After almost 2 years of development of the Decimated game and a strategic decision to put all blockchain integration on hold until the game was sufficiently developed, the technology had matured and the market sentiment for blockchain games was ripe, the team have decided to integrate Solana Blockchain into the Decimated game to enable the use of NFT's and a play-to-earn economy.
Solana is the fastest blockchain in the world and the fastest growing ecosystem in crypto, with over 400 projects spanning DeFi, NFTs, Web3 and more. The developers behind this project succeeded in creating a network that could surpass today’s payment processors in terms of Transactions Per Second and functionality. As such you can expect to see more developers make the switch over to Solana, as the original blockchains continue to suffer scalability concerns.
Solana also supports writing on-chain programs using the C and C++ programming languages, which is also the language used in Unreal Engine, for Decimated.
As a result of this migration, the old DIO smart contract will be discontinued and a new DIO smart contract will be issued in Q4 2021. Owners of the original DIO will be able to swap them for the new DIO when the marketplace is launched and before the game is released.
The new DIO smart contract will not be available publicly until after November 2021.
