Ludos and Iron Throne Join Forces to Conquer Blockchain Gaming
Those familiar with Ludos know that it is a public blockchain with the vision of building a decentralized platform for games, gamers, and game developers. Ludos Protocol is the foundation and technical support of Ludos’ ecological construction. In order to build a fair global game ecosystem and gaming platform for all parties involved, Ludos will not only use cutting-edge blockchain-based technologies, but also foster partnerships with various relevant companies that will help our community grow and prosper.
The thriving game industry today does not mean that there are no issues present in the current game industry and Ludos’ founding members, who have a wealth of experience in this field, have their own ideas on how to both adapt to and resolve the problems faced by the gaming industry. More to the point, Ludos believes that the gaming industry is facing a revolution. Since we have decided to welcome this revolution, we must ensure that we are ‘armed’ accordingly. But… battles are not fought alone. And this month, we have welcomed a like-minded partner — Iron Throne — to help us march to victory!
What is Iron Throne?
The team behind Iron Throne are committed to the development of blockchain technology & applications and are pioneers in the development and distribution of blockchain games. Iron Throne is the world’s first blockchain real-time tactical strategy game where all the game assets, systems, and gameplay are transacted on a public blockchain. This game combines the diversified development framework of traditional games and presents entertaining game strategies, multiplayer elements, coupled with blockchain technology.
Iron Throne Gameplay
In Iron Throne, players can play an empire lord or tribal leader, bid for territory, mine ITT (Iron Throne Token), collect rent, recruit soldiers, and dominate the field of battle. In wartime, the community is called to forge alliances of their own making, deploy troops to win the epic victories, and acquire massive wealth and glory together with their friends!
How will Ludos and Iron Throne Join Forces?
Iron Throne will be implemented on the Ludos platform, in order to take full advantage of our PoW+PoS hybrid consensus, which implements the chain-side contract interaction protocol of the state channel and cross-chain interaction protocol, based on Plasma’s multi-sidechain and cross-chain protocol.
Ludos has registered with LudPay in Japan based on this technology, enabling the interoperability of virtual assets and physical currency. Not only that, but Ludos’ technology has also been recognized by Softbank, who will be cooperating with Ludos to develop a wallet application in the future. Furthermore, Ludos has already received invitations to discuss strategic cooperation from large corporations such as IBM, Lotte Group, and Yokohama Bank.
INFUN, the core team behind Iron Throne, has previously worked for Tencent Tianmei L1 Studio (R&D studio responsible for ‘King’s Glory’). Their team incorporates the essence of traditional games into blockchain gaming, creating rich gameplay with in-depth systems on the blockchain.
Similarly, Ludos’ management team also aggregates the best contemporary game developers, cryptographers, and big data experts that have a stellar track record, having have been a part of the development cycle of standout games. Ludos’ team also has diverse academic backgrounds with degrees from top universities around the globe — such as Yale, Boston, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), UC Irvine, Wisconsin-Madison, Peking University, and various other prestigious universities from Japan, China, and the United States. In addition to this, the Ludos team also has professional experience working for global corporations such as Microsoft and Blizzard.
It is our hope and will that Ludos’ partnership with Iron Throne leads to a new revolution in the gaming industry, pioneering the era of gaming + blockchain.
How will Ludos and Iron Throne Power the Revolution?
From the perspective of current blockchain games, the problems mainly occur in the low transaction speed, high development threshold, lack of game categories, and lack of token usage scenarios. A number of issues have led to the mindset that the current blockchain-powered games industry is more of a gimmick, rather than being a credible alternative. Some of the problems facing blockchain games today are that they lack platform maturity, face development challenges, and often suffer from low efficiency on the mainchain.
Ludos Plasma implemented a partial sidechain expansion based on Plasma Cash — Ludos Plasma allows users to securely transfer Fungible or non-fungible tokens to the game sidechain and safely return to the main chain after completing the interaction. At the same time, Ludos Plasma provides a Challenge period (initially 3 days), blocking the possibility of actual damage from malicious actions by side-chain users and Plasma Operator. So Iron Throne players will have Ludos Plasma assign a unique ID to the Token stored on the sidechain network, making it non-fungible and having an independent transaction history.
Ludos and Iron Throne do not support direct value interaction between sidechains. Instead, cross-game digital asset transactions require that the assets of the sidechain be returned to the main chain through the root contract and then through the main chain. This does sacrifice some efficiency and costs higher transaction fees, but it guarantees the feasibility of atomic trading, as well as asset security.
In the future, Ludos and Iron Throne will establish their own ecological incentives, giving more benefits to players and establishing an early consensus. We believe that Ludos and Iron Throne will directly reinvigorate the stagnated development of the entire game industry.
About Iron Throne
Iron Throne is the world’s first strategy war game powered by blockchain where game tokens are truly circulated. IronThrone has reached deep cooperation with plenty of exchanges so far. 60% of the total ITT will be distributed to all players for free in the game through the mining system. Iron Throne runs on the smart contract of Ethereum, which helps to ensure the game’s transparency and justice. Every battle will be recorded using smart contract, making sure that all data is transparent and can be checked on-chain.

About Ludos Protocol
Ludos Protocol is a purpose-built blockchain infrastructure project for the gaming community. As only the third blockchain project to be backed by Japanese investment giant Softbank, Ludos addresses numerous shortcomings in the existing gaming landscape. Its main chain + multi-sidechain architecture allows games to run entirely on their own blockchain, preventing scalability issues that have plagued previous blockchain-based games. Additionally, the Protocol seeks to create a gamer-friendly ecosystem whereby game developers and gamers can come together to easily crowdfund and build on the platform. The use of non-fungible tokens (NFT’s) within the ecosystem will allow gamers to swap assets in one game for assets in another. Finally, through their partnership with FullPay Japan, Ludos will give gamers the chance to use LUD tokens that are earned in-game to shop and buy at a range of retail stores in Japan and later the world.
