Etherization: Redefining Ownership and Historical Significance in the Gaming Industry

Published July 17, 2023

Etherization is transforming the gaming landscape with its revolutionary play-to-earn (P2E) game. Through the fusion of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) and ERC20 tokens, this innovative game delivers an immersive and dynamic gameplay experience. Its historical significance as one of the earliest NFTs deployed on September 16, 2016, and as a trailblazing play-to-earn game on Ethereum and other blockchains cannot be overstated. Etherization establishes genuine decentralization by empowering players with complete control over their in-game assets, while ensuring transparent recognition and rewards. Notably, the game showcases comprehensive decentralization in both frontend and backend operations, including decentralized domains like etherization.nft (unstoppable domains) and wethz.eth (ENS).

The game revolves around a strategic and immersive gameplay experience. Each city in Etherization is represented by an ERC721 token on a static 34x34 map, featuring unique names, descriptions, and diverse buildings that determine the rarity of the tokens. This historical significance brings depth and authenticity to the game's lore, establishing it as a trailblazer in the world of blockchain gaming.

Players can adopt two primary strategies to maximize their TOKEN revenues: the military and culture strategies. The military approach involves building armies, making towns vassals, and raiding their treasuries to accumulate wealth and power. However, players must exercise caution as vassals may rebel, seeking to reclaim their freedom and treasury, injecting excitement into the gameplay.

Developed using Solidity and deployed on the Ethereum network, Etherization has exciting plans for a layer 2 solution, expected to be implemented in June 2023. This upgrade will enhance scalability and reduce transaction costs, leading to a smoother and more cost-effective gaming experience. In the meantime, players can mint towns, secure prime spots on the map, and possess valuable historical NFTs, setting the stage for future gameplay advancements.

Etherization introduces the ERC20 TOKEN as the primary in-game currency. Each city generates a specific amount of TOKEN every 24 hours, serving as a key metric to evaluate a city's success. This economic model fosters healthy competition among players, driving them to strategize and optimize their city's TOKEN production.

The game encompasses three distinct types of units: pikemen, swordsmen, and knights. Each unit possesses unique strengths and weaknesses, adding depth and strategic possibilities to battles and raids. These units play a vital role in raiding other cities and defending one's own, enabling players to amass wealth and potentially make towns vassals to enhance TOKEN production.

Generals, represented as unique ERC721 tokens, hold significant influence over unit strength during offensive and defensive operations. Minting generals requires a specific number of TOKEN, introducing a strategic element to players' decision-making processes. The rarity and attributes of generals contribute to their overall effectiveness in battles, motivating players to seek and acquire powerful leaders to strengthen their armies.

Etherization's historical value cannot be understated, being one of the earliest NFTs in existence. Deployed in 2016, it stands as a testament to the longevity and innovation within the blockchain gaming industry, providing players with a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in a virtual world that encompasses different eras and civilizations.

Renowned NFT Archaeologists, Adam McBride and Leonidas, recognize the historical significance embedded within the Etherization project. McBride notes, "Etherization encapsulates the spirit of earlier projects, paying homage to its roots while pushing the boundaries of blockchain gaming." Leonidas adds, "The integration of NFTs and ERC721 tokens adds an exciting layer of ownership and value, allowing players to truly immerse themselves in a dynamic and rewarding gaming experience."

Etherization's strategic gameplay mechanics and historical value have firmly established it as a frontrunner in the blockchain gaming space.
