Litecoin (LTC) creator Charlie Lee and CipSoft CEO Stephan Vogler have reportedly disclosed the roll-out of LiteBringer – a role-playing fantasy game operating upon the foundation of the Litecoin blockchain.
Specifically, both Lee and Vogler revealed details of the project during an online event hosted by the Litecoin Foundation on Sept. 15.
“It’s the first major game that utilizes the Litecoin blockchain for all of its interactions,” Lee reportedly claimed.
Vogler reportedly claimed that the game comes with full decentralized status, which means a running node is required for each player to be able to play. Moreover, it is compulsory for players to have Litecoin in their possession to jump into the game.
The game reportedly offers a “Litecoin faucet” feature, enabling a few users to obtain some Litecoin for free, should they don’t want to or isn’t capable of finalizing the transactions on their own.
“Every move in the game is a transaction on the Litecoin blockchain that creates value. If you’re a good player, LiteBringer will live up to its name, and may bring you some Litecoins.” Vogler reportedly remarked.
Per Vogler, all weapons, characters, and items in LiteBringer are reportedly kept on the LTC Blockchain, which is “absolutely secure and decentralized”, since no transmission will be carried out for private keys.
CipSoft reportedly selected the LTC blockchain for its popularity and the fact it carries low transaction fees of “less than a cent per transaction.”
