The blockchain technology used in our project keeps track of the tokens owned by each of our users. It also opens up the possibility of freely trading these assets with other users and using them to obtain different in-game items.
The protocols used for tokenization of assets used in the game are two:
- ERC20: Galactic Quadrant (GQ) and other resources like Iron (IRON), Copper (COP)...
- ERC721: Used for digital assets that represent in-game objects such as weapons, armor, etc...
For now, the project operates on the BNB Smart chain, formerly BSC (Binance Smart chain), while all the foundations are being laid. The proposal to start on this chain is due to the fact that the transaction fees are cheaper for users and therefore open the possibility of bringing the project closer to more users.
However, one of the strengths of Outer Ring is the future integration with more than one chain, giving the user the freedom to choose the one that is most convenient for them without losing the interaction with Outer Ring.
Figure 1 represents graphically the high-level idea of how crosschain implementation will work.

The interaction of the blockchain with the game is done in two ways. On the one hand, by burning any of the tokens that you want to put into the game, taking them out of the circulant. The other way consists of minting the tokens that represent the assets you want to take out of the game.
