For companies that are looking to expand, taking the Hydra route may well be a valuable proposition.
The business can expand in myriad directions, allowing one project to gain from another by impersonating the many headed snake that features in Greek mythology
“It is amazing to see how the development studio has grown from the experience of running an Initial Coin Offering,” said SKARA CEO Pablo Rodriguez, “Many of the staff involved in these cutting- edge endeavors have brought something new back to the game itself, and a profound knowledge of the game has provided insights to the ICO groups on how best to fit the cryptocurrency elements into the design.”
The result? Tons of innovation.
“We are doing our best to keep up with our ingenuity–it is easy to get carried away,” said project manager Marc Boulesteix, who doubles as SKARA’s CMO. “But inspiration like that is hard to beat when it comes to motivation.”
With a simultaneous game launch and token sale, there’s ample work to be done.
“The task lists are daunting for novices, such as our new batch of game testers and community engagement team,” Boulesteix smiles. “But we just take it one day at a time.”
The community has been eagerly looking forward to the beta launch and the debut of the cryptocurrency SKARATs, which can be utilized to protect the gamer’s assets, invest in new ones and also trade or sell them to various counter parties outside the SKARA platform.
“I think the game assets are some of the most splendid bits of illustration in a game I have ever seen,” said long-time player and SKARA community member Stez. “Certainly they will be valuable compared to what you see in successful eSports games today.”
The SKARA team’s craftsmanship goes beyond the actual game to the world that’s been designed and constructed around it.
Rodriguez reminds us that it was actually the other way around.
The SKARA script came first,” he explains. “I had a vision about the story of two characters who reunite again after many years and have to face an apocalypse in the middle of a Fantasy world. As cliche as it could sound, everything changed as soon as I started to develop the world of Skara to give context to that story.”
SKARA -The Time of the Two Suns, the debut novel authored by Rodriguez, will be released in Spanish next week.
As the hydra heads continue to sprout up, SKARA is earnestly looking for others working on similar projects, finding winning partnerships to be exceedingly gratifying.
SKARA co-founder Cesar Ortega claims “Sharing knowledge and expertise is so rewarding and valuable. We are developing strong partnerships in the eSports realm, the crypto realm, and even the traditional publishing realm. Expect some exceptional things to come from these partnerships.”
SKARA’s ICO is central to one such partnership with a major new crypto player in Europe, Blockchain Reserve.
“We heard about SKARA last year and instantly saw the potential,” said Blockchain Reserve founder and CEO James Roy Poulter. “The blockchain space is perfectly applicable for their approach to empowering players by securing their digital assets.
Once the Initial Coin Offering concludes by February 23, 2018, partnerships with other games such as eSports and even eSports betting are in the pipeline.
The SKARA team encourages newcomers to sign up for SKARATs now, despite the offering being oversubscribed.
