Crypto Academy / Season 3 / Week 4 - Homework Post for @yohan2on | Blockchain Video Games - Play and Earn Crypto
<center><h4>Introduction</h4></center>

<div class = "text-justify">It's a great honour to be attending the academy again at this moment of the day to learn more about cryptocurrency from our seasoned professors. And this time, I've attended the lecture of professor @yohan2on where we were taught about <b>Blockchain Video Games</b>, it was really an interesting lecture to attend. I will be using this article to solve the task given by the professor.</div>

<center><h4><div class = "text-justify">Background to Blockchain Video Games</div></h4></center>


<div class = "text-justify">The blockchain technology has enabled gamers to earn while having fun, the incentivization is made possible by what is known as <b>Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs)</b> whereby digital assets are tokenized on the blockchain to have their unique identity to the owner of the asset. An example of this is found in <b>adventure games</b> where users can buy a land in the game and can resell later as it has become their unique asset, another example is seen in <b>Kitty's</b> game which the platform known as Cryptokitties offers, where users can buy kitties, modify it and resell to make money on the blockchain later. There are other numerous examples of these NFTs in the gaming world, let's keep it at this.</div>
<br>

 
<center><h4><div class = "text-justify">REVIEW- What is Blockchain Cuties Universe?</div></h4></center>

<div class = "text-justify">Blockchain Cuties Universe is a gaming platform on the blockchain that offer users the opportunity to play different animal games and these animals are <b>collectibles</b> that are tokenized on the blockchain. Blockchain Cuties Universe is supports 5 different blockchains namely; <b>ETH, MATIC, EOS, TRON and NEO</b>, this is quite an advantage of this crypto gaming platform supporting many blockchains.</div>
<br>

<div class = "text-justify">A few examples of  animals available on this crypto gaming platform are; cats, puppies, lizard, bear cubs and other numerous animals (collectibles). These animals represent NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) tokenized on the blockchain such that each of them have their unique identity to the owner (game player) and it can be monetized later, and by that, a gamer earns from their gaming activities on the platform. </div>


<center><h5><div class = "text-justify">The Native Token of Blockchain Cuties Universe</div></h5></center>


<div class = "text-justify">The native of the Blockchain Cuties universe is known to be <b>BCUG (Blockchain Cuties Universe Governance)</b> which is trading at the price of 1.58 USD as at the time of writing this article and sitting on the number 1327 ranking by market capitalization with 1,860,758 USD. BCUG tokens can be used to purchase assets on the platform to later monetize these assets being one's unique asset and also used to participate in governance of the platform. BCUG token is trading on a few of CEXs and DEXs, some which are Gate.io (CEX), Uniswap (DEX), Bilaxy (CEX), ZT (CEX) and so on.</div>

<center><h4><div class = "text-justify">Merits & Demerits of Blockchain Cutie Universe</div></h4></center>

<div class = "text-justify">With the time I spent to engage with the Blockchain Cuties Universe gaming platform, I have seen a lot of merits and at the same time demerits, and they would be listed in this section.</div>

<h5>Merits</h5>

<div class = "text-justify"><li>The first I noticed is that it supports more than one blockchain and in this case it supports 5 including blockchains that comes with less transaction fee, for example, Tron blockchain. It is better as compared to Cryptokitties that supports only Ethereum blockchain.</li></div>
<br>
<div class = "text-justify"><li>Ease of navigation through the features is another merit. For example, I made a purchase of a cutie in a few minutes with low transaction fee. </li></div>
<br>

<div class = "text-justify"><li>A large availability of numerous cuties in the marketplace from which users can select any of choice (even gamers with low budget gets something from the marketplace.</li></div>
<br>
<div class = "text-justify"><li>Earning options through staking of BCUG (native token) which allow users to earn more. It is more than a game that rewards, it also serve the purpose of investment.</li></div>
<br>
<div class = "text-justify"><li>Gamer's stake can qualify them to participate in the governance of the platform according to the stake of their BCUG asset. </li></div>

<h5>Demerits</h5>

<div class = "text-justify"><li>The adventure period is very short and the adventure characteristics of a quality game is lacking.</li></div>
<br>
<div class = "text-justify"><li>Gamers intelligence does not go beyond building their cuties, the game should allow gamers to participate while playing against other cuties, that'd be an added merit.</li></div>
<br>
<div class = "text-justify"><li>Low adoption at the moment as weighed to the numbers of users in the crypto ecosystem.</li></div>
<br>

<div class = "text-justify"><li>Struggling with physical appearance of cuties at the moment. It can be improved.</li></div>

<center>![Fred Br.png](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmdnx1ZdtYDsQGpQroBf3AR9f3mKro3wN1Kj1Ph6X8eanG/Fred%20Br.png)</center>

<h4>Ratings on a scale of 5</h4>

<div class = "text-justify">I am giving a rating of <b>3.5/5</b> to this gaming platform for the moment. <b>1.5</b> for their support for up to 5 blockchains, <b>0.5</b> for the ease of use while the remaining <b>1.5</b> goes to the passive earning opportunity/participation in governance.</div>
<br>

<div class = "text-justify">The lacking <b>1.5</b> rating is carried over to the future as I'd like to see an improved gaming environment for gamers to be more involved and an improved appearance of the cuties.</div>

<center>![Fred Br.png](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmdnx1ZdtYDsQGpQroBf3AR9f3mKro3wN1Kj1Ph6X8eanG/Fred%20Br.png)</center>

<h4>Conclusion</h4>

<div class = "text-justify">Blockchain has shaped the gaming sector to allow gamers earn from their activities and not play just for fun like we used to see before. Blockchain Cuties Universe is one of the crypto video gaming platforms that supports several blockchains and thereby allows wide participation of gamers in the crypto ecosystem. Thanks to professor @yohan2on for this great lecture.</div>
