BlockArcade has expanded to the WAX blockchain
For the first time we’ll be making BlockArcade’s first game StackWave available on a second blockchain. We’re doing this for a few reasons:
- Expand to a new engaged user base.
- Experiment with new and different technology.
- Bring a new user base to IOST.
We’ve thought long and hard about this expansion, and we believe it’s aligned with our goals for BlockArcade.
We originally wanted to port StackWave to EOS due to past experience with C++, the language used for smart contracts. Since then EOS has suffered from resource issues making using and running dapps more costly, so instead we’re going to expand to a promising sister chain.
StackWave is live on WAX
WAX was built with games in mind and has many features that makes it attractive for dapps. Two of our favorites:
This is our first release of StackWave on WAX, we plan on introducing more features overtime like the leaderboard and our TIX token!
Getting started with WAX
For those new to the WAX blockchain we recommend you create a cloud wallet using the WAX Cloud Wallet service: https://all-access.wax.io
WAX Cloud Wallet supports a large number of authentication methods and a slick two step login process. We think this is an impressive step towards improving the on-boarding process for dapps.
After creating a wallet and loading up with some WAX tokens you can play StackWave at: https://wax.blockarca.de
Thanks to the WAX Cloud Wallet you can play in any browser. StackWave also supports Scatter on desktop.
