Running on Aeternity
Most trading card games run on the Ethereum blockchain, with Splinterlands being an exception as it uses Hive. Cryptic Legends is using the Aethernity blockchain. All cards are stored on the blockchain, giving players ownership over their own assets.
Aeternity is a rather small blockchain. In terms of market cap it just fall outside the top 100 blockchains according to Coinmarketcap. The organization behind the blockchain has been formed in 2016, while the mainnet has been live since 2018. The platform positions itself as a scalable and secure blockchain for decentralized applications. It uses sharding as its main proposition for scaling.
