Blockchain Monster Hunt: Multi-chain Universe Game on Harmony

Name of Project

Blockchain Monster Hunt

Proposal overview

BCMHunt is a multichain play2earn game with a single multiverse where players from different chain can come together to play in a single multiverse (multichain universe)

The goal of the platform and game is to allow user from all mainstream chain to use a common platform to play games (fully embracing open system of available technology.) The project strongly align to decentralized ethos by ensuring monster and data for NFT creation is based on blockchain attributes. (All NFT generated randomly based on block hash)

The project have also developed user friendly and simple to use on chain marketplace, multi-direction token bridge and NFT token bridge.

The project are able to incorporate multiple different chains and allow users from all chains to play together. As new chain are added, great amount of users are moved from existing popular chain due to various different incentive mechanism to move to new chain. Such as exclusive monsters that can only be caught on these chains, as well as catch benefits for specific chains and farming rewards only available on certain chains.

The project is currently on testnet v3 and is fully enjoyable by the public on 6 different test net chains. The mainnet of the game will happen on Jan 25th 2022.

Harmony chain is targeted be added in the playable test net by 2nd week of Jan 2022.
The current game enjoy ~500 concurrent users on an on going basis, and have a total player base of 70K users. In order to support new chain the team need to run additional hardware and assign developer time for on deploy and follow on going infrastructure upgrades.

A budget of 150K is request to bring the project to main net, covering on going infrastructure and continuous deployment for a period of 1 year. ~50% of the budget will also be use for rewards and incentive and marketing to promote the new chain to the community as well as additional farming and play2earn incentives for players on this new chain to make it attractive from users from existing chain to play from Harmony chain.

Thanks for the proposal. Unfortunately, it does not fall under any of the tracks from the guidelines. There is not enough traction for a Port grant and the ask amount is too big for a Launch grant. I recommend studying the guidelines and considering applying for a $50k Launch grant instead:

Applications of each launch must have prototyped a feature-full product. Harmony helps incubate these founding teams with product development, fundraising, and talent recruit.
We recommend a $50K equity-free contribution each:

$10K after launching a feature-complete product on our testnet,
$10K after forming a DAO with 5-out-of-9 multisig with our DAOs,
$10K after launching on our mainnet with audit,
$10K after 1K daily active users (with launch video, full PR promotion),
$10K after 10k daily active users (with a detailed roadmap, governance process).

Moreover, we recommend a 5-out-9 multisig account on Gnosis Safe with 3 governors from the project team, 3 governors from the project community, and 3 governors from Harmony DAOs – namely, ONEcommunityDAO, ONEdeveloperDAO, ONEincubatorDAO.

In all cases, we ask for 3-month exclusive campaigns with Harmony before more porting with other chains. We also offer follow-on investments – see 50 Investments ($20M) above; but, at the moment, you must have an outside, lead investor for us to match the funding terms. All codes, development materials and production assets must be fully open, preferrably with MIT or BSD licences; weekly updates must on sent on forum; and, all server deploys or mobile apps must be easily clonable.

@Idon_Liu Let us know how things look after the January 25 launch and let’s revisit to see if you need additional help. Game looks interesting.

Thanks for the suggestion, yes we had indeed struggle on trying to decide if we should be under a PORT or a Launch technically it’s an in between. For EVM ecosystem we can fairly quickly add Harmony on a fully playable test net.

We will suggest a proposal for Launch:
$10K after launching a feature-complete product on our testnet
$10K after launching on our mainnet with audit
$10K after 1K daily active users (with launch video, full PR promotion)
$10K after 10k daily active users (with a detailed roadmap, governance process).

These item we are not sure if it’s in scope:
$10K after forming a DAO with 5-out-of-9 multisig with our DAOs

As our project focus a lot of scalable infrastructure, we are looking at creating a DAO Grant Proposal which will extend our infrastructure:

Under the DAO, members can be included and vote for whether new NFT project should be included in our version of the NFT bridge to other chain (we already have this working on 7 different chain’s test net and 3 mainet). We will also look at expanding our best in class NFT marketplace to include other NFT collections, which can also use DAO voting for inclusion of new NFT collections. Currently we are doing maininet on our own collection NFT games, and once it’s prove stable we will look into submitting DAO proposal, but looking for more feedback on if this is the right direction.

  • Cross chain NFT Bridge for Harmony based NFT via DAO
  • NFT Marketplace for Harmony based NFT via DAO

Congratulations! Approved for $50K Launch grant. Looking forward to seeing this built out with the first milestone for a Testnet Launch built on Harmony :tada:

We look forward to continue investing time, effort and funds for a long-term partnership.

We’d love :blue_heart: to see updates in the future on this thread here, to keep the community posted on this proposal’s progress!

Looking forward to contribute to the ecosystem and working with the community and developers!
See you guys soon on test net deploy! Will post test net link once up.

Hi, I’m just checking in on your progress to launching on testnet, and happy to try to answer any questions.

Hi Brian,

We have fully released and tested all BCMH features on Harmony testnet


Harmony will also have a custom design designated Harmony Mascot NFT which will be exclusive collector NFT that people can get through loot box when playing on the Harmony chain.

Any key and passionate community core members can provide their address to get whitelisted for access to testnet at https://test.bcmhunt.com/ We can also fairly quickly have mainnet deployed. Very excited to bring Harmony chain into our game ecosystem.
