It has begun to seem as if since the craze of ‘cryptokitties’ virtual game, game creators have gone to their drawing boards to create games related to blockchain activity. Lucid Sight, a Blockchain games developer is teaming up with media firm CBS Interactive to bring “Star Trek” gameplay and collectibles to the blockchain. Star Trek is a popular TV and film franchise borne from a movie.
As announced on Tuesday by Lucid Sight the deal has been signed with CBS in a bid to introduce the iconic starships from star trek, into a digital universe through its space-based game CSC later this year. For a limited time, players of CSC will be able to buy the starships, including the U.S.S. Enterprise, which will be sold as unique digital collectibles.
They will use the ethereum blockchain to secure tokens on and uniquely numbered based on the order of creation for all of the spaceships sold in CSC. The collectible items will be playable in the CSC game universe and can be fully tradable in-game or outside of CSC in third-party marketplaces such as Open Sea. This will be enabled by using the ERC-721 standard – which allows the creation of unique or non-fungible tokens.
Lucid Sight CTO and co-founder Fazri Zubair in their statement said: “‘Star Trek’ inspired me at a young age to pursue a career in technology; it is such a privilege to get the chance to bring ‘Star Trek’ into a new frontier with the first blockchain U.S.S. Enterprise,”
CSC is an open-universe game where players command starships to mine, harvest and craft items on ethereum, allowing CSC to provide “provable, transferable, transparent and delegated control” of its in-game assets, Lucid Sight said.
A legendary actor, William Shatner from “Star Trek” had announced last month his partnership with a legal-tech firm called Mattereum headed by former ethereum launch coordinator, Vinay Gupta. Their partnership is to highlight its Asset Passport technology, which uses “legally-binding” smart contracts to record the authenticity of real-world collectible items. This is indeed corroboration to the added feature of this new game based on Star Trek. In addition, he said indicated its collaboration with the startup to “establish an authentication system” that provides data on Location, ownership, and genuineness.
