Etheremon’s Co-Founder Jarvis Nguyen

Blockchain-based games have become a hot commodity in the cryptocurrency space. Ethereum-based CryptoKitties was the first game to take off on the market and since its inception, more and more games are being released. Etheremon is the latest game to be launched on the Ethereum blockchain. The idea of gaming on the blockchain is very new. The traditional game is controlled by a company and the game behavior can be changed easily by them. As a decentralized application, no one controls this game, and no one can take away your assets or cheat you in this world. It is immune to any outside influence as it’s guaranteed to execute only what the smart contracts were programmed to do. Moreover, because Ethereum runs on thousands of machines simultaneously, the services are provided with a 100% uptime guarantee. In Etheremon, all players share the same world. For example, there are only 195 Pangrass, so the maximum number of players that can have Pangrass at any particular time is 195. Users can also play with others via battle modes. It is similar to any online games, but there is no centralized server, all actions are done via Ethereum network. From those attributes, players can earn money from playing. Players can sell, lend their Etheremon to others, and as the resources are limited and transparent, there is a need for collecting them. It is similar to Bitcoin, there is a limit cap and no one controls it.

‘Worthless’: Research Firm Levels Kodak ICO With Withering Indictment

At CCN we have been following the Kodak story – a once monolithic print photography company that has struggled to adapt to the digital world. The announcement that the brand was turning to blockchain with KODAKCoin, which aims to protect photographers’ digital rights utilizing immutable distributed ledger technology, swept through the crypto space. Despite the ICO’s early wobbles,
when the coin finally launched it tripled from its ICO price, leaving initial investors pleased and observers optimistic regarding the company’s transformed future. However, investment research firm Kerrisdale Capital this week has released a crippling 22-page indictment on the project. Referring to the company as a “dying relic of American manufacturing”, (KODAK went bankrupt in 2013),
Kerrisdale sees the $300m ICO as a cash grab that “will never deliver promised benefits”.
