A new universe of payment options
Following its recent support for Bitcoin, Spyr has announced it’s added further options for players to make cryptocurrency purchases in its web game Pocket Starships.
Players buy planets, which create in-game resources for them
Thanks to integration with altcoin payment gateway CoinPayments, you can now choose to use over 150 cryptocurrencies, including Ripple (XRP), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Monero (XMR) and Neo (NEO).
The next jump
In Pocket Starships, players buy planets, which create in-game resources for them. In addition, because these planets will themselves be blockchain assets, players will in future be able to trade their planets.
Spyr will generate revenue by charging for the upkeep of planets and taking a share of all planet trading in the game. New planets will also be released on a regular basis.
“The ability to own a planet that creates in-game resources is something that will appeal to our players and keeping the planet on the blockchain will allow Spyr to work with other developers and publishers to have the planets exist in any number of space-themed games,” commented CEO James R. Thompson.
