In this article, I explain all the details you need to know about Etheremon and EMONT tokens. I also tell about my own experience playing this game and why this is a promising use case for blockchain and the future of Game 3.0.Introduction to Etheremon, EMONT Tokens, and Current User Adoption
Etheremon is a game that, as the name suggests, runs on the Ethereum blockchain. Users can access the platform from both desktop and mobile devices. EMONT is the platform’s native ERC-20 token. It has a limited supply of 20 million.
There are two main ways in which users can generate value from playing Etheremon. First, the more a user trains a monster (referred to as a Mon), the more value it will be worth. It’s possible to trade, lend, transfer, and release Mons within Etheremon. Similar to blockchain-based games like CryptoKitties, there is a degree of scarcity for each type of available Mon.
Second, any users can easily mine EMONT tokens within a game. EMONT can be traded for Ether or used for buying Mons and other items on the platform. According to the project website, the plan is to make EMONT the ONLY in-game currency at some point in the future.Revive The Dead is a Halloween feature where users can catch previously-retired Mons and bring them back to life before the Hell Gate is closed.
As of October 18, 2018, some stats on the project include 8,067 players, 40,417 Etheremons, 415,315 battles, and 14,204 explorations. These numbers will continue to increase and up-to-date stats can be found on the Etheremon homepage. It will be cool to see how these numbers change over time with the growth of the game.
Current adoption of this game is quite good when compared to many other blockchain-based games and collectibles. In terms of numbers of users, this game consistently ranks as one of the top three dapp games.Sign Up Process
