The Fifth Blockchain Will Be …
The summer of 2020 is going to be huge for Blockchain Cuties Universe.
We are launching the game on the fifth platform!
And it is … Matic!
Ever since blockchain technology appeared, many people wished for it to go mainstream and change the world for the better.
Ethereum was revolutionary and got the entire blockchain gaming industry started. We were thrilled to be among the first games, that use ETH smart contracts for in-game transactions.
Ethereum allowed us to give Cutieneers real ownership of their in-game assets as well as an open, transparent, and secure marketplace.
But there were challenges both for us and for the entire industry.
When there were too many people using Ethereum at the same time, every action took a lot of time, and transaction costs went up significantly. Unfortunately, cases when buying a Cutie includes substantial transaction costs and takes hours, are sometimes unavoidable on this chain.
It was also a challenge to onboard new players since the whole process required for them to have some blockchain knowledge. Many new players left Blockchain Cuties and other games, just because of getting frustrated over the complexity of blockchain wallets, transactions, and processes.
For us, it was really sad to sometimes see Cutieneers forced to wait, overpay and dance around gas prices. It also was one of the barriers for our and other blockchain games to develop and break into the mainstream.
Since Ethereum established itself as a go-to platform for games and other dapps, new blockchains tried to replicate its success and take over as the preferred gaming and dapp platform. And we always welcomed more variety and new opportunities by launching Blockchain Cuties Universe on multiple blockchains. We also invested a lot of time into making the gaming process as user-friendly as possible.
But as time went by, we saw that Ethereum and its challenges are here to stay.
So when we heard about Matic, we were thrilled to find out that the blockchain world might finally find an answer to Ethereum’s challenges, while keeping all the aspects people value in it.
Matic has found a solution to decrease both transaction costs and waiting times. All that, while not compromising any aspects of security and decentralization.
Matic Network provides scalable, secure, and instant Ethereum transactions using Plasma side chains and a Proof-of-Stake network.
Matic’s key features are:
- Scalability: Fast, low-cost and secure transactions
- High Throughput: Achieved up to 10,000 TPS on a single sidechain with multiple chains to be added for horizontal scaling
- User Experience: Smooth UX and developer abstraction from mainchain to Matic chain; native mobile apps and SDK with WalletConnect support
- Security: Matic chain operators are themselves stakers in the Proof-of-Stake system
- Public Sidechains: Matic sidechains are public in nature (vs. individual DApp chains), permissionless and capable of supporting multiple protocols
We are teaming up with Matic because of its great potential to cover a big variety of use cases.
We also love Matic for their mass adoption potential. Speed and comfort are two of the key values of Matic. And we would like nothing more than seeing happy Cutieneers enjoy seamless, fast, and intuitive blockchain experience.
Another fun fact about Matic is that it comes from India. We are stoked to welcome new Cutieneers from all parts of the world. Especially those that we never tapped into. We are sure that new Cutieneers from India will bring novel strategies and their unique personality into the game and our community as a whole.

Blockchain Cuties and Matic
By launching the game on Matic, we hope to free Cutieneers from the challenges of Ethereum.
If you play on Matic, you will no longer have to pay exuberant gas prices and endure endless wait times.
Matic will handle transactions in a new, more efficient way.
Cost-efficiency for our players is one of the core values of our game. We put a lot of effort into trying to save you guys the costs of playing. Integrating Matic might become a game changer for Cutieneers who love Ethereum as well as the new players joining the game.
We are also inspired by the opportunities that Matic presents for our future development. With fast and cost-efficient transactions game-wide we could introduce many more blockchain-powered features for you guys to enjoy.
Just a few days ago, Matic launched its mainnet.
We prepared for this moment and Blockchain Cuties Universe is ready to become one of the first games on this new blockchain.
We can’t be more thrilled to join them on the journey to mass adoption.
Right now we are making the final preparations in cooperation with Matic’s team. Both teams want to make sure that Matic dapps are working perfectly before we present Blockchain Cuties Universe on Matic to you guys.
Currently, we are in the testing stage, and both of our teams are working hard to weed out all the bugs, so everything runs smoothly right from the get-go.
What will happen in Cutieland?
Blockchain Cuties Universe launch on Matic will be huge.
We prepared all kinds of awesomeness for Cutieneer and Matic’s communities.
In the coming months look out for:
- Giveaways both from Matic and Blockchain Cuties
- Matic exclusive Cuties
- Blockchain Cuties’ markets running on Matic
We’re in for a marvelous ride to the launch on Matic, and we are excited to invite you to join us.
Matic might just be the future of blockchain gaming, and we can’t wait to give you guys a piece of that pie.
The color of the summer of 2020 is Matic’s sky blue, because we are going to the moon!
