1/ "Fits at Chess" might seem like a punchline, but it's a real health concern 🧠. I've been exploring research papers on the negative effects of #Chess on well-being, societies, and ecosystems, and found the first report of chess triggering #epilepsy from 1965. #NorwayChess Image
2/ These cases fall into a category of reflex #epilepsy - seizures are activated by specific, identifiable triggers. Such triggers can be external (flashing lights, hot water 🚿), internal (emotions, thought 💭), or a mix of both.
#chess #NorwayChess #neuroscience #brain Image
3/ Among reflex #epilepsies, the most common are those triggered by visual stimuli or light changes (1 in 4,000). Much rarer triggers include eating 🍎, music 🎵(1:10 M), writing ✍️, orgasm 💋 and even lying. #Chess, other #boardgames, and #cards can also trigger seizures. Image

With #smartcontracts on the scalable and feeless #Shimmer network, we will see the rise of frictionless, decentralized and scalable #web3 economies. 🚀

We gathered our six major use cases for you! 🧵👇
1) Energy management

Shimmer is well suited for energy markets, real-time data management and moving #carboncredit or #renewable energy certificates without transaction costs.
2) Digital Identity

Shimmer is ideal for #NFTs, native tokens and smart contracts to interact with digital identities. Identities can control other identities, which enables flexible modeling.

#geopolitical tedium is not for me. I like the world of ordinary matter and energy (and physics and chemistry and all of it) far too much. I like tools and instruments and equipment, and knowing how to use them. fretting about #Russia or #China is not my highest priority.

yet American #politics and political #media have completely inundated popular culture—because @jack Dorsey and #MarkZuckerberg permitted the politicization of #Internet #socialmedia. on specious grounds they kicked down the door between "public" and "private" online.

now, both @TheDemocrats and the @GOP, both @UKLabour and the @Conservatives, and political parties and political figures all over the world freely do business in full public view; @elonmusk openly conspires with @mtaibbi and @lhfang and @bariweiss in full public view.

(AIRDROP NOT CONFIRMRD it's a strategy 😉)

@BeamerBridge is a 🌉 between rollups with world-class user experience:
exact amounts, nearly instant transfers, and all the same security as #Ethereum L1

#airdrops #airdrop Image
2/ Beamer enables users to transfer ERC20 assets between EVM compatible rollups, without going via L1
Testnet part has already been done last year and this bridge is currently in mainnet 🤷🏻‍♂️

Did you miss the testnet? Maybe
Did you miss a great airdrop opportunity? Maybe not 😊🎁
3/ Since Jan 18th 📆 the new Beamer L2 wormhole just opened.

Kind of a ‘space highway’ that interconnects rollups, including #Arbitrum One and Optimism, now allowing you to bridge USDC from/to Arbitrum as well 🔥 Image

According to Matthew Ball, the reasons for the decrease in spending on US gaming include inflation causing a decrease in discretionary spending, fewer gaming hours post-COVID, and a limited number of major game releases.

#GameFi #games #report #gamer Image
This marks the first year-over-year decline since the dot-com era, though it is an increase of 1% from 2020.
On the other hand, 2022 saw a record-breaking amount of $127 billion invested in 1,250 deals in the gaming industry, as reported in the latest 2022 State of Gaming report by Drake Star.

Doing a deep dive into #EducationalGames, trying to figure out how to incorporate learning into entertainment games, not the other way around, which is usually the case with #SeriousGames. A thread of screams from the deep end. 🧵
Let's start from the end: what do we want to achieve? Often, we want to teach notions, which is not the easiest but can be done with some thought. A recent good example is Pentiment, an engaging mystery RPG deeply grounded in medieval history. Or maybe… A screenshot from the game Pentiment.
… we want to teach skills, trickier but doable — here's a list of examples…

1/ #GM and #MerryXmas!

What is @Treasure_DAO? What is @playbridgeworld? How does @Treasure_DAO keep all of their long list of connected games cohesive (hint: $MAGIC)? In this #visualthread, we will discuss how @Treasure_DAO aims to be the ‘decentralized gaming ecosystem’.
2/ Let’s take a brief overview of the whole @Treasure_DAO ecosystem. Multiple NFTs and #games are connected to Treasure, but at its core, stands @playbridgeworld.

