Every action in Fishbank game is a transaction in Ethereum blockchain signed by your wallet private key. That requires a gas (Ethereum network kind of fuel) as a reward for miner to include operation in the block.
That makes sure every fish token is 100% owned by player. It cannot be transfered, dimilished or removed without player’s will as long as private keys are kept in a safe place.
All crypto fish tokens are securely stored in Ethereum blockchain — an immutable database distributed worldwide. Every game action (fighting history, transactions) may be accessed and checked through public nodes explorers.
The core parameter of every fish token is the weight which defines its size and influence. Fish is able to gain weight by hunting others and taking a bite off loosers.
Fighting and catching like any other game action are based on Ethereum smart contracts with open source code, that grants fair rules and transparent formulas.
Game economy can’t be influenced by developers as there is no tools to change code after smart contracts are deployed and game is launched.
Crypto fish tokens are traded directly between players, Fishbank game takes just 4.5% comission from confirmed deals to maintain game operation costs.
There is a chance to preorder crypto fish token for the Stable game release by contributing Ether for game development.
