Seascape is proud to announce that we are entering a new phase of development, and we couldn't be more excited about it! We've spent the past few years focused on proof of concept, building mini-games, creating smart contracts, and supporting protocols such as the Lighthouse and Scape Store. We're proud to say that we've created 120 smart contracts and grown our community in ways we couldn't have imagined just a few years ago.


But now, it's time for us to take things to the next level. We're entering a middle ground, where we're launching our DAO, acquiring more user proposed actions for our games, and even rebranding our mini-games. This is an exciting time for us, and we can't wait to see where it takes us. We're thrilled to be able to continue building on the work we've already done and take Seascape to the next level.


And with that, we want to introduce our new brand: Gaming3 representing the company's vision to combine the power of gaming, blockchain, and the future. It embodies the idea that Seascape aims to revolutionize the gaming industry by bringing it to the forefront of the Web3.0 world.


By bringing together these three domains, Seascape aims to create an entirely new gaming experience that allows players to find real utility with their assets and their in-game achievements. It also signifies Seascape's aim to make gaming accessible to everyone, regardless of their technical background, by making the blockchain technology easy to use and accessible to all players. Ultimately, the gaming3 brand statement represents Seascape's mission to empower players and developers alike by creating a vibrant and inclusive gaming community that thrives on the principles of Web3.0.


Crowns (CWS) Utility


The Crowns (CWS) token is the backbone of the Seascape ecosystem, functioning as a powerful utility token that powers a variety of activities across the platform. From purchasing in-game resources packs and diamonds in Mini Miners to building pools with Moondust in Moonscape, the CWS token plays a central role in enabling users to engage with and benefit from the Seascape platform. Furthermore, the token is integral to the Seascape DAO, which allows token holders to vote on key platform decisions and shape the future direction of the project. Whether trading NFTs on the Scape Store or acquiring project assets through the Lighthouse, CWS is the utility token that makes it all possible. With the ability to participate in NFT Brawls and engage with the Seascape community on the Scape Forum, the CWS token provides a wealth of opportunities for users to interact with the platform and unlock its full potential.


Prioritizing safety and being vigilant with the addresses of tokens is crucial for users. Simple measures such as double-checking addresses can safeguard your assets. Relevant addresses can be found here: https://docs.seascape.network/seadex/addresses. Crowns (CWS) is a vital utility token in the Seascape Network ecosystem, granting access to various features and benefits like Mini Miners, Moonscape, NFT Brawl, and the Scape Store. Acquiring and utilizing CWS not only supports the community's growth but also unlocks numerous exciting features within the Seascape ecosystem. So, take the first step today and join the gaming3 revolution by acquiring CWS and exploring all it has to offer.


The first quarter of 2023 was a nonstop blast for us here at Seascape Network and Metaking Studios. As we keep turning up the heat, we wanted to take a moment to look back at everything we’ve done and thank our amazing fans without whom none of this would be possible!


Seascape DAO


Seascape DAO is the new governance mechanism moving Seascape along the path to decentralization. It uses a voting system where users must meet specific asset holding requirements, such as CWS tokens or Scapes NFTs, to participate in a vote. Seascape Internal uses a weight system to determine the value of each asset for the voting process to ensure fairness. The votes cover a wide range of topics, including which games to host, which updates to prioritize, collaborations, and more. The votes occur at irregular intervals, with more expansions to voting parameters, suggestions mechanisms, and more on the way.


Seascape Anniversary NFTs


Just in time for the second anniversary of the launch of the CWS token on February 1, 2023, Seascape saw the release of the brand new anniversary NFT series. The Seascape Network Anniversary NFT series is a collection of digital collectibles that commemorate the company's milestones. They will also have utility within Seascape's games and other projects, providing players with exclusive in-game items or other perks. These NFTs are a great way for players and collectors to show off their support for Seascape Network and to own a piece of the company's history. Check out the Scape Store for your chance to get your hands on one, if you don’t already!


BLOCKLORDS Growth


BLOCKLORDS has had a fantastic Q1 2023 with remarkable growth and success. Their community has grown to an impressive 303k members across all platforms including Discord, Tiktok, Telegram, Linkedin, Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and banner sale preregistration. In terms of digital assets, 137k banners and 11k basic heroes have been minted along with 33 legendary heroes. BLOCKLORDS recently ran its second Feast, an event where players burn banners to collect roasted pheasants to feed the Kingdom. In total, 18,694 pheasants were distributed to users who participated in the event. The Feast saw the participation of 250 unique players, while 60 COOK discord tags were given out to players, which grants them the Cook role and allows free entries to future feasts. This added incentive encouraged more players to participate, making the event a fun and engaging experience for all involved.

BLOCKLORDS held a competition where participants were asked to design the game soundtrack cover and stand a chance to win exciting prizes. The prizes included a Tier 5 Legacy Farmer (which could be named by the winner), a Hunter, and Artwork Credits on the EP. The top 5 winners were also given the Artist role in the game.


Mini Miners


Seascape has recently released Mini Miners in its current open beta form. Previously, the game was in Early Access and all players received a free Common Mine NFT. The game has received positive social media attention with over 4000 retweets and a 7000% increase in engagement rate, which has contributed to the game's 40% social media growth.


