Shanghai-based NEO gaming platform BlaCat revealed last week that it is adding Imperial Throne, a multiplayer strategy blockchain game that was originally designed to function on the Ethereum (ETH) network.

According to the announcement, Imperial Throne allows players to become lords of an empire or leaders of tribes. In the game, players bid for land, mine tokens and recruit soldiers, all while working with allies to wage war against opposing players.
The game also features quests for the game’s native asset, Imperial Throne Token (ITT). The token mining, which occurs when a player purchases a piece of land and becomes a lord, accounts for 60% of the ITT distribution.
With the move to the NEO blockchain and specifically the BlaCat platform, Wang Fangfang, the director of operations for Imperial Throne, hopes to access a faster blockchain network that allows for easy scalability. BlaCat’s parallel application chain groups and wallet SDK is ultimately what drew Imperial Throne to make the switch.
This news comes after multiple Ethereum-based games have made the decision to transition to the TRON (TRX) network, either with a simple port or a full-blown move. Taken together, it seems that blockchain-based game developers are actively seeking the best platform for their new and existing titles, and are very willing to switch, given the right offer.
