It’s no secret that blockchain has game-changing applications across multiple industries. Everything from financial records, supply-chain management, and business contracts can be upgraded using blockchain technology. The same is true for online gaming.

The reason?

Blockchain directly solves the gaming industry’s biggest problems, such as:

  • The lack of trust and transparency that’s pervasive in traditional gaming economies, has always prevented the industry from acquiring more serious players.
  • Centralized game developers and large corporations keep making homogenous games — the same genres, the same minor updates, and the same repackaged titles every year.
  • Online games are filled with bots and serious professionals. Opponents like these result in poor experiences for new players, preventing games from having augmented growth in their user-bases.

With decentralization in gaming:

  • Players are assured of the security of their items and digital currencies in games, thanks to immutable blockchains.
  • Any developer can showcase their talent and produce truly vibrant games in a wide variety of genres, because of low costs and no entry barrier.
  • The ability to Host your own game with the Host.Games platform at the click of a button, means that you can adjust the rules to your liking, ensuring fair and balanced gameplay.
  • Because of this, the worlds of gaming and blockchain are becoming increasingly intertwined. The crypto-gaming industry is expected to grow to a whopping $143 billion in the next two years alone.