Turkey & Syria Fundraiser


We are proud to announce that our teams recently opened a donation wallet in support of the non-profit organization, AHBAP. In response to the devastating earthquakes that have impacted both Turkey and Syria, we asked our community to join us in supporting this important cause. Thanks to the generosity of Seascape users, we were able to raise an incredible $8300 in aid of this crucial initiative. The fundraiser saw 250 shares and reposts. We are honored to have been a part of such a meaningful effort and look forward to continuing to use our platform to make a positive impact in the world. In the Press:

BLOCKLORDS has made significant strides in gaining publicity, with three press releases generating 22.02 million, 171.31 million, and 179.44 million views. Additionally, the game has been named as one of Coin Telegraph's 10 most anticipated games of 2023, further cementing its position in the gaming community. These achievements showcase the growing anticipation and excitement surrounding the release of BLOCKLORDS, and the team behind the game looks forward to delivering an engaging and immersive experience to players in the near future.

Partnerships


Seascape has run a series of successful partnership campaigns for the second anniversary. Some of our most recent partners include Secondlive, StarryNIFT, and Gametaverse. Players can expect more partnerships in the future as Seascape continues to grow and expand its offerings. In addition to this, BLOCKLORDS has announced collaborations with some big names in the industry. BLOCKLORDS has launched on Polygon, with a new hero category: Hunters.


Events


We thought it would be a good idea to mention all the locations that our founders represented both Metaking Studios and Seascape for the world to admire this year. The teams participated in several major events, including Pocket Gamer Connects, Animoca Brands, ETHTL, NFT Paris, COIN OP, Paris Blockchain Week, and GDC. These events provided an opportunity to showcase Seascape and Metaking Studios to a wider audience and connect with other industry leaders.


Looking forward to the next quarter, Seascape Network plans to continue its growth and development, with more exciting announcements and events on the horizon.


Your Game. Your Rules.

Enjoy the Seascape.

Seascape's 2nd Anniversary Livestream was a resounding success! The entire Seascape community gathered together to celebrate two years of progress and growth, and to look ahead to the future. During the stream, the team shared exciting updates and plans for the coming year, including new programs, campaigns, and projects. In this recap article, we'll be covering all of the key highlights and takeaways from the event.


The 2nd anniversary livestream covered a lot of ground, including a look back at Seascape's achievements thus far and an overview of ongoing partner campaigns. The first section of the stream was dedicated to discussing Seascape's accomplishments and ongoing initiatives, as well as the introduction of a new Anniversary NFT series. The highlight of the section was the reveal of Seascape DAO, Seascape's new governance program, which will be the subject of its own dedicated article in the near future.


In the following section, we spoke with Seascape’s own tech wizard Medet Ahmetson about Seascape’s recent technological advances, which included an overview of the complexities of our smart contracts, and the introduction to Seascape Development Services, how it has been employed in the construction of more complicated projects like BLOCKLORDS, and the future of what we plan to provide to the wider Web3 community. Our smart contracts are pushing the boundaries of what is possible, being combined one by one like lego bricks. Now with many cross-chain projects under our belts, we are moving forward into ever more complicated territory.


Next up, we had a visit from Erlan who gave us updates on Moonscape and what we can expect into the future. The latest version of Moonscape is set to introduce exciting new features that will enhance the overall gaming experience. These features include new functionality for the MSCP token, the addition of Moondust for premium functions, the option to mint cities or rovers as NFTs, and multichain NFT pools. The game play will now also impact gaming outcomes, with the introduction of higher level rovers. Additionally, there are new gameplay aspects that will be revealed in the coming season. All these new features promise to make Moonscape a more dynamic and engaging experience for players.


In the following section, we spoke with COO Nicky Li, who discussed the overall architecture of the Seascape ecosystem. Among our current projects, Mini Miners stood out the strongest. In the latest version of Mini Miners, you will be able to hire a manager to optimize your operations, trade the gold you've mined for CWS, and convert CWS into the premium currency Diamonds. You will also have the option to instantly purchase and unlock new miners using Diamonds, as well as unlocking new pets to guard your community. These features will enhance the gameplay experience and offer more options for players to progress and thrive in the game.


Finally, in the last section, we met with CEO David Johansson who went over real life actual pre alpha game play for BLOCKLORDS seen for the very first time by the outside world. While the depth and breadth of the ordeal is too exhaustive for this article, here are a few highlights to keep in mind: BLOCKLORDS features 11 different types of buildings, 7 different types of Squads with varying collection abilities, and 16 different Command types for a variety of tasks. The game is also working on introducing specialized resource characters such as Hunters, Miners, and Builders, as well as new farming heroes to boost your squad's skills.



He also briefly discussed the roadmap for the year, which includes several updates, new games, implementations and upgrades to the Governance system, and more and more opportunities for CWS hodlers to be on the ground floor for new updates, functions, programs, and campaigns going forward.


There’s a whole lot more going on this nearly two hour anniversary special, far more than we have space to cover. If you have any further questions, just ask us on our socials for any clarifications about sections you may not have fully understood. We’ll have a number of articles in the coming days and weeks elaborating on topics that were covered. Also, pay attention to our social media for more clips and highlights!
