POC on Coinbase Wallet

Coinbase is one of the most popular platforms for buying and selling cryptocurrencies. It has a mobile app that users can use to deposit and withdraw their cryptocurrency using their mobile device. However, users who want to withdraw POC, you can do so by using the Coinbase app. We have created a deep link that will send the user securely to their Coinbase wallet app on their smartphone. This will add an extra layer of security, and ensure that information remains confidential.

Introduction to mPOC

We are pleased to introduce a new POC category — mPOC to enrich the user experience and fun for Castle Defense and to extend the utility of POC.

mPOC is a short name of membership POC which is basically, the POC that is transferred from Metamask into PA Wallet. Either the purchased POC (currently from Pancake Swap) or the aPOC or bPOC withdrawn to your Metamask wallet, can be deposited back into PA Wallet for the purpose of upgrading your NFT Castles and topping-up your Arena Pool XP via mPOC.

In this guide we will highlight aPOC, bPOC and talk about the uses and features of mPOC.

  • aPOC is nothing but wPOC which was acquired by playing PVE mode of Castle Defense before launching PvP mode (of Castle Arena) and has undergone a prudent audit by the team at Pocket Arena.
  • The audit is carried out as per the following rules: XPs earned from playing max 20 times per hour is allowed whereas XPs earned from playing more than 20 times per hour is cancelled.
  • bPOC is the shortened version of battle POC which is converted from tXP which is acquired in Castle Arena, by participating in battles.
  • tXP earned and accumulated can be converted to bPOC.
  • mPOC is the POC that the user deposits from MetaMask wallet to PA account.
  • mPOC is that it can be withdrawn without any limitation.
  • mPOC can also be spent for buying items like Epoint, player XP, Castle, Castle Item, Attack Strategies and more.

mPOC’s use and features

  • No withdrawal limitations
  • Can be spent in NFT Castle market.
  • Faster transfers from metamask to PA wallet.

Going Back To Fundamentals

Late last year when I pitched Pocket Arena to crypto VCs, some of them were not impressed with the idea of Pocket Arena running on centralized governance and structure (database & private blockchain), and that Pocket Arena intends to use the public blockchain (Ethereum side-chain which we are currently developing) for end user’s P2P game item trading and the ownership purpose only. Instead, they seemed to prefer a project that runs 100% on-chain. Even though I explained why a gaming service should not be 100% on-chain, they were not bothered about that.

However, having experienced the recent two major disastrous events (The 600M$ hacking of Ronin/Axie Infinity & Terra-Luna collapse) that came out of the 100% on-chain projects, investors have now started to realize that giving full-betting on this kind of projects can be very dangerous.

Here are the main overlooked factors.

100% algorithm-based DeFi projects -there are always some structural errors and coding errors in any technology and software development which needs constant updates and patches. Applying this directly to finance can lead to a disastrous situation. That’s why most developed financial centers like Switzerland use human beings for the final release of funds. It takes at least 24 hours for this monitoring process for fund transfer. Conservative approach but it is safe.

100% on-chain GameFi projects, -there are always bots, abusers and hackers who only want to exploit. They are pretty smart but cancerous enough to kill your project. Thus the developers should take into consideration this in their development to prevent these kinds of users and need to move faster than the abusers and should not compromise the security for the users’ convenience.

Today, Pocket Arena runs the following way.

1. Pocket Arena works in a centralized governance manner using database and Hyperledger private blockchain.

2. Our compliance team and bot detection systems are monitoring user behaviors 24/7. We also receive abuse reports from our community.

3. For users who withdraw above a certain threshold of POC (bPOC), KYC is required.

4. POC withdrawal is subject to our finance team’s manual review and approval. It takes about 1–2 days but there is no risk of system hacking.

5. After most of the malicious accounts cleaned-up, our Public Pool XP has decreased significantly, but the positive takeaway is that users enjoy fair esports and fair rewards. Now the winning rate over land is much higher (it was almost impossible to win any land in a legit way) thus, fair players are more motivated to play the Castle Defense.

“ Most importantly, in order to realize the true gaming assets ownership and P2P trading as a true Web 3.0 gaming platform, POC-powered Ethereum side-chain (Falk) is under development and expected to release the Beta this summer.”

At the end of the day, any Web 3.0 projects need to provide intrinsic values for end users apart from the used technology itself. The end user normally is not interested to know and they do not need to know which technology is used underneath.

I have no doubt that the paradigm shift from Web 2 to Web 3 has already begun. Having said that, the journey to a reliable and stable 100% on-chain Web.3.0 gaming platform may take some more time than we expected. In the current transitional period, I believe hybrid solutions like Pocket Arena (adding the benefits of public blockchains on top of centralized structure) would be more and more popular and practically useful.