Complete list of @Treasure_dao cartridges:

#GameFi #Web3 #Blockchain #NFT
3/ @playbridgeworld is where $MAGIC is mined (emitted). The whole process is gamified using social coordination and gameplay mechanics.

What is the minimum number of elements in rock-paper-scissors like systems and why?
#gamedev #gamedesign #gamebalance #games
1/18 Image
RPS is often used in video games. Such systems are perfectly balanced but don’t make options in a game equal in power.
2/18 Image
What the RPS-like systems do instead, is they make each option’s power a relative concept, dependent on a situation. This adds a layer to players' decisions and a sequence of interesting decisions is what makes good games!

I just tested Covid+ & I'm shivering with a 102F fever, but I'm still prompting🚀

Here's my exploration on "#badges". LMK what you think (hopefully that will make me feel better 🥰💪)

Mega-thread 🧵 w. short explanations but excellent style consistency.

100% #AI-generated
Badges. The "trophies/achievements" awarded to players. Ubiquitous in many games. Sometimes highly esteemed.

I trained SD on various badges (from "Graphic River", to which I have a subscription). I'm looking for very intricate patterns.

Here's a first run (prompt: "a badge").
Because of the skull in the batch above, I tried "badge, skull, symmetrical , realistic, intricately detailed, beautiful, 3D render"

And here are the skulls.💀

[1/7] Es kann schon davon ausgegangen werden, dass das zusätzliche #XRPL Volumen sehr viel höher sein wird als erwartet. (Besonders am Anfang)

Ernstzunehmende Vorsicht wurde bereits vor Monaten durch z.B. @rippleitinNZ ausgesprochen, bezüglich der Stabilität des #XRPL.
[2/7] Im Vordergrund sollte stets die Funktionstüchtigkeit der #Payments und die Stabilität des Ledgers stehen. Sind diese elementaren Bausteine gefährdet, ist Vorsicht geboten. 🧐
[3/7] Laut den Testergebnissen von @nbougalis auf dem Blog von @RippleXDev sind "optimistische" zusätzliche 384 TPS zu erwarten, allein für das Minting.

Man kann also allen #XLS20 "#Mintern" nur anraten, vielleicht nicht sofort ab der ersten Sekunde in die Tasten zu hauen. RippleXDEV NFT Minting TPS Overview

1/ #blockchaingaming is here to stay .@AxieInfinity has trailblazed #playandearn #nftgames, but it’s also a natural target for anyone against #NFTs and #web3 #blockchain games. This hostility is unwarranted, unfair and often without the benefit of facts and context.
2/ .@AxieInfinity remains one of the most played #NFT games in the world with the following metrics:

771,000 monthly-active on-chain users
370,000 weekly-active on-chain users
2.3 million Axie holders
4 million Ronin wallet downloads $AXS $RON #blockchaingames
3/ The financial strength of @AxieInfinity is starkly evident, with current FDV close to $4B (it listed at $27M). It not only weathered a major hack but also repaid all losses to affected players, a testament to its durability and care for the community.…

@Garbaj2 This issue is sadly nothing new: Some #Games [i.e. @CallofDuty:#ModermWarfare3] have certain weapons [i.e. the RSASS] that have no fire rate limit ingame.

@Garbaj2 @CallofDuty Seriously, #MW3 is absolutely unbalaced:
@Garbaj2 @CallofDuty To the point that it allows firing guns faster than they can cycle in real life.

Don’t worry about being original.
Plagiarism is stealing from one source. Originality is stealing from many.
Making a perfect copy is humanely impossible. Seek #Inspiration whenever you can find it.

Remember that #Inspiration is active though.
Play different #Games (#TTRPG, #Videogame, #BoardGame, just play).
Watch weird stuff (#Movies, #TVseries, #Documentaries).
Read #Books (#Fiction, #NonFiction, #Fantasy, #Crime, #Horror).
Just watch people (great for #NPCs).

Don’t worry too much about what’s good and bad. Look for stuff to steal, modify, reinterpret, corrupt.
A game you don’t like to play may teach you something yet.
A movie you don’t care about might have a cool character.
Keep your eyes open. We don’t see a lot.
