Gachapon has been delayed until January 2021. The game is finished and ready to go, but we ran into an obstacle with some of the NFT prizes.
The idea of Gachapon is that you win something on every play. It could be a high profile NFT, a game ecosystem NFT from Lepricon (announcement coming soon), or a container NFT that you can redeem for a cash prize.
The problem was with the container NFTs. The way we were going to do it turned out to have a challenge in its operation that made it unreliable. We discovered this late during extensive testing.
We have solved the problem now and have developed an entirely new NFT smart contract that can contain token assets and then be redeemed, but we need some time to battle test it and complete the claim page where holders break these NFTs to reveal the assets contained within.
In the meantime, while you wait for the game, here is a trailer for the game featuring actual gameplay.
Lepricon is reimagining the possibilities for entertainment through blockchain technology and seeking to establish the general acceptance of player-owned economies in games. We believe that gaming can and should be the first killer-on ramp to mainstream adoption, and Lepricon’s stated mission is to catalyse this outcome.
Our activities break into three distinct tracks; technology, entertainment and DeFi.
At the core of this strategy is Lepricon’s own high-speed, gas-less Ethereum-compatible side chain, Leprichain. We are developing software solutions in the form of SDKs, which will empower mainstream game development studios to incorporate blockchain technology into their games. These solutions are built upon and powered by Leprichain, with the intent to create a drag and drop blockchain solution for mainstream game developers.
Lepricon is developing several in-house entertainment activities that operate on Leprichain, including our collection of arcade and carnival games at Lepricon City. The first games are straightforward, but we will develop more complex games that demonstrate Leprichain’s capabilities over time. We will leverage these demonstration games to encourage third party dApp developers to deploy on Leprichain.
Leprichain and all of the dApps that run on it are powered by our ERC-20 / BEP-20 utility token, L3P. Lepricon’s DeFi portal will enable L3P holders to manage their tokens, participate in governance, and benefit from advanced yield-earning activities. Lepricon’s DeFi portal will launch towards the end of the fourth quarter of 2021.
