A multiblockchain game says it delivers a unique blend of decentralized finance and nonfungible tokens, or NFTs — meaning players, developers, traders and crypto veterans all benefit.
The team behind the Blockchain Cuties Universe claims traditional gaming presents a plethora of problems. Players never truly own the items they purchase, and these assets often lack interoperability with other games.
Although blockchain technology does help alleviate some of these pain points, the team argues that issues still remain. A difficult onboarding process can be offputting for newcomers who are buying crypto for the first time, transactions can be slow and expensive, and there’s a real lack of a “play to earn” element.
Blockchain Cuties Universe is aiming to usher in a new era of gaming through the launch of its very first governance token, which sits at the heart of a diverse ecosystem. The project’s infrastructure streamlines the registration process across five blockchains, ensures transactions can be completed instantly and cheaply, and gamifies the governance process.
It’s hoped that this closed-loop approach will help create synergy between all stakeholders — including players, decentralized autonomous organization participants, liquidity providers and game creators. As well as serving as a means of payment, BCUG serves as a staking instrument that produces derivative tokens and as a farming instrument.
Giving everyone a voice
According to Blockchain Cuties Universe, this innovation will ensure that continued investment can be made in this cutting-edge game, which was ahead of the curve when it launched in April 2018. Better still, players will be able to use BCUG tokens to participate in votes and make a meaningful contribution to the game’s future direction. The project takes pride in being one of the few games to survive the harsh crypto winter, along with the likes of CryptoKitties and Axie Infinity.
More than 1,700 people took part in an initial DEX offering for BCUG on Polkastarter. According to the project, the tokens sold out in seven minutes.
At present, the DeFi and NFT mechanics set out by the project remain in development — and the first elements are expected to appear in the game within weeks. In-game payments will initially arrive, followed by liquidity mining and farming. The DAO will then be gradually released in three phases between now and the end of the year.

Standing out from the crowd
With more than one year of playable content in the Blockchain Cuties Universe, developers say that gamers who get involved with this exciting project have plenty to look forward to. The platform says Cuties are among the most customizable NFTs on the market, with millions of potential combinations when it comes to body parts and colors among eight different species. More than 970 unique-looking items are also available in the game.
Better still, any character or person can be transformed into a Blockchain Cutie — and players have the chance to order custom, personal in-game characters based on their actual appearance.
No game is complete without an engaged, enthusiastic community. Blockchain Cuties Universe hopes the arrival of BCUG will ensure its project evolves in line with what users want, and that the governance system will become part of the core gameplay going forward.
