In a future much closer than you imagine, Blockchain Technology has taken over the world. Do you have what it takes to lead the evolution?
Cryptage Origins is the first in a series of games, a mixture of card trading and venture tycoon running on the Ethereum Blockchain.
Start your game with limited resources (cards) and quickly progress while you play. You can win bonus cards and unlock achievements in your journey to become the most successful Venture Capitalist in the world.
There are 45 unique collectible cards featuring various locations, mining equipment, characters, projects, and boosters. All of the cards in the game vary in rarity.
Each card you collect in Cryptage Origins is a non-fungible Token. This means that each card is a unique token, stored within your wallet and forever truly yours. Unless you want to trade it on the Marketplace, where you’ll be able to sell or buy cards for actual Ether.
Card packs have guaranteed and transparent rarity system along with profit distribution in place that automatically allocates funds to game developers, designers, and art creators.
What to expect In Cryptage Origins
Cards are in charge here. All of your items and other game resources are available to you through the form of Cards. There are six different card categories as presented below.
- Locations: Different places for keeping employees and mining equipment.
- People: Contains leaders, developers, executives, traders and consultants.
- Projects: Various tasks and activities in order to bring you experience points and funds.
- Mining: CPUs, GPUs, and ASICs to skyrocket your earnings.
- Power: Various additional power sources for your locations, like batteries and generators.
- Miscellaneous: Special items and booster cards.
Immediately as you start playing you will receive some of the basic cards, you should use your location card and start your first project. Do this a couple of times and you will be level 2 in no time.
Saving your Progress
On your upper right corner, you will see a save button, it’s obvious what save does but what you have to know is that every time you click save, a transaction is triggered on the ethereum blockchain for which you will have to pay a fee on the network. By hitting the save button, you will also get on the leaderboard, isn’t that cool? 🙂
Updates are on their way
Cryptage Origins reported that more than 100 active players are testing the game. Blockchain games are on the rise and if you consider how many players are actually playing cryptocurrency games, they are doing a great job.
The team is working hard to bring quality updates and meet the standards of the community. With the final version of Cryptage Origins, we are going to see the following new updates.
Visuals are extremely important in any game. Whether we’re talking about a blockchain game or an old-school one, (i always wanted to say this) graphics is the Alpha and Omega of every Game.
Developers are working to create a new graphical interface, much cleaner with better usability.
Due to the nature of the game, I personally believe this task is a hard one, you can’t fit that much information and keep it minimal but, it seems they did it.
The most essential aspect in every blockchain game is its marketplace. In Cryptage Origins. You will be able to trade cards with other players and sell them for a profit. Have you seen a great card? Deposit some ETH to your metamask wallet and buy it.
What would any game be without Achievements?
Developers are working on a new Achievements system that will set unique goals for all players. By unlocking achievements you’ll also unlock and collect unique in-game badges.
Here’s a sneak peek at how the Achievements screen will look like once Cryptage Origins launches to the main net.

Right now you are not able to play from multiple devices but this will come to an end as soon as the game is officially launched.
