The long overdue blockchain RPG Neon District is released on Etheree’s Layer 2 scaling solution Matic, according to a recent announcement.
The developer of the Neon District, Blockade Games will also move some of its community games to the network..
Could we finally enter the Neon District?
Neon District has been coming “soon” since October 2019when the upcoming launch was delayed by six months.
The game takes place in a dystopian future and focuses on rebels fighting an authoritarian government. Players improve their characters by completing quests and purchasing equipment in the form of non-consumable tokens.
These NFTs can be freely traded on an online marketplace in the Matic network.
Some avid gamers even bought units and inventory items in Octoberjust before the game was delayed. Although they have had no choice since then to maintain these NFTs, Cointelegraph has been informed that the assets will be freely negotiable in the next two months.
Neon District should be launched on the Loom networkbefore the Loom project announced that it had “switched from blockchain games to business” and devoted itself to AWOL.
Matic Network is a similar layer two scaling solution for the Ethereum blockchain. Supported by the leading cryptocurrency exchanges Binance and Coinbase, the company has grown in importance and added more than 50 decentralized apps to its PoS + plasma sidechain.
Second-tier solutions can perform better while significantly lowering gas prices for Ethereum transactions. Matic claims that its infrastructure can support 10,000 to 15,000 transactions per second and one or two block seconds.
Unfortunately, switching from Matic to the web won’t accelerate the arrival of the game itself. While the Neon District plans to “gain more experience in the third and fourth quarters of 2020”, the first official season will not be available until 2021.
