What are NFTs?
NFT is an abbreviation for “Non-Fungible Token”, a digital token that cannot be replaced and has a unique value. The technology is widely used in games, music, art works, and various certificates.
The development team of “Gods Unchained” recently announced a new development roadmap for 2023. Its goal is to establish itself as the leading mainstream TCG for Web3 users, blockchain enthusiasts and core TCG/strategy gamers.
There are also plans to introduce a popular TCG game mode, Seald, where players will be able to enjoy the experience of fighting with randomly distributed cards. In addition, we will implement a new content creator program to revitalize community activities. The program allows players to create video highlights of their gaming experience and earn token rewards through sharing.
According to Paez, Gods Unchained is one of the few blockchain games run by a large, well-funded company. Immutable Games, which works on “Gods Unchained”, is a subsidiary of Immutable, which develops Immutable X, a layer 2 scaling solution specialized for NFTs. Immutable closed a $200 million Series C round last year, valuing it at $2.5 billion.
Looking ahead, Paez reveals that he is designing governance and economic change for Gods Unchained. “We are currently at an important turning point in ‘Gods Unchained’, and the next six months will be the most exciting time in our history,” he told the overseas cryptocurrency media The Block. said.

What is layer 2
A “second layer” blockchain. Writing all transaction histories to the main chain increases the load, slowing down processing speeds and increasing network fees. Therefore, by writing part of the transaction history in the off-chain or side-chain, it is possible to reduce the load on the main chain and improve the processing speed.
