In today’s blockchain landscape, there are two areas that are growing in magnitude and capturing the eyes and minds of readers. And it’s not necessarily what you’d expect.

In the early days of “crypto,” coins, tokens, and organizations became popular for fleeting seconds at a time by proclaiming to be the (insert noun here) on blockchain. Blogging on blockchain. Carpentry on blockchain. Logistics on blockchain. Okay, that last one does have some real mainstream use cases, but that’s not what this article is about.

The two areas capturing the most mindspace today are decentralized finance (aka DeFi) and Non-Fungible Tokens…

The following all-new and game-changing features are being added to Peerplays via a hard fork…

The world could use a few wins right now.

Fundraising to support the unprecedented global crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has never been more important, with organizations critical to the response in need of urgent help.

But with much of the world on lockdown, traditional fundraising is not always viable.

We have spoken at length in the past about the future of fundraising, looking closely at both charities and sports clubs.

And now blockchain-enabled, agile fundraising is no longer an abstract concept.

We have been heartened to see international efforts utilizing this technology to both fundraise and deliver help…

It has been almost three years since blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies first came onto the radar of many involved in the igaming industry.

In that time, the conversation has progressed significantly, from an initial educational focus to a point where many operators and suppliers now have the expertise to consider innovative new ways in which this technology can benefit them.

Here are five areas where the most exciting developments are being made.

1. Random number generation (RNG)

Random number generators (RNG) are at the foundation of the vast majority of casino games. Yet very little attention is given to this…

At the start of February, the global gaming industry gathered in London for ICE, the world’s largest gathering of professionals from across the casino, sports betting, lottery and gambling sectors.

The conference welcomes somewhere in the region of 30,000 delegates — a scale that reflects the huge size of the world’s gambling industry.

The Peerplays team has been attending the show for a few years now, and across this period it has been fascinating to watch how perceptions of blockchain technology have changed among gaming executives.

At the 2017 event, held a few months before the launch of the Peerplays…

You may have seen the recent news that the Peerplays Blockchain Standards Association (PBSA) has made a significant investment in India-based start-up Avalon Meta, which will bring the worlds of higher education and competitive gaming together for the first time.

At the time, PBSA President Jonathan Baha’i described the investment as a “no-brainer”, adding that he was excited to see the Peerplays blockchain powering “the visionary approach” of Avalon Meta.

For some time now, Peerplays has been known as the gaming blockchain, and our work over recent months is beginning to show how a wide-range of products can find a…

Blockchain ranked as the #1 in demand hard skill for 2020

Is blockchain one of the (real) skills listed on your resume? Congrats! You are in demand.

For the first time, blockchain not only made LinkedIn’s list of top 10 hard skills companies need most but ranked as the #1 in demand hard skill, beating out other skills such as cloud computing and artificial intelligence. This highlights not only the increasing awareness around blockchain, but also wider applications of the skill.

How did LinkedIn calculate their rankings? They looked across their platform for the skills that were in high demand relative to their supply.

The demand for blockchain skills is high…

Are you a gamer?

Not very long ago, most people reading this would probably have answered with a clear ‘no’.

The term ‘gamer’ summoned up visions of a young man, perhaps a teenager, playing PlayStation, Xbox or PC titles late into the night.

Gamers were a niche, a subculture that was often seen as something a little bit strange.

But over the past few years we have witnessed a dramatic shift. Gaming has well and truly entered the mainstream.

Do you sometimes play Candy Crush to kill a few minutes while waiting for the bus? Have you ever bought a…

The term “blockchain” has made its way into mainstream media, daily conversations, and is a term that registers, on some level, by a large part of the population. However, it’s still a technology that is foreign to many and shrouded in mystery.

For this reason, there are many myths, rumours, and straight up lies about blockchain technology, what it can and can’t do, and what its future is. Are you buying into these 5 blockchain myths?

Myth 1: Blockchain is a solution for all the world’s problems.

If you are in any way involved with or interested in the world of blockchain and cryptocurrencies, there is a good chance you believe in the transformative power of great technology.

Here at Peerplays, we very much share that view.

Great tech can solve the unsolvable. It can make our lives easier and more enjoyable. And it can change the world for the better.

But fantastic, innovative, game-changing technology cannot fulfil its potential in isolation. To truly leverage its power, it needs support.
