BYOM – Bring Your Own Monsters
Are you not entertained? Blockchain gaming has boomed over the last year – and crypto trading cards (in particular) have cultivated million dollar marketplaces. One such example, and of the most consistently popular games has been Steem Monsters – a collectable trading card game where you can buy, sell, trade or battle monsters.
This past week Steem Monsters opened up custom tournaments – allowing anyone to host their own tourney and entice the public with unique prizes. While some of the most common prizes are in Steem or Steem Dollars (two of the local tinders) others are legendary cards or even ERC-20-like Steem Tokens from the smart contract platform, Steem-Engine.
So far, over $1,000 USD worth of tournament prizes have been given out with nearly 5k more to in the queue.
