It is well known that people enjoy observing physical combat as both sport and entertainment. This has been the case throughout history, from ancient gladiator arenas to modern mixed martial arts fights.
The concept of observing and predicting the outcome of sporting events has been present in the real world for a long time, and now it is entering the virtual world through Taunt Battleworld. The company has announced the upcoming launch of its in-game currency $TAUNT to help power the game
Taunt Battleworld is a digital collectible fighting game that combines gaming and gamified live viewership. It offers free-to-play and esports options, as well as the ability for players to own and trade assets.
The incoming release of $TAUNT is planned for late Q1. Confirmed launchpads include BSCpad, Wepad, and Spores.
How Taunt Battleworld Works
Taunt Battleworld is a game set in a futuristic world where “Old Gods” send their fighters to battle each other on a place called Battleworld. The fighters for the “Old Gods” are called Acolytes Warriors and are represented by rare non-fungible tokens (NFTs). There are 25,000 Acolytes available, divided into five races, which can be obtained through NFT drops. Instead of controlling their Acolytes directly, the battles are simulated by a proprietary algorithm that predicts the winner based on various factors. Players can enter their Acolytes into tournaments and earn rewards for engaging with the tournaments by watching battles and predicting the outcome for free. Taunt Battleworld is powered by the patented Taunt LIVE platform that allows for real-time interaction that affects gameplay.
Taunt Battleworld is a game developed by a group of industry veterans who have worked at companies like EA Games, THQ, and Amazon.
The game is backed by Genblock Capital, Polygon Studios, and Shima Capital.
Magic Eden, a leading marketplace, recently listed Taunt Battleworld as one of the top 7 gaming projects on the Polygon blockchain that are launching in the near future."
