Solitaire Blitz is a casual solitaire card game built on the Flow blockchain. The game is developed by Joyride Games Inc, a Web 3 game publishing platform designed to operate blockchain-powered games. Solitaire Blitz gained immense popularity as soon as it was released, with over 500K active users in the first four weeks of launch.
The card-playing game allows players to participate in PvP tournaments, weekly challenges, and leagues and win $RLY token. In addition, it brings the feeling of playing the classic solitaire game with additional blockchain and networking features. According to DappRadar, Solitaire Blitz is the number one gaming Dapp on the Flow blockchain, with over 142,695 monthly users.
In 2021 Solitaire Blitz’s Alpha version was launched. The addition of fiat currency followed it in Q3. The beta token launch and mainnet launch took place in 2022 alongside the partner token launch. According to DappRadar, Solitaire Blitz has high popularity in India and the Philippines, and most users own low-end Android smartphones, which cannot run hardcore high-performance games. So the lightweight Solitaire Blitz runs quickly on these devices.
As a result, the game’s 30-day growth rate increased by over 3112% in July 2022. Currently, it stands at 85.12% in the last 30 days. Solitaire Blitz has completed over 6.8 million transactions with a volume of around $1.25 million over the same period. The game has been securing a place in the top games of the week list since the first week of July 2022 and is still able to maintain it.
Solitaire Blitz Gameplay
Solitaire Blitz has smooth gameplay with a classy look. Unlike other blockchain games, Solitaire Blitz has no complicated web3 features. Instead, it is a simple card game with 1×1 PvP tournaments and token rewards. In the game, you can challenge players and earn $RLY tokens for winning matches. The weekly and daily challenges help players relax while improving their card playing skills.
In the game, players will match with opponent players having similar ranks. The player with the highest score will win the game. Through a unique algorithm, the skill-based matchmaking system ensures fair competition. This means that you will never be matched with a player having very high skills compared to you. Players earn XP after each match, which allows them to level up. In addition, power-ups, gameplay twists, and other exciting features ensure an exciting gaming experience.
$RLY is an ERC-20 utility token of Solitaire Blitz. The developers used RLY, a native token of Rally, a protocol that allows creators to launch tokens and build a digital economy. They used this existing token as in-game currency so that the game will get benefited from exposure to the RLY community as it is already traded on multiple platforms. Players can earn RLY tokens by participating in matchmaking tournaments. These tokens will be stored in the Joyride wallet and can be deposited using the Metamask wallet. $RLY has a maximum supply of 15 billion with a current supply of 3,025,250,369 tokens.
