Cosmic Universe, Defira, and Harmony Play’s Pixel Warz had a good start of the month
The Harmony blockchain continues to bring novel GameFi and gaming dapps to its users, and there’s increased activity in that product segment. Cosmic Universe, Defira, and Harmony Play’s Pixel Warz are three of the most anticipated projects by the community.
- Harmony currently has around 1,500 new users coming to its GameFi sector daily. By introducing more GameFi dapps, Harmony’s DeFi Kingdoms aims to expand further.
- Cosmic Universe and Defira games have not yet been launched, but already driving heat discussion among future players.
- Moreover, the newly launched project Harmony Play has seen a nearly 40% increase in users over the past 30 days.
- These dapps, together with DeFi Kingdoms, lay a solid foundation for Harmony’s GameFi ecosystem, which has now attracted 95,651 unique active wallets over the past 30 days.
Gaming important for the blockchain industry
According to DappRadar Dapp Industry Report April edition, games continue to dominate in terms of blockchain usage, accounting for 52% of the industry’s unique active wallets. Moreover, the rigid demand of gaming users seems to be immune to crypto’s downward market trend, sending 1.23 million daily Unique Active Wallets (UAW) to smart contracts.
Blockchain gaming is crucial to the mass adoption of blockchain. Gaming dapps are building out unique experiences and creating new opportunities for non-crypto players to enter the space by incorporating mechanics like play-to-earn. Harmony is among those who put this goal into action.
Halfway through the second quarter of 2022, the Harmony ecosystem has witnessed several milestones in some of the most prominent GameFi dapps. Among those, we find titles like Cosmic Universe, Defira, and Harmony Play’s Pixel Warz. These gaming dapps together already attracted 20,000 users to join their Discord communities. However, some of these gaming products didn’t fully launch yet, setting expectations for a bright future.
Cosmic Universe – an immersive metaverse MMO journey
Cosmic Universe is a fantasy blockchain metaverse, world-builder, and MMORPG living on the Harmony blockchain. The game boasts mind-blowing visual elements and an immersive fantasy metaverse adventure where players explore realms, harvest, mine, develop increasingly-advanced plots, and level-up exclusive NFTs, etc.
The fully playable Cosmic Universe is set to launch later this year. Currently, players can already stake their NFT characters for in-game resources that will be useful in the larger ecosystem.
Defira – a fusion of DeFi and GameFi
Defira is a blockchain metaverse game launched on Harmony. The game is a fusion of DeFi and GameFi, leveraging both models to create a DeFi “super app” inside a fantasy game world.
The DeFi vision of Defira depicts a future where all major DeFi primitives will have a presence in the Defira “super app” with different DeFi tokens serving certain utilities in its virtual world. Tranquil Finance, the DeFi protocol on the Harmony blockchain, is first moving into the Defiraverse.
In addition, Defira’s gameplay features multiple game modes that allow players to obtain and develop in-game assets to interact with Defira’s game and DeFi mechanics. For example, to acquire a Genesis Hero NFT in Defira, players need to stake Tranquil Finance’s native token, TRANQ, to mint these exclusive NFTs.
A five-round of The Genesis Hero Mint has already started on April 5, and round five has kicked off with a raffle event. A prize pool of 225 Genesis Heroes is up for grabs! Users can check out Defira’s Twitter and Discord for more details.
Harmony Play’s Pixel Warz – shooter game with customizable characters
Harmony Play is an all-in-one multi-game platform built on the Harmony blockchain. The gaming platform taps into the esports spirit as players can compete with each other, climb the leaderboards, and participate in tournaments to earn the ecosystem token HPLAY.
Recently, Harmony Play welcomed its first narrative-driven story into the ecosystem by releasing the Pixel Warz NFT collection. These NFTs will serve as in-game characters, each with unique traits and different rarities.
The introduction of new GameFi projects into the Harmony ecosystem is what the community has been looking forward to. DeFi Kingdoms, a long-term leader on the Harmony blockchain, has proven that Harmony stands out when it comes to incubating GameFi dapps and supporting them to thrive.
All in all, the development progress made by Cosmic Universe, Defira, and Harmony Play’s Pixel Warz undoubtedly adds to the appeal of Harmony‘s ecosystem. Each of these gaming products brings a different user experience, enriching the Harmony ecosystem.
