Polygon has been one of the fastest-growing Dapp platforms for Ethereum scaling, rapidly becoming the de-facto standard for DeFi, NFTs, and Blockchain Gaming with 500+ Dapps, ~7M daily txns, and 1.8M+ unique wallets.
The rise of gaming on Polygon has been especially noticeable, with more than 100,000 blockchain gamers on Polygon and top Web 3 games, and Aavegotchi is one of them, building high-quality gaming experiences thanks to Polygon’s high speed and fast confirmation times.
This tight-knit and exponentially growing gamer community is what led to the creation of Polygon Studios: a brand new arm at Polygon that is focused on growing the global Blockchain Gaming and NFT Industry, and bridging the gap between Web 2 and Web 3 gaming.
Introducing Polygon August Adrenaline: an initiative to highlight and get to know the Gaming & NFT projects on Polygon a little better!
The next project in this series is Reality Cards!
Please tell us more about your project and your team.
Reality Cards is the world’s first and only NFT based prediction market.
Each outcome is a unique Non-Fungible Token (NFT), and instead of betting on an outcome, you own it (or to be more accurate, you rent it). Concepts such as shares, bids, asks do not exist- even ‘odds’ are abstracted away, replaced by a ‘daily rental price’. At the end of the event, the longest owner of each outcome keeps it forever (regardless of whether or not the outcome was correct), it thus becomes a collectable.
Where are you in the hype cycle for gaming and NFT’s?
Reality Cards is at 1% hype at the moment when it comes to the gaming & NFTs cycle and working towards increasing this percentage.
Who are some thought leaders you follow in the space?
Alex Masmej & Andrew Steinwold are a few of the thought leaders whom we actively follow.
What are some best ways for newbies to get up to speed in space?
Join a hackathon to get up to speed in this space.
What is one thing that most people don’t know about your project?
A lesser-known fact is that Reality Cards is the world’s first ‘outcome ownership’ market.
