Soccer Infinity will launch on Binance Smart Chain in Q4 2021, then Fantom Opera as soon as its smart contract capacity has proven to be matured enough for gaming.
Originally, the core team planned to launch on Ethereum. However, due to issues with gas fees and gaming scalability, Binance Smart Chain and Fantom Opera were both chosen for their speed, low fees, and large user base. Binance Smart Chain will be the first platform where Soccer Infinity core smart contracts will be deployed on, followed by Fantom Opera when it is fully ready. The Soccer Infinity game server will be the bridge that connects users on both chains and allows them to play against one another freely within the Soccer Infinity game environment even if they are on different chains.
We understand that Binance Smart Chain, Fantom Opera and Ethereum all have their own drawbacks and have also been scoping out any other potential solutions should a partial or full migration be required in the future to ensure Soccer Infinity can expand sustainably. Other solutions currently being considered are:
  • Alternative Layer 1 chains
  • Layer 2 with focus on NFTs, such as Immutable X
  • Dedicated sidechain, similar to Ronin of Axie Infinity
  • ETH 2.0
While blockchain technology has introduced various benefits to gaming, we believe it is still in its infancy in terms of readiness for mass adoption, especially for fully decentralized game features. As such, we believe that a middle ground between decentralization and centralization can be reached, where tamper-proof ownership is always made public and transparent, while gameplay mechanics can be run off-chain on centralized servers.
