The scheduled fork will commence on Saturday, August 15 and it will seek to introduce a number of improvements on the existing ecosystem. There will be bug fixes and general improvements, the company announced.
The first huge improvement is the addition of Non-Fungible Tokens or NFTs for short. According to Peerplays, this is a sure-fire winner and move ahead for blockchain ecosystems. These assets are considered unique digital assets that can be collected – not necessarily by default – and used later on.
In a way, Peerplays can create assets akin to CryptoKitties, a popular game developed for the Ethereum blockchain. There will be two types of NFTs tokens, too.
The second type of NFT, however, will be part of the company’s partnership with Avalon Meta, an educational startup. Apart from adding NFTs and partnering up with various initiatives, Peerplays has spent a fair amount of time developing blockchain gaming.
The company has a Random Number Generator (RNG) used in online casinos developed internally and certified by GLi. Peerplays argues to be the only developer with a state-of-the-art algorithm that can verify if the outcomes in online blockchain games are accurate and fair.
It has been a huge leap for the company that is looking to consolidate its standing in the online gaming segment. Peerplays is branching out in all realms of blockchain gaming, including betting, unique proprietary gaming titles, as well as traditional casino games.
