Dark Forest Community Round for Jump Crypto's Pit Event
A second community round for AltLayer-powered Dark Forest was launched as a part of Jump Crypto x Polygon’s “The PIT Community” initiative, from 4th Feb till 5th Feb. The game was hosted on a disposable flash layer.
Over a mere day, this round welcomed 800+ players from over 50 countries. The total number of in-game transactions recorded were 132,194. The highest score from a single player was 668,800,000.
Mini-games like this community round of Dark Forest — which run for a specific window of time — greatly benefit from a dedicated game layer for a short burst of time, given they create huge spikes in transaction volume when they’re running. Post-game, after the layer is disposed off, the in-game assets settle back onto the underlying chain after one which could also trade them on marketplaces like OpenSea.
