Chinese billionaire and entrepreneur Justin Sun will soon have his butt kicked by thousands of gamers in the mobile game Knight Story. Game studio Biscuit Labs announced that the often criticized businessman will be the next boss in their game. Players will be able to virtually kill him for 14 days, and those who reach the highest levels will be rewarded in cryptocurrencies.
Biscuit Labs will launch the new boss fight next week. The reason why Justin Sun appears in Knight Story has not been explained. However, Knight Story recently introduced support for the Tron blockchain, alongside the Ethereum blockchain. Sun is the CEO of the Tron Foundation.
Knight Story is an idle role playing game for smartphones. The game is available for free in the App Store and the Google Play Store. On a monthly basis the game introduces a new boss to beat. Only the players with the best weapons and armor will be able to defeat a boss at its highest level.
Knight Story on Tron blockchain
The idle role playing game launched on the Tron blockchain in the beginning of April. Players are free to pick their favorite blockchain when they start the game. Based on their choice, players will get access to three heroes. However, nothing changes in terms of gameplay. It’s basically the same game, but connected to a different blockchain.
In Knight Story players need to make their knights stronger to defeat waves of enemies. Since this week the game also introduced a boss mechanic, in which players need to help each other to defeat a very strong enemy. Not all items are on the blockchain. Players can move items to the blockchain by buying and using a special token.
On a weekly basis there’s approximately 20 to 25 ETH worth of trading volume in Knight Story’s digital items. That means there’s at least 2500 dollars of trade, with an average price of 0.03 ETH per trade. Currently there are over five thousand users trading their digital items from Knight Story on the public marketplace.
Tron not hot on gaming yet
The Tron blockchain will add a whole bunch of new potential users to Knight Story. According to TronScan there are almost 5 million wallets, doing at least 1.2 million transactions per day. However, it remains to be seen how many people will jump into the blockchain game.
According to DappRadar the most popular decentralized apps on the Tron blockchain are gambling apps. These apps are responsible for the majority of trading volume and transactions. According to the data from DappRadar these app have a combined trading volume of over 2.5 million dollars per day.
Gamers spend the most on gaming dapps like CryptoTree and CatPromotion. Both these games barely provide any gameplay. Blockchain Cuties is the 24th most popular real gaming dapp in terms of trading volume. The word popular is relative, because the 193 users only created 44 dollars in volume.
