You Create & Control

Until now blockchain games have been built on top of chains that are slow, expensive, and ecologically disastrous. Those legacy chains and their static NFTs add unnecessary friction and anxiety to the already challenging development process.

In the most literal way, Phantasma is a game-changer. Building within Phantasma’s Layer 1 Smart NFT ecosystem allows you to build a game that runs like a game, with all of the added benefits a blockchain can bring without any of the steep costs and inconveniences to you or your users.

Smart NFTs for Gaming

Unleash your in-game assets with Smart NFTs. Phantasma’s Smart NFTs are fully programmable and allow for player owned assets that can evolve, upgrade, and change in any way you can imagine.

Eco-Friendly

Phantasma is a Certified Carbon Negative proof-of-stake blockchain. Through our partnership with Save Planet Earth we have offset our already low carbon footprint.

Layer 1 Blockchain

Building on Phantasma allows you to create the game you want to create with a viable economy and the added benefit of leveraging a layer 1 blockchain.  Phantasma doesn’t need ZK roll ups or Layer 2 solutions to lower your transaction fees or speed up your minting of NFTs.  Your game will run much faster, cost much less, and be more trustless running on Phantasama’s Layer 1 blockchain.

Cross-Chain Capability

Interoperability on a blockchain allows users to move digital assets from one blockchain to another. Phantasma’s interoperable blockchain chain will not landlock your users’ assets, allowing gamers to move their assets with speed, and in many cases, at no cost to you or them, unlike competing layer 2 solutions.

Low Transaction Fees

Transactions on the Phantasma Blockchain only cost a fraction of a cent meaning you and your end user don’t have to pay an arm and a leg just to get into the blockchain gaming ecosystem.

Mint on Demand

No more pre-minting thousands of NFTs and draining your valuable development funds. With Phantasma, minting is done on demand so that you can save funds, and your users will always have access to your assets when they want them.

Protecting Your Work – Blockchain is better protection than a copyright, both for images and code. Blockchain has several inherit advantages in regards to security for you and your users.

Flooded Market – Steam, Epic, iOS and Android are all saturated markets. But on-chain gaming is a wide open blue ocean with vast opportunities for gamers and developers

Publicity – Phantasma can lend the power of the community to raise awareness for indie dev partners.

What is a Smart NFT on a blockchain?2022-03-21T21:22:44+00:00

The blockchain is an immutable and publicly verifiable record of transactions and provides a way to prove digital ownership of an asset. So, an NFT at its most basic is like a digital receipt. It’s a way to prove ownership of an asset through the exchange of a digital token.

The SmartNFT is not just a JPG image, but provides an abundance of utility to the gamer, such as an immutable ROM layer and a RAM layer that can evolve & level up.

The SmartNFT was purpose-built for gamer by gamers, with all the functionalities a game developer needs to build a game that runs like a game.

What is the environmental impact of the Phantasma chain?2022-03-21T21:25:43+00:00

Phantasma is proof-of-stake blockchain, a model that vastly reduces the processing power required for transactions. The entire Phantasma blockchain uses about the same as five average American households per annum.

Who is Phantasma?2022-03-21T21:34:19+00:00

Phantasma is a Carbon Negative blockchain designed for Gaming, Smart NFTs and dApp integration by industry veterans. Founded by Sergio Flores in 2018, his years of blockchain development, finishing at NEO before beginning Phantasma, launched the Phantasma mainnet in 2019. The blockchain is managed by a growing team of experts from a variety of industries.

Why build on a Layer 1 blockchain vs Layer 2?2022-03-21T21:41:53+00:00

Building on Phantasma with Smart NFTs allows you to create the game you want to create with a viable economy and the added benefit of leveraging a layer 1 blockchain. Phantasma doesn’t need ZK roll ups or Layer 2 solutions to lower your transaction fees or speed up your minting of NFTs. Your game will run much faster and cost much less running on Phantasma’s Layer 1 blockchain.

What is a Layer 2 Solution?2022-03-22T00:44:03+00:00

A Layer 2 solution is just that, a solution to the problems common with older layer 1 blockchains. A layer 2 provides scalability & speed on networks with slow speeds and high transaction fees but at the cost of having a more centralized system with greater security risks.

There are issues introduced into the process when minting your NFT game assets on a Layer 2 blockchain. You can avoid those issues by building directly on Phantasma’s layer 1 blockchain, which was designed with high speeds and low transaction fees from the start.

What is an Interoperable Blockchain?2022-03-22T00:46:51+00:00

Interoperability on a blockchain allows users to move digital assets from one blockchain to another. Phantasma’s interoperable blockchain chain will not landlock your users’ assets, allowing gamers to move their assets with speed, and in many cases, at no cost to you or them, unlike competing layer 2 solutions.

How costly are blockchain transactions?2022-03-22T00:50:28+00:00

Phantasma’s transaction fees and NFT minting costs are only a fraction of a cent. With the ability to process thousands of transactions per second you don’t need a layer 2 solution because Phantasma itself was built to solve the issues common to so many other blockchains.

Are NFTs a scam?2022-03-22T00:51:58+00:00

To call an NFT a scam is like calling a computer a scam. A non-fungible token is merely software to provide enhanced value and experience to a user. There are, however, scammers using NFTs and blockchains as a vehicle to steal from others.

Can I integrate my game into Phantasma right now?2022-03-22T00:54:43+00:00

Yes! Phantasma has a variety of gaming solutions. We can help you get started or you can easily run at your own speed using our documentation and developer resources.
