It’s been a while since our last roadmap update (Q4 2018 — Q1 2019), and a lot has happened in the meantime.
So it’s time for another update.
Before we start, I know…
This post is bound to ruffle a few feathers 😜
Most of you reading this probably have one preferred blockchain of choice, and likely think that the other two chains in this list are run by a bunch of [idiots/scammers/insert-your-pejorative-of-choice].
That’s totally fine. I’m not going to try to change your mind.
But what I hope to do by the end of this article is convince you that linking these chains together is a development that not only was inevitable — a natural evolution of the blockchain ecosystem as a whole — but also one that will massively benefit the developers and end users of all three chains. …
A few days ago, we announced a cross-promotion between Binance and Zombie Battleground that included a $10,000 BNB giveaway.
This promotion required adding some additional functionality to Loom Basechain, where the Zombie Battleground card pack purchase contract lives:
You’ve waited patiently… And it’s finally here!
Today we’re proudly launching CryptoZombies Season 2.
(And with a pretty major surprise announcement as well…)
Let’s take a look at what’s inside.
For the uninitiated, CryptoZombies.io is an interactive code school that teaches you to write smart contracts in Solidity through building your own crypto-collectibles game. It’s the most popular Ethereum programming tutorial to date, with over 300,000 students and counting.
The first thing you’ll notice is that CryptoZombies has gotten a new coat of paint — making it look approximately 347% more badass than before.
We’ve totally reorganized the site in order to separate the content into multiple course tracks, which you can pick and choose based on what you want to learn. …
These sidechains use Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) as a consensus mechanism. …
You’ve waited patiently for forever… and it’s finally coming!
CryptoZombies Season 2 is coming to upgrade your blockchain-app-developing, Solidity-slaying dev skills to the next level.
Let’s take a brief stroll through history.
On December 13th, 2017, we released CryptoZombies — an interactive code school that teaches users to write Ethereum DApps through building their own crypto-collectables game.
Since then, it’s been translated into 9 languages and gone on to become one of the most popular resources for learning Ethereum development around the world — with almost 300,000 students at the time of this writing.
That’s a lot of people learning to build Ethereum DApps! …
What’s up everyone!
The past 2 months have been extremely busy here at Loom Network.
If you’ve been following us, you’ve noticed that our announcements have been largely focused around our blockchain-based collectible card game, Zombie Battleground, and the Kickstarter we used to promote the benefits of blockchain games to over 12 million mainstream gamers.
But this recent focus in our announcements around a single game has caused some people to ask:
Why do you guys keep talking about this game?! …
Last week, we released the Alpha version of Zombie Battleground, the world’s first truly scalable blockchain game.
When we say “truly scalable”, what we mean is that unlike the blockchain games we’ve seen up until now, Zombie Battleground looks and feels exactly like any normal mobile or PC game.
No MetaMask popups, no gas fees. End users don’t need to own any cryptocurrency, have an Ethereum account, or even know what a blockchain is in order to start playing. …
HOOOLY SHLAZAAANG 😮
After a 2-month long, wildly successful Kickstarter campaign — and funded in only 1 day — Zombie Battleground is available in playable form for early backers in EARLY ALPHA.
The word alpha might conjure up a virile chimp beating its chest, howling, and ready to mate — but in this context, it has nothing to do with chimps OR mating…
Yes — you read that correctly 😮
Zombie Battleground — the game we’ve been developing in-house for quite a while, is now officially crowdfunding on Kickstarter.
It’s a Magic: The Gathering-style collectible card game we previewed last month where all your cards are stored on the blockchain. …
