Many people see technology as a disruptor of social experiences. People rely on smartphones and computers more often, allowing them to be immersed in their own little world. However, Bridge Champ shows technology is also a facilitator of social experiences, bringing together millions of people through a convenient web and mobile platform. 

Social Experiences Meet Technology

One good way to ensure no one talks to you in public is by using headphones, earbuds, pretending to be on a phone call, or constantly looking at your phone or laptop screen. Society has evolved in an intriguing direction as our eyes are glued to screens, and our brains tune out everything around us whenever possible. To many people - especially the older generations - it is the fault of modern technology and how it turns people into "zombies" and "hermits". 

While it may be true technology has made humans a tad more selfish on the attention front, it has also changed the world as we know it. Working from home would be virtually impossible were it not for said technology. The same applies to e-commerce, ordering food online, planning trips, booking accommodations, etc. Everything has become simpler and more accessible, allowing society to be more social than ever before. 

That said, it is sometimes tricky to translate analog concepts into a digital setting. The game of contract bridge, for instance, is a very social and competitive activity. Players pair up with a partner to take on other paired players. The Japan Contract Bridge Federation actively promotes the game, and competitions attract high-level supporters and enthusiasts. It is a physical activity, yet one that suffered greatly during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

During that time, demand for a digital and online contract bridge solution started to accelerate. With the technology so often bashed for alienating people, Jelurida - through its Bridge Champ platform - successfully brings together players worldwide. It brings the social and competitive aspect of contract bridge to the modern era, accessible through any web browser or a dedicated mobile application. 

Bridge Champ Paves The Way

The Jelurida team has built Bridge Champ to ensure bridge enthusiasts can play their favorite game at all times. Whether it is against bots or other players, there is something for everyone. Extending that functionality to contract bridge enhances the social appeal of this blockchain-based solution. Moreover, it enables both new and experienced players to be social while relying on modern technology. 

Moreover, Jelurida's solution will boost the social aspect by integrating tournament support - accessible to players worldwide - and play-to-earn rewards. Enthusiasts get to play their favorite game and earn cryptocurrency rewards while doing so. It is a golden era for bridge clubs, families, and major tournament organizers to embrace technology without compromising the social aspect that makes bridge such an enjoyable game. 

Bridge Champ Intro

For contract bridge, Bridge Champ will receive a video conferencing update, enabling real-time communication between players. Contract bridge requires strong interaction between players, and that aspect will be modernized and digitized accordingly. Integrating this functionality will elevate the social appeal of Bridge Champ, enabling it to become a social network evolving around contract bridge. 

Bridge Champ successfully sponsored a contract bridge tournament in Israel last year. Over 1,000 players took part in the event and got hands-on experience with Jelurida's platform. It received a lot of praise and some high-quality feedback from players, confirming there is a growing interest in blockchain-based bridge gameplay. Ensuring the results and actions are transparent and validated at all times is a further testament to contract bridge's social aspects and avoids any friction or disagreements from the equation. 

More Features To Come

Tournaments add an extra layer of social activity to any game or event. Bridge Champ will receive tournament support later in 2022, enabling organizers to host traditional bridge and contract bridge tournaments. 

Bridge Champ Roadmap

These tournaments will include the cryptocurrency as mentioned earlier reards and will likely introduce NFTs containing game achievements to all players. These NFTs can be shown off, adding yet another social element to the Bridge Champ project.
