What if you could play rock-paper-scissors online with 50 people?

ZoyaNinja, a crypto-based e-sport contest app aims to make this possible. The beta version of the game is already available to the general public and those who are interested can try it out.

If you’re already into crypto, enjoy trying out novelties, and, on top of it, burn for online contests, ZoyaNinja is something for you.

Behind the idea, there’s a dedicated team of Hungarian programmers who have been delivering a wide range of products ranging from mobile apps, and web pages for AA groups, through the webshop of luxury watches to cloud-based temperature registration service for pharmacies.
