Top Trending: Biggest Stories in Blockchain Gaming

It’s been an exciting week for blockchain gaming.

Along with seeing a number of new games undergo pre-sales, others are coming forward with alpha/beta testing.

Along with that, we had the pleasure of attending the App Store Foundation’s Blockchain Summit in Lisbon.

It’s always a welcome thing when companies look for new ways to collaborate, creating a game-changing ecosystem in the process.

But, without further ado, here are some of the top news stories from this week.


1) Hoard Introduces Plasma Dog: First blockchain game on OmiseGo

Whether you’re a dog person or not, they make fantastic companions. Now it’s blockchain’s turn to prove it, as Plasma Dog becomes one of the first blockchain games available using the OmiseGo network. (OmiseGO, Hoard)


2) What happens when user-generated content meets non-fungible tokens?

Anyone that’s played a game like Minecraft or explored the world of mods understands just how diverse and special user-generated content can be. (The Sandbox)


3) CryptoKitty creator, Dapper Labs raises $15 million in financing

CryptoKitties has been continually successful since its creation. The same goes for the Vancouver-based creator of the game: Dapper Labs. (CryptoKitties)


4) WAX is now officially on Twitch

From Bits to Emotes, a lot of things get exchanged on Twitch.

But how about blockchain-backed stickers, decals, and keys? That’s about to become a reality as WAX announces that Twitch streamers will now be able to receive items via its ExpressTrade. (Arielle Brechisci, WAX io)


5) How Everdragons is becoming a more expansive game thanks to POA Network

As with many blockchain games, the inspiration for Everdragons was the explosive launch of CryptoKitties in November 2017.

A year on, however, market sentiment is very different. Not that it’s dampened the enthusiasm of Patrick Rieger (CEO) and Jacqueline Hardy (CMO), two-thirds of the game’s founding team. (Jacqueline-Everdragons, Patrick - Everdragons, エバードラゴン-Everdragons- 日本公式アカウント)
