Let us get started.
What is Cyber Dragon?
Cyber Dragon is the project behind BinaryX, a
play-to-earn game on the Binance Smart Chain.
Initially, Cyber Dragon was a decentralized
derivative trading protocol, but has since
changed its concept to accommodate the boom in
the GameFi sector. Now, BinaryX is building a
metaverse game called Cyber Dragon, which
is a classic MMORPG with DeFi elements.
In Cyber Dragon players can create characters,
collect rare equipments and challenge Dungeon.
The final challenge is to defeat
the ultimate boss,
If this sounds interesting then let us go
further, but before that a Short Disclaimer
I am not a financial advisor, everything
in this video is for educational and
entertainment purposes only. Always do
your own research and consult several
sources before making any investment decisions.
All the information about the game in this video
can be found on the game’s website, in the
whitepaper and several other sources on the
internet. The information we gathered from
these sources is intended to be accurate at
the time of recording of this video. Please
note however that the blockchain based gaming
world is a very fast spaced industry and is in
a constant state of development and evolution.
With our QUICK REVIEW series, we wish to give
you a short summary of many blockchain games,
highlighting some important features of the games,
scoring and ranking them solely for orientation
purposes and not for judgement. If you have
already seen our previous quick review videos and
know our scoring system, you can simply skip the
next 2 minutes and continue with the video in the
next chapter. At the end of the scoring process,
an overall score will be created for each game we
have reviewed. Our review and scoring system is
very simple and answers the following questions:
1) Is the game already playable? If the
answer is yes, then one point, otherwise zero.
2) Is the game free-to-play? If you can start
to play the game without any investment then the
score is one point, otherwise zero.
3) What game modes are available?
Is the game a PvP or a PvE game or both modes
are available? If only one mode is available,
it could be PvP or PvE then the score is
zero points otherwise it is one point.
4) Is the game a play-to-earn game? For the
purpose of our scoring system the definition
of a play-to-earn game is where you can directly
earn coins or tokens through gameplay that you can
directly convert to stable coins or “fiatmoney”.
If the answer is yes, then one point. If, however,
players can only use the in-game currency they
receive as a reward to upgrade their assets or buy
“NFTs” and cannot directly convert it to real
money, then the score will be zero points.
5) The fifth question will have two parts. One
part is whether the game token is in the first
1000 ranked by market cap on Coinmarketcap
website. If yes than half a point, otherwise
zero points. And finally, we can give half a point
based on our subjective opinion of the game, where
we take into consideration factors like, the game
itself, network, team, activity, transparency etc.
Overall, the maximum score
a game can get is 5 points.
Let the analysis begin. First question.
Is Cyber Dragon already playable?
At the time of recording players can choose
from 2 types of games of BinaryX. These are
Cyber Dragon and Cyber Arena. Cyber Dragon went
live in August 2021, also the release of Cyber
Dragon battle mode in September 2021 and the
first season of PvP gamemode from November 2021.
According to the CyberDragon Wiki the requirements
to start playing CyberDragon are a Binance Smart
Chain compatible wallet such as MetaMask,
and also enough BNB to pay for gas fees.
So, all in all, the game is already playable,
we give to this topic one point. Score: one.
Is Cyber Dragon free to play?
The first game of BinaryX Cyber Dragon is a
Play to Earn Game based on Binance Smart Chain.
Players can create characters,
collect rare equipments and challenge
Dungeon. The final challenge
is to defeat the ultimate boss,
the Cyber Dragon. A hero will receive the dragon
treasure house rewards by defeating the dragon.
Cyber Dragon has a dual-token
economic system of BNX + Gold.
BNX is Cyber Dragon’s governance token. BNX token
holders can participate in community governance
and voting on major game decisions. Gold is a
BEP-20 token; it is the main currency in the game.
Golds can be used in most consumption scenarios in
the game. For example, heroes need to consume gold
to upgrade; gold is required for expenses when
challenging dungeons and preparing the equipment.
You can also use gold to hire other player’s
heroes to form a team together, etc. Gold can
be obtained by mining by participating
in daily work after recruiting heroes.
According to the Cyber Dragon gitbook to start
playing the game you need to recruit a hero.
You can recruit your hero
through the hero recruiting page.
You need to pay 1 BNX and 50 BUSD for each hero.
Each hero will get a random class, attribute and
talent. Each hero is in the form of NFT, and you
can freely transfer or buy or sell the heroes.
Some key operations of the game require
consuming BNX tokens, such as creating heroes,
forging rare equipment, challenging the
Cyber Dragon dungeon and some top dungeons.
Ways to get BNX tokens: buying from Dex such
as PancakeSwap, Babyswap, challenging specific
dungeons in the game, and participating in
other DeFi products of BinaryX. Most of the
BNX paid by users in the game will be used to set
event rewards and eventually returned to users
Summarizing the above information,
Cyber Dragon isn’t free to play.
Therefor we give this topic
zero. Score: zero points.
What game modes are implemented
in the game? PvP or PvE or both?
