CryptoWars, a blockchain-based strategy game that features army battles between villages, recently partnered with blockchain project Maker (MKR) to fund the upcoming “Big Mid-Monthly Tournament” with 500 DAI.

According to the announcement, the competition will take place on August 17 at 11:00 AM (EDT), with the top 20 competitors receiving rewards. This marks the second major weekend tournament sponsored by Maker.
“Since May, Experimental partnered with MakerDAO to integrate the DAI stablecoin into CryptoWars and have awarded over 2,650 DAI tokens to 70 unique tournament winners worldwide which are part of the #PlayToEarn movement,” states Experimental in a recent press release.
CryptoWars lets players build custom villages, form alliances and summon an army to go to war with opposing factions. Given that it’s built on the blockchain, CryptoWars features unique game assets and other scarce elements that can be purchased, sold and traded on the game’s marketplace.
Last October, CryptoWars joined Loom Network (LOOM), a blockchain ecosystem for games and social apps, to leverage its software development kit (SDK). More recently, Experimental, the team behind CryptoWars, raised a $500K seed round to continue building out the game.
