Sui Network: The New Gaming King
A simplistic yet addictive blockchain-based game, Sui 8192, is causing a seismic shift in the daily transactions on the Sui Network. This phenomenon has caused a buzz in the crypto world as data platforms report that the Sui Network’s activity has outpaced that of Solana.
The On-chain Revolution: Sui 8192
Launched in October 2022, Sui 8192 is a sliding tile game reminiscent of the 2014 viral browser game, 2048. Each move made by players is recorded as a transaction, adding to the count of the Sui Network’s daily transactions. Furthermore, every instance of the game mints a new object, akin to creating an NFT, and each game transaction requires a gas fee payment, as per the Sui Foundation.
The Architects Behind the Innovation
This pioneering game was crafted by the Sui wallet provider, Ethos Wallet, as the first fully on-chain game on the Sui Network. Its open-source nature and the impressive demonstration of the Sui blockchain’s capabilities have caught the attention of crypto enthusiasts.
Surpassing Solana: The Numbers Speak
On-chain analytics provider, Artemis, recently posted data revealing that the Sui Network’s transaction count has soared past 20 million, surpassing Solana’s 16 million daily transactions. However, Artemis has admitted to using a different method of calculating daily transactions for the Sui Network, as it counts transaction blocks instead of transactions for comparison with Ethereum and other chains.
Mysten Labs’ Bullshark Quests: Adding to the Momentum
Another contributing factor to the Sui Network’s activity is the Bullshark Quests initiative by Mysten Labs. Bullshark holders have the opportunity to compete for rewards in the coming weeks, based on their engagement with Sui games like Sui 8192. These games offer players the chance to earn SUI tokens by completing various tasks and competing against other players.
The Future of the Sui Network
The Sui Network, launched in May 2023 as a potential “Solana killer”, is evidently making waves in the world of on-chain gaming. While SUI prices have seen a minor dip, dropping 0.5% to $0.678 at the time of writing, the impact of the Sui 8192 game on network activity suggests a bright future for the Sui Network in the blockchain world.
