According to a press release provided to SludgeFeed, the collaboration is led by Mythical Games, EOS Lynx, Scatter, Cypherglass, pixEOS (the maker of pixEOS Paint) and several other blockchain firms, all of which saw a need to develop better digital goods standards for the development community, with a specific focus on the EOS (EOS) blockchain.
dGoods can be seen as a push toward a commercially-endorsed benchmark for creating and distributing digital assets on the blockchain, states the Mythical Games team. Applications of these assets span multiple industries, but can most aptly be seen in the blockchain gaming community where in-game items can be represented by network tokens.
The website describes dGoods as “a logical extension of the standard EOS token with the addition of significant functionality improvements that will allow teams to easily integrate and display virtual items.”
With the announcement comes the release of version 0.1, which includes the following:
- Metadata Templates for 3D and 2D assets
- Certificate of Authenticity
- Multiple categorized tokens in one token contract
- Fungible and non-fungible in one contract
- Open source functionality
“The goal of our first draft was to make sure we captured the fundamentals while creating a solid foundation for the dGoods standard that we can continue to expand and build on top of,” added Rudy Koch, Mythical Games’ head of blockchain. “We’ve collaborated with some incredibly talented teams to design a spec that we’re confident sharing with the development community at large. The dGoods standard is a free and open standard aimed at supporting a diverse range of digital assets and requirements. With the release of this draft, we encourage those who are interested to review the spec, pressure test our design, and provide [their] valuable input.”
