Gaming On Blockchain- Free to play and Play to earn

in #blockchain3 years ago (edited)

Everyone would love to earn money while playing a game like in the movie “Ready Player One”. While this may seem to be a dystopian future, it has been made possible with Blockchain technology, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality.

Coincidentally, Blockchain technology is a natural solution in making this dystopian future reality as users can now earn Cryptocurrency while playing games that are built on the Blockchain.

Unique avatars and other virtual items built by users can now be safely stored on the Blockchain and traded between users with the in-game Cryptocurrency as the form of exchange. These transactions are transparent on the Blockchain and reduce any form of transaction disputes.

Read on to find out more about the Decimated gameplay and how you can use DIO tokens on the platform.
Decimated- A Post-Apocalyptic Survival Game

Earth has been destroyed. Civilization has fallen. After neglecting the effects of climate change, the catastrophic consequences have caught up with humanity, with cities decimated and criminals left to live in abandoned cities.

Set in a post-apocalyptic world, the world of Decimated consists of two factions- Human citizens and Cyborg corps. According to the Decimated Whitepaper, users will start off as human citizens and can be selected to be a Cyborg cop after going through training and following the rules.

The main aim of this game is for users to survive and earn the DIO token by carrying out the following actions:

Exploring and salvaging cryptocurrency and technology
Undertaking legal or illegal jobs with varying risk/reward
Hijacking shipments/ambushing convoys
Escorting shipments and protecting them
Collecting bounties by imprisoning/killing players and target NPC’s
Breaking prisoners out of imprisonment for a reward
Buying/selling/trading items to other players or on the virtual market

Graphics and Blockchain features

The game will be created in Unreal Engine 4, a platform where world-class games have been built on. Fortnite and Injustice are just two popular games that have been built on this platform and have showcased outstanding graphics and gameplay.

For more information on the gameplay please refer to the Decimated Whitepaper over at

The platform will be run on the Halo platform, a hard fork from Ethereum specially designed for online multiplayer games. According to Decimated, the Halo platform can handle more than 5,000 transactions per second, instrumental for smooth gameplay.

The blockchain will be secured through Proof-of-Stake (PoS)

DIO Tokenomics

The DIO token is an ERC-20 token and has a total supply of 1 Billion tokens that are pre-minted at the genesis block. Primarily used as a means of payment on the platform, the design of the token economy is meant to manage the inflow and outflow of tokens from users, with the token becoming more scarce as more users are actively engaged in the game.

Users will be rewarded with DIO tokens by successfully referring new users to the game and completing missions their characters were tasked to do. In contrast, users will have DIO debited from their accounts when using in-game services such as paying for fast travel and transaction fees with vendors and other players.
In Summary

Blockchain technology has made earning from gaming a possibility for not only pro gamers but for the amateur player as well. However, limitations in the technological infrastructure and gameplay have resulted in slow progress on this front.

By building the Decimated game on Unreal Engine 4 and the Halo platform, the Decimated project seems well positioned to build a game that is up to market standard.

DIO is available for purchase on:

All of these exchanges offer a fiat gateway.


Great article, looks like a great game! I'm looking forward to it, and I already picked up some free DIO during the first Airdrop. More of those to come, as I understand it...
