Cheeze Wizards is built on blockchain technology. To access the blockchain, you need a digital wallet. A digital wallet will house your Wizards and your ether. Treat it like a bank account and make sure you don’t forget your password or lose your recovery kit.
We recommend you play Cheeze Wizards with Dapper.
Dapper is a smart wallet and an easy way to safely connect to the blockchain. It is our recommended way to safely store your Cheeze Wizards and ether.
Ether, or ETH, is the cryptocurrency used on the Ethereum network (the blockchain Cheeze Wizards uses). You need ether to summon Wizards.
If you use Dapper, you don’t need to worry about gas — we got you covered.
Every action in Cheeze Wizards gets sent to miners on the Ethereum network, who crunch the numbers and confirm the action. Miners receive a network fee (sometimes called a “Tx fee”) paid by the person conducting the action.
That fee is determined by two factors: the gas price, and the gas limit.
- Gas price is the amount of ether offered per gas unit to pay miners to process your transaction. This number is typically expressed in gwei (1 Gwei = 0.000000001 ETH).
- Gas limit is the maximum amount of computational power you’ll allow the miner to use before they top out and stop processing your request.
We cover the gas and transaction fees for dueling in Cheeze Wizards, but if you’re not using Dapper to play, you will need to pay the fees associated with summoning Wizards.
No—blockchains still don’t scale. That said, when we created CryptoKitties and ran into the challenges of scaling a blockchain product, we learned a lot and should be able to prevent a similar cat-astrophe.
Cheeze Wizards is designed for fewer players and there are mechanisms in place to support this design, like each Elemental Wizard’s increasing in price compared to the last one sold. If the network becomes unreliable or overloaded, the tournament can be paused to ensure fairness and safety.
