The Avalanche (AVAX) crypto is catching attention on Thursday ahead of the launch of a role-playing game (RPG) on the platform. Pixion, a game development studio, is slated to launch the Fableborne Game on Avalanche at 1:00 pm ET on Thursday.
Fableborne is a play-to-own multiplayer game. The “mobile-first, built-accessible game” allows players to embark on a journey to explore the Shatterland, a kingdom in the game.
Players fortify their island and raid other players’ bases for gold and other things. According to Pixion, the game is a perfect blend of Action RPG and Base Building.
It allows players to collect resources, compete in Pixion League, and claim well-earned rewards to own their favorite Fableborne heroes.
Another reason for Avalanche grabbing attention is its recent proposal to ApeCoin DAO to migrate their metaverse ‘Otherside’ on Avalanche blockchain.
However, it is unclear whether DAO has control over the metaverse. But if it has, will it go through a formal governance voting?
Yuga Labs, the company behind ApeCoin, has not commented on the proposal yet.
ApeCoin (APE) universe includes the Otherside metaverse and the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC). Its utility token is ApeCoin. Avalanche has offered Otherside faster transaction processing speed, high throughput, and better scalability at lower fees.
These developments may have drawn people’s attention to the AVAX token. Its trading volume increased by 10.68% to US$777.8 million, but the token price declined 15.27% to US$24.28 at 5:00 am ET on Thursday. It could be due to the fall in the broader market, down more than 3%.
What is Avalanche?
