We’ve been asked the question ‘Why are you launching on Fantom’ quite a few times! So in this post, we want to explain why Fantom is ideal to us and why we believe the gaming space on Fantom will grow a lot.
When we officially made the decision to launch on Fantom in late December last year, we were one out of three Fantom-based games. Since then, we have seen more and more games realize the value of Fantom and the numbers are starting to increase now. Read on to know why this makes total sense!
Fantom is Fast 🚀
Out of all chains, Fantom has one of the fastest time to finality. A lot of chains have to wait for blocks to be created and confirmed by other blocks, which is why you often have to wait a long time for your deposit on an exchange to confirm. On Fantom, a transaction is finalized after its first confirmation, which means it can finalize transactions in 1–2 seconds!
Speed is important in crypto, and even more so in games. Games are generally fast-paced, so if players have to wait minutes for a transaction to be confirmed they are very likely to lose interest. Luckily we won’t have this issue thanks to Fantom.
Fantom is Cheap ✅
Stumble upon Rumble is for everyone. Our gameplay is skill-based without pay-to-win elements and is free-to-play. Furthermore, the game is optimized to be able to run on older computers and smartphones. All of this makes it possible for Stumble upon Rumble to attract a massive player base even in areas that are less wealthy.
This is why it is absolutely crucial that the gas fees are affordable for everyone. If not, our whole game design that is focused on inclusivity would fall apart. Because Fantom gas fees are only a couple of cents, it fits our mission very well.
Fantom is Green ♻️
Sure the logo and branding may be blue, but Fantom is actually one of the greenest chains in crypto. An average transaction on Fantom costs less energy than a VISA transaction as can be seen in the graph below.
This is another very important point, as the environmental impact has been one of the loudest objections by the traditional gaming community. By taking this objection away, we hope to be able to onboard an even larger number of players that is now willing to give crypto gaming a chance. Again, we are a game for everyone!
We also had some reasons that are less about the Fantom tech in general and more about the specific fit that we have with Fantom👇🏼
Fantom is supportive
We are trying to be a hub where communities and fan bases of all sorts of projects, NFT collections, influencers and celebrities can come together. Fantom is one of the most supportive ecosystems we’ve seen. All the projects know each other and try to support each other in some way. That is why it was a perfect fit to us, and it shows as we have partnered with almost all of the major players in the ecosystem.
There is a great opportunity
A chain that is great for gaming but which does not have a lot of games yet… sounds like an opportunity to us. By being among the first-movers here we can cement our position as the ecosystem continues to grow. In a couple of months or even years, more and more projects will come to the chain and regard us as one of the OGs in gaming. 🥊
It also makes us even more appealing to the existing community as the Fantom community hasn’t been saturated with exposure to gaming projects yet.
In summary, Fantom is fast, cheap, and scalable and has a supportive community that is eager to try some games on their chain. We are super glad to be a part of this ecosystem and to play a role in its adoption! 💪🏼
