GameFi dedicated public chain emerges (part2)

Recently, Axie Infinity, a pet development game on the blockchain, announced that the bottom token RON of the sidechain Ronin has begun liquid mining. In just a few days, the locked-up value (TVL) on the Ronin chain has poured into billions of dollars. Currently, TVL remains at around 1.4 billion dollars.

Ronin can be said to be the exclusive chain of AxieInfinity, and it is also one of the cases where chain games with higher network efficiency requirements solve the inefficiency and high consumption of public chain infrastructure. Practitioners on the GameFi track began to develop a single game product, and began to explore the proprietary infrastructure for building on-chain games.

Compared with other applications on the chain, the game pays more attention to the silky feel of the experience. Currently, the public chain king Ethernet Square still Gas due to high costs, congestion and other problems for a variety of applications on the chain brought hinder the development of other flagship high efficiency, low consumption Despite growing public chain, but the eco-user, developer resources than Not being listed on Ethereum is detrimental to the growth of application traffic and development and construction. Especially the phenomenon-level GameFi applications, if they plan to develop in a large ecological and platform-style direction, the performance problems of the basic public chain will not be solved, they will become a shackle.

As a result, dedicated chains dedicated to applications such as games and NFTs have appeared, and Ronin is just one of them. The main features of these chain games exclusive chains are high throughput, low handling fees, and even have modules specifically built for chain games. They have emerged with the help of GameFi outlets. The 34th issue of DeFi Honeycomb sorted out the aggregation platform of the GameFi track and formed the (Part 1) content. As the (Part 2) of the 34th issue, today we will take stock of GameFi’s dedicated chain and representative games that are active on each chain.

AxieInfinity proprietary chain Ronin


Ronin (RON) is an on-chain NFT game expansion solution, created specifically for the leader Axie Infinity , and it claims to be moving in the direction of “the most commonly used Ethereum side chain for NFT games”. Ronin was created by the Sky Mavis team, Sky Mavis is also the development team of the chain game Axie Infinity.

About why a separate public chain is needed for a game?

The Sky Mavis team explained that the current expansion schemes on Ethereum are usually designed for DeFi applications or simple on-chain asset exchanges, while the requirements of Axie Infinity chain games are very complex. The behavior and quantity of on-chain interactions Traditional DeFi applications are quite different. More importantly, game players pay more attention to the playability of games and the smoothness of the network experience, and they have extremely high demands on the network. On the Ethereum chain, you have to pay high GAS fees at every turn, or encounter congestion problems on the chain, which will cause a very bad experience for players and affect the reputation of the game. In order to solve the problem of congestion in Ethereum and excessive gas fees, the Sky Mavis team built the Ethereum side chain Ronin by themselves.


On the Ronin chain, instant confirmation and seamless transactions can be realized, and the gas fee can be significantly lower. Players can enter the Axie Infinity game through the Ronin Wallet wallet. There is no need to register the Ethereum wallet to transfer assets to Ronin, thus simplifying the player participation process .

In mid-November, the Ronin side chain launched the first DEX Katana on the chain to support the exchange of various assets generated by the application on the chain. Currently, there is a liquidity pool of AxieInfinity game assets AXS, SLP and ETH .

In order to expand Katana’s liquidity, Ronin has announced that it will take out the on-chain ecological token RON to provide rewards for users who provide liquidity. The number of rewards for this round of liquidity providers is 1/10 of the total supply, which is 100 million RON. . The pass will also become a payment tool for network gas fees. Ronin also built Bridge to allow users to use Ethereum assets to enter and exit the chain.

It should be noted that Ronin’s website has not been officially launched, and users need to pay attention to official information.

  • Axie Infinity

Axie Infinity (AXS) is an encrypted digital pet development game originally built on Ethereum. In May of this year, it migrated to the self-built sidechain Ronin. At present, its transaction volume and number of users are the first in the chain game track. name.

Game players can breed, breed and trade NFT fantasy creatures Axies, and they can also use it to fight against other players’ pets. Players need to use ETH to purchase 3 NFT Axie pets to enter the game. Different characteristics determine different pet roles. Players achieve competitive victory or complete tasks in the game, that is, obtain game asset reward SLP, and SLP can be realized in the secondary market into encrypted assets, realizing the “Play to Earn” chain game purpose.

Axie Infinity games have two major game assets, SLP and AXS. SLP is used for pet breeding and is also an in-game reward asset; AXS is mainly used for game improvement proposal proposals and voting governance.

