Packing Up: Joining Sipher


Recommended Posts

Sipher is a new blockchain-based gaming experience that takes the best of two worlds: Surrogates (avatars) and the Cypherpunk movement. In the metaverse, players use avatars to interact with and combat each other, engage with the virtual world, generate rewards, and much more.

“The NFT craze is over” is a common phrase ever since Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) made their way into the blockchain world. No matter how many times this phrase is repeated, it has never been true so far.

Colored Coins, Rare Pepes, CryptoPunks, CryptoKitties, Axie Infinity, and Bored Ape Yacht Club are all projects that has shown that there is always new space for innovation.

NFTs have evolved from their earlier days when they were simple collectibles known to a few “nerds” to being one of the hottest things even for those out of the crypto space. Not only can NFTs replace the baseball cards of old but they also have been integrated with dynamic video games and serve as a membership card for “exclusive” clubs.

Now, a new blockchain game is aiming to become the next best thing in the world of NFTs after the success of its predecessors: SIPHER. In this new project, not only are NFTs part of a dynamic and vibrant metaverse but they also operate as your characters to participate in-game.

The game’s first collection will see 10 thousand unique avatars that can then be used in “sequencing”, allowing their holders to get unique traits that then can be used in the metaverse to gain a competitive advantage and increase rewards.

What is Sipher?

Sipher is a new blockchain-based gaming experience that takes the best of two worlds: Surrogates (avatars) and the Cypherpunk movement. In the metaverse, players use avatars to interact with and combat each other, engage with the virtual world, generate rewards, and much more.

The game takes place in Sipheria, a technologically advanced virtual World of Blocks with a high level of influence of cyberpunk, mechas, cryptography, nanotechnology, and genetic technology. In Sipheria, humankind saw itself forced to create a new form of meta-existence: Siphers.

These new lifeforms were the result of CRISPR-genome extraction and ethereal elements, having all the qualities necessary to survive in the world and contain the consciousness of their creators (you). As the player, gamers can interact with the world freely by using their unique Siphers as their avatar.

As Siphers are NFTs built upon the Ethereum network, these meta-digital beings are entirely owned by their holder and can take advantage of all the benefits of the NFT ERC-1155 standards to gain unique traits, customizations, abilities, and more!

A Unique Approach to NFT

Popular NFT projects have been heavily focused on the collectible aspect, forgetting about the potential the technology has in other areas. This has made the mainstream audience think of NFTs as just a visual representation of something that has no real value. To many, owning an NFT is just the same as taking a screenshot, recording, or copying the original content, and has no justification to see its values.

However, games like Decentraland, Axie Infinity, and Bored Ape Yacht Club, have shown that NFTs can have value as collectibles while also serving other purposes. In the case of Decentraland, they represent land in which players can create what they want; Axie Infinity used it to represent creatures owned by players, and Bored Ape Yatch Club as a membership card for a club with social functions (The Bathroom).

Sipher’s NFTs work as a key to participate and interact with the game world, as unique collectibles that can be modified by players using different mechanics, as in-game characters used to battle other players, a story-telling mechanism, a virtual assistant, customizable emotions, and much more.

Sipher has many of the elements that not only make a videogame popular but also that allow collectors to find and trade unique assets. These 2 qualities make the game attractive for gamers and collectors alike, allowing it to capitalize on two different audiences in different ways.

As if this was not enough, the project also has a big financial element to it similar but not quite the same as what Aavegotchi tried to do: Providing players and collectors with a way to generate gains.

Siphers can not only be burnt (if you are cruel enough to do so) to get the game’s cryptocurrency in exchange, revived, and traded as such many collectibles but they can also be used to generate $SIPHER token which can then be staked to generate earnings in different ways. This makes Siphers a mechanism to open the doors to new investment possibilities,

Finally, the developer also makes use of Machine Learning powered chatbot to educate about the game, create unique humorous, philosophical and entertaining conversations between players and the game.

In conclusion, Sipher has the potential to become much more than just another NFT project: a blockchain game that will redefine P2E (Play-to-Earn), and more.
