The famous Star Trek spaceship will now be available in the form of digital collectibles in the CSC game which can be traded in-game or even to third-party marketplaces.
The blockchain-based gaming industry is all set to get a major boost! Lucid Sight, the blockchain games developer has recently joined hands with media company CBS Interactive to bring the very famous “Star Trek” gameplay on the blockchain platform.
As part of this deal, the two companies will work towards introducing the iconic starship from Star Trek to the digital universe via an open-universe game dubbed Crypto Space Commander (CSC). Thus, the CSC players will be able to command starships which can mine, harvest, and craft items.
Lucid Sight notes that the CSC game will thus be able to provide “provable, transferable, transparent and delegated control” for all its in-game digital collectibles.
Selling Star Trek Spaceships as Digital Collectibles
Besides, for a limited time, the game will be selling its most recognizable starships in the form of digital collectibles. Each spaceship sold on the CSC will be uniquely numbered and secured in the form of tokens on the Ethereum blockchain network.
Using Ethereum’s ERC-721 standard which allows for the creation of unique and non-fungible tokens, all the digital collectibles in the CSC can be full tradable within the game as well as on third-party marketplaces. Lucid Sight CTO and co-founder Fazri Zubair said:
“‘Star Trek’ inspired me at a young age to pursue a career in technology, it is such a privilege to get the chance to bring ‘Star Trek’ into a new frontier with the first blockchain U.S.S. Enterprise”.
Over the last few years, Lucid Sight has emerged as one of the famous app and game development studios. Besides, the company has got a wide portfolio in AR and VR titles which include some very popular names like the “Justice League”.
Fascinated with the growth of the Ethereum platform and its ability to host decentralized apps (DApps), Lucid Sight was attracted to try its games on the blockchain platform. The Lucid Sight team states:
“Crypto has always been a point of interest for our CEO Randy & CTO Fazri, and as we saw the Ethereum platform develop in 2015 / 2016, we felt it was the right medium for the company to focus its efforts on. Late 2016 / early 2017 we began blockchain development focusing on gaming and collectibles.
What’s exciting about this space is that it represents a completely new frontier-not just in games, but ultimately in the way we fundamentally live. Now those who regularly spend countless hours playing games can have both ownership of the items they buy or create and also become participants in the real-world economy of these games via cryptocurrency”.
