We all remember the times when, in order to buy something in the game, it was necessary to tediously enter your credit card data for a long time. Those times are over. Everything on our planet develops. So does the gaming industry, which is a multi-billion dollar business, improving every day in all aspects. The news that the gaming industry was one of the first to adopt cryptocurrency — the currency of a new generation means that the game in our time has taken another step towards improvement. With the increasing popularity of multiplayer games such as Dota, where there is often a need to purchase unique items to complete the game, the security of conducting transactions comes to the fore. Using blockchain seems to be the ideal way to solve this problem.
Advantages of blockchain gaming platforms
This “cooperation” will be beneficial not only to the developers of computer games, but also will give huge advantages to players for whom these games are designed. Here are some of them:
First, making payments in cryptocurrency and its storage in games is more secure, so that players can easily play games without thinking about the safety of their resources.
Adopted Blockchain gaming will allow players to produce their own customized items with unique capabilities, and then resell them
Using blockchain gaming means that players will now be able to quickly pay for purchases in games.
Developers, in turn, are offered a great opportunity to monetize their games, etc.
Disadvantages of blockchain gaming platforms
However, there are some drawbacks to Blockchain gaming. Among them, the following stand out:
Currently, the main drawback of blockchain gaming is the small number of users of this option in games.
Another obstacle is that not many game genres can yet be developed taking into account blockchain.
It should also be noted that there is a scalability problem, that is, not all platforms support blockchain gaming.
And despite the fact that the integration of the blockchain into the gaming industry is still in its infancy and the first Blockchain games were very primitive, such as feeding a virtual pet, there is confidence that over time, such giants as EA, Konami, Activision Blizzard and others will also release their masterpieces, which will have an integrated blockchain system.
