SEOUL, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RisingWings, a subsidiary of KRAFTON, Inc. (KRX: 259960), announced its plans to enter the global blockchain game market with COMPETZ. COMPETZ is a blockchain-based esports service where players can compete and earn rewards based on their skills and experiences.
Leveraging its expertise in developing premier mobile game experiences (Archery King, Bowling King, Mini Golf King, and Golf King: World Tour), RisingWings will develop several new games for the service that will be released within this year. Players will soon be able to compete against other players in easy-to-learn but hard-to-master games, including Solitaire, Bingo, Pool, Mini Golf and Hunting. The winners of these head-to-head matches will win their allocated prize pool (in-game currency), which can be exchanged for cryptocurrency.
COMPETZ will be integrated into BORA, a blockchain platform that focuses on distributing digital entertainment content. The BORA platform will be used by players to acquire the in-game currency needed to play games in COMPETZ as well as exchange that in-game currency for BORA token cryptocurrency.
Additionally, in April, 1,000 COMPETZ profile picture (PFP) NFTs will be minted on the BORA platform. Users who purchase COMPETZ PFP NFTs will receive additional benefits, the details of which will be announced at a later date.
“COMPETZ is developed based on RisingWings’ experience and technology gained through successfully launching many casual sports games in the global market,” said Moon-chul Kang, the vice president of RisingWings. “It will become a service for everyone by providing a fair competition environment where anyone can compete under the same conditions. Based on the partnership with BORA, COMPETZ will maintain a healthy economy ecosystem, with plans to expand options for users through adding and expanding to different blockchain platforms going forward.”
