- An iconic First-person shooter classic game has just been inscribed onto the Dogecoin blockchain.
- Despite the controversy, inscription technology is being used for innovative projects like Doom on Dogecoin.
- The Dogecoin launch showcases how inscriptions can enable deploying entire games on blockchains, opening doors for a new era of decentralized gaming.
- The Doom deployment raises questions about copyright infringement and potential security risks associated with inscriptions
- After failing to break above $0.09, Dogecoin faces a possible decline to $0.06 or a rally to $0.09.
Imagine Dogecoin becoming one of the leading blockchain gaming platforms.
This might already be happening.
First-person shooter Doom, which debuted in 1993, went on to become one of the most popular video games ever made. In the game, a space marine must battle his way through legions of demons on both Mars and Hell scoring points as he moved further into the game.
Over the years, Doom has been redeployed on several platforms and devices. However, in a recent turn of events, a developer who goes by “Mini Doge” claims that he has relaunched the game on the Dogecoin network.
Doom On Dogecoin
Despite the issue with inscriptions crashing blockchains and being repeatedly hounded by the “anti-Ordinals army”, they are becoming very popular.
Inscriptions tech recently made its debut on the Dogecoin network, using the DRC-20 standard, which is similar to the ERC-20 standard on the Ethereum network.
Mini Doge, the developer who deployed the game, used inscription technology to store the data for the Doom game on the Dogecoin network.
As it turns out, all of the Data displayed, used and recorded by the game is pulled directly off the Dogecoin blockchain and is then displayed on the game emulator.
Everything Else You Need To Know
The launch of this game on the DOGE network only goes to show how much more is possible on regular blockchains, using Inscriptions.
It also sows the versatlity of DOGE, considering how it is also open to anyone with a browser and internet connetcion.
It is also one of the first examples of whole games being deployed onto a decentralized network like Dogecoin.
However, there are still some other issues to address with the latest development.
One of these questions is about inscriptions:
If a game like this can be deployed onto DOGE, then it is also possible on Bitcoin, since they both share the same codebase.
Keep in mind that quite recently, the US National Vulnerability Database just flagged Inscriptions technology (which is the same technology that was used to deploy Doom) as a vulnerability that allows attackers to hide data on Bitcoin.
Just like Luke Dashjr said in his initial criticism of Ordinals technology, Bitcoin could be open to attacks like DDoS, spamming, or even trojans and malicious code injection.
Another issue is that of copyright laws.
As it stands, Doom is a copyrighted game: a property of id Software, the original developer of the game, and Bethesda Softworks, the current publisher of the game. The firm is still selling and supporting the game, which has a strong modding community and a devoted fan base.
By deploying Doom on DOGE, Mini Doge may have infringed the intellectual property rights of the game owners.
How Far Is Dogecoin From $0.1?
Dogecoin attempted to break above $0.085 this weekend, on 20 January.
However, the bears quickly arrested the bulls as soon as the cryptocurrency hit $0.09, pulling it straight down to $0.07794 where it now sits.
Dogecoin is now hanging over the $0.07 support and is consolidating at the time of writing.
So far, this price level has held Dogecoin up since 22 November and is on the verge of being tested again.
If the bulls are able to start a rebound off this price level, Dogecoin will be free to travel straight up again to $0.09 at least.
However, if this doesn’t happen, and we see a break below $0.07, the bulls will have no choice but to follow the bears down to $0.06, where both will likely hash things out again, and decide whether we see a bounce or another decline.
