HeroesJourney™ is a new concept in the world of F2P and MMO mobile games. It is a progress based strategy game where the player starts the game with modest resources. The goal is to progress through the game and earn more experience and advance in level. The player is rewarded throughout the journey for doing well and helping others. Core functionality of the game revolves around the player interacting with other players in the virtual world. As the hero spends time and completes the tasks, they will be rewarded with the in game currency known as the HeroesJourney Coin (HJC). This coin can be used to power up the character, obtain game world power items and refresh energy. HJC will be featured in a world wide in game marketplace. Players will be able to buy and sell items to each other. All transactions will be done with HJC.
HJC allows the F2P player to participate without having to spend fiat currency in the app store. This helps level the playing field and gives all players a positive experience. Fraud is eliminated due to the Limited-Proof-of-Work nature of the blockchain technology behind HJC.
All transactions on the network will incur a modest 1% HJC transaction fee.
The HeroesJourney Ouroboros edition is designed for non-profits that would like to raise funds through the game. This edition will enable the player to designate a charity to receive half of all transaction fees. There are over 1 million eligible charities in the US that can benefit from the revenue stream of in game HJC tokens.
The HeroesJourney™ game and the new HJC with its decentralized in game marketplace will create a fully transparent and open network for transacting digital goods. The blockchain will provide the safest storage for virtual assets, and smart contracts will create a transparent public ledger.
The Ethereum blockchain will serve as the backbone for HJC. We have chosen Ethereum because of its flexibility, standards and wide spread adoption. Gamers can easily buy and sell in game items using the game interface or an Ethereum compatible wallet. The blockchain will act as a game database, securely storing all digital goods and HJC and account for who owns them.
With the new HJC, we revolutionize the F2P market by unlocking digital goods from each game and creating liquidity for them via trading in the decentralized ecosystem. Blockchain technology allows game item trading to take place in the game and universally across any third party marketplaces, safely and securely.
HJC will utilize the Ethereum blockchain, the current industry standard for issuing custom digital assets and smart contracts. By conforming to the ERC-20 token interface, HJC will be compatible with the existing Ethereum infrastructure, such as development tools, wallets, and exchanges. At the core of the Ethereum blockchain, the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) allows the deployment and execution of smart contracts, enabling complex issuance rules for crypto-currencies like HJC and automating incentive structures. The EVM enables trust and protects the transacting parties against fraud. These powerful features and dynamic ecosystem make Ethereum a strong fit for HJC, and we are confident that this will translate to big success for the game.
The HeroesJourney™ game is in development with the core gaming engine complete.
The game development is in progress with the core gaming engine complete. The graphics are currently in development. The game completion date will be May, 2018.
HJC Pre-Sale Begins on February 15, 2018
Main token sale begins on March 15, 2018.
HeroesJourney Launch Party will be on May 15. Stay tuned for details.
The in game marketplace and global exchange will launch on June 12, 2018.

This is what makes me get up in the morning knowing that I am helping people and improve lives of those who need assistance”, says Roland Reznik.
This top quality, high performance chair is being cited as, “The Smart Choice for Mobility.” Made from durable aluminum alloy, the KD Smart Chair is the most convenient, chic, and portable mobility device leading the industry. It can be foldable in seconds for easy storage, transported in your car or SUV and can be used for travel. This unconventional, yet cutting edge piece of machinery allows people who live with disabilities to maintain traditional advantages with the optimal benefits that many of individuals take for granted.
