Top 4 Gaming Projects On Solana

Many blockchains try to build momentum in the play-to-earn gaming vertical. Thanks to its high throughput and low fees, Solana makes for an excellent candidate. Several popular games have already been built on this network and have successfully grown their communities.

DeFi Land

DeFi Land has become one of the most popular Solana-based blockchain games. Players can choose various gameplay types, enabling a more immersive gaming experience on the Solana blockchain. Moreover, the agriculture-oriented gameplay – involving fishing, shooting, farming, crafting, etc. – is an appealing and approachable concept. It lowers the entry barriers and has the potential to bring more people into play-to-earn gaming.

It was the first Solana gamification project to launch, and the team delivered on the initial roadmap within nine months. Despite Solana’s multiple network outages, DeFiand has not had any downtime, thwarting nearly a dozen DDoS attacks. Moreover, the game has integrated with Raydium, Serum, Oracle, Tulip, Jupiter, and other projects to focus on interoperability and composability.

DeFi Land distinguishes itself through eight kinds of NFTs with unique gameplay attached to each type. Additionally, there is a native NFT marketplace, staking support, Seed Planting for NFT incentivization, in-game currencies, and secured the first-ever Radio tower in the metaverse. Delivering such an array of products and services makes DeFi Land stand out from the rest. Furthermore, the team is looking to add PvP, co-op, and a mobile application.

MonkeyLeague

Competitive gameplay continues to bring more people to the P2E industry vertical. MonkeyLeague is a prominent Solana-based title as it combines Web3 elements with eSports gaming. Players can build their dream team of soccer players, compete against others, and reap the rewards by rising the ranks. However, there is also some strategy involved, as players need to think about how they approach matches and handle their squad.

What sets MonkeyLeague apart from the rest is its high-production-value multiplayer gaming. It creates an exciting turn-based play-and-earn soccer game combined with decentralized finance elements. Anyone can pick up MonkeyLeague, but mastering the game is something different. Additionally, players own the game’s assets, including Stadiums, where games are played. Owning a Stadium can lead to generating passive revenue in MonkeyLeague.

In addition to hosting matches in a Stadium, players can earn through winning matches and rooting for the winning team as a spectator. MonkeyLeague is developed by UnCaged Studios, which recently secured $24 million in Series A funding. That money will advance the development of MonkeyLeague and the Game OS platform, designed to help Wb2/Web3 development houses enter the crypto space.

Neopets Meta

Free-to-play games with play-to-earn elements tend to attract tremendous interest. Such games need the inherent benefits of the Solana blockchain, including speed, efficiency, and low fees. Neopets Meta is currently the top-ranked Solana-based play-to-earn title where players engage in a virtual pet game. In addition, participants can explore various mini-games, PvE and PvP combat, and the care and customization system.

Neopets Meta is built on the cult classic Neopets, which had over 150 million players. Bringing that familiar look and feel to the metaverse and combining it with P2E elements will bring modernized nostalgia to that former player base. For those new to Neopets, there is much to like, as there are no upfront investment costs to engage in this virtual pet metaverse. The option to collect resources and craft a house to furnish, decorate, and expand for one’s Neopet is rather appealing.

SolChicks

Another popular play-to-earn game on the Solana blockchain is SolChicks. The project launched with tremendous ambition, as the team aimed to build the leading fantasy NFT PvP and P2E gaming ecosystem. With its cute characters and high-production-value gameplay, SolChicks has certainly delivered on most promises. The initial excitement surrounding the project became apparent as SolChick sold out its two NFT mint sales relatively quickly.

Gameplay-wise, there is a fair bit of lore, a gripping storyline, and engaging combat mechanics. Additionally, players will face PvP and PvE content, offering a good mix of changing conditions. Players can also collect the SolChicks they like and use them to tackle different in-game content types. Players who want to check out a game demo can do so here. It is good to see a demo of a blockchain game, something more teams will hopefully introduce over time.

Battle Against Cyber Threats To Be Addressed By Cyber Security Visionaries At #Wcssjordan

The 17th global edition of World Cyber Security Summit is gearing up with the goal of constructing a security framework for organisations in Jordan. The summit is taking place on 15 – 16 August 2022 in Jordan, and features notable speakers including Mohammad Alkhudari, Ira Winkler, Abdulrahman Alnimari, Prof.MohandTaharKechadi, George Eapen and many more.

