Neon District Founders Key

Neon District, one of the most hotly anticipated blockchain gaming platforms built on Ethereum and Loom network, has an ongoing registration for ‘Founder Key’. You can sign up for free here, only for the next 2 days. By signing up, you not only show an interest in Neon District, but will also get some really cool exclusive in-game assets. In addition, Founder Key holders will get exclusive early access and access to Founders Sale as well.

Neon District is created by the famous Marguerite deCourcelle, aka Coin Artist (coin_artist) who is well known in the broader blockchain and crypto community for her intriguing puzzles that can be solved to unlock Bitcoin or crypto.

Neon District is already valued at $13 million, with investments from the likes of investors like Ari Paul, who have raised hundreds of millions of dollars during the peak crypto boom of 2017.

Blockchain Gaming

Blockchain gaming is becoming increasingly complex and competitive, and serious game builders and developers are finding a home in this space. Blockchain native games with minimal gameplay like CryptoKitties have shown a proof of concept of what is possible. Games like Neon District are taking it to the next step.

There are of course several advantages of putting in-game assets on the blockchain. Interoperability with third-party applications, for example, is a huge one. Another is the aspect of ownership – even Neon District cannot arbitrarily stop you from trading your asset or selling it, so it represents property ownership rights as closely as possible, similar to the ‘real world’.

There are of course challenges like scalability. Neon District is using a Plasma Chain to build its app and make transactions, using the Loom Network. Loom has become the chain of choice for these types of games as it provides developer tools and onboarding for new games.

Get your Founder Key – for Free!

With this background in mind, all gamers and blockchain enthusiasts should sign up for Neon District’s Founder Key, over the next 2 days. It is free currently, and you’ll get some cool in-game assets to boast or sell. After all, it’s yours on the blockchain, and you can always sell it to buyers and game enthusiasts down the road!
