VulcanForged no longer requires users to pay for gas fees as the ecosystem will sponsor all gas fees needed to trade, buy, sell or create NFTs. As a result the virtual world of VulcanVerse and for example the trading card game Berserk just became a whole lot more user friendly.
VulcanForged paying for the gas fees isn’t that tremendous, because gas fees on VeChain and the Polygon blockchain are really little. However, from the perspective of the user experience this is – of course – an important decision. Because this way anybody can trade, buy or sell without having the worry and experience gas fee surprises.
What’s even more interesting about this news, is the Vulcan Forged will soon no longer accept other cryptocurrencies. The entire ecosystem will embrace the native PYR token. Starting from May 10th at 4pm UTC all auctions will automatically switch from VeChain (VET) to the PYR token. The token is up almost 40% this week, probably driven by this news.
VulcanForged is an ecosystem with applications that use NFTs, but it’s also a game studio and a marketplace. They made VulcanVerse, while others developers work on other games. There’s lots of interoperability, especially for so-called Vulcanites NFTs. In addition there are play-to-earn mechanics, as players can earn cards in Beserk or offer other services within VulcanVerse.
