Parallel is a Sci-Fi trading card game empowering collectors to own their cards and game items through blockchain technology. Players are able to not only own cards and avatars outright as NFTs, but also earn Echelon's PRIME token by achieving victory with NFT versions of the cards. Participation is completely optional for users as the core game is free to play. This gives users complete control and flexibility in their level of control over their game assets.

PRIME tokens serve a broader role in gameplay than typical game-based mana or health - it serves as a means of exchange between players for collectables, services, and future content. As the inaugural game to utilize PRIME, Parallel TCG creates real value with rewarded currency. Parallel is a proof-of-concept, and it can be expected for future games to implement PRIME as the in-game currency, further boosting Parallel's influence on the future of blockchain technology in gaming.
Parallel’s use of NFTs to provide dynamic ownership, peer to peer commerce, and sharing gives users control over their digital trading cards in a way that hasn’t existed before in the genre. Furthermore, players can spend PRIME as well as Renown, a form of in game XP, to create new cards. This makes the players, not Parallel itself, the ones who control new card supply. Solutions like these for player ownership, sovereignty, and supply moderation are uniquely possible through blockchain technology and are pioneered by Parallel.
