CryptoFighters and WAX have announced their partnership so that Crypto Collectibles is tradeable on OPSkins marketplace. OPSkins is notable for being the world's leading marketplace for online video game assets that are tradeable with WAX tokens, Bitcoin, US dollars, euros and other currencies. With this integration WAX tokens will become more useful and gain popularity within gamers' community that in turn will make them join the ecosystem.

A new era of gaming has begun as Ethereum-based ERC721 tokens grow in popularity. CryptoFighters is at the forefront of this revolution and continually looking to push the boundaries and improve user experience as the crypto world continues to grow at lightning pace.

The marketplace becomes the standard choice for trading Crypto Collectibles (a.k.a. ERC721 tokens). Crypto Collectibles follows CryptoKitties to be added on OPSkins and be tradeable with WAX tokens.

The concept of virtual collectible items on the blockchain adds a fresh value proposition to the crypto world. We see OPSkins and WAX as key players in developing our new Crypto Collectibles marketplace, and we're excited to integrate CryptoFighters into that ecosystem.

ERC721 token-based games are peculiar because the protocol standard doesn't allow even the creators of the game to control it, thus the fighters as well as the player's progress cannot be hacked or stolen.

Ethereum VM May Have Vulnerability

The vulnerability is reported by NettaLab Twitter account
12 November 2018   146

On November 9, a statement appeared in Netta Lab’s Twitter account that the organization discovered a vulnerability in the Ethereum virtual machine that allows to execute smart contracts endlessly without paying for gas online. The researchers also allegedly turned to the operator of the American database of vulnerabilities, where they registered the corresponding discovery.

Netta Labs discovered an Ethereum EVM vulnerability, which could be exploited by hackers. The vulnerability can cause smart contracts can be executed indefinitely without gas being paied.

At Netta Lab's request, Google demonstrates the site of the netto.io project, which specializes in auditing smart contracts under the Netta Lab brand, but the Twitter accounts of the projects do not match. Note that the profile that reported the vulnerability was registered in November.

Many users expressed doubts about the authenticity of the information that appeared, but then the creator of the NEO project Da Hongwei said that he spoke with the CEO of Netta Labs and asked the researchers to audit the NEO virtual machine.

Nevertheless, Vitalik Buterin wrote on Reddit that this is a vulnerability in the Python-implementation of the virtual machine, which was first reported on GitHub 9 days ago. This means that the main clients (go-ethereum; parity and cpp-ethereum) are not affected.
