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”.
