Age of Rust’s founder, aliased
cloverme, shared an interesting story with us about the early days of Age of Rust:
We started on Counterparty back in 2017 for a couple of reasons, the big one was that ERC20 and ERC721 were still in their early days back then. Plus, blockchain games at that time were mostly Counterparty based. Our MVP game was a text-adventure token-enabled game that used the Counterparty tokens.
To take a step back, Counterparty was a token platform that used the Bitcoin blockchain. It had a really good community but services and games started to move away from it towards Ethereum. Before segwit and lightning, running anything on top of Bitcoin was a bit of a struggle, so players moved over to Ethereum too.
So earlier this year, I created a token wizard to migrate our Counterparty tokens over to Enjin tokens. Our hodlers sent their Counterparty tokens to a burner address and in return they received the new Enjin backed ERC1155 tokens. It was a good move — Counterparty was eventually delisted from the majority of exchanges. So the Counterparty community is now kind of isolated.
It’s been exciting to move to Ethereum and Enjin because the players have access to easy to use wallets and services like OpenSea to buy and sell assets, which was very very difficult on Counterparty.
Age of Rust’s roots run deep and they’ve consistently shown that they prioritize player experience over loyalty to any given tech stack. If you’re still not convinced that Age of Rust is a game worth experiencing, watch this trailer:
It looks incredible! Token Gamer called it the most beautiful blockchain game, and it’s easy to see why. If you’re ready to get in on the action, check out the selection of Age of Rust items on OpenSea here.
