Roach Racing launching on Polygon
P2E platform chosen Polygon to provide the best blockchain gaming experience
Roach Racing Club (therefore RRC) is a сommunity-owned dynamic game universe with a unique evolutionary breeding model. The game offers the player to plunge into the dynamic universe of roach races powered by Chainlink oracles. You can breed your champions, enter your favorite roaches into races, see them compete, earn $ETH and $MTGN to become a racing superstar. Roaches are customizable with unique gear to make them exclusive. Develop your strategy to win races and hit the jackpot.
Unique game mechanics
At RRC we are exploring innovations in order to evoke new forms of game experience. One of our goals is to use blockchain ecosystem compatibility and we are building a dynamic universe driven by data. We respect the chance and believe it’s crucial to maintain engagement. We want to affect the chances by certain data feeds provided by Chainlink oracles, such as weather conditions, asset price fluctuations, and network conditions. On the one hand, these conditions are considered unpredictable, but on the other, we’ve got weather and price forecasts which come true. We believe this kind of ambivalence adds additional layers to the gaming experience.
Let’s dive a bit deeper and consider a specific example. Each roach has a unique genotype and some of the genes are connected with weather conditions. It means that certain roaches perform better than others during sunny days. Some of them are hardy during rainy days. Considering these conditions race participants are making tactical decisions by selecting a particular type of roach for the upcoming race. Possibilities are endless and we don’t want to spoil the pleasure of exploring our dynamic universe.
Our core game mechanics, such as breeding, race matching, and rewards distribution will be fully on-chain. Given the complexity and the need for constant contracts interaction, we need to ensure an instant and efficient full stack scaling solution.
But why Polygon?
There are dozens of Layer 2 solutions on the market today, but we have some very good reasons for our choice:
Polygon is the leading platform for Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development. It allows us to easily integrate Roach Racing Club with other DeFi solutions such as ChainLink, AAVE, SushiSwap, 1inch, and many others. Moreover, the largest NFT-marketplace – OpenSea, is also supporting the Polygon chain. It’s crucial for maintaining sustainable liquidity and price discovery.
Scalability and performance
Polygon ensures instant and deterministic transactions with low expenses that are crucial to our game mechanics and the overall successful and sustainable growth of the project.
Developer friendly ecosystem
Polygon offers an extremely flexible bridge and new powerful developer tools are released regularly. Therefore, working with Polygon provides us with the best and the most flexible tools to further improve our project.
Polygon is a mature, well-tested, and proven solution that has all of its “teething problems” already ironed out. The network has seen increasing adoption with the number of active addresses on the network seeing some exponential growth.
Polygon is the leading platform for Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development. Its growing suite of products offers developers easy access to all major scaling and infrastructure solutions: L2 solutions (ZK Rollups and Optimistic Rollups), sidechains, hybrid solutions, stand-alone and enterprise chains, data availability solutions, and more. Polygon’s scaling solutions have seen widespread adoption with 3000+ applications hosted, ~600M total transactions processed, ~60M unique user addresses, and $5B+ in assets secured.
