The Mimir Quiz is a new, super-exciting crypto gaming project with unique Play-to-Earn features & inherent token $MIMIR.
The $MIMIR token will be integrated on Polygon’s massive network and utilize its full-stack scaling solutions to offer a seamless user experience in their gaming app, finally bridging the gap between technical and non-technical players. Mimir Quiz app players will be able to transact the Mimir tokens gasless and securely. By using Polygon’s full-stack scaling solutions to create a multi-chain ecosystem they are going to fully utilize Polygon’s second-layer solutions to make their new user onboarding experience with blockchain gaming as smooth as possible.
Polygon is one of the most popular second-layer solutions running on top of the Ethereum blockchain network and thus the Mimir Token will exist on not only the Ethereum blockchain but also on a Polygon commit chain where they can fully utilize all of Polygon’s scaling and security capabilities in-game. By running their token on 2 layers they are taking advantage of the strength and size of the Ethereum network while still being able to mitigate the biggest complications of running a scalable Dapp directly on Ethereum.
They will also make transactions in-game next to instant and free for players and as their user base grows Polygon will enable us to have maximum efficiency in data throughput and avoid any risks for clogging the network during big live events.
Maximizing Mass Adoption & Minimizing Network Choke Points
They will integrate many features from Polygon’s full-stack solutions to enable seamless swapping of the Mimir token between the two blockchain layers. By existing on two blockchains the Mimir Token will be able to benefit from both Polygon’s and Ethereum’s network strengths. From a company standpoint, Polygon will give us a large advantage when developing advanced blockchain features and greatly minimize their time to market when integrating advanced features. With their amazing technology, they can finally start to greatly ease the process when onboarding non-technical users to their app and make the entire gaming experience as fun, supportive and non-technical as possible so new users have full support in all aspects of the Mimir token and quiz app functions.
So How does Polygon’s Full-Scaling Solutions Actually Solve This?
Mimir Quiz will integrate gasless transactions by native meta transactions which is powered by Polygons Biconomy’s tool and enables the Mimir Quiz company to pay the Matic gas fees for all token transactions. To make sure the entry barrier for their players is simple and fun when compared to other blockchain gaming experiences the Mimir Quiz will integrate the capabilities of the Polygon PoS and zkSync bridge to be able to create a magical user experience for switching $MIMIR tokens between their 2 blockchain layers.
Polygon is also taking a strong public stance in evolving its second layer capabilities to crypto gaming projects. The Xaya SDK will also be a big part of their game structure in the future and since they are also entering a partnership with Polygon it made a lot of sense for us to choose Polygon as their full-stack scaling solution.
When integrating Biconomy’s gas solution in their game app, $MIMIR transactions in-app will not get registered directly to the blockchain, but instead when a player executes any type of transaction in their app the back-end logic integrated from Biconomy signs the transaction from the sender and then an off-chain relayer node sends the crucial tx data to execute the transaction, pay the gas fee from a set account and then register it on the Polygon blockchain.
This way any player can send, withdraw or receive $MIMIR tokens completely without any gas cost since the action of just cryptographically signing a transaction is gas-free and the actual execution of the transaction is paid by a preset wallet owned by the company holding Matic.
Polygon & Mimir
In the coming future as they continue developing and becoming more familiar with all of Polygon’s full-stack scaling tools they will create more and more functionality for their gaming app that has a focus on mass adoption. For example they want to integrate reversible transactions for all their users in-app when using the Mimir token on their Polygon commit chain.
They will also continue to expand to other use cases based on what becomes available in the SDK as more and more open-source modules become available. Xaya will also be used to register big gameplay events on an immutable ledger that is public and open to all. Xaya will also help us in identifying cheaters in the form of bots that try to extract the info from the live quizzes to be used in searching up the answers online.
Quotes From Both Teams
“Being an Ethereum developer I have always been restricted in my dApp development capabilities mainly stemming from the issues the popularity of the ETH blockchain brought with it. My first intention was to build the Mimir Quiz game on Ethereum’s widely adopted blockchain but due to gas fee, scaling and transaction issues without clear solutions Polygon’s blockchain network became the obvious choice for solving our games’ technical hurdles.
With the amazing technology and seamless user experience that the Polygon full-stack offers, the Mimir Quiz now has the potential of becoming the first game to break the barriers of the cryptosphere and get the mass market of 350 million mobile quiz players to discover the new era of Play-to-Earn and blockchain gaming.”
