‘Etheremon’ Game Migrating to Zilliqa Because of Ethereum’s High Gas Prices

Etheremon, a ‘Pokemon clone’ built on the blockchain, will be switching from Ethereum to Zilliqa in light of scalability issues facing the Ethereum network. Ethereum gas price has been unpredictable due to its large user base and unethical practices by some exchanges causing network congestion and leading to slow transaction speeds and high gas prices. In their medium blog post Etheremon said:

High gas price has been an issue limiting the gaming experience of our players for so long. Over the last few days, we even observed a good gas price shoot up to 100 Gwei, making the transaction cost in Etheremon go up 100x.

Long-term solution, we are glad to announce that we will work with the Zilliqa team to explore Zilliqa as a scalability solution for Etheremon. The higher throughput and low gas of Zilliqa’s sharding solution offer players better experience.

At the time of writing this post, safe gas price is 91 GWEI. Read more at Unhashed
