Andrey Durakov, CEO of LetItPlay, recently shared his reasoning on why the company chose to build its collectibles game, Wizards.one, on EOS (EOS), the blockchain platform known for its delegated proof-of-stake (DPoS) consensus model.
Today we're putting the spotlight on CryptoWizards (@WizardsOne), a CryptoKitties-style game #BuiltOnEOSIO with a trading system that can be replicated and scaled, and where colorful digital characters compete for real and virtual prizes. https://t.co/MnGxsKxVfz

In the interview, Durakov highlighted the development path of Wizards.one and what exactly drew the company to develop it on EOS over the more popular choice of Ethereum.
“It’s not a secret that Wizards.one was inspired by CryptoKitties, which caused a huge clog in the Ethereum network due to the players’ activity for a few days in December 2017,” said Durakov. “It was very interesting to contrast the EOS and Ethereum networks; the expected performance of EOS is several orders of magnitude faster.”
The game is centered around Cryptowizards, which can be purchased directly in the game’s marketplace or won via competitions. These digital characters can be used in battles or tournaments for real and virtual prizes. The team is now focused on building out a separate marketplace for gear and equipment to boost character skill.
EOS has shown significant network growth in recent weeks and even surpassed 60,000 unique active accounts, a major accomplishment.