According to the Coinmarket website BinaryX is
building a metaverse game called Cyber Dragon,
which is a classic MMORPG with DeFi elements.
For example, game props derivatives are NFTs,
and players can choose from a selection
of gameplay modes like PvE and PvP.
In the CyberDragon Wiki you can read about
the different game types of Cyber Dragon.
These are for example the Adventures, which
are the most exciting part of the game!
Kill monsters, take on bosses, and seize treasure
chests containing all your deepest desires:
Gold, items, skill books, rare equipment,
and so much more! Your hero can embark on
two types of Adventures: Small Dungeons and
Large Dungeons, which are PvE gamemodes.
Small Dungeons can be challenged by lone
heroes. When you send your hero into the
depths of the dungeon, the system automatically
generates random monsters for you to fight based
on the dungeon difficulty level. You do not
need to control the battle process manually.
When your hero returns victorious,
you’ll receive the dungeon reward.
Large Dungeons can only be challenged by teams
of two or more heroes. When you send a team to
the Large Dungeon, the system will randomly
generate monsters to fight with the team.
The large dungeon may contain multiple stages,
each stage has a boss, and at the final, there
will be a final boss in the dungeon waiting for
the heroes. Beside dungeons there are PvP battles
as well. In addition to the bloody battles, the
heroes also have their own daily life and work.
When not on adventures, the characters
can do some job to gain gold.
You only need to click the button, and
the hero will start to work and gain gold.
Summarizing what has been said Cyber Dragon
games have PvP and PvE gamemodes as well.
So, we give this topic 1 point.
Is the play to earn format
implemented in the game?
Can you directly earn Coins or Tokens by gameplay?
CyberDragon gives players a range of ways to
earn. It offers multiple levels of play in a
variety of completely different ways, from
which players can earn attractive rewards.
BinaryX empowers users to trade binary
options conveniently via its improved
Automated Market Maker (AMM) Model. Through
this model, market makers can earn token
rewards by providing liquidity and becoming
trading counterparties of option buyers.
This helps maintain a balanced rate
of return among different users.
CyberDragon operates on a multi-token economic
system that uses BNX, Gold, and Crystals.
CyberDragon’s unique gameplay enables players to
recruit heroes through the hero recruiting page.
All characters and items in the game are
represented by Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). A
hero is classified under a random class, attribute
or talent. Underclass, seven roles are involved,
including the Warrior, Rogue, Mage, Ranger,
Knight, Priest, and Druid. Heroes get to kill
monsters, take on bosses, and seize treasure
chests containing all one’s deepest desires:
Gold, items, skill books,
rare equipment, and much more!
A player’s attribute is represented by six
core virtues: strength, agility, constitution,
intelligence, willpower, and spirit. With
each attribute serving as an inner drive,
players get to improve on their combative
skills. Talent, on the other hand,
is classified at different levels. Once a
player creates a hero, the hero is given a
random talent and gets the chance to level
up its status. This upgrade is achieved
by consuming a certain amount of Gold and BNX,
which increases the hero’s combat effectiveness.
Another interesting feature to note is
the “Daily Mining” function which presents
different job types for heroes to work and
earn from. All newly recruited heroes engage
in mining Gold for their daily work. There
is more opportunity for characters to make
and gain more Gold if their attributes and
levels fit into higher job requirements.
Once a player quits from a hero’s job, they
will never be able to participate again.
For such a game of adventure, there
are extra earnings to be gotten by
players through its ‘Lock-in Reward
Rules’. The rule permits players to
get up to 50% extra benefit ratio of
the dungeons when they lock their BNX.
The extra earnings, usually gotten from dungeon
rewards, can only be claimed once every 24 hours.
In summary, the more locked positions,
the more extra income a user can receive.
So, players have the possibility to earn BNX
token directly as rewards by playing the game,
which can be convert to real
money on the open market.
Therefore, we can give one point
to this question. Score one point.
Market cap and Subjective opinion
As of June 2022, BNX is ranked the
8th largest GameFi project on the BNB
chain by token holders as well as the 4th most
traded Metaverse project by volume. The game’s
main token BNX is ranked 223 on Coinmarketcap
website. So, the score for this is half a point.
As a point of interest, let me show you how
the BNX has performed in the last four months,
when most cryptocurrencies are in a slump. Let’s
look at how the Bitcoin token exchange rates have
changed since March 1st to June 22nd. The exchange
rate has fallen to the level of a year and a half
ago. Let’s look at how the BNX token exchange
rates have changed since March 1st to June 22nd.
Its price has risen from $25 to $140 in those
three months, now it is $130.5 at the time of the
video recorded. Let me also show you the change
in the token exchange rate since the game started
as of August 2021.
subjective score based on the
game, network, team, investors,
activity, transparency etc. is zero points.
Summary of our analysis:
1) Is the game already playable?
Yes, it is. Score: one point.
2) Is the game free-to-play? No, you need to pay
1 BNX and 50 BUSD for each hero to start the game.
