Ludos protocol is a decentralized gaming ecosystem solution based on multiple side-chains and cross-chain technology.
The Ludos Protocol is a decentralized solution for game ecosystem.
The protocol is mainly composed of three parts:
Main chain + multi-sidechain infrastructure
The Ludos main chain uses PoW+PoS as its consensus mechanism, and implements a Plasmalike multi-sidechain system to improve scalability. Games with many thousands of users can perform many complex operations on their own sidechain, with only minimal interaction with the Ludos main chain;
Toolbox for game developers
The toolbox contains: an abstract blockchain interface, game assets issuing/operation tool, a BaaS service for maintaining game sidechains, data persistence tool, fair pseudorandom number generator, etc.
DApps and incentivized game ecosystem
The ecosystem includes: a decentralized game assets exchange, a game assets management wallet, a decentralized game distribution platform, a fair ranking and achievement system, a game DAICO and investment protocol and incentive rule sets for all participants.
Problems of Current Blockchain Games:
Lack of Variety
Most current blockchain games can be categorized into several models, such as pet feeding, mining, or gambling. The market is fulfilled by CryptoKitties-like games and BullockCity-like games. Because of this, customer loyalty toward these blockchain games is very low. The market lacks sophisticated and interesting blockchain games. Current blockchain games often emphasize the collection and the potential of in-game items to appreciate in fiat. As a result, only opportunists instead of game lovers are attracted to them.
Low Efficiency of the Main chain
CryptoKtties once caused a traffic jam to Ethereum blockchain, which shows that a single popular dApp is capable of slowing the entire blockchain. Optimizing the consumption of computation and storage in blockchain is key to the development of blockchain games.
Difficulty for Developers
At present, blockchain games lack mature game engines and developer tool boxes. Developers must handle minor issues of technical infrastructure in blockchain, so they cannot concentrate on developing the game itself. Additionally, the GAS protocol results in high operating costs and affects the commercial application of blockchain games.
Limited Application Scenarios of Tokens
Traditional decentralized platforms cannot provide enough token incentive and community autonomy for developers, artists, and players. Traditional tokens in blockchain games are limited in regard to application scenarios; thus, the economy system is incomplete. Therefore, traditional decentralized platforms might not be able to continuously enhance the industry.
The Ludos Protocol implements a Plasma-like multi-sidechains system to scale the main chain, a game can issue and peg its assets on the Ludos main chain and perform complex game contract operations and store data at the sidechain level. Meanwhile, Ludos also provides State channels based off-chain smart contract interaction solution as a complementary to the sidechain system. The blockchain game developers can always easily interact with the blockchain system through the toolbox provided by Ludos, despite of all the technical details. Ludos believes that only an infrastructure is strong and efficient enough to support multiple scalable DApps can provide its true value.
Making blockchain empower the game industry and applying the Token Economy to assist the flow of resources among the entire industry is the vista of Ludos team. Ludos would integrate sidechain, cross-chain, smart contract, and State channels technology to enhance the performance of the current blockchain structure in the limitation of CAP.
Ludos utilizes smart contract to realize all the core logic of game operation. Additionaly, digital assets, core game activity data and pseudorandom numbers will be stored on the Ludos main chain. All actions are transparent, open to all users. Besides from core data, other data such as scripts, graphs, and comments will be stored on IPFS and will be connected with relevant smart contracts. Thus, Ludos will be able to achieve high extendibility without unnecessary GAS costs.
