POGs to Do Battle on the Blockchain by KOGs on WAX
KOGs on WAX <> Worldwide Asset eXchange
Keys to Other Games, or KOGs, a brand new collection of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) set for creation under the banner of “KOGs on WAX.” These upcoming digital collectibles draw inspiration from the ’90s phenomenon, POGs — a collectible milk cap game immensely popular in schoolyards across the world.
Each KOG is a playable, blockchain-based token for use across an entire gaming ecosystem and will be interoperable with several upcoming games. Players can earn and trade KOGs to build their collection, as well as use them to enter tournaments.
Varying levels of rarity
Allows players to level up their in-game characters
Unlocks features, skins, and weapons in-game
Grants early and exclusive access to future titles
We’re pleased to announce the August 2020 launch of 100 limited-edition KOGs designs on the WAX Blockchain..
KOGs on WAX
No ’90s playground could escape the POGs frenzy. Players would slam stacks of game pieces, attempting to flip over as many as possible. The digital version — KOGs on WAX — retains some of the same characteristics but is an entirely different game.
KOGs on WAX provides many additional benefits to its real-world counterpart. Escaping limitation to a single game or function, KOGs are, as the name implies, Keys to Other Games.
Ben Fairbank, CEO and co-founder of RedFOX Labs, says of the pending launch:
“The need for value beyond trading is imperative. Players coming together across borders to compete in tournaments, compare collections, and trade items means the KOGs on WAX collection offers far more than run-of-the-mill NFTs.”
Being able to use KOGs in multiple games is just the beginning, but already offers a departure from legacy gaming models. The games will feature free-play and tournament modes, with a primary focus on mobile gameplay.
When looking to release a forward-thinking gaming ecosystem, few blockchains come to mind as being capable and fit-for-purpose. WAX is both progressive and disruptive, and an established market leader in all things NFT.
Game records, ownership, verification, and more will all be available thanks to the WAX Blockchain. WAX’s development tools showcase the project’s dedication to leading the blockchain video gaming sector.
Multiple variants factored into deciding to release KOGs on WAX. But three significant attributes make WAX stand apart from similar offerings:
1) WAX Cloud Wallet (WCW)
The WAX Cloud Wallet is one of the most user-friendly in the entire NFT ecosystem. Logging into the WCW is as simple as logging into an email account. Gamers can also access wallets by linking to a wide variety of social media platforms, including Discord, Steam, Twitch, and Twitter.
Offering something new or disruptive shouldn’t mean it’s harder to use than what’s already familiar. WAX makes the onboarding process simple with a seamless login process, sleek dashboard, and support for nearly 50 languages.
2) Feeless Transactions
Unlike other blockchain networks, transaction fees don’t exist on WAX. Those fees can get unwieldy in a hurry, forcing several projects to seek alternatives.
If network fees become problematic, gamers and publishers alike will naturally gravitate to other platforms.
3) Well-established User-base
Most of the selling and trading of NFTs occurs within secondary marketplaces. But launching a new marketplace is a costly, time-consuming endeavor. Not to mention marketing efforts that drive gamers to the NFTs in the first place.
By launching KOGs on WAX, RedFOX won’t have to start from scratch. Instead, we gain immediate exposure to nearly 500k user-created accounts on the WAX Blockchain.
Considering the world’s insatiable thirst for mobile gaming, and the rising importance of NFTs within the blockchain space, KOGS on WAX is launching to a receptive audience.
WAX is the safest and most convenient way to create, buy, sell, and trade virtual items – to anyone, anywhere in the world.
WAX has created a full suite of blockchain-based tools that allows anyone to trade digital or even physical items instantly and securely, to anyone, anywhere.
Participants of the Worldwide Asset eXchange gain access to a global community of collectors and traders, buyers and sellers, creators and gamers, merchants, dApp creators, and game developers.
