Announcing ChainGuardians Collaboration with Elrond
Lead article written by the Elrond team which can be located here.
We have come a long way since the advent of gaming 50 years ago, from the early stages of games like Pong to the extremely complex RPGs like The Elder Scrolls. Two things that have evolved along with games are the ability to share a story and the ability to educate.
Games can be astonishingly complex and narrative driven, in addition to entertaining and developing a social following.
With ChainGuardians we want to tell a good story in an entertaining way while using revolutionary methods like blockchain technology. In an effort to do this, the barrier of entry is selective - many people need to meet certain requirements before they even hear about blockchain projects as a concept, much less any DeFi protocols and even less than that - a gamified system that has insane value and potential for those users.
This is the primary motivation behind the ChainGuardians collaboration with Elrond.
The ChainGuardians Collaboration With Elrond
ChainGuardians is a turn-based game, presented in real time and offers different settings within the gameplay itself, all while creating benefits and structural importance for in-game economic needs. The particular utility for ChainGuardians in relation to Elrond is the ability to deliver NFTs on the platform for the purpose of interacting within the game - NFTs give the ability to have interaction and gain rewards.
Working with Elrond allows our visual presence to be seen by more users of crypto using their web friendly technology tools. This will help advance DeFi and blockchain gaming ecosystems to make them more creative and user friendly. Elrond’s wallet technologies are also taken into consideration for the platform’s expansion, to provide extra comfort to the community.
Platforms such as ChainGuardians are able to educate through entertainment, which is perhaps the most powerful way for onboarding new demographics and capital into the new global financial system.

We were pleasantly surprised to find like-minded gamers on the Elrond team, who understand the kind of challenges we’re taking on. Together we were able to discover how the unique capabilities of the Elrond blockchain help us overcome some of the obstacles, and perhaps even broaden the spectrum of opportunities for our long term development.

In honor of our collaboration with Elrond we will be introducing a new Guardian to the Cryptoverse. Eren, the cyborg elven princess, returns from the far future to fight alongside guardians of legend and safeguard the genesis of the intergalactic-scale network. More details on Eren and our work with Elrond will be released shortly - catch a glimpse of Eren in the image header!
ChainGuardians is a blockchain meets superheroes gaming ecosystem which combines traditional gaming concepts with blockchain technologies. As well as boasting the world’s first NFT Mining Platform and interoperable RPG, ChainGuardians also merges awe-inspiring artwork with imaginative storytelling. ChainGuardians amalgamates the juxtaposing concepts of play-to-earn and free-to-play through a balanced in game ecosystem; enabling users the opportunity to make key decisions through governance.
Elrond is a highly scalable public blockchain that’s run by using a hybrid model of Adaptive State Sharding and Secure Proof of Stake. Users and nodes are the two main pillars of the blockchain which helps contribute to the massive throughput and execution speed of the platform. Elrond can process up to 15,000 transactions per second at 6-second latency.
We are excited to be working with Elrond and confident it will benefit the community in the future!