NFT chain game transaction chain WAX


WAX (WAXP), the full name of Worldwide Asset eXchange, is a public chain dedicated to building NFTs. It is based on the transformation of the EOS public chain and inherits the Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) consensus mechanism to achieve high throughput on the chain. It currently focuses on games, game props and NFT collection scenarios.

According to the official website, WAX claims to be the “King of NFT”. This is not unfamiliar, because WAX ​​has cooperated with other customers to issue a number of well-known NFTs, including Major League Baseball (Topps) and Hollywood actor William Shatner ( William Shatner) and “Street Fighter (Capcom)” game developer.

 WAX official network


WAX Blockchain is committed to providing services for NFT virtual asset transactions on the chain, for developers and ordinary users. For developers, it provides game, DApp, transaction application development and chain service modules; for users, it opens the chain for the purchase, sale and transaction of game props.

You can understand it as the “Taobao” or “Jingdong” of various assets on the chain. Game and DApp developers are merchants, players and users are buyers, and WAX is a platform that connects merchants and users. It can help developers make products, and also provide them with resource support to help find real users; and gamers or users with virtual asset trading needs can find suppliers here.

The token of the WAX ​​network is WAXP, which supports activities and functions on the chain. When trading game assets, users can pay with WAXP. It should be noted that WAXP (supply of 3.7 billion) is displayed as WAXE (supply of 3.7 million) on the Ethereum chain, and holders of both can complete the exchange at the ratio of 1000 WAXP to 1 WAXE through the conversion channel. When going from the WAX ​​chain to Ethereum, the user WAXP will be destroyed and get the Ethereum version of WAXE.

Land can be purchased in the game’s trading market. After owning the land, players can use the NFT “shovel” to mine. If other players also want to mine on your land, you can collect commissions. Players can also join forces with other players in the “Planet Colony” game.

Alien World requires players to cooperate while competing. On the one hand, players compete with each other for limited resources-planet land; on the other hand, players on the same planet can also cooperate with each other to fight against other planets and compete for resources on each other’s planet together.

TLM is an Alien World game asset with a total issuance of 5 billion, which is mainly used to motivate players. The game distributes a certain amount of TLM to each piece of land every day, which is also the mine that players mine on the land. TLM can also be used to pledge to the DAO of the planet where it is located, and vote for the planet leader. The more TLM pledged on a planet, the more minerals produced on the planet’s plots.

  • Farming game Famers World

Famers World is called “Farmers World” in Chinese and runs on the WAX ​​network. It is also an NFT game. The player’s role in the game is a “farmer”, using game tools to obtain resources, produce “crops”, harvest gold coins or NFT rewards, continuously upgrade their farming tools, develop various resources, purchase land to expand the farm, and experience The pleasure of a farmer.

The harvested food can restore physical strength; Gold (gold coins) is a resource for mining, and the equipment used to obtain it is different, and the durability consumed is different, while gold coins are essential materials for repairing equipment durability and synthesizing equipment.

The three resources correspond to the three assets FWW (Wood), FWF (Food), and FWG (Gold), which can be purchased or sold on DEX on the WAX ​​chain.

DApp dedicated chain Chromia


Chromia (CHR) is a blockchain network for the deployment of decentralized application DApps, which aims to solve the scalability problem of building DApps on the chain.

Chromia official website


At present, DApps on Ethereum are usually deployed through smart contracts, and application operation needs to be subject to the performance and rules of Ethereum. In the process of using DApp, users need to pay gas fees for each authorization, transaction and interaction. Ethereum’s high gas fees limit the frequency of users using DApps and also limit the development of DApp applications to build complex functions.

On the Chromia chain, all DApps built by developers can be extended horizontally into a single side chain, which gives developers more flexibility and control. Since Chromia does not charge users for transactions, but adopts an overall charging method, developers can independently formulate fees and resource usage rules on the side chain.

In the chain game, the player has to pay for each step, which will affect the player’s experience. When Chromia builds a game DApp, developers can set a one-time fee, that is, the player does not pay during the game, but only pays once in the final stage. The specific payment amount is determined by the developer, which gives the developer the ability to design and commercialize the game. Permission to link income.

CHR is the token of the Chromia chain, with a total supply of about 1 billion. It is mainly used to pay for gas fees on the chain. It pledges CHR to become a node of the chain to ensure the normal operation of the network. In addition, it is also a payment custody for DApp developers. Fee settlement tool. Since the developer obtains income from the DApp through its own consumption rules, the hosting fee paid by the developer can be used to compensate the income of the Chromia node.
