On April 10, 2018, Asura Coin announced a community airdrop program, which users can register for prior to an upcoming public token sale, set to take place in May of 2018.
About Asura Coin
Asura Coin is an eSports platform to be built on the NEO blockchain that allows gamers the opportunity to “bet, compete, learn, discuss, and earn.” The platform will allow for live streaming, community betting, and commissions to further fund future events.
Users will be able to choose which tournaments are hosted on the platform through monthly voting, and will also have the ability to place bets through a game-oriented immersive betting system. To maintain Asura’s ability to host monthly tournaments, a percentage of winnings will be deposited into a monthly prize pool.
Asura will utilize smart contracts to enable ‘community-voted unique betting rules,’ which will be created by users. Users will be able to suggest betting markets based on any functionality supported by a game’s API and submit them for voting. The most highly rated markets will be audited to automatically provide odds, using the smart contract to transparently provide the information.
Asura also aims to provide professional in-depth game guides to coach players through the intricate details of high level gameplay. This will include teaching professional decision-making processes, predictive gameplay, gameplay psychology, winning strategies, situational item-builds, situational skill-builds, situational decision making, and many more.
The Asura platform will primarily focus on four games in the initial phases of development, which include Counter Strike: Global Operations, Dota 2, King of Glory, and League of Legends. Further games will be evaluated to be hosted on the platform in the future.
Asura Coin chose to go with the NEO blockchain because of NEO’s quick transaction times, and scalability opportunities.
