that we are told will be much more complete with the implementation of the market-place dedicated to NFT, as well as the update of the game rules, first basic tournaments and tutorials, in accordance with the ambitious roadmap that the team has set.
A rich and dynamic game mechanic
When playing LOCGame, players compete head-to-head on a 9-square board. A game deck is composed of 20 cards chosen by each player, including 10 common, 6 uncommon, 3 rare and 1 legendary. The game starts with 3 cards in hand. The cards are strategically placed in turn to inflict damage on opposing cards in order to eliminate them. The last one with cards in hand wins the game!
The NFT cards, which are the central element of the game, all represent a famous figure or an iconic profile of the crypto industry. A number of them have already been revealed: Satoshi Nakamoto of course, but also Changpeng Zhao aka “CZ”, the fantastic boss of the Binance platform. There are also well-known profiles, such as “Whales”, “Hodlers”, “Traders” etc…
All cards have their own properties. Strengths and weaknesses based on criteria valued within the crypto community and whose rating scale varies from 1 to 100: innovation, influence, dev-skills, wealth, community or network power and finally the overall impact.
At this time, 3 game modes are already known:
- Free games: These games open to all will make you face the AI with cards that will be distributed randomly. Playing in this mode can be a good way to get familiar with the LOCGame universe. It also allows you to earn badges, receive financial rewards in $LOCG and access unique NFTs.
- Jackpot Games: These games allow players to compete for prizes paid out in $LOCG. To participate, players must build their decks by drawing from a pool of cards for a small fee in $LOCG. The winner takes home the entire prize pool.
- Tournaments: Competitions will be held every month and players will be able to compete for cards and $LOCG tokens from the platform. Once again, blockchain mechanics will be used to compose decks through pools, opening the field to the most daring strategies.
Play-to-Earn and DeFi combined
For the hours spent playing, all participants will be rewarded with native $LOCG tokens. A true play-to-earn incentive with variable geometry since the most deserving and assiduous will also be privileged to receive random NFTs from the platform.
LegendsOfCrypto’s protocol relies on the Ethereum blockchain and the Polygon second-layer solution to provide a better user experience, and to allow the game to use an autonomous and decentralized governance model (DAO). An architecture that allows for fast and low-cost transactions.
It is also thanks to this link with Polygon that, in addition to the gameplay, $LOCG holders will have access to a complete DeFi experience:
- Staking: $LOCG tokens can be staked in pools. This provides returns in $LOCG and access to original NFT airdrops.
- Rewards: The more you play, the more $LOCG you’ll receive in return.
- Cashback: When you purchase NFT cards and games from the LegendsOfCrypto marketplace, you will receive $LOCG cashback.
- Governance: $LOCG holders will be able to suggest changes to the game, request new features and new card editions, and even be appointed to the LOC Council of the DAO.
- Modify features in the rarest NFTs: The $LOCG token will allow specific features to be added or modified.
- Payment: Paying in $LOCG allows you to get discounts on NFT cards, decks, boost factor, etc.
As you can see, the native $LOCG token is the backbone of this nascent ecosystem. Currently, just over 30% of the supply has been released, distributed over the course of this year via an airdrop conducted with Coinmarketcap, as well as the Strong Holder Offering (SHO) which went perfectly last April. The $LOCG is currently selling for around $0.25 on marketplaces such as Uniswap, KuCoin, Gate.io and Hotbit.
An engaged community and strategic partnerships
As you can see, the Legends Of Crypto project is a clever mix between a strategy game and NFT trading cards. LOCGame regularly enriches this part of its ecosystem with prestigious partnerships in order to generate public interest. It is in this context that the company is proud to announce its partnership with a K-pop superstar: DJ SODA. A card will be created especially for her and will join the prestigious “celebrities deck” offered for sale on the NFT ProjectX platform.
“I am extremely excited to work closely with the LOCGame team to bring my own personality and character to one of their cards. Being a part of their metaverse will be an important first step in not only getting me into crypto-currency, but also in getting my fans to follow me. I can’t wait to launch this amazing partnership with LOCGame and build my new NFT!”DJ SODA
According to Crypto Differ’s Galaxy Score, the community of internet users supporting the project was one of the 15 most active in the crypto ecosystem as of September. This is a testament to the enthusiasm around LOCGame, which can be partly explained by the incentive mechanisms put in place to take part in the future game as well as by the team’s stated willingness to strongly reward its community.
As a proof, when the Alpha Launch is announced, the promotional offers and gifts follow one another! A special 30-day 100% APR staking campaign was already launched at the end of October, along with a 2% bonus in $MATIC and two NFT sweepstakes: one to win 2 packs of rare LOC cards, the other in partnership with Dragons of Zobrotera.
Today, while the project has just been selected to join the famous Metaverse All-Star staking pool on KuCoin alongside the tenors of the field such as Axie Infinity, The Sandbox, Decentraland, Enjin…, the latest news has just been released: a large-scale partnership with Blockchain Cuties Universe has been signed! A “cross-NFT” collaboration with the objective to erase the borders between the different game universes and networks.
A particularly important collaboration for RBL Labs which evokes a long-term partnership with the aim of developing “inter-playability” between blockchains.
