LONDON and GRAND CAYMAN, Cayman Islands, Feb. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Fishbank and WAX™ today announced that Fishbank's Crypto Collectible™ fish will be available on OPSkins, the world's leading marketplace for online video game assets, and are tradable with WAX Tokens, Bitcoin, US dollars, Euros and dozens of other currencies.
Fishbank is the new generation player-versus-player (PvP) game based on Ethereum smart contracts that allows collecting, growing and trading beautiful digital fish, each with its unique type, image, colors and characteristics. Players' fish can be used to battle other players' fish in order to become more powerful by gaining opponents' weight. Every fish is a Crypto Collectible ERC-721 crypto token — a digital asset 100% owned by the player. It cannot be destroyed, taken away or replaced against the player's will.
"Fishbank is now available in Alpha. Prior to the stable release, there will be a unique opportunity to pre-order certain crypto fish tokens at a discount starting at 0.05 ETH," said a representative from the Chatrobotic Team, which developed Fishbank. "After the pre-order period, players will only be able to obtain a fish by catching a random one, purchasing one from another player or through the OPSkins marketplace."
There will be a number of rare and powerful items available during the pre-order period, like the Legendary Shark and Crypto Whale. The latter has an initial price of up to 30 ETH and just a 1 in 1,000,000 chance of being caught once the game launches.
"Virtual collectible items based on blockchain technology add a fresh value proposition to the crypto world," said Malcolm CasSelle, CIO of OPSkins and President of WAX. "We see OPSkins and WAX as key players in developing our new Crypto Collectibles marketplace, which creates additional utility for WAX Tokens, and we're excited to integrate Fishbank into that ecosystem."
OPSkins will become the go-to marketplace to trade these Crypto Collectibles. Fishbank makes the third ERC-721 token to be added to OPSkins and tradable with WAX Tokens, joining CryptoKitties and Etherbots. OPSkins boasts over two million weekly transactions on its platform, has millions of active customers and adds 200,000 new users each month. WAX allows anyone to create a virtual goods marketplace, onboarding millions of gamers to the growing cryptocurrency space.
Fishbank is a blockchain-based game with a community-driven economy and immutable game balance running on open-sourced smart contracts. All game assets are stored in the Ethereum blockchain as ERC-721 tokens and can be easily traded, gifted or transferred as any other cryptocurrency.
