What is Duelist King?
We aim to be the leading multi-chain NFT card game powered by fairness, transparency and democracy. Many of these values are underlined by our in-house infrastructure with super exciting applications of the blockchain-like decentralized oracle, Random Number Generator and Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO).
What made you create your game?
Our founding team have known each other for six years before convening as Duelist King avengers. In addition to our passion for Blockchain and gaming, we believe this is the right time to start up something on our own and leverage the network and expertise acquired in the last six years.
Including Nicole, Duelist King has a great pedigree with its co-founders having distinguished expertise in the blockchain space:
Dzung Tran (CEO & Founder): Former solution engineer at Hextrust and R&D engineer at Infinity Blockchain Labs. Dzung Tran has been involved in many world-class blockchain projects.
Nam Nguyen (Product Designer & Co-founder): Nam has over seven years of experience in UI/UX and product development design. He has worked for multinational companies like Binance.
What sets Duelist King out from the rest of the competition?
Duelist King is not just another blockchain game – it starts as a game with world-class designs and gameplay powered by exciting applications of Blockchain. We believe that it doesn’t matter if you build a blockchain game or a mainstream game – at the end of the day, it should centre around gamers’ experiences; hence everything we are doing is to elevate this experience through the look, the feel and the technology behind it.
People can enjoy Duelist King as a cool card game that offers intensive, hard-core gaming experiences coupled with a different level of strategization while enjoying the transparency, fairness and stakeholder-centric values powered by Blockchain. Such technology is reflected in our product offerings – the distribution of the cards is randomized and verifiable on Blockchain, the unique combination of cards and luck-based dice eradicates the absolute unfair advantages of better off and more experienced gamers since you still have to compete against luck no matter how much money or experiences you’ve got.
Additionally, the DAO-governing model to be implemented next year will eventually transform Duelist King into a community-owned and community-driven game. All decisions on the card design, gameplay and tournaments will rest with the community.
At the end of the day, it’s all about Gamers’ Experiences, and we want to empower this trio of Enjoy – Engage – Earn features for gamers to get indulged incentivized while gaining more ownership in the game.
