Following the launch of the EOS-based WAX blockchain, more games are looking to take advantage of this new opportunity.
WAX launched with a version of EOS hit Prospectors, which quickly generated more users than the original: over 6,000 to 2,200 according to WAX.
WAX has also announced forthcoming releases Dark Country, Chain Clash and EOS social app Karma will launch on WAX in 2020.
Making it easy
WAX uses the EOS.IO SDK making it relatively easy for developers to port their EOS games.
Another reason to make the transition is WAX’s managed Cloud Wallet, which enables users to sign up and log in with their existing social accounts for free and without any required knowledge of how a blockchain works.
In contrast, setting up an EOS wallet from scratch is both complex and requires a small payment.
Finally, EOS dapps and games are currently experienced a hostile opening environment on EOS due to the continuing network congestion created by the EIDOS token airdrop.
This has seen the most popular EOS games shedding over half their active player base.
To further encourage this transition, WAX has announced a 30-day EOS-to-WAX Challenge, which will see 10 products receiving $2,500 each in co-marketing support.
