Convergence 4D Announces Partnerships with Crypt-Oink: Racing Friends and Ether Legends to Bring Crypto-Collectibles to Family Entertainment Centers

WHAT: Convergence 4D is pleased to announce their partnerships with Crypt-Oink: Racing Friends and Ether Legends connecting crypto-collectibles to Family Entertainment Centers (FECs) through a tokenized prizing platform called the “Prize neXus”. The partnerships aim to bridge the gap of games with blockchain technology by allowing developers’ digital game assets to be won as prizes in theme parks, arcades, and other location-based entertainment.

Prize winners will be able to choose from Crypt-Oink’s 3D Collectible Racing Pigs,”Crypton”, or Ether Legends’ character trading cards. In addition, a variety of crypto-collectibles from other games empowered by non-fungible tokens will be available such as upgrades, video game skins, special weapons, armor, and special characters. Afterwards, prize winners will be able to buy, sell and trade their crypto-collectibles using DROID tokens on a peer-to-peer marketplace web portal and via mobile app. The Prize neXus is part of the Silica neXus project and is powered by a proprietary technology solution that connects players to entertainment partners called the “Player-Acquisition-Engine”.

Ether Legends Partners With the Silica neXus Project

Convergence is pleased to announce our first game partner of 2019: Ether Legends. A collectible card game with both a physical and digital component, their digital items will appear in our Prize neXus.

“What excites me the most about the Ether Legends and Silica Nexus partnership is the opportunity to help bridge the gap of the intricacies of Blockchain and gaming through seamless interoperability,” says Co-founder of Elementeum Games Curran Mulvihill.

“The fact that physical kiosks will be introduced to the market in a user friendly format, means one step closer to mainstream and wide-spread usage. I believe the Nexus and featured gaming assets (like Ether Legends TCG) will further the understanding of player benefits using Blockchain tech, while enabling crypto-gaming companies a way to acquire new players. Through an easy to use interface, players will have a more clear understanding of the true value in ownership of digital assets, giving the power back to the player!”

Welcome to the neXus, Ether Legends! You can read more about Ether Legends and check out additional assets here.

Run for the Unicorns 2019

While we may have been quiet over the last month since CES, we have been super busy behind the scenes here at Convergence. Look our for a few updates dropping in the next month or so about the PAE. But, today, we want to talk about our conference, the annual Run for the Unicorns, as it is coming up fast.

2019 is an exciting growth year for us as we have added a preconference hackathon and Shark Tank open casting call to kick off our week of fun during the KY Derby Festival. Some other exciting news:

  • Through our partnership with the University of Louisville, all events will be hosted on their campus.
  • We have secured some great speakers such as Rick Tumlinson, Jon Nejarian, and Jennifer Greyson. You can check out our other speakers and apply to speak here.
  • The same great activities from last year’s event will be available a la carte or as part of VIP ticketing. Check out the schedule of events here.

We cannot have a great event without a bunch of great people around, so check out tickets here and come out to one of the best networking events of the year!

Convergence on the Road, Part 2: Return from CES

Phew! CES 2019 was a whirlwind of insanity but we made it out alive. While we did spend some time looking at some amazing tech, we got so much more from the show.

Oh, yeah: we were able to show off alpha product of our Player Acquisition Engine! It was wonderful to share a working Prize nexus, neXus Trade Binder, and neXus Marketplace with a few important folks.

But aside from that great milestone, what else did we do?

  • We have started the ball rolling on numerous new partnerships. We already have a few under our belt, we will be ready to announce them soon!
  • Walked/rode all over the strip. Seriously: this show was huge!
  • Run for the Unicorns is coming up at the end of April and we spoke to numerous companies and individuals who want to come out. We are looking forward to a great convention and expo.
  • Didn’t get one good night’s sleep. Did I mention CES is a whirlwind?

As we build more partnerships, look for our Droid Token out there in the world. Remember, both Run for the Unicorns tickets and our own Crowdfunding items can be purchased with Droids. Additionally, many partners will also allow you to buy items from them for Droids as well!

More announcements to come, have a great rest of your January!

Silica neXus 2018 Wrap Up

Phew, 2018 has been crazy! We here at Convergence are exhausted from a late year push to get all of our online properties up to date and polished. If you haven’t noticed already, both this page and our Run for the Unicorns site have had a lot of updates, with our Facebook and Convergence of 4 Dimensions sites not far behind.

The push behind this work has been the Redemption Robot coming into focus. Now called the Redemption neXus, this lead in project gets our Droid Tokens out into the world, along with thousands of NFTs, users, and more. We couldn’t be more excited to begin testing first quarter 2019.

Stay tuned here, on our Telegram, or our Facebook pages to stay in the know. We have a lot of travel to do as we bring this project live into the world and we will keep the information flowing continuously from here on out. We also have some super exciting announcements just around the corner, more to come soon!

Convergence on the Road, Part 1

Convergence attended the Washington Elite AI & Blockchain Summit December 1st & 2nd in Washington, DC and had a great time. CEO Andy Prell gave two amazing talks, seen below.  We feel we left the summit with some great opportunities to take advantage of in January as we continue our funding drive.

Thanks to Bruce Porter, Jr. and the rest of the WE team  for being amazing hosts, we look forward to the next summit in February.