The 17th global edition of World Cyber Security Summit will be held under the auspices of H.E. Dr Bisher AlKhasawneh, Prime Minister of the Hashemite RKingdom of Jordan, and supported by the Ministry of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship, Jordan.The summit is taking place on 15 – 16 August 2022 at The Ritz-Carlton in Amman, Jordan. World Cyber Security Summit is part of a global series and is brought to Jordan by Trescon, a global business events and consulting firm that specialises in hosting future-tech events across the world.

As the country braces for a protracted cyber insecurity, government and organisations are looking for an action plan to mitigate the risks and become resilient to cyber threats. Thus resulting in the announcements of a raft of policies to manage digital vulnerabilities in the recent years. In order for effective implementation of these policies,World Cyber Security Summit will play its part by providing a platform to conduct thorough debates, and deliberations on the proposed cyber security strategies.

The summit will host more than 300+ C level attendees, including government officials, Chief Information Security Officers, Chief Information Officers, CEOs and technology leaders from enterprises and government agencies in Jordan to meet, network, and engage with global cyber security experts and technology innovators over the course of two days.

“The importance of cyber security is being increased and it is not an option for companies and organizations, and having the advanced defence in place is required for critical infrastructure and data. Sensitive data and information protection is the source of trust in organizations,”said H.E. BelalHafnawi, Commissioner – Board Member at Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC-Jordan).

Abdulrahman Al-Nimari, VP – Cybersecurity from Saudi Arabiastated,“Remember: compliance to regulations does not mean you are secure, you must have your own risk driven cyber security program and strategy that mitigate your own unique risks.”

HaidarFraihat, Cluster Leader – Statistics, Information Society, and Technology at United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) says, “Corporations can easily fall into the false sense of security syndrome. Illusioned that their precious data is safe, they may tend to drop guard and invest less in enhancing their data security. Realizing that data and information is the strategic asset to organizations, perhaps more than financial resources, is of paramount importance to keep your competitive edge, security and even survivability. Feeling secure doesn’t mean you are really secure.”

Some of the leading industry experts speaking at the summit include:

  • Scott E. Augenbaum– Retired FBI Supervisory Special Agent; Author; Cybercrime Prevention Trainer, Scott Augenbaum LLC

Ethereum Climbs To $1,900, Why $2K Could Be Next

Avatar Of Rajesh Khanna

Published

Ethereum

Ethereum started a major increase above $1,800 against the US Dollar. ETH is rising and might continue to rise towards the $2,000 resistance zone.

  • Ethereum found support near $1,680 and started a fresh increase.
  • The price is now trading above $1,800 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
  • There was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance near $1,740 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair could continue to rise further higher towards the $1,950 and $2,000 levels.

Ethereum Price Rallies 12%

Ethereum remained well bid above the $1,650 level. ETH formed a base and started a fresh increase above the $1,750 resistance zone. The bulls pumped the price above the $1,800 level.

The price climbed higher and even broke the $1,850 resistance. Finally, there was a move above the $1,900 and the price settled above the 100 hourly simple moving average. A high was formed near $1,919 and the price is now consolidating gains.

It is now trading well above $1,800 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Ether price is also well above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $1,655 low to $1,919 high.

Source: ETHUSD on TradingView.com

An immediate resistance on the upside is near the $1,920 level. The first major resistance is near the $1,950 level. A clear move above the $1,950 level could start a steady increase to $2,000. If the bulls remain in action, the price may perhaps rise towards the $2,120 resistance zone in the near term.

Dips Supported in ETH?

If ethereum fails to rise above the $1,920 resistance, it could start a downside correction. An initial support on the downside is near the $1,850 zone. The next major support is near $1,800.

The main support is near the $1,780 level or the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $1,655 low to $1,919 high, below which there is a risk of a sharp decline. In the stated case, ether price may perhaps decline towards the $1,750 support. Any more losses might call for a test of the $1,700 level.

Technical Indicators

Hourly MACDThe MACD for ETH/USD is now losing momentum in the bullish zone.

Hourly RSIThe RSI for ETH/USD is now above the 65 level.

Major Support Level – $1,780

Major Resistance Level – $1,920
