Blockmason Weekly Update: 2019-06-06

📰 Welcome to the Blockmason Weekly Update!

Hello, Blockmason community! Another week is upon us, which means it’s time for another Weekly Update.

In this edition of the Weekly Update, we have a new tutorial on retrofitting a blockchain powered economy into a game, and we release our Link SDK for JavaScript and .NET

Are you ready? Let’s get started!


Retrofitting a Blockchain powered economy into Ultima Online

Hello Blockmason Community, we have been working on putting together a series of tutorials for newcomers to Blockmason Link, and we are excited to share our latest tutorial today.

What we will be showing off today is how to integrate blockchain into an existing game using Blockmason Link. The game we have chosen for our example is the 1997 classic MMO Ultima Online. Ultima Online is a great choice to work with because it has lots of open source servers and a very strong player-run community with a robust economic system.

Today, using Link, we are going to create an alternate currency called Platinum.

Players will be able to trade in that currency within the game, but, unlike standard in-game gold, platinum also creates cryptocurrency transfers in the background.

Blockmason Link SDK for JavaScript and .NET applications

Hello Blockmason Link community, we are pleased to announce that we have just released the Blockmason Link SDK for JavaScript and .Net applications, as well as a more gaming-centric SDK for in-game economies.

With these additions, we are making strides towards having Link powered application development be the best way for developers to pursue more creative and innovative projects and get them to market rapidly.

What is an SDK?
A software development kit (SDK) is a set of software development tools that help developers create applications for a development platform. An SDK can typically include support for an integrated development environment (IDE), which serves as the central programming interface.
