Let’s travel back to the ancient times of 2018.
The first SnailFarm game had a simple premise: in this clone of ethershrimpfarm, you had snails producing eggs which you could hatch into more snails.
You could also sell these eggs to the smart contract, and buy eggs other players sold…
Hello, Eggfriends. Time for your favorite weekly checkup.
Beta rounds keep coming and going, on POA Network. We’re now finishing up round 4.
If you’ve always yearned to learn how to fight for survival in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, yearn no more: Eggforce has all the answers.
RADs are hatched, Lands…
This first round of Beta put unprecedented strain on the POA Network, but we got through it.
What happened through the game? What conclusions can we draw?

Today, let’s talk about this bankroll contract. …
Good news, Eggfans: testing is going swimmingly!
No bugs whatsoever. Every part of the game works exactly as planned.
All because I’m a smart person, and I write good code.
In all seriousness, stuff breaks. It breaks horribly. It breaks everywhere.
(Especially as I am not a smart person, and…
(You don’t need to read part 1 first, but why wouldn’t you?)
As previously mentioned, Eggforce will be split into a BANKROLL contract and a GAME contract.
More relevantly: the GAME contract is temporary.
Each round will run as a separate GAME contract, with a set duration. …
In last week’s article, I talked about the areas where decentralization breaks down.
Namely, implementing any feature in a decentralized manner adds complexity. The cost of that complexity may not be worth the benefit in the early stages of a DApp.
The goal becomes to strike a balance between keeping…
