Chainlink Brings Usernames to War Riders

The blockchain-powered massively multiplayer online game War Riders has integrated Chainlink to enable the full usage of human-readable usernames. Using regular nicknames players will be able to deposit and withdraw assets and currencies from and to their game account. The solution uses off-chain scalability, while providing lower costs for crypto transfers.

In War Riders players can earn cryptocurrencies by battling and mining. Players are using customized war vehicles to battle opponents and steal currencies. In addition these vehicles allow them to mine currencies in the open-world of the game.

The game stores all ownership of Benzene (BZN) in a game pool smart contract on the Ethereum blockchain. As a result players are free to extract their in-game currencies to an external wallet at any given time. However, users will need to link their Ethereum wallet to War Riders with the help of Chainlink’s technology. Each player has a nickname linked to an Ethereum wallet.

The battle for BZN gives War Riders a nice play-to-earn mechanic. However, players do need to obtain at least one vehicle to play the game. Currently all players receive a vehicle for free.

What is War Riders?

War Riders is an massively multiplayer online battle racing game made by game studio Cartified. BZN is the native in-game currency, which can be obtained by mining inside the post-apocalyptic world of the game. Players can use their BZN to purchase guns, additional garages, nitro boosts and a lot more.

In War Riders players can build their own war vehicles from scratch with customized logos and messaging. They can use their vehicle to mine Benzene or steal it from other players. Become the most powerful and wealthy army by expanding your garage locations, buying better weapons, and killing for influence. Offer protection to other players and earn more BZN.

War Riders seeks to be fully transparent about the token economics. Gamers can’t buy BZN tokens. Instead, players earn the majority of the tokens during the in-game mining process. The more vehicles a player owns, the more he earns. Benzene’s pool will eventually deflate, thanks to our state of the art ‘burning’ mechanism. Every time a player buys something with BZN from our marketplace, 30% of tokens used in the transaction will burn, and the rest will go back to the mining pool.

War Riders is organizing a sale of mid-grade vehicles in September. The developers have set the price of one BZN to 0.5 dollars. On Opensea there are already vehicles to be found. The most rare one is listed for 100 ETH, while a simple War Truck goes for 0.06 ETH. In addition 0.4 ETH gives you a nice bundle with four different vehicles. Non-fungible tokens represent the vehicles inside War Riders. Each unique token connects to a specific in-game truck, hovercraft or car.
