Crypto Colosseum is a layered game: easy to get started, difficult to master. Nothing blocks users signing up or playing. That includes everything from game design (just bet on a name you like) to the choice of blockchain.
That being said, we live by the blockchain ethos and never custody keys nor keep off chain data in proprietary databases. Crypto Colosseum runs entirely on decentralized technology.
Playing Crypto Colosseum is straightforward and works for both new non-crypto users and power users with Metamask. It’s imperative both sets of users find it easy to play the game. We ensure an intuitive experience so that players can focus on the gaming experience, rather than being bogged down by the complexities of blockchain. The battle is between digital gladiators, and not between you and your sanity.
Here’s how we do it.
- Built on Polygon (a fast ethereum side chain with lots of adoption)
- Off chain data is held on Sia Skynet (Decentralized storage)
- Sign up using existing socials or email (if you want) using Torus Labs.
- A Gnosis safe for every user is created at signup: players get started with a zero MATIC balance.
- Relay transactions using Biconomy to make the game intuitive & gasless
Here’s the signup flow:
- User uses Metamask or creates a wallet with Torus Labs
- Browser calls our serverless function and a Gnosis Safe is deployed under user control.
- Six free bets valued at .006 $PTG deposited in their newly created safe.
During play the user’s transactions are relayed through Biconomy and their new gnosis safe. At any time they can change the ownership of that safe to a different wallet.
Thanks to Biconomy, the users find it incredibly easy to get started, bet on tournaments and buy items. Moreover, this approach also maintains player custody over all their assets.
Here’s a video of it in action:
Crypto Colosseum is high in the rankings of usage on the Polygon network (in at least the top 10). Yet, transaction costs are so low we can easily afford to cover the gas for all the transactions and offer a gasless experience!
We find it really easy to sponsor these gas costs using Biconomy’s meta-transactions. Moreover, you can also easily track your gas sponsorship spendings on the dashboard.
(That is for over 4000 player transactions).
We have a proto library to make deploying a gnosis safe and relaying through Biconomy really easy: https://github.com/quorumcontrol/kasumah (however, it’s new and undocumented).
In the end, Crypto Colosseum provides a web2 experience using web3 tech with a variety of off the shelf tools combined with targeted custom library components. It is efficient, effective and powerful like a good finishing move in the arena.
