CropBytes Officially Migrates to Polygon
All CropBytes assets that are a part of Phase 1 have now officially been migrated over from Tron to the Polygon network.
After sharing a roadmap for the first quarter of this year last month, the CropBytes team has announced that various different game-related assets part of Phase 1 have now been officially migrated over from Tron to the Polygon network.
This significant new change happened on March 14th and it means that more than 200k players who own NFTs that are, according to the Twitter thread from the game’s profile, collectively worth over $19 million, now have their assets ready to use on the Ethereum-based Layer 2 network as ERC-1155 tokens, allowing them to have “attributes of both FTs and NFTs” which is what the team considers to be “perfect for the nature of CropBytes assets.”
With this migration, players are now able to easily transfer assets from one crypto wallet to another, thus also making it possible to initiate peer-to-peer transactions, with the official article also stating that CB Army team leaders can now send out assets as a form of reward to soldiers, thus offering “even more incentive for community engagement.”
As a result of this migration, the CropBytes collection can now be found on OpenSea. With their recent partnership with Sequence however, players are now also able to trade items over on NiftySwap.
The reason for switching over to this network is not only because of its popularity, but also because of the higher “flexibility, scalability, and sovereignty” that the chain can offer to its farming simulation blockchain title, and with that, the “security, interoperability, and structural benefits” that comes with it being on Ethereum.
This however represents Phase 1 of the migration. In Phase 2, the developers plan to move Pro Animals, Superheroes and more assets over to the Polygon network. You can find a list of assets moved so far by heading to this blog post.
