The cryptocurrency used to trade cards on the web platform is BEM tokens. Prior to this utility, these tokens will be sold to fund the development of the web platform. Users holding BEM tokens at the time that the trading card smart contract is in instantiated on the Ethereum blockchain will be rewarded with some of the first 10,000 trading cards (1 free trading card for every 2,000 BEM held).
Bitcoin Empire will develop an open trading card web platform for users at all levels of technical expertise, which will make blockchain technology accessible to everyone, breaking down the barriers to entry while providing a fun and engaging game. This web platform will use the brand new non-fungible token system introduced by Dieter Shirley in late 2017 and will run a revenue-based trading system rather than a bitcoin-like cryptocurrency.
The web platform will continue to evolve once it has been released to the community. There is scope to develop various voting systems in which users can vote for which trading cards they like, or which future developments they would like to see on the platform. Ideas include lotteries, reward systems, giveaways and special cards that relate to Bitcoin news stories.
