Cheating Rampant in Blockchain Chess, Leading to Shutdown of Immortal Game’s Play-to-Earn Features

The management team of the blockchain chess game Immortal Game has chosen to discontinue its non-fungible tokens (NFT) and play-to-earn (P2E) features due to widespread cheating concerns.

Stating that their primary focus is on chess, the team aims to position Immortal Game as a leading online chess platform that prioritizes fairness and enjoyment for all players. To achieve this, the developers are exploring Web3 and decentralized technologies, with a particular emphasis on anti-cheat measures and community engagement.

Despite their intentions, the team has faced significant challenges on this journey. In an announcement on Wednesday, they stated, “After careful deliberation, we have decided to stop development on play-&-earn and NFT collectibles related features on Immortal Game.”

The developers of Immortal Game discovered that the open-ended provision of substantial cash rewards inadvertently led to a significant increase in cheating on the platform. This, in turn, compromised the user experience for genuine players seeking a secure and equitable online chess environment.

As stated by the team, “The unintended consequence of offering money to players has increased the unfair practices, and we have decided that we cannot stand by and let this cheating happen any longer.”

In response to these challenges, the developers have opted to change their approach.

Tokens Discontinued

The developers, alongside the online chess community, have achieved something noteworthy together, according to the announcement. They acknowledged the positive impact of giving back rewards to the community and creating a genuine opportunity for people to earn income through chess.

In light of this, the team has chosen to redirect their focus to the core essence of what makes Immortal Game special—their passion for chess. This shift in focus is aimed at providing a more secure and enjoyable experience for all players, ensuring the long-term sustainability and integrity of the platform.

New updates reflecting this change have been implemented since the past Monday.

The marketplace on the platform has been discontinued, and the Immortal Game platform no longer supports play-to-earn (P2E) Checkmake tokens (CMTs). However, these tokens will persist on the blockchain.

Users’ Ethereum (ETH) and CMT balances will no longer be visible on the platform, but the tokens will remain in the owners’ wallets. Users with custodial wallets will need to connect a personal wallet to facilitate the transfer of assets.

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) minted on the gaming-focused Immutable blockchain will also continue to exist on the blockchain. These NFTs can still be utilized on Immortal Game in Immortal mode.

To simplify features, the developers of Immortal Game have decided to remove various elements, including listings, play-to-earn (P2E) development, references to Checkmake tokens (CMT) and Ethereum (ETH) on the website, daily missions containing CMT rewards, and cryptocurrency rewards in the referral and tournament systems.

The team has not ruled out the possibility of future tournaments including fiat currency rewards.

As of the time of writing on Thursday morning (10:00 UTC), Immortal Game had an all-time volume of $885,600, with the highest price any asset in the collection ever sold for being $14,300.

Simultaneously, the fully diluted market capitalization of the CMT token was $360,075.

What we write about

I want to save money. Will cryptocurrency work?

Cryptocurrency is essentially virtual money that operates in a decentralized manner, not through a bank but directly on multiple independent computers.

Every cryptocurrency has two main components: the units of digital exchange called “coins” and the network within which the exchange takes place. These units can be transferred between wallets and exchanged on exchanges. The networks in which these coins exist are called blockchains, which translates to “chains of blocks.”
